Remley, can you tell us a little bit about yourself?
Major: English writing, now teaching, played d&d at 3.5 and came back to 5e after doing pathfinder.
What is your most memorable D&D moment?
Three eyes of grumsh wreck the module.
Do you have any moment where you failed as a DM/Player?
My first real OSR run as a DM. I didn’t telegraph well, and I made it look like the system relied too much on skill checks. People lost interest and said it was too hard.
You have a very interesting method for writing D&D adventures. Can you tell us about your method?
Writing workshops from college
Hated the “get random topics and incorporate them” exercises.
Wanted to just do my own thing.
