Freaking Phenomenal!!!

This podcast is a complete god’s send from the great old ones. The storytelling and acting will keep you on your toes and waiting for the next episode. Definitely worth giving a listen to!!!

Slow burn, great Keeper

Have been working through the Crimson Letters playthrough, loving the role playing and atmosphere and picking up some great tips for running games but watching how the keeper does it

Hate podcasts? Try this.

I’ve been saying podcasts aren’t my thing for years now, but The Eldritch Hour’s The Star On The Shore has finally shut me up. The writing is exceptionally well done, the pacing has kept me hooked, and the cast holds no shortage of humor at all the best moments, even though the sessions themselves are so perfectly focused. I’m amazed at how much care has been put into this. 15/10. Thank you mad lads for sharing so much joy with a total stranger.
