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!

Have Spellbook Will Travel (Performance Check 005)

In this episode of Performance Check, Jon interviews James Introcaso and Rudy Basso, creators and performers of “Have Spellbook, Will Travel”

Performance Check is a monthly show focused on how to be better roleplayers. Some shows focus on skills to use at the table to make more interesting and memorable characters that shine. We'll also be interviewing players from Actual Play podcasts and Twitch streams, learning how they have crafted their characters and what we can learn from them. Performance Check isn't about mechanics or making the best build or the most technical character, it's about making characters that people remember and love for years to come
