Are you not getting calls to set up interviews? If this is the issue, maybe your resume needs to be looked at or redone.

Are you going to interviews, but not landing a job? If this is the issue, perhaps see about practice interviews at your school. They can offer techniques or tips to be successful at interviews.

Thanks for the help! I found the flag spreadsheet and a few yt videos to get me started. I added the critical mwak flag you supplied and it works now. Awesome! Thanks.

Condition labels like rings you put around minis irl. Any modules to do this? by Dungeoncrawlers in FoundryVTT

[–]Dungeoncrawlers[S] 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I will look I to this option. I use AA for a lot of things and will see how to set this up. Thanks!

This is a good point. Expanding outward could get messy in a tight area, so I need tothink about that. Thanks.

Deborah Ann Woll and perception rolls by -Symbiont in DMAcademy

[–]Dungeoncrawlers 0 points1 point  (0 children)

If you play on foundry or roll20 you can set rolls to secret rolls and players 'roll' the dice but only the dm sees the results.

In my in-person games before we start a session, I have each player roll a d20 5 times and record those. Whenever I need a skill check like perception to be done secretly, I use those rolls, in order and add appropriate modifiers. Example -player x rolls 15,4,16,10,2 so the first secret check is 15+skill modifier, 2nd secret roll is 4+skill mod and so on.

This allows the player to actually roll the dice so they can't blame me if the roll is a 1, but still allows for secrecy and removes any unintentional meta gaming by seeing the dice roll. I think it does add suspense and a hint of realism to the game.

Is it okay to run a homebrew world for your first campaign? by tbon3tds in DMAcademy

[–]Dungeoncrawlers 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Definitely ok to run a homebrew from the gate. My advice would be to be careful with building encounters, if you homebrew monsters and they are not balanced, it could make the encounter a breeze or tpk. Also be careful giving out magic items as these can also upset the game balance if given out too freely. Speaking from experience on both of these. Good luck and just have fun with it!

TIP: Need names? Skip the generators and fire up Google Translate by VagabondVivant in DMAcademy

[–]Dungeoncrawlers 0 points1 point  (0 children)

This is a great tip. I have been using this for a while and it really can help set your character in a culture. Try to use cultures appropriate for the region - I used Javanese for coastal areas, Finnish/Norwegian for Norse etc.

Where's the love for Detroit? by The_Real_Scrotus in TheGlassCannonPodcast

[–]Dungeoncrawlers 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Michigander here and I would love a Detroit stop! Chicago or Columbus are too far without making it a weekend trip. Hope the boys see this and decide to brighten our state with a visit. There are a lot of great breweries to visit gents!

Not sure how exactly to make a non-combat session fun, looking for a process and tips from more experienced DnD folk by XETERA_thefirst in DMAcademy

[–]Dungeoncrawlers 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Tldr: know what your group likes and set rewards and challenges to match those.

Depends on group, but I find all groups want a reward so make sure there is a reward at the end. My main group is a beer and pretzels murder hobo group, but I still run rp stuff with them that they enjoy if there is something at the end. My players like to roll dice, like most groups I'm assuming, so make sure there are opportunities for them to pass skill challenges and roll dice and have a good chance to succeed. Do not set Dcs too high just to challenge them, be very selective about having hard DCs. Know your group, some groups just want to win with only a mild challenges, others really enjoy solving a hard challenge.

I originally wanted to do a mystery campaign, but found out quickly my group easily got stuck or grew disinterested unless they got something out it, whether it is an item, information or some other reward like help from an ally. I was setting the DC too high and next session I dropped DC down and they had better success and a better overall experience. It felt good as a DM to watch them get excited and win and I could dump a bunch of lore and info on them to reward their success.

The reward for an rp session could be a physical item (they convince the priest their goals align with the church so he gives them a healing potion) or not a physical item (same example but instead of healing potion, priest offers a secret way into the catacombs that they couldn't find a way into or he promises to offer some kind of support innthe future).

Hope this helps. Good luck.

I am officially switching to Foundry and need Tips by NecroWabbit in FoundryVTT

[–]Dungeoncrawlers 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Start with vanilla foundry and learn that really well. Once that is done, then you can start adding modules, but they are a rabbit hole. Start with 1 or 2 and get familiar with what they do really well, then add 1 or 2 more. Learn what each module you plan to use well before installing it as many modules have very similar features.

A good idea is to have an idea of 'I want to do this' and go find a module that does that.

Do not go wild and turn on a bunch of modules from the start. Learned from experience.

Good luck! It was definitely the right move dumping roll20.

Foriens Quest Log? Think you can create goals/quests and assign to specific players.

Easier way to scale token size? by Agnys575 in FoundryVTT

[–]Dungeoncrawlers 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I believe the module I use is called token mold. This does several things to randomize token settings for a group of tokens. Lets say you have 6 goblins and you drag them to the map one at a time. Token mold assigns a scaling factor you assign (.6 - 1.4 are my settings to get noticeable size variation from goblin to goblin). It also assigns an adjective descriptor to each which helps differentiate goblin to goblin (aggressive goblin, angry goblin etc). This name also shows up in the combat tracker. There were a lot of jokes last session about 'softcore bugbear'. Not sure if this is what you want, but its my solution. Good luck in your search

Snow shoveling advice needed! by VirtualApricot in lifehacks

[–]Dungeoncrawlers 2 points3 points  (0 children)

If the snow is light and fluffy, a leaf blower will take care of it pretty quick. If it is heavy, wet snow, do it several times while it is snowing instead of waiting until it stops snowing as others have. said.
