Along with our birthday, comes a big announcement!

So, Twitter just informed me that today is our birthday. (I set the Twitter account's birthday as the day we recorded our first episode, so here we are.) So to celebrate this joyous occasion, we have a very important announcement!

Today is the day that we launched our Patreon campaign. What is a Patreon, you ask? It's a service where you can pledge to donate a small amount of money per month, and in return we can give you rewards for it. It's not mandatory, you won't receive any less content if you don't donate, but you will receive extra content if you do. If you want more information, or to find out what sort of rewards we're offering, then check our campaign out at Http://www.patreon.com/interpartyconflict. And whether you're able to donate or not, we want to thank you all for following us this long, and here's to another year! *clink*

This week's episode is all about running a high magic campaign vs. a low magic campaign. There's also some fun bits in there about regicide and the fall of the French army, but hey, let's keep it to the good times, eh?

And as usual, be sure to visit the other members of the Critnation Fellowship- Crit Academy and D&D Character Lab for great podcasts, and LoresmythGoblin Stone, and Aurican's Lair for new gaming products.

Thanks, everyone!

Questions answered this episode:

1. When creating a high-magic campaign setting, how do I make the player characters feel more "magical" without unbalancing the game?

2. Do you think 5E lends itself to a no (or very low) magic campaign? And if so, how would you do it? Would you just flavor the magic as something else? Or would you just keep the magic out of it?
