Dungeons and Dubliners Episode 5: Not Dead Yet!

Brian and Barra are back after a long rest having recovered from a near fatal encounter with a technical glitch.  With a slight change of format the boys bring their usual mix of D&D of news and opinion, including forthcoming D&D releases, a big DDAL Dublin Announcement, High Level Play analysis, and a rather high brow discussion of Alignment in 5e.  Enjoy!

Dungeons and Dubliners Episode 4 – The Great Ravnica Debate

In our campaign recap we discuss the slow descent into madness of Brian's character and by the end of the episode we are left to wonder if this indeed a cry for help from Brian himself as the accumulated years with no new Greyhawk product begin to weigh on him.  We discuss how to deal with in character conflict, all the latest releases and recap the Adventurers League news.

Enjoy!

Dungeons and Dubliners Episode 3 – Tea, Biscuits and the Tyranny of Point Buy (?)

In this episode we ruminate on what an exciting time it is to be a nerd as we go through all the exciting Adventurer's League and D&D news.  Some of us, then, rail against the Tyranny of point buy stat generation as we discuss the process of character creation.  Finally we discuss the merits or otherwise of a Session Zero in a time scarce world.  Enjoy!

Welcome to the first episode of the podcast!  

In this episode we establish our nerd credentials and bask in the rise to domination of the Nerds over the Jocks.  We give a run down on our home campaign, chat about upcoming and recent releases and Brian and Floody get carried away slightly at the scale of the Dublin Adventurers League.  We then realise we are running out of time and quickly review a Dmsguild product.  Finally we sign off and go straight to order recording equipment to ensure a much better sound quality for the next episode!
