Want to sit around all day playing D&D with your friends, but they’re too busy with “bills” and “marital troubles” to hang out?

Sit back, forget about your worries, and escape from your boring everyday life by hanging out with us as we nerd out for your listening pleasure!
Looking for Truffle
A council-provided envoy attempts to wrangle our heroes to escort them out of Enoka, but their inquisitive nature keeps them focused on unearthing secrets involving the missing mushroom children.
There are little mushroom children missing from the spore village of Enoka! Luckily, Nezrah and Kanak are hot on the case, because Ophelia and Gildebrand couldn't be bothered to investigate.
Passive Aggressive Negotiations
The council of the mushroom village of Enoka requests aid from our fate-bound heroes, but Gildebrand has grown weary of not getting paid. Only time will tell if the group can reconcile their different ideals and work together.
Mush Ado About Nothing
After an unfortunate social misunderstanding, our displaced heroes encounter an unknown species of mushroom person, who leads them on a guided tour of their whimsical village.
After escaping through a mysterious portal, the group finds themselves lost and disoriented. Gil snoops on an unsuspecting Nezrah, while Ophelia deals with a surly new companion that arrives to lend a helping hand
The Yonderlings encounter an all-new, creepy threat as they throw everything they have into trying to rescue Kan's grandma in the finale of our prologue arc.
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!
