Season 11 - Episode 6 - It Just Keeps Happening

Dante definitely meant to stab Gorlock. Grot doesn't realise this. So that's another great moment in the most awkward friendship. Poor, poor, Gorlock.

Grot and Dante have got a funfair to investigate. It will definitely be a subtle affair, that we know. And no one will get stabbed.


Season 11 - Episode 05 - Kicked Out The Bar

This gets awkward. I can't say too much about it, but it is going to get really awkward.  Grot has a son now...and if anything happened to him then he would be furious.  So, so furious.

Season 11 - Episode 4 - A Meal, Drink and Dancing

Grot and Dante are investigating a small innocent town. There is something up, but uncovering it is going to take subtlety, care and attention. So this is the perfect team for the job.

Season 11 - Episode 03 - A Dairy Tale

Grot and Dante have decided that this plan, to subtley infiltrate an evil cult, needs them to take on a ward and befriend a family of farmers. This will of course never go wrong, and will never become stupid or complicated. IT JUST WON'T HAPPEN.

Season 11 - Episode 02 - Roll Up Roll Up

Thanks for all the kind comments about Season 11. 

Grot and Dante are back, and they have learnt how to rob people (though it's an expensive past time). And now they have a new victim/friend Rafaq. Surely being friends with a cursed knight and a Bugbear executioner can't bring instability to his life.



Season 11 - Episode 01 - Crime Does Pay

We run down the history of Grot and Dante, and then they work out how to get to a small village along a country road. That is the only challenge...and yet it somehow becomes something much, much more.


Thanks to all our listeners for their patience recently. I know the podcast has been a bit more chaotic, and I can only thank you for sticking with us. 


I hope you enjoy what I think is one of the best starts to a season we've had.

Bonus Episode - 2018 Dragonmeet - Episode 2

This sounds better. After 10 minutes anyway. Thanks to all those who took part at Dragonmeet this year. When I have more time I will write some proper thanks and give shout outs on Twitter. Real life needs to chill out for a bit.

Bonus Episode - 2018 Dragonmeet - Episode 1

We are back in the podcastzone at Dragonmeet. The recording sounds awful because I am an idiot. This was a string of bad moves in recording in December. There is a longer apology in the podcast intro. Sorry.


The situation this year is a lot of fun. Mike Technique is selling a house, and each group of players get a discount if they collect some gems from inside. An inprobable and ridiculous scenario. So each group must navigate this mansion. However any mess and chaos they leave behind must be sorted by the groups that follow them.  How fascinating!


This year we are joined by

Season 10 - Episode 32 - Will he croak?

We are in the final battle and Gorrus is having a tough time. A very tough time. Enough talking I suspect. You need to hear what occurs next. Pray to Kord.

Season 10 - Episode 31 - From the Jaws of Defeat

And we get into the thick of it. There is no glory without fear of death. And we are scared of dying this week. This episode was a double parter. So it does end abruptly. Sorry it is late. A busy boy.
