this name is tak3n ,

Topest notch

The title says it all.

Happy Jacks actual plays are great!

If you are looking for a terrific listen in the “radio drama” tradition you’ve found it. I listen to them while I work and they are tremendously entertaining tales. The players and GM all do a wonderful job of unfolding their cooperative narrative experience!

How many times will Jason make players cry? How does Stu make me not hate vampire? How will Sam make it weird? At the end of the day this is one of my favorite groups to listen to. I actually removed critical role from my playlist because I liked these guys more. They touch a huge variety of games and allow a huge spectrum of players from all walks to sit and play games together. These people are one of the few things I like in Southern California...
