It was a simple job: Pick up a crate of cargo on Tatooine, take it to Nar Shadaa, and get paid. What they didn’t expect was that the cargo would be a heavily sedated Krayt dragon, a creature capable of tearing up a crew of ne’er-do-wells and misfits just as easily as a Wookie could rip the arms off a droid. They also didn’t plan on arriving on The Smuggler’s Moon to find their patron’s tower in ruins, and completely deserted to boot. Now, this unlucky crew will have to figure out what happened to their patron so that they can unload their dangerous cargo before it wakes up and tears them to shreds. Can they negotiate the grimy underworld of a lawless moon to learn the truth? Listen to find out!

In this week’s episode, Cecil receives punishment for the demerits that his residents earned him in the last game. Dr. Davenfirth [sic] arranges for him to become the first member of the Candlewick Young Entrepreneurs’ Club, a new organization dedicated to selling leather-bound encyclopedias. When Enoch, Jareth and Dotty get involved, they do their best to help Cecil unload the hefty volumes on unsuspecting Candlewick servants. Meanwhile, Duncan explores the new relationship he’s discovered with Pricilla Petty. Can Cecil, Dotty, Enoch and Jareth sell five complete sets of Rutlidge Encyclopedias? Will Pricilla set down the enormous chip on her shoulder and embrace Duncan as a family member? And, most important of all, why does everyone always have to congregate in the bathroom while Karl is trying to go? Listen in to find out!
With the tribe of savage ogres defeated and bound to their service, the brave heroes of Nettle turn their attention to more pressing matters. If they want to un-dam the river, restoring water to their parched hometown, they’ll have to negotiate terms with the council of nature spirits responsible for the drought. In addition, they’ll have their first encounter with one of the other perils plaguing the area since the notorious chili cook-off: an infestation of spicy ground beef golems, both with beans and without. Can they overcome the fearsome creations of Kneel the Chili-mancer, broker a peace with a trio of flirtatious dryads and (eventually) save Nettle from certain doom? Listen to find out!
The Triple-F once again takes to the streets of Apex City to commit dastardly deeds, fearsome felonies—et cetera, et cetera. In this week’s episode, they attempt to pull their first ever bank heist in order to pay their dues to Dr. Monstrosity, but despite their “careful planning,” unforeseen elements steer the job towards certain disaster. The bank vault isn’t nearly as intruder-friendly as they would have assumed, leaving the insubstantial Howlicide to stumble around in the dark while the rest of the gang makes a scene. In addition, it seems that a state-sponsored superhero has been monitoring the group and targeted the bank as a prime location to interfere with their plans, a hero collaborating with one of the Triple-F’s former allies, Schadenfreude. Can the Fear Force Five defeat the meddling do-gooders, collect the cash, and restore their image as the premier villain squad of Apex City? And what of the lingering promises that some of the Hellbinders have made to their demons, but never fulfilled? Listen in to find out!
