Hey everyone, thanks for bearing with us through our technical difficulties. This week on Carpe DM we talk about NPCs as party members, a giant demon who explodes when you kill it, and we delve into some of the inhabitants of the mysterious Turtle Mountain.

Guest: Josh Archer (http://www.thegameacademy.org/)

Monster of the Week: The Balor

Thank you so much to Uriah Findley and Matt Jacobson who threw us some after-last-minute audio help.
