159 – How to Improvise Traps and Be Productive

Daniel gives a preview of a patron-only 4-in-1 page dungeon that we’ll be releasing soon, describing its method for making traps beforehand or at runtime.

And, speaking of traps, there’s DM perfectionism. You want everything in your setting to be up to your standards; so you end up producing less than you need. This induces a nasty cycle. Daniel says how he’s broken it with the help of old school fundamentalism.

156 – Mothership – Finale of Dead Planet

We finish our run of our first proper sci-fi game, Mothership. Spoilers for the official module Dead Planet follow. Listen as it is revealed that Daniel still doesn’t know how space works and knows one and only one metric system equivalence. Does the party escape the dead planet or spectacularly TPK? Do we get the rules half right? Just click, nay, SMASH that play button and find out, dear listener.

Note that we did Stress totally wrong. The default Stress gained is 1, not 1d10. Not sure where Daniel got that …
