Heroes Rise, seventy-third entry: Descent Into Madness

Welcome, brave adventurers…

… to the seventy-third entry into our chronicle, recorded on Saturday May 18th, and released Wednesday May 22nd over at

This week we’re foregoing Adventurer’s Pack because D&D live is flooding us with news. So far, we have:

  • New Rick and Morty D&D tie-in content
  • An expansion to the dungeon mayhem card game
  • New young adventurer’s guides
  • The new D&D Essentials starter expansion
  • And the new adventure module: Baldur’s gate – Descent into Avernus

After that, I’m going to do my best to avoid the Gnomish Workshop, because I suspect certain people want to finish off a discussion on Critical Hitting, but I’ll be over in the Scrying Pool to see what you all have to say.
