Yay They’re Back!

One of the few podcasts that perform in-depth reviews of Pathfinder books and even among the fewer that breakdown the books with enough detail to go chapter by chapter.

I discovered this podcast when they did the Pathfinder Playtest review and was sad when the podcast seemed to have gone on hiatus shortly afterwards.

Yay to discover they are back. They help hold your engagement with humor and as a person who doesn’t have quite the free time to read all of the books Paizo puts out, getting reviews and breakdowns of their books are invaluable.

Turns out they aren’t dead!

Even after all of the talk with Caleb’s.... *ahem* personal issues, turns out the gang is back and it’s the Year of the Remaster 2: now with Remastering!

Anyway, amazing show where you can learn a LOT about this awesome game: I always point new players to the 100 series. Many great tips for GMs, and the show is hilarious too! Glad to see them back and at it

Mandatory Resource for Playing Pathfinder

If you are new to pathfinder or you are a GM with new players this podcast should be your first stop! Listen to all the 100 level episodes at least twice while you have the book open to follow along and you will jump smart your understanding of this very complex game and make your first play session much smoother.

I cannot recommend this podcast highly enough. The hosts have an amazing chemistry that I’ve never never seen surpassed on tv or podcast in the past. Both are extremely knowledgeable and experienced. Caleb has great advice from a creative point of view and Christian is amazing from a mechanics and optimization point of view. Together they are able to provide a wholistic understating of the game that you would be hard pressed to understand from reading the books alone.
