Loving Appendix N and DCC RPG

So good to see the podcast hasn't left us. Great podcast. I love that it takes an Appendix N book and pairs it with a DCC module and also gives us some great stuff for our game table.

A TRULY awesome podcast!

I can't say enough about what the Sanctum Secorum does from their reviews of Appendix N-related literature and other media, and then creating supplementary Dungeon Crawl Classics material for free at the same time! Their work is incredible - if you're a Sword and Sorcery gamer, check it out!

Fantastic podcast!

Whenever I need inspiration for my next game of DCC, I come here!
