It felt like October was the month of new RPG podcasts. And as the world snuck out of October and out of the Autumn, the frost slowly came and I seemed to settle into the early chill of Winter and wonder where the time went. It is fake, after all. Better late than never, though I’m very excited to share October’s launches with you!

Good Neighbors (Launched Oct 5)

No one remembers the leeches in the coffee. No one sees the writing on the wall. No one knows that every cold spot, every bump in the night was a sign. Strange things happen every day in Louisiana, but they disappear just as quickly as they come. Everyone jokes about the gators in the sewers, but when the monsters come to Constance, you won’t need a professional — just a few Good Neighbors.

Join Matt, Sera, Anna, and Soren at the table, and let’s play Monster of the Week!

Dwarven Moss (Launched Oct 31)

DWARVEN MOSS began when gaming expert Tom Hodgins decided to ignite an old passion of his by playing some Dungeons & Dragons, so he recruited his friends, comedian Kris Siddiqi, and musician Jay McCarrol to play their very first official campaign. Jay, having a studio already setup in his dungeon suggested that they record their game as a personal keepsake for the group. As they listened back, they started adding more and more effects to enhance the story and before they knew it, the recording had spiralled out of control and taken on a life of its own — thus, Dwarven Moss was born. Dwarven Moss provides a unique listening experience entirely unlike other actual-play D&D podcasts. The campaign captures the hosts’ enthusiastic, improvised collective storytelling and elevates it with atmospheric effects and cinematic music. The end result is like an old fashioned radio play. It’s a story of two unlikely companions, a dwarf and a half-elf, lost together in Barovia, a mysterious land under the control of Strahd, the Dark Prince.
