Metagaming Moments CXL - Review CCC-MACE01-01 The Blight of Geoffrey

October 12, 2019

#DnD5E #AdventureLeague In this podcast I am reviewing the adventure CCC-MACE01-01 The Blight of Geoffrey.  I bought it, have read it, prepared it and run it.  I review for story and ease of use by the Dungeon Master. This @mountogdengc adventure is above average.  For DMs only. NOT FOR PLAYERS TO LISTEN TO. It is well worth the approximately 22 minutes it takes to listen to.
