One of the best narrative-first real-play podcasts around

I’ve been listening to Brute Force since the rough and tumble Dungeon World days, and the quality of both the acting/roleplaying and storytelling from Adam, Carly, Pat, John, and eventually Ray has been both supremely enjoyable to listen to and impressive to note as their story has grown and spiraled out of control. At this point I’m not even sure where the story is going anymore and every new episode is the highlight of my day, week, and year.

If you want to listen to an involving story with tons of funny goofs, great story moments, and a talking dog with a weirdly Bronx-y accent, this is the podcast you should look to first before seeking medical attention. There’s a short list of podcasts that I hold close to my heart and would re-listen to on a whim, and Brute Force is easily in the top 3 of those. I will probably become inconsolable when this storyline reaches its eventual conclusion, and then I will most likely sue all five parties involved in its creation for emotional damages and distress.

Also, just as a side note, the banter between Ray and Pat kills me every time and I honestly don’t know how you all are able to even get through an episode with both of them at the same session.

Like gaming with your besties

I love this show; every time a new episode comes out I get so excited because it feels like I’m hanging out with my best friends… except these characters get into way more trouble than my friends. The story is compelling and the characters are fun! Keep up the good work and pie ya later!
Side question for Adam Bash, will Mirka the Yeti ever be back to make a guest appearance?

Welcome to the 🙅🏻‍♂️🚫NO YIFF ZONE🚫🙅🏻‍♂️

Are you tired of listening to Dungeons & Dragons podcasts that BASICALLY require an advanced Calculus degree to keep up with all the math? Did you ever want to hear what happens when a bird immolates a person? Well, oh boy howdy, is this the podcast for you! Listen as a vampire, kitsune, mummy, and reverse mereperson traverse a land where sporks no longer exist, stick’ums no longer stick, and magic done broke (unless you’re starting with episode 1, then see bird immolation above, back when the gods were still dead lol), while being more or less forced to save the world (again) from vampiric financial advisors and regular vampires (who I assume are not as good at math but are good at other things like maybe cooking?) and more (I just can’t think of anything else right now, maybe carnies if you count Hollis’ origin story?). Heck, even my boyfriend, who is sometimes forced to listen to random episodes with no context, fully enjoys the shenanigans that they get up to, so consider this a TEN STAR REVIEW! And if the jokes and references here are going over your head, stoat worry about it, just hit the play button and soon all will be clear. Oh and the best part? Remember all that math talk? Yeah, there’s a horse for that.

Crust ya hams on the flippy flop.

(Are we still doing the voice thing? Cause I think we need to hear from Carol 👀)
