We discuss the rules on Tool Proficiency and Crafting: How much realism do you want in your game? What tools do you actually use in a game? We are joined by Mike and Giuseppe, of the Bookwyrms podcast, a show where the pair of DMs pull their favorite mechanics from other systems and how that can be incorporated into D&D 5e.
Have you ever found yourself after a game of Dnd debating over a particular rule that came up and trying to figure out as a group how to break it? As a DM do you get that feeling of dread when your player says, "If you look at it this way?" Well we decided to turn that into a podcast. A group of DMs come together every episode as we discuss how, rules as written, we can figure out how to maximize what we can do with a rule and how we can use other rules to break the game.
Each episode we will be joined by a guest, including DMs from some of our favorite podcasts, get a sneak peek behind the DM screen from some of our favorite shows as they share their own thoughts and experiences on a particular rule and how it has affected their games.
Please feel free to jump in on our discussions by leaving us a comment on Podbean, iTunes, Googleplay, or Stitcher. Or feel free to email me at firstname.lastname@example.org or send us a tweet to @rulesaswritten and let us know how the rule may have come up during one of your games or how you figured out a way to break the game that we did not discuss.
