The story: Spanning both our world and the shared fantasy realm of the tabletop role-playing game they enjoy, The Ordinary Epic tells the tale of a group of friends and their fictional counterparts, with reclusive Athena as the narrator and all other characters of the fantasy world she created, mercurial Emo as the half-orc berserker Thack, stickler Dominic as the elven mage Caelus, shy Daniel as the quick-witted rogue Merrick, and earnest Marcus as the healer and priest Benedict. While in game the gang pursues dangerous artifacts that could spell disaster for all; the people at the table have their own turmoil to contend with as matters of the personal, professional, and heart come head to head. What can they save before everything falls apart?
Content warnings: The Ordinary Epic contains depictions of fantasy violence, including combat, mortal harm, and bodily injury as well as some cursing and adult themes. Listener discretion is advised.
