  1. Breaking D&D is Bad and Backgrounds, Bonds & Flaws

    first time listening just a note on the power gamers trying to control a table… as a GM a power gamer can be put into check by gearing loot rewards towards the other players to keep characters in balance…. if you have a power fighter make loot and gear ..magical items etc tough to come by for the power gamer make that +3 sword in the module into a dagger or mace instead… etc make that power fighter play with his rusty chipped sword and dented and rusty armor to keep your party balanced Its up to the GM to keep his/her party balanced so everyone has a chance to shine.

    About the Hosts

    Greg Tito has had weird and long career as an Off Broadway stage manager, a playwright, a theater carpenter, a secretary, an RPG designer, a games journalist, and now a PR/Marketing person. He has loved Dungeons & Dragons ever since 1985 when he found an old copy of the AD&D Dungeon Master’s Guide on his brother’s bookshelf and he honed that love of fantasy storytelling in the dark streets of Sasserine by way of the Upper West Side gaming group he joined in 2004. He moved his family (wife + two young kids) to Seattle in 2015 to work on D&D and he’s never looked back. You can find Greg on Twitter.

    Shelly Mazzanoble will always play a magic-user. There. She said it. Enough pretending to want to break out of her comfort zone. She’s a magic-user. She’s also the brand lead for Avalon Hill and loves talking about that one time she played Diplomacy and SOMEONE (okay, it was Ben Petrisor) stabbed her in the back and took over her beloved Russia. If you enjoy tales of sorcery, board game upheavals, and reasons her 3 year-old is crying (HINT: She tried to make him eat a Nutella crepe), find Shelly on Twitter and Facebook.

    Bart Carroll has been a part of Wizards of the Coast since 2004, having worked with the Star Wars, G.I. Joe, Magic: the Gathering and Dungeons & Dragons brands through the years. He’s also been a D&D player since 1980 (with fond memories of coloring the illustrations in his 1st Edition Monster Manual), and is thrilled that his current role includes the D&D website and Dragon+. His favorite monster is the brain in a jar. You can find Bart on Twitter.

  9. Into the Greyspine Mines - Critical Role RPG Show: Episode 2

    For more Geek&Sundry role-playing, watch Season 2 of LARPs! http://bit.ly/LARPS_S2

    After Scanlon Shorthalt brought the abomination of a Naga to it’s tortured end, the Vox Machina vowed to Nostoc Greyspine to put an end to the darkness now bubbling up out of the bowls of the earth. The team quickly gears up and makes their way into the mine, and begins a miles long trek down into the veins of Khaloor. After many hours wandering the dark, they reach a subterranean river within a massive, inky cavern where they are are attacked by a pair of umberhulks. The beasts are dispatched without too much difficulty, but in a fit of rage and shortsightedness, Grog charges toward a flickering light further off in the cavern. He stumbles across several Duergar, dark cousins of the dwarves above, as well as a skittering, four legged brain. The wretched thing is killed quickly, but not before lashing out at Grog’s psyche. The goliath’s mind is broken, and he falls to the ground in a heap.
