"Are the Slaadis just peacefuls? Are we not actually in combat with them, but we just think we are? And we're just, like, slaughtering them as they go about their day?" ~ Thom the Dragonborn, in a rare moment of clarity

"I wish that we could get the rights to play [U Can't Touch This] everytime it was Hammer Time." ~ Nika Howard, after Aludra rolled really well to use her warhammer

Episode 138 - Slaad Graab

Having been slightly derailed on their quest to join the Army of Bahamut, the gang decides to actually listen to the giant, menacing dragon and tracks down some Slaadi. Things get real weird real fast and our heroes have to take a moment to wonder “are we doing the right thing?” They have been told that the Slaadi are bad and are beings of pure chaos but when face to frog-like-face fighting the creatures seems… strange. Luckily, the Slaadi start to really beat down those fears both physically and spiritually. But, are our adventurers hard enough to finish the fight?

Story

Long Story

Having just gotten themselves into another sticky predicament, Aludra and Jaela find themselves facing 8 10 gross Slaadi, with Thom and Harper watching on in horror. They join the inevitable fray. There is a mighty battle, a strange battle. One of the Slaadi eats a sandwich, one stands on his head. A third turns on his friends and seems to join the gang. Thom begins intensely making out with another. Aludra uses her Moonbeam power again, and gets clawed really hard, and it kind of stings weirdly. Harper grants everyone Haste. And Jaela does massive amounts of damage and save Aludra from nearly dying. They are careful to do non-lethal damage, and once they've knocked unconscious enough of them, things begin to wind down...

Short

They fight the Slaadi!
