As we begin this week’s Dragon Talk, our hosts Shelly Mazzanoble (@shellymoo) and Greg Tito (@gregtito) seem to be lost in time again! Using a cellphone just to make…phone calls? Myspace? Friendster!? Thankfully we return to the present just in time to have a conversation with Adam Bradford (@BadEyeAdam) and Todd Kenreck (@ToddKenreck) of Curse.com, the web application developers who created D&D Beyond, the amazing digital companion web app for Dungeons and Dragons. The first order of business is to establish what everyone’s cosplay characters should be. Greg Tito in a Viking helm as Balduran from Baldur’s Gate, perhaps? Then Adam Bradford reveals the exciting news that the beta for the D&D Beyond app on Android and iPhone platforms is now available as a free download! Lore You Should Know – Matt Sernett (@sernett) & Chris Perkins (@chrisPerkinsDnD) are on the show today to discuss the villainous Shadar-Kai. These fiendish humanoids were introduced in the 1st Edition of the Fiend Folio in 1981 and have been twisted and changed over the years with each new creature tome issued, but have always held a dark allure, as doomed beings from the Shadowfell.
