New Arc Not Worth Your Time

With so many fantastic actual play podcasts out there, I can’t recommend spending time on the aggressively mediocre newest arc, Graduation. Despite the McElroy’s consistent inability in all of the three main arcs to create villains with interesting or in any way compelling motivations beyond being bog-standard “primordial darknesses that corrupt people and want to destroy the world” and their one dimensional main characters, the combination of humor, interesting worldbuilding, and moments of legitimate pathos and interesting side-characters made the first two arcs worth listening to.

Four episodes in, the Graduation Arc has none of these, and no stakes have been established that make me want to keep listening to find out what happens. All of the flaws in The Adventure Zone have become more glaring, and all of the strengths are nowhere to be seen.

Listen to Friends At Table, listen to the excellent first arc of Campaign and the very good second arc (Skyjacks), listen to FunCity, even listen to the Amnesty or Balance arcs (both of which were very good despite their flaws.) Listening to four middle-aged, straight, cis, white, men stumble their way through a ploddingly paced, badly acted, and utterly pedestrian fantasy college AU is four hours of my life I desperately wish I could get back.

Excellent Storytelling

The McElroys are hilarious and TAZ is evidence of their excellent storytelling abilites.
