Monsters ARE great!

By TheShadowplay - Jan 02 2020
Read more
I’ve been listening from the beginning and I love this podcast. James seems like the kind of guy I’d want to talk monsters with and play games with. These great short episodes give a surface delve into the monsters and e longer deep dives are informative as well. Keep them coming!

Awesome for anyone who loves AD&D!

The only complaint I have is that I wish the episodes were longer.
