What is DM's Deep Dive?

The DM’s Deep Dive with Mike Shea is your monthly master class in dungeon mastering from veteran game designer and DM, Mike Shea of Sly Flourish. Each episode, Mike and a guest DM expert take a single topic of interest to dungeon masters and dig deep, covering lost nuances and digging for hidden gems we might all have missed.
