Hi Hal

Just wondering if you plan any more d&d 5E content/adventures on youtube like the 'Lost mines'  I for one could do with the fix as my 2 year campaign of 'The Rise of Tiamat' will be ending soon and I need some thing, anything.

Not very likely if you listened to the last Lost Mines podcast.  After trying the intro module they pronounce it inferior to Pathfinder.

Wouldn't exactly say inferior. But, for me at least, not as satisfying to play as I prefer a greater breadth of options. It is a very solid system and good for what it does.

I think if anything some of the critique had to do with the adventure writing and how it presented the game. I still can't quite forgive it for that hazard in the goblin cave that caused big damage with no save or roll and just seemed so arbitrary. And I think the official modules are "hard as balls" from what I've heard, so critique of the adventure writing wouldn't stop if using officially published material.

But the system itself is good. Probably I'd enjoy it more as a spell caster class or outright GMing.

Curse of Strahd has gotten some positive reviews, though - but if the official modules aren't to your tastes, why not try some fan creations?

For example, Encounter Roleplay has published a bunch of free D&D 5E scenarios, including The Fasting Worm at the Spider Feast, Fishing for Gods in Strade’s Gallows, and The Sun Goes Down with a Ruby Smile.


Haven't personally played any of them, but the titles sound pretty appetizing. ;) If Hal or Lockhart decided to DM some of these, the site could also get a bit of free publicity, since Encounter Roleplay would probably be happy to post a link to the play-thru podcast of their adventure.

They even released one on Hal's birthday, called The Shaman of Shamblers! :) It looks like a fairly fun, short adventure, which could be used for a one-shot.

...And of course, you could still try Burlesque House Siege. ;)
