Very good vibes

I find it difficult to find a good actual play podcast that has the right kind of vibes. Not too serious, not too boisterous… just a good friend-y vibe. The folks at Stars are Right do an excellent job at putting down just the right kinds of vibes to sit back and listen.

Absolutely wonderful

I can’t say how amazing this actual play is, the energy is going into it is apparent by the players. While a little slow to coalesce as a party and story to find a track it quickly comes together and becomes something dark, heartbreaking and special. 10/10

Great CoC podcast

The Stars are right is a great CoC podcast. I have binge listened to all the episodes and always wanting more.

Phaedra is a wonderful keeper and all the players have a great attitude and chemistry together while playing even when they are dying (RIP Bengal Cat). From the opening corny jokes or puns to the cliff hanger ending of the episodes, they keep me entertained.

Thank you all for keeping my sanity high while listening to you lose yours to the mythos.
