Of Dice & DMs is a podcast analysing about Dungeons and Dragons as well as other role-playing games. Each week we discuss a different topic concerning interactions at the table, or monsters, or just general trends in the game.
Music: Stephen Spencer
134 - Of Dice, DMs, & Rangers
One of the most maligned classes, the ranger is the class of Aragorn and Tarzan, or so we discuss on today's episode. We look at the different ranger sub classes in D&D and what we think of each one.
133 - Of Dice, DMs, & Prophecy
A new episode, as the prophecy decreed! The crew discuss ways to enjoy RPG games where the outcome is foretold at the beginning, and how to sprinkle elements of prophecy into your games.
132 - Of Dice, DMs, & Surprises
What a twist! We discuss the power of surprise and twists in an RPG, and whether it's possibly to surprise a genre-savvy party.
131 - Of Dice, DMs, & Life Paths
Do you prefer giving your game master pages upon pages of back story, or would you rather let the dice control your fate and use the life path method? Following the talk about the Infinity RPG, Ben and Jeremy discuss with Tory some of the ways you can build your character's history into adventures in a realistic fashion.
130 - Of Dice, DMs, & Sci - Fi Games
Tory's absent, so Ben and Jeremy talk about the Infinity RPG, and some other thematic elements of science-fiction RPGs.
129 - Of Dice, DMs, & NPC Investment
What makes a memorable NPC? We discuss ways of getting players to care about the NPCs in your games - both how to have them be beloved, and how to make them hated.
Of Dice & DMs is a podcast I'd recommend to anyone with even a passing interest in D&D (and other roleplaying games). The cast represents a wide range of experience levels and different perspectives on roleplaying games, and every episode features a fantastic discussion of the different aspects of tabletop RPGs, from social issues like gender representation to mechanical subjects like homebrew and monstrous races.
The cast is both entertaining and engaging to listen to, not afraid to disagree with each other or to bring up an alternative viewpoint. There's something here for every player and dungeon master, veterans and newcomers alike.
I think it is great and you can learn a lot about D&D very useful, love listening to it. I recommend it highly
