Monday Update Video (08/27) – Patreon Exclusive!

When I launched my Patreon page last Friday my goal was not to gate any of my current content behind a paywall. Instead I wanted to offer some nice extra perks for my awesome patrons, including credit acknowledgement on my videos, personal shout-outs, access to my DM Google Docs for D&D, and an exclusive weekly video every Monday.

These Monday Update videos will be recorded and uploaded every Monday morning. It’s a shorter, more personal vlog-style video in which I’ll talk about what I’m working on that week, what my plans are for video and written content, as well as what board games and video games I’m playing.

The first video just went up today. To gain access to these personal videos, and help support more video content on my channel, I encourage you to check out my Patreon.

Thank you!

Patreon is live, Tomb of Annihilation begins tonight!

My Patreon page is live! This page will act as a community hub for both our ongoing live play D&D campaign as well as my many video review series on board games and tabletop RPGs.

There you’ll find discussions, polls, anecdotes, and updates. My goal is to never go more than two days without an update post or video!

Every week on Monday (starting Aug. 26) I’ll upload a video for Silver and higher-level patrons discussing what I’m working on.

Tonight will kick off our new D&D 5e campaign, Tomb of Annihilation! This will be our Session 0 where we introduce and create all of our player characters and prepare for Session 1 next week. Start times remain the same: Fridays at 7pm Pacific/10pm Eastern, and my goal is to start the stream on time every week!

Next Thursday will kick off my new behind-the-scenes live series, Crafting Annihilation, which will start around 9am pacific/12pm eastern and run for 30-60 minutes.

Patreon Incoming + New Show Announcement

With our transition to a new campaign next week, I’m using this opportunity to announce another weekly D&D show: Crafting Annihilation! This will be a live streamed behind-the-scenes series where I go through my prep work for that week’s session of Tomb of Annihilation.

Next week is our Session 0 where we’ll introduce and create our new player characters. After that the normal routine will be Crafting Annihilation on Thursday mornings (tentatively) and Tomb of Annihilation on our usual Friday evenings.

I’ll also be launching a Patreon next week to help support all the extra video content I produce on my YouTube channel (and here on my website), including DMs Guild Reviews, Roll20 Reviews, RogueWatson Reviews (board games), and the new Crafting Annihilation series.

With your patronage I can increase my output of videos with a more consistent release schedule (such as a DMs Guild Review every Tuesday).

Leave comments here or on YouTube for suggestions on the kind of reward tiers or special perks you want to see on the Patreon page.

Tabletop Review: Warlock #1 + Warlock Lair 1

A press copy of Warlock #1 and Warlock Lair 1 was provided for the purposes of this review.

WarlockKobold Press recently launched a Patreon campaign for a bi-monthly RPG sourcebooklet called Warlock. Warlock uses the 5E SRD to produce material that’s compatible with Dungeons & Dragons Fifth Edition. In may ways Warlock represents Kobold Press’ return to their roots of Kobold Quarterly.

Warlock specifically dives into the lore, characters, and locations of Midgard, Kobold Press’ fantasy world and RPG campaign setting. Warlock is designed as a mini-sourcebook, though any DM could be properly inspired from the material presented here.

The first issue is small, both physically and in length, clocking in at 20 pages. It’s printed on thick card stock with black and white art. Its size belies the deep material inside, including a detailed overview of the evil land of Beldestan, a greenhouse of mutated plant life that would make Poison Ivy proud, and rules for those who venture too close to the Void.

Warlock #1 provides four separate articles, each written and designed by a different person (or collaboration) from Kobold Press’ impressive stable of RPG writers and designers. It also includes several fantastic pieces of original artwork by Gabriel Cassata, Pedro Potier, and Karl Waller. Continue reading “Tabletop Review: Warlock #1 + Warlock Lair 1”
