Organized Play By Shelly Mazzanoble, Trevor Kidd, Chris Tulach - 20/10/2014 [D&D Podcasts]



This is another great Podcast from WotC. Shelly is a spectacularly charming host. It is always fun to hear Trevor--I feel like he used to be around a lot more in the 4E days, but whenever I hear him he makes me smile. Chris is one of the all time great voices within the D&D Community--his enthusiasm for the hobby is always evident.

The description reads:
Chris Tulach joins the podcast to discuss D&D Organized Play and the Adventurer’s League.
Looking for a D&D game? Or continuing campaign? The D&D Adventurers League is an ongoing official organized play campaign for Dungeons & Dragons. It uses the fifth edition of the Dungeons & Dragons rules, and features the Forgotten Realms setting. You can play D&D Adventurers League games at any place that features adventures bearing the D&D Adventurers League logo. You can create a character and bring that character to games anywhere D&D Adventurers League is supported.

And if ever much worth listening to you if you play D&D.

Signal 23: Threshold [Numenera: The Signal Podcast]


Without a doubt the best Numenera Podcast

Signal is creative and wonderful every single time & this installment is one of the best--the fact that it only got the Silver is a crime!


The description of this is:
I'm Vaux, an Informed Jack who Tells Tales. This is my Signal. If you can hear this broadcast, it is for Threshold, a border city that is gateway to the Amorphous Fields. The Crafters are able to create art, tools, even clothing from the organic soup of the Fields - for a price. And many wonderous treasures can be found if you're brave enough to risk the biological chaos of the Amorphous Fields. Listen to it. Remember it. Pass it along.
Which is simply beautiful. The episode is a strong example of why of love this so much--creative, mysterious, a spring board for adventure.

Signal is just good.

Numenera Actual Play 1 [Walking Eye Podcast]


I have just started listening to this podcast. The players have a very healthy, playful attitude & I cannot wait to listen to more of it.
