Show Notes

In this remastered episode of the RPGBOT.Podcast, we discuss running one-shot adventures and what level at which you should do so. We discuss the pros and cons of a 1st-level adventure, what levels we recommend for 5e and PF2 one-shots and why, and how to handle one-shots for classless systems and systems that don’t use the concept of levels like Shadowrun and Fantasy Flight’s Star Wars RPG.

Special thanks to @oaks_and_ravens on twitter for the question of the week this week.
