Idle Champions: Founders' Day 6 
Posted in Idle Champions.

Founders' Day is noted on city calendars as the first day of Flamerule and commemorates the Free City of Waterdeep's founding. The Field of Triumph is the site of illusory shows of the history of the city as well as martial exhibitions by the guard and other noted warriors of the city. The Champions have joined in the celebration, but Archduke Zariel of Avernus has set a plan in motion to harvest souls for the Blood War during the festivities!

Will our Champions be able to stop her in time?

Founders' Day 6 introduces Strongheart, the Human Paladin from the Dungeons & Dragon Cartoon Show (as well as the Wild Beyond the Witchlight Campaign!), and brings back Nahara, the aasimar warlock/bard from The Black Dice Society, and Sergeant Knox, the human fighter from Neverwinter.

New Champion: Strongheart

    Strongheart is a fearless seeker of justice, risking his life to ensure that good triumphs over evil. He is thoughtful, kind, and seldom rash, yet never hesitant to punish those who spit in the face of law and order.

Strongheart is a support and healing Champion who helps you complete your quests, literally, as he doubles the quest progress of his adventuring party. He heals his nearby companions to make sure those quests can be completed, and he's always willing to lend a hand to those in need. Once unlocked, you can find this human paladin in Slot 11 (Jamilah).

For more information on Strongheart and his abilities, check out his Champion Spotlight!

Year Six Variants

Oath of Justice: Save Waterdeep from the chaos of a Founders' Day gone awry with Strongheart! Strongheart starts in the formation (Slot 5) and can be moved, but not removed. Only Strongheart and Champions next to him can deal damage.
  • Reach Area 75.

  • Oath of Valor: Save Waterdeep from the chaos of a Founders' Day gone awry with good heroes. Strongheart starts in the formation (Slot 5) and can be moved, but not removed. Only Strongheart and Good champions can deal damage.
  • Reach Area 125.

  • Oath of Friendship: Save Waterdeep from the chaos of a Founders' Day gone awry with Strongheart's new friends. Strongheart starts in the formation (Slot 5) and can be moved, but not removed. Only Strongheart and Champions from the affiliation with the most members in the formation can deal damage.
  • Reach Area 175.

  • Much more detail and information can be found in the game! Enjoy!

    Idle Champions: Dragondown 6 
    Posted in Idle Champions.

    At the mouth of the River Mirar in the northwest of the Sword Coast lies the port city of Luskan, also known as the City of Sails. Officially governed by the five High Captains, Luskan is actually secretly run by Jarlaxle Baenre and the Bregan D'aerthe.

    And they need your help.

    While celebrating the Summer Solstice with a smaller scale version of Waterdeep's Dragondown festival, Luskan has managed to draw the attention - and the wrath - of a Bronze Dragon and their kin...

    Dragondown 6 introduces BBEG, the Drow Necromancer villain from Deerstalker Picture's 1 for All, and brings back Merilwen, the Wood Elf Ranger from Oxventurers Guild and Selise Astorio, Human Paladin of the Rivals of Waterdeep. Players have until Monday, June 19th at 12PM Pacific to complete their Dragondown 6 unlocks and objectives.

    New Champion: BBEG

      BBEG is the Big Bad Evil Guy, a Drow necromancer who believes immaculate planning will always lead to success. Unfortunately, his constant failures contradict this conviction. BBEG likes to monologue and taunt his opponents, leaving his summoned zombies to engage directly in combat.

    BBEG is a support and speed Champion that chews the scenery so much he breaks through the 4th wall. As the Big Bad Evil Guy of the Awful Ones campaign, this necromancer stands back and lets his less intelligent zombie minions do the hard work. His strength lies in being able to railroad the Champions through to more exciting parts of the adventure. Once unlocked, you can find this Drow necromancer in Slot 3 opposite Nayeli.

    For more information on BBEG and his abilities, check out his Champion Spotlight!

    Year Six Variants

    Roll For INT-ish-a-tive!: Attempt to calm down a very angry bronze dragon with a very angry BBEG. BBEG starts in the formation (Slot 5) and can be moved, but not removed. You may only use BBEG and/or Champions with an Intelligence of 12 or lower.
  • Reach Area 75.

  • Herding Cats: Attempt to calm down a very angry bronze dragon and a bunch of cats. BBEG starts in the formation (Slot 5) and can be moved, but not removed. Every second, a cat spawns and moves toward a random champion. When the cat reaches the champion, they are stunned for 3 seconds because of overwhelming cuteness. The cats can't be attacked. Stunned Champions cannot attack, but their formation abilities remain enabled.
  • Reach Area 125.

  • It Was Me All Along!: Attempt to calm down a very angry bronze dragon with BBEG's favorite meat shields! BBEG starts in the formation (Slot 5) and can be moved, but not removed. You may only use Lawful Champions, Evil Champions, or Champions with a total ability score of 78 or less.
  • Reach Area 175.

  • Much more detail and information can be found in the game! Enjoy!
