Thursday Knights Live Tabletop Roleplaying

A weekly game of Dungeons & Dragons (and other roleplaying games). Our group focuses on telling truly collaborative stories with a heavy focus on character development and roleplaying. This is the podcast version of the live video show broadcast on Thursdays on our Twitch channel. Each season is a new long-term campaign played in a different roleplaying system. Feel free to jump to the beginning of the latest season if you want to catch up to watch live on Twitch, or start at the beginning of Season 1 if you want to experience all that Thursday Knights has to offer! Season 1 (1-135) is a complete Dungeons & Dragons 4e campaign coverings character levels 10 through 30. Season 2 (139-147) is a small slice of a campaign played across two different groups using Dungeon World and Star Wars Edge of the Empire systems. Season 3 (148-209) is a complete Dresden Files campaign centered on a fantasy version of modern San Francisco. Season 4 (210 and ongoing) is an ongoing Dungeons & Dragons 5e campaign following a group of characters connected by family, bad dads, and fate.


Episode 4: Arath’s Request

Episode 4 of the Thursday Knights Actual Play podcast is now available!

This is the first gameplay episode of the Paragon tier. Last week, their old friend Arath reunited the characters for one last job together. A year has passed since they last fought side-by-side.

Their task is seemingly simple: Enter an ancient temple now occupied by a cult and destroy the artifact, a crown, within. But all is not as it seems…

Live Video Stream

This week we tried something new: We broadcast a live video stream of the entire session. Many people tuned in, some for a short while, and some for the entire length. We considered it a great success and will make this a regular thing from now on.

For information on how to tune-in and see us live, become a fan on Facebook or follow us on Twitter.

We may offer a download of the recorded video sometime in the future as well.

We are also investigating the possibility of having a second camera that is focused on the tactical map so people can follow along during combat.
