Season 6, Episode 03: Jewels in the Forest

Fafhrd and the Gray Mouser, by Tom Kidd

Hello, Cromrades! The new year is well underway, and we hope 2018 is treating you kindly thus far! And, we hope you are still in the holiday spirit, as we recorded this episode just before Christmas! Gather your treasure hunting effects and prepare for a journey! We have a scroll which contains a riddle to solve, and we believe it will lead us to riches beyond our wildest dreams! Join us as we accompany Fafhrd and The Gray Mouser on a search for Jewels in the Forest, and delve further into the life of Fritz Leiber! A full text of this story is difficult to find online, but you can read it in Swords Against Death (Amazon, AbeBooks).

One Things
Jon: X-Men: The Animated Series, and to a lesser extent DeWalt Cordless Drills, sponsor of our newest show segment, "Whatcha Been Drillin'?" (An Obvious Fabrication!)

Luke: The anthology Echoes of Valor 3 edited by Karl Edward Wagner. Full of pulpy sword and sorcery! Check it out!
