Any information or evidence suggesting these issues coincided with the return of this unit to the proximal location of the Guild House are erroneous and fabricated. As to my purpose, there was concern about the integrity ...

Interesting, Informative, and Interactive!

I stumbled upon Heroes Rise whilst looking for a new DnD podcast to listen to while waiting for new episodes of my actual play podcasts to release. Heroes rise is incredible. It’s great for seasoned players, new players, DMs, or anyone looking to get into the hobby! I’ve been playing for a few years and it’s so nice to hear 3 new and different perspectives on a variety of dnd topics. They also have a great community of listeners and they respect and take feedback from their audience. Highly recommended.

Love your show, keep up the great work!

I was introduced to this podcast by my dad. I hope you continue to make amazing entries to the chronicle. My favorite part of the episodes is everything, even the bloopers. They are super silly mistakes. Thanks for all of the work for this simple, yet enjoyable podcast. Plus the focus is on D&D related topics, instead of talking about the real life weather, what your most recent game you played on ROBLOX yesterday, or the latest update on STO(which is supposed to be on Priority One). Keep that type of focus.

Chock Full of Content

As someone who doesn't have tremendous amount of time to watch streams or browse for news, having this podcast is a great way to catch up while on my commute. I love the toolkit section, and keep going back to the links on the site again and again.

Featurettes like explaining Bounded Accuracy has helped me prepare my game while avoiding pitfalls like assuming 5E requires 4E levels of +bonus magic item proliferation.

Great job guys!
