We are joined by Christian Hoffer, writer for Comicbook.com. We discuss his blog series "Anatomy of a D&D Campaign" a week-by-week look at the planning of Dungeons & Dragons sessions. While D&D 101 looks at broader topics, Anatomy of a D&D Campaign will dig a little deeper into technical elements, with discussions about encounter design, crafting unique monsters, and handling unique challenges that come up at the table.
