Dungeons & Dragons Explained And Other Random Encounters

Dungeons & Dragons !

Most famous and sometimes infamous of all tabletop roleplaying games. The number One both in time and success.

With this belated Episode 8, we try to come back to the basics.

First, The Rolistes Podcast introduces you to Aora, one of London’s friendliest roleplaying expat.

Second, through our discussion with Aora, and many other random encounters, we try to lift the veil from what her favourite game, Dungeons & Dragons, is about.

Finally, we attempt to do so in a manner which, we hope, roleplayers AND people not familiar with that hobby will enjoy.

If you do have questions or comments about this episode and Dungeons & Dragons, please don’t hesitate to contact The Rolistes Podcast.

Thanks to Aora and to all the participants to the randomly generated question sessions:

  • Friendly Danes Emil and Meda during a visit of the amazing shop Faraos Sigarer in Copenhagen
  • Oscar at Westfield Stratford and Vaughn in an undisclosed location attend this event.

As described in the announcement part please consider contributing to my Patreon and/or join us at “Le Drinks & Dices” on Monday March 28th at the Tattershall Castle and the next one which will take place on Monday April 25th.

…and for more podcast awesomeness, the next episode of The Grognard Files which should be about Advanced Dungeons & Dragons.
