What to Watch on Saving Throw?

April 30, 2021 Dungeon Master 137 No Comments

Dom Zook, a bearded man, cautiously saying "hey there"Hi! I’m Dom. I realize many new folks may not know me. I run the channel and am basically behind all the content here in one way or another. Hello!

One of the most common questions I get is from TTRPG fans looking for something new to watch. Saving Throw has produced a metric ton(ne) of RPG-related content. Although we’ve been producing content for over 7 years, many folks still don’t know what we make! So I thought I’d give a breakdown separated by preferences! I also give a description of the show for each entry so you know what you’re getting!

And just know these represent less than half the content we’ve ever produced!! We have stuff for all types because, frankly, we want to show that there’s an RPG out there for everyone’s taste! If you’re looking for something in particular just leave a comment below or check out our Wiki where you can quickly search by system now as well! Now..

Wildcards POC GM Jordan Caves-Callarman is a master of the macabre and mysterious, and he brings that to each session be it set in the Weird West or a backwater Texas college town. If you like Deadwood, Buffy, and things that go bump in the night this one’s for you.
