    Join me as I continue my a series of episodes where I read through the (in)famous supplement to AD&D: Unearthed Arcana! Will I use UA in my campaign? Let's find out!

    This episode gets into the classes section of UA, where I discover and consider the cavalier! I had a lot of fun considering the options presented, but let's see if it will make it into my campaign as a PC option.

Content that takes you back!

Thanks to Mr. Shorten my work of interest in dungeons and dragons is renewed. The show reminds me of my first experiences with AD&D. It makes me want to find a group and roll some dice. Thanks for the all of the great content. Always excited for the next installment.

Cheers,

Zach

By far my favorite RPG Podcast

Approachable, knowledgeable, and just a great well produced listen. If you’re interested in old school D&D at all, do yourself a favor and subscribe.
