Episode 381 - Stepping Up to the Plate

While we do not sanction the destruction of Dodge’s bone cards we are not going to pass up an opportunity when it presents itself. Sure, we feel bad for Dodge, but like, we need to win these bone card battles in order to save the multiverse.

Long Story

Lahni and The Sorrowful Man return to the group, and join the others up in the new Airship, the BTS. Toby is in the shape of the Elder Brain from last ep (with curly, orange hair), before changing into the shape of Rowan's father, King Theonjon Dayne (also with curly, orange hair). He then turns his attention to the two Githyanki he captured. They introduce themselves as Oliver Hairmouth, and Angel la Pamela Sanjerita. They reveal that they were following the orders of one of the other Gith that Toby fried to a crisp, and their mission was to interfere with the Bones game today, Tonya Harding style. They offer to join the BTS crew, as long as they get paid. At the insistence of Angel la Pamela Sanjerita, they decide to go check the boss's quarters to see who sent him.

They are able to find the Captain's Log, and learn that they were hired for 10,000 gp to take out Dodge Grabbit, by Fuckin Gary. Skud finds 2 of Dodge's cards, with a third one having been burnt up by the Sphere of Annihilation (it's some kind of Bone Dragon). The other two are a Bone Hydra and a Greater Skeleton. They suck. The party splits up to find this 10K. Lahni and Rowan check out the hold, and, while Lahni is reminiscing about the good ol days back home in Arkensaw, Rowan finds the gold.

She returns to the group and tells them (should have kept it to herself), and then heals Dodge Grabbit back to consciousness. They tell him of the destruction of his cards at the command of Fuckin Gary. This prompts him to want to take revenge on his rival. Skud volunteers to compete on his behalf, since Dodge doesn't have enough cards. Also, when Lahni and her brother went to the commission earlier, they were told that Skdu couldn't compete because Fuckin Gary already had a challenger (Dodge). They turn to the Sphere of Annihilation, and after some discussion on what to do with it, they find a cage to put it in that is able to hold it safely. They also decide to go to the commission to get Skud a battle with Fuckin Gary.

Short

The party convenes on their new airship, the BTS, where they learn from the two remaining Githyanki that they were hired by Fuckin Gary for 10,000 gp to sabotage the game. Rowan is able to find the gold, and revives Dodge, who tells them that they should take his place in the competition later today! That's basically all that happened. There may or may not be hints that this was the ship Junpei Iori left on, and he may or may not be dead. We don't know.

Trivia

  • The person Rowan respects the most is her father
  • The party has decided to start a Dippin' Dots business called "Treacle Tips"
    • Lest not forget that Dippin' Dots have already been invented by Chilli Manilli
  • Toby comes across a baby Astral Dreadnaught in a cage, and decides to take it under his wing. He names it Doug, and I was waiting for Michael to say no to this so that I wouldn't have to mention it in this Wiki, but he didn't, so here we are...
  • There's a cleric in the brig who looks exactly like the opposite of the Young Pope
  • There was a parrot in a cage in the crew's quarters that the party ignored
  • The Bone Splash ## championships are going down, so the next one is 41, instead of 43, as one would expect
  • Toby asks if Dodge wants to join the Tower of Grey, but I don't think he does. Instead, I think the ToG just sponsors Dodge, paying him to wear their T-shirt
  • Fuckin Gary has a lich
