NeverQuest: Pitfights and Perils!
Come and join NeverQuest, a weekly D&D campaign where heroes are definitely not zeros. This week: Pitfights and a new friend!
NeverQuest is a weekly celebration of the fact that All Your Base are Belong to Us is now old enough to drive a car. That’s right friends. In the days before Memes were Memes, this hoary beast loomed over the horizon, its tendrils ensconced firmly within our cultural landscape. And since it has been 16 years since it first incepted its way into our minds, the memetic landscape has changed–possibly owing to the churning of its roots. One day, when it is ready, something will hatch. It will be perfect. It will be beautiful. It will be the end of everything.
Until that day, we celebrate our freedom from memetic repetition by engaging in the greatest human activity ever created, playing Dungeons and Dragons. Each week, our batch of craft-brewed adventurers sallies forth and does their best to redefine people’s expectations of what it means to be a hero.
This week, our heroes stop a bar fight, start a pit fight and a riot, all in one fell swoop. They escape separately, proving that you should always split the party up–and each in their own way makes some new friends. Then the gang gets back together for a little bit of rest and relaxation and a hot bath. Find out more on this week’s NeverQuest!
Or join us live every Monday at 5:30pm CST as we stream the campaign on Twitch. We’re always glad to have people in the audience. New to NeverQuest? Here’s a handy rundown for you:
Our heroes are:
Barnabus Annabelle Goodfellow Hawthorne Merriweather Jr., etc. aka Bags. – A Goliath Wizard raised by Gnomes, currently a pit fighting champion known as ‘The Gravedigger.’
Ravener Scheppen – A Gnome Ranger (presumably also raised by gnomes) who has befriended a “flying squirrel” that is almost certainly a griffon.
Alamar Vel Crow – A Half-Elf Warlock who traded his soul in order to be really good at card tricks, currently possesses a magical artifact of immense power.
Peren Greycastle – A Half-Elf Bard who is a pacifist, but incredibly skilled at looking out for Peren Greycastle.
And this week they are joined by
Aleta – A Human Cleric of Knowledge who just wants to get some research done.
