Riddles in the Dark Year 3, Phase 2, Episode 3.07: The Siege,Laketown View

May 3rd, 2014

Episode 252 of 322 episodes

Our hosts were very talkative in this episode, starting with a rant about the new name for Hobbit Movie 3, then moving on to considering how the Siege of Erebor might look from the Laketown side of the table. And Corey got to use "abscond" in a sentence, which pleased him no end.
