This week, my body succumbed to the virus that shall not be named. So, I needed some comfort that only D&D could provide. Lucky for me, I still had two unfinished episodes of Dimension 20: A Court of Fey & Flowers to finish. When I say that this was one of my favorite side quests, I am not exaggerating. Iyengar’s makeup was on point, the plot was refreshing, and the cast’s synergy was flawless. So, with that in mind, let’s get into it!
Before I can give you a rundown of the plot, here is a table consisting of the cast members.
|Aabria Iyengar||Game Master|
|Brennan Lee Mulligan||Major K. P. Hob|
|Emily Axford||Lady Chirp Featherfowl|
|Lou Wilson||Lord Squak Airavis|
|Omar Najam||Prince Andhera|
|Oscar Montoya||Delloso de la Rue|
|Surena Marie||Gwyndolin Thistle-hop|
The Story of Dimension 20: A Court of Fey & Flowers
The Pack of Pixies found themselves members of the Feywild, all hailing from different courts. As members of the Court, they must partake in the events of this year’s Bloom. Each with its own goals and aspirations. First, Lady Chirp Featherfowl and her cousin, Lord Squak Airavis, are typically known for their partying and antics. However, their grandfather is looking down on them (literally), ensuring they are benevolent birds.
Second, Prince Andhera, formerly known as Pillar Boy, is looking to reinvent himself. He is older at this Bloom and hopes to shed his former persona. Major K. P. Hob is also looking to regain honor for the Goblin Court. Viscountess Grabalba, his charge, was recently courted by Prince Apollo; however, he backed out of the marriage. Next, Gwyndolin Thistle-hop, sister of the Blue Fairy from Pinocchio, keeps her aspirations close to her chest. Finally, Delloso de la Rue oversees the coordinating the Bloom. They hope to make this the best Bloom, especially if this is the final one.
Iyengar always puts on a good game, and her ability to facilitate dialogue between players and set the scene is unparalleled. I enjoyed the more role-play-heavy season and the regency aspects. It was fun to have players write letters, start rumors, and describe their outfits at various events. Iyengar’s GM style tends to make sure the players are having fun. I strive to do this in my games, and I love watching the players’ reactions to her surprises. Overall, this side quest was beautifully done, and I had a blast watching it.
