Episode 5: Dicey Decisions

Blister reaches the docks and gathers details about his assignment from Madam Putreska. He must rescue a Siberian bear shipped to Blaakrust and sold on the black market to a cruel whip-cracker. Blister then discovers Muck entangled with a gang of gambling bilge rats and their gargantuan leader, Bile.

Credits: Special thanks to composer Roland Rudzitis for serving up the Blister and Muck theme song. Additional music from John Bartmann and Monplaisir.

And for the curious, here are sources for the animal stories mentioned in the introduction:
