Welcome, brave adventurers, to Heroes Rise!
This is the 200th entry into our chronicle, recorded live at twitch.tv/heroesrisednd on Saturday, February 12th, and released Wednesday, February 16th over at heroesrisepodcast.com.
In this week’s Adventurer’s Pack, Ryu shows us how she handles conflict in games… this can’t be good…
Next we check out some D&D News as we uncover:
- Some details from the Hasbro Earning’s Call and a touch of NFT controversy
- A new line of minis (1, 2) from WizKids partnership with Death Saves
- And some more info on the Dark Souls RPG, this time their take on armor, items, weapons and how this ties in to subclassing
After that we dig up some Unearthed Mundana and discuss Unicorns; before finally heading over to the Scrying Pool to see what you [all] have to say.

We’re letting you all see behind the scenes, with the recording of Episode 200 live! There’ll also be a few extra faces (and voices), and you’ll get to see how much polishing the Audio Alchemists need to do (hint: it’s a lot)

- How great are we, huh? What was your favorite episode 200 segment?
- What do you make of the NFT rigamarole? Do you think WoTC is actually going to do something with them, or was this just them making sure to legally protect their intellectual property?
- What do you think about powers associated with equipment and weapons? Would you like to see more of that in 5e, or is it introducing too much complexity and bookkeeping?
