MCP 005 – The Muse, Part 2 of 2

Callie and Will have escaped the trap set for them by the conjurer Trajan, retreating to Will’s apartment to rest and regroup. But how long will any place remain safe when our heroes are the only thing standing between a dark wizard and his mad quest for revenge?

Author’s Note:

Some listeners may recognize that Artax bears a remarkable resemblance to a certain other Old Man – namely, the wizard who runs the magic shop in the Spells ‘R’ Us shared story universe, created by Bill Hart. This resemblance is, of course, completely intentional. I conceived of Artax as an homage to Bill’s original vision for the Old Man, before some subsequent writers turned him into a cruel and sadistic monster hell-bent on destroying as many lives as possible. In any case, only the greatest respect is intended to Bill and his creations; he gets all the credit for creating such a fun and engaging character, and if Artax deviates in any way from how Bill would have wanted his character portrayed, the responsibility is mine alone.

Next time on the Metamor City Podcast:

Students are dying at St. Theresa’s, a school and halfway house for wayward girls on the Street of Metamor City. Abbey Preston is visiting the school, seeking relief from the terrifying visions that have been plaguing her. Is something supernatural at work, or is it all in Abbey’s head?
