Glass Cannon Podcast: Episode 75 – A Tomb with a View

Loyalty.  Strength.  Duty.  Baron, Umlo, and Ingrahild speak these words aloud and the door to the tomb of Nargrym Steelhand, the Giantslayer – the very namesake of this adventure path – opens…and then we get “And we’ll see you next week.

Curse you, Troy, and your expertise at breaking off each episode in such a place that leaves the players anxious for the next session and us listeners yearning for the next week to pass quickly!

Here is Episode 75 – A Tomb with a View.

With the help of the dwarves, the heroes have breached the final resting place of Nargrym Steelhand.  While in awe of the majesty of the sepulcher, they soon discover that not all is what it should be in the tomb of the famed giantslayer.

Don’t forget to drop in on their Tumblr page as well, where you can find all sorts of goodies like fan art, depictions of the both named and unnamed enemies and NPC, character sheets, and even “We Are Stupid” posts in which the guys fess up to getting the rules wrong occasionally – and who doesn’t?!

New episodes of the Glass Cannon Podcast are released every Tuesday (that’s today!). And it’s not too late to jump in from the beginning:

Glass Cannon Podcast Episode 1Introducing Thomas Exposition is here.

There is even some new content released on Thursdays – Cannon Fodder – that provides a little behind-the-scenes coverage and will help you get to know Pathfinder a little better, and perhaps entice you to begin a campaign of your own.


What is the Glass Cannon Podcast? Well, in the spirit of old school Dungeons and Dragons, a collection of five super-nerds (Joe O’Brien, Grant Berger, Matthew Capodicasa, Skid Maher, and Dungeonmaster Troy Lavallee) emerge blinking from their parents’ basements to engage in an Actual Play campaign of Paizo’s epic new Pathfinder adventure path, Giantslayer!

Foes will be vanquished, beers will be dranken, and characters will almost certainly f*c&ing die.


The Glass Cannon guys are playing Pathfinder, a fantastic roleplaying game that began as an offshoot of the 3.5 edition of Dungeons and Dragons. You can learn more about Pathfinder here or get your own copy of the 1st book of the Giantslayer adventure and start a Pathfinder campaign of your own!

Finally, if you want to know how the Glass Cannon guys got together, check out their origin story.

Head over to Facebook and tell the Glass Cannon guys how much you are enjoying the adventure. You can find them here.

Happy listening!
