Splatbook 106 - I'm DMing 2e for the first time! HALP!

Post by rendclaw »

We ride to the rescue for this episode! Join DM's Glen, Fulongamer, Cory and Brian as they give a helping hand to those in need! After a round of emails, they break out the Jaws of Life. First, the guys introduce a multi-part 99% Perspiration segment inspired by an emailer to the show who was DMing 2nd Edition for the first time and asked for our help. After that they break down using poisons and herbalism, and bring things to a close by discussing various methods of generating memorable NPCs.
