No dungeons. No dragons (technically). Just six friends playing five characters, and a DM who does all the rest. For an hour at a time, bear witness to their ill-advised antics, goblin "courtship", and frequent butchering of simple words, as they make their way through the perilous land of Tophec on a quest to obtain for each of them a single wish - the key to what their hearts desire most.
Episode 38: Meetings and Beyond The New
All the world’s a stage, and this stage is on fire (and also lost it lighting for 15 minutes). The universe is ending, there’s a mythical pale ale dragon, a Category 5e hurricane, and a sea sharty loving pirate! If that doesn’t get you hot and bothered I don’t know what we can even offer at this point. A robot? Was there a robot? We aren’t sure. Maybe a warrior dog that stands on 2 legs named Khal Doggo! That definitely was included (just off screen and never explicitly mentioned). Either way, find out by listening!
Episode 37: On The Brink
"Speak to this Abishai but beware, he carries a terrible truth." "Oooh, that's bad." "But the truth will help save the party?" "That's good!" "The truth is about the inevitable destruction of the universe" "That's bad." "But Kahraba knows how to escape it." "That's good!" "Kahraba is still working to finish the machine needed to avert this crisis.......that's bad." "Can I murder hobo now?"
Episode 36: Jack and the Brain Stalk
Did you ever heard the Tragedy of Monk Jackie the Brainless? I thought not. It’s not a story her pupil would remember. It's a Jander side quest. Monk Jackie was a Drunken Master Monk, so powerful and so alcoholic she could use her ki to influence her hands to create fists... She had such a knowledge of martial arts that she could even keep the ones she cared about from getting sunburnt. The Monk side of martial arts is a pathway to many abilities some consider to be useless. She became so "powerful"... the only thing she was afraid of was being murdered by killbots, which eventually, of course, she was. Unfortunately, she taught her apprentice nothing she knew, then her apprentice forgot about her in his sleep. It's ironic she couldn't save others from death, especially herself.
Episode 35: Extremely Loud and Incredibly Hot
New year, new you. New episode, new Aul.

Wroth get half chub. Kobauld and Arthos trick enemies into circle for Wroth to teleport. Wroth now full chub.
