In episode 4, our heroes come to the realization that they have no plan to get to shore from a moving barge. The Elvish seamen won’t stop the boat and none of the heroes can swim. In the end, 3 of the 4 party member nearly drown – but Dora saves the day and hauls out a mess of tangled bodies from the otherwise tranquil river (lactating all the while).
Other points of interest include:
- A brief debate over how fast 5 knots actually is (9km/h / 6mph)
- Micah incorrectly believes his character can leap 9 squares (18 yards)
- There is a short physics debate related to pulling and throwing
- Aaron learns the difference between fate points and hero points
A big thank you to Machinima Sound for the use of the backing track Battle of Kings!
