I sit down with Mike Shea, Joe Lastowski, Christopher Dudley, and Topher Kohan to talk about their recent experience with high-level combat in the new edition of D&D. We got together, created level 20 characters, and fought the Tarrasque, a death tyrant beholder, and a dracolich! They talk about the experience and breakdown the pros and cons of high-level combat in the latest edition of D&D. This podcast was recorded on November 2, 2014.

I’m expecting this guy to crash the party.

On THIS Sunday, October 19th at 7:30PM Eastern, it’s time to save the multiverse! Joe LastowskiChris DudleyTopher Kohan, and I are back to take some more abuse from the world’s greatest DM, Mike Shea, to see how high-level play shakes out in the new edition of D&D. It’s level 20 characters going toe-to-toe with some of D&D’s most legendary baddies! Currently mid-fight with a death tyrant and it’s zombie beholder minions, there’s no telling who else might show up. A demilich? An ancient red dragon? A tarrasque redux?! Anything can happen. Join us as we sacrifice four PCs to the elder gods to find out just what high-level combat is like in 5e. This will be released as a youtube video and podcast on The Tome Show’s website at a later date if you can’t be there live.

On Sunday, September 21, 2014, I got together with a few Round Tablers got together to find out just what high level play was like in the new fifth edition of Dungeons and Dragons. So Mike Shea crafted a grueling combat experience for Chris DudleyJoe LastwoskiTopher Kohan, and I. We got together to throw down with some D&D’s most iconic baddies – including the mother of all destruction, The Tarrasque.

Thanks to everyone who checked out the The Tome Show Presents The Round Table’s Tarrasque Takedown 2014: Mike Shea Out for Blood. I apologize for technical difficulties which had us start a few minutes late, but it was a blast! We didn’t get to finish our battles, since one of the things we learned about high-level combat is that it takes a while. There will be a continuation and for those who missed it, there’s a YouTube video below and it will be released as a podcast on The Tome Show’s website eventually.

We did get our butts kicked by the Tarrasque, but discussing it over email with the other players, had we made some different moves, we probably would have been victorious. I’m guessing most parties who have played together for 20 levels will find the Tarrasque a challenge, but not wholly unbeatable.

Anyway, The Tome Show Presents The Round Table’s Tarrasque Takedown 2014 Part II: Joe Lastowski, Christopher Dudley, Topher Kohan, and James Introcaso Out For Revenge: The Second One promises beholders and possibly demiliches and red dragons! More on that when we have more details!
