Role Playing Public Radio presents a weekly Actual Play podcast of tabletop role playing game sessions. We play a wide variety of RPGs, from popular classics like Dungeons and Dragons and Call of Cthulhu to indie hits like Monsters and Other Childish Things and Don’t Rest Your Head. Some of our episodes are stand-alone scenarios and we also feature an ongoing 4e Dungeons and Dragons campaign called “The New World’. Give us a listen if you want to hear a great gaming crew fight evil, try outrageous plans to save the day and joke about it.
