Yes folks, you heard it correctly, today Neverwinter announces Respen’s Marvelous Game, which is a brand new event especially for fans of the meta-gameplay experiences. Starting from April 1st, the the tabletop game inside the game will be a digital version of the tabletop game based upon the real world tabletop game that the digital game is currently based upon. I know, what a tongue-twister.
Respen’s Marvelous Game is an event starring the mischievous mage Respen Durothil. He calls upon all the heroes of Neverwinter and Protector’s Enclave to give his game a try. Sitting at the table with fellow heroes of Neverwinter, are Seargeant Knox, Makos, Celeste, Xuna, Rhix. Players will then proceed to move their own miniature version of themselves across one of two paper maps set in dungeons and swamp settings. Players have use of the original multi-sided die, a grid paper, some cardboard dividers and last but not least, your own imagination. Players are to save an elven princess or clear out a dungeon, with the dungeon master being Respen himself, narrating you through the game as you go. Sounds like fun right?
As for the rewards, players are instigated with prizes and tabletop-friendly snacks, players can find the game in the Driftwood Tavern in Protector’s Enclave if they want to take part of the marvelous game. Earn multisided Crystal Dice from foes and chests alike and you can purchase useful special event items lasting up till April 4th.
If you’re looking for a new companion, you can also earn the exclusive Green Slime Companion and a stat-boosting Adorable Pocket Pet. As for the snacks, players can taste the spicy treats known as Lliira’s Fare, the yellowish Lathander’s Dew and the sweet chewy Neverwintian Red Veins. Sound delicious to me and perfect for April Fools’ Day!
