For the past month, I’ve invested quite a bit of time into my YouTube channel. In addition to a new article here on every Friday at 7:00 p.m. Eastern Time, I’ve released at least two videos a week on YouTube. Most of them are audio versions of my articles, starting all the way back at the first article I wrote in 2018. Slowly and steadily, I’m moving closer to the present day.

Here's my current schedule, videos & all; I've held to it since early February:

  • D&D videos on Wednesday @ 7:00 p.m. Eastern Time on YouTube.
  • D&D articles on Friday @ 7:00 p.m. Eastern Time on
  • Path of Exile videos whenever inspiration strikes or news hits.

My D&D videos are mostly for people who prefer listening to content being read to them over reading it themselves. Though the audience over there is small and I get very few views, I think it’s worth it in the long run. YouTube isn’t dying anytime soon and I don’t plan on stopping my articles anytime soon, so I think having a version of them you can listen to is definitely worth it. By the end of this year, I plan on being completely up-to-date, so articles & videos will come out on the same day.

If you’re interested in those videos, head on over to the RJD20 channel on YouTube. There, you’ll find multiple playlists: Legendary Lessons TL;DR, Musing Over Monsters TL;DR, Worldforge TL;DR, Best Bits TL;DR, and D&D Prep Talk. That’s all my D&D-related content.

On top of those playlists and videos, you might notice I listed something else above...

Path of Exile

In addition to Dungeons & Dragons, I’ve been playing Path of Exile. I started in November 2019 and haven’t looked back. I’m legitimately hooked on this game — I’m confident it’s my favorite video game ever at this point. I enjoy the story, gameplay, release schedule, and community greatly, so much I wanted to represent it. Right now, I’m only making videos for it but that might translate to a few articles if I am feeling inspired.
Image result for path of exile wall paperIf you enjoy gritty, complex, and fast-paced action roleplaying games, you’ll enjoy Path of Exile. I particularly enjoy its story, something ARPGs aren’t known for. A few of my videos go over it, especially some of the mysteries present in the world of Wraeclast.

In Summary

If you're interested in content other than articles from me, go ahead and subscribe to my channel on YouTube. If you enjoy non-D&D content and Path of Exile sounds exciting to you, head on over there as well. You won't regret it.

Until next time folks, farewell!

My Take on Matthew Colville’s 5E Action Oriented Monsters

Soaring into a manifest zone on their airship, the Misty Tide, the party erupts into a pocket of the Elemental Plane of Fire high above a sea of bubbling lava. Surrounding them are hissing fire newts mounted upon burning birds, prepared to hijack the airship and release the fire elementals powering it. The airship’s captain screams, “Hold out! We’ll escape ‘ere in a minute, I’ll get us through!” In response, the fiery raiders attack, lead by a striking fire newt warlock. The combat begins, and she thrusts her molten scimitar into the broiling air. The blade soars between each party member, scorching them with ease before reforming in her hands. Later in the combat, she deftly descends atop her burning bird below the airship, narrowly avoiding a blast of eldritch energy. In the struggle’s final moments, she dismounts from her tiny phoenix in a whirl, leaping thirty feet to gouge one of the party members with her scimitar and deal tremendous damage. Ultimately, she fails; the rest of h…

The Case of Screen v. Screenless

It's Tuesday night. The companions of the Caught in Galen campaign are split across the community of Vorici’s Rest. My notes are laid bare before me for tonight’s session. Luna walks the stone halls of a temple, unknowingly moving closer to a beholder-like beast. Flux jogs toward the Azure Graveyard, the bloodstone he needed to dispose of tossed in a nearby alley. Roy stalks toward the Faded Ember Inn with Skraw before coming face-to-face with a humanoid made of twinkling stars and eyes like radiant suns. 
Meanwhile, Jason and Ignis harry two warforged desperate to detonate the necrombombs in the cemetery. From the shadows, Jason expertly twirls bolas at one of the warforged’s feet! I roll to save: 4! The table cheers. With his pact-formed longbow, Ignis rains eldritch blasts on the other warforged. The disabled warforged attempts to remove the bolas: 1! The table cheers. Jason rushes to the fleeing warforged, stepping between Ignis’s booming blasts. The on-the-ground warforged tri…

How to Begin a D&D Campaign

The world is created, the characters are made, and the starting location is set, but how do you begin a Dungeons & Dragons campaign? There are many lines to check off on your list. Is the starting point created? Are all the session zeros finished? Is the initial plot formulated? Is the opening scene ready to go? As I prepare for the start of my next D&D campaign, Caught in Galen, I’m going to help you or anyone else out there itching to begin a campaign correctly complete their pre-campaign checklist.
The D&D Campaign’s Starting Point Where will the campaign begin? This is a key question you should know before your players begin to make their characters that I dedicated an entire article to awhile back. Will the party explore the titanic ruins of a dragon empire on a jungle continent? Will they delve into the depths of the Subterrane in chase of a rogue celestial? Will they begin caught in a giant city of an inherently magical population? Know this before anything else. Y…

An Icewind Dale: Rime of the Frostmaiden Supplement - Abominable Adventures

Icewind Dale: Rime of the Frostmaiden hit the shelves on September 15, 2020. Wizards of the Coast’s summer 2020 adventure module encompasses the rise of a sinister threat around Faerun’s frozen northland civilization: Ten-Towns. Over the course of a Frostmaiden campaign, adventurers overcome burying blizzards, hunt a magical moose, and rid the snowy region of Auril the Frostmaiden and Goddess of Winter. Alongside the published module, a plethora of content creators have released and are continuing to release supplements to assist players and Dungeon Masters exploring Icewind Dale.
Abominable Adventures - An Encounter Guidebook in the Frozen Tundra is one such supplement.

Its creators kindly provided me with a review copy which I had a splendid time reading; outlined below is my review of it. This review includes a broad overview of the supplement, what I see as its best bit, and an area where it could be improved upon.

Before you make your decision on the buy, please take your time and …
