Advantage to Insight – Episode 1: Prep

eyeHey 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.

Pre-Production Notes

“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

Alex’s notes:

DM 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?

Wayne’s notes:

What are you preparing?

Prep which layer of game

  • Setting (home brew or established)
  • Campaign (module or no)
  • Story Arc (chapter)
  • Session
  • How comfortable are you with prep

Prep vs improv

Thank you Chris of Misdirected Mark

DwD&D#46 – Pop Culture D&D and OotA Final

DownwithD&DAre 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.
