Great D&D podcast

I found these guys through the Don’t Split the Podcast Network. They share my love for Eberron so they can’t be all bad! Seriously they have a good viewpoint in gaming and are a pleasure to listen to.

A positive review.

I’m a huge fan of this podcast. Hosts I-Hsien and Shane show their system mastery time and time again as they dive deep in the art Dungeon Mastering. Even though I’m not a fan of Min/Maxing, I do enjoy the Character Creation Forge, as it seems to rely more on story development then pure damage (though it gets close sometimes). Recently I was surprised by their “Actual Play” series. I am not normally attracted to AP Podcasts: but these few episodes showed a “table top realism” rarely heard in the overly polished and scripted world of Actual Play. As for the TPT Discord community; I have found a home. As a player and DM who suffers from Asperger’s, it is rare to find a roleplaying game community that is so welcoming. Several times I have witnessed members asking me to clarify a post for its intended meaning, instead of criticizing my awkward use of words. Shane, I-Hsien; please keep up the good work.
