In the year 2186, Commander Sela Shepard activated the Crucible over planet Earth, destroying the Reaper threat to galactic life. Five years of reconstruction later, and a new threat looms on the horizon. Documents detailing the origin of the reapers and citing the technological gains discovered by Cerberus fanatics have gone missing just as a rise in political pressure from a joint alliance of Batarian, Vorcha, and Yahg threatens to disrupt Council programs to reconnect the Mass Relays which greatly facilitate galactic travel. To those with sufficient clearance to access them, these documents are known simply as... The Leviathan Files. If you enjoyed this show, please tell your friends!

An enjoyable Mass Effect d20 podcast

The Leviathan Files is a d20 actual-play podcast set in the Mass Effect universe, post trilogy. It primarily uses role playing and dice rolling, though for the most part it's the former (which works well, due to the auditory format of podcasts). The cast has great chemistry, and you can tell everyone is having fun with it. The events and actions adhere to canon decently enough so that it doesn't take you out of things (assuming you're familiar with the Mass Effect universe), and the tone is usually pretty light. The voice modifications for the players help further the roleplaying aspect, and the story hints at big things to come now that things are starting to get moving.

No ME knowledge required to enjoy!

I just finished listening to all of season one, and I don't know spit about Mass Effect, but I do know good Role Playing, and this podcast has that down cold. The cast has a great rapport that strikes the balance between hanging with your friends and participating in a greater narrative that all good RP sessions has. If you've ever rolled a d20 and have even a passing interest in Sci-Fi...or a curiosity about what cocktails inspired by Mass Effect Acutal Play Podcasts would taste like, then The Leviathan Files is your kind of poison.

A very enjoyable Actual Play Podcast

The Leviathan Files is a fantastic Actual Play podcast for several reasons. First, the cast. Taylor, Dan, Dylan, Chris, and SJ use all of their creativity to make a galaxy come alive, from cockney Krogans to axes upgradeable with apps. Second, the detail. Elements from the Mass Effect universe are pulled in all of the time and make it a very believable place. It -feels- like it's a Mass Effect game. And finally, the story. Picking up not too long after ME3 left off, a very believable plot has meandered its way through three seasons.

I can't stress enough how awesome this podcast is. And everyone who loves d20 games, Mass Effect, and/or a good time with people who will interact with you, should give it a listen.
