Well worth it!

Great podcast. Good for intro into DND and the cast is wonderful.

Review or love letter?

I will try to keep this as short as possible..

Right, So I’m a 35yr old journeyman/Forman for the Electrical company I work for. I’m a father of three & I am subscribed to approx 27 podcasts that haven’t been listened to since I discovered TLD & DD. I have never played D&D or even seen a D&D game before in my life. No stranger to fantasy, Ie. FF, Dark souls, MTG in the early yrs. Never D&D though. Which I realize now is ironic that it’s essentially the same thing I’d do in games. This podcast , besides consuming every second of air time my ear pods get. Makes me regret that daily. What the TLD team and others like it are doing here is remarkable and admirable to say the least. My wife might be making fun of me and that’s fine.
It’s been fun answering dinner inquiries or questions on locations of said children with,
That would require a successful.. investigation/perception check. She loves it.

Honestly if I wasn’t the sole provider for our family in this not so family friendly world, TLD would be my first time using patreon*.?.

I can’t stop listening, please don’t stop producing.

Tell travis cmon !

I will be starting season 2 tonight on my drive home from work. Pretty excited.

THANK YOU!!

Krisurb ,

actual play with a lot of heart

The Lucky Die is not the first actual play podcast I have listened to, but it is one of the only that I have stuck with beyond the first few episodes. The dm and her players hit the emotional beats beautifully while keeping up with the action and combat that keep the story moving.
