Episode 186: The Gabe-Jeff Effect

Hello everyone! We're here with another great episode- and this time, we're talking about the Matt Mercer Effect- that is, when new players get into D&D after listening or watching a popular program such as Critical Role, and then get disappointed when the game fails to live up to their expectations. Is it a problem? Is there a way to fix it? We try and tackle this topic (and more) on this week's episode, so give us a listen!

And the inaugural winner of our giveaway for Crit Academy's Unearthed Tips & Tricks: Volume II is Dustun F! Congratulations, Dustun! Be sure to leave Crit Academy a review, so they can keep on making great products! They're a great group and would love to use your feedback to improve their products in the future.

Would YOU like a chance to win a copy of Unearthed Tips & Tricks Volume II? It's a great book (that I helped write!) and all you have to do to win is enter our drawing by sending us an e-mail with "Unearthed Tips & Tricks 2" in the subject line. (Gotta have that 2 in there though!) It's that easy!

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 time, at high noon (or close to it)!
