Hey Dice Droppers,
As we approach the end of our launch week, we at Dice Drop are working to finish up Episode 2 for you guys. The new episode will be up on Friday at 1:00 PM EST. It's a really calm, comedic episode that puts the Warehouse Gang in the spotlight while also shows our heroes adjusting to their new lives. But, I will talk about that more on Monday, when the DM Notes for that comes out.
As for today, I will be focusing on Episode 1: “I don't know how, but they found me.”
I refer to this episode as the first end-cap episode. This is where we wrap up the main PCs backstories and get them all in the same place. “I don't know how, but they found me” gives the players a chance to feel the aftermath of their origin stories and come to terms with their newfound abilities.
Episode 1 also properly introduces you to our four main NPCs: Hood, Shade, River, and Blink. It gives you a chance early on to see them in the aftermath of a mission and what happens in the event of a failed mission. You meet them in a vulnerable and broken state, with three new additions to their home. And yet, they take these characters in without hesitation because that was how they were taught.
You also meet the PCs in a very broken state, and I think that is what brings these characters together and melds the two groups together. There is a bonding moment between them very early on in the campaign that allows them to come together and maybe…just maybe, join a team and become something bigger.
There really isn't much to talk about in this episode, seeing as it is the end of our Origin arc. This week we begin the story proper and get to see our PCs more relaxed and ready for the challenges to come. Be sure to check out our social media pages and right here on dicedropblog.com for news. Leave a comment be low letting us know what you thought of “I don't know how, but they found me”. And, be sure to check back Friday for a new blog post and a brand new episode of Dice Drop: Evolution.
