    TFTGGW Soundtrack: Administrative Hell Hounds (Music from Episode 49)

    We're on our between-season break, so this week's release is some music from Episode 49. Note that around 1:35 the music that would become Tara's theme appears for the first time. You'll find it repeated in a lot of subsequent combat music. 

    We should have a one-shot coming out in the next couple weeks, so keep updating the podcast feed!

    The party has finally reached the bottom of the ruined wizard research complex. The Department of Integration is run by Strethok the Necromancer, who is presumably the villain behind the heroes' troubles, right?

    Arriving in Integration/Strethok's Introduction

    Arriving in Integration/Strethok's Introduction

    When the party descended the stairs to Integration a new piece of art by Shaunmakes was shown to them. This is pretty much how they experienced it (minus the music): First they saw only the top, then they panned down, saw the shocking image, and zoomed out. 

    Pretty neat, eh? Special thanks to Ben Carter for creating the video out of our music and Shaun's art.

Great new show!

Good story. Players are fun but not overbearing like many other actual play podcasts. Hope they keep at it. Owlbears rule.

Update: much more than I could have predicted. Wonderful show!

Update 2: they finished another season. My fav podcast by far. If you like a good story, fun characters and a nice balance bw role play and combat this is the podcast. Excellent audio too.

Family-Friendly Dive into Some Rich Storytelling

I came across Tales from the Glass-Guarded World quite by accident, and soon discovered a rich, complex world full of intrigue and fascinating characters. The story starts off a bit slow, but your patience is soon rewarded with clever plot twists, fun NPCs, and an ever-expanding world of possibilities. It was such a relief to find a kid-safe D&D podcast, but one that’s actually GOOD is a rare find indeed.
Looking forward to Season 3!

Great D&D actual-play!

I had tried several bigger, more well-known podcasts like Critical Role before stumbling upon this one, and I just couldn’t get into them. Tales from the Glass-Guarded World is the first D&D podcast that really hooked me and kept me coming back every week, and is still one of my favorites. I was first drawn in by the homebrew setting but then came to love the characters and the story. Great job, TFTGGW, and keep up the good work!
