OK, so the set-up is that Alustriel Silverhand, Mordenkainen and Tasha find out Vecna is up to Shennanigans, gather in Sigil and cast Wish to defeat him...and the Wish summons the player characters.

Todd says it feels like a big package of mini-Adventures, 7 chapters each with one Setting thst has a piece of the Rod of Seven Parts.

Heh, the Secret of the Silver Blades beginning. Hopefully, they also remember to wish for your equipment (and clothes!), unlike the townsfolk in the CPRG!

Alustriel: good
Mordenkainen: neutral
Tasha: evil
 


The dragon from 14:36, is it a planar dragon? Will we see a "spider-dragon"? I didn't like that miniature.

I wonder if the fate of Tasha's daughter could be rewritten or retonected. If her mother can cast a wish spell then...

What if Kas the vampire reappear? And possibly he does "that" again.
