Field Trip to Red Larch Episode 3


Hello and welcome to A Field Trip to Red Larch. The Field Trip is the newest Actual Play series of podcasts from The Rpg Academy. In the Field trip we’ll be using a different set of systems and a revolving cast of players for a series of one-off / One-shot adventures. Unlike The Trials which are focused on learning the rules of the system a Field Trip is just about the adventure – so rules may or may not be used correctly.


For our first Field Trip Rocky (@LaffinJoker) takes our characters into the city of Red Larch which is the opening section of the Princes of the Apocalypse module for DnD 5e – so Spoiler alert if you have not yet read or played that module and plan on it.


Our cast for this adventure

Michael F (@Verjaeger1) playing a Water Genasi Cleric named Saltabe

Jared (@Jman091510) playing an Earth Genasi Druid named Bantor

Michael (@TheRpgAcademy) playing a Fire Genasi Wild-magic Sorceror named Val’Sean


I am continuing to work at adding sound effects, thanks mostly to @BattleBards but for this series I had to also find some sounds on-line at Freesound.org and TabletopAudio

  1. Audio was definitely better, the sound effects and noises didn’t run over the top of the speakers. That was some interesting role playing, and the story was kind of all over the place as to what was happening. You started about 3 different storylines, and then decided to quickly discard them for one reason or another, all of them valid, but it was interesting to listen to. I realize as a one shot from the module, that’s probably is what is keeping this from running as smoothly, however.

    1. Yeah,
      I think there are some great topics to pull out of this series of games about the differences between running a module vs. home brew. Good/bad on both sides. At some point I’d like to do that episode, I think. I’m very happy the audio issue was fixed (knock on wood) and i’m very happy with the quality of the role-playing. We were wasting a ton of time but almost all of it was ‘in-character’ though some of our jokes were borderline at times.

      Anyway, I’m glad you are enjoying them. There is one episode left but the ending is super-rushed. We may eventually go back to this module and do another section and over time complete the whole thing but there is nothing scheduled yet.

      Our next field trip should be the Ghostbusters game.


      1. I’m very curious about the Ghostbusters game. It seems like one that you can go crazy with and it would be a ton of fun, and being an 80’s kid, I have a wonderful connection to those great films (though I haven’t gotten into the cartoon or comic book yet). The downside with listening to it, is that if I think it’s awesome I’ll want to buy the system/books… So many games, so little time.
