We’re kicking off all-new Blizzard Watch D&D campaign — join us on Saturday to listen live!
The new year means Team Blizzard Watch is kicking off a new D&D campaign! The game starts tomorrow, Saturday, January 16, at 2:30PM Central. You can join us live on Twitch at game time, or catch up with the podcast later. It’s sure to be a good time.
Joe Perez be DMing a game set in Otherweald, a nexus point that bridges many realms. We’ll be starting our adventures in the city of High Gate, the major trading hub for the Free Lands, which has one of the region’s only docks that caters to land, sea, and air. As one of the largest cities in the region, High Gate is a cultural hub for religion and the arts. And it’s the perfect place for a mismatched crew of adventurers to run into each other.
Our party is mostly playing subclasses from the new Tasha’s Cauldron of Everything sourcebook, which is full of the weird and the wonderful. Our cast includes:
- Mairsy Dotes (played by Deb), a Rock Gnome Wizard with some homebrew customizations making her an Illusionist Tinker. Mairsy loves to travel mainly because you never know what you’re going to find which will be useful later. Mairsy is an illusionist who’s fond of anything mechanical, but she’s currently trying to learn potions, because mixing is just like tinkering with (maybe) fewer explosions.
- Diener (played by Andrew), an Air Genasi Warlock (Genie Patron). Diener was created by the Primordials to serve the mortal races. A loyal servant, he obeys the command of his master, which is whoever holds the magic lamp. He remains in their service until he grants them their one true Wish. The one that bends all of reality. There’s just one problem — vast amounts of his magic have vanished.
- Mae hi’n llew (played by Matt), a Leonin Fighter (Rune Knight). Mae is a member of a pride named the Stelciwr Cra that patrols the Northern Reaches between Jotunberg and the Hidden Grove. A few years ago, she and her brother Gormod both decided to leave the pride and find their own paths out in the world as solitary Leonin. Mae is fun-loving, adventurous, and always willing to jump in to help people who look like they need it. She’s a big, burly Leonin who can grow to sixteen feet tall and uses a huge scythe as her weapon of choice.
- Rahn (played by Liz), a Changeling Rogue (Phantom). Rahn has spent her life killing in service of the death goddess Lilith, calling on the souls of the dead to aid her. But Rahn had begun to doubt, and when she was sent to assassinate the high priest of Hel, he convinced her to abandon Lilith’s cult. Now she’s learning to live a normal (or mostly normal) life, under no one’s orders but her own — not an easy feat for a former cult assassin.
In a future session, Cory and Anne will be joining the game. While I don’t know what Anne will play, Cory sent this hint as to his character’s identity. I am eager to hear your guesses.
For those of you who want to know what happens in our other campaign, which ended on a cliffhanger, don’t fear! We’ll be continuing that game in the future — we’re just taking a break for now to do something new and let Matt enjoy playing rather than DMing. If you haven’t listened, you can catch up on the campaign while you wait for this weekend’s game.
But whether you were a fan of the old series or not, please join us on Saturday at 2:30PM Central on Twitch for our new campaign kick-off! I hope to see you (virtually) there.
