Advantage to Insight | Novels

Click to listen!

As long as their are roleplaying games, there will always be reading! But before interactive media and videos, there were multiple novels a year–sometimes per month–that would have a Dungeons & Dragons associated label. Drizzt, Elminister, Raistlin, Rikus–all heroes from paperback and imagination. Where are those novels now? How well do they stack up to the entertainment today? All this and more–this week on Advantage to Insight!

Experience at Queen City Conquest

Pardon my absence, I was out of time enjoying the blue sky on an island. The weekend following my return to Canada the Queen City Conquest convention happened. A friend and I drove there early in the morning from Canada to Buffalo to play a whole day of D&D. Three sessions throughout the day and the earliest one started at 8am and the last one at 7pm. This shows you the dedication we have for this game.

The convention did not only host D&D games but activities ranging from board games to retro video games with unique vendors. The venue itself was pretty decent with enough space for the crowd and the food options were limitless. A block further was a street with all kind of food so you really did not have to buy expensive convention food.

The DMs were phenomenal and ran through the Adventurer’s league module perfectly. This would be my second Epic and my only feedback is about the Epic. I myself was scheduled to DM at the first Epic but gave my spot to someone else. Reading the small part I had to do was already overwhelming so I do understand what most DM had to go through as well as the organizers of the convention. The Epic was great don’t get me wrong but it could have been better and more prepared for the night. It was a late session which for some reason is always the Epic’s time slot and I understand most of the organizers, players and DMs would be tired by then but the running all over the place to get the game going at the last minute could have been avoided.

The Epic usually goes more than 4 hours with new players and starting late does not help with the time constrain. This would be my only “opportunity for next time” feedback and other than that I had a blast.

Overall we got to meet all kind of people, played amazing D&D with amazing DMs, spend the whole day in Buffalo and driving home proved more challenging than we expected on 2-3 hours sleep but we had an awesome time and look forward to attending it in the future. I would give it a solid 8 out of 10.

#RPGaDAY 2016 | Best Advice

31st: Best advice you were ever given for your game of choice?

A friend told me to listen to Chris Perkin’s seminar from Gamehole Con 2015. This got me listening to Gaming and BS, then Misdirected Mark, joining the #Chatroom4Life, writing more articles on Visionary, improving my DM skills, etc. etc., and now we have our own show–Advantage to Insight–and we are exponentially more involved in the D&D and gaming community. Can’t beat that advice.

Thanks for reading all month! Join us in September for brand new content!

#RPGaDAY 2016 | Ideal Game Room

30th: Describe the ideal game room if the budget were unlimited.

I am sure this can get pretty silly, but mine ideal is pretty simple. I want a well-appointed room, good table, comfortable chairs, maybe a flat-screen for a battle map. I also want a gymnasium-sized room setup for either gaming or sports or both so that I can host events. It is not a solo game, afterall.
