Can’t miss podcast

TPT is one of those podcasts I look forward to each week. From the campaign stories, helpful main topics, and the character creation forge, this dynamic duo delivers!

My favorite episode? Episode 15 with the character built from the song “Devil in Me” by Halsey. Honestly every character built each episode tells a story of a hero from levels 1-20. I’ve also used one of their builds (the vampire hunter) in a solo campaign and look forward to more.

Congrats on 5 years and looking forward to another!

One of my favorites!

These guys are some of the best trrpg podcasters out there. They're informative, clear, and supremely entertaining. Audio quality is fantastic. I feel like every episode I listen to I come away knowing more about how to be a better player and a better game master. Thanks, guys!
