Heroes Rise, one hundred second entry: The Best Defence Is A Good Offence

Welcome, brave adventurers…

… to the one hundred second entry into our chronicle, recorded on Saturday December 28th, and released Wednesday January 1st over at heroesrisepodcast.com.

In this week’s Adventurer’s Pack, Ryu shows us that even kids can become heroes! Next we check out some D&D News as we uncover:

  • Absolutely diddly squat

After that we take a Short Rest and hear some Wisdom of the Masters on Resistances, Vulnerabilities and monsters; before finally heading over to the Scrying Pool to see what you have to say.


2020 Predictions


  • More MTG crossovers
  • Dragonlance


  • Manual of Planes type book (à la MToF/XGtE), possibly including psionics
  • Dark Sun


  • Of course a Draconomicon! Ok, just kidding.
  • More mixed media crossovers
