Collaborative Homebrew 101: A Cure for the Common Murderhobo – Panel at PAX South 2018

We’ve all been there: After hours of meticulously planning an epic campaign, our players kill the quest NPC and run off after the first shiny thing they see. The cure for this problem may be easier than you think. With your help we’ll create a world from scratch, and then we’ll crowdsource some story hooks with the audience to create a whole campaign of our own. You can steal this adventure and use it in your own game, or steal the techniques and keep your players chomping at the bit. (The map referred to in the panel is included in this post.

This panel was held at PAX South 2018.

wheelhouseGames like Dungeons and Dragons are often regarded by pop culture as nerdy and antisocial, but Wheelhouse Workshop founders Adam Davis and Adam Johns use them to help their neurodiverse teen clients become more confident and socially capable. Come hear how these lifelong gamers used their training in counseling, drama therapy, and human development to embark on a new frontier in therapy, ask questions about your own gaming experience, and celebrate how the games we love are more than just games. This panel was recorded at PAX South 2016.
