It is time to look back and reflect how we changed and where we are now. Recapping where we are and leading us to direct our desired future.

Recap and Reflect A lot of things can be said about the progression of the Until We Go There podcast. Today we take a step back to recap. Let’s look at how we started and what was our first intention. You’ve probably seen how rapidly things changed...

029: Bolter / Rigger

You probably thought to yourself once or twice if there could be more to the regular DnD session than it already offers, right? Maybe the class you’re playing is just not as involving as you want it to be and chances are that you’re right. In order to experiment with class variations and a more responsive class engagement, I’ve been working on the class I will present you in the podcast. Using either crossbows or traps, this Alchemist variation is focussed on throwing the vials you brewed to...

028: New Classes

Take some time to ask yourself: do you really like to play that class? If yes, why? If no, why? The reason for this is to understand the underlining mechanics of classes in DnD a little bit better, to make those hours spent a lot more engaging and fun. We learn to understand a little better why in fact many spells, rules and classes work inefficiently. Come, to this journey to explore how you can become a proactive player. Better communication and clarity what you actually want to play will...

027: Why DnD’s Weapon Mechanics Suck

Dagger, Shortsword, Longsword, Glaive and all other weapons related, have one thing in common: One action. And a surprisingly static combat blueprint. You adventure through a dark and murky dungeon, the air is damp and your eyes feel strained from the constant dim light. You hold on tightly to your sword as it gives you much-needed protection in this tomb. You reminisce over the monsters you have slain with your weapon of choice, how you and your group survived the encounter earlier thanks...

025: Of Rules and Laws

The laws of the land exceed the imaginative setting that is presented in DnD. While you can imagine a lot of things in the role-playing world, you still have to follow some rules of real life to make it a reality. Sometimes that reality hits in weird ways.This one is a tough one, no wonder that there are not many more sites that provide you with more tools how to build interesting and weird characters in DnD. A herculean task to figure out how the whole law system of the possible...

023: How To Become An Effective Communicator In DnD

It’s easy to cast away the importance of good communication with your friends or family but would you ever do that in business? Why are businesses so effective in telling us what we want to hear and how can you harness that. With markets around us, everybody becomes super savvy in selling their product, appealing to customers and showing them why they need that specific thing that you offer. The experiences I made, taught me to condemn that. Rightfully so, I was convinced that it’s the...

022: Be Honest To Your Dreams

Commit to your dreams, chase them, get beaten down by them, rebuild yourself and assemble better than before. This is the very essence of grit.

You surely know when you’re most productive and when most creative. What is most difficult, though, is to stay true to your dreams and to catalyse them according to your needs.

019: Fashion In Fiction

Do you have a hard time figuring out what to wear today, for an important ritual you want to perform? In this episode, you will discover why a living, breathing fictional world needs to ask this question and why mages shouldn’t wear robes in the first place.

Well, can we agree that the way you and I wear clothes...

018: Constructing The Why

015: Where To Find Passion

How often do you ask yourself “do I love doing this”? Find out how to excel at the things you call your passion. Define it, reflect on it and ultimately become better at it. Does your passion excite you every day? And if not, why? The biggest revelation for me was to accept what I truly like doing. That meant to break with the bias that I felt was programmed into me.

014: Decoding Creativity

Your creative expression is not only a tool but an expression of your personality. The environment in which we willingly insert ourselves is directly responsible for how we express our creative potential. At that point, we have to learn to influence it on our own. Environment and upbringing shape how we behave. When you consider yourself rusty in the creative fields, then it’s probably because you’ve been trained to see creativity and all possibilities from a one-dimensional viewpoint. I...

013: Shattering Paradigms

It’s so important to say those difficult words “I was wrong” and I would argue many people don’t do it often enough.
