(Copied from RPG.net and the OotS forum.)
RPGMP3.com is a website overflowing with tabletop RPG Actual Play podcasts. Since 2004 it has received contributions from multiple gaming groups spread through-out the world:
- The UK (Bradford Adventuring Guild, Whartson Hall Gamers)
- The US (Texan Gamers, Thistledown Gamers)
- Canada (Yorkton Gaming Guild)
- Not to mention several groups of people who're recording their online games via Skype or Google Hangouts (RPGMP3 Professionals, Pantsless Gamers), letting Swedes and Belgians team up with the Americans and Brits to fight orcs in 10' X 10' rooms.
Want to get a close experience of what a game plays like, before you spend your hard-earned money on it?
Do you need to sate your gaming itch, but can't find anyone in your local area who's interested?
Are you looking for a friendly, troll-free forum where you can discuss RPGs, gaming and sundry nerdy hobbies?
If any of those reasons sound enticing to you, or if you're just looking for quality podcast entertainment, visit RPGMP3.com.
The site has recently been relaunched in a shiny new version, with a crisp and clean exterior, and even more room for Actual Play mp3s and the ensuing discussions about the games, and gaming in general.
The list of games that have been played and recorded is as long as your arm - and several games have been played by two or more groups, giving you several different perspectives on the same game:
- Apocalypse World
- Best Friends
- Call of Cthulhu
- Classroom Deathmatch
- Cold City
- Dogs in the Vineyard
- Dragon Age
- Dream Park
- Dresden Files
- Duck Trooper
- Dust Devils
- Empire of the Petal Throne
- Everyone is John
- Feng Shui
- Forgotten Futures
- HERO System
- Houses of the Blooded
- Jaws of the Six Serpents
- My Life With Master
- Point Blank
- Risus: Supervillains
- Santa's Soldiers
- Sorcerer: Cyberpunk
- Swashbucklers of the 7 Skies
- The Mountain Witch
- The Secret Lives of Gingerbread Men
- Truth & Justice
- Tunnels & Trolls (both vanilla and Monsters! Monsters!)
- Unisystem: All Flesh Must Be Eaten
- Warhammer Fantasy Roleplay (1E and 2E)
- Wilderness of Mirrors
In addition to all these classic games - new, old and Indie darlings - the site also boasts a complete play-through of the renowned World's Largest Dungeon, several homebrew games like World of Tropis and S.L.I.D.E.Ways, and an excellent D&D scenario inspired by the audio on the site: Tomb of Haggemoth.
And, of course, mainstays like:
- D&D (from Red Box through 2nd. edition, over 3E and 3.5 to 4th edition and then some)
- Pathfinder (Jade Regent, Carrion Crown, Shattered Star, Serpent's Skull, Kingmaker, Curse of the Crimson Throne)
- Savage Worlds (Sundered Skies, Necessary Evil, Rippers, Pirates of the Spanish Main, Rocket Nazis on the Orient Express, Monster Hunters, Call of Cthulhu: Delta Green, etc.)
One of the very best, and most entertaining, gaming groups on the site is the Yorkton Gamer Guild. As an appetizer for all the audio gaming goodness that awaits you at RPGMP3.com, this thread will present you with snippets and anecdotes from their take on Monte Cook's Dragon's Delve.

PS: I'm a fan of the site in general and the YGGernauts in particular, but haven't actually participated in any of their recordings; the choice and selection of quotes in this thread purely reflects my own immature sense of humour. Pre-emptive apologies all round.
PPS: This thread may contain SPOILERS from the Dragon's Delve campaign. It is also likely to be quite sweary, and occasionally downright offensive. None of the remarks are meant to be taken seriously, and besides, some of the players probably have learning disabilities, or Tourettes.
