A Year with D&D 5e Video

by Mike Shea on 19 October 2015

On Saturday, the 10th of October, I had the opportunity to engage in a discussion on the topic of "One Year with D&D 5th Edition" along with Matt Click and Kirk Wiebe at BrigadeCon, an online gaming convention.

During this video we discuss all manner of topics related to our first year with D&D 5e including the number and types of games we've ran and our own experiences with how the system works.

Some highlights include our discussion of the assymetry of D&D 5e, why banshees are just as dangerous at level 14 as they are at level 4, how strange spikes in power can make for more interesting stories, comparing the feeling of 5e to Pathfinder and 4e, running narrative combat in 5e, and how an abolith can dominate a fight with careful conversations while stuck inside of a force cage.

You can watch the video below or view the video on Youtube. Enjoy!
