    AV7: The Alligator at the Bar

    AV7: The Alligator at the Bar

    The party barely makes it out alive! They head back to lick their wounds and try to figure out how things went so wrong. One party member makes a major decision, leading to another changing of the guard. Now we have to deal with an alligator in our midst, because of course we do.

    AV6: Going Down in the Chapel

    AV6: Going Down in the Chapel

    With the new rogue in tow, the party delves further into the upper level of the Gauntlight. They find a stairway leading down (yeah!) and then immediately stumble across a chapel. Chapels are good, right?

    AV5: Enter the Rogue

    AV5: Enter the Rogue

    The party keeps searching the top level of the Gauntlight. In this episode, we loose a long time friend but gain a new one. Maybe having an actual rogue in a mega dungeon IS a good idea? And why are all of these creatures here in the first place?

    S2E53: Let's Wrap up Season 2

    Well that's a wrap for the season. the players get a final goodbye along with a chance to ask the DM some questions. Some could be answered, others...still TBD. We also say goodbye to one of our own who got a great new job that precludes playing during the time we record. Goodbye, Chris. We miss you already.

    S2E52: Blade Wars Part VI - Return of the Giant

    S2E52: Blade Wars Part VI - Return of the Giant

    This is the end of our three part battle. All parties have collided and the fate of the blade, Pyre and the planes is coming to a conclusion one way or another. The only question remaining is...will anyone get out alive?

    S2E51: Blade Wars Part V - The Inquisitor Strikes Back

    S2E51: Blade Wars Part V - The Inquisitor Strikes Back

    The battle rages on! In one corner we have Pyre and the Restless Jackals. In another, we have the Inquisitor. And finally, the Backalley Crew, caught in a vise. Luckily, Dorryn is able to successfully provide cover from behind a pillar. Did I mention that Pebble STILL has the blade and it desperately trying to keep it from either opponent. But what is the end game here?

Great find

I listen to many D&D podcast, love the old-school flavor with the fifth edition rules. Players seem to enjoy playing, DM obviously loves running the show. They get along well. Have fun playing but not overboard with the in-house jokes. Perfect balance, worth a listen if you like actual plays. Update: I started season two recently and I would suggest that if you’re new to the podcast jump to season two. Significantly better than season one in many ways.

Great podcast

I listen to several dnd podcasts. What I like most about this one is it’s realism. They are honest about issues that come up as a group playing this wonderful game together! Keep up the good work and I am looking forward to seeing 2!

THE D&D Podcast

I love D&D podcasts, and I look for a few things when I jump into a new one: How is the audio? How is the story? How is the authenticity?

Sometimes You Crit nailed all three of these for me. I'm in awe of DMs with the ability to create worlds and describe them, even more of those who record them to give as an interactive story. Jim presents his world with incredible detail; threats and humor abound. The players/characters have unique perspectives and skills to offer, and you can tell their choices have an impact on the world. This podcast also hits on things I expect from a regular D&D group - the difficulty of getting & keeping a group together, characters risking their lives out of brashness or bravery, or sometimes just not asking the right questions before taking action.

This is a must-listen podcast for anyone that loves Dungeons & Dragons and interactive storytelling.
