    Episode 65 – We’re Boned

    This is it: the gang is facing their first challenge inside the hut! And I’m sure there’s one question on everyone’s mind. Will we ever stop talking about Pizza Hut now that we’re in Baba Yaga’s hut? Not this time! Join us as we talk about making out with the mascots of other pizza franchises, fight a sinewy pile of bones that makes touch attacks that would hit the AC of God himself, and find out who everyone’s favorite witch is. Music and Sound by Syrinscape. https://store.syrinscape.com/what-is-syrinscape/?attBecause Epic games need Epic game soundsThe Fantastic Worlds Podcast is a Fantastic Pods production.

A gem in the haystack of actual play podcasts

It’s obvious effort is made in the production, and the players are excellent at developing and acting upon their characters’ motivations and personalities. Though they goof about it, there isn’t any meta gaming and it’s obvious they play with integrity. Yes, as in any complicated game I’m sure mistakes are made, but I’ve yet to listen to or play in a game where that doesn’t happen. They truly keep the game fun, with high stakes, and fascinating back stories.

I’ve never played Pathfinder, though I have listened to and watched it played. This is a group that revels in the fun of the game, and it comes across in every episode.

You got me to write a review

This group is fantastic and fun to listen to. The roleplay is super engaging and makes my heart hurt at times with how genuine and fun all the characters are. I'm running Reign of Winter currently and love hearing another (mostly) queer party playing through it and seeing how they approached the different encounters. Highly recommend ths to anyone that is a fan of Glass Cannon, Critical Role, High Rollers, or Find the Path. Truly exemplary work.

Fun diverse group

After commenting on Twitter about another podcast that lost their one and only female member of the group without comment this podcast was recommended. I was tired of listening to a bunch of man child types guffawing over tiresome jokes that I was bored with at 12 years old. This podcast hit the spot and I enjoy the camaraderie and play style. After joining the discord channel I found that they are just as nice there as they seem to be on the podcast. Give it a listen...the adventure they are on is quite different from some of the other Pathfinder adventures that we may have experienced playing or on other related podcasts.
