Commercial Break: Not Your Sidekick

It’s that time again, folks! Another round of signal boosting our favourite stuff so you have something to occupy you between werewolf shenanigans.

Without further ado:

Not Your Sidekick by C.B. Lee

Superheroes! Mysteries! Queer protagonists!

“Welcome to Andover, where superpowers are common, but internships are complicated. Just ask high school nobody, Jessica Tran. Despite her heroic lineage, Jess is resigned to a life without superpowers and is merely looking to beef up her college applications when she stumbles upon the perfect (paid!) internship–only it turns out to be for the town’s most heinous supervillain.”

Not Your Sidekick by C.B. Lee is the book I wish I had growing up. It’s the perfect combination of superhero worldbuilding and adorable queer crushes. Y’all really need this book in your life.

You can get it on Amazon here.

Podcast: Not Another D&D Podcast

I started listening to this podcast fairly recently, off of a recommendation from a friend, and I’m SO glad that I did! Fans of The Adventure Zone will love this comedy real-play D&D podcast set in the magical land of Bahumia as it follows the adventures of our three heroes (Hardwon Surefoot, Moonshine Cybin, and Beverly Toegold IV) as they try to clean up the mess left behind by the last group of legendary heroes, collecting NPCs and pushing the shenanigan limits along the way. Check out their website to get a taste for yourself!


You can also support these good folks on Patreon! And because people have already done so, they’re able to offer a bonus campaign (set in the Lisa Frank-fantasy world of Trinyvale) as well as a whole bonus PODCAST, “The Short Rest Podcast”, in which the cast talk about their latest session, their favorite ice cream flavors, and what sort of ridiculous plans they can get way with next time.

All in all, this comes HIGHLY recommended. But don’t just trust me! To quote Moonshine’s possum companion Paw Paw Gump, brilliant legal mind and registered scrambleboy, “REEEEE reeee ReeEEEEEE!!!”
