Heroes Rise, one hundred third entry: Critically Rolling

Heroes Rise, one hundred third entry: Critically Rolling

Welcome, brave adventurers…

… to the one hundred third entry into our chronicle, recorded on January 11th, and released Wednesday January 15th over at heroesrisepodcast.com.

In this week’s Adventurer’s Pack, Lennon forgets all about maps as he embraces the true beauty of tabletop RPGs: Rollable Tables! Next we check out some D&D News as we uncover:

  • What you can find in Laerel Silverhand’s Explorer’s Kit
  • D&D Beyond’s latest digital release, the Sapphire Dragon from the Anniversary Dice Set
  • And everything we know about the latest sourcebook, the Explorer’s Guide to Wildemount

After that we take a Short Rest and dig up some Unearthed Mundana for an introduction to colour theory to help with painting your miniatures; before finally heading over to the Scrying Pool to see what you have to say.


A Short Rest: Unearthed Mundana: Painting Your Miniatures – Introduction to Colour Theory

This Week’s Community Questions
You’ve heard our thoughts on it, what’s your take? Is the Explorer’s Guide to Wildemount going to be the breakout hit of 5th edition, or will it simply enjoy the moderate success of releases like Ravnica or Acquisitions Incorporated?
Specifically, dunamancy: is it about time we had subclasses dedicated to bending the fundamental forces of the universe, or have Wizards of the Coast underestimated the gravity of the situation? Yes, we’re asking this one just to make the puns 😉
What about the smaller additions to Wizards’ collections? Are you planning to pick up the explorer’s set? Will the sapphire dragon be sitting in your menagerie?
