Episode One: Fake Beards & Broken Necks

You can check out the first episode of Flintlocks and Fireballs here: Fake Beards and Broken Necks!

In the sleepy port town of Scarroll’s Cove, three strangers are brought together by chance, fate and the lack of seating space in a cramped bar. When privateer (not a pirate!) halfling Corzin Horhace, drow bard Celestia Stardust and mysterious bearded stranger Scamp become aware of a series of brutal murders, danger lies overhead…

Each week on Flintlocks and Fireballs, join actors Robbie Bellekom (as Scamp), Sam Burns (as Corzin Horhace) and Ellie Sparrow (as Celestia Stardust) with Dungeon Master Jason Phelps for adventure in the Napoleonic world of Calcinea, a setting for 5th Edition Dungeons & Dragons.

Music Credit: Basically everything except the theme tune is by Kevin MacLeod. Rated 15+ (We swear like sailors.)

We’re Nearly There!

It’s the 10th of July!  In just under six hours the first episode of Flintlocks and Fireballs will go live, so as a little treat here’s a map of the region of Calcinea we’ll be starting in – the Dragon Coast.  Follow our party on this little globetrotting map as we chart their journey episode by episode across the seas and shores of Calcinea!

The first episode won’t go live until 7pm GMT (6pm British Summer Time), but when it does you’ll be able to find it here (and eventually on iTunes):

Cast Announcement: Ellie Sparrow

Ellie Sparrow will be playing Celestia Stardust, a drow elf bard.

Ellie Sparrow is an actor, playwright and co-director of theatre company Break the ‘Verse. Their first arts council funded play was on at the end of last year, which she cowrote, aided heavily by red wine. 
Ellie Started role playing when the DM of this campaign made her 4 years ago. She thought the whole thing would be incredibly lame and agreed that she’d try it once. She has never been more wrong. It was not lame. And here she is 4 years later on a D&D podcast.

A Map of Calcinea

This map is now outdated and, well, has more than a few problems with it.  Stay tuned for a more comprehensive map on Friday 13th!

It’s just over a week until Episode One of Flintlocks and Fireballs is released, so here’s a little bit of background to the setting.  At the campaign’s start, the year is 1797 (by the Regency Calendar) in the world of Calcinea.  We’ll go into a little more detail about where things are and what things are as time goes on.  For now, all I’ll say is our campaign will start in the north-western edge of the map, along the Dragon Coast.

Cast Announcement: Sam Burns


Sam Burns, playing halfling sailor Corzin Horhace, is a level 29 human, been playing D&D for about 9 years. It started off as a Nerdy oasis in the desert of first year drama school and has progressed from there to a major obsession.

When the opportunity came to combine it with his first love of acting he leapt at it like Halflings leap at second breakfast.

Sam is currently in Circle of Spears’ latest production, Outside the Box, in Barnstaple, June 28th, 30th, Jul 1st. https://bit.ly/2lChwf1 #DnD
