Episode 90- only ten away from 100!

Hello, loyal listeners! This week, we're back in the studio with some fun topics: Passing notes at the gaming table, making encounters more diverse than simply "kill the bad guy", and the nitty-gritty of how Unarmored Defense works in D&D. Come along for the ride, and let us know how you dealt with some of these issues in your own game!

This week's winner of our Chapel on the Cliffs drawing is Adam G! Congratulations, Adam! You should get your copy within the next 48 hours. If you like it (or if you don't) be sure to leave Goblin Stone a review!

Questions answered this episode:

1. What's your opinion on passing notes during the game? (Also, what was the best note you passed?)

2. Can you suggest any ways other than defeating all the enemies to make combat encounters more diverse? Rescuing a hostage, escaping a trap, keeping a rope bridge intact, stuff like that. What were some of your favorite encounters where the goal was not just total destruction?

3. Do you think that someone with Unarmored Defense (such as a Monk or Barbarian) should retain that AC bonus even when unable to defend themselves, such as when they are grappled or knocked prone?

Episode 89: The Episode That Launched While Gabe Was On Vacation

Hello, everyone! Sorry for the delay in this blog post- I was actually out of town all week on vacation, and just didn't have time at a computer to get all of this together. (The episode still launched on schedule- maybe a few hours early, actually- but this blog post got delayed.) But we've got a great episode for you- we cover a big topic: the trope of blind characters. Whether you should allow them, how they should be done, and so on. We also talk a bit about other types of handicaps for player characters as well. I hope you all enjoy it as much as I enjoyed my vacation!

This week's winner of our Chapel on the Cliffs drawing is Peter F! Congratulations, Peter! You should get your copy within the next 48 hours. If you like it (or if you don't) be sure to leave Goblin Stone a review!

Episode 88: Discuss It While I Go get A Snack

Hello, everyone! Welcome back for another fun episode of Inter-Party Conflict. On this episode, we talk about a few things that may have come up in your games before- planning battles without the DM knowing, that time the DM rolled some dice to determine what an NPC was going to do, and that time everyone died but you and now what? Well, we have some good times talking about these topics (and more) on this episode, and I hope you enjoy them too!

This week's winner of our Chapel on the Cliffs drawing is Tim D! Congratulations, Tim! You should get your copy within the next 48 hours. If you like it (or if you don't) be sure to leave Goblin Stone a review!
