This is not an episode of The Adventure Zone! We’ve got a quick trailer for The Besties, a gaming podcast featuring Justin, Griffin, and their pals (and Polygon co-founders) Chris Plante and Russ Frushtick. They’ve been doing the show for a while, but relaunched this year as a Spotify Original! You can listen and follow the show for free at Besties.fan.
Training has been going smoothly for the Thundermen. Plus, Sabour has some new and important information for them about Gray! Seems like everything is going... oh, spoke too soon! Friends become enemies. Enemies remain enemies. On top of all that, a surprise visit!
It's hard to maintain order in the court when a Demon Prince disrupts proceedings. Everyone knows that. The Thundermen have to deal with the uninvited guest and then things just get worse. Like, WAY WORSE. A perilous journey is executed. A new plan is hatched. A cat eats more jerky.
The Thundermen have been brought before an Unbroken Chain tribunal. They need to prove that they are worthy of membership or they will lose the chance to win the group's help in the upcoming war. Winning them over might be tricky, especially since the head of the tribunal is Argo's nemesis!You know what they say: If at first you don't succeed, try tribunal again! 
Thunderman, LLC continue their war efforts. After a tense run-in with the Commodore, Argo spills the beans. Then, he spills the beans about spilling the beans. The Unbroken Chain higher ups are not pleased. The boys also make contact with Rainer in hopes of winning her dad, The Undying Lord, to their cause. To top it all off, it seems the boys have some explaining to do.
Happy MaxFunDrive 2020 everyone! It's time for another The The Adventure Zone Zone! We answer a whole bunch of your questions! But the real question we answer are the friendships we make along the way!Remember, you can become a MaxFun member today by going to maximumfun.org/join!
A new day is dawning and it's time for Thunderman, LLC. to get down to business.  The boys set out to interview some potential candidates for associate positions, but not before seeking to acquire some new assets. Fitzroy makes a spectacle(s). The Firbolg hits the books. Argo is surprised by a familiar face.
It's a very special episode for week one of MaxFunDrive 2020. The Thundermen are shown what could be. We learn about crimes, both past and future. We find out more about the boys and they find out more about themselves. Much is revealed and makes things even less clear.
The Thundermen have escaped the demons and have flown to safety on the backs of their equine friends. Time for a rest and a briefing from a new ally. Seems that a rescue is in order. Stealth mode engaged!The Unknown Forest is no longer safe. The fellas have been lied to. War is on the horizon.
Having more or less successfully completed their mission with the Centaurs, the Thundermen are headed back to school. But first, a night out on the town and a few drinks with friends. What could go wrong?After stopping for the night at the tavern Springs Eternal, the fellas have an important talk with Althea Song. It is also a night of discovery with several alter ego coming to light. Plus, a Fuzzy Navel!
The Thundermen's time with the centaurs has come to a close. While Fitzroy recovers from his recent cursing, a new and present danger threatens the team.While Fitzroy buys some time, Argo takes a swing and the Firbolg changes. Maybe it could be said that everyone changes, but only time will tell.We’re donating the ad revenue from TAZ this week to the Nina Pop & Tony McDade Mental Health Funds, organized by The Okra Project, and would encourage you to consider donating as well if you can. https://www.theokraproject.com/
Fitzroy is not doing well. The curse is consuming him from the inside out. Argo does his best to comfort him. The Firbolg is on the hunt.Chaos rears its head and all hell is about to break loose.
The Thundermen work with the Centaurs to find a solution to the apple issue. They encounter a spirit and make a bad first impression. Also, they eat some road snacks.A question gets resolved. The Firbolg makes a sacrifice. Nobody trusts the wizard. It's a pretty solid day of adventuring! That is, right up until the end...
The Thundermen have headed out for another real world assignment. They also have an assignment from Higglemas that they are working on. Before they reach the centaur camp, they need to level up and deal with some new friends. Plus, a shopping trip!
On the eve of another real world mission, the Thundermen finally get the whole story.Major questions are answered, everything is on the line and dinner is ruined.
Investigator Althea Song has some questions for the Thundermen. Meanwhile, each of the fellas has their own missions.A friendship is forged in favors, allegiances are questioned and a letter is sent. Also, the Thundermen go toe to toe with an Arena Champion.
A new semester has begun and with it comes a new guests, new questions, and new mysteries.The Thundermen have moved into their new dorm. The Firbolg confides in a friend, Argo ignores hidden dangers and Fitzroy takes on a project.  Can friends be trusted? Who is this person asking question? And where did that new crepe station come from?!
The Thundermen are moving up in the world! Specifically, to the second floor of the imp filled hospital. A new friend is made and a major(?) enemy is defeated.
It's the semester break and the Thundermen are getting paid to do a little exterminating.  Birds and rats and imps, OH MY!
It's the end of the semester! The Thundermen meet with some teachers, trick a counselor and look for poison. When the sun goes down, it's party time. For some that means presents and dancing. For others, oaths and secrets. A dream turns into a nightmare and it seems a friend is missing.

I'm here two years later to give respect to Travis' unappreciated Die Hard: With a vengeance reference.

I just found this podcast recently while searching for DnD podcasts. I'm now on episode 9 of Amnesty. Amazing content gentlemen! I came for DnD but I'm really enjoying the arcs and other systems as well. Thanks for the laughs, and for giving me a huge backlog of content to hammer through, both here and on The McElroy youtube channel.

Travis might need to read up on 5e some more. I just feel like there are a lot of holes that wouldn't be there if he had read up a bit more. Elves can't even be put to sleep magically, swashbuckler snk atk rules, etc.
