Patience (played by artist Jemma Salume) is cursed to be a minotaur. At the end of part 1, she’s cursed to be hero. To go questing into a castle that showed up on the edge of town. It’s the last thing she wanted. And it came with a talking sword.

Welcome to the second part of Hero’s Curse. The latest game from the Curious Accounts of Crownsgrave. An actual play podcast with only a host, a guest, and some dice. Think of it like a series of short stories all told in the same, strange city. Using a cobbled together mishmash of Dungeon World and other Powered by the Apocalypse games, we tell stories about wizards exploring haunted libraries and cursed item shops. In a city where your thoughts can make magic. Or monsters.

If you like this episode please consider reading two more of these words. How about four more? You are too kind.

If you’re hungry for more words, consider following us on twitter @crownsgrave. There we post episode updates, talk about what inspires us, or give recommendations for further listening.

This story’s guest, Jemma Salume, can be found @bisonfisticuffs. Have you seen her art? It’s jawdropping. If a picture is worth a thousand words, we have a lot of typing to do to give her work justice.

While you wait, why not listen to her interview episode? Or maybe just go take a look yourself? We’ll email it to you when we’re done!
