Recap: On the Origin of PCs


  • A Tankard of Moose Urine: This is Durkon's reaction to a taste of 'the finiest beer in human lands'. The implications do not sit will with him.
  • Delicious Distraction: Haley is able to sneak past an Angry Guard Dog this way. It helps that the steaks she brings are laced with sleeping potion.
  • Epic Fail: While in an Iron Chef like magic contest, Vaarsuvius miswrites a spell. The result destroys the entire wizard's guild and a piece of the jail next door.
  • Oh, No... Not Again!: Elan's reaction when the knight he accompanies decides to ditch him.
  • Never Bring a Knife to a Fist Fight: We first see Belker in jail, on a charge of murdering several people in a bar brawl. He tries to defend himself saying that they shouldn't have brought fists to a knife fight, but the guard retorts that it wasn't a knife fight until Belkar started stabbing people.
  • Terrible Interviewees Montage: Inverted; Roy will take anyone, but almost no one is interested in his terms.
  • You All Meet in an Inn: Naturally. In fact, Elan tells Roy flat out this is how adventurers meet for some reason.
