As always, the podcasts are divided into two categories: ACTUAL PLAY and TALK. Actual Play podcasts are podcasts where the podcasters play an actual tabletop RPG for your listening enjoyment. Talk podcasts include interviews, reviews, discussion, opinion, advice and news.

Hall of Fame
Last year's winners were Tablestory (Actual Play) and The Grognard Files (Talk). These two podcasts joined The Adventure Zone, and The Good Friends of Jackson Elias in the Hall of Fame, and are not eligible to enter this year.

How it works
This is the nomination thread. In this thread, anybody can nominate their favourite tabletop RPG podcast in each of two categories (Actual Play, and Talk).

Once the nominations close, they will be compiled and the full (valid) list presented in a poll for public voting.

The Top 10 in each category will be announced first on Morrus' Unofficial Tabletop RPG Talk, and then later posted here to the website.

Rules for valid nominations:
  • podcasts, not videos
  • must have released at least 3 new episodes in 2020
  • the main focus must be tabletop RPGs
  • must not be your own podcast
  • must include a link to the podcast’s web page
  • if a group puts out multiple podcasts, they are combined into one nomination
  • say why
  • podcasts in the Hall of Fame are no longer eligible
  • one nomination per category per person only

Nominations open for two weeks, until Sunday 29th November. The poll will come shortly thereafter. The results will fittingly initially be announced in our podcast and posted here as an article later.

Nominate your favourite by posting in the replies. You only get to nominate one in each category (Talk, Actual Play). Make sure to check the rules above or your nomination may not valid.

Play: Rolling Misadventures

Why: They are awesome - constantly playing something fresh and funny. They collaborate with other podcasts to bring on guests and just have an improv filled time welcoming people from all types of casts. You never get the same show twice.

Actual Play: The Faeforge Academy
The Faeforge Academy is a dnd podcast. It's so much fun to listen to - I especially like all the music and sound effects and just getting to experience the mystery of the setting. I also love that they live by their philosophies, both in game and irl. f. ex. They want to and make sure to tell their story together, without laying the responsibility for that on a particular person and it's very apparent, in the best possible way. Their podcast is magical and soothing and also my personal favourite :)

Who could want more than billowing hilltop? A sublime mix somewhere between Twin Peaks and Alan Partridge. Obviously with orcs.

Podcast: The Bardic College (Cthulhu in Cairo)

Cthulhu in Cairo is a unique, chilling homebrew story that seemlessly combines real-world events with Lovecraftian horror. The Keeper is an engaging storyteller who has written a campaign that takes the players all over the globe-and through time. This growing podcast also has a Patreon with bonus episodes and behind the scenes interviews with the players.

Every episode feels like you’re sitting down to game with a close-knit group of friends. The only thing missing is the snacks...

Play: Side Character Quest


Why? The host created this wonderful and whimsical concept of instead of DM-ing for main characters in an arc, he does shorter arcs with different players as different side characters. It's entertaining, clever, silly, and easy to listen to both for people who are seasoned players(or listeners) and people who are newer to the scene alike. One of my all time favorite gaming podcasts.

Best Actual Play: Side Character Quest
www.SideCharacterQuest.com

Why? It’s a choose your own adventure right from the beginning! The DM takes multiple side characters on short quests that all come together to unravel the overall story. You can listen to one arc or figure out the answers to all your burning questions by listening to it all. I just love it so much!! Mostly plays D&D but also uses other RPG on different arcs!

Roll Britannia
Actual Play
These guys are great, since episode one I have been hooked. 5 guys, limited knowledge but lots of fun as they work through a homebrew world of D&D 5e.

Talk: Miskatonic University Podcast. Great blend of RPG news, interviews, and analysis of Lovecraftian and other horror/sci-fi rpgs. The hosts are very active on their Discord Server and maintain a welcoming, supportive environment that embraces players, GM’s, writers, artists, and curious newcomers regardless of experience, beliefs, or background.

The Bardic College (Cthulhu in Cairo)
Category: Real Play

The show has a great cast, a homebrew story that is funny, thought-provoking, and still maintains that scary/spooky Cthulhu factor, and a Keeper who you can tell loves what he does!

I recommend this show to anyone looking to support an up and coming podcast!!

Category: talk. Morrus' Unofficial Tabletop RPG Talk. I look forward to it every week. It is my main source of news for ttrpg. The interviews are always good, too.

The Bardic College (Cthulhu in Cairo)
Category: Real Play

Currently running Call of Cthulhu and Vampire (with a DnD campaign on the way), both are excellently done and have wildly different tones despite having mostly the same players.

I'm going to skip reminding that official nominations require links to the podcast. Morrus probably knows where to find out more about this pod...

Mage: The Podcast
Mage: The Podcast

Category: Talk
Why: Mage: The Ascension is a fascinating RPG and there is a lot that can be said about it, both helpful and not. Mage: The Podcast does a great job of presenting the game in a coherent way and discussing Mage and how it relates to the World of Darkness as a whole.
