S01E46: Understanding Gruber

Matt and Thom discuss proper villains in tabletop roleplaying.

In this episode of the Potomac RPG Podcast, we discuss how to build and implement villains into the game.  Topics include introducing villain backstory, running a lawful neutral villain, and understanding why a villain does what a villain does.  Also, we come up with our own villains in Let's Build Something!

In the news segment, we discuss the recent announcement that Hugh Grant will be playing the villain in the new Dungeons and Dragons movie:
