Dungeon Master Guys, Episode 9

Welcome to our very special, extra long “exotic accents” episode.  There’s so much sexy accents (French Canadian, Florida Cuban and Naturalized Kiwi) in this show that Dave decided to go on a Cruise to try and fish one out of the Ocean.

As always, email us, leave a comment, or leave a voicemail on 305-349-3026 (make sure to say it’s for the DM Guys) and we’ll try to answer it in a future show.

In this episode:

  • Dave and Phil talk to Cam Banks, lead designer of the Leverage RPG from Margaret Weis Productions, about the Cortex Plus system and some of its elements that can be useful to GMs in general.
  • NewbieDM discusses ways to curtail D&D 4e’s combat lengths with veteran DM and writer Mike Shea.
  • We answer a question related to secret skill checks, table knowledge and the ever thorny “me-too” effect of skill checks.

  1. Sure took you long enough to get this one out there 😛 It has been sooo long. I thought maybe there wouldn’t be any more episodes. I’ll look forward to listening to this after work.

  2. Very sad that you didn’t mention master plan as a way to cut the length of encounters. Had a 30 minute encounter last week thanks to it.
