Matu's Dad ,

Fantastic and compelling story telling!

Ben is a fantastic example that that you don't have to be a professional voice actor in order to be an amazing GM. His knowledge of Star Wars and his ability to take any roll or curve ball thrown at him and spin a yarn without missing a beat is absolutely amazing!

Not just an good actual play

It is a fantastic Star Wars story podcast but also it helps you go through how to run an adventure. Unlike other SW podcasts, the host runs through the pre-made adventures FFG publish, so you can have a good idea of how to start running your adventures and be able to not railroad your players.

podcast-fan ,

Make it through the first two episodes...

... and you will be rewarded. Good gm ruling more for story telling than rigidity. Good collaboration and banter.
