It's been a while between recordings, and the TL;DMs have some campaign recaps to get to. In particular, they talk about arc and session structure, and mechanical benefits of visual aids for table engagement.
Then, Tyler posits some opportunities for NPC-themed story arcs since his table has several characters that they're deeply invested in.
There are, OF COURSE, some tangents. The pair talk about their go-to DnD characters/classes and what they enjoy most about those archetypes.
But the main focus of Episode 31 is creating powerful moments across all levels. Cinematic moments of play that become tense or heroic or "oh shit" moments at the table. The kinds that make memories that last and that have the players leaving the table want to retell those stories later on.
