I really recommend this for beginners! It takes the intimidation away from running your own game and, gives you the tips are tricks you need to run it successfully.

Mr. Russ and Mr. Sean are both essential to your journey into the world as a DM/GM. Their witty, yet informational commentary can also give you many creative ideas without pushing you to any specific game that you need to run first. You can easily take their info and run with it! (Yes, pun intended. 😂)

Not to mention, their voices are amazing to listen to, anywhere you go.

A great help to anyone running a TTRPG

Whether you’re a DM or a GM, you’re going to get some great advice on how to make your game better here. Both hosts, and all the guests bring unique perspectives to running a game, and I’ve gotten a ton of great tips from every show, even those that focus mainly on systems I don’t currently use. Highly recommended for anyone who is running or wants to run a TTRPG regardless of their level of experience.
