Dungeon Master Inspiration - Relationship Dynamics at the Table
In all of the great stories, the character's relationship with their fellowship involves dynamics. This means the relationship doesn't stay the same, but changes over time and events. It can be easy in Dungeons and Dragons to assume each character gets along with the others in the party, but what if you want to take that roleplay to another level?  This model gives you a simple four part framework to use between players and DM so that everyone can enjoy a more intense roleplay experience!

The Blood War - 9 - Meeting Professor Thaddeus Banks
In our Sunday evening Dungeons and Dragons game, the sojourners finally arrived in Avernus and it was no walk in the park. Although Avernus was once a fantastic vacation get away for mortals and immortals alike, the Blood War has ravaged it into a wasteland. Nevertheless, because of it's political connection to the Hells of the universe, Avernus witness quite a bit of foot traffic as people travel for various reasons. Imps, little floating lesser devils serve as the waiters, bellhops and butlers of the archdevils in Avernus and Professor Thaddeus Banks is one of them.

The Blood War - 7 - The Queen of Air and Darkness
If you haven't met Hey, he is a man with a tragic backstory of being taken from his mother while still a child. He called himself Hey, because of his early childhood being barked at "Hey" while operating as a serf in Runedeath Manor. The name stuck. After running away, he ended up wandering through the woods when the Lady met him. She adopted him into the land of faeries where she taught him eldritch power. Nevertheless, his simple mind did not hamper his ability to learn of the dark magic from the Lady and he never thought her of anything but a loving mother. Now we finally witness their relationship. Since Hey has been in and out of sessions, this back and forth from the Feywild makes story sense. Eventually Hey joins Felthran, Bramble and Garindan in the next episode. Hope you enjoy!
