Now that about a month has passed since the close of TAZ: Amnesty, it’s time for the post you’ve all been waiting for (at least, I hope): my oh-so-professional PODCAST OPINIONS!
Even if you weren’t waiting for them, though, they’re here all the same, complete with spoilers so I can discuss this campaign in full. For those of you that haven’t finished the arc, I recommend coming back later!
While TAZ: Balance is the love of my podcast life, TAZ: Amnesty is giving it a run for its money. Featuring oddball cryptids in the West Virginia woods, monsters with a purpose bigger and darker than we could ever know, and a trio of player characters who are SOMEHOW mostly finding their footing in this weird world they’ve been hurled into, Amnesty is the charming spooky woods arc I didn’t know I’ve been waiting for.
Which NATURALLY means it’s time for another set of book recommendations! Characters are listed in their rough order of appearance, so if you’re not caught up with Amnesty, you can duck (HA) out whenever you really need to.
It’s no secret that I love The Adventure Zone: Balance. You might have seen my review of it last October, and even if you haven’t, I feel like I probably mention it often enough on social media that it shouldn’t be a surprise.
But honestly, what better way to celebrate how much I love this campaign than to do a list of book recs by character? So, figure out your favorite, and then waltz on down below the cut to see what I’ve recommended for them!
And hey, if you’re not done with Balance yet, or have any intention of starting it, don’t stray too far beyond the first few characters/wherever you’re at in the campaign. This post absolutely contains spoilers, but it’s organized roughly by appearance/moment of major relevant characterization so that you can quit while you’re ahead if you have to.
Bit by bit, I’ve been listening to more of The Adventure Zone. It’s been a little slow, between school and recovering from the brilliance of the Balance arc, but somehow, I’ve made it all the way through the Commitment and Dust arcs, leaving me right on the edge of Amnesty!
But let’s go back a little, and look at what’s happened in the mini-arcs since the finale of Balance.
About six months ago, if you had told me I’d fall so in love with a podcast that I willingly listened to about 80 hours of it, I wouldn’t have believed you. I struggle with audiobooks, and have never gotten along with podcasts, because my brain absolutely hates absorbing information through audio alone. I am a visual learner, and podcasts are the enemy.
But then I met The Adventure Zone, and everything changed.
