Fate and Fables is a Fantasy Roleplaying Podcast set in the lands of Drake and Hellion. The podcast is made up of a series of short campaigns starring daring heroes played by professional actors, improvisors, and comedians!
The podcast leans heavy on the side of roleplaying rather than very efficient optimum strategy. Fewer grinding dungeon crawls and more high stakes political intrigue at a Hobgoblin/Elf peace treaty.
Listen as skilled performers navigate the perils of smuggling dwarvern refugees out from their dystopian mountainhome, or a young wizard returning to his oppressive academy to face his ruthless father. The players are encouraged to min max their characters for narrative payoffs.
Chapter's of each Fable are released twice a week for several months of the year. Chapter go live at around 2:00am GMT Saturday.
