Customer Reviews

This is a great new D&D actual play

Each episode opens with a cute musical bumper that sets the tone for the show, then quickly transition to intro banter. The banter includes game critiques, dming tips, and general fun from previous sessions. DM Addie is very proficient at running her table of players, who are strong actor-styled players. This is a decently produced, thoughtful, and entertaining new podcast. Can't wait for more to come.

Story, humor, tips

I hunted around after TAZ Balance, and I settled on Essential NPCs so hard I became a Patreon supporter. Story comes first here — everyone embodies their character and looks for ways to support the narrative, and if they talk a lot about dice rolls and mechanics during play that seems to be mostly edited out to limit distraction. However, next episode the pre-game chatter dives behind the scenes to explore how and why the GM made the scenes work. Addie is so super as GM that I’ve been working through only her series, but I’ll give the other guys a chance soon! I also keep getting charmed by new players as they join the table — apparently Chicago gaming stores must be full of voice actors who do improv comedy. Thanks for sharing this delightful podcast!

One of my Favorites

I started listening to this pod off of a random recommendation online. It was the 2nd series where they play Shadowrun, which I was just trying to run with my home table. The cast had great chemistry, and the GM was confident and always seemed to be having a great time. I’ve been listening since. Great crew, super cute, and I always learn a little in each opening segment where they talk about gaming before the episode.
