A bit over 2 years ago the Nerdarchy crew got together and playtested the blood hunter class for fifth edition Dungeons & Dragons. We had a blast playing high-level D&D characters while checking out this third party character class by Matt Mercer of Critical Role.
For those of you who are not familiar with him, Matt Mercer has done a few nerdy thing recently.
He is the Dungeon Master in the Geek & Sundry web series Critical Role, along with several other voice actors. The show’s first campaign went on for over 100 episodes until its epic conclusion, with numerous one-shots and special events on the way there. Critical Role’s new campaign just started last night, Jan. 11, 2018. New episodes are live streamed Thursday night at 7 p.m. pacific on Twitch and Project Alpha. He has a campaign book called Critical Role: Tal’Dorei Campaign Setting. He also does voice acting, among other things.

Greetings nerds, geeks, and gamers of all kinds, Nate the Nerdarch here and I wanted to take you on a walkthrough of nerdy RPG shirts while letting you know about one of our latest sponsors*, ArmorClass10.com.
I have been wearing some of their nerd apparel, and gaming t shirts for men, throughout the past month or so and I am pleased with the quality so I felt it was fair to mention them here. They also have nerdy graphic tees for women (as in women’s fitted, or v neck ) available as well.
You may find all of the available sizes, styles, and designs over on the website, ArmorClass10
Greetings everyone, Nate the Nerdarch here with my first ever sponsored post. For it we are taking a look at one of the newer RPGs to enter the market, Triniton.
For those of you who are not familiar with it, Triniton is a role playing game set in a world created by the author Christian Alhin. Some of fantasy media that he says inspired him is the works of Astrid Lindgren, the Game of Thrones Series, and the video game trilogy Mass Effect. I can definitely see their influence while I read through the Triniton RPG, in a good way.
If I compare this to other RPGs that I am familiar with I would say this resembles parts of the dungeons and dragons setting of Planescape, which I hold in high regard.
Greetings, Nate the Nerdarch here, and I wanted to let you know of a trio of artists headed for a cruise this January. Some of the crew from Guardians of the Galaxy 2 will be there on the Fan2Sea comic con cruise 2016 (well it sails in January 2017 but you better book your cabin spot before the new year if you want to insure that you get it).
Nerdarchy will also be there and we are excited to see them there. We would love to see you there as well so we are running a sweepstakes to win a free cabin, want to see how to enter, click here. If you want to book your cabin spot click here and use “nerdarchy” as a promo code for 10% off.
The Eye of the Beholder movie promises to be a nostalgia inducing trip through the stories, influences, and history of the art that inspired decades of Dungeon & Dragon players.
For those of you not getting the title the eyes of the beholder meaning originally comes from the Greeks (like most of everything else) and it speaks of how everyone sees beauty differently, it is subjective.
A Beholder, a terrible aberrant creature in Dungeons & Dragons, ironically has many eyes but does not see beauty anywhere, not even in others of its kind. It only sees itself as beautiful and perfect.
It exists as a strange twisting of the original idiom. Pretty deep for a guy goofing around making up monsters and rolling platonic solids with numbers on them.
I have always liked the D&D art and I am particularly impressed with the level of art in D&D 5e. From the small taste of the film below I am super excited to view the art of Dungeons and Dragons through the eye of this beholder.
Greetings, Nate the Nerdarch here with an update on a group of guests that will be joining us on the Fan2Sea comic con cruise 2016 (well it sails in January 2017 but you better book your cabin spot before the new year if you want to insure that you get it).

Nerdarchy Nerdy Contest and Biggest Give-A-Way Ever! (Fan2Sea Nerdcation)
Greetings Everyone, I am extremely excited to go on this upcoming cruise. I have never been on a cruise and this theme convinced me that I have too be on it. Dave and I are really interested in seeing as many nerdarchists there as we can possibly get to come aboard with us. To start that off right we are holding a contest in which Nerdarchy will be giving away a full cabin!
I know some of you are saying give me, give me, give me, I needz cabinz!
Or you can book now using the special discount code “Nerdarchy” for a 10% discount. Don’t worry if you win the free cabin you’ll get your booking refunded.
I understand, but since there is only one cabin for this give away there has to be some way in which everyone who wants to get a shot at winning it, can participate. Below is how you can get a few chances to join Nerdarchy, and a hoard of other people (many of which are well known in the nerd and geek culture), on a nerdcation the likes of which I have never seen.
Greetings Everyone. I am really excited to talk about my new adventure that I will be hosting on the 31st. It is a live play event that will be able to view on Youtube. I have not hosted a live game play before but luckily the rest...
Greetings Everyone, I have been playing several early access games and wanted to bring one of them to your attention.
Ark Survival Evolved is one of my favorite games that isn’t technically out yet.
The company is doing an early access release for this game. What that means is that they charge a reduced price for a game somewhere and players can play a game that isn’t out yet.
What is the catch?
The catch is that the game isn’t finished yet.
The company may be figuring out game balance (level system, damage amounts for attacks) or making a system within the game more complex (more crafting, quests, areas, etc), or something else that we are not aware of yet.
It is basically a game somewhere between beta and a finished product.
Greetings everyone, Nate the Nerdarch here. I love tabletop gaming, science, and a plethora of other nerdy things. But what I really have been
grooving on lately, like it is my job, is video game play.
My newest job over at the Nerdarchy is video game player. That is right, for at least 2 hours a day I am required to hang out on my computer, after my night job, button mashing until I fall asleep. Like this video game play below.
Greetings Everyone, Nate the Nerdarch here from Nerdarchy- For Nerds, by Nerds.
I wanted to greet you all in my standard way that I begin my gameplays and solo video. Since I want to highlight a bonus video I made for my Sword Coast Legends gameplay series it seemed appropriate.
By bonus video I mean the fourth video of the day!!! We are a bit crazy over on the youtubes when it comes to laying down the uploads.
The video is all about going in depth on character creation as it pertains to the class skill groups and goes through a review of the races and classes in general.
Greetings from Nate the Nerdarch. I am very pleased to get such a warm reception for my gameplay videos on our youtube channel. Before today I have played some Star Wars Battlefront and Dragon Age Inquisition. Today I am rolling out Nerdarchy's Sword Coast Adventurer's Guide to Sword...
This would be more elegant if not for my annoyance with the gamers and their feelings of entitlement, There is a need for a realistic perspective on Star Wars Battlefront and the Star Wars franchise in general. This is only the beginning. I will probably...
Greetings Nerdarchist, Nate the Nerdarch here back from a baby break (my son Elliot was born Oct 27th). What would any sensible nerd do after such a break from the internet? Well, one of the first things I did to get back on track was to visit...
Recently Nerdarchy shot a video about the level of risk and death in games and posed the question,"Should a Game Master kill their players?". Check out the video below. Hopefully it will stir similar questions in your mind, about your game master playing style, as it...
