Imagination Gone Wild

What a crazy fun group of people this is. I don't quite know how to describe it, maybe if you crossed the Hitchiker's Guide with Guardians of the Galaxy with Futurama with Welcome to Night Vale, you might come up with something like this. The characters are all crazy unique, there's as much crunchy story as there is surprisingly satisfying action, and while some of this stuff just shouldn't work on paper, it totally does in the telling. Sometimes I forget that I'm listening to play sessions, and not a scripted series. WHEN IS THE NEXT EPISODE?!

This is ridiculously, addictively fun to experience

This is soooooo ridiculously fun. As a fan of table-top gaming, I gotta say, this story, this universe, these players, these characters…seriously, love it. The GM and the players have created a compelling and nuanced story and the characters are just so crazy/hilarious/awesome it’s genuinely the most fun I’ve ever had listening to a show like this, hands down. The whole enchilada: from the mechanics and cosmology of the universe to the insane cast of characters (holy crap, seriously, what IS Dang???? How does Molly’s hand DO that? The Bones, the BONES, RIDE THE BONES!), is awesome and original and fun from start to finish. The same giddy sci-fi joy that I experienced with things like Firefly and Farscape and Hyperion, etc., is back. BACK! I dig how the show itself is set up, too: love the witty OOC banter, love the genuinely compelling and at times downright hilarious story (“meat jungle”??!! “he’s been cubed!” etc.). Listening to this is like sitting down at the table right alongside the players; just like I used to do back in my own table-topping days. For me, evoking the feeling of being right there at the table and in the mix of the story’s craziness is the gold standard for what shows like this can achieve. And this one does it. Great work, ya’ll! Can’t wait for the next episode! RIDE THE BONES!
