Bucky and Drew share some changes going on and introduce our guest-filled "Meanwhile in Barovia" series starting next year.

Dec 22, 2017

Happy holidays! Have an early episode, on us! Today you can experience a new episode just like a Patreon subscriber: flippin' early. Like, Friday instead of Monday early. As an audience, you've been incredible and it's just a little something from us to you to say thanks. Hopefully this can get you through some solid commute time to wherever you may be headed. And if you're not headed anywhere, listen to it anyways? Or if you're around family, grab your closest boombox (boombox? Yes, boombox) and blast that s&%#.

Last episode, our party of classy individuals found themselves at a wizard's tower, thanks to Rictavio's direction, but they seem to be in a predicament. Ferguson is being testy with Rictavio, Kent seems to be hurt when he approaches the tower, and Ven can't [enter dance move here because I'm not savvy enough these days to come up with an appropriate reference, you kids and your sweet moves...]. What wiiiill they do?

Well...uh oh. Will this be the end for Hew and this party of misfits? It's the finale, so anything goes, right?

Our party has a guest! The famous Rictavio arrived from Madam Eva's neck of the woods to help out the group. But...wait a minute. He has a very different tone compared to the last time we heard him. People have too many secrets around here!

Finished with the forge, our party takes the 40 mile shortcut (yes, it's a shortcut) to the mine. It's a long journey, anything can happen. But will anything happen? Will our party be lucky enough to avoid the looming threat of Tinder? And what the hell is Otto doing?
