tl;dm - A D&D DM Podcast


Jul 5, 2018

It's been a while (again)!

The TL;DMs get some time to catch up and then do a brief breakdown on Mordenkainen's Tome of Foes, the most recent release from the DnD 5e team. They talk about what makes for a good theoretical supplement for a homebrew campaign. They also spend a little time hating on the new wealth of options for Tieflings--give a listen for their reasoning and decide for yourself if it's justified!

Then. The JUICE. Tyler and Alan ask each other questions to suss out what kind of content they think is missing from fifth edition. They talk Pokemon Masters, Alchemical Experts, and big ol' bareknuckle streetfighting Grapplers. What are the things we want to play that feel like they're unavailable (or too mechanically demanding) in Dungeons and Dragons? How can we best approximate them with the rules as we got 'em?

Another topic of discussion is HIGH LEVEL FIGHTING. Big PCs with their capstones against campaign-ending devastation monsters. What does it look like? How does it feel to play against? How about to run? How truly awful is the Sphere of Annihilation? The TL;DMs do their best to answer.
