The Dark Dragons Inn is creating Audio Drama Podcasts

per month
Tails from the Dark Dragons Inn started life as a humble game of D&D played online between good friends who, spread across the country, wanted to tell a story together.
It has since evolved into a high quality Audio Drama driven by improv and TableTop role playing. This is no longer restricted to just D&D! We use a variety of systems, mechanics and plot to spin a tale that is spanning systems.

We want our show to be as accessible, inclusive and diverse as possible and together, that's easily within reach!

We release new episodes of our main campaign every Sunday but moving forward, we're looking to release even more great content with guests from a variety of other podcasts playing all kinds of systems, featuring guests from all walks of life because we firmly believe that TableTop roleplaying games and the community that lives around them are for everyone.

These will be released under our 'SideQuests' banner and come out every other week on alternate Wednesdays.

Want to be a part of the show? Check out our patreon tiers for more info!

Our first major goal is to make our show easier to access for those in the Deaf and Hard-of-hearing communities! More details in the goals section.

Goals
$3 of $300 per month
We recently paid for the manual transcription of our entire first season to make it accessible for the hard of hearing and Deaf communities. 

I had intended, to produce these personally from the start, however with the sheer volume of work the show has become, this isn't viable. That said, I don't want anyone who wants to join in to be missing out on the fun!

At this Goal, we can afford to have a transcriber on retainer and ensure that every episode is transcribed for same-week release!
