Learn to Play the New Dune RPG with this Mini-Series!

The cast of the new Dune learn-to-play mini-series. Tuesdays at 5:30 Pacific, starting July 6th.

Want to learn how to play the new Dune RPG by Modiphius Entertainment? Of course you do! I am part of a mini-series teaching just how to do that. The first episode was released June 6th. Catch each episode Tuesdays at 5:30 PM Pacific (8:30 PM Eastern)!

Episode 1, Creating Your House:
Episode 2, Character Creation:
Episode 3, We land on Dune and it’s a competition:
Episode 4, Sabotage and Thievery:
Episode 5: Tune in this Tuesday!

Dune is one of my favorite science-fantasy-fiction novels of all time (and a superb series of books). It is also a classic movie, an upcoming TV series, several board games, and so much more.

Starting June 6th, this includes a weekly learn-to-play stream mini-series that will teach you the game and help you learn about the amazing setting. Join us each Tuesday as the cast (shown above) learns the game and how to make the most of the setting. And, about that cast…

Richard Malena-Webber is an amazing DM and one of the hosts of the Owlbear Soup show, covering D&D and RPGs. If you have seen some of my past streams, you might have seen the awesome job Rich did DMing a really fun Fantasy AGE game!

His co-host for Owlbear Soup is Justin Turner, an incredible player (and DM). Justin and I met playing D&D organized play and have taken turns running campaigns for one another.

Aliza Pearl is an incredible actress and streamer! I first met her when she signed up to play at one of my Spanish-language D&D games. We had a fantastic time in Icewind Dale, and now I’m excited to play together in a desert world! She is also my favorite Klingon.

This will be my first time playing with Bee Zelda and Cohen Edenfield. Both are accomplished creators and streamers and I’m really excited to see how all of us will approach this game.  

You can find information on the Dune RPG on the Modiphius site. It’s an excellent game using a 2d20 system.

Our first session (Tuesday July 6th) was all about introducing the game and creating our House! The second episode will focus on character creation. Part of the second episode and future episodes will focus on gameplay.

We greatly appreciate your support. Come join in the fun, and tell your friends! The spice? Oh, it will flow. Rest assured.

    This is perfect! My spouse and I are experienced 5e players and we are also huge fans of Dune. We recently purchased the new Dune RPG book from Modiphius but we feel like we need someone to give us a jumpstart into the game. This couldn’t have come at a better time. Thanks so much!

      I’m so glad to hear this! My wife and I, and my parents, have really enjoyed reading and rereading the books. I love Rich as GM, and as a teacher. Thanks again!
