Join us on Saturday, February 12, for the first episode of our Into The Weirs D&D campaign

As a DM, one of the most terrifying and exhilarating things to do is to start a new Dungeons and Dragons campaign, which is exactly what we’re doing this Saturday with Into The Weirs, with both myself and Joe Perez sharing DM duties and co-playing a unique character. After the end of our Riatan campaign — and if you’re curious, you can catch all of the older episodes here — the new campaign will be a completely clean slate, with fresh characters, new players, and a new, unique world of our own creation. If you missed our session zero, it’s available to listen to as well, and I encourage you to do so because listening to the players bounce ideas off of each other is really fun.

So what is Into The Weirs all about? Unlike the Riatan game, which was a one shot that kind of mutated, this is a game we’re designing from the start to be an extended campaign. We’ve asked each of the players — Liz Harper, Anne Stickney, Andrew Powers, and of course Joe and myself — to come up with character backstories and come up with a way to lace them together, to have each of the characters relate in some way back to one another to justify how and why they started hanging out together, and they’ve all given us fuel for new stories down the road. The Weirs themselves are both a series of dams across the River Danae and the town that has sprung up around them. It’s a growing community, on the cusp of becoming a big city with the usual growing pains, weird monsters, strange coincidences, and unlikely happenings you expect from your usual D&D experience.

How is the session going to start? What characters are the players playing? Well, let’s leave some mysteries for the session.

So this Saturday, February 12 we’ll have our first official session of Into The Weirs, kicking off the campaign. We’re streaming it to the Blizzard Watch Twitch channel starting at 4:30 p.m. Central time, and then it will of course be available for listeners as a recording later, in case you can’t make the livestream.
