Heroes Rise, twenty-sixth entry: We’ve Updated Our Privacy Policy

Welcome, brave adventurers…

… to the twentieth entry into the Heroes Rise chronicle. This episode was recorded on Saturday, 26th May 2018, and made available for download on Wednesday, 30th May 2018 at heroesrisepodcast.com

Before Ostron disappeared, he did stop to discuss Lennon’s favorite virtual tabletop tool. Next we check out some D&D News as we cover:

  • The latest videos from D&D Beyond highlighting some pretty disgusting creatures in Tome of Foes
  • And the recent Fireside Chat and upcoming Stream of Many Eyes with Nathan Stewart and Kate Welch

After that we take a Short Rest and prepare for a massive battle, before finally looking into the scrying pool to see what you have to say.

Wise adventurer-hosts, do y’all ever feel overwhelmed by the D&D/WotC wall of promotional sound? I mean, I know that that “news” is a big part of your podcast, but… it’s weird. I feel like I’m losing my appetite for the relentless waves of new stuff (just sharing a thought – not at all a suggestion for any change of format).

Clearly, the company is working with a business model of making new things to sell and having multi-day online events to promote it all (note: I’m not cynical about creative folks making good money for their imaginative ideas)… but I feel like a stick in the mud due to my personal desire to focus on working with the abundance of things that are already out there.

I don’t want to turn into a grumpy old man about D&D, but I definitely find myself more interested in using older, under-appreciated monsters better rather than in getting all caught up in use cases for shiny new monsters. No. Not the flumph.

I realize this question/comment is a bit meta, but I’m curious to know your thoughts. Usual Marty-kidding aside, I love the podcast and, having listened since your first entry in the chronicle, I’ve grown quite fond of you all over these weeks. I respect your opinions, even – and in some cases especially – the ones with which I disagree.

…and as someone working in digital marketing, I particularly appreciated the GDPR joke in the episode name.


Okay, so I’m 2 episodes behind. I wanted to say thank you to Lennon for the nice overview of Roll20. Very complete. Feel free to revisit Roll20 and go into more depth any time. For example, one stumbling block I had was creating custom maps for Roll20. Keep up the great podcast!
