I'll join the chorus is saying it is awesome to have you on the forums with us Tinzien. Especially with your willingness to have an open discourse, it is awesome to see. If someone were not quite as ambitious as Almariankinght about starting Death D4 Dishonor do you know of any good jumping on episode other than ep 1?
It sort of depends on what you like, but let me try to break off chunks and let you decide. This is sort of like finding a spot for someone who is going to be variably late to a Lord of the Rings movie marathon - you'll get an idea of the characters and go from there but there might be a couple "huhs" in there. Not a problem though. I'd suggest at least listing to the recap episodes which are scattered in the first 100 episodes (and listed clearly as such) if you start higher on.
I'm a sucker for the holiday episodes which are totally out of cannon but a lot of fun. - Episode 87 is a take on the classic Grinch who Stole Christmas story mixed with Dr. Who - Episode 102 is an April Fool's Day story harkening back to the old 1964 Scooby Doo cartoon. - Episode 130 is an action filled Christmas special adventure.... on a train... with fisticuffs... - Episode 160 is a video only episode. Don't ignore the stories of children.
Episode 41 - 43: The party first encounters the Drow in a big way, we find out one of the cast is a closet poet and also a creative use of spiders. *coughs*
Episode 53: I imitate one of the player's voices that he uses for his character in order to have said character meet his past or present self.
Episode 64: An emotional episode that showed that just because you see Monster X, does not always mean it's a monster.
Episode 69 - 70: The Slurp Slurp stories which set up towards the Trial arc as well as my take on The Seven Pillared Hall.
Episode 98 - 99: Getting treasure is not always easy. A party conflict set of episodes.
Episode 103 - 108: Want to see what a perhaps "sentient" Ioun stone can do to a Drow city?
Episode 110 - 116: The Trial of the Chained God series mentioned in the DMBlock episode.
Episode 118 - 119: What happens if the party wakes up in different bodies?
Episode 126 - 131: Death-knights.....
Episode 132 - 133: The party meets The Green Dragon Empress for the first time.
Episode 140: The party has to make up stories that would be find in the mental hive mind history of the Kalashtar (Zanatari the battle cleric's race)
Episode 143 - 145: Being awesome and having a town are cool, but sometimes you get forced into the role of playing Mayor or a parent to what you have wrought.
Episode 146 - 147 AND 156: Spooky episodes involving charmed or murderous animals. The ending was delayed until 156 due to some other stuff happening.
Episode 148 - 154: The Kalashtar story arc. A very complex storyline and an errand that I thought would take 20 minutes of game time but turned into 7 episodes.
Episode 155: The party encounters something that a future version of one of the party might have created.
Episode 158 onward : Current story arch and some stuff involving a lizardman outpost and a possibly cursed or possessed box. Leads into the jailbreak stuff, etc.
It might be possible that you were too helpful! Haha. This definitely gives me more than enough to go on for finding a starting point. Just want to thank you again for joining in on the forum goodness, and being so open about everything, it is a breathe of fresh air, and I can't wait to hear more about your story on Death D4 Dishonor.
Currently the only gods that are or will be known by next session will be Avandra (my npc kobold cleric) and Bane. The group found a necklace with the bane symbol made of bone and they have yet to make a religion check on it.
I will weave as many gods as possible in my story. The town they are at has a temple which is basically a multi worship place. I did this since the town is A trade town. It would make sense to one place where every one can worship. Guards stand out and inside just to make sure no one steals anything or tries to sacrifice beings.
So i look forward to more of these to give me more ideas and better understanding of the d&d gods. Thanks.

If you want to see the episode descriptions a bit easier than on the website, you can look at our RSS feeds.feedburner.com/deathd4dishonor and see if something looks interesting and go from there.
Well, thought it would be important to say: I have finally reached episode 173 and am now completely caught up with DD4D after several months. Enjoyed it thoroughly, though it has probably completely destroyed the way I use some D&D rules. Great podcast that is both entertaining and destructive. Great job...
