Legacy of Worlds​

'Legacy of Worlds' follows a group of legendary D&D characters on a vital mission to save the multiverse. The journey begins with pre-recorded episodes leading up to a live broadcast on Saturday during GaryCon.

The story picks up in the enigmatic city of Sigil at the conclusion of 'Legacy of Worlds'. Here, the heroes find themselves in dire need of a diverse army of adventurers to aid in locating a missing person who holds key information vital to their quest.

Proxy Hunt​

Breaking new ground, ‘Proxy Hunt' is the first D&D Epic to allow cross-campaign play, enabling characters from Forgotten Realms, Dragonlance, Ravenloft, and Eberron to unite. D&D Adventurers League Epics are large multi-table events where all the tables are participating at the same time in an epic story featuring hundreds of players. This adventure, tailored for tiers 2 and 3 (levels 5-10 and 11-16), emphasizes creative problem-solving and features all pillars of play, moving away from traditional combat-heavy narratives. This thrilling saga is written by Greg Marks, Toni Winslow-Brill, and Tommy Gofton, alongside contributions from numerous industry luminaries.

GaryCon attendees can expect an immersive experience with special guests, surprise roles, and exclusive prizes. For those unable to attend, ‘Proxy Hunt’ will later be available on DMsGuild, complete with rules for solo table play, ensuring everyone can partake in this epic tale.

‘DDDAL-Proxy Hunt’, like many Epics is set for a 4 hour game and optimized for 8th and 13th-level D&D Adventurers League characters:

“Legends from across the planes desperately seek information from Ferrix, the weretiger goddess of curiosity, but her proxy has disappeared in the City of Doors before a meeting could occur. Unable to locate the missing emissary, the legendary heroes transport adventurers from their home realms to aid in the search. It’s a race against time to find the missing proxy, aided and hindered by the Factions of Sigil. Not everyone can win, but if the adventurers fail, everyone loses.”

Your Turn: Are you going to GaryCon next year? Will you be participating in this Planescape Epic?

No, is more my idea of they advertising "the multiverse", and yet the only thing they use are the same old worlds from the start of 5e.
Well they stopped caring about Greyhawk for a long time.

They refuse to remaster and fix Al-Qadim, Maztica, and Kara-Tur to get rid of all the Westernized-tropes and stereotypes and have writers of the proper heritage rewrite these (yes, all of them are Forgotten Realms, but vastly different enough to be considered its own setting while also sharing the same world)

Mystara, Birthright, etc. are too small enough of a base for them to care.

They want to Disney-fi all the settings (they already "Scooby-Doo"ed Ravenloft), and because of that they refuse to do Dark Sun because an extremely small minority is somehow being loud enough to be upset about "fantasy slavery" leaving heroic PCs fighting against people jaywalking instead of real evil (and they also HATE Psionics with a passion, clearly, at least the OG developers loved it enough to give Psionics its own system in 3e and even 4e).

I miss TSR and early WotC, before Hasbro meddled in.

Universal translator in the ear.
Also, the common tongue has similarities, because long ago a species of alien that were soon to die out decided to put the seeds of all the other species on diferent planets, ehm, planes...
The development of language is so complex that the Common Tongue would definitely be different on each world. You might be onto something about the aliens seeding the planets, though, because many of the D&D worlds have Earth-inspired cultures on them. For example, pick an Earth culture and it will most likely have a fantasy version of it somewhere on Oerth, Toril or Krynn. What are the chances of that happening?

If it were me, I’d have a Planar Common Tongue that planewalkers can learn. But the natives of the Prime worlds wouldn’t know this. So planewalkers would have to find a way to communicate somehow. Perhaps Sigil sells some cheap one-shot magic item that allows you to translate the Common Tongue of a particular world for the adventure session.

Yes. Of course. That was half jokingly.
But if they all developed from the starting point, the universal translator has a chance.
In D&D, all started in the first world... And it is a magical world. So just cite the Simpsons:
Why... "the wizard". (Or the Gods or primordials...)

My only gripe is that as a not regular AL player, I can only play low level characters. Still a lot of fun, but I would love to see an Epic run with pre‑gens and allowing you play in other tiers. Perhaps pregens that do not lead to AL XP and loot. But AL players may feel like us non AL players are just taking away seats from non AL players. Maybe just a non-AL epic.

While you have a good idea with having pregens, you are able to create a fifth level character in AL now. That's going to let you play and keep a tier two Forgotten Realms character.

oh and they do have tier two and tier three pregens for Eberron, the rules for that may no longer exist, since they updated Eberron entirely. But it might.

You may have known all of this, but just in case you didn't, always happy to spread good news when I can. :)

Thanks. I haven't played an AL game in almost 5 years. Good to know that if I decide to play again I'll have an option of starting at 5th level.
