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!

The horrors of the mountain tomb begin to come into focus as the heroes parlay with a visionary cyclops and her necromantic cohort in a chapel dedicated to Urgathoa.

Here’s the link: Episode 192: The Eyes Have It.

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:

Caught in an open plaza with nowhere to run, the party is harried by an unknown shooter. Meanwhile, Dr. Kundatu Friss clings to life as fisher poison courses through his veins.

Tune in to Episode 43: Rat Poisoned.

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.

The Fortunes Untold gang continues their play through and review of Kids on Bikes from Renegade Games.

Jack and Mikey have solved the mystery of the hardware store vandal… sort of. What’s a lutin? What’s a matagot? What is its evil plan? And what time is Mom getting back from work?!

Here it is: Episode 18!

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 party continues toward a cave near the Forgotten Woods. Gar warned that whatever goes in never comes out. Now Relnor, Winnie, Dalfin, and Joan go in.

Here is Episode 15: A Miscreant Encounter

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 42: The One With Daddy Issues.  Here’s the synopsis:

Welcome Pathfinders! Back at the Temple of Pharasma our heroes must decide how they can best help the city of Wati and gain access to the necropolis once again, but a simple (side) quest to help the local guard turns personal for one of the Doorkeepers…

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

Happy listening!
