Idle Champions Presents: FAQ 
Posted in Idle Champions.

We've just concluded the second episode of Idle Champions Presents: The Unfair Seas, and are thrilled with how it's going so far! We wanted to clear up some Frequently Asked Questions asked in the community, especially around voting. Be sure to check out our previous Idle Champions Presents blog post for more details on the cast and the livestream and in-game interactions.

What is Idle Champions Presents?

Idle Champions Presents is a six-week interactive in-game and livestream event that runs from February 16th until March 31st. For these six weeks you'll be able to complete challenges, earn rewards, and vote to influence the events of the live D&D show Idle Champions Presents: The Unfair Seas (Feb 22, Mar 1, and Mar 8) and Idle Champions Presents: A Fool's Errand (Mar 15, Mar 22, and Mar 29). The Idle Champions Presents show airs live each Monday at 4PM Pacific on CNEGames Twitch and you can also watch the video later on our YouTube channel.

Idle Champions Presents: The Unfair Seas B Dave Walters Erin M Evans Krystina Arielle Mark Meer Vivid Vivka

Can I have the TL;DR?

Each day, a new vote will become available within Idle Champions. The result of that vote will influence a tabletop D&D episode that airs the following Monday. Check back in-game daily to collect rewards and vote on the next day's question! Learn more about Idle Champions Presents and its cast on our previous blog post.

Do I have to watch the Twitch Livestream to participate?

All you have to do is play Idle Champions to participate! In addition to helping to craft an unforgettable show, at the completion of each vote, a new in-game reward becomes available. The in-game reward will normally be something related to the vote, so we recommend voting to get the best experience, but we welcome everyone to enjoy the rewards.

Where can I watch Idle Champions Presents episodes?

Idle Champions Presents broadcasts for 6 episodes, starting on Feb 22nd and ending on Mar 29. All episodes start at 4PM Pacific on the CNEGames Twitch. If you miss the livestream you can watch the video on demand on Twitch, or soon after the broadcast on our YouTube channel.

Voting FAQ

How long are votes available?

Normally, votes are available for 24 hours: From 12PM Pacific to 12PM Pacific the following day. At 12PM the vote total will become public, and the reward will become available for all players. On Mondays, our newest episode will air, and we don't want to give away any spoilers for the next episode! There will be no active vote from 12PM Pacific on Mondays until the end of that evening's episode. Once the episode airs, the next vote becomes available, with players who are active in-game at that time getting a first shot at the vote!

Can I vote for both choices?

If you want to, absolutely. You do you.

How many votes can I get each week?

Each day at 12PM Pacific, you'll automatically earn a new vote. Each week, you can earn up to 6 additional votes through challenges. Earned votes (including the free vote available each day at noon), are available for the duration of the Idle Champions Presents event.

What are challenges?

Challenges are in-game tasks that you can complete to earn extra votes. Challenges come in a variety of difficulties; some votes are easier to earn than others. New challenges unlock every week and can be accessed on each week's page. Each challenge is available to complete for six days after it unlocks. After the six days have passed, any unfinished challenges will no longer be completable.

What can I earn from challenges?

Each complete challenge earns an additional vote.

How long do I have to redeem a reward?

Rewards will be available for the duration of the Idle Champions Presents event. The notification will turn off at 12PM Pacific on March 31st, so we suggest collecting all of your rewards before then.

Why can't I see clips on any of the votes?

We can't show you clips of how your vote changed the game until our players get around the virtual table! Every Tuesday, we'll be cutting, taping, and super gluing the episode together to feature short clips that highlight how you and the members of the Idle Champion community changed the game! We hope players will enjoy checking out the previous episode's antics in the lead-up to the next episode!

Do you have to vote to collect a reward?

Not for this event. Rewards for past votes are available to all players, regardless of whether they voted during the active 24 hours. You can collect a day's reward by visiting the voting page after its completion. Check back next week, and you'll be able to see how your vote(s) affected the TRPG game! As we get further into Idle Champions Presents, we hope to have many fun clips to share!

We can't wait to see how this all comes together! We hope you'll join us in discussion about Idle Champions Presents on Twitter using the #IdleChampionsPresents hashtag and tagging @IdleChampions.

February 8th
Idle Champions Presents: The Unfair Seas 
Posted in Idle Champions.

It's difficult to believe that we've been doing weekly livestreams since October 2017. And since almost the very beginning we've had players ask us one question: "Are you going to do your own Idle Champions TRPG show?"

It's a question we had often disregarded as 'impossible' or 'unlikely' — we're fans of Critical Role, Acquisitions Incorporated, High Rollers, and so many other shows. What could we possibly do that those shows aren't already doing?

But then we had an idea...

What if we made a TRPG live play show where every cast member played their character featured in Idle Champions, with a different 'formation'/cast for each adventure? And what if when you played Idle Champions during the week leading up to each episode, you could affect the episode through decisions you made? And what if the events in each episode would then affect Idle Champions afterwards? What could that look like?

We've tried doing interactive integrations with TRPG shows before, with High Rollers and Acquisitions Incorporated: The "C" Team, so we had some ideas when it comes to these kinds of projects. What would happen if we took our lessons learned and made our own show, featuring a cast of amazing people playing the very Champions they have in Idle Champions?

Idle Champions Presents starring B Dave Walters | Krystina Arielle | Erin M Evans | Mark Meer | Adam Bradford | Vivid Vivka | and Special Guests

Idle Champions Presents

We are excited to announce Idle Champions Presents, a TRPG live play special event series starting Monday, February 22nd. Each episode of Idle Champions Presents will broadcast live from 4PM until 7PM Pacific Time on the CNEGames Twitch.

Join Dungeon Master B Dave Walters (A Darkened Wish, Silver & Steel) as he takes Krystina Arielle (Sirens of the Realms, Star Wars: The High Republic Show), Erin M Evans (Brimstone Angels, Dungeon Scrawlers), and Mark Meer (Mass Effect, Baldur's Gate Enhanced Edition) and a rotating cast of guest Champions on a grand tour of the Sword Coast across two different adventures based on Idle Champions of the Forgotten Realms, starting with Idle Champions Presents: The Unfair Seas on February 22nd.

Idle Champions Presents: The Unfair Seas B Dave Walters Erin M Evans Krystina Arielle Mark Meer Vivid Vivka
    Idle Champions Presents: The Unfair Seas (February 22, March 1, and March 8) features special guests Vivid Vivka (Sirens of the Realms), and Luke Gygax. Our first adventure sees the Champions in a seaside town along the Sword Coast, where they investigate the mysterious disappearance of a merchant vessel.

    Idle Champions Presents: ? (March 15, March 22, and March 29) features special guests Adam Bradford (Beyond Heroes), and [REDACTED]. We'll release more information about the second adventure in the coming weeks!

The fun starts on February 22nd at 4PM PT at Twitch.tv/CNEGames. We hope the audience enjoys participating in this as much as we have in putting it together!


Vote for the Show You Want to See

Idle Champions players will be able to influence the characters and events of upcoming Idle Champions Presents episodes through in-game daily votes. Starting on Tuesdays with the in-game daily reset (12PM PT), each vote will go live for 24 hours, with the sixth and final vote for the week ending on Monday at 12PM PT.

Daily votes will have both an In-Game Effect and a Livestream Effect. For example, if players vote for one of two Champions to be granted a boon for the next episode of Idle Champions Presents, that Champion would be granted a corresponding boon in Idle Champions of the Forgotten Realms! We don't want to spoil everything that players will be able to vote for, but here's an idea of what a few of the daily votes might look like:

  • Inspiring Choice — Which (of two) Champion should receive inspiration?
    • In-Game Effect: The winner gains an in-game buff for the next week after the vote completes.
    • Livestream Effect: The winner gains inspiration (advantage on an ability check, a saving throw, or an attack roll) at the start of the next episode.

  • You're the DM Now! — Do the Champions meet goblins, or kobolds? Who explores the darkness? What funny affliction affects the chosen Champion?
    • In-Game Effect: these effects vary from nothing to altering the event structure of an event or replacing all the enemies faced during an adventure. It will vary from question to question. Have you ever wondered what would happen if you fought an army of Abyssal Chickens instead of Goblins on an adventure?
    • Livestream Effect: We don't know how this will affect the show, but chances are it will be hilarious.
  • Dice Roll! — Which Champion gains an Iris D6™?
    • In-Game Effect: Idle Champions Players get their own D6 to roll in-game for a variety of prizes. If you roll a '6' you get an extra-special prize -- and there's some bad luck protection to help you get all the prizes so long as you participate in every Dice Roll! throughout the season.
    • Livestream Effect: The chosen Champion gains a special Iris D6™ to add to one of their D20 rolls in the next episode.

This is just two examples of the kinds of choices players will be able to make. We've been working closely with B Dave Walters to craft additional choices and surprises to reveal over the course of the series!

But wait, there's more: we are introducing Weekly Challenges each week that will vary between easy, medium, and difficult challenges to earn additional votes for daily votes. You can save these votes up for as long as you wish, using them all on the final vote in Week 6 if you wish. The choice is up to you!

The first vote begins on Tuesday, February 16 at 12PM PT in-game. You'll want to check in every day if you want the most chances to influence Idle Champions Presents — and don't worry if you miss a vote, the In-Game Effects are applied automatically so you won't miss out entirely!


What do I need to know?

Idle Champions Presents: The Unfair Seas begins on Monday, February 22nd with the first episode broadcasting from 4PM until 7PM Pacific Time on Twitch.tv/CNEGames. Daily votes for the first episode will begin the week before, starting on Tuesday, February 16th at 12PM Pacific.

We can't wait to see how this all comes together! We hope you'll join us in discussion about Idle Champions Presents on Twitter using the #IdleChampionsPresents hashtag and tagging @IdleChampions.

Idle Champions: Festival of Fools 3 
Posted in Idle Champions.

How far would you go to celebrate foolishness?

Festival of Fools is a time honored tradition in Sword Coast communities. Townsfolk engage in the usual gluttonous consumption of food and drink during the festivities, but they also play pranks on each other.

Unfortunately, one prankster has decided to play a practical joke on a Frost Giant nearby...

Festival of Fools 3 introduces Briv Steelmarrow, Half-Orc Paladin (Oath of Heroism), and brings back Rosie and Strix Beestinger. Players have until Monday, March 23 at 12PM Pacific to complete their Festival of Fools 3 unlocks and objectives.

Dungeons & Dragons

Year 3 Champion: Briv Steelmarrow

    Relentlessly brave but markedly uncouth, Briv Steelmarrow is a stalwart champion of the weak, innocent, downtrodden, and oppressed. Centuries ago, a cabal of Netherese mages experimented on Briv’s clan, gifting him with a magical metal inside his bones that he can pull through his skin and shape for attack or defense. Once a slaver, Briv sought atonement by joining the Order of the Lost Cause, an elite group of knights that travel across Faerûn, taking on quests that only fools would pursue.

Briv is a Tank, Support, and Healing Champion. He uses his Unnatural Haste ability to speed up area progression, and his Steelbones boosts his defense while buffing Champions behind him. When you want to add Briv to your formation, you can swap him with Calliope (Slot 5).

For more information about Briv, check out the Idle Champion Spotlight: Briv Steelmarrow dev blog!

Dungeons & Dragons Rosie Beestinger Acquisitions Incorporated

Year 2 Champion: Rosie Beestinger

    Weighing in at just under 30 pounds and with a grandmotherly demeanor befitting her advanced age, Rosie Beestinger is easily mistaken for someone on the wrong side of the “aggressor/victim” relationship. But this is a mix-up that few people make more than once.
Rosie Beestinger is a sassy DPS Champion. Her damage increases for each Champion in the formation younger than she is, and she catches and deflects incoming missiles.

When you want to add Rosie Beestinger to your formation, you can swap her with Tyril (Slot 10). For more information about Rosie, check out the Idle Champion Spotlight: Rosie Beestinger dev blog!

Dungeons & Dragons Strix Beestinger

Year 1 Champion: Strix Beestinger

    The Sorcerer known as Strix is from Sigil, the City of Doors at the center of the multiverse. Very little is known of Strix's heritage, even to herself, but it was recently discovered that she was a powerful member of the Skizzicks family, who long ago made a pact with Asmodeus, ruler of the Nine Hells, to become Tieflings.
Strix Beestinger is a 'Trash Witch' DPS Champion who attacks enemies with Fireballs. Her Poor Hygiene ability causes approaching enemies to take increased damage. When you want to add Strix to your party, you can swap her with Jamilah (Slot 11).

Year Three Variants

  • A Little Perspective — Pixies spawn at random in all non-boss areas. When a Pixie spawns, it shrinks a random Champion by 33%, decreasing their damage done by 99%. This effect persists until the Pixie causing it is killed. This effect can stack multiplicatively if multiple Pixies target the same Champion.
    Reach Area 75.

  • Nerves of Steel — Briv starts in the formation and can not be moved, removed, or swapped out. Normal enemies move faster and attack faster; bosses are unaffected.
    Reach Area 125.

  • A Delicious Diversion — A cart of tasty pies, baguettes, and other baked snacks takes up two slots in the formation; the cart has 100 hit points. Ravenous Crows and Famished Rats spawn randomly in each area. These additional creatures have armored health. If, for whatever reason, the cart is smashed, you immediately lose the area and go back to the previous area.
    Reach Area 175.

Year Two Variants

  • A Lighter Touch — Only Champions with a Strength (STR) score of 14 or lower may be used. Additionally, Champions with an Intelligence (INT) score of 14 or higher deal 400% increased damage.
    Reach Area 75.

  • Flay the Fools — During boss areas, Mind Flayers appear and attack the formation. While alive, Mind Flayers make all other enemies immune to damage.
    Reach Area 125.

  • Beestingers Unleashed — This adventure features unique dialogue created with the help of Strix & Rosie themselves! Strix and Rosie Beestinger begin the adventure in your formation with Strix asking Rosie what it means to be a Beestinger. No other Champions are able to be used, however, both Strix and Rosie Beestinger have increased damage, increased attack speed, and reduced Ultimate ability cooldowns. Additionally, Rosie Beestinger's Matriarch also doubles her health.
    Completing this adventure will unlock a bee outfit for both Rosie & Strix!
    Reach Area 175.

Year One Variants

  • Foolish Variance — Champions randomly do between 0.1% and 199.9% of their actual damage with each hit.
    Reach Area 75.

  • Persistent Foolishness — The Drunken Fool appears randomly in non-boss areas. Only one can be spawned at a time, but he has special abilities each time he appears.
    Reach Area 125.

  • Like Father Like Son — The farmer's son takes up a slot in the formation. He moves to a new slot every 25 areas. Every 15 seconds (in non-boss areas) the farmer's son foolishly summons a Frost Giant to attack the formation unless Strix is adjacent to him.
    Reach Area 175.

Idle Champion Spotlight: Briv Steelmarrow 
Posted in Idle Champions.

It's time for the latest Idle Champion Spotlight, and this time around we're talking about a Tanking, Support, and Healing Champion who can create heavy armor with Netherese Steel stored in his very bones!

And did we mention that this Half-Orc Champion has his very own flumph ally?

Read on and learn all about Briv Steelmarrow...

I. Savage Paladin



    Relentlessly brave but markedly uncouth, Briv Steelmarrow is a stalwart champion of the weak, innocent, downtrodden, and oppressed. Centuries ago, a cabal of Netherese mages experimented on Briv’s clan, gifting him with a magical metal inside his bones that he can pull through his skin and shape for attack or defense. Once a slaver, Briv sought atonement by joining the Order of the Lost Cause, an elite group of knights that travel across Faerûn, taking on quests that only fools would pursue.

II. Briv's Stats

Race: Half-Orc Alignment: Chaotic Good
Class: Paladin (Oath of Heroism) Gender: Male
Age: 42 Affiliation: none

STR: 16 DEX: 14 CON: 16
INT: 10 WIS: 8 CHA: 18

Eligible for Patrons: Mirt, Vajra

III. Briv's Design

It's always a joy to work with a passionate creator to bring their character to life as a Champion in our game, and working with D&D Beyond's Adam Bradford was no exception. Adam was quick to provide numerous examples of Briv character art, including the official art by Max Dunbar, which really went a long ways towards helping to paint the visual picture of Briv Steelmarrow.


Art by Max Dunbar


Briv's abilities were an interesting challenge. With Netherese Steel in his bones, Briv has the ability to shoot it out of his pores to create heavy armor at will — or even violently expel it as a kind of shrapnel weapon, pulling it back into his body afterwards. These abilities became Steelbones, the core of Briv's design where he gains stacks of Steelbones when he is attacked, Netherese Steel, where Briv increases the damage of Champions behind him based how many stacks of Steelbones he has, and Netherese Explosion, where he uses the steel in his body to create an explosion out from him.

With Unnatural Haste we gave Briv a unique new ability that allows you to actually skip areas(!), consuming stacks of Sprint in the process. There is a minimum number of stacks needed for this ability to be able to proc (50), and each time it triggers it will consume a percentage of your stacks. How do you get Sprint stacks, you ask? When you reset, all stacks of Steelbones you have are converted into Sprint stacks, which persist through resets until they're consumed by Unnatural Haste. This will offer players quite the boost through those early levels after you complete a long Free Play. Don't worry about missing out on gems or loot — you will still earn anything you may have missed from areas you skip!

A pet flumph named Phlo accompanies Briv wherever he goes, and he has a unique ability, Healing Phlo, where Phlo stores healing power whenever Briv is struck by an attack. After 10 hits or 10 seconds, whichever comes first, Phlo heals all Champions in the party for 50% of the damage that Briv received during that time!

Flumphs really are the best.



IV. Briv's Abilities

Basic Attack

  • Mocking Cleave — Briv leaps out and attacks a random enemy with his greatsword, cleaving all nearby enemies as well. On each enemy hit, there is a 20% chance that they will stop attacking another Champion and attack Briv if possible..

Formation Abilities

  • Steelbones — Whenever Briv comes under attack, metal shoots out of his pores, covering him in heavy armor. This effect persists as long as Briv remains under attack, and for an additional five seconds afterwards. While armored, Briv takes 10% less damage and gains a stack of Steelbones whenever he is hit by an enemy attack.
  • Netherese Steel — Briv increases the damage of all Champions behind him by 0.01% for each stack of Steelbones he has gained.
  • Unnatural Haste — Briv has a 25% chance of sprinting forward quickly on steel-springs after completing a new area, skipping the next area entirely. This action consumes 4% of his Sprint stacks, and requires at least 50 stacks to occur. When you reset the adventure, all stacks of Steelbones that Briv has gained convert into stacks of Sprint, which persist between resets until they are used by this ability.

    Note: if the chance of springing forward surpasses 100%, it is divided by 2 and becomes a 50%+ chance to spring forward 2 areas. Likewise for surpassing 200%, 300%, etc.
    • 100% / 2 -> 50% chance to skip 2 areas
    • 200% / 4 -> 50% chance to skip 3 areas
    • 300% / 6 -> 50% chance to skip 4 areas
    • If you skip a boss area in this way, the gems, chests, red jewels, etc. from it are collected automatically.
  • Healing Phlo — Briv's pet flumph Phlo appears next to Briv and telepathically stores healing power whenever Briv is hit. After 10 hits or 10 seconds, whichever comes first, Phlo heals all Champions in the party for 50% of the damage Briv took during that time. The 10 second timer only starts when Briv takes a hit and does not fire if the healing is triggered by taking 10 hits. It would start again at 10 seconds on the next hit after healing triggers.
  • Oath of Heroism — Briv increases the max health of all other Champions by 25% of his max health.

Specializations

  • MetalbornUnnatural Haste uses 20% less Sprint stacks whenever it activates.
  • Tempered Steel — Increase the effect of Netherese Steel by 100%.
  • Go With The Phlo — Increase the heal of Healing Phlo by 50%.

Ultimate Ability

  • Netherese Explosion — Briv forces all of his remaining Netherese Metal out of his body, shooting it in all directions in an arc in front of him, damaging enemies that it passes through. He then draws it back into himself, dealing double damage to enemies it hits on its way back to him.

V. Briv's Equipment



Slot 1: Global DPS
Slot 2: Max Health
Slot 3: Netherese Steel
Slot 4: Unnatural Haste
Slot 5: Ultimate Damage
Slot 6: Ultimate Cooldown

VI. Conclusion

Briv Steelmarrow is an absolute beast of a Champion, a savage paladin who can offer tanking, healing, and support, all in one package. We are excited to see how well he fits in to the Idle Champions meta. If you have feedback, let us know in a Community Q&A or Champion feedback post on the Idle Champions Subreddit, on the Steam forums, or on the Official Idle Champions Discord!

Idle Champions: Festival of Fools 2 
Posted in Idle Champions.

"What is the Festival of Fools", you ask?

Well, it's a celebration of feasting and foolishness observed by communities all up and down the Sword Coast. People play pranks, overeat, and overdrink as they celebrate reaching the end of winter.

But some folks take their pranks too far, and the wife of one prankster just told the Champions that her husband plans to prank a Frost Giant...

Festival of Fools 2 runs until Monday, April 1st, 2019 at 12:00pm PDT. Our latest Year Two Event introduces Rosie Beestinger, the Halfling Matriarch of the Beestinger family and Way of Shadow Monk, and brings back her adopted daughter, Strix Beestinger, the Tiefling 'Trash Witch' Sorcerer!

New Champion: Rosie Beestinger

Rosie Beestinger is a sassy DPS Champion. Her damage increases for each Champion in the formation younger than she is, and she catches and deflects incoming missiles.

Idle Champions Event: Festival of Fools 
Posted in Idle Champions.

After a such long and cold winter, the citizens Daggerford are eager to celebrate the Festival of Fools: a day of feasting, drinking, and general foolishness. People don brightly-colored and garish clothing, dancing in the street like court jesters and competing with one another to see who can pull off the most foolish (yet harmless) pranks.

During the festivities a concerned villager approaches the party and asks for help. She says that her husband's prank is to try and taunt a frost giant...

Festival of Fools is our ninth limited-time event for Idle Champions, which starts today, lasts until Tuesday, April 10th at noon PDT, and introduces Strix, the Tiefling Sorcerer!

New Champion: Strix

The Sorcerer known as Strix is from Sigil, the City of Doors at the center of the multiverse. Very little is known of Strix's heritage, even to herself, but it was recently discovered that she was a powerful member of the Skizzicks family, who long ago made a pact with Asmodeus, ruler of the Nine Hells, to become Tieflings.

Strix is careful, suspicious, and paranoid. She assumes the worst in everyone and is always ready to run away or hide. She lacks basic manners and maintains poor personal hygiene, exemplified by the collection of filthy oddities she hoards within her robes, including snacks which she refers to as "snicketty snooks."

As a child, Strix witnessed a shadowy creature slaughter her friends at the bakery where she worked, but was spared for unknown reasons. Her survivor's guilt drives her to try and help those in need, no matter the personal cost.

When you want to add Strix to your party, you can swap her with Jamilah.

  • Foolish Variance — Champions randomly do between 0.1% and 199.9% of their actual damage with each hit.

  • Persistent Foolishness — The Drunken Fool appears randomly in non-boss areas. Only one can be spawned at a time, but he has special abilities each time he appears.

  • Like Father Like Son — The farmer's son takes up a slot in the formation. He moves to a new slot every 25 areas. Every 15 seconds (in non-boss areas) the farmer's son foolishly summons a Frost Giant to attack the formation unless Strix is adjacent to him.
