Unleash your games potential by embracing the spirit of improv acting.Want a little help getting that finely crafted character or NPC from the page into the game? Or maybe you've got all these ideas as a DM, but find it tricky to run those flowing, exciting sessions you see in your mind? Well, Joanna Gaskell is here to help. She's a cast member of a D&D improv show, DM's professionally, and even wrote, produced and starred in a long running D&D inspired web series! We jump into The Strategy Stateroom with Joanna to hear how she makes her games great. Some takeaways, you say? She shares how letting go of control can lead to more dynamic and fulfilling games. Focusing on other players ideas can create a fun, chaotic snowball where everyone's on board. Listening, rather than scheming, always creates an atmosphere where incredible improvised roleplay happens. Then we go to the Heroes Stage to hear how Joanna got started down her creative path, what she's working on, and what projects of hers we can look for next. Find her at @mightyjoanna on twitter to keep up with new short films, watch her web-series Standard Action, check out the online D&D improv show The Critical Hit Show, or listen to her play in a group of rotating DM's and rotating systems on What the Quest! You've got options.
