Pinned toot

Kerbal Space Program is really just a screenshot generator. Random accidents, like the timing of this launch, just happen to be really pretty.

It makes me want to catch a real-world space launch sometime.

What are your favorite tools / questionaires / sites?

I need a better way to organize an upcoming sandbox, and especially could benefit from something designed to prod me into thinking about things I hadn't considered yet.

Part of that is figuring out political boundaries, some is faction management, some is figuring out what dungeon is where (and why, and how the PCs could find out about it). Hexographer might be a start?

Session summary 

Aaaaa! The 9-year 3.5 game is in five hours and I don't have a "b plot" or two additional clues for the "a plot".

I'm not railroading so much as trying to lay down some track in multiple directions the players might proceed in. I'm also nudging towards the end of the campaign, tying up loose ends instead of creating more, so straight-up improv is much, much harder at this stage. There is surprisingly little advice written on this subject - ending long games satisfyingly is hard.

Notes from tonight's level 20 3.5 game:

Confusion on the rogue is still terrifying, maybe moreso because she's the highest level PC.

Holy Word basically removes all mooks from the battle instantly, unless the PCs take several rounds finishing off all of the paralyzed, blind and deafened opponents instead of going directly for the Big Bad.

A CR 23 Thoon Elder Brain is no match for a party of 5 level 19s with four Tier 1 spellcasters at full resources. Even a CR 25 might not be enough.
