A D&D Podcast.


Welcome and well met, weary DnDpodcast listeners! You have reached the home of what we hope you will consider one of the best DnD podcasts running. Some of you may be wondering who we are. Well, our name says it all, of course. 

We are the New Crits on the Block, a group of six friends who enjoy creating immersive stories about worlds that never were. We are not your average gang of elves, dwarves, and halflings, of course. We aim to roll natural twenties for fun, and we hope you will join us. No fumbles here. We want to be the best Dungeons and Dragons podcast you have ever heard!

We are New Crits on the Block.

Who We Are

The best D&D podcasts thrive or fail because of their groups. Make no mistake. Our ranks might not include Vin Diesel or Dame Judi Dench, but ours is nevertheless a hearty party of adventurers and heroes.

Kristy plays Leaf, a Halfling druid with the drive to survive. Ben portrays Katon who knows injustice when he smells it; boy, does he hate that smell! Joe is the mind behind Baedram, who never met a kobold he could not beat in a good old wrist wrestle (well, except that one time, but no one talks about that). Matt sometimes gives Aewyn initiative rolls greater than ten. Finally, Brian's character Borel is guaranteed to make a lasting impression with his arcane wit and spells. 

Behind this stalwart party is world builder extraordinaire, Dungeon Master Jake. He serves up slices of action, excitement, and humor in the most diverting way possible. Jake plays a cast of hundreds of non-player characters and monsters who show up, interact, and maybe leave with their teeth intact! 

Not all the characters will walk away from every session in this DnD podcast. Sometimes you have to wonder who will survive and what will be left of them? Worst of all, which of this week's fumbles might return from beyond the grave, and what parts will they be missing? You have to listen to learn!


Questions? We got answers!

Dungeons and Whatnow?

Dungeons and Dragons is a roleplaying game of high fantasy. It is a board game for the mind, a way to collaborate on high fantasy stories. Characters explore worlds touched by magic, peopled by ancient races such as elves and dwarves, populated with all kinds of ferocious monsters, driven by dire plots, and resting places for glorious treasure hordes. Think J.R.R. Tolkien's Lord of the Rings and add in a dollop of The Witcher for good measure. Then, sprinkle a little She-Ra and the Princesses of Power or the otherworldliness of Trollhunters on top. You get the picture. It is a tasty, tasty sundae of strange worlds, swords and sorcery, and a triple scoop of fun.


All the cool kids are playing it. 


No really. Did you know Vin Diesel plays Dungeons and Dragons? He does. He totally does. He even taught Dame Judi Dench how to play. Cool kids don't come much cooler than those two!


Do We Have Your Attention?
