This week we take a journey beyond our Crystal Sphere, out into the multiverse -- bolding exploring new races being playtest in the latest Unearthed Arcana release. Join us for Giff, Plazmoids, Autognomes and more! We look at our favourites among the stars, and discuss what the realease of the Spelljamer setting would mean for 5e. Welcome to Like D…
 
With the recent release of new Feywild source books, we look at the highlights that we love about this new dimension of D&D. We dig into new races, new monsters, new magic items -- and a new way to build a fey campaign setting that is very similar to how the Domains of Dread were laid out in Van Richten's Guide. Join us as we build an Archfey, and …
 
With the new Feywild camapign setting just around the corner, we look at some of the existing mythology of the Feywild, of the Seelie Court and the Gloaming Court, of the Archfey who make up each court, and of the popular culture (and folklore) you can draw upon to make this your own setting -- and how easily the stories of such a place can be told…
 
So, you've decided to make a new character. Though you might be tempted by the simplicity and comfort of human, we encourage you to take a look at all of the possibilities out there in the Forgotten Realms (and beyond!). This week, we discuss which race gives you the best setup for early game mechainics and long-term roleplay. From Tortles to Yuan-…
 
The age old question: is it better to award XP, or to gain levels at set milestones? Is there a way to do it so that it doesn't go too fast? Or too slow? To encourage richer style of play, or encourage better attendance at the table? These are the carrots of progress the DM must weigh, and distribute to the worthy. This week we talk about our exper…
 
In a game where players obsess over optimization, and DMs call for skill checks around every corner, it's important to remember that the dice aren't everything (sorry to all you who have crippling dice addictions). Sometimes the rules in D&D just don't make sense, but instead of just arbitrating some sort of ability check -- we recommend you call f…
 
This week we talk about the implications of healing potions as the main source of 'non-magical' healing in a campaign, discussing rules-as-written all the ways you can heal your party and introducing experimental new rules for diversified healing in your setting, including bandages, salves, and surgical operations. Welcome to Like Dragon Like Son, …
 
As a DM looking for ways to encourage more RP between players, you might want to consider our table rules for campfire interactions and downtime activities.

Dare to live the wild life of a goblin, bugbear or hobgoblin! Join us this week as we delve deep into what we love about these interconnected races, and some of our favourite ideas for building PCs with them that break free of tired old stereotypes. These characters are sometimes comical, sometimes chaotic, and as we discuss, maybe even sometimes s…
 
We take a long walk into the woods of travel and exploration. This key pillar of adventure is often skipped over, but with a little bit of forethought it can provide your players with a more immersive world, and you as a DM the shared excitement of discovering the unknown. We look at how to use random generated story that works to enhance your camp…
 
This week father and son face off in a showdown to decide which is better: making a fantasy robot character using the Warforged race from Eberron, or building one using the Reborn race from Van Richten's Guide. Two robots enter, but only one can prevail! We compare features and traits, overall role play potential and additional add-ons. It's a clos…
 
Are your players chewing up and spitting out your tough monsters? Does a deadly level CR seem like a walk in the park? Are you regretting letting everyone have magic items? Fear not, we are here to help you fix that. We look at ways to go beyond simply turning your big boss into a big bag of hit points -- and instead turn it into a fight that makes…
 
Traps have been a part of the D&D experience since its earliest days. But a lot has changed over the years. Join us as we poke at some traps with a 10' pole, and learn how today's best uses of traps can enhance your next adventure. From Gygazian meat grinders to Van Richten's Haunted traps, we tip toe around the pressure plates to show you how to (…
 
There are some subclasses which no one plays because, well, they kind of suck. We often ask what it would take to make them suck less -- but also not to get too overpowered that they make the DM want to pull out their hair. This week both Jay and Jack bring some ideas together on what the Banneret subclass (aka Purple Dragon Knight) is all about (l…
 
Once again we offer a look at how to break out of tired tropes: this time with the Bard. Internet memes would have you believe that these characters only reason to exist is to seduce everything they come in contact with. So we want to go a different direction with this build, what if our bard is really very good at preaching and has found a home wi…
 
Like Father Like Son is back for Season 3!

This week we look at how much you should charge for that magic item in the window. We all know that pricing items within the fantasy economy of a D&D campaign can be tricky. As a DM, you are trying to provide a balance between retail realism and just keeping the story moving. And it helps to have some sort of accurate guide for whenever a PC might …
 
We dive into a different type of build this week. Instead of making a character, we are building a nemesis for our players -- someone truly evil, someone beyond redemption. Join us as we dig into Chapter 2 of Van Richten's Guide to Ravenloft and build a Darklord of our own. We also tap into some tables from Xanathar's, the DMG and even turn some ca…
 
We compare some of the Domains of Dread from the recently released Van Richten's Guide to the Domains originally published in Ravenloft: Realm of Terror box set published in 1990, and talk about some ideas for how we might run these as part of a campaign. We also discuss a new domain that adds some much needed Asian inspiration to the realm, along …

We offer you Dark Gifts, which come with even Darker Bargains: in exchange for the next hour of your life, we give you the forbidden knowledge that is the Like Drago…
 
In the back of the DM's Guide is an often overlooked section about using spell points instead of spell slots. While many dismiss this as too confusing, on closer examination, this might be just the ticket for giving sorcerers that extra love they deserve...that and a few other tweaks, like light armor proficieny and Constitution as their casting ab…
 
We all like to build cool, interesting characters. We like breaking tropes, and coming up with original concepts. But often that's not enough. This episode, we look at not just building a good character, we look at building "the right character". Even the best character build will be terrible if they don't fit in with the setting, and they don't fi…
 
Is it possible to break D&D? What does it even mean when someone says, "That's totally broken!"? We investigate this idea and discuss how there is almost nothing, mechanically speaking, that can be introduced to the game that can't be managed somehow. And then we look at the one place where things are not always so easy to manage -- people's feelin…
 
This week we hope to inspire you to re-examine subclass features you may have overlooked. We take a second look at a the Forge Domain Cleric, and in particular their unique Channel Divinity. Join us as we discuss how our Kobold cleric build would potentially generate hundreds of gold coin per day, just through an act of devotion to their diety. The…

Jack and Jay go up the beanstalk this week to talk about all about something really big: giants! We work our way through the Ordning (social structure), from lowly playable giant-kin like Goliaths and Firbolgs, all the way to the top of the clouds and into the storms! We talk about their magic, their runes, their culture -- and even some fun ways t…

We peer into the dark forbidden corners of adventure to reveal the elements that make horror jump out at your players in a way that regular campaign settings might not. We look at how to play up the unknown, how to unsettle characters, and how to use foreshadowing to make monsters worse in the minds of PCs. We talk about how to add terrifying detai…
 
Sometimes we can't get past the sight of blood...and because of that we don't make bloodhunters. We don't even taken the time to read the class features, or the sub-classes. Until someone comes along to take us by the hand, and show us some of the really cool things about this Critical Role class. Join us as Jack guides Jay on this learning journey…

And we discuss how these character may, or may not, fit into your next (or current) horror campaign. Welcome to Like Dragon Like Son, a podcast hosted by Jay and Jack Oatway where they…
 
Sometimes an encounter with a monster doesn't have to become a fight. As a DM, to create opportunities for players to talk to the bad guys, you need to know what the monster wants (or at least have a handy table on stand-by that you can roll on to find out what they want). We look at how the "guidelines" for parley work, and how you as a player mig…
 
We look at a few ways to have more fun with the whole party on steeds! And not just your average horses. We have everything from Axebeaks to Owlsbears.

Right now, DMs are out there planning for something for their next session. They making maps, building encounters, and weaving intricate plots.

If you ever feel like the latter, we are here to offer some comfort: have a few handy random…
 
As part of a New Year Resolution to try new things in D&D, we have been making characters we wouldn't normally make, starting with a Druid-Warlock. It's a strange combo, but with a little creativity, we've come up with a cool pirate build for your next Swordcoast adventure. Or if you are looking to push the boundraies of all that is magically possi…
 
It's important that we start the New Year off on the right foot, so we are setting our sights on some goals for the new year: which classes to play that we haven't given a chancve to, which races could we try that we've never tried before, how to play more with more people, and how far should we puch our mini collection? Join us this week for some …
 
This week we make our list a check it twice, finding out which magic items are naughty or nice -- it's like a holiday gift guide for all those DMs out there who don't know what to give their players...or for the players who don't know what to ask for this mid-winter festival.

Welcome to Like Dragon Like Son, a podcast hosted by Jay and Jack …
 
In a time when more and more of us are increasingly playing online, we've noticed a deminishing amout of roleplay -- both in our own online games, and the ones we watch online. The advent of virtual table tops has brought combat to forefront of many games. And while that is fun, it's only one of D&D's three pilars. So we ask ourselves, how do we br…
