Where and How to Watch or Listen to People Play Dungeons and Dragons Online
This is a list of videos or podcasts where people are actually playing D&D, Pathfinder RPG, or other tabletop RPGs. I expect this list to evolve and grow over time.
Actual Play Videos/Podcasts
Advantage is an actual-play, fifth-edition Dungeons & Dragons audio drama, focusing on storytelling and character development. The cast plays a long-form campaign set in a home-brewed world, called the Cusp. The narrative is thoughtful, and tends toward heavier side of the spectrum - a style we have found to be very rewarding. Part of the Darkmore Podcast Network.
The Adventure Zone
One of our favorites. They had a long running D&D podcast, then now have switched to shorter story arcs featuring different games.
