Great story and lovely mechanics

Listened to episode 0 and then dove into it and I can’t stop binging it ❤️

mediocre storytelling

i made it to episode 5, just barely, and had to stop because this is just painful to listen to. the players and gm are pretty much bumbling through the story which, by episode 5, still has zero momentum. even more tedious is that i still have no reason to care about these characters. if i did, maybe i could deal with the fact that the story is crawling at a snail’s pace. also, screaming in an annoying voice isn’t comedy, it’s just juvenile and masturbatory. maybe the party just hasn’t hit their stride yet, but i can’t bear to listen them flounder through another episode. also, i listened to episode zero and what a mistake that was. no profound insights there. the gm seems to think that the leveling system of dnd 5e is broken because at higher levels the players become overpowered or some such nonsense and can only fight dragons at that point. that’s only if a gm is so uninspired that they can’t homebrew some more powerful opponents to challenge their players. oh wait, the gm didn’t even know the word “homebrew.” that was some serious foreshadowing and very telling in hindsight.
