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 2 – Free

A well-earned festival erupts in celebration of the return of our adventurers. Individually, we explore the evolving origins of Tamasin, Chyna, Merkesh, Ranquess and Fa'en. While Hilrad turns his attention to defining the ancient evil that now stirs beneath Hillsfar, we are left to ponder the success of their rescue mission and the consequences unknown.

In the meantime, Tamasin, Life Cleric of Selune, makes a long-awaited acquaintance with her mother-figure while the sisters of Selune prepare the young acolyte to take a spectral journey only very few have been gifted to take; all in the interest of discovering her missing past.

Merkesh and Chyna finally come to terms with how deep the pursuant evil runs for the young debutante and Ranquess solidifies his bond with the rescuees from Hillsfar - both his Netherese brethren and perhaps a new romantic interest.

Old kinships are reforged in test and new connections are considered in the wake of short-lived reverie, while something cold, dark and ancient threatens both friend and foe beneath the restless sewers of Hillsfar
