Episode 103 |

Announcements

A big congrats and good luck to our friends at Roll20 who are taking the plunge and making Roll20 their full-time gig! Now, on with the show!

Topics 

Tyranny of Dragons

In another article that is rather scant on details, WotC has unveiled the big multi-platform D&D event going along with 5e’s release called Tyranny of Dragons. Looks like it includes Tiamat and a bunch more to come. Does this tie in with The Sundering? We discuss!

Timewatch! The Time Travel RPG

A Kickstarter for Kevin Culp’s new game, TimeWatch, is going strong and we think you should check it out. To be published by Pelgrane Press, the game promises to cover every time-travelling-trope you can possibly think of. Be sure to check it out, you can even chip in just a buck to check out the playtest materials already.

Playing To The Averages

Micah and I discuss the “playing to the averages” mentality discussed in a previous show, we got off on the wrong foot and came across overly negative. We’d like to clear the air a bit and provide some positive examples of playing to the averages.

Tip

Put a link from your Google + profile (in the list of links in your profile data) to your OP campaign homepage. AND link your OP account to Google (from your OP edit profile page) We embed Google authorship data in the campaigns and it will make your G+ avatar image show up next to your campaign pages in Google search results.

Question

@EldritchFire asks: How do you get players to accept the facts of a setting that restrict or deny actions that they are used to?
