Episode 29, the one with the questions

Hey, guys!

Here's episode 29. We talk about rituals, building encounters, and how to know whether your players are enjoying your campaign. And some other stuff too, but who's counting?

This episode brings with it a big announcement: We now have an Audible sponsorship! If you enjoy listening to audiobooks (which you probably do) then go to Audibletrial.com/conflict to get an audiobook of your choice 100% free! They have 180,000 titles to choose from so I'm sure there's plenty that will interest you, and it won't cost you anything!

Thanks to everyone for your submissions, and if you have any more please send them to InterPartyConflict@gmail.com! We can always use more Dragon's Hoard items, Funeral Pyre stories, or just questions about how to make your game the best it can be.

Oh, and of course, be sure to check out Crit Academy! If you like us and you like them, stay tuned- there may very well be some collaborations in the near future. :-)

Questions answered this episode:

1. Have you used any rituals or exorcism style encounters and have any tips or know of any good resources for ideas on how to design them?

2. How can a DM effectively deal with monsters with multiple abilities/skills?

3. What are some general tips for running a combat encounter to make the best and most interesting use of a monster's abilities?

4. What is the best indicator that I should be running more episodic adventures rather than a long linked campaign? You have talked before about the risks between doing one or the other, but are there any signs I should be looking for?

5. Have you ever done a campaign just so you could use an idea you had?


Noteworthy links:

Percy Jackson & the Olympians, a genuinely great Young Adult fantasy series you should read

The Last Exorcism - I mentioned this movie in the podcast and I was hesitant to post this trailer because I really don't think it does a good job of showing what the movie is like. (It makes it seem a lot more generic than it is.) In any case, I recommend you watch this movie!

The Executioner's Chariot, a cool boss from Dark Souls 2

Matthew Colville, a GREAT Youtuber who's got a great series of videos on running (and playing) D&D
