Episode 120 – Peter S. Beagle’s “The Last Unicorn” with special guest Brian Cortijo

Brian Cortijo joins us to discuss Peter S. Beagle’s “The Last Unicorn”, how wars affect settings, irredeemably evil Drow and Orcs, splitting a wizard’s gizzard, the melancholy themes of the film and the books, heroics as showmanship, character agency and the consequence of choice, the abundance of printed material available about the Forgotten Realms, having a mythical creature in your adventuring party, games that are more “story forward”, game systems and their reliance on dependability, weeping spiders, and much more!
