The Crow’s Codex is a series of stories told via Tabletop RPGs played by real people. In each tale the characters and players will be different, and you can expect new systems along the way as well!

In these stories you can expect themes of curses, prophecies, fear, etc. The goal in the telling of these tales is to ask some of the harder questions, like "At what point does someone stop being a person?" and "How much freedom of choice can one have in a world where Prophecy is a real thing?"

Je Ne Sasquatch ,

Great cast and story

Curse of Lords begins with a novel mystery and continues with heartwarming and thought provoking episodes. The cast is earnest and funny, and does a great job of interacting with the unusual setting that has been created for them.

The sound quality is good, and the episodes are very polished with excellent audio, music, and effects.

Love it!

Being a fellow podcaster I love to check out new shows. This one blew me away with its unique characters and dark world. Excited to see where it goes and you should as well!

Curse of Lords is a great listen for any D&D fan. It features a cool cast of characters and an interesting homebrew world. I can't wait for more episodes!
