Let’s get down with what the WotC folks think is the new way to make situations to mess up your players and get down with some monsters and foes. We also hit up a little of what’s new and then get into our personal Grab Bag tips for things we do in games.

Get Down, or maybe it’s get up. Anyway things are looking up for the giants as we raise the rocks on a Great Upheaval and see what’s inside chapter one of Storm Kings Thunder. We also look at what was lurking inside the most recent issue of Dragon +. Hope you enjoy and keep on getting down with D&D.

Lets get down with some more sentiment. It’s what does D&D mean to you this time as we go to the community with Randy Farmer among others, and outside of it to some others who work on and around D&D. We have audio from James Intercaso, Phil Vecchione, and Greg Marks. We have words from Mike Mearls and Chris Sims, and we hear Shawn Merwin’s thoughts on D&D and what it means to him. Get Down.

Let’s get down and we’re doing it without the Mad Wizard Merwin. That’s right. I went to my very deep bench to grab some friends to talk about what D&D means to them. I have Mark, Tom, and Brett to help me out, get down, and spin some wonderful tales about family and gaming. So get in and get down and lets go kill some monsters.

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.
