Tabletop RPG Featured Image

Session 0 is part of the preliminary planning part of any major campaign, and it’s one thing that I had never done before yesterday, but having finally done one I cannot recommend it enough.

Dungeons and Dragons

The one-off D&D nights have become a weekly event for us. It’s still a lot of fun and I really feel like I am improving significantly at being a DM.

One-Shot Adventures Are Wicked Fun

Dungeons and Dragons

Yesterday at work I was rather bored and was surfing some Reddit to kill the time. Specifically, I was perusing through /r/dnd for some ideas for my campaign that I’ve been working on.
