      @Named_James i think they're just sad the series had to end and that there was a serious moment towards the end. And to Jocat this video has probably saved so many gms from trying to force their LOTR epic onto their players by showing the most important goal of any Tabletop Rpg. *Salutes in sword and shield* Thank you very much.

    I agree wholeheartedly with the message, but I do think it deserves one caveat: a DM is a player, too, and a DM should always discuss what kind of roleplaying they want in their fantasy with the other players. That's one way to avoid so many conflicting agendas.

    Bit of advice for Joe Cat, maybe shrink your group from 30 players to 15? I would even recommend a comfortable 4 or 5

  56. MrMastaofDesasta
    2 أيام قبل

    That's why you have a Session 0 where you talk about whether or not you want a story focused campaign or a "free" campaign. If I go to the trouble of weaving an intricate story, I expect from my players that they actually pick up on my plothooks. But if they say from the beginning that they just want to fuck around, I just make a rudimentary story and focus on preparing many side activities.

    I don't usually comment on this account but considering how fucking good this video is I shall make an exception. I've been trying to get into D&D but I'm having a hard time figuring things out even after looking through the Player Guide Handbook. However, after watching your video summary I can actually understand what most things mean now and I'm very grateful that I found this video. The comedy and sarcastic tone definitely helped to keep my attention and gave a slightly broader sense on how a lot of things work. So good work!!
