The third episode of Dungeons and Drag Queens is choke full of action. Our queens cover a lot of ground and meet many people on their quest to the tower where Thanara awaits.

After they've been unsuccessful in getting the soul they needed in the last episode, the queens are in a pickle. Should they follow in Shalilah's footsteps or seek some other solution?

Let's dive right into it!

Going Back to The Crime Scene

After debating whether to ambush Shalilah or go back to Nyruth to ask for a soul, the group makes the terrifying decision to return to the crime scene, where they tried to steal from a demon.

This was the moment when this season's vibes shined. Players new to D&D work with whatever is given to them by the DM. This is the world they know. But an experienced player would have opted out to find a different solution invoking some more worldbuilding from the DM.

Returning to the site where you made enemies automatically starts a battle, even in video games. Nyruth should have entered Initiative the moment he saw the group.

What Gertrude did next was truly outstanding.

Honesty Worked Out

So, as far as I know, you can't use Detect Thoughts to broadcast your own thoughts. But Brennan is a rule of cool DM, resulting in one of the best moments of this season.

Gertrude hits a Nat 20 on Persuasion and manages to convince Nyruth to help the group on their hunt for Thanara's boons. Aside from giving them a soul by trading the corrupted clasp, he also gives them a flying carpet for the promise of getting Gertrude's immortality curse if it's ever lifted.

The carpet brings them to Shalilah in a matter of minutes.
