Sorry for the lack of notice, but imma be super busy and today is the only time I can manage a livestream! Come join me and you can ask me questions and such.. it might even be fun! but probs not, let’s be honest.
So I’m going to start this at 9 pm sharp (eastern standard time), on younow. It’ll end around 11 ish.
I received my advance copy of @dndwizards’s new book Tales from the Yawning Portal not quite a week ago. If you haven’t heard of this book here’s the gist of it:
TftYP is a collection of seven ‘classic’ dungeon adventures from D&D editions past, all updated with fifth edition rules. In this book you get…
Against the Giants (AD&D)
Dead in Thay (D&D Next)
Forge of Fury (D&D 3e)
Hidden Shrine of Tamoachan (AD&D)
The Sunless Citadel (D&D 3e)
Tomb of Horrors (AD&D)
White Plume Mountain (AD&D)
All of the maps and layout have been updated to make them easier on the eyes, while their traps, monsters, structure, and challenges remains largely unchanged. TftYP is a ‘best of’ book, rather than a remake or reboot of these adventures.
If you’re a millennial who got into D&D through things like Acquisitions Inc, The Adventure Zone, or Critical Role, my take on this book is gonna be of interest to you…because this book might be specifically FOR YOU.
-Virgil’s name does come from “vigilant”
-Thomas is also aware Virgil is a Roman poet
-Thomas and Joan wanted to do the pathos/logos/ethos thing, but neither Roman or Virgil really fit ethos
-They almost had Virgil be the other side of pathos, which according to them is basically anxiety
-Roman’s name did come from romance/romanticism/Rome/medieval knight Era
-Joan has been helping write the Sanders Side script since Valentine’s Day
-THERE ARE OTHER SIDES
-They might do a video about the sides and which Hogwarts Houses they are, they specifically mentioned getting the redeeming Anxiety arc out of the way first before they did that
-Joan came up with Logan’s line that went along the lines of “it’s better for society to be anxious than complacent”
-They both very carefully left out any information about “the others” except that other sides exist
-Thomas likes the idea of dying his eyebrows in a gradient of black to purple, to match his future purple hair
-They might do a Halloween Sanders sides video where the sides are in costumes and more of Virgil’s room
-They didn’t say anything about seeing the others rooms though :(
If any of you also saw the Livestream and can remember more facts, feel free to add on!
Toriumi: March is the month that [Maeno’s character] Haru is in charge of, right? Maeno: Yes, it’s March. And if it’s March then it’s KENN-san’s birthday. Happy birthday to you! *Maeno, Toriumi, and staff all clapping* Toriumi: It’s today, isn’t it? Maeno: *immediately* It’s today. I made sure to send him a LINE message congratulating [KENN on his birthday] as soon as the date changed.
