Iyengar explained, “There is something about Dimension 20 in particular that scratches every beautiful piece of comedy and improvisation and that wildly creative story.” “It opened up new possibilities for the kind of stories you can tell that kind of epic-level, high fantasy D&D games that I’m into.

Actual play programming lasts a long time, so keeping it running can require a lot of time investment from its fans. So where should people focus their attention on the first few shows? Iyengar says the premiere will do a lot to characterize the next nine episodes.

[…] Pay attention to the stage the characters are setting on, as they will tell you who they really are when they are alone. Then it becomes so interesting to see who they become and who they turn and the mold they step in or step out of when it hits the fay society at large. ,
