I am thinking about trying some of the ones in this list that I have not heard. Just to help narrow the field, do any of you know of any of these using GURPS? I am interested in learning the system better. I have played a few sessions with friends but I think more familiarity with the rules would make for a smoother game. I, of course, could just sit around and read the rule books but sometimes it is helpful to see it in action.

I have yet to find a single actual play that I like. Maybe someone could point me in the right direction. From the ones I have tried listening to a few things bother me. Over dramatic GM and players trying to do voice acting, bad accents, not fallowing the actual rules of the game, the players don't know the rules to the GM is constantly explaining them, and over all bad audio quality. If someone could point me to a live play that does not have these issues I am all ears.
Try Glass Cannon Podcast. They have a studio and pro gear (audio is fine in early episodes but they quickly upgrade to crystal clear stuff). They do their best to follow the rules and it's just a spectacular show. Glass Cannon Podcast is their fantasy pod using Pathfinder rules, or Androids & Aliens is space fantasy using Starfinder. Both are on Spotify.

Checknout any of the Glass Cannon, they are pathfinder but tell great story, excellent audio.

I like to watch The unexpectables which can be found on YouTube on Takahata101 channel or live on Twitch at TheUnexpectables. I also enjoy Nat19's Vestage of Ophiuchus campain which can be found on Youtube at Nat19 or live on twitch at Nat19Official. I recomend them both for their interesting characters, plotlines, and original worlds made by there respective DM's and players.

I'm looking for RPG shows that edit and trim each episode to pure gameplay, instead of showing the raw stream footage. I am extremely interested to hear any recommendations!

Currently, I'm aware of:
-Encounter Party
-Dimension 20
-Dwarven Moss
-Not Another DnD Podcast


Any other good ones you beautiful folks can suggest? Thanks in advance!

So is the only way to know who won and what the ranking looks like to listen to the podcast? No listing in this thread? That seems kind of anticlimactic, to say the least.
Its been on the front page since December 26th.


Although the irony of somebody looking for a list of podcasts not wanting to listen to a podcast highly amuses me.

Nah, it's not that. I was just wondering...AND, to be honest, I don't like the idea of "hiding" information behind a certain, fixed product. I also think that thematically, people tend to look for the information at the place where they saw it first...so it makes sense to put the final list into the original thread as well... ymmv, of course.

The struggle is real.
