It's been an odd month.As always, you can find us on Twitter @DMScreenCast, or can email us directly at DMScreenCast@gmail.com if you've got any questions or recommendations for future episodes!

    Episode 9: Behind the Screen - Afton

    In order to avoid the echo chamber that is three friends discussing something they've done their entire lives, we've brought on a guest speaker!

    Episode 8: Downtime

    Episode 8: Downtime

    Surprisingly, not all of your time in an RPG will be spent stabbing demons and stealing ancient artifacts. Just most of it. This week, join us once again as we discuss how to keep the party interested when they're not actively engaged with dungeons and/or dragons. As always, you can find us on Twitter @DMScreenCast, or can email us directly at DMScreenCast@gmail.com if you've got any questions or recommendations for future episodes!

    Episode 7: Session 0

    Episode 7: Session 0

    An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure. In this final arc of the "That Guy" trilogy, we introduce the concept of Session Zero, in which ground rules are established, and problem players are stopped in their tracks. ...We probably should have started with the preventative measures, now that I think about it. Be sure to check us out on Twitter @DMScreenCast for updates and shenanigans!
