Heroes Rise, one hundred seventy-first entry: Party People

Welcome, brave adventurers…

… to the one hundred seventy-first entry into our chronicle, recorded on Saturday, June 26th, and released Wednesday, June 30th, over at

In this week’s Adventurer’s Pack, Ostron takes us on a date. There’s no D&D News this week, so we’re going to be gathering around the firelight for some Dissonant Whispers as we discuss party composition.

After that we take a Short Rest and head into the Gnomish Workshop because we need heals, so where’s the … druid?; before finally heading over to the Scrying Pool to see what you have to say.


A Short Rest: Gnomish Workshop: Need Heals, where’s the … Druid?

This Week’s Community Questions
What’s your opinion on the so- called “holy trinity” in parties? Is it necessary in some cases, or can it be totally tossed out on a whim?
Have you ever played with a single-class party? What class was everyone playing? How did it work?

    What is “DPS” (as in “DPS, Tank, and Cleric”)?
