Cover art for podcast Sidequesting

Sidequesting is a fantasy podcast about avoiding the main plot. It follows Rion, an adventurer who’s willing to help just about anyone out - as long as they’re not being asked to deal with the scary wizard everyone keeps talking about.


2.7: Trial By Fire

Rion and Castor meet a mysterious stranger. Content Warning: Fire.

This episode is a crossover with Inn Between! It gets a little bit more tense than Sidequesting episodes usually go, but I promise everything will be fine.
