Magic of Eyri 023-An Odd Duck

Wednesday, April 21st, 2010

Today’s episode: Our Heroes are taken by Mudd the duck to meet his cousin, Alexander the Small,  captain of the ship The Griffin. Mudd claims Alexander will take the party to Dragons Well, but upon meeting the short captain, Steve and the others realize there is something not quite right about him. For starters, he wears an iron pot on his head.

Next Time on The Magic of Eyri (05.19.10): “Flight of the Griffin” –  Alexander tells our heroes of the Pixie People and what makes his ship unique.

Ramblings:

This episode, like the last one, features a tip of the hat to the “Everyone? Everyone!” scene in the film The Professional. We are introduced to one of my favorite characters, Alexander the Small (who’s name is an obvious play on Alexander the Great). Despite being small in height, Alexander is a larger than life character, and was always fun to write.

A bit of trivia, the name of the ship, The Griffin, comes from something I read once about a ship named The Griffin being one of the first “ghost ships” on the Great Lakes. Sadly,  I haven’t been able to find that website/article since I wrote the novel, but that’s fine. The ship is not named after Family Guy.

Magic of Eyri 022-Duck and Cover

Wednesday, April 7th, 2010

Today’s episode: Our Heroes arrive in Tal, the duck port town. Once at Tal, they run into an old friend–Mudd the duck. Mudd takes the party to the Lighthouse Inn, a large lighthouse located in Tal’s bay that doubles as an Inn. Back at the Hawk King’s castle, Fiach-Ra learns of a way he can bypass the blue heron amulet protecting Steve, thanks to Rarlup, the Elder Mystic of Zuu. Fiach-Ra gives his second-in-command, U’nala, a chariot pulled by two flying Pyrix to aid in his search for The Boy. The Hawk King also makes U’nala take the bumbling gate guards, Remmit and Kaz, with him.

In our last episode: Istrio scolds Steve and tells the boy that his not doing as he was told led to the destruction of Uth, the Last Human Village (since renamed to The Village Formally Known as Uth, the Last Human Village). The blue heron mystic tells Steve he must find passage to Dragons Well and Istrio gives Zeroth a talking silver swordfish named Gladius.

Next Time on The Magic of Eyri (04.21.10): “An Odd Duck” – Our heroes meet the duck captain who will take them to Dragons Well: Alexander the Small.

Ramblings:

This one has a few references/jokes I enjoyed. The first is the joke about the Lighthouse Inn inspiring sea shanties, ‘the very popular “The Light That Never Goes Out”’ (the name of  a Smiths song) and ‘the not very popular “Show Me the Way”‘ (a Peter Frampton song).

The other joke is the “Everyone?” “EVERYONE!” exchange between U’nala and Fiach-Ra, which references a similar scene in the film The Professional.
