    Now What?

    Last season, Yllairies, Mepris, and Keilah sailed to the Moonshae Isles to find and obtain Keilah's magic bagpipes. After many sea voyages they finally found the instrument in the hands of Queen Urphania. Instead of aiding the queen in her war against a powerful rival, the broads performed a heist and stole the bagpipes back. They escaped to their safe house in Sigil via Keilah's magic ring. Now what?

One of the best

I’ve been a huge fan of actual play podcasts for quite some time, but have never listened to one like this. I listen to most of the episodes in a few days I just could not stop! They do an amazing job of mixing both dnd and improve storytelling.

A Whole New World

I entered the world of D&D through a podcast called Queens of Adventure, a cast of Drag Performers doing actual play. I fell in love with it so I followed the first suggested podcast from ITunes and it was The Broadswords! I am so happy to have discovered y’all. I’ve been power listening on my commute for two weeks. I am only on S2e16 but have committed myself to more! I love the in depth world you create Victoria, and love how the whole group works together to create amazing adventures with plenty of comedy and just the right amount of seriousness. Hopefully you’ve stayed above the knitting podcasts! Keep up the awesome adventures! I’m loving it!

Came for the representation, stayed for the story

Being a non-binary person myself when I heard there was an all woman and non-binary cast dnd podcast I JUMPED!! Despite the rough sound in the first few episodes I immediately fell in love with the broads. That love has only grown more and more listening to them grow throughout the show. Victoria is an amazing dm who creates this enticing story filled with mystery, adventure, and lots of shenanigans. The editing and sound effects/background music really draw you into the world. Tracy, Kristin, and Bee are so much fun to listen to! They’ve created characters that are easy to connect with. I’ve loved the guests that have been brought on and the bloopers at the end of the episodes are one of my favorite things. I’ve finished the full show in just a week and I’m seriously excited to hear what they have planned for season 3. Love you Broads!
