Episode 26- and a surprise milestone!

Hey, everyone! It's another week, and another episode of Inter-Party Conflict. We discuss finding a group, using the same monster over and over, taking initiative and developing characters and campaigns. We had some (very minor) audio issues during this episode, but I put a disclaimer at the beginning just in case it bothers anyone. I'm also going to be looking into creating a custom website for us- as utilitarian as this blog is, I'll be the first to admit it doesn't look all that great and after finding out how Justin at Crit Academy designed their website I'm going to try and make one too. So keep your fingers crossed that we might have one in the upcoming weeks.

In this episode (way at the end) I also mention a new segment that I'd like to include! It's going to be called the Funeral Pyre, and we'll be reading listener stories about a memorable character death. It could be your first character death, or one where the dice stabbed you in the back, or just one where your character went out in a blaze of glory. If you have any character death stories you want to share, or if you want to submit an item for the Dragon's Hoard, or you have questions for us to discuss, please send them to InterPartyConflict@gmail.com!

Questions answered this episode:

1. What is the best way to go about finding or starting a game?

2. Are there any methods you can recommend to make rolling for initiative simpler? Also have you ever had a DM or been a DM who keeps forgetting a player's turn frequently and is there a trick to correcting this habit?

3. As a DM, how does one break out of the habit of just using the same type of monster over and over?

4. How do you plan out your campaigns? What do you think is the best way to plan out a campaign?

5. What are some ways to get players to develop their characters more? Should I let players be as two dimensional as they like if they are having fun?

In this episode, I mentioned a monster called the Gravorg from the 3rd Edition Monster Manual 2. Click this link for its stats and description; once you've done that, Click Here for the official artwork depicting one. Something about the two seems a bit off.
