Vile Hate made from Love

By Dani Neary - Aug 30 2018
Read more
Can I leave a review? I'm going to leave a review. This podcast was born of the love of Robert Schwalb and Shadow of the Demon Lord. This is a bunch of geeks who are good friends who wanted to share the darkness with everyone. ToBaS tries to keep true to the game while being ourselves and putting our own spin on things. The players remain ignorant of the lore of the world as our characters would be. We don't want to pollute our playing. Our GM has immersed himself in the Void for our benefit and his sanity is waining as he does. We love this show because it has allowed us to jump out of our normal RPG roles of heroes in fluffy blue skied worlds. We are struggling to keep alive and sane in the bleak world of RJS's creation. Real tears have been shed at the horrible things happening in this game. It has all our hearts in it, as dark as they may be. All Praise the Demon Lord. Hail!

An Amazing SotDL Live Play!

A fantastically produced long-form approach to the dark horror TTRPG Shadow of the Demon Lord. The GM & players explain the rules as they play through a terrifying campaign filled with monstrous creatures and a fantastic array of NPC characters. The players are hilarious and the characters are fun, engaging, and each have their own story while staying uniquely true to the dark fantasy of SotDL. Anybody who has any interest in SotDL or other horror RPGs should 100% check out this podcast-it’s absolutely amazing and a ton of fun!

Woof.  I guess this past week got the best of me.  A day late, but there’s a little more to listen to this time around so hopefully it’s worth the wait.  Also, I fully intend to get the next episode out a day earlier to hopefully make up for it. Yeesh.

THE TEMPLE IS BURNING!  Eva tried, but it doesn’t appear she can save Rose… of course everything is on fire around her and Four, and Torel so they probably want to git up and git out!  Things appear to be accelerating and a course of action needs to be decided upon and followed.  Of course there is always more to learn and possibly exploit (I’m looking at you Torel) about the ever deteriorating world around them!  HAIL!

It’s been a bit, but we are back following our “heroes?” Four, Torel and Eva as they are in a dilapidated hovel with their new “friend(s)?” Father Mayhew.  Who seems to be keeping a secret about this place, which I think is about to come out.  Of course the pursuit of Captain Mathias Reems seems to be picking up as well.  I wonder how long they can stay hidden?

We had an issue with one of the audio tracks for this one so you may notice some strangeness with the flow, but we will be getting back to normal, and our regular release schedule, so thanks for sticking with us, and we hope you enjoy the episode!

Well that was a nice respite.  With Torel and Eva somewhat plotting to “provide” some corruption to Benjamin so the Blade of Djed won’t push so hard to sacrifice him,  I wonder if his Mother, Sia, or Four would have anything to say about that. And what of the Master of the House?  How long can Eadfrith keep our “heroes?” hidden.  Thanks for joining us again as the journey continues. HAIL!

The Demon Lord himself was kind enough to slip through a Void Breach and chat with us for a while.  How could we refuse?!  Would we have even DARED!?  I think NOT!  We talk about Shadow of Demon Lord and get some juicy tidbits about an upcoming project that will be “Kicked” into existence very soon!  INTRIGUE!  This was as much fun to put together as it was to take part in.  We are very thankful to have had Rob take the time to speak with us.

Vile Hate made from Love

By Dani Neary - Aug 30 2018

Can I leave a review? I'm going to leave a review. This podcast was born of the love of Robert Schwalb and Shadow of the Demon Lord. This is a bunch of geeks who are good friends who wanted to share the darkness with everyone. ToBaS tries to keep true to the game while being ourselves and putting our own spin on things. The players remain ignorant of the lore of the world as our characters would be. We don't want to pollute our playing. Our GM has immersed himself in the Void for our benefit and his sanity is waining as he does. We love this show because it has allowed us to jump out of our normal RPG roles of heroes in fluffy blue skied worlds. We are struggling to keep alive and sane in the bleak world of RJS's creation. Real tears have been shed at the horrible things happening in this game. It has all our hearts in it, as dark as they may be. All Praise the Demon Lord. Hail!

A fantastically produced long-form approach to the dark horror TTRPG Shadow of the Demon Lord. The GM & players explain the rules as they play through a terrifying campaign filled with monstrous creatures and a fantastic array of NPC characters. The players are hilarious and the characters are fun, engaging, and each have their own story while staying uniquely true to the dark fantasy of SotDL. Anybody who has any interest in SotDL or other horror RPGs should 100% check out this podcast-it’s absolutely amazing and a ton of fun!
