THG Ep7: Stop! Trauma Time
CW: Body horror The heroes are still trapped in the wizard's tower, but it's about to take a turn as they come face to face with said wizard. Or rather, the wizard's corpse. Hopefully Zander's not too scarred and the heroes can survive this encounter. They still have to beat the rest of Round 3 after all!   @taletoppod @taletoppod @talesfromthetablepod @talesfromthetable   Synopsis Zander's wild magic pops up and he floats up to the next floor of the tower, with Clank and Anathae following behind. Upon arriving on the second floor, Anathae discovers the source of the burning smell Clank noticed last episode. It's a beaker spilling over with some kind of liquid in the lab of the second floor. With further investigation Anathae discovers a journal detailing the decline of Zander's master. Zander then makes the discovery of his master's corpse on the third and final floor. The corpse awakens when Anathae and Clank arrive, immediately targeting the heroes for a fight. Clank manages to summon the Lich master's deepest fear, death, and the heroes manage to escape back down to the first floor. They try once again to crack the lock on the door with little success only to have the Lich master break free of Clank's spell and make his way down to the first floor with them. After some fighting, Clank and Anathae managed to chop of the Lich master's hand and Clank uses it to break the seal on the door. This solves the puzzle while also destroying the Lich master. Zander destroys the treasure chest reward before the heroes move on to the next challenge in the Gauntlet. They're greeted by Faux in the coliseum, and then Zander launches a fireball at Faux.
