Listening to the guy in the locker, I’m pretty sure this is the Davik Kang voice actor again.
This part of the game is a meandering slog with lots of backtracking. So Rutskarn decided to run a 2nd Edition D&D game DURING the show. The dice delivered to us three completely unremarkable peasants during character creation, and then things went downhill.
I don’t want to spoil the adventure, but we will indeed face deadly danger, while making no discernible progress on the adventure Rutskarn devised for us. Indeed, the quest hook itself was nearly too challenging for us, and it involved little more than sitting in chairs and talking.
