With Pax having taken place this week there are plenty of topics for the Grumpy Dungeon Masters. Naturally they have a silly good time talking about D&D 5.5, Vecna and his eye, and also some more VTT news.
We had a recording error around 4:45. Sorry about the issues. Cr’aig’s fault. GDM Jay tells a tale of his Pathfinder 2E finale and finds a new stupid spell. GDM Christopher talks about knowing a guy and both the GDM guys talk about the upcoming holiday one shots.
The guys spend some time chatting about D&D’s future with the massive changes just around the corner. Also is the Jack Vance magic system dead and GDM Christopher changes his mind.
There is a Dungeons and Dragons TV channel. That’s right, but nobody can find it locked away in the depths of Amazon Prime. The guys will help you find it and tell you what is playing. Also hot takes on needing more DM’s and Dark Sun 2nd edition.
It’s a week of many topics. Jack Vance Sci-Fantasy, Deck of Many Things, Hasbro sales numbers, and the Crooked Moon Kickstarter cracking 4 Million. Been a busy week for the guys.
Planescape has finally been released for 5th edition so the guys have their friend Kristian back on the podcast to go through the books with them. What changed from 2nd edition, what’s good, what’s bad, and all the in between.
The guys are joined by Dungeon Lord Jay again and chat about the multiverse in D&D and whether other properties would be licensed by WotC to expand into new settings. Who doesn’t want Drizzt Do’urden vs Iron Man or Elminster battling Doctor Strange? I can see the nerd fights already.
Planescape has hit the shelves and the guys are having fun talking about all the fun things inside. Especially the Ancient Time Dragon. GDM Christoper tells a story of him thinking Drow and Ettercaps like each other and GDM Jay has found a new initiative system he want’s to try.
The guys are joined by David Schirduan, creator of Technicalgrimoire.com and co-creator of Overpowered, a single player game where you play through a module and earn points along the way. He’s also the publisher of the recently released book Bridgetown, an incredible tabletop setting. Check it out!
GDM Christopher is up in arms about the state of Adventurer’s League. He also likes handing out strange gifts to his players. Be careful what you wish for. GDM Jay talks about the battle between Netflix and Evil Genius Games and also talks some about running a game without combat.
