Raincast redux (spoof/silly) | Content Warning: coronavirus mentioned  An attempt at some lighthearted tomfoolery where I play with Spencer's (Free Thrall; Keep off the Borderlands podcast) episode The Raincast (A Malodorous Borderlands Joint), where TJ Drennan rings in with a series of questions for Spencer.

12 - Audio Dungeon | not that one
Had this idea for a crowd-sourced audio dungeon. The idea bring people leave a message which are 1 minute or shorter detailing a room, location, corridor, fresco etc. In a fantasy dungeon. It might be helpful to think of such message as audible “box text”. I might keep this as a living document, updating it as messages come in. Sending a message means that you accept that the content is Creative Commons.

8 - Consequences in RPGs; no I mean the game
You must remember the parlour game “Consequences”. Well I thought it might be fun to use this format as a ‘Session 0’ PC background builder. Bit like a random table but where people are the dice. See https://www.drivethrurpg.com/product/289006/Session-Zero--ConsequencesStyle-Background-Builder

1 - 1e Surprise rules as a combat system
I listen to ChgWiz’s (Michael Shorten’s) The Dungeon Master’s Handbook podcast about 1e ‘surprise’ and wondered if it could be converted into a simple combat system or used for anything else ... I also have a blog: https://goblinshenchman.wordpress.com
