- D&D 5th Edition -- The World of Zhaindaiv
**** UPDATE 29 April 2019: We're now back up to a full table, so the RSVPs are now closed. Soon that change in the future, it will be re-opened. If you have questions or comments, please don't hesitate to message me. Thank you. **** • What we'll do Welcome to Zhaindaiv, a world where there are no gods interfering with mortals, alignment is optional, and politically-motivated individuals are as dangerous as the Tainted creatures that regularly raid during Dark Moon. The Great War between “good and evil” happened 200 years ago, and the traditionally “evil” races lost. Today, nations of elves, dwarves, humans, and others skirmish and scheme with and against each other now that the son of the long-dead Emperor nears time to assume the throne. Reservations filled with orcs, goblins, and trolls continuously press against their borders, and seek the same representation as the free races. Monstrous creatures of chaos assault all the civilization on a monthly basis, which gives opportunities for adventurers to gain experience. And the mysterious Dragon Congress in the Free City of Conlodar sees a “bigger picture” of threats to the world both mundane and magical. Currently, the mysterious artifact known as "The Blackest Heart" has been defeated. The world races towards a period of chaos as Demons seek to breach their Infernal prison, a plague ravages the Giants Nation (already involved in a civil war), the Bugbears have begun another war of extermination, the Tarneesh refugees await the coming of the mysterious Dark Lady to return their civilization to glory, and the ancient vile race called the Carnifex seek to establish a beachhead here in their goal of universal destruction. In order to keep the plague from potentially affecting the other races, the Dragon Congress had decided they'll sterilize the entire Giants Nation. But a glimmer of hope has arisen which could stop the plague, but can the characters locate it in time before the dragons raze the Giants Nation? Zhaindaiv is a D&D 5th Edition “home brew” campaign which uses the “cinematic style” of old-school role-playing in a non-traditional environment. Most character classes from the core books are available. Psionics are strangely absent from the world. Even with no gods, Clerics are still powerful because their miracles are fueled by their personal faith. Many ruins of fallen empires provide adventuring opportunities, as well as working for any of the nations of the world. As the time draws near for the Emperor’s Regent to hand control over to the Emperor’s son, many would like to have their influence increased or their status changed, and players could decide to be on any side of those conflicts. Some notable differences from other campaign worlds is that the “common” tongue is Elvish, silver is the standard coin of the realm, and there’s a cosmopolitan awareness of other worlds due to regular visits from Spelljamming vessels (as well as a expedite population from the devastated world of Mystara). Playable races could be the ones native to the world, or an expatriate from another planet. Each of the major races control their own distinct territory, and have cultural differences that distinguish them each other. Most races that are native to Zhaindaiv are open for use, but players are encouraged to be an expatriate in order to fully enjoy the experience of the flavor of the world. Adventures can alternate from thinking and role-play heavy to combat-intensive, depending on the choices the players make. • What to bring Paper, dice, pencils, the usual. • Important to know As this is a “home brew” campaign, it is not part of Adventurers League, and has a “rules light” style to support the “cinematic style” of high drama. No use of battle grid. While there technically is "no alignment," characters need to be on the side of Law and/or Good. Current party level is 10th. No party-killers.

- Nerd Nite Austin
We all know that learning is more fun when you’re drinking with friends and colleagues. Thus, Nerd Nite is a monthly event held in more than 50 cities across the globe during which several folks give 18-21-minute fun-yet-informative presentations across all disciplines – while the audience drinks along. And there are often bands, acrobats, trivia, and other shenanigans as well. Imagine learning about everything from math feuds or the science of the Simpsons, to the genealogy of Godzilla or debunking beer myths. Fun, right? As nerds and non-nerds like to say, Nerd Nite Is Like the Discovery Channel™…with Beer! This month we ask the question: Shall We Play a Game?! Come hear about the history of women’s soccer, intricate details about playing the game, and how you can play with magic! Well, okay, maybe not actual magic – but magic wands! Riddikulus! “Wand-Ring Wands – Awesome DIY Magic Wands!” by Jonathan Leistiko It started out as a simple prop for friends. Now it’s an open-source framework for DIY magic wands. The goal: Magic wands that wirelessly communicate and engage in real-time spell duels! Jonathan is a professional webmaster, semi-professional board game designer, and hobbyist maker. Making things and sharing them rocks! *** “From Game to Life Strategy: Learning & Loving El Juego Bonito” by Chris Benevich Chris will share Soccer 101 terminology, common play strategies, and what people can watch for as budding fans and coaches. After lettering at university, Chris played for the only travel select league for amateur women in northern Illinois at the time, the Illinois Women’s Soccer League. She dabbled in coaching and refereeing and now enjoys cutting it up on the dance floor in her spare time. *** “The Future of Soccer Is Female” by Dave Brett Wasser Throughout most of the 20th century women’s soccer struggled for an audience. That all changed in 1999 when the Women’s World Cup became the premier sporting event on the planet for female athletes. David will show highlights of the greatest moments in the history of women’s soccer, and preview this year’s tournament, which runs from June 7 to July 7. Dave Brett Wasser is a soccer historian and soccer video archivist. He has been featured in the New York Times, National Public Radio, The Austin American-Statesman, and The Athletic.
