Reminded me of Left Right Game

I have no experience with any tabletop role playing games but I really enjoyed this show! So don’t shy away if this would be new to you. Super into the setting, characters, and story. The bios on the website were helpful, this is a show you want to pay attention to but I was happy to relisten to parts if I got distracted. Looking forward to season 2 and maybe finding a way to play a game like this!

Amazing listen

Fantastic show! I can’t wait for season 2, I’m so invested in the characters and need to know what’s going to happen next!

Incredibly Promising

Right off the bat this show has an awesome hook. I’ve listened to a lot of actual play shows and made a couple myself, and this one has the strongest opening I’ve ever heard. 10/10, I’d never heard of the Cortex system before this but they are using it to the fullest extent as they tell an awesome story. Plus pulling in voice actors to voice the npcs is just a really cool move. Well done to Josh and the gang at GSD.
