Heroes Rise, eighty-seventh entry: Magical Mister Mephistopheles

Welcome, brave adventurers…

… to the eighty-seventh entry into our chronicle, recorded on Saturday August 31st, and released Wednesday September 4th over at heroesrisepodcast.com.

In this week’s Adventurer’s Pack, Ryu shows us her favourite Friendly Remote? Gaming Store! Next we check out some D&D News as we uncover:

  • The latest Young Adventurer’s Guide
  • D&D Beyond’s new spoiler tags
  • And the three confirmed subclasses for the Artificer

After that we’ll take a Short Rest and head to the Archives of Candlekeep for a primer on the Nine Hells, before finally heading over to the Scrying Pool to see what you have to say.

My local gaming store, Game On in Warwick RI, is a great store with a friendly staff and on hands owner. They have a wonderful following and the community is second to none. I can’t say enough good things about them.
I really like the YAG’s. They are what you would receive in school or hear about the creatures. It is easier for me, the DM, to make each creature unique and tweak their abilities. Having the players know the exact stats of a creature is never a good thing. There should be a sense of mystery and dread when fighting a creature, not “Oh it only has 65 HP and it’s AC is 15. No problem.”
I started with 1st edition and really liked the early days of 3.5 I give my players carte blanche when creating characters as long as they can weave it into a good background. Number crunching isn’t for me and takes away from the spirit of the game…IMHO.
