Ryuko098 ,

Great podcast with wonderful tips!

Helped me think better about how my campaign can be ran, revise plot, and make the campaign more forward looking (even if the players don’t see it) and fun! Easy listening with great ideas. Thanks!

Amazing dnd podcast

Coming from Spotify to iTunes to right this review. Alley and Trevor do an incredible job producing this podcast and it’s always a treat to listen to new episodes while I work overnight. The topics that they choose are always interesting, and they always being a different perspective to the table. It feels like I’m sitting with them having a discussion.

However their obsession with idle champions disturbs me slightly, and they have gotten a little political recently unfortunately, but it’s bearable.

Keep up the amazing work you two.

Dungeons For Everyone!

The hosts are clearly excited about the topics of the RPG and you can feel their passion!

This is not just a podcast for DMs or experienced players as the hosts break things down into new player friendly bits of information! I especially enjoy the examples they give for situations so there's no questioning what they meant on rules when they debate classes or new features that Wizards has announced. They do lean a bit more DM than player on the whole being DMs themselves but still players can take away ideas and enjoy discussions too.

They provide plenty of spoiler warning when discussing adventures which is great for those wishing to avoid any upcoming adventure knowledge!

Great handling of listener feedback, if you write in they will respond it feels, and there's a good balance of topic discussion to listener feedback time.

A good DND podcast that I look forward to each week!
