Chapter 6: Tale of Hero Win

Falcore, in a time of inner turmoil turns to a magical potion to aid his abilities. Although the results are astounding, with every sudden success there is a dark side to go along with it.

Seriously? No-one else? Huh. Must be a slow night.

Well, this was pretty good, though it's always kind of weird seeing how horrible they all are to eachother.

But I guess that's kind of the joke. So glad I'm not part of that group. XD

That is the single best choice of song I have heard in a very long time. My day has now been made.

I've actually GM'd for a group like that at a uni club, the conclusion of the adventure to say the least was interesting...

That was damn fine cinematography. Loved the use of closeups and split screens and that part where Falcor (I forgot the player's name) was sped up relative to the others to highlight the drug's effects. Really liking the increasing characterization and plot progression too. All-in-all, keep up the good work!

And that's why you don't cut your Redbull with cocaine. Great episode peeps. In particular the rick roll killing spree was ridiculous.

GOtta say, the last two jokes with the staff findings pretty much made the episode for me.

I remmber something similar involving Live Wire (which could only be ogt at certain times so it worked out nicely). We ended up saying that it wore your body out, killing you fomr the inside.

...Only 7 posts? Wow, this deserves way more comments! Anyhow grand job guys, and lol the elf on a killing spree. That, and I would suggest in my honest opinion to not use so many Goblins, it'd kill the series quickly (but that's just my opinion). You guys still did a fantastic job.

Great show, hope you guys keep at it. I'm still waiting for another Lisa Foiles...

Bahaha, funny as hell! Loved the bit at the end:
"How do you know its oak?"
"I rolled an 8"
"8 isn't the oak number"

Also, Rick Astley's Never Gonna Give You Up made me laugh so hard.

Seriously hilarious from start to finish! This series keeps getting better and better! Keep up the great work Aardvarks Anonymous!

I like how the series now has an overall plot.

This is why everyone hates elves, god damn bunch of Mary Sues and Magic Junkies.

Drizzt is the worst of both of those groups.

OT: I have an elf like this in the group I DM. He can't hit worth a damn. (Missed 5 shots in a row versus undead, a favored enemy of his)
So I have a super powerful wraith take controll of his mind, and have him fill the Sorcerer and Fighter (who is played by his brother, and is his characters half brother) full of arrows. Almost killed the Sorcerer. That was fun!

But yes, the first one is ALWAYS free.

This series is underrated. Great work. And that music bit made my night.

Hmm, well, it's been kinda entertaining but I think this is where I get off. Lost interest, probably just isn't my cup of tea. Best of luck to the team though!

Best episode so far, amazing job. The music was great (you rick rolled us all).
"The first one is always free" just made me laugh my ass off. And as usual, great jokes and humor, keep it up:D

Holy smokes! That was wicked! I loved that bit when Rufus got upset. Cryson looked frickin wicked when he buested out of the cloak, and his smoke-bomb was awesome!!! Three exclamation marks awesome!!! The guys' reactions to his crazy noises and rolling was really funny.
Poor little Falcore at the end. But, you know, he did steal Thordin's staff and nearly get everyone killed. So. Y'know. Valid.
I'm loving this series, guys. I was worried too when it didn't show up on time, but am really glad it's still here.
And hey, no more turban-hair for the elf!

a Cyclops top spy?

How does that work?

BTW: this could be a good PSA for steroids.

This show is brilliant, one of the best series on The Escapist, good work guys.

Great episode guys :) - Kudos on the story line there. :) (and amazing quality).

So we got Rick roll or is it elf roll? Anyway good episode as always and that mishap sort of remind of some RP I have witness in the past.

Since this show got an actual plot it's been fantastic. I particularly like how the in-game plot links up with the real-world plot. Best episode so far, in my opinion. Keep up the good work!

Show became more serious for the last two episodes. More plot & less jokes. I like it. Well, not the "less jokes" part, but overall it's better this way.

This is easily the show with the highest overall quality on The Escapist. It began well but I didn't expect such a degree of progression! Well done!

Are you guys Aussie, if so i see your going to give doomsday arcade a run for it's money on best series :D.

I love it and the way that the group interacts is so so very true. Keep up the good work guys

TL;DW "Kids......don't do steroids"

But great episode. You guys put an outstanding amount of work into those LARP sections. Can't wait for more.

That was wonderful! I love how the plot is much stronger. You made some great jokes, put some drama inbetween the players, and gave the elf frind guy more reason to help the princess beat the bad guy. I can't wait to see what happens next! Keep it up!

Well they only said it was his top spy, not that he was actually any good at spying.
Maybe he doesn't even have any other spies at all?

Good work, especially on the rick montage.
Those silly elves and their magic addiction they should really try some group therapy...

I guess they forgot to put the blue filter on.

OT: This episode was well worth the wait!

I noticed that the wizard didn't have his glowing eyes AND the cyclops had NO effects makup.

Still great ep though!

yeah or it could be like his spy master or something else that doesnt need to physically do the spying

as for the drink im amazed that no one else called the potion pusher out on being the bad guy since it is a favorite formula for bad guys especially casters just look at snow white and the poison apple

Keeps on getting better and better guys great job

Re: cyclops - wasn't that the idea? He was in the basement, not the fantasy world. I love the idea of the DM actually getting up on his chair to play the part!

Aww... poor Felcore.

Amazing episode, funny, but also at points so serious, it felt i was watching a drama or something like that. Loved that episode :D!
But I really do hate when someone gets unbelievably overpowered in a D&D game, it just takes all the fun out of the game... But at least the elf had the decency to apologize, not like some real-life people who I've played with.
also, the cyclops make-up was epic.
