Episode 159: Ten-Page Edition

Welcome back once again, listeners! A couple weeks ago we had to change up our recording schedule a bit due to some scheduling conflicts but as of this week's recording we should be back on track. (I feel like I can always recognize a difference in our episodes when we have to record two episodes in one day; I wonder if any of our listeners do. Probably not.) This week we're talking about character backstories- how much is too much? Is there a such thing as too little? (I actually don't recall if we covered that. I'm going to answer... yes?) We also talk about some other stuff but you'll hear it in the episode.

This week's winner of our Unearthed Tips & Tricks drawing is Bill G! Congratulations, Bill! You should get your copy within the next few days. Whenever you have a chance to read it over, be sure to leave Crit Academy a review! They're a great group and would love to use your feedback to improve their products.

Would you like to enter the drawing? It's easy- just e-mail us at with "Unearthed Tips & Tricks" in the subject line! It's that easy! And remember- this is a new product, so if you won one of our earlier drawings, you can enter again!

And remember, Crit Academy is just one of the great podcasts in the Critnation Fellowship! For more podcasts, visit our friends at Brute Force and Ignorance, and the (unfortunately ended) D&D Character Lab! And for books, adventures, and videos, check out Goblin StoneLoresmythAurican's LairJeff Stevens, and The Kind GM!

See you next week!
