The fourth episode of Cunning Action, the DnD actual play podcast with GM Jon and our band of level zero losers, Corwyn, Elgath, Sandie and Caspian. Having barely escaped their brush with the island's enraged flora, the gang decide to spend the night in the abandoned temple. What could go wrong?

Cunning Action Season 1, Episode 5

Zombie Slug-Fest

The fifth episode of season 1. The plucky heroes are finally at level 1 and must use their new-found strength to face a host of very soggy zombies. Could the undead rising from the sea have anything to do with those creepy visions they received? There’s no time to ponder… let’s get straight to the action!

Cunning Action, Season 1, Episode 6

Escape Plan?

Things get a bit weird when Elgath tries to “bond” with his fellow party members and Caspian is being pretty shady about those “wizardry” powers. Spoiler: he’s not going to be getting an owl from Hogwarts any time soon… The gang still haven’t figured a way off the island and they are licking their wounds after a fight with some soggy zombies. What to do but find provisions and, hopefully, a boat!

Cunning Action Season 1, Episode 7

Pirates and the Panic Room

The gang are still alive and fighting to escape the island. A nerve-wracking investigation of the old manor house leads them to an underground panic room and the promise, finally, of a sea-worthy boat...

Cunning Action Season 1, Episode 8

Troubled waters!

In this episode our heroes take their newly acquired boat out for a test drive, an endeavour which turns into a wild ride through a surprising location.

They find a stash of treasure, meet a foul-mouthed dwarf and ask the important question: do tortles (and porpoises) have mouths or beaks?

Cunning Action

Season 1, Episode 9

Having finally left the island behind, the party are getting to grips with life on the ocean. It's anything but plain sailing but our heroes do get chance to give those pesky slaver pirates a bit of payback. Expect some salty language!

Cunning Action Season 1, Episode 10

Take That and Party!

It's not all fighting and misfortune over here at cunning action. Sometimes our weary heroes even get a party. In episode 10, the gang meet up with some funky adventurers whose motto is: “We'll take that! And that! ... and that!” See if you can spot all the cheesy 90s pop music references ... if you must!
