As far as character creation goes, we’ve talked about where characters come from and what their base forms look like. Now we will be looking more in depth at what separates a real character from a base form of one. We will look into making characters real. What motivates a character? What are their quirks? What makes them tick? Let’s take a deeper look and find the answers for your character. [Read more…]
Dungeons and Dragons is a game that everyone should play at least once. However, when I try to bring more people into the world of roleplaying I’m often met with a lot of questions and concerns. Some of which you may have yourself. So today I am here to assuage your concerns and answer the biggest question on potential players’ minds: Why should you play Dungeons and Dragons? [Read more…]
Over the recent years, Dungeons and Dragons has made its way back to the forefront of the cultural consciousness. Thanks to shows like Stranger Things, as well as celebrities like Matthew Lillard and Joe Mangianello, this game has become more popular than ever. The game has inspired many shows dedicated to it. One of them, Critical Role, even turned their story into an animated show, which turned out to be the highest television kickstarter ever! Dungeons and Dragons has started this momentum into a new renaissance of gaming with its fifth edition, which is going strong on its fifth year. The best time to start playing is now! That’s why you’re here; to begin your adventure as a story teller. Welcome! Now the big question comes: Where do you start? [Read more…]
It’s official: I have moved! Well, physically at least. I’ll remain here online, bringing the content! With this new move comes a new mind set, so there will be a few changes around here.
The first change is for posts here. I’ll be putting a post up each and every Thursday. The day is subject to change, but even if it does the posts will be up on a weekly basis.
And that’s just the beginning of the new content. I’m still working out the details, but I plan on making my debut on Youtube very soon! These videos will start out much like posts here, focusing on taking your game to the next level. After a while, the channel will branch out from there into stuff like actual plays and other fun videos.
The other platform I’m diving into is Twitch. I’m already established on there (twitch.tv/bravothebard) and I intend on streaming more D&D content there. Game prep, actual plays, D&D themed video games, and Q&A sessions. There’s no real set schedule for these streams, but I will be letting you know when I will stream through Twitter and Instagram.
Those are the changes for the near future! I hope to continue to improve in all aspects and pass that improvement to you all. Together we will improve our games of Dungeons and Dragons, and bring many more players to the game. Thank you for taking this journey with me; it should be a fun one!
