Episode 18 - Pitching a Tent with Rath

You could say that things got a little hairy there last episode! But despite the best efforts of jerks and well dressed demons (we're pretending we don't actually know his name), our adventurers prevailed. With the next Emperor named, what will they do next? If only there was a mysterious riddle to figure out! We get to know the next emperor a little better. And Rath shares his backstory. This time, the only lie is telling himself that he's doing a good job with his character voice.


Episode 16 - What a Mighty Hole You Have

The final challenges for the throne begin! A mysterious riddle is imparted by an old friend. Old like, knew a while ago. But they were also old. Can someone be old age-wise when they're dead? Anyway, when the DM asks you to write down a riddle it's probably important. Will our players' dictation skills be up to the task? Blag drops some devastating insults. And a dastardly villain is revealed; which is mostly surprising in how long it takes our adventurers to figure it out. Get ready for one...


Episode 17 - And the New Emperor is

Who would have thought that reading from an ancient demonic scroll would have unexpected results? And Talon is an even bigger jerk than we knew? What other shocking revelations and startling surprises are in store for our adventurers? Hopefully someone will be left alive to find out who won the competition. It's boss fight time! We hope you enjoy the finale of our first story arc! Want to talk with us about all the crazy stuff that goes down? Join the discussion on Reddit at...


Episode 15 - Heisted as Planned

The heist is on! While Kort, Blag and Tor work out the best way to survive an impending clash with armored horrors, Rath daringly feuds with a bartender. When a room full of mysterious treasures is revealed, will Rath encourage the others to push their luck and risk certain death? Will he find the courage to overcome the peril of a poorly mixed cocktail? What crafty escape plan does Tor have up his sleeve? It's time to steal stuff!


Episode 13 - Love is in the Air

Having survived Kort's repeated attempts to be eaten by mimcis, our adventurers get a little time around town. Tor gets to know a new friend while Rath seeks divine intervention. They are quickly presented with their next challenge which leads Blag and Kort to get creative in order to bypass a tricky situation. The Trials of the Throne have begun and the competition is about to get awkward!


Episode 12 - Rath Tells a Lie

Being stuck with a cursed ring has really lightened Rath's mood. He's just so nice now! He continues to shower the other adventurers with praise as they delve deeper into the cave. What surprisingly refined horror waits for them? Who are the Aberrations? And will Tor do something impulsive that could get everyone killed? Yes, yes he will. But Rath seems fine with it! Time to enter the Pit of Darkness.


Episode 11 - Kort the Persuaded Persuader

Kort is having a rough time in the Lichstone mine. Maybe he can turn it around? Surely he won't keep touching the things that want to eat him! And Rath makes a decision he instantly regrets, but you won't hear that from him. We hope you're enjoying the show! Please consider reviewing us on iTunes!

Episode 10 - The Boys Fight a Box

The notes for this episode description say "Our adventurers engage in deadly combat with a box". That must be a typo. Or maybe a metaphor? Oh wait, it also says "the box has tentacles". Okay, that makes more sense. Container combat time!


Episode 9 - Blag's Not So Good Day

Our adventurers very cautiously approach the domain of the Wizard King. They discover an ominous lever that can only lead to bad things. One of the party will die! Is it Blag? No. But it could be! It isn't.


Episode 8 - Take Him To The Farm

The Trial of Preservation begins! The previously generic quest giver is starting to show some personality, and it turns out he sucks! He gives our adventurers the power of life or death over a complete stranger. Who thought that was a good idea? Oh yeah, the guy who's a jerk.


Episode 7 - Technical Success

The very public appearance of a certain imp last episode encourages Rath to overcome some of his trust issues. We have a brief agricultural interlude with Blag. And our adventurers take on a mission to fight back against the Wizard King. With an episode name like Technical Success you know that probably doesn't go so well!


Episode 6 - Beelza-bow

A new set of challenges reveal a mysterious individual from Kort's past. Things get dramatic when Rath faces down an old enemy. What dark secrets will be revealed? And get ready for a knock-out performance from Beaker!


Episode 5 - Kobold Kanyon

Can our adventures pull off the impossible Kobold Kanyon job? What surprising Kobold sleeping habits will they discover? Also Blag gets violent. Disturbingly so. But that's probably just a one time thing and not a trend.


Episode 4 - Fast Cash

Romance in the air! Or is that the smell from all the elephants? Let's say both because Rath has an admirer! Blag orders some milk. Kort does some shady fundraising. And Tor, well Tor continues to be the most effective member of the group.


Episode 2 - Bunk Buddies

The Trial of Defense begins! Introductions are made, Blag gives a guy a hard time, and battle against the forces of the Wizard King begins. Will the day be won? Will they almost get completely stomped in their first fight? Join our adventurers as they undertake their first mission as roommates!


Episode 1 - The Beginning

Our premier episode in which we meet our adventurers. Dark pasts are alluded to! A mysterious empire that magically abducts people as a narrative tool is revealed! Dice are rolled very poorly. And an epic quest begins!
