Building Introductory Adventures for New Dungeons and Dragons Players - The Anti Wedding Crashers

Welcome back to another episode of World Forge listeners! This week we decided we would talk about our approach to introducing new players to DnD and create a great starter adventure to show off some of the best things DnD has to offer. We will actually be using the adventure we created on air this week in our next session with some DnD newcomers, so we'll be sure and update you on how all that goes next week. We also talk quite a bit about some of our advice for how to help make playing and running DnD games a little more fun and accessible for newcomers. We also share some of our favorite pieces of advice that you all shared with us on twitter, this episode is chock full of pearls of wisdom! And we've actually got 3 great rec room recommendations for you all this week too: Firstly, we really just wanted to say playing DnD with new players can be a great way to grow as a player or as a DM, and we absolutely recommend you take any chance you can to do so. We all benefit from seeing new perspectives and hearing new ideas, and it's important that we help make the DnD community a friendly and welcoming place. Piper also wanted to recommend a really great new show produced by National Geographic that just started streaming on Hulu: Barkskins. It tells the story of early settlers in the Pacific Northwest, and the drama surrounding the settlement of New France. And finally, I wanted to recommend a cute little city management game I picked up on the Steam Summer Sale called Kingdoms and Castles. It's a really straightforward game without a ton of bells and whistles, but I often find strategy and management games to be great sources of inspiration for the day-to-day stuff that happens around my players when they're in town or traveling near large groups of people. As always, if you enjoyed this episode or want to share any feedback please consider reaching to us on on social media! What was your favorite opening session of a DnD campaign? Do you have any ideas about how to improve or expand upon our creations? If so we can be found on twitter @worldforgepod and via email at worldforgepod@gmail.com! We're always excited to hear from our listeners, and if you send us something really interesting we may just share it on air! If you're feeling particularly generous, please consider leaving us a review on Apple Podcasts, or your podcasting app of choice! Leaving us a review or sharing our show with a friend are the best ways to support this podcast completely for FREE, and really helps to get our show in front of new listeners! We of course want to thank you all for tuning in, and we also want to thank James Duke for our amazing theme music, he can be found at jamesduke.info! Talk to you again next week listeners!

Father Figures, Dads, and Paternal Protectors - The Good, The Dad, and the Ugly

EHello listeners and welcome back to a special Fathers Day episode of World Forge! This week we dive into the kinds of trouble fathers and father figures can get into with their children, biological or otherwise. For inspiration we look to some of our favorite good and bad dads, like Wolverine, Darth Vader, Joel from The Last of Us, and more, and we take a swing at creating our own daddy duo (well duo plus one it turns out) in the form of Geraldo the smuggler, and Abigail the street urchin. Their journey takes them from My Fair Lady to The Road to The Most Dangerous Game... it's a blast. We also had some really fun recommendations for you this week, first we wanted to recommend you check out Dream Daddy, the daddy dating sim. It's... well it's pretty much exactly what you'd expect which is just great. If you want to go and meet some dads and wine and/or dine them this is the place to go. We also wanted to wholeheartedly recommend that you check out The Last of Us Part 2 which is out ...

Billionaires and Benefactors - JP Worgen and the Fun %ers

Welcome back listeners to another episode of World Forge, this week we're talking about the rich 1% that fund and supply our adventures for us. Is capitalism the best socioeconomic option for YOUR fantasy world? Probably not! But sometimes it's nice to just have a fantastically wealthy guardian angel sitting on your shoulder! We talk about the how and why an individual may become wealthy, and what they may want to do with all their gold once they acquire it. Maybe they fund a payday loan outfit for down on their luck adventurers, or maybe they help build a new class of hero from nothing! We go over those and a few other interesting options, as well as develop our own rich old bastards, and talk about how they can help drive your stories forward. Some of our inspirations include, Tony Stark, Bruce Wayne, Ebeneezer Scrooge, Carlisle Cullen, and... Harry Potter? Don't worry we're always happy to find new ways to roast JK Rowling, but we do think our boy HP fits into this trope in an interesting way. Some of our other fun sources of inspiration for stories involving money, and those who have it, include mythological creatures like the Leprechaun, Dragons, Pixiu, and the humble Magpie! We also definitely think you should check out S-Town! It's a great podcast about a real life mystery involving a rumored hidden treasure, and the eccentric recluse who supposedly hid it away somewhere in Woodstock, Alabama. As always, if you enjoyed this episode or want to share any feedback please consider reaching to us on on social media! We can be found on twitter @worldforgepod. We're also available via email at worldforgepod@gmail.com.

Time Travelers and Time Machines - Clint Brownstone and the Dreamwalkers

EWelcome back listeners to another episode of World Forge, this week we're talking about time travel! What happens when you introduce this classically world breaking element to your stories? Is there a way to do it without ruining everything that came before? Is there a "soft" version of time travel, and what kind of rules are needed to make this work? We cover all that as well as some of our favorite time travel stories and tropes. We also get serious for just a brief minute and talk about some of the real world stuff that's going on around us lately. We fully intend for this show to be a place for our listeners to escape from the sometimes terrible and scary things going on in the real world, but we also want to acknowledge and thank all of you who have reached out to us to check in and offer your support in these strange times. We're proud Minneapolis natives and have been doing our best to engage in the ongoing protests and action in a responsible way, we are 100% safe but still want to give those of you who wish to support us and our city a way to do so as well. So if you are committed to helping out in these strange times, we encourage you to go check out www.welovelakestreet.com and make a donation to the Lake Street Council to help rebuild the parts of our city most affected by rioting and looting. 100% of proceeds go to the businesses and individuals who have been damaged over the last few weeks.

The World Forge 50th Episode Crossover Special - The Hags are Back in Town with Ben and Joe from We Speak Common!

EWe did it listeners! We made it to episode 50! This is a huge milestone for us and we are so appreciative of all the support you've shown us since we started this little podcast. We thought a fun way to celebrate 50 episodes would be to revisit some of our and your favorite creations from the last year or so, and see what happens when we stick them all in a blender together! We also brought back some of our favorite guests, Ben and Joe from We Speak Common, to help us atone for our past sins. So if you were wondering what the little girl who's 99% hag had gotten up to, or what would happen when she meets the cowboy who's afraid of having his photo taken, this is the episode for you! This is an extra long one (our longest episode yet in fact) so buckle up! We also get into what our favorite crossovers are from other forms of media. We spend entirely too much time talking about the Marvel universe and it's virtues, Kingdom Hearts and it's sins, and a whole bunch of other examples of successful and unsuccessful attempts at crossovers! If you want to check out Ben and Joe's podcast (which we'll be appearing on next week!) you can find them on all major podcast platforms as We Speak Common, or on twitter @wespeakcommon! As always, if you enjoyed this episode or want to share any feedback please consider reaching to us on on social media! We can be found on twitter @worldforgepod.

EThis week on World Forge we're joined by two very special guests, Jarred and Kevin from the wonderful Monsters and Multiclass podcast!

We definitely recommend you go and check out their show, as well as our other rec room recommendation this week: Cameron Day of Daylight Publications!

Is capitalism the best socioeconomic option for YOUR fantasy world? Probably not! But sometimes it's nice to just have a fantastically wealthy guardian angel sitting on your shoulder! We talk about the how and why an individual may become wealthy, and what they may want to do with all their gold once they acquire it. Maybe they fund a payday loan outfit for down on their luck adventurers, or maybe they help build a new class of hero from nothing! We go over those and a few other interesting options, as well as develop our own rich old bastards, and talk about how they can help drive your stories forward. Some of our inspirations include, Tony Stark, Bruce Wayne, Ebeneezer Scrooge, Carlisle Cullen, and... Harry Potter? Don't worry we're always happy to find new ways to roast JK Rowling, but we do think our boy HP fits into this trope in an interesting way.

The World Forge 50th Episode Crossover Special - The Hags are Back in Town with Ben and Joe from We Speak Common!

EWe did it listeners! We made it to episode 50! This is a huge milestone for us and we are so appreciative of all the support you've shown us since we started this little podcast. We thought a fun way to celebrate 50 episodes would be to revisit some of our and your favorite creations from the last year or so, and see what happens when we stick them all in a blender together! We also brought back some of our favorite guests, Ben and Joe from We Speak Common, to help us atone for our past sins. So if you were wondering what the little girl who's 99% hag had gotten up to, or what would happen when she meets the cowboy who's afraid of having his photo taken, this is the episode for you! This is an extra long one (our longest episode yet in fact) so buckle up! We also get into what our favorite crossovers are from other forms of media. We spend entirely too much time talking about the Marvel universe and it's virtues, Kingdom Hearts and it's sins, and a whole bunch of other examples of successful and unsuccessful attempts at crossovers! If you want to check out Ben and Joe's podcast (which we'll be appearing on next week!) you can find them on all major podcast platforms as We Speak Common, or on twitter @wespeakcommon! As always, if you enjoyed this episode or want to share any feedback please consider reaching to us on on social media! We can be found on twitter @worldforgepod.

Matriarchs and Leading Ladies - The Reign of the Iron Witch aka Happy Mothers Day!

EThis is an episode for all the moms out there listening! Also everyone else... ok so it's for everyone really but mostly it's for moms! This week we take a look at some inspiring leading ladies from reality and fiction, and try to come up with our own fantasy matriarchs! We cover a lot of cool examples and land on a badass coal momma that wants nothing more than to create a safe life for her daughter, and a spitfire airship captain out for revenge with a faithful squad of soldiers in tow! We also had some really fun recommendations for you this week! Above all we hope you gave your mom a call on mothers day, but besides that we recommend you go and listen to The Hazards of Love by the Decemberists! It's an amazing indie rock opera about a baby rescued by a vengeful forest queen, and her struggle to hide him away from the human world. We also want to thank @great_lawful on twitter this week for giving us a really kind shoutout. Please go check them out if you're looking for more fun ...

Multiclass Madness - Calamity Jane Goodall with Jarred and Kevin from Monsters and Multiclass

EThis week on World Forge we're joined by two very special guests, Jarred and Kevin from the wonderful Monsters and Multiclass podcast! Monsters and Multiclass is a show about exploring weird multiclass options, so we decided it would be fun to build a party based on some of the wild and wacky combinations they've explored in episodes past! Monsters and Multiclass can be found on twitter @monsters_multi and on all major podcasting platforms. We definitely recommend you go and check out their show, as well as our other rec room recommendation this week: Cameron Day of Daylight Publications! We had the opportunity to look at The Garradrugh, a really interesting supplement published by Cam in an episode we released a few weeks ago, but it seemed fitting to talk about it again given the unique party composition we were able to explore today. The Garradrugh can be found here on drivethrurpg! As always, if you enjoyed this episode or want to share any feedback please consider reaching to us on on social media! We can be found on twitter @worldforgepod. We're also available via email at worldforgepod@gmail.com. We love to hear about all the ways you use and improve upon our ideas, and if you show us something really interesting we may just share it on air!
