What to Listen to this Weekend

1 The Glass Cannon Podcast

The Glass Cannon Podcast

What is the Glass Cannon Podcast? Well, in the spirit of old school Dungeons and Dragons, a collection of five super-nerds (Joe O’Brien, Grant Berger, Matthew Capodicasa, Skid Maher, and Game Master Troy Lavallee) emerge blinking from their parents’ basements to engage in an actual play campaign of Paizo’s epic Pathfinder adventure path, Giantslayer!

 

With Hhurrun Springbane defeated, the heroes must conquer his undead allies before returning to Akargrim and completing their quest

2 Androids and Aliens

Androids and Aliens

The aforementioned GCP crew take to the stars in an all new campaign in Paizo’s newest system: Starfinder. As a direct result of the Patreon support for Glass Cannon, they’re working through the Dead Suns AP in an all new podcast, and they’ve brought along a new cast member, Ellinor Dilorenzo!

This week’s synopsis:

The jungle continues to take its toll, both physically and mentally, upon the party.

 

Tune in to Episode 39: Protocol Me Maybe.

3 Fortunes Untold

Fortunes Untold

Fortunes Untold is a show where a group of gamers get together and review different tabletop RPGs. But they don’t just tell you about the games, they show you how they play. The crew tries out the rules, test drives the setting, and at the end of the adventure they hand out Experience Points and see if the system levels up.

This week, the Fortunes Untold gang continues their kaleidoscopic journey through the world of Overlight by Renegade Games.

KNow that Kyrus has gotten the key, the next step is to find the door it unlocks! This week our Skyborn duo hunt for the hidden location of the entrance to the Hanging Prison. But even if they find a way in, is Shatu Hak still alive to be rescued?

 

Here it is: Episode 14!

 

4 Titans of All’Terra

Titans of All’Terra

The Titans of All’Terra is a podcast brought to you by Joshua Lorimer of Sneak Attack! fame.  This DnD 5e actual play podcast is brand spanking new, so get in on the ground floor now!  It is also 100% family friendly, so round up the kids and make this a family event.  This week’s episode’s synopsis:

The city of Lestraad recovers and mourns from the aftermath of the titan attack.  Relnor receives an unexpected summons.

Here is Episode 11: A New Command

5 Find the Path Podcast

Find the Path Podcast

We’ve written before about our love for Find the Path, so I’ll point you there.  But the tl;dr version is that it is a live play show that is playing through the Mummy’s Mask Adventure Path for the Pathfinder RPG from Paizo. If you aren’t familiar with Mummy’s Mask, think ancient Egypt and you have the general vibe!

This week they dropped Episode 38: The One With the Tekenu.  Here’s the synopsis:

Welcome Pathfinders! Continuing their search for the missing priest our heroes are faced with what may be their strangest fight yet! An unconventional enemy may require unconventional tactics if the Doorkeepers have any hope of surviving to find their lost friend…

Enjoy the episode here, and tell them NoE sent you!
