List of episodes

"Tom the Nominee" is the fifty-third episode of season one of Hello from the Magic Tavern. It was originally released on March 14, 2016. This episode features Steve Waltien as Tomblain Belaroth.


"Last we heard from Tomblain Belaroth, his role as Danlet earned him a nomination for a Tosser Award. Now he’s back to tell us all about his experience on the Red Carpet."


Since Chunt doesn’t have long to live, he tries out a new directive: “Chunt please… clap!”

Chunt is trying to remain optimistic despite the curse. Usidore is searching for a cure for Chunt. Arnie says that on Earth when someone is cursed, usually doing the opposite of whatever you did to be cursed will remove it. So… Chunt is supposed to not touch coins? Idiot…

Chunt gets some advice from Alison the Boohag — she doesn’t have skin, and she sits on your chest when you sleep. To prolong his life, Chunt says she told him to drink the tea of a rusted root, and say “Send me on my way” over and over again. You can tell it is rusted because no monkey will swing on it if a tree has iron deposits (Simeon Away!).

Tom the Traveler is back! Unfortunately, he did not win the Tosser award.

Tom went to the Tossers, but it was dominated by Wights. The red carpet is the hardest part, because a lot of people are jealous of other nominees and all weapons are allowed and the carpet is soaked in blood by the end of the night.

There were many suicides after the awards.

Tom did have a plan had he won. He would have revealed himself to his mother, who hosts the awards. He would have thanked Rhiannon and gave the Rhiannon the award and kissed her. But he didn’t and now he’s depressed and seeking out morglorb. Usidore tries to get him to put some soup in his butt instead of partaking the morglorb.

Usidore and Jyn have been dating through Astral Projection. You can’t just go straight to astral projection! You have to lead up to it… bring it up as a joke first… Okay, we get it.

Usidore recruits Tom to be a spy in Shrike. The guys try to get Tom to take on different characters. Wow… the range of voices he can do is astounding…

Tom give Usidore a love letter to deliver to Rhiannon. The letter is a “sletter” including some pictures and private messages.

Tom does a scene from Romeon and Julieoff. It turns out to be a scene from Life of Pi.


From Ary Anderson: Don’t you feel it is suspicious that Arnie had his podcasting equipment with him when he came to Foon.
Answer: Arnie just had it in his car from his failed podcasts of past.

From Diamond Dan and Mouse: A couple of swingers started chanting Usidore’s name and converts their third partner to listen to the podcast.
Answer: Tom declares they have TSI – Temporary Sexual insanity.

From Taylor K: A listener postulates the shape of Foon.
Answer: It’s land shaped, but besides for Foon there are other nations: Hawai, Grundelflin, Sorfain, Seortle.
