Episode 15: Session Building

This is the long awaited show illustrating Nicky and I’s process in creating a first session for an adventuring party. There are as many ways of creating an adventure as there are GMs, and this is just the two of us riffing off one another. We wander a bit into campaign creation as well, although we try to stick to a good first adventure.

Thank you so much everyone who sent us characters! You’re all our BFFs!

If we picked your character for the episode, why don’t you let us know if we did them justice on our Forums, Facebook page, or tweet us!

Of course, there’s always email if you wish to be more circumspect.
