RPG Breakfast Club Ep. 17

An episode of RPG Breakfast Club

By Pexx
These are live recordings from the Tavern Discord. Folks in the RPG industry come in and have discussions, very much in the style of a panel at a convention. The hosts change every week and talk about things ranging from art, minis, cartography, terrain, vtts, game theory, DMing & Player advice, and anything else that strikes their fancy. Toward the end of the show, we open the show up to audience members for questions. If you would like to be on the show as an audience member or a host please head on over to the Tavern Discord discord.gg/GaXW2TX and message Pexx. RSS Feed: https://anc
