Welcome to Gelatinous Cube! A podcast about creating great encounters in Dungeons and Dragons and other tabletop roleplaying games.

We're Rosie and Adam, siblings and hard working dungeon masters. Every episode we get forensic on an RPG encounter: why it works, where it could - or did - go wrong and what's cool about it. Whether you play narrative or sandbox, OSR or 5e we want to give you useful tools for thinking about your game.
