What's up with D&D Encounters Episodes?
Yeah, had to address this sooner or later. Remember when I said there would be new episodes every weekend...for reals? Turns out I'm kind of a liar.
My usual camera guy has moved up in the world and can't fit D&D Encounters in his schedule. It's a shame, but I can't blame him. His new series of jobs are pretty pimp. As for myself, the D&D Encounter's schedule at my local game store, Dueling Grounds, is a bit all over the place after the introduction of D&D Lair Assault. So I've missed a few sessions to say the least.
As for episodes, about 8 sessions have been played and not filmed. I've DM'ed the majority of them, but have missed a couple.
So far, only 3 episodes have been released on YouTube...so...crap.
There is, however, a solution!
I'm planning on filming a big recap episode, which would basically cover most of the season in its entirety, right up to the finale. Rather than include in-game footage (which we don't have) it would feature some motion-comics/animation to keep things visually interesting and dynamic. I'm also looking into having some additional voice-work done for it as well.
For the finale, I'm hosting a big climax game the first weekend in November, which will include the last 2-3 Encounters of 'Lost Crown of Neverwinter', complete with a big recap and followup of the season so far. It's a game day event, so even if you've never been involved in D&D Encounters this season, you'll still feel caught up and right at home.
If you live in the GTA area and are interested in playing, here's the info:
D&D Encounters Finale
@ Dueling Grounds
1193 Bloor Street West
On Saturday November 5th, 2011
There's also a Facebook event page if you want to sign up, here.
If you've already played most of the end of D&D Encounters: Lost Crown of Neverwinter, and can't see the point of replaying a bunch of the end, let me put your mind at ease.
The monsters featured in the final few encounters have been tweaked, rearranged, or all together replaced with others to provide a brand new experience. Plus, the finale will feature a brand new ending, as well as more integration with Neverwinter character themes. All of the above is being done to ensure this season of D&D Encounters will be remembered as YOUR season! This is your chance to really shine and prove yourself a hero.
More info to come in the coming week.
