The Adventure Zone is, at this point, much more than a family D&D game. For the McElroy family, hanging out with their brothers is now a part of their full time job. For some in the fandom, the current season of The Adventure Zone is a disaster. Some of these fans feel that the current Dungeon Master, middle brother Travis McElroy, has made the show unlistenable. The rapport that the McElroy family has with each other is a huge part of the appeal for listeners.
