Episode Sixty Eight – The All-Singing, All-Dancing, Musical Dungeon Crawl!

The All-Singing, All-Dancing, Musical Dungeon Crawl

Players in a room escape game find that they’ve been wildly more successful than they expected, and have escaped from the modern world into a realm of medieval fantasy.

The BEST sort of dungeon to hide your treasure in is one that’s always nearby, so if it’s hidden inside a song, all you really need to access it is a lute & the words. Anyone could do it. Of course, that just gets you through the door; You still have to sing, dance, and orate your way through the story, and unlike the composer, you don’t know the words.
