Storytelling at its finest

Absolutely in love with the way the game is played and the story is told. Everyone does such an amazing job vocalizing the emotions, setting the scenes, and bringing the listener in on the adventure. Thanks for doing what y’all do!

The Dumb Ranter ,

Nerrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrds

JK!!!! Love the pod, keep it up. I love your storytelling and the voice acting is PERFECT. LOVE it it brings back memories of playing RPGs at my local game store with my father and being almost 10 when I first started coming along. Being the youngest person there. Wondering what all these guys and gals were talking about. Of COURSE I was a Orc with the biggest axe possible. lol. But anywayssss, keep it up love the pod.
