Idle Champion Spotlight: Alyndra Sarrbarand 
Posted in Idle Champions.

"I Have Foreseen This Moment..." the serene elf said evaluating the infinite possibilities of all possible futures."Remember my friends, you are blessed."

Alyndra Sarrbarand joins her companions Avren, Penelope, Freely, and Briv Steelmarrow from D&D Beyond's Silver & Steel & Beyond Heroes, and now Heroes of the Planes, and is delighted to meet the aquaintance of her new companions on the Idle Champions roster, with Festival of Fools 4.

Working with Jen to bring Alyndra to Idle Champions was an absolute delight to capture the essence of Alyndra and bring the most authentic representation of her to Idle Champions. She is accompanied by her two familiars, Griff and Grant, the Baby Blue Dragon. We are deeply touched that Jen would think of us to honor Grant's legacy and we are privileged to work with her and the Grant Imahara STEAM Foundation.

It's time for the latest Idle Champion Spotlight.

I. Lorekeeper of Rime Spiro, Kinscribe of Clan Monkeymouse



    Alyndra Alexandria Garanahil Sarrbarand is known by many names: Lorekeeper of Rime Spiro, Kinscribe of Clan Monkeymouse, Daughter of Oblivion, Fate Changer, Knight of Wonder and Captivation...and apologetic offspring of Avren & Sofieus.

Alyndra is a Support Champion whose powerful portents increase the damage of those adjacent to her. Her companion Griff judges their enemies, further increasing the damage they take due to her portents. When you want to add Alyndra to your formation, you can swap her with Asharra (Slot 6).

II. Alyndra's Stats

Race: Elf Alignment: True Neutral
Class: Wizard/Cleric Gender: Female
Age: 168 Affiliation: Heroes of the Planes

STR: 8 DEX: 14 CON: 14
INT: 18 WIS: 14 CHA: 11

Role: Support

Eligible for Patrons: Vajra Safahr, Strahd von Zarovich

Slot: 6, (Asharra)


III. Alyndra's Design

We were thrilled to work with Jen Kretchmer, a producer, writer, actor, streamer and disability advocate. You may recognize her from Beyond Heroes, Silver & Steel, and forthcoming Heroes of the Planes, and we are thrilled to announce that not only is Alyndra joining Idle Champions, but Jen Kretchmer will be playing her as a member of the cast of Idle Champions Presents: A Fool's Errand.

A Divination Wizard, Alyndra buffs adjacent Champions with her Portent ability guiding their attacks and increasing their damage. This ability is heightened when the adjacent Champion is one of Alyndra's adventuring companions of the Heroes of the Planes affiliation. Griff, Alyndra's very judgy owl familiar, is never far from her side and marks unworthy enemies for her when she's unsure if it's a cultural misunderstanding. Her equipment is made up of wonderful ties to her past and future, and the close relationship she shares with her adventuring companions, and of course, Logic and Reason, her sword and spellbook-mace, respectively.

IV. Alyndra's Abilities

Basic Attack

  • Mind Spike — Alyndra reaches into the mind of a random enemy, dealing damage and slowing the enemy by 50% for 3 seconds.

Formation Abilities

  • Portent — Every 30 seconds, Alyndra randomly chooses (up to) two adjacent Champions and peers into their futures, helping guide their attacks and increasing their damage by 100%.
  • Heroes of the Planes — If Portent is applied to a Champion under the effect of certain Heroes of the Planes Champions' abilities, those effects are increased in power:
    • AvrenMirror Image effects on the Portented Champion +100%.
    • Freely — Unlucky For Them +100% for each Portented Champion affected by Luck of Yondalla(stacking multiplicatively).
    • PenelopeChwinga Mask: Tools for the Job Charm +100% for each Portented Champion affected by Chwinga Mask (stacking multiplicatively).
    • OrkiraOrkira will be receiving his Heroes of the Planes buff in a later update.
    • BrivBriv will be receiving his Heroes of the Planes affiliation and buff in a later update.
  • Brows of Judgement — Griff, Alyndra's owl companion, sits on Alyndra's shoulder and judges enemies as they spawn. They have a 25% chance to judge normal enemies as unworthy, and a 100% chance to judge bosses as unworthy. For each living unworthy normal enemy, Portent's base buff is increased by 100%, stacking additively. Each living boss increases Portent's base buff by 400%. Unworthy enemies have an overlay that counts as a debuff for the purposes of Alyndra's ultimate but has no other effect.

Specializations

  • Expansive VisionPortent now applies to 3 random adjacent Champions instead of 2.
  • Extra Judgy — Double Griff's chance to judge enemies as unworthy with Brows of Judgement, and increases the buff by 100% as well.

Ultimate Ability

  • I Have Foreseen This — Alyndra slips into a trance and foresees the death of all the formation's enemies. For the next 30 seconds, all enemies (regardless of whether or not they spawn after the Ultimate starts) take extra damage equal to the total Portent buff being given (cumulatively).

V. Alyndra's Epic Equipment



Slot 1: Global DPS
Slot 2: Global DPS
Slot 3: Portent
Slot 4: Heroes of the Planes
Slot 5: Brows of Judgement
Slot 6: Ultimate Cooldown

VI. Conclusion

We are delighted Alyndra is joining her companions on the Idle Champions roster and we are excited to see how well she fits into the meta. If you have feedback, let us know in a Community Q&A or Champion feedback post on the Idle Champions Subreddit, on the Steam forums, or on the Official Idle Champions Discord!

Idle Champions: Feast of the Moon 4 
Posted in Idle Champions.

During Feast of the Moon, residents of the Sword Coast pay homage to the deeds of legendary heroes by visiting their crypts and graves.

When the Champions arrive at The Crypt of Legends, they find hordes of undead crawling up from the depths. Something is making the dead heroes rise, and the answer will require a descent into the depths to discover the cause...

Feast of the Moon 4 introduces Penelope "Half-Pint", Circle of the Moon Druid and Warlock from D&D Beyond's Silver & Steel & Beyond Heroes, and brings back Sentry, the Warforged Paladin (Oath of the Ancients) from High Rollers: Aerois and Vlahnya Um'vairar, the Eladrin Bard/Wizard. Players have until Monday, November 23rd at 12PM Pacific to complete their Feast of the Moon 4 unlocks and objectives.

She has the heart of a true hero and will always stand by her friends until she goes into shrub mode of course.

Penelope's Abilities

Penelope is a naive, young, happy go lucky halfling who just wants to be your friend. She is a Support, Gold Find, and Healing Champion who buffs Champions based on their role(s) and alignment, and she does it all with a skip in her step!

With Have You Met My Friends, Penelope tags enemies she can't kill so her friends can finish the job. Chwinga Mask allows her to call chwingas to her aid. While enemies are attacking, Penelope panics and dons the mask. A Chwinga friend appears on her shoulder and grants charms to adjacent Champions based on their tags. Tanks will heal a percentage of health every second. Support, Healer, and Gold Find champions will buff Global Damage. Story Time augments Chwinga Mask, based on how efficiently her friends are killing enemies.

Her specializations focus on her ability to make friends with everyone, buffing Have You Met My Friends by increasing the damage of the formation based on the alignment on the Good-Evil axis. Her second specialization augments her basic attack to include an additional terrain changing effect. Minor Eruption adds a small radius of area of effect damage, leaving difficult terrain underneath her enemies. Hey Batter Batter increases her knockback by four times against non-boss enemies and her damage is increased by 200%. Her ultimate has her casting Erupting Earth, creating difficult terrain to slow and wound enemies.

III. Penelope's Design

It's always a joy to work with a passionate creator to bring their character to life as a Champion in our game, and working with D&D Beyond's Hope LaVelle was no exception, and working with her is just as delightful as the character she portrays.

Penelope is a naive, young, happy go lucky halfling who just wants to be your friend. She is a Support, Gold Find, and Healing Champion who buffs Champions based on their role(s) and alignment, and she does it all with a skip in her step!

With Have You Met My Friends, Penelope tags enemies she can't kill so her friends can finish the job. Chwinga Mask allows her to call chwingas to her aid. While enemies are attacking, Penelope panics and dons the mask. A Chwinga friend appears on her shoulder for the duration of this effect. The Chwinga grants charms to adjacent Champions based on their tags. Tanks will heal a percentage of health every second. Support, Healer, and Gold Find champions will buff Global Damage. Story Time augments Chwinga Mask, based on how efficiently her friends (Champions within 2 slots) are killing enemies.

Her specializations focus on her ability to make friends with everyone, buffing Have You Met My Friends by increasing the damage of the formation based on the alignment on the Good-Evil axis.

Her second specialization augments her basic attack to include an additional terrain changing effect. Minor Eruption adds a small radius of area of effect damage, leaving difficult terrain underneath her enemies. Hey Batter Batter increases her knockback by four times against non-boss enemies and her damage is increased by 200%.

Her ultimate has her casting Erupting Earth, creating difficult terrain to slow and wound enemies.



IV. Penelope's Abilities

Basic Attack

  • Go Away — Penelope jumps out and hits the closest enemy with her quarterstaff, dealing damage and knocking it back slightly.

Formation Abilities

  • Have You Met My Friends — Whenever Penelope attacks an enemy and doesn't kill it, for the next 30 seconds, all Champions deal 100% additional damage against them.
  • Chwinga Mask — Whenever the formation is under attack, Penelope dons her chwinga mask, calling an elemental friend to her aid. It sits on her shoulder while her mask is on. All Champions adjacent to Penelope gain the following charm(s) based on their tags. Charms last as long as the formation is under attack and then for 10 seconds afterward, persisting through area transitions.
    • Healing Charm (Tank Champions) — Penelope heals affected Champions for 30 HP every second. Once Penelope unlocks Story Time, the amount healed every second is increased by a percentage based on 2x the number of Story Time stacks she has.
      • 0 stacks of Story Time = +0% = 30 HP / sec
      • 10 stacks of Story Time = +20% = 36 HP / sec
      • 25 stacks of Story Time = +50% = 45 HP / sec
    • Tools for the Job Charm (Healing, Support, or Gold Find Champions) — Penelope increases the damage of all Champions by 100% for each Champion affected by this charm. This effect stacks multiplicatively and buffs apply to the post-stack value.
      Once Penelope unlocks Story Time, whenever she has more than 15 stacks of Story Time, this effect also increases the party's gold find by 10% of the total buff caused by this charm (including buffs).
    Champions can only gain each charm once even if they have multiple tags.
  • Story Time — Each time a Champion within 2 slots of Penelope kills an enemy, add a stack of Story Time. Story Time stacks are capped at 25. The stacks of Story Time affect both charms given by Chwinga Mask. Every time you change areas, the stacks of Story Time are reduced by half, rounded down.

  • Hey Batter Batter — Penelope's base attack's knockback is now four times as effective against non-boss enemies and her damage is increased by 200%.

Ultimate Ability

  • Erupting Earth — A fountain of churned earth and stone erupt in the enemies' path (centered on the nearest enemy), dealing AOE damage in a large radius and creating difficult terrain that lasts for 30 seconds.
