Great New D&D Podcast!!
I was pleasantly surprised to see a D&D pilot pop up on TOAFN channel. Awesome content with a good mix of story and both in and out of game humor. I can't wait to see where this goes. Congrats guys on the new podcast!
Can't wait for more!
Disclaimer: I know some of the guys who work on this show. That said, the players have great rapport and a Curse of Strahd campaign the players weren't expecting is a fantastic hook. Very excited to see where this series goes!
These guys are hilarious and very fun to listen to! If you're not listening, make it happen!
They're very cool guys in real life too. They're currently running The Curse of Strahd, which is super fun to listen as they make their spooky way through. Take a listen! Thanks for your show guys.
