Hey DM Academy Nation! TLDR: Any good recs for – 1) published adventures/ campaigns – official WoTC or indie, such as DMs Guild, 2-Min RPG, etc? 2) live play shows that do a good job running published stuff?
I'm a newish DM, been running a homebrew weekly game for about a year and now want to jump into some published adventures.
We started Rime of the Frostmaiden with my table recently – excellent so far. We play that on alternating weeks from the regular homebrew sessions. I'm thinking about cutting back with this current table to only twice a month, and then finding a second table to DM where I could practice running published material.
I want to learn how to run more published adventures with the hopes of a) making my life easier prepping and running, and b) because I'm currently working on a DnD "live play" YouTube channel and would like to eventually feature other content creators on my show. I want to be able to put my own spin on whatever I'm running while remaining faithful to the original content.
But like – where do I even begin? Is Avernus any good? What about Aqusitions Incorporated? Or what about indie writers? I've been enjoying MT Black lately, as well as 'Friends, Foes, and other Fine Folks' for world-building/NPC inspiration. What else should I be reading? I feel like I'm both behind the ball and totally inundated in reading material, at the same time!
Please lmk any good reading material y'all think I should dip into, and any good live play shows to learn from. I'm a big fan of Dimmension20 and NADDPOD, as well as stuff that DMDave on Patreon creates; anything like that I'm def down to check out. For my own show I'm going to have a strong focus on creating content that proudly celebrates all things LGBTQI+, and will feature a multi cultural cast. Additionally I'd very much like to offer a platform to players/participants with disabilities on my show, as well. Just like a super freaking inclusive DnD party! 🥳🧙♀️🏳️🌈🏳️⚧️🎆🎇🎈✨
Thanks in advance for your help, your wise wizards of the Reddits !!! 🙏🧙♀️🧝♀️🧚♀️
