About the Podcast

October 29, 2017

Pretending With Dice is a Tabletop/Pen&Paper RPG actual-play podcast, hosted and game-mastered by Adam Johnston (@ajheretic666 on Twitter). Episodes release every two weeks on a Thursday.

We plan on making our way through various different RPG systems, with a rotating group of players, changing with the game system. We'll be playing each different system in a story-arc format; doing a complete story in each system, before changing to a different system and group of players.

Our first story-arc, 'The Children of Erivale' is made up of our first 6 episodes. We're playing using Dungeons and Dragons 5th Edition, with a group consisting of Eden Penketh (@MonkeyMagicEden) as the human wizard Pronce, Mark Button (@MarkBDesign) as the halfling fighter Bork Mantut, and Jason Coles (@EnotheStrife) as the elven rogue Enothe.

Our second story-arc, 'The Relics Of Meilar' began with Episode 8, and we pick right up with the same group as in the first arc, continuing our adventures using Dungeons and Dragons 5th Edition. It's made up of Episodes 8 and 9, and then picks up again at Episode 14.

We played Star Trek Adventures with our friends from Spocklight:The Audio Podcast, This crossover is Episodes 10-13.
