Rude Tales of Magic: Ride or DIE for Stirfry

If the series just ended with Stir Fry singing Hey Soul Sister I would be perfectly at peace with that


Also thereís no catch all dnd actual play thread so Iíll say it here, the latest episode of dungeons and daddies gaslit me so hard I legit had to pause it more than once and be like, no Iím not going crazy this doesnít make sense, was a solid sode

I like Come at the King so far. What are the odds that Fredrick, Grimothy's Forever Friend, was eaten at last years power ball?

TBH I'm finding Smellulus really hard to listen to (and I too would Die For Stirfry). The voice just hits my brain wrong.

Iím glad someone else feels this way. I donít know what it is, but the closest I can describe it as hearing someone in the process of developing a voice but they arenít quite there and it isnít a finished product.

Smellulus's voice works for me, but I hear it as him trying to redefine himself. That said, I also don't think he ever defined himself as an adult in the first place. And now he's doing this awkward thing of trying to fit in and be the person people expect him to be as if he's pushing his boundaries and doing things for himself.

I was thinking about this more, and I think the issue for me is, when he starts talking you can't be sure if he's going to keep talking for another 5 seconds or another 3 minutes, so I wind up tuning out.

I wonder if Smellulus was skimming from the top at his old job, or if he had hidden debts. Maybe a drug or alcohol problem.

I wondered if they were going to make the emperor cool after his description in episode 2, because that seems to go against Bransonís general ethos, but of course he isnít. Just as Hammerhair is an almost humanly beautiful bugbear, the emperor is an almost bugbearly handsome human

I'm not a big fan of Come at the King compared to the normal campaign, but episode 3 is one of the best podcast episodes I have ever heard. Pure gold from start to finish.

I keep forgetting the minotaur guy is in the party, and constantly mix him up with Smellulus until the sad apartment bit.

Guys what if Smellulus dies and Torrin, as his adopted daughter, becomes Empress and breaks up the Empire

I gotta be honest, I kind of don't blame Smellulus for making the choice he did.

Also, he got to kiss a dragon and a free turtle, things are working out well for him so far.

Edit:

Oh! The turtle is named Little one! and that huge turtle in the sewer was named Little one! Calling it now, same turtle.

I wonder how much of the plot swerve was due to them realizing this sub campaign may have to go longer than expected due to this being a country of fuckups.

Edit: The US that is, not the other one.

In Rude Talks of Chatting they said theyíll be going back to the main campaign when Come at the King comes to a natural conclusion since they know the pandemic is going to last a while and theyíve gotten comfortable recording remotely now. Theyíre not going to stretch it out because of the lockdown.

How are the bonus podcast episodes? I was considering signing up to the Patreon but didn't realise $10 a month was the lowest tier that got those, which is a bit too much for me right now.

That's good! I stopped after the first ep of the miniseries because I just didn't like it as much as the main arc, but if it's going to be pretty short then I'll give it another try. (Doesn't help that the last episode of the main arc was one of the best episodes of a roleplaying podcast I've ever heard.)

The Rude Talks of Chatting are interesting behind the scenes stuff that go into what Branson had planned vs what ends up happening, how they use their experience doing improv together in roleplaying, the session zero for Come at the King, a few deleted scenes etc.

The Vampire the Masquerade one off was amazing and almost worth the price of admission alone.

Iíd say itís worth paying $10 once and downloading all the content if you canít donate monthly.

I do enjoy the Come at the King stuff, but it does have a much different tone. It's kind of like Naddpod and Trinyvale, much better in small doses. I don't know if I'd keep listening if this wasn't going to just be a short term thing. The harpy is loving hilarious to me though.

And I'm relistening because I just signed up for the patreon, and I do enjoy the original characters more.
