One ordinary night in the Horseshoe Tavern, the bard goes off-script to entertain some drunkards with an epic tale - music, mystery, missing children, and one hero’s quest to save his beautiful city. But heroes and storytellers alike are about to find out that all is not as it seems in the idyllic, high-elven city of Cedrela. And, with a lightning-whitted, flirtatious, no-b******t, trickster bard telling the tale, how could it be anything but a full-fledged, Broadway-style musical?

Can’t wait for more!

This is SO good. I can’t get enough of this first episode, I’ll be shouting it from the roof tops

Can’t stop listening!

I saw this episode dropped a few days ago while I was getting caught up on my podcasts I had taken a break from. Finally listened today and I’ve already played it twice through! I can’t wait for more. Will have “the big bad” stuck in my head all night. I love it

Queer joy and abolitionist mindsets 💕

So good! Reminds me of Galavant. Solid music, interesting characters, and a story that reminds us all to reflect on our world. Looking forward to more!
