Idle Champions: The Great Modron March 2 
Posted in Idle Champions.

Of all the planes in the multiverse, there is only one of pure law: Mechanus, home plane of the modron race and their supreme ruler, Primus.

While the clockwork modrons themselves seem strange enough, what is more puzzling is how once every 17 cycles, they journey by the thousands on a grand tour of the cosmos. Each time they take the exact same route through the planes — except this time. This time, for reasons unknown, the Great Modron March is headed for the city of Waterdeep...

The Great Modron March 2 introduces Qillek Ad Khollar, the Aarakocra Bard & Cleric played by Tom Hazell on High Rollers, and brings back Evelyn Marthain, Human Paladin of Lathandar. Players will have until Monday, June 3rd, 2019 at 12:00pm PDT, to unlock them!

New Champion: Qillek Ad Khollar

    Qillek is timid, meek and nervous, being a comparably young character in the party and thrown into a world he doesn’t understand with no wing to fly him out of a bad situation. His charisma, wit, and superiority ripped away when flying through the Valley of the Storms, taking his left wing and arm away but introducing him to H’esper, who gave him dark visions to push him forward. Inside him is an envious amount of courage and a stable sense of logic when things get dire, which has led other party members to consider him their leader. He doesn’t agree with the idea, but he’s not ready to let his friends down.
Qillek is a Support Champion capable of buffing allies while also debuffing enemies. He casts Prayer of Healing to heal the formation and Bless to boost their damage. When you want to add Qillek to your formation, you can swap him with Calliope (Slot 5).

Returning Champion: Evelyn Marthain

    Caring, motherly, and endlessly optimistic, Evelyn has adventured across the realms as part of the Waffle Crew with Strix, Diath, and Paultin for many years. She's always first in battle, thanks to her flying boots, and will always take a hit to protect others. Short, yet tough, her devotion to Lathander has seen her through many perilous situations.
Evelyn is a powerful Tank and Support Champion. She buffs her allies with her Divine Prayer, Channel Divinity, Steadfast Might, and Conduit of the Light abilities. When you want to add Evelyn to your party, you can swap her with Asharra (Slot 6).

Year Two Variants

  • Division — Every time a Modron is killed (including bosses) it splits into two copies of a Modron one level lower on the Modron hierarchy. You must kill all the split Modrons in boss Areas.

  • Machine Learning — The Modorns have decided to stop bashing their melee weapons against the Champions with no results. All melee Modrons now throw gears at Champions while at range. Champions struck by four gears are stunned for 15 seconds.

  • Messenger of Hope — Qillek has a dream that his god has granted him the power to overcome The Great Modron March. Qillek begins the adventure in the formation and cannot be moved. Only Champions within two slots of Qillek can deal any damage.

Year One Variants

  • The Neverending March — Every time a Modron is killed in non-boss areas it shuts down for five seconds and then comes back to life with full health.

  • (Hu)man vs. Machine — All human Champions get a buff called "The Human Spirit" which increases their damage by 5% in each area (stacking multiplicatively).

  • Charge Into Battle — Enemies move extremely fast and deal massive damage to everyone except Evelyn. Evelyn starts the adventure at level 1 and in the front slot of the formation.

BW2: Day(s) of Forests Limited Time Quest 
Posted in Bush Whacker 2.

A representative from the United Villages of Bushwhackia is facilitating tree planting for the Day of Forests! Talk with them in the Commons to get started.

Once you accept the Day(s) of Forests quest, you'll be able to accept repeating Tree Planting quests! For completing each Tree Planting quest, you'll be rewarded with 10 Tree Tokens, and can go tree planting again after an 8 hour cooldown.

You can also get Tree Tokens by trading in Pine Beetles, which you can occasionally find with the Day(s) of Forests quest active.

You can spend your Tree Tokens in the Ye Forest Awareness Arboretum on unique custom and ranch items. It will be challenging to collect enough Tree Tokens to buy every item in the store. If you can manage it, tree planting twice each day should get you enough tokens for most of the store items.

Tree planting ends at noon on Monday April 1st, after which you can still spend tokens until noon on Tuesday April 2nd.

Redeem this code before noon on Monday April 1st for 5 free Super Blueberry Seeds: DAYO-FFOR-ESTS-2019
