"Ordeal of Purphoros" is the seventh episode of the fourth season of The Broken Pact. This episode aired live on April 5, 2021 on the Saving Throw Twitch channel and The Fantasy Network, and is archived on the YouTube channel.
After a few days travel, the Pact make it to Mount Velus, where they find both Makkal, a minotaur, and Purphoros, the god of the forge. As the Pact tells Purphoros of their mission, a drake steals the bident of Thassa that Purphoros was working on, and takes it as an offering to the dragon Thraxes. Purphoros sends the Pact and Makkal to retrieve the bident, and they are successful, but only after a prolonged battle with Thraxes, who ends up drowning in magma at the hands of Astorok. Once they return the bident to Purphoros, he gives the Pact his blessing to carry out the mission to save Theros, and gives each member their own parting gift. Sapheia is also instructed to personally return the bident to Thassa. The episode concludes with Astorok giving Makkal his wormtooth necklace, alluding to a possible familial between them, as earlier in the episode, it was revealed that both Astorok and Makkal have a father called Astorok.
