Heroes Rise, two hundred and thirteenth entry: Huge… Barbarians

Heroes Rise, two hundred and thirteenth entry: Huge… Barbarians

Welcome, brave adventurers, to Heroes Rise. This is the 213th entry into our chronicle, recorded on Saturday, June 4th, and released Wednesday, June 8th over at heroesrisepodcast.com.

Unfortunately Lennon was taking a trip this week and decided trying to ride the shambling mound would be faster than walking. That was a…slight…miscalculation. RaeRae’s stepping in to help while we figure out what piece of landscape Lennon’s a part of now.

This week we’re going to wander into the Market of Minauros to see what mysterious and magical items have filtered up for sale.  

Next we check out some D&D News as we take a look at the latest Unearthed Arcana: Giant Options

Speaking of giants, after that we take a Short Rest and dig up some Unearthed Mundana all about their history; before finally heading into the Scrying Pool to see what you [all] have to say.

Community Questions

  • What’s your take on the new subclasses? Is the Path of the Giant Barbarian a gateway to broken character creation? Is the Druid everything you want from a dinosaur summoner? Is the Runecrafter subclass attached to the wrong class?
  • And how about the new feats? Are the level-gated options a worrying throwback to 3.5, or are we reading too much into it?
