List of episodes

"Usidore's Hat" is the eightieth episode of season three of Hello from the Magic Tavern. It was originally released on March 1, 2021.

Description

It's finally time to visit the tiny tavern hidden inside Usidore's hat.

Summary

Traversing the mountainside on horseback, Arnie fails to recall a time where he had ridden a horse in Foon, despite him being there for just short of 6 years and previously buying a used horse. Usidore, however, remembers his horse companions fondly, including Chode and Grimhoof. Chunt cannot recall his horse, but he can turn into one and offer a ride to Arnie, which he refuses.

Dark clouds appear before them. Usidore uses this opportunity to invite Arnie and Chunt into his hat, since he did not want to waste a guest last week. He shrinks the two down where they meet an Avatar Usidore to guide them through the tavern. After entering using the password that Avatar Usidore gave them, they enter the tavern, which is very reminiscent to the Vermilion Minotaur back in Hogsface before it was destroyed. Each of the patrons are all different versions of Usidore with distinctive personalities and characteristics. Arnie and Chunt head up to the bar to Barkeep Usidore for drinks, only for him to tell the pair that they get to drink at the tavern for free. Chunt also gets the chance to flirt with Sexy Usidore, who is very forward with him. Avatar Usidore guides Arnie and Chunt to a replica of that very table from the Vermilion Minotaur with the only exception that it has nipples. From there, they order food and meet various other Usidores. The two are also encouraged by almost every Usidore they meet to not talk to Depressed Usidore.

Arnie and Chunt distract Avatar Usidore in hopes to talk to and cheer up Depressed Usidore. He lacks the traditional manic energy that all the other Usidores have and lingers on his constant failures in regards to his quest, the protection of Arnie during The Lurking Phantom Episode, the journey to make Arnie unkillable, and the return of both Eggy Baby and Twosidore to Chunt. Arnie reminds him that its is okay for Usidore to fail and they are still friends, but since Usidore has the power to do something, it is even that more insulting. Much of Drepressed Usidore's anxiety, as well as the looming tension felt throughout the tavern stems from the upcoming Wizards' Council as there's a good chance it would be a shitshow.

The main Usidore interrupts, hoping that when Arnie and Chunt are done, they can rejoin him as he is lonely without them. Even he says not to talk to Depressed Usidore. But as Arnie and Chunt get Depressed Usidore to open up more, Depressed Usidore has already resigned his abilities and tells the group to join the Dark Lord's forces since he already has obtained so much power. The two realized that this Usidore is the Usidore without hope and a fucking coward. Avatar Usidore shoos away Depressed Usidore and the group discuss how to deal with the things that upsets them; a wholesome conversation to a rather comical episode. They close out the episode doing a role call to the rest of the Usidores and an email.

Emails

A Canadian Fan, Kay, is a geologist that started listening to the podcast around August 2020. Although they do not have a question, they offer some knowledge on how to obtain more obsidian, since Foon has a scarce amount. Since obsidian is essentially volcanic glass, they could make more by having a volcano erupt near an ocean and mine the new supply. Avatar Usidore says this information could be useful, however, many of the volcanos in Foon are controlled by the Dark Lord. If they could traverse the dimension, Kay offered their own supply. Arnie suggest an episode on top of a volcano, which Usidore sarcastically thanks Kay for.
