In this episode, Mike and Rodney look back at the third and final session of the D&D Next livestream game of A:1 Slave Pits of the Undercity. Mike used miniatures and D&D Dungeon Tiles to build a set-piece encounter for this last session and Mike and Rodney talk about how this affected the play, and how DMs could integrate this and other styles into their game in D&D Next. They also touch on one hour rests, renewable character resources and plans for the next live stream.
For those of you who missed a session of the game, we've started livestreaming sessions of R&D testing the most current iteration of D&D Next. While we have wrapped up this adventure, additional R&D live streams will follow in the coming weeks. We have session one and two in the archives, and the final session can be viewed below:
