    Oh man! I want the Hogba to be a Playable Character in a Videogame!

    Nobody listens to Torq anymore.

      They listened, they just didn’t agree.

    POTENTIAL INDIRECT SPOILERS HEREIN

    Wouldn’t Ket also be ineligible to stay with the Hogba? No doubt Asmodeus has other plans for him after the Feywild has been restored. That would leave only the original trio.

      not really, the only deal ket has with Asmodeus is that he has to keep competing in the tournament, this means that he will be plucked from camp, note ket also gets to choose these times. so no problems there i think.

    I wanted Trelle to not take the deal with her “scary friend”, since it was a terrible idea, but also wanted her to take it….just to see what thing Rodrigo had come up with for her scary friend to take in return.
    The Hogba’s deal sounds a lot like a “never heard from again” type deal.

    Take Torq please. He’s been an entertaining character but he’s been treated as almost an NPC for much of this campaign. Either that or, in the next arc, center the story around Torq and some of his other aunts and uncles (since Tilly’s gone).

    I can’t help but think the Hogba ties into someone’s Epic Destiny. But whose!?

      That’s a great idea, actually, and would be a very engaging way to integrate an Epic Destiny into the storyline. The only problem is that, based on what they’ve said on the show and a few comments on here and tumblr, I don’t get the impression that anyone has really engaged with selecting an epic destiny at this point. I guess this could be a good way for Rodrigo to try to get them to start thinking about that, though.

      As soon as I heard the Hogba’s terms, I went a slightly different direction. I think it’s unlikely that one character is going to disappear by himself, so I feel like there’s a decent chance the next season could follow their adventures with the Hogba on his campaign. If someone’s going to never be heard from again, why not all of them never being heard from again? Trelle chose to help the Hogba once and it wasn’t an issue. I think it’s only an issue if she makes a deal with him. Guess we’ll have to see!

    Great podcast. Now to remember not to say Hogba….

    God damnit.

    These last two episodes have been absolutely fantastic. The sense of tension over these decisions is palpable. The torment that Rodrigo puts his players through is so delicious.

    I love how invested everyone is at this point. The decisions being made here will echo through the rest of the campaign…if there is one!

    Thanks for all the great content!

    One other thing to note: Rodrigo has been dropping a lot of breadcrumbs for future adventures that could be considered or adjusted to be a “solo”. Trelle in the Southern Continent, Randus with his family, Torq reclaiming Diamond Throne, etc.

    It is very possible that this could be a similar avenue. Off-season interludes perhaps? (It has been a year since…. )
