Episode 72- Dice, Dice, and More Dice (and Some Other Stuff Too)

Hey, everyone! We're back with another episode. This time, we talk about how to help someone overcome their fear of DMing, whether or not to use a computer while you play, and then a whole bunch of mini-questions about dice and dice practices. It's a lot of fun, so I hope you all enjoy it!

This episode also introduces a new (mini) segment- our Social Media Question section. Every week (since we started the podcast) I've been posting a discussion question on social media (Facebook, Reddit, and Twitter) for our listeners. At the suggestion of Damian from Adventures in Erylia, I've decided to incorporate these into our show! It seems a little clunky at the moment because of our recording schedule (we record about a week in advance, so the questions get posted several days after we record but a couple days before the episode airs...) but hopefully it'll work out. We'll be giving our own answers to these questions, as well as reading some listener answers as well! So if you reply to us on social media, we're likely to read your replies on-air!

We're also doing great on our Patreon (more on that next episode) thanks to all of you out there! If you'd like to become a patron, go to Patreon.com/InterPartyConflict and see if any of the our rewards catch your eye. You'll be helping the show and getting cool stuff in return!

This week's Chapel on the Cliffs drawing winner is Kaden G! Congratulations, Kaden! If you haven't received an e-mail within the next 24 hours then contact me and we'll get you sorted out. And be sure to visit Goblin Stone and let them know what you think!

If anyone else would like to enter the drawing, just e-mail us at InterPartyConflict@gmail.com with "Chapel on the Cliffs" in the subject line. That's all you have to do!

And remember, Goblin Stone is just one of the great content creators in the Critnation Fellowship! For more books and adventures, check out LoresmythAurican's Lair, and Jeff Stevens- and for more podcasts, visit our friends at Crit Academy and D&D Character Lab!

See you next time!

Questions answered this episode:

1. How do you help someone gather the courage to DM if they are intimidated by the time and effort?

2. How much do you involve your computer as a DM or even a player?

3. Dice!...  How many do you have?  Can you have too many?  Are you "Dice Superstitious?"  For example... Do you let other players roll yours?  Have you played with know anyone who won't. Have you ever "retired" a die for a session because it kept rolling bad, or roll your dice in a "lucky" die tray or tower only? And finally, do you ever roll, or let your players roll,  the to hit die and damage die at the same time?
