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.

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!

A new double-sized episode of my podcast, The Round Table, is up on The Tome Show’s site.

I sits down with Joe LastowskiTopher KohanMike Shea, and Chris Dudley to dish on the Tarrasque preview and the first version of the  DM Basic Rules free pdf. This podcast was recorded on August 24, 2014. This is where the idea for The Round Table Presents The Round Table’s Tarrasque Takedown 2014: Mike Shea Out for Blood was born.

Time to take this guy on!

Do you want to fight the Tarrasque?

Rawr!

I definitely do and I’m gonna.

On next Monday’s Round Table podcast features Mike Shea, Topher Kohan, Joe Lastowski, Chris Dudley, and me talking about the Tarrasque preview tweeted out by Morrus of EN World (among other topics). During this podcast we realized that we don’t really know how high-level play works out in the brand spanking new fifth edition of Dungeons and Dragons, so we decided to do something about it.

On Sunday, September 21st at 7:30PM Eastern, Mike will run Topher, Joe, Chris, and me through a series of ridiculous high-level encounters. We’re going to live broadcast it on Google+ Hangouts and on YouTube, so check out those links if you want to watch. We’ve got Facebook and Google+ events set up as well. If you’re not around to watch us try to kick some major monster but, you can watch later on YouTube or look forward to the release of the audio in podcast format on The Tome Show’s website.

I promise we’ll be entertaining as we run through our first high-level fifth edition session together. Mike has promised to spill plenty of PC blood as we fight our way through epic beasts culminating in a battle with the Tarrasque itself! So come one, come all to The Tome Show Presents The Round Table’s Tarrasque Takedown. I can’t wait!

UPDATE: Check out the first session. Part II coming soon!
