Publisher's summary

Sure, you think you know the story of the fearsome red dragon, Dragonia. How it terrorized the village of Skendrick until a brave band of heroes answered the noble villagers' call for aid. How nothing could stop those courageous souls from facing down the dragon. How they emerged victorious and laden with treasure. But, even in a world filled with epic adventures and tales of derring-do, where dragons, goblins, and unlicensed prestidigitators run amok, legendary heroes don't always know what they're doing. Sometimes they're clueless. Sometimes beleaguered townsfolk are more hapless than helpless. And orcs? They're not always assholes, and sometimes they don't actually want to eat your children.

Heloise the Bard, Erithea's most renowned storyteller (at least, to hear her tell it), is here to set the record straight. See, it turns out adventuring isn't easy, and true heroism is as rare as an articulate villager. Having spent decades propagating this particular myth (which, incidentally, she wrote), she finally able to tell the real story - for which she just so happened to have a front-row seat. Welcome to Erithea. I hope you brought a change of undergarments - things are going to get messy.

Amazing story, audio editing leaves much to be desired

The story was a ton of fun. It absolutely doesn't take itself seriously. This could have easily been written about one of my former D&D groups where one person tries to be a Very Serious Gamer (™) while the rest of the group was mostly having fun roleplaying, exploring the world, and generally not doing the most obvious "attack everything" method of combat.

Humor was occasionally too over the top slapstick, but I did laugh out loud numerous times when it hit just right. Despite being a band of utterly unexperienced adventurers, each character was well designed to play to their own strengths despite their weaknesses. It made me like all the characters, even the gruff one, the narcissistic one, the naive one, the smelly one, the... you get the idea. They were unapologetically true to themselves, take them or leave them. I'll take them all!

The problem is w
