We’re Livestreaming the New D&D Starter Set


Watch right here as we get into adventurin’ trouble.

The starter set for the brand new edition of Dungeons & Dragons released recently, and since the magic is back we decided we’d sit down and pretend to be wizards for a while. We livestreamed the set’s initial encounter and adventure for a few hours, encountering goblins and worse.


  • Escapist Editor-in-Chief Greg Tito as Elven Wizard Shardan Gildersleeve
  • Producer Paul Goodman as Human Noble Fighter Ptolemy of House Lysander
  • Producer Justin Clouse as Dwarf Cleric Baldur
  • and Tabletop Games Editor Jon Bolding as the Dungeon Master
