About this Episode

Are your players chewing up and spitting out your tough monsters? Does a deadly level CR seem like a walk in the park? Are you regretting letting everyone have magic items? Fear not, we are here to help you fix that. We look at ways to go beyond simply turning your big boss into a big bag of hit points -- and instead turn it into a fight that makes everyone feel like a hero.

From peppering PCs with a monster's legendary actions to triggering a PCs internal conflict with a monster's knowledge of what they truly desire, there are plenty of ways to level the playing field for the bad guy -- while creating new opportunities for players to rise to the challenge. Join us as we discuss some of our favourite ways to put the fight back into Boss Fights.
