Dice For Brains is an amazing Star Wars RPG actual play podcast, gamemastered by Ross Rockafellow using Fantasy Flight Games' Force and Destiny rules.

Dice For Brains

What makes the podcast stand out from other actual play podcasts is threefold: it is recorded well, crisp and clear voices of the players with hardly any disruptive external noises. Secondly, it sounds like the games have been edited professionally which presents the action very clearly to the listeners. Finally, the gameplay is extremely story-oriented whereby plot points AND dice result intepretations are sometimes repeated to ensure listeners do not get lost in the story. The players, like the professional actors they are, annunciate very clearly and speak out loud the action they are about to do and periodically what their player characters think of.

This makes for an extremely dramatic actual play record of the game sessions being played, which are also enhanced by original music and sound effects.

Listen to their podcast starting from the first episode here.

Recently I was asked to design a t-shirt for the Dice For Brains Teepublic merchandise store! The first design was released here recently. Click on the link here to view and/or purchase it.

The t-shirt was seen on Twitter recently, worn by @karohemd: 

Blew my mind. Anyway here's a close up view of the flame-rumped kido bird:

Thanks! I have been always on a lookout for an actual play podcast I can share with younger folk like my son and his cousins. DFB is the first one that really pops as an ambassador for the role-playing hobby.
