Invisible Stalkers and World Design

In this episode, episode 10, we talk about invisible stalkers and invisibility in general for far too long before we get to the world design part. Episode 9 will be re-uploaded with audio at a later date. My apologies.

We begin starting episodes by rolling monsters in the Monster Manual and come up with encounters based on those monsters. In this episode, we talk about Treants, Owlbears, and Naga. After that, we talk some about Nevre: Yeodiax, Wild Gods, and other things.

This episode picks up from the recording of the last episode. We talk mostly about D&D 5e warlocks and warlock adjacent things. Then we get into spells and ranges and the episode ended up being shorter because, in retrospect, it’s not that interesting to listen to.

In this episode Michael and I (Josh) talk for a while about our session of Microscope, then talk a little about World of Warcraft and a few other MMO’s and RPG’s. We no longer play any of the MMO’s and RPG’s, but we have played them in the past.

SoS Podcast Episode 4: Dungeons and Dhampir

Intro voice: Michael Connelly

In this episode, we talk about dungeons because I have been working on one for South Reaches. As is the nature of talking about dungeons we talked about design, monsters, loot, and mechanics. We also come up with an interesting theory about the symbiotic relationship between the dungeon and its dragon (or other powerful creature). Of course the topic then derails and we start talking about Dhampir and Vampires and Werewolves.
