What is Tales from Trantor?

Tales from Trantor is an “actual play” podcast series, recorded by a group of Australians as they play table-top roleplaying games like Dungeons & Dragons, Cyberpunk Red and Traveller. We currently play online and over the Internet, so you may occasionally notice background noise, static or other interference that couldn’t be removed through the power of editing.

A role-playing podcast?

If you haven’t heard of it before, role-playing can be thought of a bit like “group storytelling”. One player takes on the duty of being the administrator of the game (commonly called a Game Master or Dungeon Master), and creates a story for the other players to follow, representing many characters, enemies and monsters the other players will encounter along the way. Everyone else plays as a character in the story, and interact with the environment to help structure it and give it life.

After the game sessions, the editor of the podcast (Ben) adds ambience, sound effects and music to the recording to make the finished episodes. Most of the content added is royalty free, but when other media is used, proper credit is provided in the episode description and Attributions page as required or requested by the author. If you listened to something and believe an attribution, please contact us!
