One of my favorite podcasts!

this podcast is genuinely one of my absolute favorite ttrpg podcasts, and my favorite MotW podcast!! the characters are amazing, the players and gm have a vast knowledge of cryptids and respect for the cultures that explore cryptozoology, and a super fun dynamic! Please listen to this if you get a chance. its a rough start, not gonna lie (i recommend listening without earbuds if possible), but the farther u progress, the more u fall in love with the characters and players. :D

I love this show

I discovered A Horror Borealis by listening to One Shot and Alex was a guest on the show, so I dipped over to check it out and I'm glad I did. I absolutely love AHB. The characters are great, the mysteries are fun, the tone is light (usually), and Alex creates a safe space for everyone to play in.

But I think the thing I like most about the show is that it's not super polished and doesn't sound heavily edited. Conversations, jokes, and tomfoolery are left in, and I always find myself laughing whenever I listen. This podcast really just sounds like a group of friends sitting around the table, playing games, making jokes, and having fun.

I also love how invested in the NPCs the players are, especially Addison. It helps bring the NPCs and the town to life when players buy in that much.

I'm currently on Episode 52 and I can't wait to hear more.

Fun cryptid content and a compelling story!

I love AHB and I look forward to every episode! You get characters that are so precious that you want to jump into revenant and shield them from everything. Also, a completely queer space which we all need.
