Tabletop roleplaying games allow us to produce improvised stories, told communally between friends. The stories involved are less curated, never scripted and almost always filled with fantastic adventure. But there are a LOT of shows out there. Listed here, you'll find some of our favourites.

Dungeons and dragons

DnD RAW | D&D Actual Play Podcast

Our colorful, unearthed arcana characters go on adventures in our actual play Dnd5e podcast, DnD RAW, published every other Monday! We (mostly) follow rules as written for Dungeons and Dragons 5e with raw (unearthed arcana) material in our homebrew world of Austea. Follow us on twitter @RulesAsWritten and send your #feedback. Email us at dm@dndraw.com. We'd love to hear from you!

The Dark Dragons Inn - Campaign

Tails from The Dark Dragons Inn is a long-form, serialised, high-fantasy, improv fiction podcast driven at its core by tabletop role-play. Released weekly every Sunday at 10:30AM BST. This feed handles only the main episodes of our campaign. Hosted and Game Mastered by Ray Stevens, accompanied by his players, Tom (Erbak), Liz (Tobe), Vinny (Mhurren) and Nina (Myx), with occasional guest appearances, he invites you into a world both familiar and strange, these adventures take place in a home-brew alternate version of the Forgotten Realms. The core cast of Tails from The Dark Dragons Inn​ features a diverse group of players who've come together from across the country to tell the shared tale of “The Scales of Justice”, a band of heroes (though some would call them mercenaries). Our story is told through improv and tabletop role-play, however, for the purposes of the show, much of the mechanical aspects of this are removed, cutting the fuss and leaving the story and character interactions behind. What starts as a simple 'muscle for hire' job, brings the party together to aid a city under siege and the civilians within. A cult, known only as the Cult of the Dragon, seek to unleash Chaos in the world and as our heroes learn of their plans, the race is on to put a stop to their ambition. In classic high-fantasy fashion, the overarching problem of the plot is seemingly almost insurmountable in scale and by extension, each character is dealing with their own personal goals and issues which we develop throughout the show. You can find out more about the characters, the world and what's going on through our website https://tailsfromthedarkdragonsinn.co.uk. If you have any questions, feedback or suggestions for the show; please feel free to contact us on twitter @DarkDragonsInn

It is all they have known. It has become a part of them. In darkness they live. They endure. They survive. All save a cadre of strangers from the Grey Wolf Company.

They chase the hope of life in the darkness rather than wait for it in the false light. Follow their journey as as told in The Chronicles of the Grey Wolves.
