Knights in Shining Horns & Scales • Realm Dungeons & Dragons Game • Episode 24

We're a barbershop that has a grooming product line, but it's all built upon an epic fantasy world, crafted from the fantasy of our world. We also play D&D in it every other Thursday. These are those stories.

Welcome back to the game! The gang is part of an epic quest across the north of the Realm to close the Void forever before a nefarious cult rips it to smithereens, and the horrific creatures from beyond overrun the world.

Tonight's Dungeons & Dragons game in the fantasy Realm of Beardsgaard is heavy on two of our party's favorite topics: creatures that become companions/pets, and standing up for the little guy against bullies.

The first problem this episode is how to herd a giant screaming goat, a box of combustible bees, and a herd of 20 mothcats across the northern mountains to the next settlement.

The next problem is a former acquaintance who turned out to be a skeezeball, on whom our party's Minotaur pulls a fast one to defend a handsome concubine of giant proportions, all while the Minotaur and the rest of the gang make some money on a busy night at the brothel (waiting tables, you need to be a professional for the other stuff).

The weirdo controlling Amrix isn't with us this week, but he's lurking around here with an axe and a love/hate relationship with Infernals. We'll see what happens with that next episode!
