  Exciting news! The NewbieDM Minicast is joining the awesome “Don’t Split the Podcast Network”  of RPG and gaming podcasts!

I’ve been looking at how I run my games lately. I’ve been thinking about minis, paper minis, and tokens, and what I want for my game and my table. Tomb of Annihilation has a SHIT LOAD of possible random encounters. It is a hex crawl after all…a damn good one, but a hex crawl nonetheless […]
