After the party entered the cave, and Basha the Tusky jerked off three wolves and gained their loyalty, the gang took the pack with them deeper into Cragmaw Cave in search of the human who may know the location of the map to the castle and Wave Echo Cave (we have named him Stellan Skarsgård because we cannot remember his real name).

As we delve further, we come to a crossroads and find our first adventure lurking quietly under the bridge…

Episode 80 – Dungeons and Dragons Campaign

Welcome to the first recorded session of Nerdy Bitches Podcast Beginners Dungeons and Dragons Campaign! This is Part 1 of our 2nd game session. We are playing with the 5th Edition Starter Set using a pre-generated campaign and characters. Since this is the first time playing for nearly all of our game members, we wanted to start with the basics and go from there. You can check out our previous episode on D&D to hear about the players and their experience levels, as well as common myths and misconceptions about the game itself here: Episode 73: Dungeons and Dragons for Beginners.

During our first session, we met the characters (pulled from the 5th edition Player’s Handbook. The Starter Set does include five pre-generated characters to start.) and began our adventure. We did not record this session as it was really long and there was a lot of learning curve since nearly all of our players were newbies. We have a player, Jessica (from our Cosplay and Geek Crushes episodes), playing a Half-Elf Bard named Ivane, but she was unable to attend this session, so her character has been stricken with food poisoning as this session opens.

Players in this episode include:

  • Liz – Wood Elf Ranger, Rivonel the Melodious (aka River Song)
  • Heather – Dragonborn Sorcerer, Joyassa
  • Producer Craig – Drow Rogue, Shyntal’drin Ale’urden
  • Mandy (Casterquest) – Half-Orc Paladin, Ba’Sha the Tusky
  • Thirsty (Dogfin Radio) – Human Cleric, Brigid
  • Operaman (aka Paul) – Dungeon Master

Listen in as we head back to the cave from our first adventure to rescue someone, save some shit, and find some treasure! Make sure you follow us on Twitter, Facebook, Instagram, and Pinterest to keep up with the latest game play episodes!

Episode 73 – Dungeons and Dragons for Beginners

In this episode, Liz and Heather sit down with friends to talk about Dungeons and Dragons for beginners! We have with us Jessica (previously on our Cosplay and Geek Crush episodes) and Mandy from the podcast CasterQuest! This roundtable discussion consists of all newbies to the game of D&D and a little bit of information about the game’s history, myths and stereotypes, and pre-game talk for our new 5th edition campaign.

This episode is really our pre-game discussion before we mount our first campaign. Liz has played a handful of times, Heather hasn’t ever played, Jessica and Mandy have at least looked at a game before. We talk about why (or why not) someone would want to be the DM versus a player. We also talk about some of the things that may have kept us from playing this game before now.

We are playing the D&D 5th Edition Starter Set. This is a pre-generated game that includes the story, the character sheets, and even dice, where anyone can pick it up and learn to play. Operaman is serving as our DM for our game and Producer Craig is playing with us as well. We may be recording the game-play episodes as we go, but we will see how things progress. We will at the very least have a follow up episode after we complete the starter set game.

Liz explains the history of D&D that she got off this video here…

and a brief bit of info about how to play 5th edition with this video here…

The second video series is pretty awesome and breaks things down so they are much easier to understand than trying to read or explain how to play the game.

Also, to hear about stereotypes of D&D, check out this video…

So stay tuned for our upcoming D&D game episodes because they are sure to be incredibly entertaining!
