List of episodes

"Dragon" is the forty-fourth episode of season three of Hello from the Magic Tavern. It was originally released on June 8, 2020.


The hosts accidentally encounter a terrifying and persnickety dragon.


In an unusual fashion, the Mysterious Man discards his normal sarcastic banter and thanks the listeners for listening to the show while the world is under a Pandemic,

Arnie starts the show in the usual way, still in the shattering, talking to his co-hosts via Rune, etc. Chunt flaunts his new form, a sea wolf, and pitches his idea for a new establishment under the sea, Howl at the Foon, a Carrot Oke place. The two and Usidore talk about their go-to Carrot Oke songs.

Arnie was lucky enough to contact the third most famous Adventurer, Onsworth. However, while trying to establish a connection, they find that Onsworth has been dismembered, leaving behind his feet and lower half. Instead, a dragon tries to find the active Rune to talk through. Initially uninterested, he introduces himself as Durp, also known as Durp the Magnificent, and maybe one of the last dragons on Foon. Durp is reluctant to talk, especially with his traumatic past, but the group try their best to get him to talk about the glory days to lead Durp into talking about his hurt past.

In his younger years, Durp was a stylish, artsy, sporty young dragon. Though he had pride in himself, he was never able to connect with women, and secludes himself with his model carts and dioramas. Arnie calls Durp out as being a nerd. Usidore and Arnie encourage Durp, advising him to leave his cave and be part of the natural world. However, to Durp, the world is a scary place, and he does not want to leave.

In the end, it seems that it maybe for the best for Durp to remain where his is, lest Usidore is able to convince Durp to leave the cave so he can have the model carts for himself. Durp allows Chunt and Arnie to visit him again in the future to check up on him, but not Usidore.

  • Usidore may have a feet fetish.
  • The group continues the ongoing joke that Usidore may be related to Kraptor.
  • One of Durp's chirping Rocks, named Computer, reads out the overview description of Hello from the Magic Tavern, which includes stating that their world is fiction and that it's a comedy podcast. This is generated by a smart device, but it does play comically in the scene.
  • Arnie mentions on "Tormaline Dragon Teen" that the dragon has since been turned into a Bean Dad.
