Episode 174: Ship Of Fools by David Farland (Part 1)

Ship of Fools

David Farland brings us the tale of a group of jesters; Erstwhyle, Baron Blunder, and Amilee; making a long journey to the dark and forbidding Castle Crydon to compete in a contest of fools that could fetch them a purse of 1,000 guldars. Could they possibly win? And if they win, might they still lose?

Afterward, Rish and Big surprisingly talk very little, but after all it’s only the end of part one, they’ll surely gabble on for hours after part two, so if you like that sort of thing, fear not.

Special thanks to Renee Chambliss, Graeme Dunlop and Ben Gifford for lending their voices to the story.

    I like it much. This is very different from the 2 pieces I know of his. Neither the hard SF novel with corporate samurai warriors and South American Rebels: On My Way to Paradise or the short story about Martians and artic trappers: After a Lean Winter has a singing hopping Satyr; probably the only thing either of those outstanding stories required to become immortal. So glad this has been corrected here and will become an Icon alongside What’s Opera Doc.

    When is part 2? I’m going to forget everything about part 1. :/

    • Yeah, sorry, that’s all on me. I had to edit the second half, do the sound mix, find a way to get together with big to do the episode part, edit that, and polish my resignation announcement. Hopefully soon.

        He can always listen to part one several times a day if necessary. I know how it is I am very old.

      • Thanks for the update. Normally I like rare podcasts because they’re more special and less time consuming.

        If you resign (perish the thought) the announcement had better be dirty, not polished. Full of swearing about how awful those anon commenters are, and such.

        Maybe a refresher in the intro? (Yep, super old here too.)
