    S3I2- Towers And Canals, part 2

    Once long ago there was a city, the capital of a grand empire. Now there is a ruin of shattered rock, home to ogres and crows. How did this great metropolis fall? To find out, we put together a team quite apart from The Hawks to turn a Microscope on that period of history, this is the second part of this game. It doesn't come to a grand conclusion because history isn't like this, but hopefully it will provide an enjoyable ramble through the past.

Drama, hilarity and so many puns!

I love this podcast. It is all the best bits of sitting in a room with mates who are witty, sarcastic and so good at puns! The setting is a well crafted fantasy world, our heroes have multi-layered personalities and when plot and characters collide, it inevitably never goes according to plan. Over three seasons they've uncovered a compelling world and have a mission that I actually care about - I've no idea how they're going to achieve it and have some doubts that they can but I am with them all the way!

I thoroughly recommend this podcast and that you start from the start to follow the characters through their journey. I haven't said anything about the plot because I don't want to spoil anything. I hope you enjoy as much as I have!

Hilarious listening

I love the world the GM builds, so great.

It's ridiculous and clever and funny. Mexican dwarves, chuckle brother references and hilarious comedy between the characters.

The season 2 interlude is brilliant. Deedee becomes amazing!
Some slightly ropey sound early on - but worth sticking with it!

Word salad can be an intimidating feast

If you're jumping in at the start of season 2, as I was off the back of a recommendation from a friend, the intro can be somewhat overwhelming. More than a few fantasy names i'm not familiar with and my brain usually shuts down. You know how it is.

But if you push past the recap style intro, the hard-to-follow-because-I-don't-know-the-world-yet feeling dissipates and you're brought right intothe thick of the story as it quickly introduces a wide range of characters that are genuinely enjoyable. Be aware though. The crude in crudely drawn swords is the only warning you get about the humour ;]
