81 Hippogriff

Hippogriffs are an oddity in that we can pin down their exact origins from our cultural lore which is in stark contrast to their D&D origins where they are lost to time. Yet another chimeric creature and by all accounts a hell of a mount. Listen in this week as we explore their origins from Ludovico Ariosto and his epic Orlando Furioso.

Oh, and we of course touch on Buckbeak.
