Ep 144 - Rat Queens

This Week: Who are the Rat Queens? A pack of booze-guzzling, death-dealing battle maidens-for-hire, and they're in the business of killing all god's creatures for profit. It's also a darkly comedic sass-and-sorcery series starring Hannah the Rockabilly Elven Mage, Violet the Hipster Dwarven Fighter, Dee the Atheist Human Cleric and Betty the Hippy Smidgen Thief. This modern spin on an old school genre is a violent monster-killing epic that is like Buffy meets Tank Girl in a Lord of the Rings world on crack!

Drinking Game

Language! - Every time they swear, take a drink. 

Do I make you horny, baby? Every time someone says something sexual, take a drink.

“It’s only a Flesh Wound” - Anytime an appendage is lobbed off or someone is split in half.

Betty can you hear me? - Every time you marvel at Betty’s big ears, take a drink.

That will wash out - Drink whenever the is blood shed.

At least it’s not deadpool max - If you find yourself a little bored, take a drink to cope.
