Heroes Rise, third entry: Xanathar’s Guide to the Galaxy

Welcome, brave adventurers…

… to the third entry into the Heroes Rise chronicle. This episode was recorded on Saturday, 9th December 2017, and made available for download on Wednesday, 13th December 2017 at heroesrisepodcast.com

Ryu, Lennon and Ostron are back once again this week, despite Ryu having more mucus in her head than a gelatinous cube. Speaking of Ryu, first up she looks into her Adventurer’s Pack and brings us an app for players who prefer a more digital approach to their characters. Then we take a look at some D&D news as we bring you some Sage Advice and some Lost Notes from XGE.

Next, we take a Short Rest and hear some Wisdom from the Masters who tell us all about Dying Players Everywhere; before finally finishing off the show by looking into the Scrying Pool to see what you have to say.

A Short Rest: Dying Players Everywhere

mThis Week’s Community Questions

What do you think the Next Big Thing will be for 5e D&D? Is there an older adventure you’d like to see remade? A setting that’s near-and-dear to you? Do you want to see D&D 5e move into a completely different setting entirely?

I don’t wanna DIE!!!!!
Ryu, mentioned that her new players tend to lean toward the roguish type of player. I have to agree with her. When I first started playing D&D(4ed), I didn’t really know what I was doing and found myself becoming bored with a character or two and asked for a change. It’s a good way for new players to cut their teeth and experiment with the game. However, now that I’m a bit more seasoned, I definitely lead more to the knight character. I’m terrified that a character that I’ve become attached to will perish. Love your podcast!!!
