Maps vs Theater of the Mind (Tome 293)

In this episode Jeff and Tracy sit down with guests Ishmael Alvarez, Mike Shea, and Sam Dillon to discuss map use in your D&D games.

Rebinding Your Damaged Books (Tome 291)

In this episode Jeff is joined by two Tome Show newbies - Simon Oberbrinkmann and Jason Shamblin - to talk about rebinding damaged D&D books. The 5e D&D core books are notorious for falling apart due to the glue used in the binding process. What can you do do when this happens? Other than Calling Wizards of the Coast's customer service line, you can rebind your books yourself, or have a local shop do it. Listen to this episode to hear more!

Here are images of the rebound books discussed in the episode:

Alignment in D&D (Tome 290)

In this episode Jeff and Tracy are joined by an all star cast! Their guests are Dan Dillon, a prolific freelancer who publishes most of his work with Kobold Press, Shawn Merwin, who hosts the Down with D&D Podcast and writes for the Adventurer's League, and Stephen Radney-MacFarland, a former D&D designer who now designs for Paizo Publishing! This motley group has a lively discussion about alignment in your games - a bit on the history of alignment systems, how they have evolved over the different editions of the game, if you should use them, why you should use them, how you should use them - the good, the bad, and the ugly!
