Excellent!!!

If you enjoy live-play podcasts, start listening to The Old Ways now. The casts are excellent, there is a ton of content and the production is top notch. Whether you want unique takes on classics like “Masks of N” and “Horror on the Orient Express” or explore newer environments like Regency Cthulhu and Vaesen, The Old Ways delivers.

Absolutely Great

This is the best edited live play I’ve listened to. All the stories are gripping and intriguing, and the GMs range from great to spectacular. The episodes are arranged chronologically as released, so the different stories and game systems are mixed together, but the episodes are concise and easy to follow or skip. They’ve also got a great Discord server and Patreon.

The Old Ways are the best ways.

Great stories. Great characters. Great production. Who does not love a little Cthulhu before bedtime.
