Stupid Wizards is an Actual Play Dungeons & Dragons Podcast

Join in every other Monday where Drew Burton, Derek Dix, Josh Matney, and Elizabeth Rein work through some of tabletop roleplaying's hardest challenges such as the reproductive systems of butterflies, where and where not to park your horse, and the intricacies of dog adoption in the nation of Alaria. Stupid Wizards Actual People is an improv roleplaying podcast currently playing a Dungeons & Dragons 5th edition campaign.

A great tragedy has struck the Church of Selûne in the city of Trask and "renowned" monster hunters Kellen (Josh Matney) and Vincent (Derek Dix) Greybane have been given the job of solving the case of the midnight massacre. They are aided in their investigation by the mysterious life-like Warforged, Willow (Elizabeth Rein), who has deep connections to the Church of Selûne. Our Dungeon Master Drew Burton leads and corrals this gang of gumshoes as they work their way through the nation of Alaria in search of answers.
