Hey Folks. This is the first episode of Advantage to Insight, a D&D podcast by @Visionary. You can find more of their content by following this web link. Feel free to let us know what you think of the show.
“This is Advantage to Insight! Where we roll two d20s and…”
“…we immediately forget our Wisdom modifier!
“Welcome to the show where we talk about Dungeons & Dragons until we get completely off topic!”
“My name’s Wayne.”
“And I’m Alex.”
Why?: hard to find the right balance of prep and unused prep
- module or open world?
- if module, repercussion ready for straying too far.
- Some NPCs sketched out
- Where are they likely to go
- Ideas for maps, but we both tend to map as we go
- will they ever go back?
What are you preparing?
Prep which layer of game
- Setting (home brew or established)
- Campaign (module or no)
- Story Arc (chapter)
- How comfortable are you with prep
Prep vs improv
Thank you Chris of Misdirected Mark
