Heroes Rise two hundred and thirty second entry: The Tavern Tales

Heroes Rise two hundred and thirty second entry: The Tavern Tales

Welcome, brave adventurers, to Heroes Rise. This is the 232nd entry into our chronicle, recorded on Saturday, January 7th, 2023, and released Wednesday, January 11th, 2023 over at heroesrisepodcast.com.

Unfortunately Ostron can’t join us this week. According to his vacation request he has to, quote “attend a wild party”… Wait, that can’t be right… Maybe he meant a “wild-magic party”? That still doesn’t seem right… Anyway, playing the role of “guy who ruins everyone’s fun” tonight is Tony from our sister-show, Guard Frequency.

In this week’s Adventurer’s Pack, Ryu shows us a new (Android) app she’s chatting with.

Next we check out some D&D News as we take a look at the OneD&D Cleric and Species Playtest, and since there’s a lawyer on the show we thought it would be a waste to not at least touch on the OGL 1.1 controversy. Well, Tony thought it would be a waste, anyway…

After that we’ll take a Short Rest and hear some Wisdom of the Masters on why everybody’s getting a gun (it’s not related to having a lawyer on the show, we promise); before finally heading into the Scrying Pool to see what you have to say.

Community Questions

  • Will you be using AI to seed your game ideas? What about generating an entire campaign?
  • What’s your take on the OGL debacle? Will the Twitter account “D&D Advice from a Six Year Old” need to start paying royalties to Wizards?
  • We’ve all heard the legend of Tucker’s Kobolds (and if you haven’t, seriously, Google it), but what about your campaigns? When did the enemies behave a little *too* intelligently? Did you ever have masterminds acting like mindless zombies?
