Author's Note: This article will include spoilers for Episode 2 of Dungeons and Drag Queens.

This episode began where the last one left off. The Questing Queens journey forth into the underworld. Episode 2 of Dungeons and Drag Queens shows us what the questing queens are made of by putting them in harm's way for the first time in a battle that truly matters.

Let's dive in!

The Questing Queens First Battle

So as the Questing Queens try to cross the River of Sorrow, they are confronted with some undead spirits that also wish to cross over. When they refuse to let them cross, a battle ensues!

This battle was the first time I noticed that The Questing Queens are level 5! That's incredible for a first-time play!

Gertrude using Thunder Wave was a blast, and the other queens kicking ass in their first battle was terrific. Brennan designed all of the enemies to have around 10 hp for this encounter, so it was pretty easy.

It's not until they reach the town and meet a demon they intend to trick that things heat up. But before they did, Brennan introduced a classic DM NPC.

Meeting Up With Princess's Uncle

As all of the undead are defeated, we discover one of them is Princess's uncle Kerwin. He guides the group to their next location - the town where they meet the demon they haggle with.

And also, Kerwin stays with the group as an ally. This has multiple benefits - Brennan can provide friendly advice through Kerwin as an underworld resident about where to go next.

He could also provide details about what not to do and what is favorable. If the Queens try to do something that would endanger them somehow, Kerwin could provide the insight needed about the world to prevent that.

We don't know how strong Kerwin is in a battle, but he might come in handy in the battles to come.
