Perhaps the Best
This may be the best Dice Masters Podcast out there. The comedic bits combined with insightful commentary and Shadowmeld’s unique and cheap teams to acquire and build make this podcast a must listen; it goes to the top of my queue every time it comes out.
Fun to be had!
I love that these two seem to have so much fun with this. I enjoy listening to them carry on while still dropping DM knowledge in our ears!
Well needed BAC review
I appreciate y'all reviewing the Basic Action Cards. I have a tendency to find a few that I like and do not review all my others even when my teams change. Great job! Maybe add a segment to review 1 or 2 BACs weekly?
