Storytelling Breakdown is a podcast deep dive into the way our favorite films, shows, books, games, and more reach us in all sorts of ways. Ben Clemmer and Caleb Meyer, hosts and co-founders of the show, began this pop culture audio adventure recorded in Fort Wayne, Indiana in 2019. Storytelling Breakdown debuted in September of 2020 with a six episode first season featuring deep dives into the world of Batman, Spider-Man, Planet of the Apes, Star Wars, and the Hall of Heroes. Season two ran from February to December of 2021 with eleven episodes dedicated to everything from medical dramedies to running role-playing games. The third season of Storytelling Breakdown brought with it some changes to the team. Stephen Stachofsky and Larissa Whitaker joined as hosts, with each one already leading episodes on The Godfather and James Gunn. Now, with a new look and expanded team, Storytelling Breakdown is still a place where we can explore everything we love about the stories that make us who we are.

Adventurers Assemble Campaign Diary Episode 003: Greed & Debt Storytelling Breakdown

Sometimes so go the dice, so goes the story. We pick back up with our quintet of adventurers in the city of Murktown. Ada, Delilah, Gorg, Nerine, and Siv have successfully defeated the Emperor of Bones. What comes next? When trying to bring flowers to someone recovering from injuries, you roll a 20 and get a bouquet bigger than you are. Sometimes when you are trying to investigate corrupt city guards while wearing a disguise, you roll a 1 and fall quite awkwardly. Our adventurers brave caverns they know to be dangerous, risk discovery even while invisible, and fight a particularly nasty set of furniture in a magic shop. Join Ben and Stephen for this third installment of the Adventurers Assemble campaign. The two discuss getting to know a party when there are few obvious quest hooks, discovering items that might be best left behind, and navigating this final session of level one play. Subscribe to Storytelling Breakdown wherever you get your podcasts.
