It was great when the battle for Trunau lasted several episodes since the series of combats were interspersed with mini side events and RP encounters.

My entertainment comes from these fights, because this is how you play the game, the whole point of this podcast.

What made this podcast differentiate itself from a sea of others was quality audio, Troy’s creative storytelling, Skid’s wonderful vocal theatrics, and of course the friendly unadulterated banter. It wasn’t the exhaustive and endless combat turns, high level number crunching and math, and rules research… Read more »
