Episode 237: More Bad News Edition

Welcome back! This week we've got another set of fun topics- what to do if you end up with too many players, what book is best to have on a desert island, and why we think players make new characters instead of reviving dead ones- even if it starts off with another bummer announcement! (You'd think the bummers would stop eventually, right? Right?) We won't let it keep us down, so come along for another fun ride!

This week's winner of Seawood Scribe's Witch class supplement is DarbonneLJ! Congratulations! You should be getting that in your email soon. Be sure to leave Seawood Scribe a review, so he can continue making great products in the future!

Want to enter to win a copy of this great supplement? It's easy- just send us an e-mail with "Hocus Pocus" in the subject line. It's that simple!

And if you're more interested in something tangible, you're in luck! We still have two more fantastic drawings for fantastic leather goods from MaumeeRiverLeather.com, and the next one- for the amazing carved leather false book- is going to be taking place on Tuesday, October 12th. 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. Don't miss out!

And remember, for more podcasts, visit our friends at Crit AcademyBrute Force and IgnoranceThe Kind GM, and D&D Character Lab! And for books, adventures, and videos, check out Goblin StoneLoresmythAurican's Lair, and Jeff Stevens!

Catch us next time, where we might accidentally end up with nine guests! (Not really, but what if?)

Question(s) answered this episode:

1. I sent out too many invitations and now I have nine players. Any tips?

2. Desert Island question: You can take one DnD book. Which do you take?

3. Why do people usually roll new characters when they die (instead of trying to revive the old one)?

Episode 236: FIGHT!!!

Hot off the heels of our downer announcement last week, we've come back swinging (and kicking, and Hadoken-ing?) into another great episode. This week we talk about a theoretical D&D fighting game, using the Wish spell to rewrite your character's existence, traps that explode from caltrops, and more. Oh! And in case you thought we forgot, we didn't! We've also got the first winner of our three leather product drawings, so strap in!

The winner of the beautiful black-and-red leatherbound journal, handcrafted by the great people over at MaumeeRiverLeather.com, is....

....The Beverage Tea!

Congratulations to Mr. Beverage, but to everyone else, don't worry! We still have two more fantastic drawings, and the next one- for the amazing carved leather false book- is going to be taking place on Tuesday, October 12th. 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. Again, there's only ONE WEEK LEFT to get this journal, but plenty of time to enter the other two drawings!

And another reminder- next week we're starting our giveaway for Seawood Scribe's Witch class supplement! To enter the drawing, send us an e-mail with "Hocus Pocus" in the subject line!

Episode 235 - The Episode that was Coming Eventually

We're back! This week we're starting off with a very important announcement; you'll want to make sure you listen to the first few minutes if nothing else. Once that's over, though, we're talking about two things that obviously should never be in D&D: guns in a fantasy setting, and tolerance for rules lawyers! So come along and follow with us.

And a final reminder- only ONE WEEK LEFT until Tuesday, September 14th, the first drawing for our three leather giveaways! Next week we're going to be doing the drawing for the beautiful black-and-red leatherbound journal, handcrafted by the great people over at MaumeeRiverLeather.com! 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. Again, there's only ONE WEEK LEFT to get this journal, but plenty of time to enter the other two drawings!

And another cool announcement- we're starting another supplement giveaway too! If you want to win a free copy of Seawood Scribe's Witch class supplement just in time for the spookiest part of the year, send us an e-mail with "Hocus Pocus" in the subject line!
