Kevin in Nepal ,

Easygoing mood with outstanding pacing

The tone of the players is both playful/informal and attentive/engaged. Really pleasant mood, imo. The GM's NPC portrayal is quite direct in a way that is perfect for the Star Wars genre, but the background details of casual NPC gestures or the occasional cinematic description are wonderfully evocative. On episode 12 so far, and I'm really happy there's so much more to catch up on.

Hudson please stop

80% of this show is great. The anti-comedy comedic instincts of Hudson via Tink are awful. If he would not grind every planning meeting for a mission to an absolute halt with the worst bits imaginable, I might not be ten episodes behind. That trait is only 30% of Tink, but its so grating that I downloaded apple podcasts on my iPad to write a bad review on two platforms.

ORPHEUS Protocol ,

If I like it, it seems inconceivable that you wouldn't, too.

I mostly dislike Star Wars, and am a vile, miserable curmudgeon when it comes to actual play podcasts.

That I keep religiously up on this podcast is a testament to the talent and charm of all involved.
