Episode 201: Fifth Year Begins

Hello everyone, and welcome to our newest year! This week we're back to our usual shenanigans (though we had a lot of fun with the Listener Submissions episode- don't be surprised if we do that again sometime) and we've hit the ground running. We're discussing our hopes for D&D releases in 2021, as well as some tips for using consumables in encounters (even if those were meant as treasure). We have a lot of fun in this episode, so hopefully you agree!

And this week's winner of our giveaway for Crit Academy's Unearthed Tips & Tricks: Volume II is Ravel G! Congratulations, Ravel! 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!

Catch you next time, unless I accidentally drink next week's episode!

Question(s) answered this episode:

1. What would you like to see for official d&d content for 2021?

2. Oftentimes in modules, baddies will be described as having useful consumables as treasure items. As a DM, is it good, bad, or acceptable to use these consumables and not leave them as loot for the PCs?
