Beneath the sands of time, a castle and its undead court stirs.

Deep in the darkest woods, a wild hunt rages on.

And at the edge of a fallen city, a never-ceasing hunger gnaws at the ribs of unlucky souls.

In the heart of Vyer, the Unholy Empire, Queen Sephira of the Thrice-Cursed House of Fane adjusts her grandmother’s crown, fully aware that she is not the only devil scheming in her throne room.

And somewhere, ignorant to it all, are four bad heroes, with no idea just how unprepared they are.

Welcome to Bad Heroes.

Bad Heroes is an actual play podcast based on the Pathfinder tabletop roleplaying game.

It’s set in a homebrew world and campaign by Drea Silvertooth, our game master and the show’s creator, and played by a group of friends who like to goof around and have fun while spinning an original tale.

If you’re a fan of adventure and intrigue with a healthy dose of comedy — and looking for a new story to dive into — then you’ve come to the right place!

We publish new episodes on the first and third Wednesday of every month.

Cast & Crew

Drea Silvertooth (GM)

When not dragging their players through hell (literally) Drea can be found rescuing difficult but lovable dogs, hunting down the best vegan eats, and writing short stories about soft hearts in unforgiving worlds. Since the birth of this podcast, they can also be found talking to themselves in a rotating cast of character voices and accidentally alarming strangers.

Kazz Baloo (Gydeon)

Kazz enjoys solving puzzles of all types, going on adventures with her rescue Chowba, Oso Baloo, and baking. Having recently taken on swing dancing and learning the ukulele, her day to day life is unpredictable. A calendar could probably help her… if it ever got used.

Koulnis (Tonreir)

Koulnis is very much a traveling man, a real-life Viking and mild musician! He enjoys experiencing other cultures, seeing new corners of the globe, doing (legal) Viking things and sleeping!

Liska Winter (Iria)

Liska is currently testing her sanity by working and going to graduate school at the same time, all in pursuit of informing the powers-that-be of their denseness. In her spare time she enjoys dragging unsuspecting friends on 10-mile hikes, reading, and learning all sorts of percussion.

Jake Hoskinson (Wingthe)

Jake is an aspiring author of fantasy fiction and can often be found juggling his many passions, including hiking, photography, video gaming, medieval combat sports, Celtic music, driving people around, and reading whatever he can get his hands on, especially anything to do with history or mythology.

Lian Rose (Producer)

Lian pushes pixels by day and designs worlds by night. When she’s not covered in cats or doing parkour (hopefully not at the same time) she acts as the show’s editing wizard and social media manager.
