Level-Up Your Playing with Tips from Geek & Sundry

Having an awesome and powerful tabletop RPG character is great, but the character is only as good as the person playing them.  It’s fairly easy to level up your D&D or Pathfinder character; you pick a new spell, or a new feat, maybe a stat increase, and then it’s back to gaming, but how do you level up as a player?  James Haeck over at Geek & Sundry came up with some excellent tips for being a better player, both at the table and in life.  Here’s a few of James’ suggestions on improving your game:

BEFORE THE GAME

  1. Be a good person.Wheaton’s Law: “Don’t be a dick.” You’re all friends here, and you should treat them that way. Don’t forget that the DM is your friend, too; they aren’t out to get you, even if it might seem like it sometimes. Is the roleplaying getting too heated and it looks like people are getting angry in Real Life? Take a step back and assess: are we still having fun?
  2. Make friends with your gaming buddies. Gamers in school don’t have to worry about this one as much; odds are your gaming group is already made up of close friends. But if you’re not, try and put in the effort to get to know your party members.
  3. Make your DM’s life easier. A good DM is more precious than gold. If you don’t know why, ask your DM how much they do to prep for the campaign, schedule game nights, get snacks… the list goes on. How can you give back? Look for little things you can do for the DM, things like showing up right on time, bringing snacks of your own (or offering to pay them back for food), and even taking over little tasks during the game, like tracking initiative. If you’re an artistic person, you might even want to make drawings, short stories, or songs about your campaign. Everyone (everyone!) loves fan art.

These are just a few of Haeck’s tips, all of which can help take your game, and yourself, to the next level.  Check out the full article over at Geek & Sundry for the rest.

S3E2 – The Lost Mines of Phandelver Pt 2: Best Get ta Gumpin’

2GAGAAG_PHB2048When we were last with our heroes, they were about to be attacked by unknown assailants, and we pick up there with the first combat of the new season.  It’s a bit of the old “Theater of the Mind,” so hopefully a little more accessible to listeners.  Also, Aaron invents a catchphrase.

S3E1 – The Lost Mines of Phandelver Pt 1: A Dead Horse Moves Ten Feet Closer To You

2GAGAAG_PHB2048We’re back!  Season 3 is here, and we’re playing a new edition of D&D!  Change is hard, but I think we’re making it through without too much trouble.  For this season, we’re playing “The Lost Mines of Phandelver” a boxed adventure available as part of the D&D 5th Edition Starter Set.  The starter set comes with everything you need to play D&D, and I think the adventure that comes with it is a good intro to the new system.

We also added a new member of the podcast family, Derek Krentz, who is an old friend of Aaron’s. I look forward to torturing him as much as I’ve tortured all the rest of the crew!

With the new setting and new season, we have all new characters!  They are:

  • Aaron Buell as Spiznorp, the Halfling Rogue
  • Eric Helmken as Beryl, Halfling Bard
  • Sammy Kammy as Sodia Peach, Dragonborn Barbarian
  • And Introducing Derek Krentz as Ranlay Shortbottom, Gnome Druid

There’s lots of exciting stuff this season, and we’re looking forward to the new system, and a whole new custom campaign, “The Devil’s Due” on the horizon for season 4.
