The Dynamic DM Duo chat about the new Matt Colville Kickstarter, “Strongholds and Followers” (2:23). Then, on the main meat of the convo, how to start thinking about worldbuilding for an RPG (5:25). Worldbuilding is hella important, even if you run a pre-written module or use a published campaign setting!
If you don’t want to go into the deep end of homebrewery, your options (at least in 5e D&D) are limited to Forgotten Realms (10:00). Matt and Rob talk about why you might want to get beyond this campaign world and some of the other less obvious options that are available to you as a DM or player!
Then, Matt and Rob talk about how to get started on your own homebrew campaign setting for your players (16:10). Your DMs of None are in the same place as you are! Listen to Matt and Rob begin to flesh out their new worlds and worldbuild right alongside you.
