    The Reviews. Episode 5 – Wildermyth

    The Reviews. Episode 5 – Wildermyth

    https://therpgacademy.com/wp-content/uploads/2020/01/The-Reviews-Wildermyth.mp3







    Hello and welcome to the 5th episode of our 'The Review' series, this is our 1st review of a non tabletop RPG. This Review is for Wildermyth a turn based strategy RPG game from Worldwalker games.



    Wildermyth is a character-driven, procedurally-generated tactical RPG for the PC. Start with a small band of farmers—full of personality, but lacking in experience—and turn them into unique, legendary heroes.



    Your party will defend the Yondering Lands from various threats, alternating between turn-based combat and strategic decisions on the overland map. Over time, your heroes will uncover the secrets of the land through comic-strip-style events, presenting them with choices that can change their appearance, personalities, relationships, and abilities. And victory (or death, whichever comes first) isn’t the end. Heroes go into your “Legacy,” and can show up in future playthroughs. Over the course of several stories, your legacy heroes grow into larger-than-life myths.



    Overal Rating from us: B+. solid fun, high re-playability with interesting character choices.



    Wildermyth is current available on Steam as an Early Access game for $19.99

Customer Reviews

Tigrannasaurus ,

Fantastic resource.

Well structured, well thought through, good guests, good audio quality. More than that though it has real heart and comes from an authentic place that resonates with me as a listener.

A great resource for DM's of any skill level.

And remember: if you're having fun you're doing it right.

😃👍

BlakeRyan74 ,

Enthusiastic cast, Enjoyable content.

These folks enjoy the stories they present via their games and you will enjoy listening to the rich tapestry of tales they present. Each episode has good audio quality and provides a great perspective on each games setting and style. Enjoyable even for non gamers, do yourself a treat and subscribe.
