Dropout TV has released the next campaign for Dimension 20, its Dungeon & Dragons show. Called A Court of Fey & Flowers, the new campaign sees Aabria Iyengar once again reign as Dungeon Master, weaving a tale of the complex politics of a Fey court.
A Court of Fey & Flowers premieres August 3 at 4 PM PT / 7 PM ET on Dropout.tv, and the season will run for 10 episodes. Like most campaigns in Dimension 20, A Court of Fey & Flowers will use Dungeons & Dragons Fifth Edition, but will also include rules from Storybrewers’ Jane Austen-inspired tabletop roleplaying game, Good Society.
Good Society plays a more collaborative role than DnD’s often confrontational combat, featuring storylines closer to those seen in Downton Abbey or Bridgerton. There is less direct combat against your enemies; Instead, you must work within the system of high society – exploiting your connections, relying on your family’s influence and spreading rumors to achieve your secret goals.
“There’s something about the mechanics and how elegantly they’re written in Good Society that lets you get down to speed on that kind of storytelling,” Iyengar told Polygon. “It shows you specific ways in which your character manifests itself. A rumor phase and a letter writing phase, and reputation markers and a reputation economy. [I] So was, so happy to combine [that] in the story.”
Iyengar is a popular and much-loved face in the Dimension 20 community, having made his debut as a player in Pirates of Leviathan. He would then return as the DM of Misfits and Magic, and then once more as a player in The Seven. Beyond Dimension 20, Iyengar is one of the most talented voices and storytellers in DND space and tabletop RPGs–he’s appeared in Critical Roll, The Adventure Zone, Vampire: The Masquerade – New York by Night, Roll20 and many more.
For A Court of Fey & Flowers, Iyenga will be joined by veteran Dimension 20 players Brennan Lee Mulligan (executive producer, writer, and Lead Dungeon Master of Dimension 20), Lou Wilson, and Emily Axford, as well as newcomers Surena Marie, Oscar Montoya, Omar Najam. Six players will portray various fey who have come together to celebrate Bloom, an event that delivers a much-needed dose of magic to the Feywild and other realms. When Bloom is threatened, the six Fae must band together to save her, while each pursues their own selfish goals.
A Court of Fey & Flowers is Dimension 20’s fifteenth campaign, and the fourth by a DM who is not Brennan Lee Mulligan. The other three campaigns are Misfits and Magic (Campaign 10), Shrike Week (Campaign 12), and Coffin Run (Campaign 14). Dimension 20 usually features collegiate talent or their friends from the wider tabletop roleplaying community.
