SQ0: Introducing BecomingDM Sidequests!
1:42We're introducing something a little new here at becomingDM. Over the past several years we have found that there have been several topics that have come up that just didn't warrant a full episode. An introduction to a new game system, niche or custom rules, and a number of other topics have all fallen into this. Usually that meant that those topics just didn't get addressed. becomingDM Side Quests aims to cover those topics in a shorter form episode than our standard main episode format! We've got new episodes of the Side Quest coming soon and they will appear in your same becomingDM feed with an episode prefix of "SQ"
