Vancian Magic in my D&D - what is it? Why don't I like it?
Hey everyone! In this episode we discuss Vancian Magic which is the general term used to describe magic used in Dungeons and Dragons. It is inspired by the Dying Earth series written by Jack Vance. I brought on Jason Connerly to help me discuss this because he claims to be an expert at D&D and tells me all the time how I should be playing the game. Enjoy!

In this episode I discuss Attributes and how I prefer some of the newer systems of play such as roll under or where your attribute is your bonus. This is a departure from classic Dungeons and Dragons and other more old school style system currently being utilized by the TTRPG community. Not saying the old school system is wrong (heck I grew up with it and still enjoy playing it) and just simply stating my own personnel design preferences. Enjoy!
