Today we answer a couple listener questions!
1) Do you have general advice about which class to take first when multiclassing? I was thinking about Bard/Warlock when I get to create a character. But I don’t know the order in which to take the levels.
2) I’ve been trying to motivate my group of entirely new players to play more, but people are struggling to get engaged. Everyone but the rogue feels that combat is banal in fights (the wizard doesn’t know what they can do at them moment). The fighters just swing their weapons every round. How can I, as a player, help spice up combat for everyone? Or is there some advice you could give that I can share with the DM?
Keep your combat fresh! Don’t just make it an arms race of numbers. Surprise the players. Steve helps a friend with some tips on how to run interesting combat and tells tales from our own campaigns. Matt also has the creepiest intro voice…
Thanks to all our listeners for their feedback on our first Challenge Ratings podcast! Turns out we were wrong to declare the system unusable… or at least absent. This episode we explore how usable it actually is.
This episode we tackle a listener question! It’s a long one (over 1 hour!) so settle in. We discuss best race and background combo’s for a variety of builds. Be sure to send us any D&D questions/builds or anything you’d like us to discuss! We will cover more listener comments/questions in upcoming podcasts.
Today we don’t talk about D&D!? What? You say?! It’s true. We are talking about a new favorite game of ours, Darkest Dungeon, a roguelike RPG out now on Steam early access. This game will mess you up. Heroes die all the time so get attached at your own peril. Sometimes they break and need to spend time praying or drinking to forget the horrors they have seen. Listen to hear us discuss many of the game’s mechanics as well as a few party builds we’ve come to rely on. Enjoy!

We continue to explore the “ideal” party. Four Druids… No but seriously. How about the classic, Fighter, Wizard, Cleric, Rogue? Bard, Warlock, Druid, anything? And other winning combos.
All about how to calculate CR’s for enemies with PC classes… Oh wait you can’t, because, uhh, potato? If you try you will find yourself sucked into some evil infinite circular logic loop of the DMG. Try it, we dare you! (Oh and if you do figure it out please tell us! Steve hasn’t been the same since.)
