After our Twitter poll on Old Men in Dragon Quest, we had to do an episode on it. Not just because the results were fun to see, but also because of how adamant the DQ community was about what age one has to be to be an old man, how we did Borya dirty, and just some general Mervyn love/hate.

Over the course of our discussion, we touch on Borya, Ragnar McRyan, King Trode, Morrie, Mervyn (Melvin?), and Rab. In the end, we talk a lot about the archetype of the wizened old man, as well as how much actual age plays into that role. We ended up having one of the most fun episodes we've recorded because of this, so we thank you for the responses to the poll and the discussion you sparked — both in the comments and between us. 

We're sure you'll have more to say after you listen, so make sure to hit us up on Twitter at @dragonquestfm or individually at @dragonquaustin and @professorbeej.

In another fun note, all of our Patreon subscribers will also get a new perk: through the end of the year, all DQFM patrons will receive a copy of the new Geek to Geek digital magazine PRESS START as a part of their membership. It just launched this week, and patrons can read the first issue RIGHT NOW!
