    Near Year, New Us! This episode contains none of the following: puns, horny jokes, and references no one gets. This is a serious show for serious people playing serious D&D, now. This is what you wanted, right? Right?
    Nah. We neither. Join Taro, Nat, and Nerium as they get up to their usual shenanigans. They may have been away from Alfallen for almost a quarter of a century, but the world's kept spinning, and there are answers to seek, jobs to do, and people in prison to visit...

    All EDited Out Vol VI

    Ho ho ho! 'Tis the season to be jolly, and we're here to ruin it with another special session of outtakes, bloopers, and general what-the-fuckery. Featuring special guests Beetle and our sadly departed Likki, this is sure to leave you laughing but confused. How we even have enough content for an actual episode of the show is beyond me, but Yubi's caskets of audio mishaps are overflowing and what better way to share the burden of what it's like trying to record the show than this...
    (We'll be back with the next actual real episode on Jan 8th!)

    47) Missed Connections

    Season 3 is in full swing as our merry trio settle themselves in The Laughing Cat. Nerium still has pieces of her old life to pick up, as well as more messages from Melvyn detailing all he's done to find her. Taro and Nat head out into Hopewell and to the library, determined to start to unravel the mysteries they've been unceremoniously dropped into, and Findex is put on the spot to prove his worth. But during an evening of good drink and food, their night is disrupted and soured by an old 'acquaintance' of Nerium...

    46) To Hopewell

    Welcome one and welcome all to the very first episode of season 3! Wahoo! Wahey! It's a party and you're all invited! Join our three "heroes" with our favourite anxious lizardman as we crash back onto Alfallen. We're stronger, we're smarter, and we're infinitely more fed up with Gods, magic, and it all not being as it should. They may be back, but it seems everything has changed drastically in the meantime...

Compelling, innovative, and fun!

I love this podcast. The main story is very well made and the smaller stories are also really fun to listen to! Giant podcasts with a ton of episodes and spin off campaigns overwhelm me, but this podcast balances everything nicely and is a blast to experience. You never know what you’re going to get with this fun batch of people. Both the PCs and the NPCs are rich in diversity, and I love how much thought goes into being inclusive. They put a really interesting spin on the mechanics of classes and races, which livens the story even more! The characters are exceptionally secretive and deceptive from the very beginning (especially around each other). This plus their spontaneity and the DM’s creativity really makes the campaign fun. Every episode is an adventure. I’m really glad I decided to listen to it!

Mastering Mystery, Magic, and Mechanics

I listen to a lot of TTRPG podcasts, but of all the DMs, Yubi does one of my favorite things in gaming better than anyone else: melding mechanics with roleplay and flavor. You won’t get “Eh, two Displacer Beasts come out of the woods, roll initiative;” instead, you get a genuinely suspenseful lead-up to a gripping, terrifying battle... but when you go in and check, you can see that Yubi has followed all the rules of the game flawlessly. This podcast proves that you can have the strong story of The Adventure Zone AND the mechanical purity of Critical Roll.
Not only that, but the atmosphere itself is just incredible. Yubi’s descriptions, the players’ (and characters’) reactions, and Rachel Graff’s music all create a beautifully treacherous world where every NPC, every spell cast, every health point matters. I will never forget how Yubi made a simple divination spell, something a spell caster gets by level five or six, seem awe-inspiring and just as incredible as we might find it in our world today. They are one of my biggest inspirations for DMing and the show is one of my favorites.

Funny, mysterious, compelling show

I really love this podcast—I find myself relistening to episodes all the time. The DM has amazing, creative, spooky concepts, and the players have a great dynamic together, as well as a real commitment to the drama and storytelling (and, of course, the jokes: this show has made me laugh so hard I cried).
