If You Love TTRPGs Then You Need to Check Out Fabled 42!
We live in a day and age where Dungeons & Dragons along with many other tabletop role-playing games dominate the geek world and it is beautiful. The past time that was once thought to be only enjoyed by the geekiest or socially awkward has become hip thanks to popular productions like Critical Role or The Adventure Zone.
In hopes to entertain the masses, many groups of friends have gathered audio equipment in order to start their own TTRPG brand! However now the (good) problem folks have is that there are just so many TTRPG networks that it is hard to know who to follow! To assist, I wanted to share one of my favorites!
This is none other than Fabled 42 and after discovering them I have fallen head over heels for their hard work, dedication, and passion for community building!
Fabled 42 streams various series on their Twitch channel throughout the week each with a different cast and many games have separate Dungeon Masters to showcase the talents of their community. Those streams are then converted to podcast episodes and YoUTube videos to make it easier for fans to catch up!
Examples of their series:
Legends of Sha’oghal hosted by the Pretty DM
Vault 42 hosted by April Hill
Wizards of Ukodor hosted by Chris Solo
These are only three of their currently airing six shows which you can find on their YouTube channel along with all of their previous content. Each and every series is unique to one another to ensure that everyone will find something they love out of at least one of their series!
Prior to most shows they also take the time to have talk shows where they interview members of their Fabled 42 community and/or members of the Table Top RPG community outside of the brand. These discussions can range from the process of world-building for Dungeon Masters to recaps of the Fabled 42 shows, and even social discussions on the current state of the TTRPG world.
Fawks Talks hosted by Ronin Fawks
Quests & Answers hosted by Chris Solo
The Roll Out hosted by Linsay Rousseau and Genevieve Marie
If talk shows and various TTRPG series were not enough then you’ll be stoked to find out that they also connect with their fans via Discord and always have shenanigans going on such as Donation Drives, Charity streams, and even their own Fabled Con!

At its core, Fabled 42 focuses on creating a TTRPG community that supports indie storytelling and performers. It gives them a safe space to thrive for the entertainment of their viewers. In many ways the relationship between the cast and the community is very intimate to the point where it all feels like a family. I myself have been given a warm welcome into their cast and will soon be performing for Vault 42 and Wizards of Ukodor along with some potential one-shot content.
