In the Belly of Dragons: The Legend of Scanlan Shorthalt and Vox Machina is the title of a book written by Scanlan Shorthalt.

History[]

After Vox Machina defeated Vecna in 812 PD, Scanlan used his free time to write down the epic stories of Vox Machina: from their first meeting to saving the world, and everything in-between. Writing the book was difficult for Scanlan because he is a Bard, not an author. However, he was able to rely on guidance from Ioun herself (as the Champion of Ioun) and Sprigg was even a copy editor for the book. Scanlan's goal was to finish the book by the time of his 71st birthday in 813 PD.[1]

By 843 PD, the book had been adapted into a one-man musical stage performance, called In the Belly of Dragons: The Legend of Scanlan Shorthalt and Vox Machina Musical Revue.[2]

Trivia[]

  • The title is a reference to the moment during the battle with Umbrasyl when Scanlan and Vax Dimension Doored inside the ancient black dragon.[3] Grog suggested the title "In the Anus of Dragons", mocking the attempt.[4]
