GUEST: HENRY LOPEZ OF PARADIGM CONCEPTS

Henry Lopez is the lead writer and line developer for Paradigm Concepts and is the creator of Arcanis: The World of Shattered Empires, Witch Hunter: The Invisible World, and Rotted Capes.

FREE Arcanis Primer on RPG Now:
http://www.rpgnow.com/product/194097/Arcanis-5E-Primer

From the Arcanis Wikipedia page:
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Arcanis

Arcanis was originally a campaign setting for the Dungeons & Dragons game, created by Henry Lopez and supported by Paradigm Concepts. It is also the name of the fictional world where the setting takes place. The setting was launched in 2001 and is known for its odd twists on the fantasy genre, as well as its wide member approval and community-based design and construction. Unlike many other fantasy roleplaying games, which focus primarily on tactical combat, the Arcanis campaigns focus on moral ambiguity and politics.

From the Arcanis 5E Kickstarter :
https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/1418216834/arcanis-5e-rpg/description:

The Arcanis 5E Core Book is a 400+ page book, fully compatible with the latest edition of the world’s most popular fantasy RPG. It will be published with high production values and lavishly illustrated by some of the industry’s most talented artists.

Arcanis first debuted in 2001 as a d20 compatible world setting and campaign. Now it’s time to introduce this award-winning setting to a new generation of players, as well as former fans, with a brand new edition.

Shane’s review of Tales from the Yawning Portal
http://shaneplays.com/dnd-tales-from-the-yawning-portal-review/

GUEST: D&D’s MIKE MEARLS

D&D lead Mike Mearls joins to discuss the surprising success of 5th Edition and the newest D&D book, Tales from the Yawning Portal!

From http://dnd.wizards.com/products/tabletop-games/rpg-products/tales-yawning-portal:

When the shadows grow long in Waterdeep and the fireplace in the taproom of the Yawning Portal dims to a deep crimson glow, adventurers from across the Forgotten Realms, and even from other worlds, spin tales and spread rumors of dark dungeons and lost treasures. Some of the yarns overheard by Durnan, the barkeep of the Yawning Portal, are inspired by places and events in far-flung lands from across the D&D multiverse, and these tales have been collected into a single volume.

Within this tome are seven of the most compelling dungeons from the 40+ year history of Dungeons & Dragons. Some are classics that have hosted an untold number of adventurers, while others are some of the most popular adventures ever printed.

TOPIC: NINTENDO SWITCH

Nintendo hit a home run with the Wii and then barely got to first base with the Wii U. They’ve proven they’re not afraid to take risks and their latest console, the Switch, is further proof of that. Designed as both a home console AND a portable console, have they pushed the concept of what console gaming is further yet again or is it back to the drawing board?

Neal Adams is a legend in the comics industry and his art has graced the outside and inside of countless comics. He has had an impact on many other artists with his amazing style as well as fighting for the rights of artists in the industry.

Listen in as Neal tells us of the fascinating idea of the Growing Earth and why it’s important!
