Back again, with another special guest!

Hey, everyone! This week we've got yet another special guest- Damian, the DM from the actual play podcast Adventures in Erylia! In this episode we have a great time talking about house rules, making death more meaningful, and how to keep an NPC from becoming the ever-dreaded DMPC (plus a bunch of other stuff I had to cut for time- stay tuned in case we ever release an outtakes episode). So give us a listen, and check out Damian's podcast too! I've been listening to it since around their first few episodes and I think it's a lot of fun.

As usual, check out the other members of the Critnation Fellowship- Crit Academy and D&D Character Lab are our fellow podcasts, and LoresmythGoblin Stone, and Aurican's Lair are content creators that you should definitely check out. And be sure to go to to get yourself a free audiobook, and us some free money!

Thanks everyone, and I hope you all have a great week!

Questions answered this episode:

1. When does an NPC become a DMPC? And how hard should you work to stop an NPC from being integrated into the party?

2. What is your favourite campaign or table specific house rule? It doesn't have to be one that you always bring to the table, but perhaps one that really worked thematically with a certain campaign.
