Good Morning D&D – What You May Have Missed

Dungeons & Dragons is all about epic stories and adventures that rival even The Odyssey. Well, us here at HeavyShelf wanted to challenge Homer at his own game of adventure. With I, Erick Schwartz, as your Dungeon Master guide, I wanted to tell a story with the amazing HeavyShelf team; Shane, Parker Sara and, of course, everybody’s favourite cloven-hoved mammal, Moose. We wanted to write up a quick summary as to what has happened up to this point, in my handcrafted land of Alzurkania. Continue reading “Good Morning D&D – What You May Have Missed”

Pokemon: Let’s Go, Eevee! Review — A New Twist

Preface

At the time of writing this review I have only played part of Pokémon Sun and maybe a month of Pokémon GO. The Legend of Zelda took most of my time as a kid so I missed the Pokémon franchise. That being said, if I describe aspects of the game and it is old news to you – please take the previous statements into consideration. I stopped playing Pokémon GO a while ago, and therefore deleted the game from phone. I will not be going over the integration from Pokémon GO to Pokémon: Let’s Go, Eevee!

Heavyshelf presents, Good Morning DnD!

Hello and happy Friday, to you all!

I’m sure you all are grinding through your workday, working for the weekend. And I’m sure a good portion of you are anxiously watching the hands on your clock tick down to quitting-time, so you can rush home to get ready for your Friday D&D.

But, once your session ends, you’re probably still hankering for more Dungeons & Dragons. Well, fear no longer! As Heavyshelf is proud to unveil Session 0 of our new weekly series Good Morning, D&D!

Join Erick Schwartz (that’s me!) as he tells his handcrafted story of mystery and suspense in what is titled Strangers in Alzurkania. Tune in to witness as team-members Shane, Sara, Parker and Moose explore and strive to survive in the foreign and untamed continent of Alzurkania.

Session 0 will be focused on discussing the campaign, rules, expectations, and addressing the audience. The team will be locking down their characters and setting up for the opening scene of this campaign. After all of the formalities have concluded, the adventure begins.

Good Morning, D&D! will debut on Saturday, March 9 at 9:00AM EST on Heavyshelf’s Twitch Channel using Fantasy Grounds as our platform. But, it isn’t expected for everybody to get up early to witness adventure! If you miss our stream, check out the re-runs on our YouTube channel! And if you’re a commuter and want to listen to our glorious voices tell the story of mystery and adventure, check out our audio-only version!

And if that wasn’t enough, premium members will have access to behind-the-scenes recordings, such as character workshops and session -1!

We will be awake and ready for adventure…will you?

 

Titanfall 2 – A Fun Multiplayer FPS with a Short Campaign

I am going to start this review by speaking about the mechanics of the game. While Titanfall 2 has a solid campaign, it is rather short and not where I would expect most peoples’ time to be spent. Online multiplayer is by far the meat of the game.

The gameplay is excellent; you move smoothly and are able to transition from wall running to sliding along the ground while turning your opponent into a pin cushion. Each Titan feels unique and requires a different approach to how your opponent’s Titan will be transformed into scrap metal.
