Ireland Four One One Forever!

I am a numbers guy. I recently noticed that we have 4% of our traffic coming to this blog from Ireland. This is the biggest group outside of the US to visit our page. I think it’s really awesome that we have an international audience. Interesting thing is that our listenership statistics don’t have any traffic for the podcast coming from Ireland.

Ireland if you are listening let us know you are out there. in another country? Let us know you are out there.

Into the Open

Feedback is a gift. As the party emerges from beneath the Temple of the Fallen Angel (Betula’s Temple) I would like to once again pause and ask “How are we doing?” What can we be doing better, what should we keep doing, what should we stop doing?

We hope you are enjoying the story so far. We have monsters, giants, kobolds and a dragon coming your way,

Are you a Scouter who plays D&D and wants a turn at the table? Let us know your interested. No promises, but I am curious and entertaining some ideas.

New episode on 8/7. New cast member. Many Mini-muffins.

Tells Us About Your Scouter Game

As scout leaders we take on many roles and serve others. We can’t be the only Scout Leaders who are our there playing D&D and TTRPG. We would love to hear what games you are playing. Playing a 2e adventure? How about the new Stargate 5e port? Running Water Deep: Dragon Heist with your Pack Leaders? We want to hear about it.

Chris (Thandor), Seth (Korin) and George (Statan Hobberfield who you have yet to meet) and I have a Dragon Heist campaign that got us hooked on playing together. They are fast approaching the end of the module. We started with the Jimmy Meritt’s “Handful of Heists: Tower Heist Adventure” and have been weaving our way around Waterdeep ever since. The gang at Troll Skull Manor has themself surrounded by Xanathar’s Guild, the Zentarium, and all the other baddies in the module and are battling the gang from Gareth’s Olde Towne Tavern (yes, a Cheers themed enemy). It has gotten us through the pandemic.

Rachel (Fezzik) and I are play in another game where we are fighting our way through Avernus. She is the muscle (a fighter/paladin) and I am the rogue (a kobold bounty hunter). It’s a blast and inspired us to get together. That and we all have Wood Badge and Scouting in common. Wood Badge is just awesome training for Scouters.

Tell us how D&D brings your Scouting friends together. Tell us why you play. Join the fun.

Are you a D&D Player that want to help others? We are alway in need of amazing creative people to step up and help us help youth help others. Reach out to find out how you can add Scouting to your extracurriculars.

Self Promotion Saturday? Promote Yourself or Ourself?

Simulated TTRPG Community Connections

I spent a long time in the back of my wife’s car today. We were road tripping to see a part of the state we have never been to visit before (or at least not together). Last weekend I dabbled in bringing Leaders N Legacies out in the world. I noticed something called #SelfPromoSaturday while getting my tweet on. At first it seems like it was simply a guilt free excuse to drop your creative project in the public view with a catchy little (or big) hashtag.

I spent some time putting my wares on threads and then I came along a post from @HN2DM (the “How Not to DM Podcast”). Assuming it’s Derek, the host, posting and he had a wonderful twist on #SelfPromoSaturday was supposed to work.

The instruction that caught my eye “TAG somebody else who is making awesome stuff”. As my wife would remind me “This isn’t about you, Dave”. It’s about uplifting the community. And the D&D #TTRPG community is amazing, diverse and making a difference for each other. There are so many benefits to being part of this community. The Scouter in this loves this. In fact we started one of our podcast with part of this quote.

“But the real way to get happiness is by giving out happiness to other people. Try and leave this world a little better than you found it and when your turn comes to die, you can die happy in feeling that at any rate you have not wasted your time but have done your best.”

Lord Baden-Powell (https://www.goodreads.com/author/quotes/262101.Baden_Powell)

I can’t think about a better way to support the creative efforts of a lot of people and to connect others to that content that #SelfPromoSaturday. Taking the time to promote “Ourself” as vibrant community is a much better paradigm that promoting “Yourself” as a singular creator. Kudos for @HN2DM for pointing this out to me.

So please check out these amazing podcasts and creators:

Join @TheBad_DM and his amazing cast of characters for all their adventures every Friday on #FaeforgeFriday. Then go support them so Stephen can bring a more content.
Leah (@greenleafgeek) has some awesome handmade dice. So pretty and fun to roll.
