# Carrots and Suffering: A D&D Odyssey

**An actual (let's) play unofficial D&D campaign podcast featuring 5th edition Dungeons and Dragons, by a group of friends from Portland Oregon**

Campaign 1: The ancient kingdom of Fenrir, blessed with prosperity from the queen of fairy for a millennia, has fallen. The once bountiful forests are teeming now with thorns and monsters. Each prick of the brambles poison turns man into beast, one drop at a time. Our heroes, 18 year old Sylpha Lunari, 16 year old Sable Mirkwood, and 17 year old Jaelen Evans fight to end the century of isolation and the ill effects on man and fey that that is has. Can they change the world they inherited, or will it change them?

Campaign 2: The Northern Kingdom, the Empire of Astragaar, a theocracy dedicated to the true and only 10 gods of the mortal lands has taken over the province of Ol' Fenrir after the environmental disaster of the kingdom. Our heroes, Zirus of Sister Truth, Bulain of The Silent Judge, and Krieden of Divine Mercy, attempt to serve the empire and its people, but all is not as one would hope. Will the history of the empire be too much for the faithful to overcome?

Notes: All the curse words; English language; Medium level of mechanical adherence; Once or twice a month posting.

Season 2: So good!!

I started with season two and I’m up to episode nine. Absolutely loving everything about it! It’s funny and engrossing and I really want to play with Nate as my DM! He hits just the right notes of creativity and structure. I plan to go back and listen to season one as soon as I’m done with this campaign.

Atentive Listener ,

Master Class D&D Podcast

Nate’s wonderfully original world concentrates role play with great intrigue and mystery. Tight editing that eliminates noise and side chatter keeping the episodes to 1 hour. Great characters joyfully played with fantastic interactions with each other and numerous npcs. Early episodes slowly introduce the characters and the world they live in. Overtime, the tension mounts, leaving me eagerly awaiting each new episode. Overall a master class d&d podcast. Over the course of the last year this all of the elements of this podcast and story have gotten better and better. Congratulations on reaching the one year mark. With season two and cast charges this show has not lost its touch and continues to be great.
