Claimed
An Actual Play and Comedy podcast featuring Kyle Overturf and Michael Rempfer
 10 people rated this podcast
Intelligence Check is an actual play series that's big on the laughs. It's a light-hearted show, using D&D 5e rules, set in the homebrew world of the Lichstone Empire. We've got dark and mysterious backgrounds, defensive elephants, weird gambling, oddly specific kobold slaughter, and tentacles. Way too many tentacles.

Episode 56- Simon Says
After patting themselves on the back to celebrate all the danger they heroically ran away from, our adventurers ready themselves to confront the Baron and rescue Tor's daughter. They heal up and confer with the vampire hunter they just saved for any pro tips. But the last time this guy went against the Baron he ended up as a zombie. So, he may not be the best resource. Maybe the Baron isn't all that he's been hyped up to be though. He's probably got some stereotypical bad guy voice just to seem tougher than he really is.As the party enters the final chamber, will the Baron mind the interruption? How will he feel about these guys going through all his stuff? Will the party try diplomacy or just start throwing hammers? And will Rath be able to stop Kort from saying something they might all regret? It's time to confront a Vampire Lord! Are you enjoying the show?

Episode 55- Can't Lose Health if You're Dead
Last episode we left our adventurers in a room with a creature that may or may not be a dwarf child. As I was sitting here thinking of how best to describe the party's imminent destruction, I did what any professional episode describer does and got distracted by the internet. There I found an article about D&D enemies that appear weak, but are really nasty. Interesting, especially given the situation our team finds themselves in! But then, I saw the image they tagged on to it. A glorious squirrel wielding an axe and a shield, riding through a battlefield on a frog. Now they had my full attention!Scrolling through the article revealed no dwarvish girls that are clearly a death trap. In fact they even had a vampire on there which was unexpected seeing as how we know one is waiting to just obliterate our adventurers at the end of this mausoleum. Sure they may look harmless, but even our team of not-quite heroes knows vampires are bad news. "Odd", I thought, but I scrolled on as my sights were set on the majestic war squirrel. And despite all the horrors we've witnessed in this current dungeon, the true horror of this story is how I came to the bottom of the article with no mention whatsoever of this beautiful warrior. I had been struck down by the biggest fiend of them all, the clickbait! So yes, things happen in this episode. Many of them are awful. Like Kevin's lost heroic moment. And Kyle's lost time making encounters our team skips right by. I'd love to tell you all about that, but right now I'm too busy researching Squirrelfolk for my next D&D character. Grab your acorns, and get ready for winter! Not because of anything that happens in this episode, but you know, squirrels.Are you enjoying the show?

Episode 54 - Heal the Dead
As our adventurers continue their quest to save Tor's daughter from the clutches of the vampire Baron Von Uberdorf, you just have to admire the artistry with which he has created this gauntlet of creepiness. Clearly he has a passion for dungeon design! First the hedge maze to even get to his manor was just crawling with undead encounters. Then he had that giant collection of treasure guarded by a freaking mummy. And now this mausoleum, where every turn leads to another twisted terror. Each new room is basically an 80's metal band album cover. Hopefully Rath is taking notes for his dungeon business, because he's getting one heck of a free lesson here. Wasn't the Baron trying to take over the world? Something about traveling around and starting vampire outbreaks? Sure, he's probably immortal, but who has the time for opening global vampire franchises and so much dungeon planning? It makes you question what you do with your time if he can pull all this off. He's got plots and schemes, a giant house complete with hell hounds, a healthy social life, and dudes with heads that pop off when they become awful bat creatures. And here we are just playing Dungeons & Dragons.Are you enjoying the show?
