Not to be confused with the world of the same name that the campaign is set in.

Aerois is the title for High Rollers D&D's second Dungeons & Dragons campaign. The campaign began on July 1, 2018.

The setting for the new campaign was revealed by Mark in the final episode of the Lightfall campaign. In the 10 days running up to the launch on 1 July, the High Rollers plan to release videos revealing new pieces of information about the series and the characters they will play. Dedicated High Rollers Twitch and YouTube channels have already been announced, allowing High Rollers to separate itself from the Yogscast Live Twitch and YouTube channels. Although High Rollers will continue to be streamed on Yogscast Live as usual, VODs will be uploaded to the High Rollers YouTube channel only. The new campaign is available as a podcast on a variety of platforms, too.

Aerois has been confirmed to be seperate from the world the Lightfall campaign took place in.

There are 2 sponsors for this season of High Rollers, DnD Beyond and Brilliant.

Main CharactersEdit

Dungeon Master - (Mark Hulmes)Edit

MarkDM

Mark takes the role of Dungeon Master for the series, using the D&D 5th edition rules, albeit with a few minor tweaks of his own such as swapping out dark vision for low-light vision, and doubling a single dice roll when a critical occurs where normally 2 separate die would be rolled. Mark also custom-made Aerois, the world specially designed for the Aerois campaign.

Aila - (Katie Morrison)Edit

Aila
Wikiquote
"Aila is a Wild Elf Barbarian and member of the Airdetithe clan. Armed with her warhammer, the Howling Gale, she journeys to find her true clan and understand the source of her unnatural storm powers.[1]"

Lucius Elenasto - (Chris Trott)Edit

Lucius
Wikiquote
"A sheltered Daddy's boy, living in a rich noble estate atop the floating city of Gusthaven. As a trained Arcane Chromat Lucius pulls upon the very colour of life to cast spells and thanks to his heterochromia, can augment acid and cold spells.[1]"

Nova V'Ger - (Kim Richards)Edit

Nova
Wikiquote
"Nova is a happy-go-lucky scholar who dreams of travelling into space. She travels with Tiangong; a mysterious sword that gives her the powers of a Hexblade Warlock. Fiercely intelligent, but not very world wise![1]"

Qillek Ad Khollar - (Tom Hazel)Edit

Qillek
Wikiquote
"The one-armed Bard/Cleric and now divination wizard/cleric Qillek Ad Khollar prefers to stay far from the battle, choosing to instead support his allies with healing abilities and defensive boons granted to him by his God H'espa."

Sentry - (Rhiannon Gower)Edit

Sentry is a proud Guardian, tasked with protecting the Royal Family of Solwynn. Until a cruel fate violently tore her from her home and the people she loved. Now tasked with discovering and preserving the knowledge of her forgotten world, before her time runs out.

The World of AeroisEdit

Main article: Aerois

Created by Mark Hulmes, Aerois is a world of floating cities, dangerous and wild countryside, interplanetary magic and alien technology.

In a typical D&D campaign, the world is based on the planes of existence where the material plane is the nexus of the other planes. In the Aerois campaign, Aerois is depicted as a planet (the material plane) within a system of other planets and celestial bodies (the other planes). For example, Mark describes the Plane of Fire as a planet possibly with fiery volcanic lands, while the Shadowfell could be a barren moon that now house ruins of a fallen kingdom. Starships and planar magic are used as interplanetary travel.[1]

Being a homebrewed campaign, Mark have introduced several new materials and changed some game mechanics. You may view the implementation here.
