Worlds Apart is a fifth edition D&D adventure show
following the interwoven stories of two groups of heroes divided across parallel worlds: the war-torn Republic of Auredane and the post-apocalyptic Empire of Tenebrae. New episodes are posted on our YouTube channel every other Monday. 

The Cast
Your Dungeon Master James J. Haeck is the co-author of Waterdeep: Dragon Heist and the Tal'Dorei Campaign Setting. In this show, he weaves a story for six of his best friends, split into two parties of three heroes each. We've been playing D&D together for years, and now we want to bring the action, emotion, and silliness of our home game to your screen, complete with rich worldbuilding and complex characters created by a professional game designer. 

The Characters

Mara is a warrior, mother of three, and the leader of the Skycallers, a tribe of nomads in the inhospitable Velashi Desert. She draws upon the spirit of the desert wolf, using her formidable strength and speed to protect her people, and all people of Auredane.

As a young elven child, Zephyr was abandoned at a temple of Ki'iva, goddess of nature and freedom. Now they are devoted to the service of Ki'iva, sworn to defend the natural beauty of Auredane and protect those who cannot protect themselves.

Astrid Sunglow is on a quest to save the world and become a legendary hero. Astrid's pact with an angel of Elo, the god of light and life, grants her divine powers and the ability to summon a magical weapon, but her optimism and ideals of justice are all her own. 

Tykko grew up on the streets of Oma-Vel, capital of Auredane, until he was taken in by a trio of elven refugees, who offered him a home and a family. Now he fights to protect and provide for his adoptive parents.

Crown-Glory Fortune Hallelujah, or Crownah to her friends and admirers, has been a gladiator, a soldier, a deserter, and a champion. With her magic cello Sudden Death, she propels herself headlong into glory so all the world will know her name.

Aserannon Etainsdóttir is a half-orc cleric of Nerugal, the god of memory and the dead. Blessed with extraordinary healing powers, Sera has devoted her abilities to strengthening the balance between life and death.
