Revival: A Dungeons and Dragons Real-Play Podcast
Revival 20logo

A portal is opened to 'The Rock' and a civilization of magic and myth is introduced to an inhospitable world without the basic building block of life, mana. Our open world game takes place sixty years after the first boots landed on The Rock and follows Elias Adelhelm, Jeron Thalitak, Gorg'rek "John" Bricksmasher, and Dr. Patton Normstrom as they traverse this new world.

Join LetMeTellYouAbout host Tad Becker and his friends Daniel, Michael, Matt, and Tim as they explore the world of 'The Rock' in a pseudo-future post-apocalyptic America tabletop semi-serious-but-still-comedic RPG.

    Revival: Fools Cut I accidentally edited the wrong episode. Instead of wasting it, here's a spruced up version of the Revival In The Raw episode.

    DM Workshop: Building a One-Shot

    Tad and Dan from Revival: A Dungeons and Dragons Realplay Podcast are back for some DM Tips and Tricks in another DM Workshop. This time we're building a One-Shot adventure from a the ground up. We're starting with some vague ideas and a half baked plot to show how to create the framework for a great session.

    66 - Revival in the Raw

    There was some interest in less stringently edited episodes of Revival (a dungeons and dragons realplay podcast) and I thought this might be a good opportunity to try it out. This episode was light on story and more us goofing as we went through a tough combat encounter. I'll be doing a quick recap of the important parts of this episode at the start of episode 67 so you can 100% skip this if you wish and not miss anything important.
