Warning: This podcast is a series podcast

This means episodes are recommended to be heard in order from the very start. Here's the 10 best episodes of the series anyway though!

Rank #1: Session Zero - Part 1

Podcast cover
Read more

SKIP TO EPISODE 1 FOR THE START OF THE CAMPAIGN This is our Session Zero. We - the players and the GM - talk about the type of game we want to play and the kind of world we want our characters to live in. It's fairly crunchy on the rules and the editing and audio quality isn't on the same level as the actual episodes. 

But it's fun and kind of interesting if you like that sort of thing.

The full episodes have us actually playing the game, along with better pacing and tighter audio production. 

Part 1 focuses on discussing the kind of game everyone wants to run, character creation and walking through what all the various stats mean on their character sheets.
