Hello! We're back with another video -- Starfinder - Basics of Combat Part 1: Rounds, Initiative and Surprise
https://youtu.be/eGqS8DlekJI

This is the first part in a series of videos targeting those new to the hobby. In this segment we discuss how combat in Starfinder is organized in a series of Rounds and Turns, how Initiative dictates the order in which characters take their turns, and what happens when someone is taken by surprise.

In Part 2 of this series we will discuss how players can adjust their place in the Initiative Order by Delaying or Readying an Action.

Hello! We're back with another D&D video -- Basics of Actions and Bonus Actions: https://youtu.be/bawTae3r7TQ

In our previous video we discussed how combat in D&D is structured with Rounds and Turns. And in part 2 of our Basics of Combat series we explore what a player can do when it is their turn -- take actions and bonus actions. What can you do on your turn beyond just stabbing someone? We look at concepts like Dashing, Disengaging, Hiding, and so on. This video also provides an overview of how Bonus Actions supplement your turn's activities.

We're back with another Starfinder video -- Basics of Starfinder Combat Part 2: Adjusting Initiative Order (Delay and Ready an Action)
https://youtu.be/_Z77tVryOOY

In the first part of this series we reviewed how combat was structured with a series of Rounds and Turns. In this segment we take the conversation one step forward by examining how players may adjust when they act in the initiative order -- by Delaying or Readying an Action.

In Part 3 of this series we will discuss the Actions a player may use to perform all the heroics acts one expects from a game of Starfinder!

ello! We're back with another D&D video -- Basics of Reactions and Optional Actions: https://youtu.be/8jsFRbumDaQ

In our previous video we discussed the actions a player can declare when it is their turn. And in part 3 of our Basics of Combat series we explore what a player can do when it is *not* their turn -- take Reactions. We will also be examining a number of "Optional Actions" from the Dungeon Master's Guide. These are not standard, universal rules, but are some options each DM may decide to include in their games. The Optional Actions we discuss in this video include Climb onto a Bigger Creature, Overrun, and Tumble.

In Part 4 of this series we will review the Attack Action and all the options available when a character is on the offensive.
