Marsh Attacks! Session Zero (5E D&D)


We’re kicking off our shiny new 5E campaign with some world building! I let my players create the world they want to play in and, well, they created a frigid swamp hellscape. So that’s cool. 

In this episode, you’ll hear us using the CATS method to discuss what sort of game we want to play, which is something I suggest every group does before starting a new campaign. After that, we go into a question and answer session to flesh out the player’s starting location and de facto home base. I consider myself a pretty creative guy but yeah, the players really understood the task and ran with it full speed. I’ll toss the list of questions I asked here if anyone would like to use them for their own session zero.

Of course, you can find us on your favorite podcatcher here:  or, if you prefer, Apple Podcasts. Or maybe YouTube!
