    By now I've talked to most if not all of the DMs that ran multiple sessions during Living D&D and I got a chance to participate in a session of. I'm putting together a little gift for each of these wonderful DMs and I'd like to keep track of everything in this thread. I'll be updating with pictures as I finish my little project. With that said I suppose I should let you in on the project. I'm making or DMs a home made Dice Tray! Each one will be different and totally unique as well as come with a set of 7 Dice that they all have already chosen through PMs in Discord. I'm having a ton of fun working in my wood workshop and really wanted a way to thank these individuals for introducing everyone to an amazingly fun game so I figured I'd put my amateurish skills to work making some gifts in the spirit of D&D. Like I said, I'll be updating this with pictures as I finish things and once all of them are finished I'll go through the process of letting the DMs choose which one they would like. Thank you again everyone for making Living D&D an amazing experience and that is not limited to only the DMs. I'm talking about all the people that participated in these sessions and maybe found a new passion! For clarification there are 7 DMs that had run repeated sessions to whom I'm making Dice Trays for (provided they are interested). @MadCast: Munsa(the ring leader) - Purple Dice https://imgur.com/2wt2Yvp @MadCast: VoShay - Light Green Dice https://imgur.com/xR3s1fC @MadCast: JigglesTheFett - Red Dice https://imgur.com/IneW606 @MadCast: Khaos - Sparkly Blue Dice https://imgur.com/1zCYSen @MadCast: Kal - Smokey Blue Dice https://imgur.com/xnaxVq2 @MadCast: The Prince - Forest Green Dice https://imgur.com/xYu2eqx @MadCast: Starlight - Opted out

    Hello all! I am incredibly pleased to announce that the first episode of what was originally being called a 'DM Workshop event' that transformed into a podcast! We have an official name for it now. Tableshop: Talking Shop On Tabletop. The first episode is currently available on anchor.fm and spotify, and will be trickling out to the other major podcast providers within the next day or two so you can easily grab it from whatever podcast source you choose! The link to the main public page is here: https://anchor.fm/tableshop Please be advised that this first episode is very rough, and we're finding our bearings, but this has the potential to grow into something fantastic for us, and for any of you that want to learn more about what happens behind that ever present screen. Please drop any comments you may have here, and look forward to another thread soon where you can ask questions to be answered in upcoming episodes!

    MadCast, I've noticed a few of our higher ups (@MadCast: Kitty Stark, @MadCast: The Prince, and @MadCast: RedJustice) have each included preferred pronouns in their Discord names. Discord holds a 32 character limit in nicknames so "MadCast: (They/Them)" takes up 20 characters leaving some of us with longer Discord names (including myself,) unable to add the preference without either altering the "MadCast:" tag, or our nicknames a la name change requests. Therefore I propose we add a #self-roles channel where you can include preferred gender pronouns. There's a wonderful bot that you can use to implement in the Discord for self assigning roles. *an example. Thoughts?

    Hewwo, I'm Speccles, new in this community, I randomly played league with this dude named Qrow on my team and he introduced me to you guys! I have also been friends with Panty for a while and recently met Kitty! (She's amazing btw) I'm a Bulgarian girl, currently living in Canada, moved when I was 8. I know three languages; Bulgarian, English, and French while currently studying Spanish. I love gaming as a hobby, as well as reading, singing, drawing, and doing designing stuff for friends. I accept cakes as payment, and if you don't have cakes, hugs are always welcome. The VERY basic information: -I love purple -I love animals -I'm most likely younger than all of you -A girl questioning if she likes that girl more or that guy more -I don't like bugs and particularly scared of spiders The games I currently play are mainly League and WoW. I would love to find some new games to play with people and friends. My in-game username is usually Speccles, but for certain things I might change it to SpecOfWonder120. I hope someday I become a full member. Nice to meet you! 🌸

    So I know I've been talking about this for months now and it might feel like I've been blowing smoke but you all can count this as an official announcement of sorts and some background on WTF I've been doing and why shit has taken so long. As many of you might know I've gotten back into streaming and I've been very much enjoying it. Within a relatively short period I made Twitch Affiliate, and MadCast's community has been the biggest part of that happening. A big thank you to all of you for your support on that end. That said, it has been taking up a significant chunk of my time as I work to refine my stream and make things better. I've also been working on the Tableshop Podcast hosted by Jiggles with several other DMs in the community. This has also been a fun endeavor, and while not terribly time consuming it is one of the many things that have sorta made me really have to work through my schedule and how I can do the games I want to do. About That Vampire Game... I didn't stop working on it. What I wanted to do here got delayed, but it is still happening. The delay comes because I mentioned that I wanted to play games with more POC and I was offered the opportunity to do just that. I'm working with several BIPOC to stream my Philly By Night Chronicle and that's actively in the works as we speak (already had session 0). Since that happened, I've decided that I'm going to run that game in tandem with the game I run here. How exactly that will work is still up in the air. However, my general idea is that if my stream group decides they want to be Anarchs (which sounds like that is the way they are leaning) then the group here will be Camarilla. They will exist in the same world and things that each group does may have effects on the other group as well. That does not mean the MadCast group has to or will be on stream, ever unless they really are interested in doing that. However, their may be references on stream to what you all have done/are doing in those games. Again, that is still being worked out for exact deets, but I suspect you'll see our first session live at the beginning of August. In the meantime, one thing I don't need to wait for to start is my Acquisition's Incorporated D&D game. Personally, this is one of my favorite campaign books for D&D and I've been itching to play/DM in this setting since my at home game fell apart. I would like to stream this on my channel, which would require folks to be on cam and play on a set schedule for ~3hrs per session weekly or bi-weekly. I know some folks have shown interest in here already and thus I'll be following this post with general interest thread for that campaign. I cannot promise that everyone will be able to play like in LD&D, but I will promise that I'll do my best to ensure that I pick people in a fair manner. Since both things I mentioned are pretty long-term campaigns, I do want to talk about other things that I was working on that have sort of fell by the wayside. There was a D&D game/setting that @MadCast: RedJustice and I were working on that is currently shelved. Red got hella busy with work and personally I didn't want to take her idea as my own and not do it the justice (pun intended) it deserved without her input. Doesn't mean it'll never happen, just means it's put on the backburner for now. That said, if any of you managed to pick up the "Bundle for Racial Justice and Equality" from Itch.io you'll see that there are a plethora of TTRPGs in that bundle. I'd love to play them with the community. I'm looking into scheduling time to run one-shots of many of these games with folks, and I'd love to include as many folks as I can in these games! Still working out the schedule for it, but this is something I definitely want to do and will certainly be looking to stream in the coming months. Take a look at the filter for physical games in that bundle and let me know which ones sound interesting to you in this thread. I think that's all I have for now. I'm drawing up the Acq Inc post following this one and I general idea of what availability I have for scheduling. Thank you all for taking the time to read this and feel free to hit me up about anything here on Discord or in this thread.

    I found this channel and their history content a couple of years ago and I adore it. Each episode is about 10-15 minutes of history told through silly animations and quips. The series about Bismark is my personal favorite but they have series on a wide array of topics. If you're looking for something cool to binge, I highly recommend this.

    Guys, this was great!!! I know you were saying production value was a little lacking for an Episode 1, but compared to other podcasts I've heard, this was way better (esp for an Ep 1) !!! Audio was clear, which was really solid and the most important thing for me. I hate hollow or echoey audio. All of you sounded quite nice and clear. I think pacing can definitely improve. Tightening it up would do wonders for it's listenability, some of which can be in post, but if done live would add more urgency and purpose to each thought. - "Tell me more" and it's expansion on it was very nice. I think around 30 min mark IIRC.

    I've been playing or running (more the latter than former) Tabletop RPGs for twenty years now, and I've developed a lot of opinions. As I was discussing these opinions recently, I realized I was, in many ways, effectively writing blog posts. So I decided to start sharing them here. Please comment and critique as you like since I do like discussing ideas. #1: The Problem at the heart of simulationist gaming (Context: Discussing the problem of how D&D is an ‘Action-Oriented’ game where players decide what mechanical course they take and then make the fiction fit it, vs. other games where the fiction can be first and the player/GM activates the mechanic in response) Let’s look at this through the lens of a session. In that session, the party has a known objective, that requires multiple steps to succeed at, and they have multiple ways to attempt those steps. We can also consider this from the perspective of multiple systems but I am using D&D. Let’s start with the objective. The party is seeking the location of an artifact. The person they *know* has the location is the owner of an inn and tavern with connections to the underworld. They need to find some way to have the owner divulge that information. They need to do that or find some other method to get the information. This brings a few obvious, broad ways to do this: 1) The party could look over their resources, make a plan, and attempt to make it happen. 2) The party could set up the pieces of a plan, then attempt to pull it off. 3) The party could kick in the door and roll with the punches, trying to be nimble on their feet (This is not specifically violence, just lack of planning). Let’s start with the lens of D&D, specifically 5e but not only (the problem in this paragraph is far worse back in 3.5). In the first idea, the party looks at their resources- They look at their spells, their abilities, their items, their good skills; the obvious place to look for ways to resolve the problem. They discuss various ways to combine these actions, of which many of them have dozens potentially (all proficient skills, potentially relevant items, abilities, and spells), and usually don’t think much beyond using them in obvious, or laterally proficient ways (Using an endless decanter of water in a variety of ways that involve *lots of water* are all potentially creative, lateral solutions, but they are about using the endless decant of water as a thing that produces lots of water). They come to these ideas either before the attempt, or at an unexpected problem. No matter how they go about it, they start from the solution (I can cast charm person, I have goggles of darkvision, I have x) on the piece of paper, and then work backwards to make it a thing their character does. This feels like a flexible adventure game or a puzzle game to me. In Fate, the party consults about 10 things per player- their top 3 skills, their 3 middle skills, their 3-5 stunts if they choose to do that. With a much smaller range of abilities, players often lean instead into their character and go ‘how would Bob go about this’ in a way many D&D players don’t get the chance to really think about, or under-consider. In PbtA, you can’t really do this long-form planning well, because the nature of the game is *incredibly* fluid. Second go- they attempt to put stuff into play. D&D isn’t super great at this (most of the abilities are pointed at solutions for right now- Banishment gets rid of a bad guy for a minute, sure charm person lasts up to an hour at least, but then fly lasts 10 minutes- none of this is setting up the Han Solo Prison Bust from Star Wars so to speak). Players may, after consulting a dozen or more abilities per sheet, drop this idea and go to the first or last idea. If they instead pursue this idea, *my experience in D&D but not necessarily the norm* is that the following problems can crop up: 1. The GM may be inflexible to allow a lateral approach to the *entire* obstacle course because it will invalidate a lot of prep and may in fact require completely winging it or redoing said prep mid-session (or ending session earlier to go do that prep before next). 2. The GM may intentionally or unintentionally punish this attempt by treating failed rolls for unexpected actions to say, charm guards or discover information with closing off all unintended paths/ramping up the difficulty of the final encounter. Since D&D is a resource management sim, taking risky maneuvers to essentially roll a wheel of fortune weighted against you feels *really bad*. 3. Every time you try to creatively solve a problem outside of the now, it’s a discussion/debate/argument/disagreement with the DM(and/or party) because D&D doesn’t have mechanics tech like Fate (aspects) to store long-term narrative information (you flipped this guards and can use them in x way) nor does it embrace fiction first of PbtA where the game doesn’t care really and the GM can just roll with the punch and have the guards or anything) do whatever makes sense to the table with like, 0-6 words that have rules baggage and 0-6 words of flavor. 4. D&D functions a lot like law (due to its open world and simulationist nature) such that while everyone is working from the same set of laws (the DMG/PHB), and there are ‘constitutional scholars’ (@SageAdvice), each judge has absolute authority in their jurisdiction. So when the judge makes precedent, it has wide repercussions, and the hardest place to make lasting, good judgements in things that linger vs the now. This is very different from Fate or PbtA, where the mechanical undergirding create a very specific, robust skeleton of how narrative and mechanics interact then leaves all the fiction in the hands of the players or GM respectively. Third, we **kick down that damn door and let the dice lie how they lie.** In D&D, this often leads to combat not because of the players but because of the system- the most robust tools for dealing with a problem lie in the very defined, very rich combat area. A Fighter has 4 proficient skills (and strong mechanical reasons to not have good stats in any of the best stats for skill use) and often not 1 ability (or spell, or item) that address non-combat action. If they want to do anything based off who their character is *in system,* it’s got to go to combat. On the other end, the biggest promise of the caster is to ‘have a spell for that.’ Drop a grease or a web or a charm person or a banishment and instantly solve the problem of now. So when they go room by room, the group is often encouraged to fall back on the specific actions they have, and use them, which is often combat and often the menu on their sheet. This is especially true when the results of the actions are poorly or confusingly defined. Looking back at that fighter, no matter how much the player wanted that fighter to be particularly charming, even if they put a +3 in CHA and proficiency in Persuasion, the fighter has the following issues: 1. They don’t stand out from other people who care as much as them or more about Persuasion. Whereas their choice to be a fighter makes them stand out in combat noticeably. 2. Their commitment to this idea has narrow results- the fighter now is almost or as good as other players in rolling the persuasion skill, the use of which is defined broadly in the PHB/DMG as ‘talking to someone and getting them to like you/agree with you/do what you want.’ You can’t change how persuasion works, what it works on, what it grants you mechanically, in any way in DnD, especially as not a skill monkey. 3. Persuasion is good is a very narrow space to have all possible mechanical definition of ‘Friendly person people tend to trust.’ (or any other kind of charmer) 4. The fighter has no way to know what rolling persuasion at a specific npc is going to look like. In other systems, the dimensions of the roll are far clearer. If you just go through the door and figure things out as you go in other systems, you have flashbacks in Blades, you have aspects, negotiations, etc. in Fate, and you have ‘see what happens while being a fan’ in PbtA to guide the players through doing whatever they really *want* to do in that room. In D&D, you often fail the persuasion check and then roll initiative. The entire lens of the game is through how to use all the toys on the piece of paper to deal with what is in front of you now. The absence of the massive number of narrow, usually combat toys and the well-defined flexibility of what toys do exist allow far more space to focus on the narrative and be the character- when you get to a spot to roll dice, you’ll negotiate the dice and stakes and then do it in PbtA, Fate, Blades, etc. This difference between staring down the barrel of a very obvious menu system (D&D) and looking at a very limited set of choices (Fate, PbtA) is where the significant difference in Action vs. Check comes to me, for these systems.

    The thoughts of Prince Kevin Jackson: The kindred of the Camarilla are struggling. Not because we have failed in some obvious way. No, the structures of the Camarilla stand firm even through this... pandemic amongst the kine. This is not like the Blood Curse. For many of us, the Blood Curse would almost be preferable. No this is more benign and dangerous. The kine have holed up inside their homes and their governments have largely shut down our normal business operations where we had our herds. To put it simply, our food is too scarce and scattered for us to feed as we used to. Many of kindred have allowed themselves to go feral. Allowing the Beast to inform their actions due to their hunger. There have been thousands of Masquerade violations to the point where even the Anarch "revolutionaries" have begun to put these feral kindred down. Balthazar is not one to complain about work, but even he has told me that this is untenable. I do not disagree. He says that the old ones have left Philadephia and I could easily seize power there. He may be correct. However, I do not know Philadelphia. I have visited a several times, both in life and in unlife. It is densely populated and teeming with kine. I know that our people could easily move about through the night with less problems, but my connections there are not nearly as strong as those here. I know that many throughout the Midwest have already begun the migration. The Nosferatu have been escorting kindred out of the city. Many of them of my own council. Some have gone with my blessing, but some have not. I suppose my power here is diminished no matter the choices I make going forward. Maybe it is time for a change of scenery. I'll need to move swiftly. I have to get to Philly before some fool like Meeks or Scarlett Moon decides to make it their place of power. Fuck. Sovereign was right. I'll never tell him that. But there was truth to his words. It is time to for us be more than we have ever have had to be. ICYMI I'm running a VtM chronicle as the Camarilla counterpart of my Anarch focused Philadelphia by Night chronicle that will be streamed Saturday nights at 9pm Eastern on Twitch. These stories may intersect even if the characters between the games do not. Keep in mind that your characters may be referenced on the stream as well before you choose to sign up. This game will be MadCast exclusive have 5 players and will be played on Tuesdays at 9pm Eastern. I have 3 slots already reserved, but I am looking for two more interested players from the community. The signups for this chronicle are open to all Candidates+ and will be available until Friday August 7th at 11:59pm eastern. After that I'll be following up with folks who are interested and filling the party from there. If you cannot 100% positively make Tuesday nights at 9pm Eastern, please do not sign up. The time and day are non-negotiable for me. If you are interested in playing in this campaign please leave a comment in this thread and a best time/day to contact you for a brief follow-up interview.

    Returning to League

    There are at least a few MadCasters playing ARAMs, Blitz, and casual normals on a daily basis (myself included). Besides the rune changes, additional champions, minor map changes & champion reworks, the game plays largely the same. I would recommend checking out League Mafia as well for some casual shenanigans -- Wednesdays @ 9 P.M EST I've been trying to grind through the pit of despair that is ranked solo queue, but when I'm not doing that I'm down for any game mode!

    The Shadow Title

    Shadow is the title associated with the summer season of 2019, with the Menagerie and the raid Crown of Sorrow. With the Leviathan getting vaulted with the release of Beyond Light, this title will very likely be unobtainable after November. Crown of Sorrow is being the Forsaken DLC paywall, so if you want this title you will need to buy Foresaken. First, as always, you’ll need to complete the Collections badge. In it are all the new Menagerie-themed weapons you get from putting different rune combinations in the Chalice, the sword you get from doing Heroic Menagerie, the weapons from the Crown of Sorrow raid, a Triumph-specific ghost shell, a Triumph-specific sparrow, 4 shaders you get get on Menagerie-themed weapons or armor you get from the Chalice, an emblem for completing a menagerie run, an emblem for completing Crown of Sorrow, a full set of Opulent armor obtained from runes in the Chalice, and a full set of armor from the Crown of Sorrow raid. The ghost shell and the sparrow are connected to triumphs needed for the title, so I’ll go over those later on. Here are some images of rune combinations for the weapons and armor you’ll need. You will need to upgrade enough to be able to get blue runes. Remember that you can pick up runes by opening chests on the barge on Nessus, those chests cost 5000 Glimmer each to open. For the collection badge you will need Rose, the basic hand cannon you get from starting the Lumina quest, but you won’t need Lumina itself (it’s an interesting Exotic hand cannon, but the quest will require some PvP hand cannon kills and a difficult Gambit medal to obtain, so I won’t blame anyone who starts it to pick up Rose and then gets rid of the quest). Now comes all the triumphs. You’ll need to complete 16 of Werner 99-40’s weekly bounties. Werner is the weird robot up in the big golden barge in Watcher’s Grave on Nessus. Every week he’s got 4 different weekly bounties. Some are easy, some aren’t. Start doing those every week. There are 15 triumphs associated with the Menagerie. You’ll need to complete a run of the Menagerie without running out of time during the encounters. This means that you’ll need a little pop-up on the left-hand side of your screen (where buffs and debuffs appear) that says ‘Calus applauds you on your flawless run.’ This doesn’t mean don’t die, this means completing the encounter before the timer up near the top left-hand side of the screen runs out. This might take some time, some figuring out of the mechanics, don’t worry if this takes a little while. You’ll need to complete a run of the Menagerie in a complete set of Opulent gear. This means the Opulent armor set you get from the Chalice. You’ll also need to defeat each of the 3 bosses that can appear in the Menagerie. They rotate weekly, so best to jump in once a week to do a Menagerie run. The bosses are a large Vex Minotaur in a theatre-esque room, a large Hive Ogre in a dark and sandy room, and a large Vex Hydra in large room with a massive open space on one side (this is the room used for about half of the Menagerie encounters). You’ll need to complete the encounters The Riposte, The Hunted, The Arkborn, and The Crystals with time left on the clock, meaning get that flawless run message to pop up. These encounters are fairly straight-forward, the video I’ve linked to explains how they work. With some good coordination/knowing how the encounters work, you should be able to get these fairly quickly. You’ll need to complete The Mockery with all 3 havens preserved. This encounter works like Blind Well in the Dreaming City (if you’ve never run Blind Well, please go run some Blind Well after reading this guide). You’ll have 3 spaces, left, middle, and right, that have a bubble. Staying in the bubble keeps you alive. When you leave the bubble, you’ll have a short timer on a buff called Touch of Sky. This will keep you alive outside the bubble. Once the timer ends, you’ll have a debuff called Touch of the Deep which will slowly kill you unless you return to a bubble. To keep the bubbles up and healthy (for lack of a better word), you’ll need to kill the Sky Eater Wizards that spawn in for the orb they drop and dunk the orbs in the totem inside the bubble. 3 teams of 2 is good with 1 person on each team with some kind of solar weapon to help take down the Wizards’ shields. You’ll need to complete The Gauntlet by having all 6 players complete every lap before time runs out. If you’ve ever run the Leviathan raid, this works similar to that Gauntlet encounter. First you’ll kill enemies, defeat a large Vex boss, then all still living players will teleport into the Gauntlet-running space. You just need to run forward, doing some platforming and avoiding bumping into your teammates, making it through the doorway at the end of each section to continue your timer so you don’t die. You’ll need to do this 3 times with each Gauntlet run being more and more difficult. This can be hard to do, you might need a whole fireteam on voice. There used to be a way to cheese this by firing a grenade launcher over the finish line at the end of each run because it’s very easy to slip and fall, die to fire, or die to the expired timer, it's possible this still works. You need the Rolling Deep triumph, which means you’ll need to slot a total of 200 runes in your Chalice. Completing this triumph will get you the Sparrow that is part of the Collections badge. This can and will take some time because when you first start putting runes in the Chalice you can only do 1 at a time. The handy thing is a lot of the triumphs I’ve mentioned, plus the ones found in the Destinations/Minor/Menagerie section of your overall Triumphs will reward you with some of the Imperials needed to upgrade your Chalice. Werner’s weekly bounties will also grant you Imperials, so remember to keep doing those. Here is a recommended list of which upgrades to focus on: Slot 1, Power & Efficiency 1, Power & Efficiency 2 (P&E 2 is very important, so beeline straight to this one.) Rune Compatibility 1 Slot 2 Rune Compatibility 2 Rune Bonus 1 & Rune Bonus 2 Rune Compatibility 3, Slot 3, Rune Bonus 3, Power & Efficiency 3 (These last 4 are all your choice, really. Whichever sounds more important to you.) The next 3 will require a full 6-person fireteam and a lot of communication. You’ll need to defeat each Menagerie boss during a run of Heroic Menagerie without dying. A couple of points to remember: Heroic Menagerie has no matchmaking so you’ll definitely need a pre-made fireteam, and you just can’t die during the boss fight. During the encounters, you’re welcome to die, just not during the final boss encounter. Bring some Titan bubbles and some Warlocks with Well of Radiance, play it safe, everything should be fine. The final 6 triumphs are connected to the Crown of Sorrow raid. You’ll need to complete a flawless run of the raid, meaning no one can die. Take things slow overall, only 2 team members need to complete the jumping puzzle part, be prepared to defeat the final boss in 2 phases, and remember to keep an eye on your Witch’s Blessing timer. You’ll need to loot the chest at the end of the jumping puzzle 5 times. This is a secret triumph until you complete it, just remember that it exists. You’ll need to complete all 4 encounters without any player receiving the Witch’s Curse debuff. This happens when your timer runs out and your screen starts to turn red, so if that ever happens, you won’t get it for that encounter. The good news is you don’t need to do this in one run of the raid, it only counts per encounter. This triumph will get you the ghost shell needed for the Collections badge. You’ll need to complete the Limited Blessings challenge, which means only 2 people can have the Witch’s Blessing buff in the first encounter. Some suggestions for this are, when running 3 teams of 2 for the left, middle, and right, that only 1 person on the left and right start with the Blessing, or that only the 2 people in the middle have it and then they swap out. Basically, you can only have 2 people with Witch’s Blessing at one time. You’ll need the Total Victory challenge, which means that during the 3rd encounter when you face off against Gahlran’s Deception you need to break the shield 5 times. Try and have 1 person with Anarchy. Here’s a link to a video I found for a quick and easy way of doing this. You’ll need the With Both Hands challenge, which means that during the final encounter, when it comes time to shoot both the boss’s hands when they glow green, only 1 person can shoot 1 hand. Make sure each team decides which one will shoot the left and which will shoot the right hand, and when you get to the boss when you shoot him in the face, decide which team will shoot hands first, then second, then third if you need a 3rd damage phase. This pretty much means that when it comes time to damage the boss, only 1 person is shooting the left hand and only 1 person is shooting the right. Then, for the second boss damage phase (if you need it), a different person shoots the left hand and another different person shoots the right. This will take some pre-encounter coordination, make sure to be clear with your teammate and your fireteam as a whole as to Hands team 1, 2, and 3 if you need 3. Here’s another video guide. And that should be it. Here’s the usual video on the entire title. As always, let me know if I've missed something.

    I understand you may know Jax and I appreciate your efforts to clear this up, but the policy is I need to get the confirmation from the prospective candidate themselves whenever there isn't 100% clear intention. It's just to ensure that no one is accidentally thrust into something they weren't actually intending to apply for.

    Have you guys played riots card game? Legends of runeterra? ive been playing since it released and its not pay to win at all like hearthstone and other games (that one steam card game) mostly you buy cosmetics like in league, and you get so many free rewards just for playing, there is ranked and normal games along with expeditions and gauntlets, also they have a new event to go with the spirit blossom event like in league, its really fun if you havnt tried it its free and you like card games def give it a shot ive had hours of fun and am still enjoying it. If you do play what is your favorite deck? im currently rocking a miss fortune swain gangplank deck if you want the code let me know 😛 also i challenge you to a D..Ddddddduel (my current deck code that got me to gold): CEBAEAIDAISQIAQGBMGBMOQDAIBAGAYEAMAQGHRIF4BQEBQEFUYQGAQCAMDAOAQCAYOCAAQBAMHC4

    This guy was humble as hell about his skills when he approached me with this generosity and he throws down a pic like that. Would I show my age too much if I made a Bob Villa reference?

    First off, let's intro the book: I'll keep my part simple. I love the Penny Arcade crew and I've loved watching the Acq Inc games being played. It's a fun take on D&D and is much lighter in tone than many other campaign books. The rules make downtime interesting and give players something to do/think about even when they are not actively playing at the table. I'll mostly be running this by the book with some with light modification to the campaign, editing of NPCs, and some more significant changes to character creation (for the better, I promise). I'm willing to allow homebrew classes/races with discussion as well. I'll be looking for a min of 4 players. Sessions will be ~3hrs with that being a pretty hard time limit. My schedule is fairly flexible, but Tues, Weds, Thurs after 4pm Eastern is best and I really don't wanna go too far past 12am which means that we can start around 9:15pm at the latest. However, my Sundays are pretty much completely open. Everything else you need to know will be in the form below. Please fill that out if you are interested in playing in this campaign. Any additional questions be posted here and I'll get to them ASAP. Description from the form: Acq Inc Interest Form

    I'm flattered to be included in your intro, and happy to see you poking around the website! If you'd like to try and get into any other community games, especially free-to-play ones, I'd recommend Destiny 2.

    It's time! Time for catch-up day. With the release of Beyond Light now pushed back to November, there's even more time to get things done before weapon sunsetting and locations get vaulted. Come by on Sunday the 26th at 4pm eastern time with your unfinished quests and tasks you've been putting off. Finished Shadowkeep but don't have Xenophage or Deathbringer? Want to at least start the Divinity quest so you can run Garden of Salvation to finally get it? Need some help finding all the Calcified Light pieces for Ruinous Effigy? Then come on by and we'll get these started for you.

    Great episode, and thanks much for the compliment Kal lol. In my defense the grandma was screaming at my character way before I attacked her so she had it coming. I also love the idea of "greatest crits!" Can't wait to listen in on the next episode.

    Hello All! After some discussion and a lot of thought, the format of this project is going to change a bit. Instead of a set time with members of the community present in a discord channel, we are instead going to treat this more like a podcast and prerecord the conversations between myself and the DM 'guests' as it were. This allows a lot more flexibility in when we can get certain people to be available for the conversation. This will also allow people who want to listen to these conversations to do so on their own time, and not be forced to set aside a specific chunk of time in order to participate. With that, we will be fielding questions from you, the community on anything about the particular upcoming topic you would like us to touch on. I will be making another post here soon where questions can be posted for the upcoming 'episode'. We may also hold a small free-form conversation after each episode has been released in case there are any questions that were missed, or didn't get asked in time and people would like more clarification on. This will be a LOT more informal, and could end up just being a bunch of us chatting about whatever. If you have any questions, suggestions, or concerns about this update, please don't hesitate to let me know!
