    L005 - Legend Lore - Guildmasters‘ Guide to Ravnica

    This episode of Legend Lore takes us out of the Forgotten Realms and into the first Magic: the Gathering setting: Ravnica.  But is the book Guildmasters’ Guide to Ravnica worth the price tag?  One of the Dungeon Masters comes in skeptical to start with, but with 10 guilds, a deep bestiary, and a fantastic layout, it’s no surprise when things keep looking better and better for Niv-Mizzet, Rakdos, and the other inhabitants within these pages.

Best Podcast for new DMs

I can’t recommend these guys enough. As a new DM I’ve found their episodes to be extremely informative and enlightening. It’s helped me to think about my campaigns in a totally different way and is in turn making my campaigns more enjoyable for the players.

Progull ,

Fun , informative and chatty.

A group with great chemistry will give you a good fundamental understanding of a creature in an entertaining way.

Actaeus ,

Awesome

My first ever podcast review, these guys are funny as hell and really know their information. It’s great to learn more about DND (especially since I’m new) and have fun listening at the same time. My favorite podcast for sure.
