Hot off the heels of our downer announcement last week, we've come back swinging (and kicking, and Hadoken-ing?) into another great episode. This week we talk about a theoretical D&D fighting game, using the Wish spell to rewrite your character's existence, traps that explode from caltrops, and more. Oh! And in case you thought we forgot, we didn't! We've also got the first winner of our three leather product drawings, so strap in!
....The Beverage Tea!
Congratulations to Mr. Beverage, but to everyone else, don't worry! We still have two more fantastic drawings, and the next one- for the amazing carved leather false book- is going to be taking place on Tuesday, October 12th. To enter the drawing, all you need to do is leave us a review on the platform of your choice, and send us a photo. Again, there's only ONE WEEK LEFT to get this journal, but plenty of time to enter the other two drawings!
And another reminder- next week we're starting our giveaway for Seawood Scribe's Witch class supplement! To enter the drawing, send us an e-mail with "Hocus Pocus" in the subject line!
