The show

The Stubborn Heroes is an Actual Play Dungeons & Dragons 5E Podcast set in the Homebrew World of Varian. 

But... We are so much more than just that. 


In 2015 - the Heroes banded together to try a game most of them had not played before. A game that has been the pillar of the tabletop gaming community for nearly five decades...

Dungeons & Dragons 5th Edition is a game of role-play and adventure where you take on the identity of a PC (Player Character) within a fantasy world created by you, and your friends. It is a collective experience of story, combat, and world building that takes place within your minds! All of your actions are decided by the Roll of the Dice, the consequences of which are decided by the DM (Dungeon Master - AKA Game Master by some folks). The DM and PCs - by working together, weave a tale of mystery, intrigue, and adventure that is unique to them.

After playing through their first Campaign (which we call Campaign 0), Adam (The Stubborn Heroes DM) decided that the groups world and lore were so rich and their play-style so accessible, that they should record their sessions and release it as an audio podcast. Since releasing their first episode in 2016, the podcast and community around it has grown exponentially. 

Campaign 1 tells the story of The Unfated Ones and their adventures as they grow in power and silliness, exploring the world of Varian and making many friends as well as enemies along the way.

Campaign 2 takes place in The Isles of Umbra, a mysterious and previously isolated area of Varian, untouched by the rest of the world. The heroes, known as The Six, are just as mysterious as the Isles in which they find themselves.

So please join us by the fire and read on, where you will learn more about the world and expanded universe that has grown around this crazy show of ours...
