List of episodes

"Freshgrave Twins" is the thirty-ninth episode of season three of Hello from the Magic Tavern. It was originally released on May 4, 2020.


The evil wizard twins Snaken and Schnenessa Freshgrave reach out to Arnie, Chunt and Usidore for some help now that they've graduated.


The Mysterious Man infiltrates the improv group as Derek, ready to sabotage them from the inside.

Most of the group are still in their pocket areas: Arnie is still in the school house, being yelled at by Gramblor, the old man of one of the sheep-bats, Usidore is still at the haunted hot springs with Weak Man, and Chunt, now a squid, is at the beach, but still can't leave the area. While they find that can't reach each other physically, they discuss if they should change the length of the episodes or the release times.

Although the trio can't be with each other, they can mix rune calls and still invite guest. They decide to includeSchnenessa and Snaken Freshgrave, who were in the waiting rune. The twins have graduated from The Jizzlenob Preparatory School For Young Wizards, tried light magic during their gap year, and a currently working "the net", calling up acquittances for jobs. Usidore offers them a job to defeat The Dark Lord, Chunt tries to hire with XP, and Arnie suggest they do a spin-off podcast.

The twins reveal their insecurities about growing up and that they are at their parents' house during The Shattering. Their parents interrupt the call and invite their children to come down for dinner. They all leave one by one until Arnie is left with Gramblor on the Rune call.
