    Changing the Way We Build Characters

    Changing the Way We Build Characters

    If you are like us, you've probably built more characters than you will ever play. But what if you had to play a character to build them? The idea is that as a 0 level character, you play in a short mini-campaign that showcases an influential time in your character's life that shaped who they would become. We discuss how this work with starting with only 2d6 in each ability score, gaining stats, skill, languages and spells as your character blossoms. We also discuss some fun ways to take the levels out of leveling up, and look at ways exciting ways to motivate players to lean into the role play of character development.


    We also discuss the idea of "rolling with emphasis" -- taking the most extreme result from rolling two d20s.

    Spoiler Alert: We are discussing our take-aways from the new D&D movie, Honor Among Thieves.

    Rock The Clock Mechanic: Going Beyond The Timer

    Rock The Clock Mechanic: Going Beyond The Timer

    Using a clock or counter system can dramatically overhaul how encounters play out. They can introduce a puzzle-like complexity, and increase the number of ways to win besides just doing damage. And they can add a dynamism to the active evolving world of your campaign setting. If you need some help getting clocks working in your game, now's the time!

    True Magic: How to Make Spellcasting Work Like It Does In The Movies

    True Magic: How to Make Spellcasting Work Like It Does In The Movies

    We've all seen spells explode on the big screen and thought, "I want my character to be able to do that!" Then gone looking in the Player's Handbook only to find the closest thing to it is some 3rd level spell with a ridiculous number of restrictions. The World's Greatest RPG shouldn't be so disappointing. So the solution is simple: steal some magical ideas from other sources. We look at Ars Magica, Push Powered, as well as some of our own homebrew to find ways to create a new full spectrum of magical powers full of the sort of risks and rewards that makes the TTRPG hobby so much fun.

    How To Make Players More Invested

    How To Make Players More Invested

    Ever get the feeling that, as a DM, the weight of the world rests upon your shoulders alone? That your players just show up expecting to be entertained? That there is a lot of pressure on you to look after everyone's feelings? But then who is looking after you? Join us as we look into how to deepen player involvement in the game, the story, and the mutual enjoyment at your table.


    We discuss a solution hidden in the back pages of the DMG (who knew?): Plot Points. Join us as we talk about how to increase the responsibilities of the players, and in the process, make the game more enjoyable for all.
