This week, Morrus and Peter take a spoiler-free look at the new Dungeons & Dragons adventure, Descent Into Avernus! In the news, new D&D spell effect minis from WizKids, Eberron DM screen and maps from Gale Force 9, a map of Middle Earth for The One Ring – Lord of the Rings Roleplaying Game, a map of 2000AD’s Cursed Earth for Judge Dredd, and more! Plus a brand new sketch, Our Favorite Game in All the World, and several cameos from Morrus’ dog, Hudson!

Editor’s Note: I tried to cut down on the dog barking in the episode as much as possible, but Hudson would not be silenced and wanted his voice heard on the doggo perspective on Modiphius’s new license acquisitions. Just note that there is a lot of dog barking in the episode.
