So much fun!

A wonderful actual-play podcast with an engaging plot, excellent role-play and characterisation from the players, and great GMing. Seeing how early throwaway comments or ideas from the players shaped the gameworld, and how the GM reacted to the players input, is really inspiring.

Inspiring storytelling

Far and away my favourite actual play podcast out there. Fantastic, immersive and engaging storytelling not just from the GM but from everyone around the table. Not content with telling an excellent tale, Ross and the DfB crew also actively encourage new players to join them and for you to do likewise, helping to grow an inclusive and supportive community.

This podcast is sufficiently inspiring that I've started my own actual play podcast, which is something I had never even considered before tuning in. Can't praise this highly enough.

Such an Amazing Podcast

Such an amazing Podcast. Ross is an inspiring GM, weaving the narative of the story he is telling around the actions of the players actions. The players are superb; bringing each character to life wonderfully for the listeners. I have been listening to the Podcast through the Dice for Brains website; but downloaded iTunes especially to leave this review so that I could convey how much I enjoy what you are all doing. Five Stars!
