In the debut of our narrated, short-fiction series, Ian relays the origins of one of his very first characters, Eld. A half-elf born in a zealous high-elven society, Eld is shunned for his human lineage and forced to undergo grueling hardship in order to become "worthy" of his elven blood. But one day, something happens that will change his life forever... will he finally break free of his shackles? 

In this episode of Behind the Screens, we talk to David, AKA the Roaming Gnoll on Roll20, who walks us through his DMing experience and the experience he tries to craft at his Table. Ian personally got to experience this through his module, Harpy Death Pit, which you can find on Roll20 today! 

"Own your mistakes so your mistakes don't own you."
 
Here we dive deep into building trust and clear resources at the table, and the beautiful growth that trying new things, no matter how uncomfortable, can bring us.
