From the author of The Monsters Know What They’re Doing comes an introduction to combat tactics for Dungeons & Dragons players.
On the heels of The Monsters Know What They’re Doing—a compilation of villainous battle plans for Dungeon Masters based on the author’s popular blog—Live to Tell the Tale evens the score, providing beginning and intermediate D&D players the tools they need to fight back. Examining combat roles, class features, party composition, positioning, debilitating conditions, attacking combinations, action economy, and the ever-important consideration of the best ways to run away, Live to Tell the Tale will help you get the most out of your character’s abilities.
