Adventure Cast – Darkest Shadows is a hybrid show which is party actual play paired with semi-scripted scenes. The show is a weekly session of Dungeons & Dragons 3.5 with certain modifications and rules set changes set in a dark and grim fantasy setting that is an alternate Earth known as Ardan in which a cosmic even altered the course of man.
The show is hosted by Mykal Grymm and features his friends as supporting cast. Mykal came up with the idea while outlining his upcoming and debut novella and wanted to experiment with having his friends play through his settings using characters inspired by them. It sounded like fun and after watching other similar shows he realized that he wanted to do something different where the audience and players help weave the narrative and final product and invites all to participate in the creative process unlike any other author before him.
