Shocking Gasp is a serialized actual play D&D 5e podcast with a high fantasy theme focusing on a balance between comedic and dramatic character roleplaying. When an enigmatic being falls from the sky, four strangers investigate and find themselves on the run from a superhuman force. Now they must fight for their survival while attempting to unravel the mystery of who the being was and why they're being hunted.
Set in the homebrew world of Telunor, the show details the adventurers of the gnome barbarian Gunny Glitterblaster, the half-elf pirate Amos Vonal, the dwarf charlatan Tychus Gemcutter, and the gnome sorcerer Tilly Gladdenstone. Their quest will take them all over the world of Telunor as well as into the separate and varied Realms.
Shocking Gasp is made for lovers of Dungeons & Dragons, tabletop roleplaying games, and those who enjoy an actual play fantasy story. The show carries the iTunes “Explicit” tag for language and depictions of violence. We make every effort to keep the show clean, but some parents should be aware the content may not be suitable for children. Were podcasts rated per the MPAA standards, we believe we would receive a PG-13 rating on average.
Shocking Gasp debuted in September 2018 with five introductory "Prelude" episodes introducing the cast and main characters. Campaign One began in October 2018 and is ongoing. Periodically, a Shocking Spotlight episode will be released highlighting personal interests of the cast. As of March 2020, Shocking Gasp has 46 episodes and over 12,500 unique downloads or streams.
