    The table comes together for The Library Chronicles campaign one final time.  The story is discussed over the years and questions from listeners are answered. While this is the end of our first campaign, it is NOT the end of NxNQ.  And at the end of the episode, we tease a little of what’s to come next.

Mx Fate ,

I’d compare this to TAZ and the broads.

I have extremely high standards and this is amazing. I’ve only gotten to Ep5, and I can promise you now I will not regret this review later. If you like the Adventure Zone and/or the Broadswords and/or are a human being with emotions you’ll like this.

(I’m just kidding on the last part pls don’t hate me :P )

EllayB ,

Don’t miss this one

The cast makes it clear that this is more story-driven than actual play, but there’s enough dice rolling involved to keep things twisty and fun.

The role playing and intricate storyline is compelling and the production values ramp up quickly.

It’s definitely binge-worthy!

Can’t stop listening

So I started listening to podcasts in February of 2020 and stumbled upon this right away. I wasn’t looking for it and was initially hesitant because 90% of the fun of D&D is actually playing. But curiosity got the best of me and now I’m hooked. I’ve listened to all of Volume 1 and can’t wait to catch up. It’s so good. I listen to it whenever I get in the car. I can’t wait to see how Volume 2 and beyond go. If you are a fan of D&D and role play, you have to listen to this show.
