    Break The Dice PodcastWe at Mox are all listening to the Break The Dice podcast! The adventures of Malone and Crabapple of last season have us the the edge of our seat. We proudly sponsor Break The Dice and highly recommend you give them a listen, but don't take our word for it, keep reading their own words below: Greetings mortals!We are Break the Dice (BTD), a fantasy adventure podcast that combines the best elements of a tabletop RPG with the storytelling and fart sounds of improv comedy. Think of us as a group of friends sitting around a table in your ears, but instead of referencing detailed character sheets or voluminous rulebooks, we’re relying on our trusty (and patient) game master Allen, some homespun character voices, and our somewhat fractured minds.
