As the end of the Summer approaches, the days get shorter, and the weather cooler… I find myself searching for new shows to immerse myself into with a hot cuppa tea in my hands. And as always, the RPG podcasting community never fails to deliver.

B-Roll (Launched August 1)

B-Roll is named as a pun for its ancillary nature to B Cubed, similarly named for the hosts’ last names starting with B, and for the fact that it’s an actual play D&D podcast. You know, like, rolling dice.

The Cast Perilous (Launched August 16)

An actual play tabletop RPG/storytelling podcast, featuring home-made sound effects and (endearingly?) amateur players.

Listen as we tell the tale of young villagers, who are drawn into adventures surrounding a weird faerie-tale forest, in turns both dark and whimsical.

Curse of Strahd: Twice Bitten (Launched August 20)

Six DMs return to the mists to run a completely Rules-As-Written Curse of Strahd campaign. Our core question: what happens when, rather than luring in a party of heroes or adventurers, the mists of Barovia claim a group of cowardly, cynical, selfish, and/or traumatized individuals who fall — not leap — into adventure? Join Jack, Kaiya, Linus, Tsarina, Twi and their DM DragnaCarta (creator of the popular Curse of Strahd: Reloaded guides) to follow the story of a group of ordinary people thrust headfirst into danger.

Admiralty Blues (Launched August 26)

Welcome to Admiralty Blues, an actual-play podcast of Beam Saber (by Austin Ramsay) — a Forged in the Dark sci-fi game with mechs! Many battles waged on the planet Sirvon’s supercontinent have been fought with these giant machines, and the ongoing cold war has heated up again as unknown forces have wiped out the Admiralty’s communication network: the belligerent Vanguard pirates and the vengeful once-empire of Lorne have found their time to strike! Tasked with fixing the network is Mercury Squadron, otherwise known as a bunch of oddball reservists living in an ancient blimp. With their wide range of skills and personalities, they just might be up to the task — or they’ll cause more problems than they’ll fix! Listen in every Wednesday to find out!
