In this episode, the brave survivors: encounter more hostile wildlife, regret exploring backstories, find some quest items, encounter even more hostile wildlife. Does Tam finally get what's coming to her? Will Jarwin be able to keep it in his pants? Does Ronin learn basic social etiquette? Of course not! But it is still fun to listen to.

Ep7 - Here I come and Get It

The party makes it back to base camp. Relations with the non-participating comrades are strengthened. Some more than others. The mysterious lights in the ocean are investigated. Nath "meditates"........ what more could you want? An explanation for the title? Well, listen to the episode. I'm not explaining it here where children can read it. Tweet us @bashshield when you figure it out.

Ep6 - Flights of Fantasy Island

The party encounters a trio of the local fauna. And thus begins the first of the fetch quests. How many WoW references will this inspire? Will we be able to grind boars until we all reach level 20? How great of a podcast would that be?

The party spends the episode discussing what to do now that they're all stuck on this deserted island. Tensions rise as some of the non-participating comrades seem less than helpful. Also, there is a snake.
