You know what, I'm waiting for one of the guys to find out where Robbie ('Pringles') is being held, because I'm pretty sure that dude found out about something nefarious going on at the BOB...

I really hope The Adventure Zone serves as a gateway to Griffin writing a bunch of fast-paced, hijinks-filled, Scott-Lynch-ian fantasy/sci-fi novels. It's such a pleasure to watch him build his storytelling chops on TAZ and I think this arc has been exceptionally good even by good storytelling standards.

Ahhhhh I knew Kravitz wouldn't be happy about this arc!

So...left or right

Great ending. And now I'm all caught up on the Adventure Zone and have to wait for the next episode like everyone else. I mean, fortunately, its only going to be like a day, but still.

So...left or right

Justin's deliberation over taking the left or right track reminded me of the great MBMBAM "cursing a sword" bit.
