Charisma Check – Dungeons and Dragons (D&D 5e) PodcastA Speaking Common Actual Play DnD Audio Drama

Charisma Check is a Dungeons and Dragons 5e actual play podcast that follows six improv theatre friends trying our best to deliver a truly narrative-driven D&D podcast experience. With a focus on dramatic collaborative storytelling, the Charisma Check Podcast takes place in the Forgotten Realms setting of Faerun that, while story-oriented, is fun, big-hearted and explores the dynamics of adventure, companionship, death-defying odds and sacrifice.

Our actual play D&D podcast is the culmination of our love for this game and the best stories that are often the result – it is also 100% ad-free. We don’t make money on the podcast, we get paid when you decide to join us for the adventure. Please help us spread the word on your social media of choice. A 5-star review on iTunes is probably the best way to give us props!

Season 1, Episode 1 – A Hero’s Welcome

After breaking Ranquess free from a Red Plume garrison near the walls of Hillsfar, Tamasin, Chyna, Merkesh, Fa’en and their liberated sorcerer friend must find a way to break back into the walled city to prevent the execution of Ranquess’ fellow Shadovar agents, who face certain death at the hands of Torin Nomerthal.

A painstakingly calculated incursion to the city proves successful with the help of Harper sympathizers on the inside, but they have unearthed something sinister in the catacombs and sewers below. After narrowly escaping death at the hands of this ancient evil, the companions and their freed prisoners have made their way, safely, to the berth of The Libertine and a planned extraction staged mere miles from the coast of the walled stronghold of the tyrant lord Nomerthal.

This is where the story of Charisma Check begins…
