Episode 6

Robert Hartley from Viva La Dirt League

Published on: 16th February, 2022

Robert has learned a lot about reigning in and redirecting chaos as the DM for Viva La Dirt League's "NPC D&D" game. He's been running games for a few years, and a connection got him in touch with the VLDL crew which has helped him make D&D his full time gig!

Robert streams frequently throughout the week, homebrewing content, reading supplements and books about the game, and breaking down his latest session with the VLDL team. He also wrote and directed the "D&D Logic" YouTube series that makes fun of some of the goofier parts of the game.
