If you play Dungeons & Dragons (especially B/X) then you need to be listening to Tale Of The Manticore, the story where “Chaos rolls.” Specifically, you need to listen all the way through 76 episodes to the finale of Season 1. Why? Because even though the show is unrelentingly awesome from start to finish (well, except for maybe that April Fool episode), the finale is exquisite.
No spoilers from me. Go listen.
I’ve spoken about ToTM on my podcast before. I’ve interviewed the show’s creator, Jon, and discussed what the show is all about and how it came to be. We’ve even played a duet GM-less game together and talked about solo gaming. It’s not a surprise that I was going to enjoy this finale. But, oh my, seriously… best end of level boss fight ever.
Tale of the Manticore is a hybrid between a dark fantasy audio drama and a solo D&D RPG. Go check it out now.
