The Guardians head back to Madrea to confront the culprit, but the Celebration of Life has already begun. Our heroes reunite with the Court of Spears, send Dodson Goodson on a quest, and cause quite the scene.
Threads converge as the Guardians spend the last of their time on Sparrow Island with a bloodthirsty ape, an inconsolably sobbing Corbin, and the apparent return of the patron god of the pirates.
The party splits even further. On Sparrow Island, our heroes discover game-changing information as Slake makes a deal, Maeri develops leadership skills, Fran pulls a Yoda, and Corbin...can take care of himself, ostensibly.
The Guardians explore Sparrow Island separately, and then together, and then apart again. Corbin steals, Fran lies, Slake kidnaps, but it is the land of the pirates, after all.
Our heroes set out for Sparrow Island, the pirate lair on the sea near Madrea. Maeri keeps herself safe, Fran is reunited with her boat, Slake gets caught up in an arm wrestling wager, and Corbin gets a shiny new name.
After a Dashing Diversion, the Guardians' investigation leads them to the house of Dirk Helmshire, Lord of the City. Fran has a bathroom situation, Slake offers to kill a man in cold blood, Corbin sees a grate from a great distance, and everyone feasts on off-boy hungry brand.
The Guardians speak with Queen Tenevine's wife, break fast with Falen, and Maeri discovers an aspect of her godhood she hadn't considered before.
The Guardians put on their detective hats and investigate Helmshire's poisoning only to realize the conspiracy goes far beyond their own intimate gathering. One of these beloved characters will say goodbye FOREVER: Corbin, Maeri, Slake, Fran, or Lord Dibibibi!
A one-shot set in the world of Ravnica that we produced for Podcasts of Ravnica: Join Golgari Swarm agents Yysyll, a dark elf necromancer, Eggie, a ranger convert from the Simic Combine, and Jared, a smelly little goblin, as they use the power of mushrooms and synergy to plunder an Orzhov Syndicate vault. Will our wretched team of coworkers be victorious, or will the beautiful cycle of death claim them on their way?
Fran spies around the palace and finally comes to a conclusion about Dodson Goodson. Corbin confronts his friend Nguyenian about "Lord Andolen." Then, the time for the Intimate Gathering is finally upon us, but beware: this party comes with a price.
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.
