“It is dull, Son of Adam, to drink without eating,” said the Queen presently. “What would you like best to eat?”
“The roasted corpse of my enemies. Or, failing that, Turkish Delight, please, your Majesty,” said Chimera.
-From C.S. Lewis’ lesser known novel ‘The Lion, the Goat and the Dragon’
The Chimera is one of the most famous monsters from Greek mythology and that means Alex recognized it right away. So this week, instead of diving straight into the D&D lore, Alex gives us a little lesson in mythology.
Then, get this: it turns out chimeras are a real actual thing that exists in the world. Our world. Like, the world that you’re sitting and reading this sentence in. So Alex tells us a little bit about the science behind real life chimeras.
After that, Kyle talks about the D&D version of the creature, which is pretty cool. But after learning about the real life chimera, it honestly seems a little silly.
Anyway, check out the episode and help us decide if it’s a friend or a fiend.
