In the dynamic universe of Dungeons & Dragons (D&D), the Dungeon Master (DM) is the omnipotent force, the storyteller, the world builder, and the adjudicator. But what happens when the puppeteer becomes the puppet? When the DM steps out from behind the screen and takes on the role of a player?This exciting role reversal is precisely what transpired when the Dungeon Master of Roll Britannia, a renowned D&D podcast; made a rare appearance as a player in a special one-shot game.
