Heroes Rise, one hundred twenty-third entry: Icewind Fail

Welcome, brave adventurers…

… to the one hundred twenty-third entry into our chronicle, recorded on Saturday June 13th, and released Wednesday June 17th over at

In this week’s Adventurer’s Pack, Ryu gets a little bit combative. Next we check out some D&D news as we uncover:

  • The latest celebrity lineup for D&D Live 2020
  • The latest release hitting D&D Beyond, this time not from Wizards of the Coast
  • And what is potentially a leak of the next D&D product, courtesy of a D&D Beyond screw-up

After that we take a Short Rest and hear some Wisdom of the Masters on interpreting wishes for misery and pain; before finally heading over to the Scrying Pool to see what you have to say. 


A Short Rest:Wisdom of the Masters: Interpreting Wishes for Pain & Misery

This Week’s Community Questions
Do you think the leak of the Icewind Dale resource was intentional, or did someone at D&D Beyond actually drop the ball? Or is it a complete red herring and we’re not getting that resource at all?
What do you think it will be like for the Game of Thrones’ stars when they play D&D?
And is Legends of Runeterra a good precedent where D&D Beyond will be actively adding in free content of high quality, or is it another sign that 5th edition will continue to be flooded with product tie-ins and marketing material?
