"Well, it started out as a journey and then it just kinda became this whole different 'quest'. Journey... Quest... JourneyQuest." (beat) "Ugh, that's terrible."
— Wren (naming her epic)
JourneyQuest: A group of adventurers is sent to claim the Sword of Fighting from the Temple of All Dooms so they can defeat The Wicked Kings. Along the way they manage to slay many orcs and pick up a few followers, even if the party isn't aware they have them. A live action Web Series available here: http://www.journey-quest.comThe main party includes:
Glorion manages to blend the lust for battle and skills of this with the tactical mind of Lord Error-Prone.
The Sword of Fighting as well.
Brick Joke: Yes, Perf did keep the stone he used to defeat the orc shaman. No, it didn't help him at all against the bounty huntress.
Came Back Wrong: Carrow claims to have his memories and personality intact, but whereas in life he showed compassion and concern for the orcs, after his return from the dead he seems to have no qualms about biting them to death and eating them afterwards... He is slowly realizing this as the second season goes on. His holy symbol burns him, and spells against evil target him too.
Cassandra Truth: Perf tells the truth when asked about Glorion by the orcs, but due to Glorion being Glorion the answer makes so little sense they think he's mocking them.
Knights and Knaves: One of the Temple of All Doom's puzzles, with gargoyles. Glorion solves it largely by accident, when he tries to kill one gargoyle by throwing it down the safe path, then notices that it didn't die and decides to follow it in.
Language Barrier: Between orcs and humans. Can be circumvented by tongue potions, but when they're out of it, hilarity (or awkwardness) ensues.
L Is for Dyslexia: The explanation for Perf's miscast magic and ability to retrocast: he's dyslexic.
Magic Misfire: Perf's mode of operation when casting from the book. This turns out to be a very useful talent called Retrocasting, since his failures produce the opposite effect intended. He can invert spells with some effort.
Temple of Doom: The Temple of All Dooms in fact. Technically not quite accurate, but the Temple of Some Dooms didn't have quite the same punch. The orcs refer to it as the Temple of Select Dooms.
Title Drop: Each episode is named after a line delivered by one of the characters in that episode. Wren also drops the main title at the very end of Season 1 when she's trying to think of a good title for her epic. Then she immediately rejects it.
The Wicked Kings send the party to destroy the sword, then send several assasins after the party in case one of them turns out to be The Chosen One.
Karn assumes that a seer giving him a totally accurate account of the situation and explaining how he can take advantage is doing this to get him out of the country. At least, that's what he wants his backstabbing court to think....
Tropaholics Anonymous: Season 2 episode 2 has a gathering of villains trying to reject evil this way. Naturally, Glorion stumbles on them and kills them all.
Turn Undead: As a cleric, Carrow has this power. [[Spoiler:Unfortunately, since he became undead, he can affect himself too.]]
He once turns a large group of zombies while wandering though a city of other undead. [[Spoiler:But then he looks at his holy symbol and accidentally turns himself, running off farther into the horde of undead who don't react in any way.]]
Bonus points for trying to turn Death herself... [[Spoiler:and accidentally blowing his own arm off in the process.]]
