I’ve been checking out D&D beyond to make my new character and, apart from the fact they monetise everything (which is understandable but annoying when you’ve bought a physical book and then either have to rebuy it digitally or buy little chunks of it), it’s pretty damn good. The pathfinder game I’ve been playing for two years was always a bit of a hassle to track spells and items and stuff using a clunky excel spreadsheet, but D&D beyond seems genuinely excellent.

My DM has bought an awful lot of stuff in there which has meant we’ve had access to it all through linking our characters to campaigns. 
 

We use the Avrae bot in discord and all rolls and checks are done through the webpage which all syncs. 
 

Have only played remotely since lockdown but I would really struggle I think doing IRL now.

The Lost Odyssey: Last Light Table

Veteran daredevils known for perfecting the science of swashbuckling, Jack Black, Reggie Watts, Lauren Lapkus, Kevin Smith, Jason Mewes, and actress, comedian, and chaotic good best-selling author Tiffany Haddish will be led by stern Dungeon Master Kate Welch in a very serious investigation into dragons, krakens and sea giant queens.

Midnight Sunday UK

The Flubbybonks and Guzzleshucks Table

Popular streamers DrLupo and Negaoryx will join comedian Ify Nwadiwe and G4 cast members Kevin Pereira, Adam Sessler, and Fiona Nova for The Flubbybonks and Guzzleshucks Table, a title we landed on after running “Pereira and Sessler” through a gnomish wizard name generator. Leading the table on its adventure is Dungeon Master Amy Vorpahl, a tabletop pro and real-life bard in the key of D&D. Amy also serves as the head writer for D&D Live 2021.

3am Sunday UK

Beadle & Grimm’s Faster, Purple Worm! Kill! Kill! Table

D&D veterans B. Dave Walters, Xander Jeanneret, Deborah Ann Woll, and Seth Green will improvise their way through a doomed campaign to hunt a massive monster with a challenge rating the size of the moon. Hosted by Bill Rehor and run by DM Jon Ciccolini, both from Beadle & Grimm’s, this one-hour session is unlikely to roll critical hits but sure to score critical laughs (unfortunately the monster has maxed comedy resistance).

Oooh now that sounds interesting - a different sort of environment hopefully giving us some new areas of D&D to explore.

Some of those d&d groups could be fun - they’ve got some great talent. I’m pretty sure Kevin Smith had never played D&D prior to being on Relics and Rarities with Deborah Ann Will (great show btw) so cool to see he got the bug!
