Last week during D&D Live we learned that one of the upcoming D&D projects is Fizban's Treasury of Dragons, a sourcebook that's all about the second, and arguably cooler, part of the game's name.
Okay, so Critical Role is the big dog of RPG streams.
So, you want to watch some streamed D&D or other tabletop RPG action, but you're of course already watching Critical Role because it is the ten thousand ton gorilla amongst streamed tabletop games.
Once a month, the Blizzard Watch crew gets together to play D&D, and in our last session we continued our adventure in the world of Otherweald with DM Joe Perez.
This July 16 and 17, you will be able to watch G4 and Wizards of the Coast's D&D Live 2021. In previous years, D&D Live has been a kind of showcase, where new releases were teased, celebrity guests and the folks who make Dungeons and Dragons came together to play the game and let us watch them play it, and a good time was had by all.
At D&D Live 2021, we learned about the next sourcebook for 5th Edition: Fizban's Treasury of Dragons. Shortly before the event, Fizban's Treasury of Dragons showed up on both Amazon and D&D Beyond, so I'm comfortable saying that's what we're talking about in the first D&D Live panel of the day.
I've mentioned before that it's okay to not always know all the rules when running an RPG.
I once spent three months painstakingly kludging rules together for 5th Edition Dungeons and Dragons so that my friends could play in a game that was more like a fantasy anime like The Vision of Escaflowne, only to realize I was breaking my back to do something Exalted already did, but better.
Most Dungeons and Dragons campaigns, especially in fifth edition, end around level 10.
Last month's TTRPG stream was a special Mass Effect-themed one shot game, but now Joltin' Joe Perez is back to DM us through another installment of his Otherweald campaign, and the gang will set out from their current location in the desert towards the jungle location of the ancient temple of Lilith to reclaim a jeweled chalice sacred to Hela, goddess of death.
