"Do NOT Listen" is the hundred-and-first episode of season two of Hello from the Magic Tavern. It was originally released on March 31, 2019.

Description

Baron Ragoon, Dripfang, Claudia the witch and Blemish do a victory lap before destroying Earth with this podcast.

Summary

The intro is the Mysterious Man, who has hacked into the Space Bunker controls calling from Space Prison. He acknowledges that he could block the transmission and save Earth, but it would cause more problems for himself than he’s willing to deal with.

Arnie, Chunt, and Usidore are imprisoned in the Vermilion Minotaur. Baron Ragoon is forcing them to broadcast so that he can use the podcast to transmit a signal from The Penelope to destroy Earth. To join him in gloating, he has invited Dripfang, the carfoon Blemish, and Claudia the witch. Claudia is not herself working for the Dark Lord, but as neutral figure sees no problem in joining the winning side for a celebration.

The villains taunt their prisoners, discuss their plans after the destruction of Earth, and explain how they came to serve the dark lord. Arnie, Chunt, and Usidore attempt to turn the villains against one another and plead for mercy towards Earth, both to no avail.

Usidore coughs and complains of hunger throughout and the villains eventually offer him something to eat. When he says he’s craving not food, but the paint that carfoon Blemish has been eating, the villains realize they’ve been tricked.

The carfoons of Arnie, Chunt, and Usidore explain that the real Arnie, Chunt, and Usidore spent the weeks leading up to Big Mittens Games creating carfoons of every citizen of Hogsface, and during a break in the transmission swapped places, allowing the carfoons of themselves to be taken prisoner. The whole town has been snuck out through the portal in the Vermilion Minotaur basement through to Castle Nowhere, including the real Claudia; the one present is herself a carfoon.

 And now the culmination of their plan: they’ll destroy the town and the Penelope, ending the threat to Earth. Dripfang attempts to flee, and the Baron pleads for mercy, saying Arnie’s “nobody dies” ethos require him to spare them. But the carfoon explains he’s not Arnie: he’s Carnival Wilson. Carfoon Usidore speaks aloud one of Usidore’s secret names, destroying all of Hogsface and the Penelope.

The real Arnie, Chunt, and Usidore emerge from Castle Nowhere back into Foon just in time to see the destruction of Hogsface at a distance. Their quest to defeat the Dark Lord continues, but it will do so from the road, as they travel Foon seeking allies and secrets. Their first challenge: answering a riddle from Clovis the bridge troll, so that they can cross the Ashit Bridge.
