Where it all began...

Hey everybody, Matt Colville here!

In 2016 I started my "Running the Game" video series to show others that being a dungeon master is fun and... it's not that hard! With the community's incredible support of our first Kickstarter, I was able to start MCDM Productions in 2018 and now 7 of my friends and I get to spend our days making dope stuff! So far we've produced Strongholds & Followers, Kingdoms & Warfare, a monthly digital magazine called ARCADIA, tabletop minis, and new 5e character classes like the Beastheart and Illrigger—and more is on the way!

Our mission still remains the same, though, which is to turn you from someone who wants to play TRPGs into someone who wants to run them. "Running the Game" has over 100 episodes on how to do just that, so what are you waiting for?

It's time to roll bones and push lead!
