If you like bad puns, weird worlds, and/or roleplaying games, this is the podcast for you! Will Mayer, Aimee Mayer, Mike Glass, Sam Housman, Ivelisse Housman, and occasional guest players get together and play D&D in a homebrew campaign created just for the podcast.
D8 Night: an actual play D&D Podcast where our heroes save Volyanaya, one bad decision at a time. Explore a world in turmoil, on the cusp of a new age, and with only our heroes to save it — after completing other important side quests concerning pie espionage, Japanese style game shows, and out of body journeys into one crucial goat’s inner space!
Our heroes are in for a journey that spans the globe of Volyanya; a world of magic, unexplored fey lands, blighted jungles, and fantasy anachronisms from horizon to horizon.
Can they survive battles with monsters, poorly designed traps, thinly veiled pop-culture references, an inordinate amount of corn related magic items, and encounters with hundreds of NPCs who all sound vaguely familiar?
There’s only one way to find out.
Potato Crew Prequel: Episode 25 – Purple Rain
AKA: Sky Kraken and the World of Tomorrow.
Potato Crew Prequel: Episode 24 – The Memory Remains
But the Memory Remains
Heavy smoke and heavy hearts
Another flame does its part
See the manic crowd, in exaltation as they choke
The burning brimstone grows
Hides and swallows Caerrun whole
Singeing blaze of an eldritch god already woke
But the Memory Remains
Heavy smoke holds many ghosts
In streets of Caerrun’s spokes
While the Jester’s song makes you remember
And the pain goes on and on
As the Jester sings her song
Ash to ash
Dust to Dust
Flame to Ember
Dance Little Potatoes
Potato Crew Prequel: Episode 23 – Human
We did our best to run
When the horde came through the gate
Around the walls of no surrender
They came, on and on
Don’t blame us if we get nervous
When Thüt Opens a Door
Cut the Cord
Are they Human?
Or are they Ichor?
The ick is slick
The goo is black
And we’re in the thick
And it’s getting thicker
Are they Human
Or are they ichor?
Potato Crew Prequel: Episode 22 – Other Side of the Gray
Wellby, Maryna, and Callum have serious conversations during the dusk before waking Thüt and making their final trek to Caerrun. But, when they arrive they discover a desperate scene that makes them fear they may be too late.
Potato Crew Prequel: Episode 21 – The Butler Did It
Wellby, Maryna, and Thüt make their escape from the inferno that is the estate of Lord Montross. However, when they do get outside, they are met with much more resistance than they expected.
Potato Crew Prequel: Episode 20 – Carriages and Kings
The goliath and the carriage horse
Were walking cross the land
The road was wide from side to side
And the horse was in his hands
“Mr. Wizard,” said the carriage horse
“My back begins to ache
I appreciate the brief respite
That you’ve allowed for me to take.”
“The time has come” the goliath said
“To talk of other things
Of gnolls and babes and potato sacks
And carriages and kings
And while the king is boiling hot
And my dreams full of eldritch things
But Kaloo, Kalay, we walk today
Beside carriages and kings!
Great game, great podcast!
If ever a board game was made for a podcast, then DnD has to be it. This podcast is a great use of both media—gaming and podcasting. Full of good storytelling and good fun. It is great to listen to this motley mix. Good way to introduce yourself to rpg’s, too, though experienced players will be there more for the story. Give it a listen—you won’t be disappointed!
A wonderful adventure
D8 Night is a wonderfully charming adventure with very a very fun cast. You always see people talking about high budget podcasts such as Critical Role when it comes to D&D games, but D8 night reminds you that this is game for anyone, and anyone can have fun playing. And that’s exactly what these guys are doing. Just having fun. I would highly recommend checking this podcast out!
A lot of podcasts are just talking about various topics, or interviews, which is cool and all, but sometimes you want to listen to some people having a great time hanging out. Well, this is it! I keep laughing at the same jokes over and over, no matter how many times I listen to the episodes. You should listen to so you can laugh as well.
