At Least I’ll Be Warm - Undercommon Taste Episode 35

May 5, 2021

We begin our tour of the Inner Planes this week, discussing the Elemental Planes of Fire and Water. We look back into 2e Planescape and the 3.5e Manual of the Planes to build on the meager details we have been given in 5e, to give you the tools you need to send your players to deal with the efreeti or the marids.

The Ghost Roads Between - Undercommon Taste Episode 34

April 28, 2021

This week, we shift our planar discussion to the transitive planes: the Ethereal and Astral. We discuss how they work, what hazards you might find on them, how you might get to them without 7th-level spells, and some adventure hooks if you want to linger for a while. 

We also geek out over Astral Dreadnaughts for a bit.

Resistance is Overrated - An Interview with u/MothProphet - Undercommon Taste Episode 33

April 21, 2021

This week, we invite Reddit creator Elliot (u/MothProphet) on to discuss the topic addressed in the bulk of his Reddit post An Exploration into 5e's Damage Types, in a little under 6000 words. We talk about the differences between devils and demons, why beasts don't like loud noises, and returning to a time when Cold Iron meant something to the fey. Topping it all off, we have the return of the Weird Bug Generator, where the dice help us create an oversized druid grove parasite.

Doom and Gloom - Undercommon Taste Episode 32

Doom and Gloom - Undercommon Taste Episode 32

April 14, 2021

This week, we dive back into our planar travels with a journey to the Shadowfell, discussing what you might find there and how you can get your players through into the Material Plane's dark echo without resorting to 7th-level spells.

A content warning for this week's episode: the Shadowfell is a gloomy and depressing place. As such, any discussion going in depth in the Shadowfell will inevitably turn to topics that may negatively affect some people, especially those with PTSD or depressive conditions.

The Kudzu vs. God’s Lawnmower - A Collaboration with Worldbuild With Us - Undercommon Taste Episode 31

April 7, 2021

This week, we are joined by Rob, Chris, and Daniel from the Worldbuild With Us podcast to build a scenario in the world we helped design on their podcast last week. Will you side with the Archdruid of the Kudzu, avatar of the goddess of nature, and its Bloodthorn Basilisk, or will you defend the Springstrider with Captain Marut and the Inevitables?

We highly recommend listening to part 1 on the Worldbuild With Us podcast, here: Mowed Down by the Springwalker

Faerie Tales and Secret Doors - Undercommon Taste Episode 30

Faerie Tales and Secret Doors - Undercommon Taste Episode 30

March 31, 2021

This week, we start our in-depth tour of the planes by visiting the Feywild, talking about prominent locations within, and how to get there. We also spend no small amount of time discussing how to utilize the Feywild in your home game, and which classes we feel would benefit most from having a jaunt into the Feywild.

This episode ran a bit longer than normal, and we apologize for the audio quality dropping out in some spots. This is the last episode we are recording using our old method (using OBS to record over Discord), so hopefully our new method will result in more uniform, clearer audio in the future.
