"Can our heroes survive a most treacherous job interview? I see myself in five years in… The Adventure Zone!"
The Announcer

Now that they can finally understand like, anything that anybody important is saying, our heroes seek employment in the Bureau of Balance. Merle brags about how smart he is. Taako accidentally encounters some life-changing intel. Magnus does horrible, horrible things to an automaton.



  • An Arm and a Leg: Magnus rips a robot’s arms off, much to the horror of the other robot.
  • Exposition: Another exposition heavy episode.
  • Fantastic Racism: Played for Laughs. Ogres aren't people and they can't listen to podcasts because ‘’they're too dumb’’.
  • Mundane Utility: Magic dirt-proofs the floor of the Director's office.
  • Parasol of Pain: Taako finally gets to use the Umbra Staff.
  • Running Gag: Invoked. Travis asked Griffin to “say the part where you say we solved your puzzle”.
    • This also begins the gag of Magnus ripping arms off of robots.
  • Shout-Out: Animal House
    • X-Men
  • Status Ailment: One of Merle's potions does this.
  • Status Buff: Another of Merle's potions does this.
  • Unstoppable Rage: One of Merle's potions does this to the ogres surrounding the one he hits.
