Intro to DnD (Crunch of the Dice)

Kylee takes over and gives a DnD 101 class. Listeners who don’t have a ton of experience with the game, we hope this makes When Crit Happens more accessible to you! 

And for more experienced players, there are some juicy stories and GM tips in here for you, too.

We go through the most common things that come up when we're playing, and some of the basic principles of the game--which we hope will make it easier for you to follow the story when you're listening to the Rokhatima Campaign!

In the process, Torsten and Kylee get drawn into a couple tangents, all in the service of demystifying gaming jargon.

Plus, we've got some questions from listeners about their most burning DnD questions!
