Starting point is 00:02:06 This one, about four teens from our world sent from our world to another world. And now they got befriended in Eldritch Horror. And now they got said everything right. All by their lonesome. The show stayed in America. The whole show takes place in the Netherlands. Yep. europe it's a european show netherlands is a pretty good name for a fantasy also a good name for you know what down there that's what that's what matt calls his gooch all right my name is freddie wong i play taylor swift
Starting point is 00:02:39 freddie uh we can pull out here your cat going sicko mode on some fucking tissue paper is that all right that's fine it's fine's fine. Is it getting picked up? It's fine. Some people know this episode's raw. She's getting picked up for her own sitcom because she's funnier than all of us. You know when those people on TikTok and stuff do magic tricks or punch blocks really fast? They have somebody with a clock behind them so the show's like, oh, we're not manipulating time? Uh-huh.
Starting point is 00:03:00 That's what this cat's doing for us. There's no editing in this podcast. You can hear the cat nonstop. That's my cat. We're just this funny constantly. That's my cat cat's doing for us. There's no editing in this podcast. You can hear the cat nonstop. That's my cat. We're just this funny constantly. That's my cat, Moku. Taylor Swift, though, is a ranger teen. Not a ranger anymore.
Starting point is 00:03:12 A druid. No, no. What was he? He's a druid now? He's whatever he wants to be. He's a rogue. A rogue, which means he could be a druid. You of all people should know your class.
Starting point is 00:03:21 You changed it. I know. He's a rogue. You sound so disappointed in that. I was expecting, well, you know what it is. There's just been no opportunities to sneak attack lately. And that's like kind of the rogues whole thing. No, there never are.
Starting point is 00:03:33 I know. If only you were in like a cage fight where there's multiple people fighting each other at any moment, you could have like hidden and tried to sneak attack. No, I'm just going gonna make his voice real loud uh this was taylor fact since we're in the land of oakvale taylor has once constructed for himself a bow and arrow and he was like i'm gonna i need a u tree y e w which is like what all the english bows were made out of so it grows in america the u treetree, but nowhere near San Dimas, California where they all are. So instead he substituted with the common
Starting point is 00:04:10 what's a California tree? I'm not doing your heavy lifting for you. Oak. A redwood. Yeah, he cut down a... He cut down a redwood tree? He peeled off the bark of a redwood tree and took a bow sized like chunk of wood
Starting point is 00:04:29 anything else going on he's got a little dice he's got a little d10 someone throw a dice into the other room i mean i think also you just get rid of all his tissue paper no she loves it though, Doc. Check this out. Throw this dice. I don't play Call of Duty. I don't do it when we're recording a podcast. You'd be not a cat either, Will. Yeah, so you just take away the toy.
Starting point is 00:04:53 Why don't we just put the cat stuff in another room? Yeah. Okay. Yeah, put the cat stuff in Jimmy's room. She didn't follow the dice, Freddie. What do I do? Look, where's the dice? I threw it in the room.
Starting point is 00:05:06 You've got to get her attention before you throw it. You can't just throw things and expect the cat to know exactly where it is. Are you crazy? I cannot stress how much this is your problem and not our problem. Taylor defaced a redwood tree, which is a felony, but he made a bow out of it, which snapped immediately
Starting point is 00:05:22 because the redwood tree does not give you good wood for a bow. He even tied a high gauge fishing line. So Taylor has never gone back to the bow. He's never gone back to the bow because he's had one bad experience. Because of that one bad experience, he hurt his thumb real bad.
Starting point is 00:05:38 Sounds like Taylor's a quitter. Yeah, he is. Taylor to cut down the largest tree in the world. He didn't cut down the largest tree in the world he didn't cut down the whole tree he's carved it out general sherman's again yeah he you know this you know this no no i like this like this you know how they talk about how there's like there's one redwood that's the oldest tree in america and everyone's like we have to keep its location secret because if anyone knows there's a danger of people coming and seeing it we have to let this majestic
Starting point is 00:06:04 beautiful tree just live out its life on its own somewhere in the fourth taylor found it he was using google maps he's like that tree looks huge and then he was like i'm gonna go over there and he got it and then he fucked it up by building a bow that didn't work i feel like taylor swift eco-terrorist just like the real one hey everybody my name is matthew arnold i play uh lincoln boss kicks schooled at home soccer kid who's now a productive paladin and spouse to his uh best friends from uh elementary wait middle school high school you're in high school high school that's where we're at that's right sorry lincoln doesn't really know school he's been homeschooled
Starting point is 00:06:43 speaking of which good save there was a moment this is probably the this is the worst thing lincoln's ever done oh boy so there was a moment where marco and grant were like you know we should get him a little bit more socialized he should start talking to people but we're a little scared of them going to another school so they decided that they would open up their homeschool to be part of like a homeschool group where you can like get other kids so they didn't have a discord for homeschool but yeah it was very common sometimes homeschools will be like multiple kids like multiple people will go to one person's home minecraft server it's a real life minecraft like a real life sure that helps you guys it's a real life minecraft server so the three other kids came to the school to the house and the very first
Starting point is 00:07:22 day marco laughed at like one of the kids jokes oh that's fucking funny that's pretty funny that my dad thinks that joke's pretty funny and another time he saw his dad help out the kid like open up his his pudding pack he's like well dad's supposed to open my pudding pack not another kid's putting back so let's just say lincoln started adding well lincoln started adding laxatives to all the kids drinks and then marco realized they started cheating and then Marco realized it was Lincoln and he got in trouble and he said, no, it's just better off
Starting point is 00:07:47 if we just leave Lincoln, like, Lincoln can't be with other kids. This is dark. Yeah, yeah. Well, you know. I thought it was gonna be like you start telling jokes
Starting point is 00:07:53 and pretending he couldn't open his pudding. No way. Just like the cat. Lincoln is literally like the bad seed. Yes. Like, it was like,
Starting point is 00:08:00 I liked it better when I was the only child. Don't bring other children into this house. The talented Mr. M. Kiggs over here. That's it. That's Louise. So don't fuck with him.
Starting point is 00:08:07 Hi, everyone. I'm. Do you want me to move it? Yes. Yes. All right. If Freddie had kids, they'd be the ones that are, like, running around the restaurant and spraying water at people.
Starting point is 00:08:18 And I'd be the one body blocking and being like, maybe we don't run in a restaurant. Body blocking is definitely the phrase that makes that a banger to me. I know. It's like, yeah. Body blocking. Because you don't know quite what she means. Did she block the dog or the kid?
Starting point is 00:08:35 It's a little too close to body checked. Yeah. It's like, I stepped in front of the dog. It's a funny phrase that opens it up to all sorts of misinterpretation. It's terrific. Yeah. Where'd your toys go?
Starting point is 00:08:46 My name is Will Campos. I play Nor- Did we get to me? Were we on me? Yeah, then you got frustrated at Tomoku because you hate cats. Leave that part in. My name is Will Campos. I play Normal Oak.
Starting point is 00:08:55 He's a perky, peppy, chipper, cheery school spirit mascot kid learning things about his own past right now. Yeah. So I thought I'd do a little fact about Normal related to the events of last week's episode. Normal has no recollection of his small arms training that he apparently
Starting point is 00:09:10 received at daddy's age too. I thought you were going to say of his small arms. His small arms. Smaller arms than you would expect.
Starting point is 00:09:16 So he does not remember ever getting trained in the use of the deadly art of the gun. However, his whole life he's had fantastic trigger
Starting point is 00:09:24 discipline and he never knew where it came from he'd be like you know hot glue gunning like a halloween costume and that finger's always like no not until you're ready to glue something do you pull the trigger you've never done like a spray can like spray paint and actually sprayed it back on his finger you know he's never even like he's used a power drill before and he didn't even go what are the what are the four what are the four rules of hot glue gun safety? Well, there's the always check to make sure there's glue in the chamber.
Starting point is 00:09:47 Yeah. No, no, no, no. You always assume there's a glue stick Always assume there's glue in the chamber. You never point the glue at anything other than
Starting point is 00:09:54 the felt you want to glue with it. If the tip is hot, don't touch it. Nice, okay. And if the government comes for your glue, protest, protest, protest. Maybe you Second Amendment people can glue something together
Starting point is 00:10:08 they'll take this glue gun from my hot sticky hands the fourth rule is that only a good guy with a glue gun can stop a bad guy with a glue gun if we outlaw glue guns on the alcohols we'll have glue guns etc etc what's with all these glue guns in schools I'll glue myself in et cetera, et cetera, et cetera. What's with all these glue guns in schools?
Starting point is 00:10:28 I'll glue myself in a second if this goes on. My name is Beth May. Hi, Beth. Hi, Beth. Yeah, thanks. Happy to be here. Hero of the podcast. That's, yeah, sure.
Starting point is 00:10:38 Yeah, okay. And then I play Scary Marlow, a goth punk seeker of darkness who doesn't want to care anymore fun fact about scary this week so hermy's funeral was actually the first funeral that scary has ever been to if you don't count the ai reunion arcade fire concert she went to a few years ago using robot sims of the old band whose album funeral was released in 2004 holy shit wait really quick i would give so much beth for you to narrate a sci-fi story because the fucking lore that you just spun up there was so intense what was it it was It was an AI what? Robots? Fucking robots, man! Yeah, AI robots. If your tiny mind
Starting point is 00:11:30 can process something. Also, like of all bands, you have to do like robots for you. Like, wait, how many? Arcade Fire? God, there's like 20 people in Arcade Fire. How many robots do we have to make? Ironically, they all died in 2036 when they put a concert at Dave and Buster's and it burned down. Oh, man.
Starting point is 00:11:44 So, what? Arcade Fire. Arcade Fire, yeah. That's pretty good. Yeah. That's funny. It's the good kind of jokes where you just look at it and just go, yes, yes, what a good joke. Yes.
Starting point is 00:11:53 Ah, I love the craft. Some jokes go for your brain rather than your funny bone. Yeah, I'll write a sci-fi novella. Yeah. And I'll be like, and then their processors couldn't handle the amount of processing that they had to do. Whoa, slow down, Gibson. Do you ever wonder what it's really like to be human? My name is Anthony Burch.
Starting point is 00:12:14 I'm your dad. Hi. Interlinked. Your dad, interlinked. What is that? It's from Blade Runner 2024. Wow. This is just a scene where they have to test it.
Starting point is 00:12:24 Oh, not 2024. Kill me. 2049? Yeah. To Blade Runner 2024. Wow. This is just a scene where they have to like test it. Oh, not 2024. Kill me. Yeah, Blade Runner 2024. Well. Except next year. They should have done that. Next year. Just a bunch of replicants that don't wear masks.
Starting point is 00:12:35 Yeah. My new IPO, Weyland-Yutani. So what the fuck am I talking about? I don't know. My dad fact. My dad fact. So you know that shit was called like Weyland-Yutani. Like when it wasy like when it was yeah yeah yeah whaley you time before they turned into like the cyberpunk anyway i'm sorry anthony go ahead it doesn't matter
Starting point is 00:12:51 if you live in canada i was on a show that you can watch called the take back what so yeah i i told you about this it was a charity thing there was a kid it was sick kid fucking sick kid and they were like hey you sick too they were like hey he hasn't had a birthday party uh his whole life because he's so sick so he loves dungeons and daddies so why don't we take him to like a theme park and then have the guy from dungeons and daddies write a little adventure for him and i was like you have to pay me to do that and then they did and i have to say this is one of the most incredible photos i've ever seen of anthony in a collared shirt and a wizard's robe. They gave me a wizard's robe.
Starting point is 00:13:30 And they appears to be somewhere in Canada. It's Canada's Wonderland. They're equivalent of Disneyland. Oh, wow. If you live in Canada, I think it's on CTV. I think you can watch it. I just think it's so brave to have a charity show called The Take Back. Because what does that mean?
Starting point is 00:13:44 Are they taking back what they give you or i'll read you the press release here hosted by etox tyrone edwards the new one hour special turns canceled events into extraordinary celebrations for two deserving heroes now here's my favorite part about this press release guest appearances include a bunch of names one two three four five six seven eight eight names and more anthony i think you're part of the and more and more it's actually pretty funny in the show because they're like and then there's a secret character who's somewhere in the park literally they had me come out of a best western but they pixelated my whole body so you can't tell that it's me as if anybody would know
Starting point is 00:14:19 who i am anyway yeah like would that possibly be wnba all-star cheyenne parker tsn anchor kayla gray the raptors official mascot was there he was wow not in my thing but at the other thing he was anyway that's the thing you can do check it out when we last left our heroes you had just finished the funeral for Hermie. You were in Oakvale. You went to see Henry Oak, old man Henry Oak, who still looks fuckable because he's an elf.
Starting point is 00:14:51 I found out, by the way, the name of that perk is Timeless Body, which... No way, dude. That's the name of your GQ cover, dude. That's an ass you can set your watch to? Yeah, man. Yeah.
Starting point is 00:15:02 Fuck yeah, dude. It works in all time zones. What does that mean? It works in all time zones, man. That's what it means. Oh, okay. Moonlight savings time. God.
Starting point is 00:15:10 Moon's a butt, so it's moonlight savings time. God. Henry's ass. Looks good. Anthony, why don't you go ahead? Yeah, go ahead. You also went to the flashback
Starting point is 00:15:18 that is the daddy magic flashback you've been looking for with all the Okoboes involved and the flashback took you to Daddy's HQ before something bad happened. We saw Normal accidentally open a door from which a flood of flesh exited and started attacking Daddy's HQ. And we ended just as Larkin Sparrow with Hero in tow rounded the corner and said, what did you do? What did you do? And shouted at Normal. So you all in present time are here, but you're invisible and you can affect the world if you want to,
Starting point is 00:15:46 but it's in the past, but you're all invisible and you see past Lark and Sparrow saying, what the fuck did you do to normal? Hey, Hero, what's up? Taylor goes for a tap. So Hero immediately goes, and hears somebody saying her name
Starting point is 00:15:58 and looks around and doesn't see you, but she's in a panic and she goes, that voice sounds really unattractive. Well, that goes for 99% of my interactions with Hiro, so. The klaxons are blaring. You just saw the flesh mound climb slurping itself into one of the air
Starting point is 00:16:14 ducts and it disappears. So Lark and Sparrow grab Hiro and Normal by their- Wait, we're incorporeal, right? You're not incorporeal, just invisible. Are we ghosts? Like, what are we? You're you, but invisible. Okay, so then Taylor's going to go after this flesh monster. Can we touch things? Yeah,
Starting point is 00:16:29 you can do stuff. You're in the past and you're invisible. Yeah. So I'm going to chase everyone. I'll keep tabs on the monster. Okay. So you're just going to jump in the air duct after it. Yeah.
Starting point is 00:16:37 Okay, cool. Why don't you roll? This feels like a ranger thing to do because you're tracking a creature. Shit. I'm not a ranger anymore. You're not a ranger anymore. Maybe I have a little sense
Starting point is 00:16:46 memory of it you know you could roll survival or nature I have a pretty good survival so I'll do 12 plus 5 17 17 okay so you track this thing pretty adequately it's got a really slimy trail you see as it splits up into five different parts of itself and you see this part split up five more times and then five more
Starting point is 00:17:02 times you see begin to multiply into many smaller versions of itself with horrible horrible proportions that make your mind spin just to think about them and that's not me getting out of describing them because i'll describe them later okay taylor backs out of the vet i last track of it but it multiplied into 25 or more versions of itself maybe we can like shut off the heating or whatever and close all the vents yeah it's in the hvac so you hear screaming from the floor above you and Larkin... Oh, they're fucked. Past Larkin Sparrow run upstairs holding past
Starting point is 00:17:29 Hero and Normal in tow. Normal is just gonna follow them because more than wanting to stop anything Normal has shocked that he was ever at Daddy's HQ and wants to see what's happening. So suddenly... Link should follow Normal. Great. Scary will follow Link. Buddy system, Taylor, decides to go his own way and follow normal.
Starting point is 00:17:45 Okay, great. Suddenly, you find yourselves in familiar environs. You're on the office floor of Daddy's HQ, but it looks far cleaner and more maintained than when you last saw it. We need a word with May Hales. And the floor you're on is bustling with activity, clerks, and office workers hurriedly rushing about and grabbing weapons as if their lives depend on it, which they do.
Starting point is 00:18:03 So Sparrow approaches a staff member and he goes, how bad is it? And the voice says, they're in the ventilation. The staff member you now recognize as a younger May Hales. And even as she says it, you can hear the scuttling of many legs and many claws in the air conditioning vents overhead. Lark speaks into his wrist and he says, Dad, where are you? And you can't make out the exact response, but you hear Henry Oak's voice. Henry, Henry, Henry, Henry. Yeah, and you hear the words top floor somewhere
Starting point is 00:18:25 with a mechacophony. Bring snacks! So Lark and Sparrow pull out matching revolvers from their shoulder holsters. Bro, it's matching? Lark and Sparrow pull out matching revolvers from their shoulder holsters. Slow down, slow down, slow down.
Starting point is 00:18:37 Anthony, Anthony. Lark and Sparrow pull out matching revolvers from their shoulder holsters. No, no, no, you've played the game Devil May Cry. Yeah. They're not matching, you know what I'm saying? Yeah, one's ebony and one's ivory. Yeah, yeah, yeah. Yeah, no, no. You've played the game Devil May Cry. Yeah. They're not matching. You know what I'm saying? Yeah, one's ebony and one's ivory.
Starting point is 00:18:47 Yeah, yeah, yeah. Yeah, yeah, yeah. They're paired. They're paired. Yeah, yeah, yeah. Yeah, they work best together. Sick, okay. They start off at a dead sprint
Starting point is 00:18:52 toward the stairwell upstairs. In that moment, the walls explode in a flood of articulating limbs and smiling faces. You see creatures not unlike the doodled zombies you've met in the past
Starting point is 00:19:02 but somehow more feral and bestial. Naked humans with their limbs bent in incorrect angles as if they were more spider than person. Their heads twisted around 180 degrees so you can see their upside-down grimaces as they scuttle towards you on elongated, pulsing crab legs. Their flesh melts off their bones like cold icing off a hot cake. But no matter how much the pink ichor drips to the floor of Daddy's HQ, there always seems to be more of it. More flesh. More flesh. More flesh. Their bones hidden under a perpetual stream of melting skin. to the floor of Daddy's HQ, there always seems to be more of it. More flesh, more flesh, more flesh. Their bones hidden under a perpetual stream of melting skin.
Starting point is 00:19:28 They scream in unison, a high-pitched cackle that soon mixes with bellows of terror from the implories of Daddy's. So- Are we, like, safe here, even though we're invisible? I think so. That's a really good question.
Starting point is 00:19:39 This seems pretty heavy duty. Well, if we died in the past, we wouldn't- We would know about it. Yeah, we would know about it. Yeah. Unless, like, way- No, we can die in the past we wouldn't we would know about yeah we would know about yeah unless like no no we we can die in the past because your present selves can die here yeah our present selves can die in the past but our past selves will live to be our present selves
Starting point is 00:19:55 which will then die in the past link like slams his hand into the corner of a table just to see like if it like hurts yeah it hurts roll a d Roll a D4. I think we could die. Oh, I'm really strong. That hurt. But yeah. Okay. Yeah. I think we can die. Yeah.
Starting point is 00:20:10 So don't stick together, guys. Who's with us? We're with dude. You were dude, Larkin Sparrow. I took four damage. Okay. Mr. Mr.
Starting point is 00:20:19 Larkin Sparrow. Yeah. What happened? What is this? What is this monster? Lark says, this is the day we enacted Code Purple. Oh. And as he says that,
Starting point is 00:20:27 you see your past Sparrow throw his pistol to Hero. And he says, hold them off for as long as you can. I'm going for Code Purple. And past Lark says, you know, dad will never go for it.
Starting point is 00:20:34 And past Sparrow says, yeah, I know. And he grabs young normal's hand and he heads for the stairwell at the dead sprint. Oh, OK. Dad, why did you bring us here if we can die?
Starting point is 00:20:42 I didn't bring us here. You fucking, I guess, great grandfather, your great grandfather fucking Barry brought us here. I didn die? I didn't bring us here. You fucking, I guess, great-grandfather? Your great-grandfather fucking Barry brought us here. I didn't want to go here again. Oh, my God. Okay, all right.
Starting point is 00:20:50 Well, I guess, what do we do? Just ride this out? You stay with me. We'll keep it safe. Don't touch anything. Don't do anything. As long as we can stay with our older selves, I know we end up being okay.
Starting point is 00:20:59 So we just got to not get eaten by these or absorbed by these things. You know where it's safe. You've lived through this. Yes, exactly. Okay, so yeah, just stay with us. Yeah, we just got to stick together, but not like that stick together. not get eaten by these or absorbed by these things. You know where it's safe. You've lived through this. Yes, exactly. Okay, so yeah, just stay with it. We just got to stick together, but not like that stick together. Everybody like hands together, like in a pocket, like everybody's close. Hands together.
Starting point is 00:21:13 I put my hands out. Everybody hold hands. I can't see your hand. Oh, not you. I'm in my spouse's. Yeah. Okay, your spouse is getting invisible. So we're all invisible to each other, too.
Starting point is 00:21:21 Okay, so start feeling around everybody and tell you, oh, that's me. No, just stay with who you can see, okay? But we can't see each other okay just start feeling around everybody tell you oh that's me no just just stay with who you can see okay but we can't see each other well no but you we can't see uh lark and okay it's fair okay but if i feel something i'm gonna hug i'm hugging somebody who am i hugging oh that's me okay i got your hand okay great uh this is matt and will going through a haunted house you're on front yeah i don want, I guess it doesn't matter because I had seen through, it looks like I'm going in front even if you're in front. Creatures spill from every vent and window on this floor, grabbing Daddy's
Starting point is 00:21:51 staff and dripping their hot flesh into the screaming gobs of their victims, drowning them in unnatural skin. I don't want to die like that. May hails, hides under her desk, hand clamped over her mouth. Lark and Hero blast away at the creatures with pistols that seemingly never run out of ammo, every shot splattering one of the creatures only to be replaced by three more crawling over the corpse of their fallen brethren. So you follow Sparrow, you said, up the stairwell.
Starting point is 00:22:12 You run up the stairwell, feeling a familiar surge of psychic intelligence as you pass by the room with the hyper-intelligent whale. You follow Sparrow and Normal out into the dungeon, the huge collection of magical artifacts and weaponry that you remember from your time in Daddy's HQ. You remember it being in the basement, however, and not the top, because apparently this pyramid is actually above ground in this world and not inverted and underground like it was when you saw it earlier in your lives. You are in the dungeon with all the cool items and all the stuff, so you can spend as many turns as you like collecting items from Daddy's HQ. But every time you do, more of the creatures are going to crawl through the stairway and the ventilation to attack
Starting point is 00:22:43 you. So you also see. And let me ask you this. Will these items, can we take these with us? Yes. These will be with you for the rest of the game. You can also see creatures attacking members of daddies, slicing them into ribbons with their claws and smothering them in skin. Yeah, who cares about that?
Starting point is 00:22:54 You can also save those people, but this too will take time. So would you like to follow Normal and Sparrow upstairs or do you want to spend some time collecting some items here because it might be your last chance to do so to get some of these powerful items. So Sparrow, how long would you say, if you could remember,
Starting point is 00:23:10 like did we have before this floor kind of got eaten? This floor is going to get eaten in about two turns, I would say. Mr. Sparrow, what is the dopest shit? We have 12 seconds. Link's looking for an item. I'm asking Sparrow where the dopest shit is. Okay. How would you define dopest shit?
Starting point is 00:23:27 You know, how you define it. What can we kill Willy with? Like the strongest shit you got. What can we kill this big flesh monster with? Yeah, well, I mean. This is the area that's mostly not so much weapons, just magical items that can help you in other ways that aren't direct damage.
Starting point is 00:23:39 So there's a lot of good stuff here. There's the Boots of Levitation. There's the Zine of Truth, the Xbox, the Face Off, the One Ring to Repulse Them All, the Slap Bracelet of Befriending. Any of those sound interesting to you? Wait, wait. What did you say about the one before Face Off? The Xbox?
Starting point is 00:23:53 The Xbox? Wait, which one? I want the Xbox! So you run into a room that is locked with a big X on it, but it's open now because Lark and Sparrow still have the keys. So pass Lark and Sparrow, open it up for you. You guys never rekeyed these locks? Shut up. And inside you find a postage stamp with an X on it.
Starting point is 00:24:10 This was sent to us by Ben Dent. When you figure out what it does, you can thank Ben Dent for sending it in. What does this thing do? I got an 11. Six, just a six. With an 11, you can tell that throwing it down on the ground is how you activate it. And you can tell that throwing it down on the ground is how you activate
Starting point is 00:24:25 it and you can tell that using it is a even-ish chance for to be helpful or hurtful so i'll just take it and i'll pocket it size of a poster stamp you said size of a poster stamp i'll fit right in my little xbox pocket so yes you would like to yeah i don't want i wouldn't have come with uh taylor would have just ran into it would have been like get your own room full of with one item so there's the league would just gone into the closest room. Just cash and grab. Cash and grab? What is it called?
Starting point is 00:24:49 Smash and grab. Cash and grab. Cash and grab. All right. So I'm going to roll a dice to see which of these items he gets. That's all paying for something. You drop some cash. Then you grab it.
Starting point is 00:24:57 Inside this room that you found, Link, you see what looks to be like a lightsaber from a Lego set. It is called the Brick Sword and it was sent to us by Logan. Again, you can roll Arcana to see what it does. Link picks it up. Okay, so you immediately turn to a Lego version of yourself. Hey guys, all of your fingers fuse together
Starting point is 00:25:13 and your head becomes a cylinder like a Lego person. Is he small now? Is he Lego sized? He's human sized. He is now a cylindrical head. Wait, where are you? I can't see you. Guys, I feel a little different, but you can't see what I look like.
Starting point is 00:25:26 You feel, your body feels all plasticky. You're hugging me, remember? You're not touching me anymore. What do you mean? I don't feel anything. Oh my God, that's so sad. Oh God, that's dark. Wait, do you not feel anything if you're a Lego dude?
Starting point is 00:25:37 I'm just plastic. I just feel. I poke in the air behind me to where I think Link is. You touch him and he's definitely smooth plastic. I just start like hitting my hands together. I don't feel anything when I hit my hands together. Link, we're going to fix this. Don't you worry. What happened? Don't you worry, Link.
Starting point is 00:25:54 Okay. Wait, wait. You know that Lego plastic is like insanely powerful plastic, right? It's very good. And the fucking quality control is like, it's like microns. It's like a fucking, like, yeah, it's a fuzz. That's why a Lego piece from like 30 years ago will still snap in place today with a lego piece of today incredible scary's gonna just reach out and try to grab something that might help link okay i don't know i just like i don't feel anything did you want to roll arcana to see what this lego sword does
Starting point is 00:26:17 oh yeah i did i rolled a five so you have no idea i think it just killed me i can feel your corporeal form i'm gonna feel you touching me to try to fix you i reach out is there just a regular roll i can yeah do you mean the investigation roll that's a natural one oh no oh no so the natural one you find an item that undoes specifically legification and you break it in your hands on accident when you try to pick it up oh shit guys i didn't find anything uh there's nothing in here i i don't have knees no don't worry about that i can't play soccer if i don't have knees i want to get out of here i can't see anybody or feel anybody can i pick up something that he can see? Yeah, sure.
Starting point is 00:27:07 I pick up like a flashlight or something. I'm like, Link, fuck! You find the nearest thing, which we'll say is the zine of truth. Okay. Which was sent to us by K to DMock. And I will explain what it does if you succeed in an arcana roll.
Starting point is 00:27:17 If not, at the very least, I feel like that one just means she has no idea what it does. I actually just got a natural 20 on the arcana roll. On the arcana roll, okay. So when you pick up the zine of truth, you can tell that it does. I actually just got a natural 20 on the arcana roll. On the arcana roll, okay. So when you pick up the zine of truth, you can tell that it does
Starting point is 00:27:26 the following. It is a composition notebook covered in stickers and Sharpie marks. When opened, the individual that opens the zine must make a wisdom saving throw of 15. On a failed save,
Starting point is 00:27:35 the individual is immediately compelled to write their deepest, darkest secret on the first unmarked page and give it back to the person that gave it to them. Whoa. I'm not going to fuck with this right now,
Starting point is 00:27:44 but Link, just follow it. Can you see this book? with this right now, but Link, just follow. Can you see this book? Follow this book. Okay, yeah. And then you're following me and then we're going to get out of here because we've kind of run out of turns to get stuff. I think whatever I took also took my fingers.
Starting point is 00:27:56 I only had two. Oh, no, that's okay. Just keep walking. So you can keep looking for stuff. You'll just have to fight some of these creatures in order to do so. Normal would like to also search for something while all this is going on can we say that all four of these
Starting point is 00:28:08 things happen at the same time I see no reason not to okay and I got a sword just to be clear you got a brick sword that you are currently holding and I don't know what it does you don't know what it does I can't see myself and nobody can see me correct so there's a floating was a lightsaber is what you said it looks like a lightsaber from a lego set so it's a blocky
Starting point is 00:28:23 little lightsaber type thing give me an investigation roll that's a two minus one so a non-natural one great i'm gonna roll twice and pick the least useful thing of the two things that i roll for okay this actually feels in keeping with normal this item was sent to us by ross mckay thank you ross mckay this is the one ring to repulse them all it It is the most dazzling, beautiful, and captivating ring you've ever laid eyes upon. If you want to roll Arcana to see what it does, feel free. I got a 16, or 15 rather.
Starting point is 00:28:52 15 is great. So this is a ring that once worn will give off an aura of pure and utter repulsiveness to the wearer. No one wants to be near you or even look at you. And the wearer will always feel like the people around them can smell their BO, which will make anyone close to the wearer
Starting point is 00:29:04 want to get as far away as physically possible he was wearing this the whole time that's great yeah normal's been wearing this the entire time you literally normally you literally guys my wing is in here what's that all right well i guess i didn't really find anything other than the ring I'm already wearing. Yeah, I guess that's what you get for a non-natural one. So again, you can continue to look for items here. There's still some more items. You'll just have to roll to see
Starting point is 00:29:34 if any of the creatures notice you. And if so, you'll have to fight them or you can keep running. What do you guys want to do? Let's just keep going. I think everybody stay behind me. I'm pretty sure I can't die anymore. Yeah, use this large block. I think I'm dead. No, I don't stay behind me. I'm pretty sure I can't die anymore. Yeah, use this large block.
Starting point is 00:29:46 I think I'm dead. No, I don't think that. Or I'm not a person. No, it's okay, Link. I think you could probably die. Scary, you're not feeling what I'm feeling, which is nothing. Dude reaches out and touches you. Mr. I feel nothing.
Starting point is 00:29:59 I feel nothing, too. I feel nothing all the time. I feel nothing way worse than you. Yeah, no, I mean, no. No, I didn't. But I just feel nothingness because that's what's cool about me that's pretty okay dude goes you can probably die okay yeah listen to dude well okay within reason uh you can die and i want to kill everything in the world not everything not us dude no not you you guys are my friends normal's about to leave
Starting point is 00:30:21 but then a dark psychic presence calls to him from somewhere in this fucking chamber of secrets, if you will. This giant room full of magical items. I rolled an 11. What is calling to normal? So 11 is like a 50-50. So I'm going to roll a 50-50 to see if it's something good or something bad. Oh, 19. Okay, so it's something good.
Starting point is 00:30:38 You feel the call of... So this is your second turn. Yes. You feel a call of the Slap Bracelet of Befriending, which was sent to us by Natalie Boyd. Thank you, Natalie. That's nice. It seems like it is a useful item,
Starting point is 00:30:50 just objectively useful, and it has no ill effects that can be discerned from the feeling that you get from it. Okay, I'm going to roll an Arcana. I got a 10. With a 10, you can tell that it's a Slap Bracelet that comes with the ability to naturally cast Charm Person. Once you can beat a character's AC with it, you can slap the bracelet around a character ability to naturally cast charm person once you can beat
Starting point is 00:31:05 a character's ac with it you can slap the bracelet around a character's wrist and cast charm person automatically on them and the spell lasts forever until the bracelet is removed so it's like the opposite of the ring of repulsion basically yes exactly interesting interesting interesting just resets you to a baseline yeah yeah now you're just kind of like, meh, you're just mid. The worst thing anyone from Gen Z could be. He is neither cringed nor based. He is only mid. I sentence you to a lifetime of mid.
Starting point is 00:31:37 You've grabbed an item, so I'm going to roll to see if any of the creatures notice you. I'm going to say anything above a 10 is they don't notice you, and anything below a 10 is they notice you. So I rolled a 15, so they managed to completely ignore the fact that you grabbed a snap bracelet so what would everybody else like to do could we just get out of this memory we gotta get out of here what happened i need to see what i am we'll figure that out later for now you are our human shield well you might not be human i'm telling you i'm dead you hear you hear barry oak's voice rumbling through this memory and he goes, I can make you visible if that's what you want. No, I don't think so. No. What about just Link?
Starting point is 00:32:09 Yeah, I can do that. Can you do that for like a split second? Sure. So for a split second, you see a human sized Lego man. I don't see it, obviously. Although he put you in front of a mirror. No, I don't want to know. Let me close his eyes though.
Starting point is 00:32:22 You see a human sized Lego man. His clothes are just drawn onto his square torso his fingers are all locked together he has no knees i specifically want one of those things that you have to take the head off in order to yes you have a backpack in order to put on you see his face is like basically drawn on but it's changing with his expressions and that he's holding still this sword i think i'm gonna be sick okay and then he disappears quick teen huddle don't not wait no nobody say if you say as good like say nothing okay well here's what you're gonna do cover your ears real quick we need to have a quick discussion
Starting point is 00:32:54 i don't know where they are i don't think i have ears anymore and dude puts his hands over where your ears should be okay they aren't all right quick teen huddle can you you can't hear us right hey what the fuck? He can't see. I don't know. We'll fix it later. We gotta go. Here's what we're gonna do.
Starting point is 00:33:09 He looks like a Lego guy. We need him in front, clearing up. You know what I'm saying? He's our human shield. You understand? He leans. Oh, wait. What if we see somebody coming,
Starting point is 00:33:19 we tell Link to, like, go on the ground because there's nothing worse than stepping on a Lego. Oh, that's true. If we ride into a really big guy. a really big guy yeah yeah and we'll have him put his hands up his yellow strange plastic claw hands to try and puncture okay okay okay all right okay okay um link because you're such a good dude oh yeah yeah dude removes their hands okay i'm gonna do my best not to infer what happened to me based off of what you guys are all about to say. Don't think about it.
Starting point is 00:33:48 Just, we're going to make you our leader. Cool. And you're just going to- Am I strong now? Yeah, you're so strong. Yes. Okay. Yeah, and so we're just going to follow you.
Starting point is 00:33:56 Great. Okay. Okay. I'm going to walk forward. Is everybody done looking for items? Normal's really wondering what dark psychic force was calling him to pick up his charm bracelet. Maybe a dark psychic force that was him to pick up his charm bracelet. Maybe a dark psychic force that was like, maybe try showering.
Starting point is 00:34:09 Scary also feels a dark psychic force. And I rolled a 14 for dark psychic force. Okay, so you once again get a friendly dark psychic force that directs you towards boots of levitation. These are a normal Dungeons and Dragons-ass item that do exactly what they sound like.
Starting point is 00:34:25 Well, like how high can you levitate? Yeah, but you gotta pump them up like Reebok pumps first. Oh, yeah, dude. It's how many pumps. That's the mechanic. You have to pump it up a certain number of times, but it's up to you.
Starting point is 00:34:35 I have to pump the jam? Levitate allows you to rise vertically up to 20 feet. Oh, wow. And then you can walk forward? The target can only move by pushing or pulling against a fixed object or surface within reach. So you can't just like naturally walk. you'll have to like use momentum and gravity like a gondola pole it's like that prank that they do on people on the iss sorry there's like
Starting point is 00:34:52 a prank that they've done i've seen a video of this where they just put someone in the middle of the room and then they pull away everything and they're like guess what idiot you're stuck and they're like oh they just got the love of god mantra sword cool i got some cute boots all All right, let's go. Anybody else? I'm good with my Xbox. Let's just get out of this memory, right? We probably got the juice, right?
Starting point is 00:35:10 We got out of the memory now. When we get the juice? No. Who said that? So you can't see Lark's face, but he goes, no. Okay. This is not the important part of the memory. Oh, okay.
Starting point is 00:35:20 Let's just keep going. Well, I'll follow you. No, no, no. You're the leader now. Yeah, I know. I'm the leader. So I say I'm following Lark. I don't know where to go. Lark goes, fine, sure. Well, I'll follow you. No, no, no. You're the leader now. Yeah, I know. I'm the leader. So I say I'm following Lark. Yeah.
Starting point is 00:35:26 I don't know where to go. Lark goes, fine, sure. Okay, fine. Follow me. And Lark leads you upstairs. How do we follow? Do we tie something around? Are y'all holding onto me?
Starting point is 00:35:32 Yeah, like, you know what? Oh, yeah. I look for like a curtain string, something to tie like a big leash around all of us. I take the laces out of the boots. Oh, perfect. All right. Everyone take a lace.
Starting point is 00:35:42 What a useful item. You follow Sparrow in the past as he's holding normal around. And on the way up through the dungeon, you see Sparrow grab a ring that you recognize as the ring of swapping from way back when, and a memory syringe, which you also recognize from way back when. Upon reaching the top floor, you see a slightly younger Henry Oak. Alarms are going off.ry is in his office what is henry doing when the alarms are going off as creatures are crawling through the air ducts trying to get at him i feel like can mercedes be here too yeah why not i feel like mercedes and henry are just like back to back
Starting point is 00:36:14 like the boys enjoying their last night of passion right before they die no they're blasting guys and they're like handing each other crystal guys together matthew arnold mercedes do other stuff besides have sex they also fight evil and daddy's hq right now they're like handing each other scrolls and firing off spells and just like trying to hold down the fort while uh henry is like looking at there's like a big control monitor showing like the levels of daddy's hq and he's like command group three get to section J of the, you know, that corridor, the one with the soda pop machine in it. They told us to get rid of, get down there. There's more guys coming in. So you see those guys get to that, that hallway on the screen. You see that Henry is doing a great job of, of sort of directing traffic from up here in the office. So Sparrow bursts into the room, blasts a creature in the
Starting point is 00:37:01 face, steps over its corpse and asks, where's the dimensional amplifier, dad? The what? The dimensional amplifier. It's an item. You have it in this office somewhere, right? You kept it from us. What do you need it for? So he says, I found a way to send the doodler
Starting point is 00:37:14 back to its home dimension. I can fix all this. Like I found a way to do it. I'm not going to do code purple. It's something else. I found a thing. Henry's going to do an insight check on his son. That's advantage.
Starting point is 00:37:23 Yeah, it's your son. Does that mean the other daddies are here too? No, they're not here. Oh, Daryl and Ron. They're off doing other adventures. Cool. They're all on the CIA in memoriam wall because they've all died by this point.
Starting point is 00:37:34 Oh my God. I got a 15. So the 15, you can tell that he is definitely lying. He is trying to enact a code purple. Sparrow, no, we can't. What are you talking about? Get down there. We got to contain this.
Starting point is 00:37:44 He said, there's no containing it. As you see on the screen, almost every guard station is being overrun. The office workers are being overrun by the flesh horde that is tearing people to shreds. The entirety of Daddy's looks like it has been compromised and it looks like it's not going to really have any way of saving itself outside of divine intervention. And he says, Dad, look, I know you don't like the idea of Code Purple, but it's all we have left. It's going to. We are not going to doom another world to deal with this thing.
Starting point is 00:38:10 Sparrow, get your head in the game. Sparrow goes, fine, I'll find it myself. And he starts searching the room. He rules a 15 investigation. So he finds that there is a safe underneath Henry's desk. And Sparrow goes, combo. I need the combo. I cast Wall of Stone around the safe.
Starting point is 00:38:25 OK. Wall of Stone just does, I assume, exactly what it sounds like. I mean, technically, I need the combo. I cast Wall of Stone around the safe. Okay. Wall of Stone just does, I assume, exactly what it sounds like. I mean, technically, I'm supposed to play jazz ball to do this. It's fine. Oh, it's fine. That's interesting.
Starting point is 00:38:35 I just don't want to shame you by how easily Will would beat the first level of jazz ball. Okay, well, okay, okay. That hurts my feelings. Anything else to say, gamer? Fuck off. I'll do it right now. Yeah, do it, Will. That hurts my feelings. Anything else to say, gamer? Um, fuck off. You know what, I'll do it right now. Yeah, do it, Will.
Starting point is 00:38:48 I'm doing it. Let's see. You have to read the instructions first and see that they don't make much sense. How to play. Left, correct, right, easy, easy. That's not easy.
Starting point is 00:39:00 It just says... Arcade, here we go, here we go. And then you go arcade. But you can't just do the left or right any percentage speed run okay well i'm i'm just all right level one completed how many do i need to do anything you've done it you've done it you've done it and you've heard best feelings it's a win-win win-win scenario okay so a big wall of stone erupts around sparrow separating him from the safe so sparrow reaches into his pocket to try to find something and in that moment you hear a hissing
Starting point is 00:39:28 noise and as you turn to find the source of a hissing noise you see that one of these creatures is looking directly at you. It doesn't look like it's looking through you. It somehow looks like it's looking at your group and it sees you. And one of the CCS. It sees us. It sees us. It sees us. So you have one visible moment to do something. I'm gonna
Starting point is 00:39:43 throw the Xbox at its feet. Okay. Ooh. Risky visible moment to do something. I'm going to throw the X-Box at its feet. Okay. Ooh. Risky. You see the stamp, the postage stamp turns into a coffin sized wooden box
Starting point is 00:39:52 that contains an X of whoever threw it. So what is, do you think that Taylor has an X? That's fucked.
Starting point is 00:40:01 So you have to, you have to get a body pillow in there. It's a body pillow there so you must give a command before you open the box to my body pillow you don't know it's your body pillow yet okay so i see the box i'm like it must be some kind of fierce warrior attack okay so uh now make a charisma throw my riz throw baby now make a charisma throw my riz throw baby it's a good opportunity to reveal like him and hero dated once natural one natural one so the xbox opens and from it a floating body pillow anime waifu body
Starting point is 00:40:39 pillow comes up but its eyes are red and its fangs are bared on the body pillow and the fangs are actually like physical 3d fangs that are coming out of the body pillow and it goes this and it just comes straight at you fly straight at you taylor what humico no and bites you directly on the face not like this rolling a d8 i was like what i have to know how is this your ex did your mom throw away this pillow did you throw it away i just developed feelings for it yeah what happened dude yeah that's what exactly what it still got another body pillow dude your pillow that was a little better stuff no it was more absorbent. Not the memory phone. This memory phone remembers all the contours. So currently, if an objective viewer were to look at the scene,
Starting point is 00:41:30 they see basically a body pillow just tackling something that's wriggling on the ground but invisible. Henry back in the memory is like, God damn it, we need to, what the? Okay, so that was what you did to try to deal with the monster. Normal has a play for the flesh monster that's running at us. Okay, go that was what you did to try to deal with the monster. Normal has a play for the flesh monster that's running at us. Okay, go for it.
Starting point is 00:41:46 Which is like, I'm going to wrap the charm purslane bracelet around the ring to see if they create some sort of like negative energy bomb and throw it at it. Because they're kind of, it's like a humidifier and a dehumidifier. I'm trying to overload the magic circuitry here.
Starting point is 00:41:59 Roll it. Give me a luck roll of D20. If it's more than a 10, then it'll work exactly the way you want it to. That's an 11. Okay, so with an 11, it does exactly what you want. The aura of pure and utter repulsiveness
Starting point is 00:42:09 combines with the aura of utter friendship, and it pops off, and the creature is knocked backwards in a wave of ambivalence. And then I'll swing at it with my sword. How did the creature react to the body pillow, though? The creature did not react at all. It's too busy salivating and self-slaver to things like that same way your cat would which is just i
Starting point is 00:42:31 watched you so you swing the sword go ahead and give me an attack roll link that's a 22 wow okay whoa so it's gonna do 1d8 slashing damage and then 1d8 Lego bricks are going to shatter from the impact and hit the ground. Oh, interesting. So give me two 1d8 rolls. I got a seven for damage. Okay, good damage. Five Lego bricks.
Starting point is 00:42:53 Okay, so five Lego bricks hit the ground. The creature tries to move towards you and absorb the blow, but when it does, it stands on one of the Lego bricks and takes 2d12 piercing damage. Oh my God. So any creature that tries to step on you or the Lego bricks that come out
Starting point is 00:43:07 of it, take 2d 12 piercing damage. So should I roll as piercing damage? Yes, please. Seven to seven. Okay. So seven,
Starting point is 00:43:13 it's feet splay out. It loses its footing. It goes and hits the ground and its chin knocks on like a Lego empire state building and it impales it through its lower jaw. Link just stares at the Lego pieces and he's just slowly, he's just like, oh,
Starting point is 00:43:29 oh no. Let's get out of here. Do you think someone's ever died stepping on Legos? I don't think so. No. Probably not from the Lego.
Starting point is 00:43:37 Maybe somebody died because they tripped or. No, that's what I mean. Like they stepped on the Lego which caused them to stumble and then like. Yeah,
Starting point is 00:43:42 probably. Absolutely. And die? Yeah. Some people probably fell down the stairs or something. Yeah, people fall down the stairs yeah probably absolutely and die yeah people fall down the stairs all the time yeah people fall down the stairs all the time was it was the legos in the fall killed him i wouldn't be surprised if somebody cut their foot on a lego and got sepsis because shit's crazy people have died from tiny little cuts before that's right it happens i think about it a lot people die scary sees what just happened with the legos and it's just like,
Starting point is 00:44:07 see Link, you're greater than the sum of your parts. Oh God, sorry, I'm a Lego? Well, I mean, yeah, yeah, that's, yeah, you're a Lego. Okay, cool, let's. Let's go. Yeah, let's keep going. Like Lego, like let's go. Oh God, I can't wait to hear that for the rest of my life.
Starting point is 00:44:21 You see a past sparrow pull out what looks to be a screwdriver. He jams it into the mortar between two of the stones and he smacks it with the rest of my life. You see a past sparrow pull out what looks to be a screwdriver. He jams it into the mortar between two of the stones and he smacks it with the heel of his hand and the stones pop away. Not because it's a screwdriver
Starting point is 00:44:33 because it's magical. Okay. Just so you don't think that that's how I think screwdrivers work. I know that's not how they work. I know that's not how they work. Anthony Burke,
Starting point is 00:44:39 screwdriver user. And he's going to try to paw at the safe, the combo safe, and see if he can lock pick it so henry's gonna confront sparrow okay like sparrow i know you're scared right now mister but we need to be brave like we can't give up on our most sacred principles just because things are looking a little tough okay you know what we'll we'll abandon daddy's hq we'll regroup we'll build a
Starting point is 00:45:00 new daddy's hq and we'll figure it out We can't let this turn us into something this horrible. Sparrow says, mom, can you talk to him? And Mercedes looks to you and looks back at Sparrow. And she goes, your father's right. We can't take the easy way out. And he goes, Jesus Christ. And he is going to pull out a gun, his gun, and shoot the lock on the safe. So he gets a five.
Starting point is 00:45:19 So it doesn't penetrate the lock, but it's now very clear what he is trying to do. He's going to blast his way into the safe. And within a turn, he's going to be able to get inside. Sparrow, I don't have time to have a rational conversation with you right now about this, okay? But I am the director of Daddy's HQ and you work for Daddy's HQ. So, you know, I don't want to put my foot down
Starting point is 00:45:37 and be Mr. Authority about this, but we really are not going to do this, okay? So as you say, we're really not going to do this. One of those flesh creatures tackles Henry from behind and pins into the desk by his wrists and looks like it's about to try to start bleeding flesh onto you. Mercedes jumps on back of it and starts stabbing away with a knife, but it doesn't seem to be doing a lot. Sparrow and Henry are like eye to eye as Sparrow sort of has a moment where you can decide to try to save you or go after the safe. And he looks at you, Henry. He looks at Mercedes.
Starting point is 00:46:07 He looks at the security camera footage that shows the entirety of Daddy's HQ being overrun. And he sees one of the creatures turn on normal and leap through the air towards toddler normal, the past normal, the adorable one. Not the gross one now. Yeah, not the gross one. Before everything changed. Before the puberty. And he's going to see all this happening.
Starting point is 00:46:26 And he looks at you, Henry, and he looks at normal. And you can't really tell who he's saying this to, but he just says, I'm sorry. And he blasts the safe open. The lock comes off. He wrenches it open and inside finds the amplifier that you used previously. The dimensional amplifier. And some other fucked up shit. Some other real fucked up shit.
Starting point is 00:46:44 Real fucked up. Real fucked up. Weird cia like level shit whoa if you look in there you'll know who really killed jfk yes thank you yes the fucking the rock ass shit fuck yeah just jfk is sitting in there uh well uh secret sweetheart let me out. Let me out. I'm free. And he leaps out of the safe and immediately gets tackled and mauled by one of the flesh monsters. He goes, ah. Ah, yeah, right.
Starting point is 00:47:14 Something about asking not. We chose to swap with the moon in this decade. So Sparrow plugs the ring into it, plugs the syringe into it, and Code Purple activates. There's no drama behind it. There's no moment of buildup. There's no big, loud noise.
Starting point is 00:47:28 Suddenly, there's just a bunch of people there. And then the next second, there are a bunch of very confused gnomes and elves and dwarves who are, in short order, torn to pieces by the doodlerized flesh horde. Whoa, it's just human beings? Are we still in here? You feel yourself getting pulled along in the memory, along with all the humans that were inside Daddy's HQ, to Faererun now that Code Purple has happened. Very suddenly, Daddy's HQ inverts.
Starting point is 00:47:51 The pyramid is now a pyramid that goes underground rather than when it comes out of the top of the ground. And the room is now upside down and everybody falls to basically what is the ceiling now. And there are no creatures left. It's just normal and Mercedes and Henry and now Sparrow and Lark comes rushing down the stairs into the room. So Henry rolls off. He's on the ground now, right? Yeah. So he gets up. What? What did you do? Did it? What? Did it work? What? Oh, my God. Oh, no, no, no, no, no, no. Is there a like a monitor or anything? Like what is the room look like? So there were basically a bunch of monitors that you could see all the, you know,
Starting point is 00:48:26 people you were directing. You could see every inch of daddy's HQ through the monitors and the security camera footage. Okay, but it's all upside down. It's all upside down now. So the building came with us. Yeah. All the humans came with you.
Starting point is 00:48:35 None of the monsters came with you and daddy's HQ came with you. Henry rushes to, is there like a window? Are we underground? You are all underground. So when you rush to the window, you just see a bunch of soil. Oh my God. I turned back to Sparrow and I just stare at him in shock.
Starting point is 00:48:51 And he says, I'm sorry. Do you realize, son, what you just did? I know exactly what I did. And I know you're angry, but I saved you and I saved mom and I saved my son and I saved my daughter. And we'll find a way to get back and fix things. Tell that to Walter. Tell that to you're angry, but I saved you and I saved mom and I saved my son and I saved my daughter and we'll find a way to get back and fix things. Tell that to Walter. Tell that to Aaron. Tell that to everyone we knew who is dealing with what we were just dealing with it because you just visited it upon all of them. So Sparrow kind of just nods and looks at your feet because he can't bear to look you in the eye. I love you, son, but I will never forgive you for this. And then Henry turns away and walks over to the wall and just breaks down. Mercedes goes towards Sparrow and hugs him. She says, I know you did
Starting point is 00:49:38 the best that you could, but you needed to be a lot better. And she walks over to Henry, takes him by the hand, and then tries to lead him back up the stairs out of the building. Little Normal is still watching all of this go down and sees his dad standing there. What does he see? He sees his dad standing there. Tears beginning to well up in his eyes. He sees Lark coming over to Sparrow and put a hand on his shoulder. Lark says, you did the right thing. Sparrow shakes his head and he looks at Normal and he goes,
Starting point is 00:50:22 Normal, you're about to forget everything that you saw here. But I in this last moment before it's all gone, I want you to know that I did it for you. I did it to keep you safe. One day you're going to find out what I did, and I don't think you'll ever forgive me for it. And I don't think maybe I should be forgiven, but I did it for you. And I love you more than anything. And I'm sorry, you're not going to remember this. Young normal's eyes roll back into his head and he falls over as does everybody,
Starting point is 00:50:51 every human on earth, with the exception of high ranking diabetes members. And they forget that they were ever in another plane of existence. And as far as they know, they were always in Faerun. They were always in this weird world that you know as Faerun, but we know as his home. You feel gravity pull you back towards the present time. You feel Barry yanking you back into the present, and you see the Oak Boys all assembled before you, a purple cloud of daddy magic emanating from them like a miasma. It smells of regret and of mistakes that cannot be taken back. The purple magic swirls in the air
Starting point is 00:51:27 and then flows into the jar that you've been collecting all the daddy magic in and the jar is now full. You now have everything you need to send the dude back to their home dimension.
Starting point is 00:51:35 You notice that dude is staring into the middle distance with a horrified look on their face. Oh no, oh no. We shouldn't have brought dude to this.
Starting point is 00:51:43 I killed all those people. Well, you didn't. The flesh thing, I you to this. I killed all those people. Well, you didn't. The flesh thing, I made that thing. I did that one day for funsies. We've all killed people at this point, I guess. I guess that's true. Wait, sorry, is Link still a Lego guy?
Starting point is 00:51:58 Yeah, so now that you're back in time, you see that Link is a Lego guy, and I'm going to just go ahead and say it because now you've used it. As long as you're holding onto the sword, you will be a Lego guy. Oh, guy oh that's all it is yeah if you put the sword down or put it in your pocket or whatever you'll stop being a lego guy link just tips straight over he goes to fall to his knees but he has no knees he just like falls flat and face down and he starts talking to your and then his head just rotates 180 so that his face is facing up again he goes whatever like yeah that's what happened but
Starting point is 00:52:25 you know what are we gonna do just keep fighting off and I don't care anymore and I just throw away the sword your neck is dry your head's on backwards and you immediately die wait am I human now sorry yes you were human okay all right I'm human
Starting point is 00:52:41 what a roller coaster of emotion I don't know what to tell you. Like, you didn't know what you were doing. You know, you're just a kid. We didn't know that either. You know, we didn't know you were just a kid like us. So, you know. Yeah, you don't got to blame yourself.
Starting point is 00:53:02 Although it was jacked up. No one's saying it wasn't jacked up. But I don't think you would have done it if you had known. Right. Right. No. Yeah. No, I don't think I would. So unless unless I was in bad girl mode because they deserved it or something. But I don't think the people in there deserved a bad girl. So normal seeing all of his friends immediately consult dude after this whole memory. Just kind of he's just watching them and just being like, they're not talking to me because they know it's my fault,
Starting point is 00:53:28 not dude's fault. And so while they're talking to him, he just walks off into the woods. Well, can I roll perception to, yeah, go ahead. It's only because dude talked right away.
Starting point is 00:53:37 Yeah. Yeah. Yeah. The squeaky wheel gets 11. So with 11, you notice this happen. Normal, but normal just keeps walking.
Starting point is 00:53:44 Fuck normal. Come back. No, just go on. Normal. What? Normal just keeps walking. Fuck. Normal, come back. No. Just go on without me. Just go. Just go. Just go. Go on without you?
Starting point is 00:53:53 Oh, man. It's not funny, Scary. Then what is it? What do you mean, what is it? It's all my fault. So what do you want? What do you want from me? How is it your fault?
Starting point is 00:54:00 Because I let the fucking thing out. And then my dad did the thing. And so this is all my fault so i shouldn't be involved in this i'm probably gonna make it worse that's all my family ever does so uh you guys just go on and i'll just i will stay out of it that's probably the best thing i can do normal listen did you hear what i just said to dude did you hear when it's not dude's fault because dude is just saying i'm a person right dude was just a kid and so are you so are you you still are we're all just kids you know and and yes we've done bad things i've done bad things right i've
Starting point is 00:54:33 done terrible terrible things i've fucking tried to kill you i tried to kill you and he's you hugged me you know why would i ever think that this was all your fault? It was just this fucked up situation. Yeah. You got to stay with us. Otherwise, I mean, you stay. Otherwise what? What do you mean? This is all we have.
Starting point is 00:54:53 My dad doomed two worlds for me and he doesn't even like me. So what am I supposed to do with that? I don't, I just like, what is this man? We like you. Yeah. There's nothing to do with that. That's you. I just. What is this, man? We like you. Yeah, there's nothing to do with that. That's you. You're right.
Starting point is 00:55:06 Everything you just said is right. Okay. So what do you want to do next? You want to just walk away? I mean, at least we have each other. I mean, like Scary said, we forgave her. We've all killed. We've all done things like you guys stayed with me even after like the firefighters and
Starting point is 00:55:21 everything else that's happened. Like, yeah, I know. Sorry. It's funny now. I guess. I guess on the scale of everything that's happened. I mean, everybody died. I don't know. There's just so much death. It's just like, I mean,
Starting point is 00:55:34 I think I could forgive that. I just think if you just walked away from us just because that's something I couldn't forgive. Yeah, so the past is the past, normal. And there are many things we regret. I can't accept that. I am why I don't. Guys, I didn't think about the future. We're close to, I mean, if not fixing,
Starting point is 00:55:51 we're close to doing the only thing that we know that we can do. So I just like, I don't know. I don't know. I don't know. We are on a path to try and fix all this. And if you walk away from it now, what does that make you, man? I don't know. You can mope after you
Starting point is 00:56:05 try to fix it fine i'll just shut up and we'll just keep going you're right no fuck it whatever whatever it's fine it's fine right i'm fuck me so let's just go let's just go i'm being stupid so forget it you're not being stupid normal the thing is yeah we're all trying to fix this but we might not be able to okay it might just be that we've just got to you know find a way to like live with this but together and I'm just saying that yeah we've all been through all this you know bad bad bad shit but sometimes I had fun and when I think about it it was because I was with you guys so I don't want to be without you guys and I think that we could we could just try to make things better and know that you know if nothing else we tried I just feel like I you know you guys you know i'm really good at being safe with the hot
Starting point is 00:57:07 glue guns yeah you know all four of the the rules you know i was always kind of like how do i know that stuff you know even though i i never you know what how do i know how do i know all these things about guns how do i know i never glued something and i see this and I'm like, you know, maybe that's why, but I'm also like, I get why my dad looks at me the way he does, because he did all this. He fucked over everyone he knew and he destroyed his relationship with his dad and his mom for me and my sister. And I'm not even, I'm not even, I don not even I don't I don't know I just I feel like every time he looks at me I know that and there's a part of me still knew it and that's why I don't even like myself that much and like you know because what is there what ultimately is there right like you know you guys all have your stuff that you're good at and you have your
Starting point is 00:57:59 stuff that you're proud of yourselves for but I don't have anything I don't fucking anything I just had this white stupid fucking costume because I can't I, but I don't have anything. I don't fucking anything. I just had this white, stupid fucking costume because I can't, I don't have it, right? All I have is a fucking dad who sees me as somebody who fucking grew up to be a disappointment
Starting point is 00:58:13 after he did all this stuff for me. Yeah, that sounds like a him problem. Yeah, that's... That sounds like it's his fault. That doesn't sound like... Let me put it this way, Norm. I didn't grow up into somebody you can be proud of
Starting point is 00:58:27 after you did all that Norm we are proud of you and you know what cause you're the glue Norm you're the fucking hot glue that keeps us together man you keep this whole school together oh shit we would be nowhere without you man
Starting point is 00:58:43 so we're not gonna let you walk into the forest by yourself cause We would be nowhere without you, man. So we're not going to let you walk into the forest by yourself. Because where would we be without our hot glue, huh? Teen high may be one of the most mediocre teams in terms of football
Starting point is 00:58:53 and athletics. But we're in the middle of the pack because of you, Norm. Without you, without the school spirit keeping those football teams and the basketball teams together,
Starting point is 00:59:01 we would be dead last. Look, I think the biggest problem is your dad still hasn't grown up into somebody that you should be proud of it's not it's not on you like okay i don't i don't know at least you're feeling something like that's that's good and at the end of the day i can't tell you what you should do but i don't know i just think we have to keep doing what it is that we got here to do and hopefully we can make things better. And if not, then we tried, I don't know.
Starting point is 00:59:32 I don't know, Norm. I wish I could help you, but I, I, I really, I, I appreciate you guys saying that. I, I don't know if I could believe it yet. Um, but if you guys believe it and I look up to you guys, so I, I, I don't know if I could believe it yet. Um, but if you guys believe it and I look up to you guys, so I, I'll, I'll try. Yeah, no, I don't think I believe, I mean, I'll be, I don't think I believe it. Oh, okay. Well, fuck me then. I guess.
Starting point is 00:59:56 No, I don't know. I don't, it's not a new, I'm just letting you guys know. I don't feel, I don't know. I don't really care. Don't really feel about it. I just know that I would be sad if you got out of here. Cause yeah. I don't know i don't really care don't really feel that about it i just know that i would be sad if you got out of here because yeah i don't know that'd be harder for me i guess but i don't know i'm just i hope you feel better okay i i guess i do feel a little better and i'm sorry you don't feel well either and i'm not trying to monopolize the whole moment here you know so if you want to
Starting point is 01:00:21 you know talk about your stuff link oh no we can do that just you know whenever you want because you know that's okay let's just finish this dude puts a hand on your shoulder normal and goes you're you're good thanks dude you're good too you're a good dude and i i tap dude's hand dude nods let's send you that moment, Sparrow sort of comes from the campfire and sort of intentionally steps a little heavy so you can hear that he's coming. And he goes, Who goes there?
Starting point is 01:00:52 It's me, Sparrow. Just walk normally. What are you doing? Yeah. Clopping around? I just wanted you to know that I was coming. Why? You think I couldn't detect your hearing from two miles away?
Starting point is 01:01:03 Fair enough. I was just wondering if you wanted to, I was hoping to talk to my son. Okay. Yeah. Yeah. Yeah. Oh, you don't want us here for that? No, I was just hoping to talk to just him and dude, actually.
Starting point is 01:01:16 You're okay with that normal? Yeah, I'm okay with that. Thanks, Gary. Okay. All right, bye. You guys head back to the camp. I flip him off as he walks by me. Behind him, I give the jerking off motion,
Starting point is 01:01:26 like, check this guy out. Yeah. Sparrow sits down between you and dude, and he puts a hand on your shoulder, and then he thinks better of it, and he removes his hand, and he goes, this isn't your fault.
Starting point is 01:01:38 This is my fault, the relationship that you and I have. When I looked at you, I saw my own failure, and that was me blaming myself, and I have. When I looked at you, I saw my own failure and that was me blaming myself and I was taking it out on you and that wasn't fair. And you're a good kid. You're a really, really good kid. You're the best son of a guy I could ask for. You don't hurt people. You're kind. You're giving. You're always loyal to your friends and to your school,
Starting point is 01:02:02 even when it gives you every reason not to be. And you do, you're similar. You're trying your best and, you know, sorry, I'm bad at talking about my feelings and stuff, but it's okay. I just want you to know that I,
Starting point is 01:02:15 I love you very much and I am proud of you. Uh, normal is going to roll an insight on that. And I got a seven, no way of knowing for sure. Okay. I, um, I'm glad that you're now proud of me
Starting point is 01:02:32 after... Never mind, Dad. Never mind. I'm... Well, I mean, there's one more thing, which is important. And it's that one of these days,
Starting point is 01:02:45 your family is going to stop falling for this trick. And in that moment, a hand comes up with a collar around the dude's neck and the image of Sparrow dissipates and becomes Willie Stampler. He puts the collar on dude and he goes, he wants to run towards Willie. Yeah, everybody can run towards Willie.
Starting point is 01:03:05 Y'all get one turn to do Willy. Yeah, yeah, yeah. Y'all get one turn to do something. I think Taylor doesn't. Fuck! Taylor was already fucking doing s'mores, dude. Lark looks around in a panic looking for his brother. The collar just reminded me was. It says follow all of Willy's instructions to the letter.
Starting point is 01:03:18 I'm going to attack. Okay. Willy. I'm going to do improve divine sm Divine Smite, an 11 hit DC. That's not going to hit him, I don't think. Oh, no, it does. He has an AC of 10 because he's a sorcerer. So it does hit him, so go ahead and roll damage.
Starting point is 01:03:33 All right, I'm going to do Radiant. We said he's an undead or a fiend. He's not. He is a fiend. He's a little fiend. He's a fiend for mojitos. Fiend for mojitos, goddamn. It's going to be a 4d8, I believe.
Starting point is 01:03:45 Dang, dog, 4d8, I believe. Dang, dog. 4d8? 18. So you do 18 damage to him. What does everybody else do? I cast Finger of Death. Okay. You send negative energy coursing through a creature that you can see within range, causing it searing pain.
Starting point is 01:03:58 Target must make a constitution saving throw. Takes 7d8 plus 30 necrotic damage on a failed save. So he fails the save, but he's going to use one of his legendary resistances to make himself save. Fuck off. What a coward. So what happens on a successful save? You take half that damage. Okay, so go ahead and roll the damage and I will have it for you. 69. Nice. Nice.
Starting point is 01:04:17 69 damage was half? No, that would be full. Wow. 35 damage. Normal and Taylor, your turns are left. You go so it's 35 damage. Normal and Taylor, your turns are left. You go and then I'll go. Taylor's going to draw his bow. No.
Starting point is 01:04:30 Does Taylor have a ranged weapon? I feel like I do. You just say you're eating s'mores. You've always got your ninja stars. Okay, Taylor's going to throw the- Every time Taylor eats a graham cracker, he eats it in the shape of a shuriken first. No, one of those- Cast darkness.
Starting point is 01:04:41 Stick that you use the marshmallow. Cast thaumaturgy andgy to have the dads come Taylor's gonna be like I've realized the skewer he sees on one hand a skewer with a little flaming
Starting point is 01:04:51 marshmallow and then over there it's a strip of wood and then over there the shoelace and Taylor's like I've been waiting my whole life
Starting point is 01:04:58 for this moment and he expertly strings the bow knocks the fucking arrow draws it and does sneak attack onto Willie from all the way over by the fucking arrow, draws it, and does sneak attack onto Willie from all the way over
Starting point is 01:05:06 by the fire. Isn't it a sneak attack? Yeah. That's the most plausible thing about this. I'll give it to you. Why not? Because here's why. Here's why.
Starting point is 01:05:15 Because he didn't see you specifically? No, because the fire is backlighting me, therefore hiding me from his sight. Okay. I think it's less the sneak attack than the creating a bow from three disparate things within the movement. Shut the fuck up,
Starting point is 01:05:26 Matt. 11 plus 8. 19. That hits his armor class. And I do an extra 76 damage. 76? Sneak attack, dog. I know when we're not going to win a fight. 29. Imagine if we killed Willie.
Starting point is 01:05:40 29. And that's on top of the normal damage. So 29 plus 5. 34 damage. It is done? And he's on fire, I bet. No, his armor's made of chocolate. No, because the fucking
Starting point is 01:05:53 the marshmallow is on fire. I technically get two attacks per action. Can I do my second attack? Yeah, go for it. Andy's so blasé about this because these numbers mean nothing
Starting point is 01:06:02 because this is a cut scene. I'm going to grapple, which is if I make another grapple check. I'm just going to say that I held half my action for Taylor's thing, so I'm going to use the skewer that he shot. I'm going to try to pull it. I'm going to, like, grab him, like, around his neck. You know, like a spy. Like you're going to choke him with it. Choke him with it.
Starting point is 01:06:18 Go ahead. 25. Okay, well, that definitely works. So he is now grappled. Hell yeah. Normal, seeing all of this go go down is going to touch dude. And do we have the jar with us? Yes.
Starting point is 01:06:29 I'm going to touch dude and the jar. We don't know how to use the jar yet, do we? No, not yet. What happens if I drink it? Yo, dog. You certainly can. That seems risky. We're about to lose our eldritch horror friend.
Starting point is 01:06:42 So here's what I'd like to do. I have a spell called Plane Shift. You and up to eight willing creatures who link hands in a circle are transported to a different plane of existence. So I was like, okay, great. I can touch dude and teleport dude away from Willy. But I'm like, where do I want to teleport them?
Starting point is 01:06:57 I'm like, oh, to their home. And I'm wondering if there's any way I can like vibe out like what the secret to using the daddy magic is. If you get a natural 20 arcana. That's an 11. Okay, so in that case, I'm going to grab dude, and I'm going to try to teleport dude back to heaven, since we know Willy can't go to heaven.
Starting point is 01:07:15 I say the gates of heaven. Or I say heaven. Interior heaven day. Is there anything? It just happens? In theory, it just happens. Isie touching yes okay so you're gonna go to heaven with willie dog well shooting from the hip here do it dude and then i guess link is grappling willie yeah so i don't know what happens to link link goes with you okay okay so link willie dude and Normal all go to heaven.
Starting point is 01:07:46 They find themselves at the gates of heaven at the end of the line, once again, with Jerry, the guy who pretends to be God. And Willie looks around in absolute wonderment of what's going on. And he goes, I cannot thank you enough. Uh-oh. Oh, this is even better than I thought.
Starting point is 01:08:03 Up, back, back home, I back home undo and then he's going to control z control z control z i cast control z anthony that would be a sick spell by the way like an item that lets you just undo one thing the last action that you took that is a fun spell yeah link wants to scream at one of the angels angels just kill me of us. Judge me! Judge me! Willie is going to cast Dimension Door on himself and dude. And they are going to suddenly move 500 feet ahead of themselves beyond the gates of heaven. Willie is going to grab the gates of heaven with his arms. And he goes, normal, thanks. This was all you.
Starting point is 01:08:43 And he slams the gates of heaven closed and heaven goes dark all our days whisked away but is there something more to say you know that no one knows us better than ourselves you should tell myself it'll be all right. Pretty lies let me sleep at night. I know that no one knows me better than myself. And I know I'll get this right. It's just a matter of time till we make it out alive. We gotta pick ourselves up and say, not today, no, not today. We live for tomorrow, baked steel and borrowed, brave where we can't change.
Starting point is 01:09:37 We gotta pick ourselves up and say, not today, no, not today. I don't need your sorrow Come back tomorrow I'll be on my way I'll be on my way Dungeons & Dags is Matt Arnold as Lincoln Lee Wilson Anthony Birch is our DM Will Campos is Normal Oak
