Fantastic People Telling an Amazing Story

Came here on a whim after it was recommended by Whelmed: The Young Justice Files. I’ve listened to some Critical Role, and while I like their cast, I’ve never been big into high fantasy.

This podcast, on the other hand, scratches the itch for unique superhero storytelling. Loren is an incredible storyteller who greatly enables his players to reach for the stars, and the players are all great at taking risks and portraying the emotions of these characters. I love seeing them change and grow. Golden Glove, Nazgrim, Kid Kati and Singularity all come so far from Issue 1 to Issue 40, and the stories of Imp, Wytch, Silver Tiger, Blue Spider, etc. etc. are amazing.

This has been a fun show, so engaging and entertaining, but beyond that, it has inspired me to start running my first campaign in Masks. Thank you all for providing a story that dives right into what’s great about superheroes unapologetically, and thanks for being yourselves and sharing your fun at the table with us!

Wonderful Podcast

A fantastic show put on by a group of talented and funny people. One of the very few who run an actual play podcast of MASKS A New Generation they tell a great story of a group of four young super heroes with a great group dynamic, season two of Fall of Magic & Dungeon World is incredibly interesting and creative, and season three of the Doomed is off to a fantastic start so what are you waiting for give them a listen! You won’t regret it!

A Great Time

There's really not much else to say about NoaR other than the fact that it's a solid Actual Play. Compared to other Masks APs, the audio quality could perhaps use a bit more attention but they're always bringing a great game. Perhaps more than anything, they feel like a game played at home, with all the banter and friendly teasing going on. Sometimes they get a bit off track, sometimes they make rules mistakes, sometimes they are just the slightest bit off on something (good job picking the MOST common Helium isotope to be a rare plot point, guys!), but overall it's a wonderful story and you could do far, far worse than listening to these nerds.
