List of episodes

"Knight" is the thirtieth episode of season three of Hello from the Magic Tavern. It was originally released on February 23, 2020.

Description

We learn about chivalry and faces from a knight.

Summary

Arnie, Chunt, and Usidore are in the Dark Dank Caverns, about to retrieve the first of the three artifacts the Dark Lord is seeking to make himself indestructible. Upon a pedestal upon a bier surrounded by sconces, they discover a note from the DL taunting them they are too late.

As they leave the Dark Dank Cavern, through the Little Desert, they encounter Sir Gluthar the Faceblind, a knight unable to recognize faces. He’s on a quest to restore the honor of his lady Maribel/Lisibel/Laribel, who suffered a breach of conduct with an another knight.

They discuss the rules of chivalry, horse protocol, the siring of goats, and his experiences as a faceblind knight. Upon realizing that many of the quests he has agreed to may have been pranks meant to take advantage of his face blind-ness, he grows desponded, but Arnie gives him a new quest: to kill Dripfang LeDesparé.

Usidore offers to speak his secret name that will cure Gluthar’s faceblindness, but at the cost of being blind to everything else. Gluthar declines, and instead they discuss strategies to make sure his next victim is Dripfang, not an innocent bystander.

Notes

  • In this episode Gluthar states that he cannot knight anyone else, but in Season 3, Ep 34 – Mouse Knight Momo states Gluthar has trained and knighted her. Perhaps he confused himself with the king.
