23: You Are Not In A Tavern

March 1, 2015

This week we focus on how to successfully start a campaign.  It is fun and all to start in a tavern, but at times that start can become...well...stale like the left over bread in the cellar. As much fun as over sized mutated rats can be or the town hobo who babbles about tales of ages past, consider starting your campaign a different way this time around. Listen closely to the ideas and consider implementing some of your own.  If you do so let us know! We would love to hear them.

December 24, 2014

This week we are proud to present our very first DMB Christmas episode.  We have a lot jam packed into this episode so hunker down, grab your egg nog and cookies and prepare to have your ears pleased with this special episode of the Dungeon Master's Block.  Here is what you are in for:

 
Story Time: This week we extended our episode's story time to be well...pretty much the whole episode.  We share our favorite stories over our years of playing DnD.  We laugh, reminisce, and pretty sure someone might even cry...not really but close when we talk about Daima.  
 
Twitter Jokes:  We share the best answers to the twitter jokes that we have posted over the past month.  Special shout outs to those of you that won.  These are classic.
 
MailBag of Holding:  As a gift from us to you we include a new segment to our show.  The Mail Bag of Holding makes its DMB premier with a fitting christmas story that was submitted by DM Mainprize.  Thanks for the email.
 
DMB Christmas Song:  We slaved over making this song, as did our NPC Band, the best it could possibly be for all of you.  We hope you enjoy the song at the end of the episode.  Who knows if it goes over well we may try our hand at it again next year.
