Remember the last D&D combat post? This week, we’re expanding on those themes some more to talk about BOSS BATTLES! Here are a few things I use to augment the Heroes of Iyastera baddies and help my players feel like the epic heroes they are!
Time for another Worldbuiling post!! This time, we’ll explore the theme of culture a bit more. We’ve already explored the things that will impact the evolution of different cultures and the way culture and language are interconnected…now we’ll look at different ways you can show customs and practices through the behaviour of your characters!
Being a GM is a big job: you need to be familiar with the rules (or at least know where to find them in the reference books), create engaging challenges for your players to solve, and weave it all together in an interesting story that will capture the imagination. If you’re lucky enough to be running an on-going campaign, it can definitely feel like the work is never-ending. It’s easy to fall into rabbit hole after rabbit hole of worldbuilding, campaign prep, and NPC creation, but after a while you start to learn techniques that make it a bit easier on your time and mental energy stores!
