List of episodes

"Together" is the fifty-seventh episode of season three of Hello from the Magic Tavern. It was originally released on September 7, 2020.

Description

Arnie, Chunt and Usidore spend some time getting used to being back together and practice talking to each other.

Summary

Prompted by Usidore's lack of participation in the previous episdoe, Arnie starts off the intro with his understudy hosts, Talbot the badger for Chunt, and Can the Wizard for Usidore. Upset and annoy by Can's appearance, Chunt appears for real and pushes Can into the sword still in Arnie's chest, Obsidian Doom, known to be a wizard killing blade. As Can dies "forever", Arnie explains his search for understudies. Usidore comes in and is in disbelief that the podcast turned into "a badger show" and that they didn't try to wake him up while he was in the wizard state. This reminded the group to check on DQ as he's still "imprisoned".

Since this is the first time they've been together since they were in the dungeons, the group catches each other up with what they have done all week. Usidore has been making jellies and jams in the second kitchen. Chunt has been exploring more rooms in the castle. Arnie also explored 2-3 rooms and found Skullmaster's diary. While he was reading it, he found much of Skullmaster's destructive tendencies as well as underlaying sad statements of his unhappy life.

Since they have been separated from each other and sidetracked from their quest due to the Shattering, the three try to remember what their current mission was. Although the Shattering is still happening outside, they have to press on. They recap some highlight plot points and Chunt highlights his sexual time line. Arnie, Chunt, and Usidore are still on their mission to defeat The Dark Lord and evil. They had found the Book of Sight, and some of the missing pages. One of the missing pages mention how the Dark Lord can avoid death by collecting three artifacts, their current mission. They discuss where the last artifact could be when they remember that it was in a Terrible Castle, which they learned earlier that is was on Strong Guy Island. It is possible that the artifact is Castle Skullmaster, though there are also at least seven other castles on the island.

Arnie suggest that they raid the castle, since there is a possibility that it is there at the castle and Skullmaster is evil. Chunt ecstatically wants to check the Butt Room, where every time he enters someone touches his butt. Usidore and Arnie check a room at random, but it ended up also being the Butt Room. When Usidore lights up the room, it ended up being Chunt sitting down at a chair. Arnie says they've been in isolation too long as it seems they don't seem to be able to act normal or act normal around each other. Usidore admits that the reason that it may have been so hard to shake him out of the wizard state was he wanted to be there on his own and have some time for himself.

In order to move forward, Usidore encourages the group to take the necessary steps, so he brought them devil masks to be used to defeat Skullmaster. When they were hesitant to become demons, Usidore gives them masks to turn them into Slenderbears. However, the masks dematerializes when they attempt to use them and Usidore admits that they were temporary. In a final attempt, Usidore gives everyone, except for Mundle, a bandana as a mask.

With all the craziness, Arnie just suggest that they reacclimate to each other and reintroduce themselves. In a roleplay, Arnie walks into a restaurant and sits down at a table. Delilah (Chunt) and her husband, Stevie (Usidore), sit with him and try to make small talk. Arnie assumed that they would be themselves and reintroduce themselves as if they first met. Usidore tells him it is okay to be other people and gives Arnie a Commodore Johnson mask to get into the role. The small talk doesn't get much better and they end up constantly switching masks with each other.

Chunt gets them back on task by asking about the artifacts again. They abandon the skit and continue to riffle the place again, starting with the rug in the room. When they attempt to throw it out the window, they find a map, but it gives them mixed signals on their location. Usidore flips through tomes while Chunt and Arnie ask each other how they been, summarizing their own experiences of almost deaths and Shattering in Season 3. Usidore, however have been thriving in the Shattering. When Usidore returns, he states that the artifact is unmistakable. They end the episode by giving their own variants of arty/Artie facts and kicking a rug, not learning any lessons.

  • Chunt and Usidore does a quick "Gettin' Nuts" Variation, called "Kicking a Rug in the Nuts".
