Simply the Best

A long running podcast with lots of great material and just enough NY sarcasm to make me feel at home. Love you guys

A must use resource

As I’ve grown as a person and DM over the years it is only because of Total Party Thrill that I am the competent Dungeon Master and engaged Player that I am today.

This is because of the fact that each episode expands on the ideas that I would have if I tried to come up with a heist, or how I would run Dragons, or my ideas of the alignment chart. The hosts take what you know and go further then I could and perhaps you could as well. This podcast explores a topic and delves deep into it allowing me as both a player and DM to think, and use the ideas incorporated into it.

The fact that they are very engaged with each other and their community does wonders for me.

If your looking for a podcast that makes you think about what to do for your next game night, and how you’ll incorporate those plans into the game, look no further!
