Episode 111 Preview: Where's Vox Machina Now?

Thanks to Mark Vinson (@markavinson) for this art piece!

It’s been two weeks since we left Vox Machina, who were traversing the ancient, cursed city of Thomara through the veins of the even more ancient undead titan carrying the even more cursed (possibly as ancient) city of Thar Amphala (with Vecna and his followers) toward Vasselheim.

Time Passed

Approximate time spent traversing this much of the titan (how long J’mon Sa Ord and the wyvern riders of Vasselheim have been providing a distraction against Thar Amphala’s forces): 2.5 hours.

  • (10 mins) Kiki used Control Water against the flooded stream
  • (7 mins) Party members were buried in a rock slide, "5 or so” minutes taken to unbury them.
  • (3 mins) The party fights against earth elementals. Upon victory, they gauge how long each footfall takes, and take note of the structures crumbling within.
  • (30 mins) The party takes a short rest to let Grog read the dwarven scripts to the sarcophogus.
  • (5 mins) Vax plays with the empty poison chests before picking the lock to the sarcophogus.
  • (1 min) The party deals with the wave of petrifying gas, kills the dwarven king, loot his grave, and get back out of the room.
  • (30 mins) The party continues as Percy attunes to the looted belt. Vax kills a nothic.
  • (30 mins) Grog sees that Percy’s belt is good and attunes to the hammer.
  • (3 mins) The party engages trolls before looting what little remains of the vault.
  • (30 mins) Grog reattunes to the Bloodaxe.

We pick up within the vaults of Thomara, immediately following a short rest.

Titan Speed

We’ve been told that the titan’s footprints were between 350-400 feet apart, and 150-200 ft wide. Using these numbers, we’ll estimate an average step length of 500 feet.
Using estimates from while the party was within the titan and gauging that there were no steps during battles, we estimate that there was approximately 20 seconds between each foot fall.
Using the above estimate of 2.5 hours spent inside the titan, this brings us to 450 steps taken over the course of the dungeon crawl thus far.
500 ft stride * 450 steps = 225k ft, or 42.61 miles.

This also places the titan’s current speed at 17.045 miles per hour.
