To enter the drawing, all you need to do is leave us a review on the platform of your choice, and send us a photo. It's coming up soon, so be sure to get that to us ASAP!

Episode 234: How Appropriate


Question(s) answered this episode:

1. Of all of the official 5e modules, which stick out to you as best for adventurers of each level bracket (1-5, 6-11, 12+)?

2. When is it OK to wrangle in new players who enjoy playing but are very chaotic in their play-style (wanting to fight every peasant who looks at them wrong, or has very little forethought/compassion for others outside of the party)?

3. Charisma: Should the player's words matter or should you treat the stat like all the others?
