Sickness has ravaged the Heart Points family this week so we've reached out to actual family for this episode. This week Zack's brother Gavin (also of the Chasing Chocobos podcast) plays a treasure seeking thief navigating a "trap" filled dungeon.
We've (mostly) recovered from PAX Unplugged and we have our first guests on the show as we look back at everything we got up to. Zack and Diana are joined by editor Zack B. and Becky B. to talk about the games we played, the people we met, and the cats we bonded with on PAX weekend.
Ção channels the magical world to ask a god for help and to contact allies on the other side of Corpsetown. The magic may have tipped off her enemies to their plans that might need to change, but Ção is the first to admit she's not a strategistician. Next week we'll recap the amazing time we had at PAX!!
In episode 48 Ção discovers that entering a sacred site to partake in magical rituals makes some of her allies extremely upset. Zack and Diana also talk about the snow camel and their upcoming panel at PAX Unplugged.
In episode 47 Ção takes stock of her gathered fighting force and tries to figure out what to do about the dudes that can shoot fireballs . . . maybe get the water hoses? Also in this episode, Zack sings Christmas carols out of season and Diana sticks it to the patriarchy.
Ção "ain't got time for mystical stuff" in ep. 46 as she heads deeper into the cemetery to meet the head of the Gravediggers guild and drum up support for the coming fight. Diana and Zack also talk about other podcasts they've been appearing on lately.
Halloween maybe over but things are just starting to get spooky for Ção. She heads into the Corpsetown cemetery to rally support but more waits for her there than just living allies. Also Diana and Zack test out a new recording setup.
In our final 2018 Halloween Special we play Dead Friend by Lucian Kahn. Diana plays as teenager Skyler who is trying to bring back her friend Liam, played by Zack, from the dead. Make sure to listen to the content warning at the beginning of the episode to make sure it's for you as things get a little spooky.
In part II and the finale of our Lovecraftesque game, a cult leader wants his ring back, Carlos has a problem with glass, and Diana gets spooked. Join us next week for the last of our Halloween special episodes.

Things are starting to get real for Ção in episode 43 as she realizes that this uneasy alliance she's made between the gnolls and rebel city guard could fall apart at any moment. Diana and Zack also give some Oscar-worthy performances in this episode.
Things get ugly for Ção in episode 42 as she has to use her punches and kicks to free her friends. Also in episode 42, Diana remembers some important Fall anniversaries and your husband and GM has a birthday.
Ção is in pretty deep in episode 41 as the group navigates Corpsetown. Things go a little sideways when she goes on a lady-adventure side quest to rescue an old friend from the City Guard. Also in episode 41, Zack wants to play the game but Diana wants to win the game.
