About Axe of the Blood God

Hearken to the tale of Kat Bailey, Nadia Oxford, and Eric Van Allen -- three bards who podcasted about RPGs while nestled under the wing of a powerful lord. Alas, the seasons changed, and the lord withdrew his wing, leaving the lute-strumming ladies (and now one gentleman) to fend for themselves against winter's bite.

"Nay, curse this," they said. "Let us pack up our podcast and travel down the road. We'll have backgammon. And consorts."


For seven years, the Axe of the Blood God podcast has delivered consistently awesome RPG content. We gather at the proverbial tavern to chat about everything going on with RPGs big and small, eastern and western. Axe of the Blood God dissects current events, reviews hot new RPGs, shines a spotlight on the smaller, more easily-missed titles, and conducts in-depth retrospectives.

If you're already a fan, you're probably familiar with Axe of the Blood God's deep dives, like The Top 25 RPGs of All Time and The RPG Console Quest, a series that looks at the best RPGs on consoles going back to the ColecoVision. And if you're not a fan, hail to thee, stranger. Come sit and talk with us. Help yourself to a tankard and a taco.

We were thrust out of USgamer at the end of 2020, and thankfully Axe of the Blood God followed us outside like a faithful (but precariously tamed) beast. We want to stick with Axe of the Blood God, and we want to stick with you, dear RPG fans. All we need from you is a few gold pieces. A fistful of gil. A pocketful of zenny. Whatever you can spare.

In exchange for your coin, Axe of the Blood God is expanding to include a whole slew of new podcasts and other rewards! Fear not, the Axe of the Blood God podcast you know and presumably love will remain a free, weekly release. Still, we hope you will consider tossing a coin to your podcasters. (We make no apologies for the preceding reference.)
$5,668.56 of $6,000 per month
If we reached $6000, we'll celebrate by having Kat, Nadia, and Eric take part in a one-shot tabletop campaign hosted by a guest DM that will be turned into a podcast available to all listeners!
