Episode 44 - The Guest with the Best!

Hey, everyone!

This week we have a great episode for you- our close friend, the great DM, Chris (Real Chris, not Tennessee Chris) is here with us! I hadn't had a chance to hang out with him in quite a long time, so we got to spend the day hanging out, playing arcade games (insert arcade sound effect here) and talk D&D. I think this is a great episode, and Jeff and I are so glad we got to have him on. Maybe again sometime! We'll see.

In this episode we talk about narrative vs. genre simulation, how to build a city, and how long to stick with a group you aren't meshing with.. I knew Chris would be a perfect guest for these topics since I know he's got lots of experience in all of them; but then again Chris has experience in every area of the hobby so he's always a perfect guest.

As usual, help us generate funds with our Audible partnership by going to to get yourself a free audiobook, and us some free money we can use to make the podcast better! And of course check out the other podcasts on the Critnation Fellowship- Crit Academy and D&D Character Lab- as well as the content creators LoresmythGoblin Stone, and Aurican's Lair!

Thanks everyone, and I hope you have a wonderful week!
