Ep 130 - Is Realism Overrated
We all love campaigns that have actions and reactions grounded in realism but in this episode, Jeremy asks, is the work to make things realistic worth it?

Ep 129 - Pathfinder Nexus
Listener Peter sent an email asking about Paizo's planned Pathfinder Nexus so I went digging through the archives and recorded interviews from PaizoCon to discuss the latest I could find.
In this episode I also ask someone to bring me Jason Buhlman but not literally. I just want to talk to him about adventure ideas. This isn't a "bring me the head of my enemies" kind of thing.
Maybe I don't need to record or write descriptions until I'm off the pain meds...
Ep 128 - DMing at Conventions
If you've never DM'd at a convention or one night at a gaming store, it's just a little different. While you could try to duplicate your gaming experience you give to your normal groups, there are some tips and tricks I've learned that have made my convention games more successful. Here are 10 tips to make your convention game as good as it can be.
Ep 127 - Keeping 1st Level PCs Alive
Low level characters die so easily. The game world is full of traps, monsters and all sorts of things looking to do them harm. As a player, how to you keep your fragile character alive? As a DM, how do you change your game to make it not quite so deadly? After all, we don't want to go back to the bad old days when we all had multiple characters in case ours died every single game session.
