Episode 83 - The One (and only one) About Grappling

Alright, everyone- I've been dreading this episode for a long time. We got this discussion topic a little while back, and now that we've covered it, I can confidently say we will never be revisiting it again in the foreseeable future. In case you hadn't guessed, this episode is about one of the most obtuse and overly-complicated mechanics to ever hit D&D: Grappling. (We had planned on covering several rules-heavy topics this episode, but... well, grappling kind of stole the show and refused to give it back unless we could succeed on multiple grapple checks... oh man, I'm having flashbacks...)

One thing I want to make sure everyone knows about- on September 3rd (Labor Day) we're going to be doing an arcade game livestream as part of our patreon goals! (But don't worry, it'll be open to everyone, not just patrons.) The stream will be from 6-9pm EST, and we should be hosting it on Youtube on Jeff's FriendQuest channel. So come along and watch us play some classic arcade games, and if you have any games you want us to play, send Jeff an email at TheFriendQuest@gmail.com!

This week's winner of our Chapel on the Cliffs drawing is Colin W! Congratulations, Colin! Let me know if you haven't gotten your copy after a day or two. And once you get it, be sure to leave Goblin Stone a review so they can keep making great products!

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

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!

Thanks for listening, and from now on, take your grapple-related questions elsewhere!
