This is the worst Wendy’s I have ever been to.

I paid $1200 to leave this review

I bought a dang iPhone so I could rate this great podcast on the only store front anyone cares about, so you know I’m being serious here.

D20 Syndicate feels like sitting around a storage building with your old high school friends because it’s midnight and you can’t risk waking your friend’s parents with your nerdy outbursts. It’s a great way to get your role playing fix when you can’t get your friends together because you’re all adults with responsibilities or whatever.

Four longtime friends and their kidnap victim will make you double over in laughter about Hungry Man dinners and Mort’s Port Shorp, only to make you tear up moments later when a character discovers the abandoned remains of their childhood home mere seconds later. They really do it all.

Lest I forget to mention that this podcast is for nasty folk who like their storytelling heartfelt and eschew stock sound effects for sucking and popping mouth noises, so make sure you’re down to clown before entering the Syndicate.

Really enjoyable to listen to

Before listening to this podcast, I was passively interested in D&D. Now, having listened, I’m really interested in it and have joined a game myself.

Seth, the DM, does great voices and accents and really paints a picture with his story telling. The rest of the crew do an awesome job playing their characters and adding to the immersion.

This podcast is a great mix of humor, fantasy, and even some light horror elements. Keep up the good work!
