Heroes Rise two hundred and twenty third entry: One D&D To Rule Them All

Welcome, brave adventurers, to Heroes Rise. This is the 223rd entry into our chronicle, recorded on Sunday August 27th, and released Wednesday August 31st over at heroesrisepodcast.com.

In this week’s Adventurer’s Pack, Ryu… OK, Ryu has clearly been rifling through my stuff… AGAIN! (Beneos Battlemaps, Beneos Battletokens)

Next we check out some D&D News as we dissect and discuss the first entry into the One D&D Playtest: Character Origins

After that we take a Short Rest and head into the Archives of Candlekeep as we bring the four elements together and learn all about the Genasi; before finally heading into the Scrying Pool to see what you [all] have to say.

I’m really sceptical regarding the critical role rules. The automatic success on ability checks (lvl 1 player smashes down a castle on a nat 20) is not how we played all these years for a reason. Also, Jeremy Crawford’s remarks regarding recharge attacks being the equivalent of monster crits makes me think if they will overhaul monster recharge attacks in general and further move away from the supposed backwards compatibility.

Awesome show, listening for years now!
