THE Nerdarchy DREAM TEAM
In 1992, the United States of America decided it would claim the Gold in Olympic Men’s Basketball. In order to accomplish this goal, the USA built the Dream Team, a select group of king ballers carefully constructed to get the job done.
- Power Forward – Karl Malone
- Shooting Guard – Michael Jordan
- Center – Patrick Ewing
- Small Forward – Larry Bird
- Waterboy – Ed Rittnaf
In 2017, a subset of the Nerdarchy staff writers decided it would write a stellar free Dungeons & Dragons 5E adventure for the Nerdarchy community. In order to accomplish this goal, the Nerdarchy Force of Will built the Dream Team, a select group of noble scrawlers carefully constructed to get the job done.
- Power Scribe – Megan R. Miller
- Guard Penman – Joshua Brickley

- Pencil Sharpener – J. Scott Garibay
Felicia Day (creator of The Guild, and the Supernatural actress who played Charlie Bradbury, “The Girl with the Dungeons and Dragons Tattoo“) launched Geek and Sundry in 2012. Since then the YouTube powerhouse channel has created thousands of entertaining nerd culture videos and articles with Star Trek actor Wil Wheaton helming Geek and Sundry’s most engaging content. For the fifth year in a row, Geek and Sundry is heralding International Tabletop Day. In honor of Felicia Day’s steadfast support of nerd culture, Geek and Sundry’s tireless nerd content generation and the spirit of International Tabletop Day, a subset of the Nerdarchy staff writers is creating “Floshar’s Fate,”
“Floshar’s Fate” is a free Dungeons & Dragons 5E adventure set in Faerun, written for a group of four 8th Level Player Characters.

CALL FOR HELP
If you are a visual artist, we could really use your help bringing the characters above to life. We need black and white drawings (penned, ideally) for each of the characters, completed by March 21, 2017. Since our adventure will be free, unfortunately there is no payment for the requested work, so this would just be a Nerdarchy fan who is also a visual artist helping out of the goodness of their heart. If you are interested in drawing any of the characters above, please visit the “Floshar’s Fate” Facebook Page here and let us know which character you will be covering (so that we don’t get multiple versions of the same character). Thank you very much.
The subset of the Nerdarchy staff writers working on “Floshar’s Fate” are having a lot of fun building this adventure, and we are all hoping to make it great for you.
