Hail and well met, Dungeon Masters! Recorded from my secret lair in Brooklyn, here's another episode of the Dungeon Master's Screed, in which I ramble through a handful of topics. This time, I touch on metagaming, TPKs, and what, if anything, constitutes a fair encounter. Don't leave me talking to myself, give me your thoughts in the comments on any of these topics or anything else. I'm ready to believe you!Show Notes:* "Ridgelands" hex: https://ko-fi.com/i/IR6R71PLYVLike What I Do?

Hail and well met, Dungeon Masters! Follow me through the nostalgia tunnel to a time of great adventure! Where keeps were kept, the borderlands were well bordered, and the caves were filled to bursting with chaos!

Hail and well met, Dungeon Masters! We got some psionically enhanced unearthed arcana last week that I wanted to take a look at so here I am, taking a look. Nothing is quite as divisive as psionics in Dungeons & Dragons. Let's see how Wizards tries to navigate this thorny expanse this time around.

Hail and well met, Dungeon Masters! I posted a free one page hex to spice up your hexcrawl or wilderness campaign. Talking about that leads me down a path of exploring sprucing up your hex maps with unusual features, elemental planar crossovers, the Loch Ness monster, and more fodder and inspiration for your hex-centric Dungeons & Dragons campaign.Show Notes:* "A Grove of Red Delirium" at Patreon (free download): https://www.patreon.com/posts/36100061Like What I Do?

Recorded on Easter Sunday so happy Easter, Dungeon Masters and Dungeon Delvers! In this extended ramble, I talk abou Rule of Cool and try to figure out how to use it in the context of the game without leaving it on to abuse. TLDR; let's mechanize it. I chose to tie it to Inspiration (and I talk about how to make Inspiration something more mechanically and transparently achievable) and put it into the players' hands to evoke.Show Notes:* Ideals and Flaws: https://www.patreon.com/posts/30713203* Ideals and Flaws How to Use Video: https://youtu.be/L6z50GeXRawLike What I Do?

I hope everyone is safe and healthy! I'm here with a quick chat about Adam Koebel and dealing with gaffes in our Dungeons and Dragons or other tabletop roleplaying game. They happen to the best of us and they will happen to us. If we can't avoid them, what can we do to mitigate them?Like What I Do?

Another busy week for me outside gaming but I found a few minutes to talk about something that's been on my mind recently: the concept that the DM is resonsible for the players' fun. I don't think they are, at least not directly and definitely not solely. A GM has plenty of jobs and responsibilities in the game but it's the entire table that is responsible for the table's fun, not any one player. And the GM is a player too!Like What I Do?

Hey Dungeon Masters, warlock patrons are wonderful entities to pull into your Dungeons & Dragons campaigns, as full blown BBEGs or secondary villains, allies, or even just color. But before you pull the trigger on building your campaign elements around these entities, do one thing first: talk to your Warlock player! Not every Warlock player will be as excited or even on board at all with these decisions. Because a patron is so intricately and intimately connected to both the mechanical and fictional powers of a character, the player playing that character deserves some say in if and how these elements are engaged with. Have that conversation! It's the right thing to do.Like What I Do?

Audio from my YouTube livestream on demystifying random encounters. I try to explain a bit, at a high level, what they are, what they're for, and how you can leverage them for your campaigns.

Wizards of the Coast has announced their first supplement for 2020, a sourcebook for the Critical Role setting, "Wildemount". The reception has been, in the corners that I frequent, decidely mixed.

Happy holidays! In this Out of Character episode, I talk to Will about Home Alone, the John Hughes penned Christman classic from the early nineties. As a bonus, we look at two holiday action films: Die Hard and Lethal Weapon. Why has Die Hard been embraced as a Christmas film with Lethal Weapon has not? Perhaps Mr. Joshua knows.Like What I Do?

CUT MY HEART OUT AND THROW ME TO THE WOLVES! A teaser for a new Dungeons & Dragons video game, "Dark Alliance", dropped and, yeah, dropped is the right word for it. Here's my reaction. I'm happy that a game is coming but this, judging by the trailer, may not be the game that I'm looking for. The wolves may be feasting on many hearts tonight but, hopefully, lessons will be learned and the final game will rise like a glorious phoenix from the ashes of Drizzt's fiery tears.Like What I Do?

Hey Dungeon Masters, I'm back with another Appendix N entry: Highlander! (The original one, do not ask me about the sequels. Do. Not. Ask.) This quirky swords without sorcery flick has always been a favorite of mine: Sean Connery playing an Egyptian, a Frenchman playing a Scotsman, a Kurgan, it has it all! If you've seen it, comment with your thoughts. Have you borrowed anything from Highlander for your Dungeons & Dragons or other RPG campaign? If you haven't seen it, go watch it now (NOW!) and then come back and give this a listen.Like What I Do?

Hey Dungeon Masters, the holiday season is in full swing for this DM Tip: be generous! Help your players out if they're clearly working off of wrong assumptions or mistaken memories. Sure, ultimately, it's there responsibility to know their stuff but you can be a good sammaritan by helping them out rather than watch them flounder. Your players will thank you for it.Watch the video: https://www.patreon.com/posts/32150256Like What I Do?

Hey Dungeon Masters, I'm checking in with a quick DM Tips video about being transparent with your table about how you make decisions and adjudicate situations in your D&D or other RPG game. It's never a bad idea to let your players know how situations will play out mechanically-- not what will happen-- but what sorts of results are in play and how those results will be calculated. An educated party is the most capable of making informed decisions and less likely to be aggravated by outcomes that they understand. If you don't do this already, give it a try!Like What I Do?

Appendix N was the section in the classic, First Edition, Dungeon Master's Guide, in which Gygax listed a number of books and stories that he found inspirational. In this series, I will be creating my on Appendix N of media that I find inspirational for fantasy roleplaying. In this video, I take a quick look at Ron Howard's fantasy flick from 1998, "Willow".
