I don’t quite possess the love and nostalgia for Ridley Scott’s 1982 sci-fi classic, Blade Runner, but I do respect the hell out of it for how it (and most Philip K. Dick stories) influenced and inspired so much of our modern storytelling, including this third chapter of The Heir of Orcus Adventurer’s League series.

Designed for a level 8 party, The Heir of Orcus: Verse 3 takes a surprising yet satisfying left turn into sci-fi territory with a well-realized cyberpunk city, bolstered by incredible artwork and map designs.

The Saga of the Worm series of Adventure League modules concludes with Trust and Understanding, easily one of the most poorly named adventures I’ve ever come across.

Trust and Understanding doesn’t conclude the series so much as provide yet another standard AL-friendly dungeon crawl with Kyuss-themed enemies, this time at a solid Tier 4 challenge level. The few interesting ideas end up poorly executed or underdeveloped.

The magic and terror of D&D is that some things you plan work out far better than you could have imagined – and of course, just the opposite is true. I witnessed both ends of the spectrum in this week’s session, as the PCs had their first meeting with Zagmira, did some shopping with a surprise merchant, and acquired their next puzzle cube.
