Brand New Actual Play Podcast Brings Together Brightest Stars from UK & US Audio Fiction


The premiere of the all-new actual play podcast Realms of Peril & Glory (RPG for Short) brings together an all-star cast from the UK and US Audio Fiction. The series has guest players from some of the biggest fiction podcasts in the world. Some notable names include Beth Eyre (Wooden Overcoats), Sasha Sienna (The Magnus Archives), Sean Howard (Alba Salix), Felix Trench (Wooden Overcoats), Beth Crane (We Fix Space Junk) and Ella Watts (The Orphans).

“This has been a year in the making, a huge work of passion for so many creators,” explains producer and show co-creator Zachary Fortais-Gomm. “We were craving a show that brought together tightly told stories using Table Top Role Playing Game Systems and cinematic sound design and scoring, so we set out to bring it to life..”

“This isn’t just another Dungeons and Dragons podcast, we’re bringing together some of the greatest voices in the audio fiction space to tell incredible tales and entertain an audience of thousands,” explains co-creator James Barbarossa. “We are telling hilarious and heartfelt stories like you’ve never heard on a Dungeons and Dragons podcast” The team was blown away by the calibre of storytelling brough to the table by the roster top-tier of talent.

Co-Creators Zachary Fortais-Gomm and James Barbarossa are the masterminds behind the fan-favourite science fiction podcast, The Orphans and have brought their creative spark to this all new actual play experience. “The medium is wildly flexible,” shares Zachary. “We wanted to test the limits of TTRPGs systems like Dungeons and Dragons. How many different stories can you tell? How many different genres can you cover? We’ve recorded everything from science fiction and high fantasy, to horror and romantic comedy.”

Realms of Peril & Glory has come out of the gate swinging with three episodes launching on day one, and then carrying on weekly from there. The show combines sweeping sound design, dramatic scores and hilarious improvisation to create epic stories. The first season, Vael, is an epic mystery thriller where our heroes have to uncover the truth behind a string of disappearances in the city before it’s too late and the unthinkable happens. Vael will be releasing an episode every Wednesday until the thrilling finale on November 24th 2021!
