The Zoo of Worlds, part 4

Juggalo Hobbits and Mutations, Oh My!

This is a scenario dreamed up by Arthur, there are no spoilers here, so listen away as you please. As always, be aware that the podcast is not really family-friendly, if that sort of thing bothers you.

Some episodes feature teasers for upcoming actual plays, after the closing music. Just so you know.

Episode 4

The Episode

I should probably explain that Juggalo Hobbits are one of our D&D in-jokes. We tend to treat hobbits and halflings as being vaguely suspicious (which, in fairness, the canon supports by making them the Thief Race), and ended up with a gang of chaotically-inclined hobbit bandits, which naturally ended up as sinister clown hobbits, which naturally ended up as Juggalo hobbits.

The ending scene was delightfully silly, especially with the mutations chart. It also allowed us to indulge some tactical tendencies, by working out how to mix-and-match various abilities to obliterate the demon most effectively. And I loved Arthur's final spin on the petition to heaven!
