Rootless: Might, Right... and Arson

What would it look like if a deer used explosives? How about if a cat wore armor and carried a mechanical sword that was a sentient mantis? All good questions that you can find the answers to in our new podcast: Rootless! If you enjoy roleplay, comedy, Critical Role, Dimension20, Dungeons and Dragons, storytelling, or anything in between, give us a listen :) We are Rootless! An actual-play podcast playing the Root RPG by Leder Games. To break it down to the essentials: Anthropomorphized furry woodland critters like cats, foxes, deer, and more; all set in a medieval fantasy world! Find us on YouTube:

Sabian the Fox Exile

Hello I am Sabian and I'm played by Liam. I am a red fox exile. I was sent to be either killed or imprisoned for life, however I managed to escape and have been on the run since. Now I've taken the task of protecting Calla and finding her family. All while making a new family with this group of rootless vagabonds.

Red the Squirrel Scoundrel

I’m Red the Red Squirrel Scoundrel played by Emily. I grew up in Windgap Refuge and was an apprentice to an eccentric chipmunk named Dr Weembsly at a workshop that specialized in the pursuit of SCIENCE! I grew worried about the projects we were working on- they were highly destructive- and orchestrated an accident in order to set progress back. In the fallout, I barely escaped from the clearing with my life. Having lived a sheltered life, I’m a little naive and still getting the hang of this whole “Vagabond” thing- but it has been nice to stick together with others who have found themselves rootless. I hope to one day see a Woodland that can resolve its conflicts without war and without destruction.
