This week I'm joined by Quinn the GM to talk about content creation! Quinn is a serial producer, having released 15 products on Dungeon Masters Guild and showing no signs of slowing down, and he takes us through a BTS of his content creation process. We talk about the difficulties of balancing homebrew, and how the concerns shift based on whether it's for your personal game or for public consumption. As a sign of fellowship, Quinn and I share stories of our own self doubt and battles with imposter syndrome, and more importantly, how to overcome them, the answer to which is delightfully simple. Closing the episode, we discuss how the homebrew 5e market has become saturated, and the ways and means to stand out from the crowd. 02:09 - Content Considerations 05:53 - Such a Thing as a "Fair Advantage" when Designing Homebrew? 14:17 - Overcoming Self-Doubt Through Constructive Criticism 18:05 - Getting Noticed and Finding Internal Value 33:22 - Balancing Spells 39:14 - Inverting Tropes & Subverting Expectations 49:00 - Surfacing in a Saturated Market Find Quinn on: Twitter: https://twitter.com/quinnthegm DMs Guild: https://www.dmsguild.com/browse.php?author=Quinn%20The%20GM Find me on: Website: https://www.thinkingcritically.co.uk Twitter: https://twitter.com/ThinkCritDnD Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/thinking_critically_dnd/ Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/ThinkingCriticallyDnD References: Inkcarnate map creator Intro Music: 'Local Forecast' by Kevin MacLeod Intermission Music: 'Chill' by Kevin MacLeod Outro Music: 'Local Forecast - Elevator' by Kevin MacLeod
