Therren Does The YouTubes!

Therren Does The YouTubes!

Yeah, just like the title suggests, I've started a YouTube channel for, what else, tabletop gaming. Feel free to give it the once over - or twice, thrice, and so on - and expect some regular updates as I move forward.

A little experimentation can go a long way, and will always at the very least be a bit of a learning experience. Unfortunately in this case experimentation ended up backfiring on me, since my attempt to stabilize my recording software ended up causing less stabilization in the encode at the end. Nonetheless, brief blackouts aside, a new video is up. And though it's a bit odd to treat you to part 4 when I haven't shared parts 1 through 3 yet, here's part 4 of my ongoing series, So, You Want To Be A GM: Planning Your Adventures.

Today saw part 5 of my GMing series go live, and with it the end of its initial run. The format's a touch different from the rest in the series, but when dealing with a topic as nebulous as making your games fun a freeform video feels a little more natural, at least for me. Give it a look and thanks for your support.

Apart from my series on GMing I've also been running a showcase for the Savage Worlds system. The second video in that series is now up. In it, we explore character creation in Savage Worlds using their Deadlands setting.

After a serious computer failure I'm back with more videos. We start with the first entry in my series on how to be a great player, Striving for Greatness:

...and follow it with something a bit more fun, an impromptu talk spurred on by a question from a friend about wild shape and how it can be affected by sexual dimorphism.

You know what's fun? Putting the work into making a video based on a friend's suggestion and then finding out that friend gave you half the story! So fun!

As mentioned at the end of my first wild shape video, an addendum was needed to further clarify the situation my friend was in when she asked me her question.

Over the past few months I've found myself musing on the value of challenge ratings in the games that offer them. Are they as useful as they seem, do their benefits outweigh their failings, etc. So, I finally decided to put my thoughts on video.

Earlier this week I purchased "Before the Storm" by Christie Golden, the prequel novel to World of Warcraft's upcoming Battle for Azeroth expansion. I also decided to make a review of it, spoiler free for the sake of those interested in reading it.

It's coming later than I'd have liked - ideally, I'd have reviewed it the day it came out, but outside forces in my life prevented that - but I've finally had a chance to go through the latest 5e Unearthed Arcana, the Giant Soul Sorcerer. What were my thoughts on it? Take a look to find out.

Due to a couple intrinsic mistakes I made in the creation of this build, this link is now obsolete and the original video is no longer available. It has been replaced with an update, linked below.

Today, on the request of a friend, we break into my first 5E character build, an attempt to recreate some of the style and feel of the Dervish prestige class from 3.5.
