It’s a perfectly normal episode, without guests or con recaps or anything – what even is this? It’s an episode about getting your feet wet as a GM, that’s what! After our usual banter, including Jenny’s sudden appearance in Grant’s D&D game, we answer a question from Patreon supporter Shawn, who asks us about our perfect gaming room. Then we get into our main topic with a variety of suggestions for people considering running their own game for the first time.
