Blood Hunter by Anthony Joyce (@Thrawn589)
This is my quick and dirty review with the intention to go more in depth in the future.
I’ve been captivated by the cover illustration by Gordon McAlpin (@gmcalpin) and colorist Rebecca McConnell (@purple_madness) of “a Blood Hunter waves a flaming sword at an unseen enemy while cradling the infant drow” since the first previews came out. It truly captures the essence of this adventure.
In Joyce’s words, this is an “adventure designed entirely around Matthew Mercer’s Blood Hunter class. This adventure is an experiment in one-on-one adventure design that focuses on maximizing the player’s immersion as they play their character. Every design choice I made in this adventure builds around the Blood Hunter class features.”
I’m absolutely captivated by this uniquely focused endeavour!
It combines the best parts of a choose your own with duet adventure, stripped down and sharpened into an awesomely effective and engaging experience!
This is your chance to feel like a Witcher, to be a Blood Hunter and experience a whirlwind few days in their complicated, exciting lives. Joyce has created a bold and uniquely focused adventure with serious heart, inventing a new adventure type, which is sure to catch on! This short, sweet adventure is filled with famous cameos, references, combat, roleplay all the good stuff that will delight and intrigue new and old players alike.
I absolutely need to see more of this!
