SYNOPSIS: It's time again to jump down the hole in the Yawning Portal and spend some quality time in Halaster's playground! How does the 5th Ed. trip to Undermountain fare when compared to the 2e, 3.5 and 4e delves? Let's find out!
SYNOPSIS: There's gold in them there.... um... sewers or something? After a very stressful few weeks, Dan's back with his take on the newish Waterdeep - Dragon Heist, because it would be silly to do the review for DotMM first.
SYNOPSIS: Get ready to raid the Tomb of Damara again! This time I'm taking on the AD&D 2nd Edition First Quest box set, which was created as an intro to the AD&D game. We'll talk about the contents, the pared-down rules, the adventures, and of course the CD.
HOSTS: Dan & John. SYNOPSIS: We take a moment or an hour to talk about not only where 5th Ed. has gone over the past four years, but also where we'd like to see some of the products go. Someone please convince WotC to listen to this!
GUEST CO-HOST: Al. SYNOPSIS: Al & Dan break out the cards from the AD&D Trivia Game (released in 1991) and see how bad they score, proving that verbatim knowledge of the rules does not make one a better or worse player.
VERY SPECIAL GUESTS: Rhiannon & Devon. SYNOPSIS: Tonight I sat down with the kiddos to talk about their first D&D session and what they thought about it. Note that while I tried to explain how to talk in the microphone they were a bit mousy so they aren't as loud as I am.
SPECIAL GUEST: Al. SYNOPSIS: With con season coming up, Dan & Al talk about some of the unique situations that happen when running a game in this environment, from pre-gens and pacing to the various differences between con games and your home game.
GUEST CO-HOST: Al. SYNOPSIS: Tonight we had a discussion on using the wilderness and travel to the fullest, instead of simply rolling for encounters. From using the environment to add a challenge to peppering the journey with sights and interactions, we talk all the ways to make the travel part of the adventure.
SYNOPSIS: Dan goes back to some missed 5th ed. products that could use a review but didn't due to the lack of content of each on their own. Included are the DM's Screen, DM's Screen Reincarnated, D&D Adventure Grid, Dungeonology, Character Sheet Folder, and Cloud Giant's Bargain.
