The CAMPAIGN podcast is an actual play podcast where a small, consistent group of Chicago nerds get together to record role-playing games.It is hosted by Kat Kuhl.

After a lengthy explanation of human behavior and imperial tactics to the Verpine, the boys take a moment to relax before heading off to face Inquisitor Sadet. THE DUNGEON DOME CARD GAME Back here!
The boys pester the Verpine to give them dogs to eat. Oh, also they deliver them world shattering evidence of imperial cruelty that could provoke a civil war. Tryst and Leenik seem pretty hung up on the dog thing tho.
We play Hearts by That’s No Moon rules, which means, I think, that we just win now.
This is the third fight that’s taken place in this gymnasium this arc. The boys really liked this set piece, huh?
