The group checks in with the Bronze Order Temple, gets immediately banned from Fran's ship, and reads some good, good memoirs. Corbin flips a bed (and his shit), Fran has a no-good very bad time in Bonetown, Maeri gets mad, and Slake is just the sweetest thing since sugar.
It's diiiiiinnneerrrr time! The secrets of the court unfold bit by bit as our heroes befriend various middle-aged women. Corbin does a good, Fran runs at least a thousand miles, and Slake catches a glimpse of a game changer.
The party splits up to determine the whereabouts of Lord Andolen, go to a cave concert and interrogate some pirates, and later they reconvene for dinner with the queen. Corbin immediately gets drunk. It's fine.
The Guardians dive headfirst into the intrigue of the court, a world of clothes and finery and verbal sparring. Corbin craves cold cuts, Fran prays for amnesia, Slake dresses like a Torva worshipper, Maeri gives nobility tips, just about everyone offends Princess Ranetta, and also they have lunch.
Kai’s journal reveals new secrets and new abilities, our heroes get some sick new clothes, an old friend shows her face, ancient lore has new meanings, and Maeri has...concerns.
Slake finally meets the Guardians, the city of Madrea begins to reveal its secrets, and several fancy invitations are received.
Corbin, Fran, and Maeri do battle on the sea while Slake fights their way through the city of Madrea. There are picks and puns and also that song from the Prince of Egypt, among other musical numbers.

Welcome back to Recap News!!! This recap is ideal for the listener who wants to skip ahead in the story, the listener who just wants a refresher, and the listener who left their podcast app playing only to angrily realize they're listening to a recap halfway through. Here is everything you need to know about Arc 3: The Gray Manacle and Arc 3.5: Final Chapter Prologue.
The voyage continues, and the mystery of the creature in the cargo hold unravels. It's just like all good family vacations: Corbin tries to set up a summer fling. Maeri gets motion sick. Fran spreads rumors about Corbin and a monkey. Gordon Ramsey is there.
A time between times, a story between stories, an arc between arcs. The party says goodbye to Danmar, among other things, and then ventures forth toward new adventures by sea. Like, is any of this for real? Or not? (It is.)
The infiltration of the Blue Palace is a challenging affair, even with the King of Danmar himself on your side. Stone golems, ladders, fry bread throwing cooks, Gray Manacle goons as far as the eye can see...and a complication in the form of a familiar face.
Maeri comes face to face with the people she's been avoiding, Laika mentors her mentor, Fran makes several bad jokes, Corbin paints a picture, Berand acts like an idiot, and the King of Danmar is a terrifyingly good sport.
The disappearance of a king is no small matter, and the sacking of the Blue Palace certainly doesn't help. Fran prays, Laika wrestles, and Corbin briefly becomes the most terrifying, wondrous creature in the whole wide world.
The Party of the Century. The Performance of a Lifetime. The Halfling Man Inside Our Hearts. All this, but the Guardians also encounter their worst nightmare, an all out brawl, a strange dream, and a king.
CAN OUR HEROES FREE THE ESTRAN PRISONERS, FIGHT A MAN NAMED GRAVY, HAVE AN EMOTIONAL REUNION, ENTER THE AVATAR STATE, DON INCREDIBLE PARTY LOOKS, AND GET BERAND AND FELINA TO FALL IN LOVE--ALL BEFORE IT'S TOO LATE TO GET TO DIAMOND'S CONCERT? Stay tuned to Dames and Dragons to find out!
The Guardians matchmake like their lives depend on it, report their findings on the Gray Manacle to the proper authorities, cause a grown man to pee himself, nearly adopt a child, and then go on a stealth mish.
