.  You qill download the correct episode now!#DnD5E @DnD_AdvLeague #Eberron In this podcast we review DDAL-EB-03 Where the Dead Wait a Season 9 Eberron, Oracle of War adventure and the third  adventure for Spoils of War of Adventures.  It is by James Introcaso (@JamesIntrocaso) and edited by Ashley Michaela “Navigator” Lawson.  I am joined by Bryce Lynch (@Bryce0Lynch) . We look at this homage’ to Night of the Living Dead, and we find that even though it is a good story with some good box text it is written so poorly it ends up being a below average adventure. That makes me sad. I wish I could honestly say how good this adventure is.  This is long. It lasts 1 hr & 48 min.

NOTE: I have fixed the link you will download the correct episode now!
