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

Are you ready to get down. I am. I am. It’s pop culture in D&D inspired by Michael Bedensky and then we finish up with the Underdark and finally emerge from the Abyss, a little crazier but still sorta there. Now for the bad news. My audio got messed up bad so I had to go to the back up recording. It’s not as good as our normal fare but next time I promise it’ll be solid. Get Down. Be Solid. Wave your tentacle arms in the air like you just don’t care. Peace.

It’s time to get down. Shawn and Chris bring you a bunch of the new things that are going on in D&D the past two weeks and go Gothic with the newest Unearthed Arcana and the vague casting becomes more clearly defined as if it’s emerged from the mists.

Hey Folks. This week we’re bringing Phil back from the dead of his terrible cold and in doing so he brought his view point on resurrection into the garage. It doesn’t smell as bad as you’d think. Of course there’s the social media depository and the podcast round up. Also if you’re not in the chatroom on Tuesday nights I hope you’re having as much fun as the crazies in there are. #chatroom4life.

You down with D&D? You know I am. So lets get down on this slightly longer episode of the newest edition of the underdark hip hop sensation sweeping the podcast nation. It’s Out of the Abyss and What’s New in D&D but not in that order and as a sweet treat James Intercaso, host of the D&D Round Table, has his tones coming through in the intro and outro tune this week and from now on. Feel free to send me your “Yeah, you know me” to Chris@misdirectedmark.com and I’ll be happy to mix you in too.

Come Get Down With Us. Time to look at a bunch of stone that is covered with mist and horror and romanticism and time travel and we might just throw in the kitchen sink. It’s D&D with Chris and Shawn on Ravenloft and the Out of the Abyss campaign book. Bringing it on strong.

Are you ready to get down with D&D. I know I am as is the mad wizard. It’s community topics this week as we touch on the Polymorph spell as a starting point and then move over to if you should let new players bend or break the rules because they’re trying to be awesome or keeping them reigned in. After that we go back to the Underdark to chat with Breunor Battlehammer and wrangle another two dozen plus NPCs. I’m totally feeling it as we get down.

Hey Folks. We were at Running GAGG and thought we’d record some stuff a our panel of play better games damn it so we did with Shawn Merwin from Down with D&D and John Arcadian, Webmaster to the stars. Both are members of the Encoded Designs consortium and we talk about Encoded a bit before taking questions from the audience. This is sort of a bonus episode but since in numerical order the Star Wars special threw things off I decided to number it so we can have Episode 200 fall on March 22nd.

Getting down means getting out this time as the PCs need to escape from the Underdark in chapter 7 of Out of the Abyss. Segment two has us looking at Kits of Old and how the most recent Unearthed Arcana article is updating a few of them. Remember, you gotta get down to get up. Peace.
