Episode 152: New Year Edition

This week, we talk about a couple different issues- first we discuss pre-written modules (particularly when the players level up within one), and then we talk about what to do when the DM describes a scene and then the room goes silent. Haven't we all been in that situation before?

Since we just started it (we recorded this episode before the last one went out) we don't yet have a winner for our Unearthed Tips & Tricks drawing- but we will next week!

Would you like to enter the drawing? It's easy- just e-mail us at InterPartyConflict@gmail.com with "Unearthed Tips & Tricks" in the subject line! It's that easy! And remember- this is a new product, so if you won one of our earlier drawings, you can enter again!

And remember, Crit Academy is just one of the great podcasts in the Critnation Fellowship! For more podcasts, visit our friends at Brute Force and Ignorance, and the (unfortunately ended) D&D Character Lab! And for books, adventures, and videos, check out Goblin StoneLoresmythAurican's LairJeff Stevens, and The Kind GM!

See you next week, with some special guests!
