The Boys Are Back In Town - DnD Podcast w/Penny Arcade, PvP, Kris Straub

Are you ready for some awesome?!  I thought so!  Woot!  I'm a big fan of the podcasts from  Wizards of the Coast both the audio and the video ones. Its always fun to hear about other campaigns and see/hear how other people play the game we love so very much.  Additionally I find that you can usually learn something to better your own player skills or add to your ownDM'ing style from these podcasts.  

The Penny Arcade guys, Gabe and Tycho and Scott Kurtz from PvP along with DM extraordinaire Chris Perkins started it all with their initial audio podcast introducing  the group to DnD 4.0.  Then the second and third seasons featured the same motley crew along with addition of guest star Wil Wheaton.  Wizards then released the widely popular video podcasts with The Robot Chicken Writers, Dan Milano, Zeb Wells, Tom Root, Doug Goldstein, and Kevin Schinick  playing DnD 4.0 again DM'd by Chris Perkins.  Chris Perkins even added an awesome video commentary to each of the podcasts and revealed some of his own secrets on how to be a better DM!

Well its finally here Season 4 of the audio podcasts featuring Gabe and Tycho from Penny Arcade with Scott Kurtz from PvP and joining them as guest star this time out is Kris Straub from chainsawsuit.com !   This time however Tycho takes the reins as DM and provides the background and adventure in the newly released DnD 4.0 version of the Dark Sun Campaign Setting.  Thri-kreen, Gladiatorial Combat, and Sand everywhere!  So have a listen, as its a great start to what I'm sure is going to be a very entertaining series of podcasts.
