Horror/comedy that’s enjoyably disturbing

I’m new to ttrpgs and also podcasts in general. But this one has been extremely entertaining. It’s really hard to stop once you start. I have to force myself to take breaks and listen to something else and very now and then. Each character (including the NPCs) satisfies a different itch. You’ve got the noble, the greedy, the apathetic, the pathetic, the too cool for school, etc. I’m really appreciating the all facets they’re covering. And the horror is truly disturbing. I’ll never think of a citrus peeler the same. Excellent job. A+++

Stupendous!

Such a cool show. Funny in all the right places and terrifyingly epic! Wonderful group of guys sitting around playing a TTRPG and letting us listen in to the magic.

Can’t stop listening

Listen yall, wolf or otherwise. DNDaddies got me to try this podcast and I can’t stop listening to it. Some of my podcast favorites drop a new ep today? Too bad I’ve got Tons of Pretending to be People backlog to go through today. I almost hate it. Give it a try!
