Rude Tales of Magic: Down for the Count
December 7, 2019 12:53 PM - Subscribe

Metaphorically at-sea and literally in-woods, our heroes struggle to survive encounters with the natives and wildlife of the Teenage Forest. Thirsty provincial royalty, swarms of altered beasts, secret societies, ancient mad scientists, and more await our heroes in the dark hollows of the great woods on this night. But will they all live to see the dawn?

Relistened this morning and literally laughed to the point of muscle spasm when de Bonesby revealed it had been five days since he drank blood at the impromptu 12 step meeting. That poor boy. It's often the little throwaway moments that hit the hardest on this one. Some of those throwaway moments will pay off, so pay attention.

I figured out why I had trouble differentiating de Bonesby and Stirfry at first, as they say, that is what he sounds like. I also kept forgetting Bellow at this point on first listen, probably because he is unconscious most of this ep. Loved his little grunts as people introduced themselves at the meeting.

And that's not getting into Stirfry calling Count Ivan a nasty freak, or burning him with that sunny day line, or Flipcup (FLIPCUP!). Wow Stirfry is really a masterful character, in that I hate him so much and love him so much at the same time.

Also - Cordelia using Mage Hand to stroke Bellow's cheek! She got it bad.
