I play D&D and there's not a damn thing WotC can do about that. Well, short of sending a level 10 assassin I guess, in classic Gygaxian ToEE style. At least it'll be fun if it's a real Gygaxian assassin. Not a green-washed, polished teeth smile, pseudo-menacing-but-not-too-much, smiling bunny-face WotC assassin. Oh woops! It's "ass ass in" so I guess they can't send one since it would violate their own "sexually explicit content" restrictions. **PRAISE BE HEIRONEOUS, I SAVED FOR SURE!**
Sorry, had the wrong video on this post for an hour. 😕
Let's be clear, this is my RPG account. So why am I posting two videos that I should really post from my "trying to make music" account instead? Well, because ... there's a cave involved! And despite the music content (well, impulse response content, but who's counting) these are really about spelunking. And the spelunking is scary, in a way no D&D adventure I ever played in or ran has ever felt scary. Even those set in caves. So that's why I am posting these. More below...
Jonathan Perkel posted this over on FB and I love it so much I had to repost. I can't find him over here in the #fediverse so far? The post was titled "stuff we did when we were 12" or something like that. And I really want to throw this into a fancy B/X melee simulator... 😄
If you cannot sit down to play around a camp fire in the middle of nowhere, even after the cataclysm, then it's not really a #ttrpg to begin with.
Earlier this year @kensanata and I played "the second team" in a Traveller campaign @wandererbill was running. Sometime in August I wrote some "posthumous" theme music and now I finally had time to do a slightly better mix. Not really happy with it on my shitty headset, but since it sounds fine on the fancy AKG headset... Either buy a better headset or help me get better at mixing songs. 😄 Yes we played wanna-be assassins who were also "famous" rockstars. Like you do. https://soundcloud.com/walrus-spears-my-family/zhodani-murder-crisp-muddy-christmas-mix
Sadly Merlach was eaten by a crab monster and Frumlach was cut in half by an undead pirate skeleton. Krablach and Hegward however made it back to the New Caves of Chaos with 30gp, new crab shields, a bunch of sabres and pirate hats. So... It was a successful expedition?
Another session of A&A in Zothay coming up! We've just had the first player character level up over some down-time activities that involved smuggling an old statue to some scary-ass wizard who will turn it into who-knows-what over the next few weeks. The crew has moved onto their boat and is regretting it already since the weather has been ... suboptimal to say the least. Especially the lizard man seems to have trouble waking up what with the recent cold spell... 😄 @kensanata @frotz @PresGas
Oh, just to clarify, there were 10 people in the party, 3 primary PCs, 5 henchmen, and 2 hirelings. So it wasn't *just* the one halfling.
Barrowmaze session 28 tonight. They made short work of Klexx the Maligned who was really not much of a challenge against a bloodthirsty level 4 halfling with a magical dagger. All in all they pulled out over 4,000gp. And they think they "finished" the "easternmost part" of the Barrowmaze. Yeah, well... 😄
I'll get to play this kobold barbarian with three awesome hench-kobolds in @wandererbill's OD&D game later this month. Being part of "Team Chaos!" should be fun, no? 😄 I also ❤️ these character sheets. 😮
I'll play just about anything, but I prefer running house-ruled B/X D&D games with a somewhat Gygaxian flavor. Oh, and my toots expire.
