Welcome to the inaugural episode of the Bonus Action podcast. This show is about the rules of the 5th edition of Dungeons and Dragons and we plan to explore those rules one by one. In this episode Sam and James discuss the Advantage/Disadvantage mechanic. You can find an explanation of this rule in the Basic D&D PDF on page 57 or in the 5e D&D Player’s Handbook on page 173.
