@Darksteelthopter Welcome to the table! I'm actually about to buy Pandemic: Rising Tide today, and hopefully Pandemic: Fall of Rome next month. We went through all of Pandemic Legacy S1 in about two months, so 'regular' Pandemic is likely not going to be hitting the table anytime soon, haha. It's a great game, though, a classic.

anyone have some good articles on fantasy economy stuff? i'm trying to keep it a bit grounded here, no magic swords that cost about the gdp of an entire region.

Years ago in a 3rd party book for 3.5 i saw an adventure that was literally a giant vault door set in a cliff and rumors of treasure behind it. Bunch of locks on the door required picking, casting spells on them to unlock, riddles, it was crazy. When you opened it finally it turned out to just be a promotion for a gnome security contractor to show off how good his locks are. I would love to put something like that in a module.

Monday game night: playing Yamatai against my sister :)

It's an interesting take on area control games, where you have to place ships around islands to build on them, and collect specialists who add points to your buildings if they meet certain conditions - combos encouraged :p

Overall, a mixed reaction from me though - it's a fun puzzle, but I feel there's too much that can change between your turns, meaning that you can't plan ahead massively :/

Do you need the Dread Gazebo in your life? Because that's a thing you can get a miniature for on Etsy.

@ingalacornicum I personally think most would work if you scale it all correctly and catch any composition weaknesses beforehand, but honestly I have no idea what works nicely out of the box and I would love to hear the answer.

hey, since I'm not well versed in systems - do you know any systems that are good to play with small groups (2 players, one GM?)

@dapperbear Sort of. I made goblins with vuvuzelas rob a bank in our game during that one soccer world cup about a decade ago, some might say that qualifies as a holiday 😂​ I was just fed up with the sound of the horns and my players' incessant use of it, so I made sure to weaponize it as the DM; soccer is so not my cup of tea.

Still want to do scenarios based on various holidays, but with a good twist.
