Tails from The Dark Dragons Inn is a long-form, serialised, high-fantasy, improv fiction podcast driven at its core by tabletop role-play. Released weekly every Sunday at 10:30AM BST.



Hosted and Game Mastered by Ray Stevens, accompanied by his players, Tom (Erbak), Liz (Tobe), Vinny (Mhurren) and Nina (Myx), with occasional guest appearances, he invites you into a world both familiar and strange, these adventures take place in a home-brew alternate version of the Forgotten Realms.



The core cast of Tails from The Dark Dragons Inn​ features a diverse group of players who've come together from across the country to tell the shared tale of “The Scales of Justice”, a band of heroes (though some would call them mercenaries).



Our story is told through improv and tabletop role-play, however, for the purposes of the show, much of the mechanical aspects of this are removed, cutting the fuss and leaving the story and character interactions behind.



What starts as a simple 'muscle for hire' job, brings the party together to aid a city under siege and the civilians within. A cult, known only as the Cult of the Dragon, seek to unleash Chaos in the world and as our heroes learn of their plans, the race is on to put a stop to their ambition. In classic high-fantasy fashion, the overarching problem of the plot is seemingly almost insurmountable in scale and by extension, each character is dealing with their own personal goals and issues which we develop throughout the show.



You can find out more about the characters, the world and what's going on through our website https://tailsfromthedarkdragonsinn.co.uk. If you have any questions, feedback or suggestions for the show; please feel free to contact us on twitter @DarkDragonsInn

Excellent narrative experience

I am highly impressed with the product this group puts out. The narrative editing style combined with a colorful cast of characters and engaging GM make this an absolute pleasure to listen to. There is great chemistry between the group as a whole and the format of the show makes it very easy to listen to and follow along week to week.

A Great Example of the Genre

With so many actual play podcasts out there, the key to standing out is the ability to convey the fun being had, whether around the table or in chat. The great thing about this show is the clear joy the cast has with each other and their characters. There is also a wonderful focus on interaction and investigation that creates a smooth narrative flow, making the show an enjoyable listen for the story these animated players tell together. I highly recommend you give it a listen.

This is so enjoyable! I adored the music background a even more so enjoyed the comraderie between all the players and GM. I found the descriptions engaging and really loved the details being set up. I am anxiously awaiting more delights from this group.

Gnomic troubadours for the win.
