Dungeons and Dubliners Episode 4 – The Great Ravnica Debate
In our campaign recap we discuss the slow descent into madness of Brian's character and by the end of the episode we are left to wonder if this indeed a cry for help from Brian himself as the accumulated years with no new Greyhawk product begin to weigh on him.

Welcome to the first episode of the podcast!
In this episode we establish our nerd credentials and bask in the rise to domination of the Nerds over the Jocks. We give a run down on our home campaign, chat about upcoming and recent releases and Brian and Floody get carried away slightly at the scale of the Dublin Adventurers League. We then realise we are running out of time and quickly review a Dmsguild product. Finally we sign off and go straight to order recording equipment to ensure a much better sound quality for the next episode!
