About Grim & Perilous


Grim & Perilous
 is an actual play and podcast Patreon, brought to you by the creators and developers for tabletop RPGs Powered By ZWEIHÄNDER. Our aim is to provide insight into how grim & perilous tabletop role-playing games are played and developed, and a look at our weekly actual play of ZWEIHÄNDER Grim & Perilous RPG game with creator Daniel D. Fox.

With your support, we’ll give you exclusive access to our weekly actual play sessions of #ZweihanderRPG, a view into how we develop new material for games Powered By ZWEIHÄNDER and share with you tips, tricks and hacks to make your #ZweihanderRPG game more enjoyable. We’ll eventually add other products, such as RADIATOR RPG, and branch out to include new videos as we reach our goals. Finally, we will showcase actual play of other dark fantasy games across the spectrum of the tabletop RPG industry.

Join us as we descend into the madness that is creating, developing and playing a game where we constantly get the rules we made wrong (and have a damn good time doing so).

  • Desperation Point Podcast, every Wednesday at 11am CST
