Media Spotlight: Pain in the Dice

Welcome back to our media spotlight blog, with this week’s light shining brightly on Pain in the Dice!

The Spotlight

Pain in the Dice is a podcast you may be new to, though the hosts are likely familiar names, hailing from the popular Systematic Understanding of Everything, Mage: The Podcast, and The Story Told shows. Chazz, Terry, Monica, and Josh come together routinely to discuss some excellent RPG-related topics, from reviews (including recent ones of Hundred Devils Night Parade and Heirs to the Shogunate) to delves into the industry (RPG distribution, Kickstarter, etc.)

For an insightful and enjoyable listen, seek out Pain in the Dice wherever you listen to your favourite podcasts, or right here on Apple Podcasts:

Where I Read…

And now for something completely different, as we look at a few of the active “WIR” threads over on, where folks read through our books chapter by chapter and give them deep reviews. Live currently, we have a thread for:

They Came from Beyond the Grave!

Mummy: The Curse 2nd Edition

Trinity Continuum: Aberrant

Chronicles of Darkness

So if you’re more inclined toward reading your reviews, this is a fine place to go.
