To borrow a pun, pretty "AoS-ome".
Finally, the most anticipated podcast of the century is here. Forget about Serial season 2, the real hard-hitting investigational journalism is coming straight to your ear holes courtesy of the boys from the 2 W's - Wisconsin and Wales.
They said Age of Sigmar wasn't sexy. They said Age of Sigmar didn't have bite. Yeah, well I've got news for them and you: The Mortal Realms is here to prove that AoS has more sexy and more bite than even Edward Cullen. And the similarities don't stop there, my friends - our hosts also shimmer in the daylight so loud you can hear it through the mics and also are a big hit with middle aged ladies that are all way too old to be into this stuff in the first place.
Enough about them. Let's talk about you. Look, I know you want to learn more about AoS. You're worried about the state of Warhammer, everything seems to have fallen apart, and you want to figure out where you stand. The models are great. The game is simple. But you're still not sure. Hey, I know you're a busy dude or lady. I know you've been killing yourself out there in the "rat race". But I also know you need to take some time for yourself to stay sane. Doctor's orders. Guess what, I've got just the thing - this here podcast. Still concerned about where you stand? Look up, you're standing arm in arm with the Mortal Realms, and everything is going to be ok. You're safe here.
To put it another way, the podcast is pretty good, and honestly with many others dropping out of the game there's not much else to listen to anyways. You could do much worse.
An Early Champion for AoS
Absolutely one of the best narrative-oriented AoS podcasts. Shortly after Age of Sigmar was released, Eric and Davy created one of the first, new podcasts on the scene, which was especially significant given there were so many negative voices online panning the new game, often without even thoughtfully trying it. They have been positive and inclusive from the beginning, and have gone on to create amazing projects like the Mortal Realms Tokens and the upcoming (as of this review) Coalescence global narrative event to take AoS narrative play to the next level. They’ve been rockstar community champions, and continue to produce an outstanding show.
Wish there was more
An excellent podcast to put on while delving into the hobby. The hosts have a good grasp of the world, and it is nice hearing their backgrounds and the like coming from 8th edition. Gives a good hobby store atmosphere while working at home.
Has really helped me and a buddy of mine put the story behind some of the faces, and get us more interested in the plotline, after the sobering of the destruction of the world-that-was.
