    Gibbering Mouther

    Gibbering Mouther

    In our last episode of season 1, we're covering one of the creepiest monsters you can throw at your players:  the Gibbering Mouther.  This alien aberration will make your players Fight, Flight or Freeze when they hear the voices of absorbed victims and has the potential to kill a player with no hope of coming back.  Sounds fun!

    Guards

    Guards

    This week's episode is all about Guards!  They are arguably one of the most boring "monsters" in the MM, but we discuss how you can do a lot of worldbuildng in the way your setting uses guards.

    Meets or Beats

    Meets or Beats

    It took us years to keep this rule straight, despite it being in the first few pages of the Player's Handbook!  It took this catchy phrase to nail it down:  "Meets or beats."  Listen today and make sure you're managing dice rolls correctly and consistently!
