List of episodes

"Tavern Heist" is the sixty-ninth episode of season two of Hello from the Magic Tavern. It was originally released on July 22, 2018.


We’re pulling the magical heist of the century.


Arnie starts the episode whispering, since they are about to break into the Vermilion Minotaur. They try to guess the password, but the door knocker starts to talk to them. After trying to get the guys to interview him, the door knocker eventually lets them in after they guess the password (which is 12345). Usidore melts the door knocker.

They get into the tavern and start searching for magic items. They spend a lot of time messing around with the different things they find, including the Eyes Of Sliddindors.

Chunt talks about how his relationship with Twosidore is moving really fast, and Chunt doesn’t know if he wants to consummate their relationship and shape-shift. Chunt questions if he wants a kid. After Chunt and Arnie finish their heart to heart conversation, Chunt calls Usidore over to have a talk with him. Usidore laments over how he misses Jyn’Leeviyah.

The discussion turns to the Void and how Usidore may have to sacrifice himself to stop it. They recall Spintax the Green's advice to fill the void with new acts of creation, and urge listeners to #philthevoid.

The guys reminisce about their very table, and how they miss the old days in the tavern. Usidore mentions how the Dark Lord activity increased around the same time Arnie appeared in Foon.

Usidore finds the portal in the basement that the dark lord used to get into Hogsface. The guys all go down to the basement to investigate the portal. Arnie admits that he is scared, and Chunt and Usidore give support and try to comfort him.

Usidore opens the portal and they all hold hands as they walk into the portal. The only sound left in the tavern is the sound of Chest talking to himself in his sleep.

Space bunker

The Mysterious Man closes out the episode, saying that he needs to go back to the space bunker and fix things.
