Monster Design
01:40:20

This week each of us brought a custom monster to the table. Built using the instructions in the Dungeon Masters Guide. We walk through our build process, design decisions and flavor of our new babies. All the while the other two savagely rip them apart like a couple of ravenous hyena's over a dead carcass.

Sir Alkian's Guide to Surviving the Apocalypse
01:51:41

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

This we special guest Anne Gregersen joins us to talk about her best selling Dmsguild DnD supplement. 

Sir Alkian's Guide to Surviving the Apocalypse is a guidebook for those who are looking to run apocalyptic scenarios in their 5e D&D games, ranging from an immediate danger that threatens the very structure of the world, to cases where the apocalypse struck a long time ago and people have lived in its wake for decades or centuries. 

The guide can be used to shape worlds touched by any kind of calamity, not just those of an apocalyptic nature. If a realm is ravaged by the powers of a cruel god or if society has fallen victim to a horrific disease, this book can serve as a guide on how an area reponds to such forces.

50 Shades of Rage
01:23:21

The word barbarians brings to mind certain images. Snowbound brutes with fur cloaks and broad swords, their long hair whipping in the wind as they howl savage battle cries, undeterred by the exhaustion and pain that would plague mortal men. Hulking tribesmen on the endless tundra, their spears and hands bloody from the long day's hunt for game and enemies alike. Or, if you're a cultured sort of gamer geek, you might picture some of the old pulp magazine covers that prominently featured Conan, Kull, and the other barbarians created by Robert E. Howard and his ilk.

This week we delve into 50 Shades of Rage: Flavoring the Barbarian's Signature Power an amazing article from Neal Litherland on the many ways you can give your barbarians rage a unique feel and experience, without changing the mechanic.

100 Ways to Excuse a Character Absence
01:12:06

This week we cover the must have Dungeons and Dragons supplement from Alex Clippinger "100 Ways to Excuse a Character Absence" a must have DMsguild supplement.

"I'm so sorry, I can't make it this week."

We've been there. We've all been there. The dreaded session drop-out.

Someone can't make it. But your other players are ready to continue.

How do you explain why one of their companions is suddenly gone?

This is a silly little supplement with two d4 tables per class, giving random reasons why that character suddenly isn't here right now.

The excuses are always vague and strange enough to account for why an adventurer might go missing for minutes or hours at a time.

In Go for the Eyes, you'll find ways to throw curveballs at players who thought they knew monster stat blocks by heart.

Class Analysis: GUN Mage
01:06:18

This week we discuss and break down our sorcerous origin the GUN Mage. A D&D character option on the DMsguild.

While many sorcerers find themselves able to naturally tap into the well of magic inside of them, some are not so lucky. Their search for a way to tap into this power has lead them into using artificially enhanced arcane focuses that pull the power inside within their reach. These special focuses are known as Genetic Unconventional Neo-focus, or G.U.N for short.

Ancestral Weapons

This week we discuss Ancestral Weapons by Dungeon Rollers. A Dungeons and Dragons 5e supplement with rules for creating powerful heirloom weapons that evolve and grow with your players.

A noble blade wielded in the blood wars, an axe used to protect the great city of Mirabar from orc invasions, or a powerful staff passed down through the eons. Ancestral weapons, heirlooms, are iconic within roleplaying. These weapons embody a character’s family, story, and their history. These weapons are as important to many characters as their race, class, or background, to these people the opportunity to carry these items in their adventures is the true reward.

D&D: Fortresses, Temples, and Strongholds
01:32:58

This week we discuss player made structures with Fortress, Temples, and Strongholds. A guide to player made structures by Walrock Homebrew

The world is a wild and scary place, full of monsters, malevolence, and myriad evils to be expunged.

Wouldn't it be wonderful to have a place to unwind? A place to hang your hat, build and customize, and to call your home?

Wouldn't it be nice to leave your mark in the world? To build a permanent edifice as a testament to the ages, a bulwark of safety against the ravages of time?

Would you build a mighty temple to your gods, proclaiming your faith far and wide? A dreary dungeon complete with a grotto of poisonous herbs and holding cells for those that would oppose you? Or a quiet cottage in the forest, an idyllic and relaxing retreat holding a simple magical study?

Episode 105: Class Analysis: Matt Mercer's Gunslinger
01:37:57
This episode we finish our class analysis of Matt Mercer's Gunslinger fighter archetype. 
Some weapon masters couldn’t stop with the innovation of the crossbow. Experimentation with alchemic components and rare metals have unlocked the secrets of controlled explosive force. The few who have survived these trials of ingenuity may become the first to create, and deftly wield the first firearms, Powerful yet dangerous ranged weapons. However, not being a perfect science, firearms carry an inherent instability that can occasionally leave the user without a functional means of attack. But when fully functional, the wielder of these weapons can become a distant force of death on the battlefield.

Episode 89: UA Class Analysis: Wizard School of Invention
01:46:47

The School of Invention claims credit for inventing the other schools of magic—a claim other wizards find absurd. Wizards of this school push magic to its limits. They stretch the known laws of arcane power and strive to reveal important truths about the nature of the multiverse. Adherents of this school believe that innovation is best served through experimentation. They have a reputation for acting first, thinking second. Most wizards are scholars who have mastered their craft through careful study, rigorous practice, and endless hours of repetition. These wizards would rather throw spells together and see what happens.

Druids of the Circle of Spores find beauty in decay. They see within mold and other fungi the ability to transform lifeless material into abundant, albeit somewhat strange, life. These druids believe that life and death are portions of a grand cycle, with one leading to the other and then back again. Death is not the end of life, but instead a change of state that sees life shift into a new form.

Episode 85: Achievements
01:17:30

Campaign Achievements


What is a campaign achievement?

It is a predefined goal that the players must achieve in game. In video games for instance, a player may earn them just playing thru the game, but some can only be earned with very specific circumstances, thus giving the player some sort of self satisfaction, or a way to impress other gamers with their “gamer score”

Today we will discuss how achievements can be constructed to be added to a D&D game by being enticing, meaningful for players. Often times, achievements are used to convince players to go out of their way to do things they wouldn’t normally do. This is a great way to figure out what is important to each player.

The goal is to increase player loyalty, motivations and interest in the campaign in addition to adding a new layer to their fun.  I love when players come up with extremely creative solutions to problems, or come up with a unique solution, or just go out of their way to have a “cool” moment. Achievements can encourage that sort of behavior.

Pacing is the rhythm of action and story progression that unfolds in encounters over the course of the session. You can keep tension and focus by having great pacing in your encounters. Generally speaking, there are three different pacing models: balanced, spike, escalation. We will be discussing how you can use these models to plan encounters for your gaming sessions.

Special Episode: Crit Academy Plays
02:17:48

This is a special episode. Our show doesn't generally release an episode for the holidays. But, we had this recording of us playing an adventure called "The Haunt". We had so much fun, we decided to release it as an extra episode for our listeners. 

If you like the adventure, I highly recommend picking it up from DM's Guild here. 

http://www.dmsguild.com/product/206076/The-Haunt?filters=45469_0_0_0_0_0_0_0&affiliate_id=1546158

We had the pleasure of having Phil on for our Monsters of the Guild episode. We discussed our romp through his creation and decided to share it. 

This is an actual play, and as such, is not the same type of content as you are used to experiencing from Crit Academy. If you're not interested in an actual play feel free to skip this episode. Our show will return after the holiday.

Thanks for listening.

Keep your blades sharp and spells prepared heroes!

Political Intrigue

Sometimes dungeon crawls aren’t your bag, or you need a change of pace. Cloak-and-dagger style play is a great way to change it up. This covers political intrigue, stealth missions, and lots of wheel n dealin to get even the slightest advantage over an opponent, aside from just tearing them from life or limb.

Episode 78: Campaign Themes
01:04:04

Summary:

Campaign Themes

Just as settings have personality that shape adventures that take place there, the theme of a campaign gives a distinct flavor to its stories. A collection of adventures where the adventurers go from dungeon to dungeon with no connection, feels very different from a year long struggle against Cult of the Dragon that culminates in a final showdown with the Tiamat herself.

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

Jordan M. from Facebook asks: Rules question – Druid is in wildshape form with full hp. He gets charmed by a Succubus who then proceeds to use draining kiss. The resulting damage meets his max hp. Does the druid A) instantly die per draining kiss rules or B) revert back to druid form?

 

Segment 3: Main Topic: (Mass Combat)

Mass combat rules are designed to allow the dmg to determine outcomes of massive battles

  • A battle rating is determined for each creature – an general measurement of combat effectiveness
  • To manage large scales – creatures organized into units.
  • Morale rating is also used to measure combat motivations
    • Fight to the death or flee
  • Each unit has a Commander – Key role with their charisma modifier applying to initiative and morale
    • Each unit must have 1 commander
  • Battle Rating is based on the creatures CR.
    • Bonus' range from +1 to +50 Table provided in UA
    • Once a unit is created you use the table to calculate BR
  • CR under ½ provide no BR
  • Creating Units
    • Each unit consists of 400 medium or smaller creatures
    • Larger sizes take more space in a unit  (table provided)
    • The larger the units the less creatures per unit
    • Unit space is measured 100 feet on each side regardless of size – for tracking purposes
    • It's best to organize similar or identical creatures to a unit
  • Ranged Attackers
    • A unit must have all creatures who can make ranged attacks at will to do so as a unit
    • Range is 100 feet unless a single unit has less than that, then use that range
  • Morale Rating
    • This acts much like an ability modifier, scale of -10 to +10 (table in UA)
    • roll d20 and add morale modifier
    • Rule of thumb, start morale at 0
    • Add Commander's Charisma modifier – represents their ability to lead and motivate
    • Factors Affecting Morale
      • Poor treatment
      • Low/No pay
      • No stake in outcome
      • Incompetent Commanders
      • Daunting, overwhelming foe
      • Poor equipment
  • Running Battles
    • Time: 1 round = 1 minute – Maneuvering hundreds of units takes time
    • Initiative: Each unit is fixed: 10+unit morale + commander charisma mod
    • A unit can move and take 1 action per turn
    • Speed: =10x its lowest members speed
      • Movement: A unit must stop moving if its adjacent to an enemy unit, unless thy disengage.
      • Miniatures: Really helps here
        • Each grid square or hex is 100 feet
  • Action Options:
    • Attack: Opposed checks between both unit's BR.
    • Advantage:
      • Attacker has Higher ground
      • Defender is adjacent to to an additional enemy unit(flanking)
    • Disadvantage:
      • Defender has partial cover
      • Defender is flanked by two friendly units
  • Morale Checks:
    • Casualties: A unit makes a DC 15 morale check if reduced to half its BR, if failed, it is removed from battle.
    • Friendly Casualties: If a friendly unit is defeated within 500 feet, the unit must make a DC 10 morale check, if failed can't move or take action on its next turn
  • Characters in Mass Combat:
    • Don't absorb them into units if you can avoid it-if you must allow them to use special abilities to effect the unit. Example Wall of Ice effects 100 foot long line.
    • Instead pause the action and give them a normal combat Zoom it to focus on the PCs, when enemy eliminated move back out to mass combat.
  • Characters in Units:
    • You can allow them to cast spells and do their actions as normal or allow them to control the units and become the commanders of their unit.
  • Critical Events:
    • If characters aren't placed as part of a unit you can have them take place in critical events during battle.
    • See table in UA.
    • These events play out like one-shot style games while the massive combat is going on around them.

Segment 4: Unearthed Tips and Tricks! (We give you creative content for your next adventure)

Character Concept: Nervous Tick

Twitch from south park

Always paranoid

Easily startled

 

Monster Variant: The Count of Montecristo

Origin: Noble

Features:

  • On Guard: While wielding a rapier, other creatures provoke an opportunity attack from you when they enter your reach.
  • Lunging Attack: When The Count makes a melee weapon attack with On Guard, it can increase its reach by 5 feet.
  • Halt: When you hit a creature with an opportunity attack, the creature’s speed becomes 0 for the rest of the turn.

 Encounter: Call of Lightning!

Entire combat takes place during a magical lightning storm.

At the end of every characters turn they make a Dex saving throw to avoid being struck by lightning. A creature that moves more than 30 ft on their turn has advantage on this saving throw. A creature that doesn't move during their turn has disadvantage on the saving throw.

 

 

Magic Item: Socketed Gems

Dungeon Master Tip: Make powerful items a liability.

Powerful Items attract unwanted attention

Have people approach the heroes and make offers on their equipment.

Have them attacked in an attempt to have their gear stolen.

Have crime syndicates break into their base of operations while their out on quests.

 

Player Tip: Don't be a Dick!

Don't try and talk while your DM is talking.

It's rude as hell

It's distracting

Half the time, nobody gives a shit what you have to say.

A special gameplay recording of us playing through a custom campaign world called Lumeria.

The tale of Lumeria is rich in lore and history, stretching back thousands of years to the creation and eventual shattering of the world.

I can tell you this for I have seen it all unfold with my very own eyes. I have observed the violence unfold and the struggle to prevent Lumeria from being torn asunder. When all's said, and done, who is to blame? It really depends on your point of view, doesn’t it? The Humans, Elves and Dwarves have chosen to blame each other. I am no Judge, Jury nor Executioner, though perhaps in my task to seek and understand Lumeria’s history the truth of the shattering will be revealed.

 

The structure is that of a one shot. Our players will be taking on the rolls of many different characters over the campaign and experience the wonders of Lumeria from many different perspectives. This also means, that we can make he encounters much more dangerous and have no fear of killing off our heroes as they adventure through Lumeria.

We hope to record our one shot once a month. Hope you enjoy.
