I’ve recently begun playing Dungeons & Dragons (tabletop, not online). I am very familiar with fantasy stories (books and movies), speaking while at a table (impressed?), and NES/SNES/Genesis era “quest” style video games (Legend of Zelda, Mystic Quest, Beyond Oasis, Shadow Run, etc), but had largely ignored D&D. While there is a fair amount of “language” in the podcast, I have found The Dungeon Cast to be very helpful and entertaining while learning the game. I subscribed on Podcast Addict, but their episodes are also available on YouTube and iTunes. They aren’t playing the game (but do roll some characters, talk about a lot of scenarios, and even play some excerpts from games), they focus on class, race, monster, and technical breakdowns of the game – which is a great way me personally to receive information. Check ’em out!
