The podcast makes you want to roll play again

This Group makes you want to play roll playing games again and gives you hope that players will help build each others characters up in amazing ways. They Contribute in hilarious and brilliant way to the world of Numenera through the Gm’s epically inventive story. The fact that they use Monte Cooks Consent in Gaming clearly shows through in the trust the players have for the GM and the way they feel ownership when contributing to the story collectively. Everyone should give them a try you won’t regret it.

Great chemistry and weird story!

Just stumbled on this podcast a few days ago and am already through 5 of the episodes! I love it! The players are all fun and get into the story, the story is weird and twisting, great editing and fun sound effects that really add to the story. I can't wait to see where this story goes!
