Let's Get Started...Again: D&D Race Analysis

Updated: Jan 4, 2020

Listen Now:

We discuss race stats and features and what classes get the most bang for the buck.

We have been doing the show for over two years, and some how, we have missed covering the races in the book. So we decided to make a new episode 0. One that showcases the show's newest format as well as the improvements we've made over the years. 

Follow us on https://www.twitch.tv/critacademy and join us live on Sundays at 7pm est.

Segment 2: Crit Nation Feedback: Let’s talk about Blank! (Answer questions!)

Bret Thompson

Leveling characters based on the player’s ability to manage their character sheet. The Gary said “never let a player level up, if they don’t understand their character sheet.” Obviously all the players at the table will get a handle on their sheet at different times. When the whole team has it they level up. Designing encounters to make all the players use all their shit...if players wonder why its taking so long, give inspiration/reflavor abilities ect.
