Imagine, if you can, waking up in a desert and fighting to survive the night. This is the situation our adventurers found themselves in. We have mentioned our “dream sequence” episode in the past and we glad to finally release it! We are joined by a new friend and get to fight a terrifying new foe.
Cast and Player Characters
After falling asleep at a tavern, Tum "Darkblade" Thumble, Thom the Dragonborn, and Aludra the Dwarf wake up in a barren desert not knowing where Junpei Iori is. A handsome young elvish man appears out of nowhere and announces himself as Aelar. Aelar claims that Junpei is in grave danger. The adventurers must save him, or he will surely be eaten!
The adventures discover Junpei tied to a post, obviously unconscious, with a snarling Young Brown Dragon stalking behind him. They roll for initiative. After Aelar professionally fires off a fountain of flame, the dragon dangerously breathes a stream of sand over the party. After several rounds, Junpei comes to. The dazed dragon reels, and Junpei uses his trademark Mage Hand to free himself. The adventurers discover once again that math is difficult. Just when it draws close to bed time, Thom lands a fierce killing blow.
Nearby, a rooster crows. The adventurers awaken, unharmed, and shake off the dream. However, they cannot explain why there is sand in their underwear
The adventurers have a strange dream, where a dragon hunter named Aelar tells them that Junpei is in danger. They fight a dragon that has captured him, and defeat it. Then they all wake up with sand in their underwear.
- First appearance of Aelar, and the "sand in the underwear" goof
