Episode #169: The Wizards of The Thirteenth Hour and The Case of the Grandmotherly Ghost 3


My brother and I recently stated a new Dungeons and Dragons campaign that he created set in the world of The Thirteenth Hour.  Today’s episode on the show as well as part of the campaign involves the wizards in The Thirteenth Hour. There are three in the book, and there was a guest appearance during the last D and D campaign as well (The Case of the Almost Assassination). I read from a few sections of The Thirteenth Hour that describe the wizards and discuss some of their influences.

Basically, I envisioned the wizards as being a combination of the following:


Burgess Meredith from the Rocky movies, the Batman TV series, and Grumpier Old Men


Speaking of which, Jack Lemmon and Walter Matheau as Grumpy Old Men


Dan O’Herlihy as Grig and Robert Preston as Centauri from The Last Starfighter


Merlin from Sword in the Stone

Between Two Worlds, the synth EP follow up to Long Ago Not So Far Away is now out for streaming on Bandcamp.  

The bonus track, called “Flight of the Cloudrider” has a 80s movie mashup music video (see if you can identify all the movies!) which is available on youtube.   This app was largely created with the iphone app Auxy.
