Simple and great.

This is a really great podcast. Father and son play Ironsworn together. The creative back and forth is great to hear and it gives anyone wondering how to play a GM-less game plenty of tips and tricks. I think it is especially helpful for those looking to do a solo campaign. The story unfolds very organically and it never feels like they overly push the bounds of the world they created. I only wish it came out more often!

Look no further

If you’re looking for a how-to live play, this is it. The creator of the system and his son do a great job of explaining while they weave an entertaining story.

the GM-less game really lends itself to this format.

Immersive

I love this show and the fact it is father and son makes it that much more enjoyable. The story is immersive and it really paints a picture of what is happening. Maybe I’m crazy but as I’m listening, it’s almost like watching a movie.
