Welcome, brave adventurers, to Heroes Rise. This is the 252nd and final entry into our chronicle, recorded on Saturday, November 18th, 2023, and released Wednesday, November 22nd, 2023 over at heroesrisepodcast.com.
Alas, after 252 episodes, our campaign is coming to an end, but we’ll always be around to lend you a helping hand. With over 250 episodes and almost as many Adventurer’s Pack picks and Rests both Short and Long, we know that we’ve created a wealth of information that’s not only applicable to D&D 5e, but to TTRPGs as a whole. Over the coming weeks, we will be reshuffling the website to place a focus on the written content, along with a full audio archive, both on the current RSS feeds as well as a public repository so future access to the existing show catalogue is guaranteed. Also, Lennon and Mikey will have copies of everything (seriously, they treat external hard drives like Ryu treats browser tabs), so if you’re ever after something in particular you can always drop us a message and we’ll be happy to help!
Also, the Heroes Rise Discord server won’t be going anywhere! We love the community we’ve built here, and although the show will be gone, this band of brave adventurers will march on! Though, naturally, there will be a couple of changes. Firstly, everyone who was a Patron will get an exclusive Moneylender role, as a small way of saying thanks for your support over the years. The Super Secret Patron Lounge will become read-only, and it’ll still only be accessible to those who were Moneylenders, because we recognise the Eldritch Pacts we’ve made. Secondly, the show staff will be given the role of Moderators, because someone’s gotta stop the Pungeon from leaking.
But there’s still one last adventure to go, so in this week’s Adventurer’s Pack, we take a look back at some of our favourite tools from the past six years:
Next we check out some D&D News as we take a look at the latest hardcover release, The Book of Many Things
And finally, we head on over to the Scrying Pool to see what you have to say.
Our adventure has now ended, and we’ve hung up our robes and wizard hats to enjoy our retirement on the Sword Coast, running a tavern where a fresh band of adventurers may meet and start quests of their own. We’re still around on Discord, and you should come and join the Heroes Rise community at http://discord.heroesrisepodcast.com
