The Newest Vacation Hot Spot in all the Cloud Spires

Thursday, July 6, 2017 - 14:01

Although never formally named, the Volcano "Almustaqim Alshaytan", or "Vrata vatre" awaits the players.

Tomorrow, the party ventures to the volcano in search of the centre where they will quell the activity, and save the spires.

I made a homebrew item on DNDBeyond.

Bigbys Brass Knuckles are now online and awaiting approval :D

[How to] The Covenant of Silver drop

Thursday, July 6, 2017 - 09:49

A prevalent part of my campaign world is airships and the sky in general. Terra firma is know to be a desolate place rife with untold horror.

CoS soldiers are feared because they can infiltrate any structure with an entry or landing zone exposed to the sky. CoS extractions have a high success rate for their ability to get in and out before the enemy is even aware of their presence. Dropping from an airship, they can be on top of a target within seconds and using boots of jumping they can glide away at high speeds as en effective escape method.

Conducting a drop assumes...

Mobile camera situation

Wednesday, July 5, 2017 - 12:23

The mobile camera for my streaming players is a difficult challenge that I may have cracked.

I forgot I had a spare phone and intend to start testing this with tonights game, although as phones and the sand might be concerned, I doubt this unit is as durable as the PS3 eye.

Also, battery life is a concern so I'll have to order a small 14v (for fast charge) battery pack to provide video level juice.

The GoPro plan fell through as the GoPro cameras do not support any sort of live streaming natively, save through the periscope app on mobile (at the time of this writing...

Stream Quest

Wednesday, July 5, 2017 - 11:34

This was a bit shocking, and maybe it shouldn't be.

I got an email today from a web service called Stream Quest. It let's viewers put quests up for streamers with dollar values attached.

Also, it has a payment system and an overlay for displaying the "quests."

In short, it could allow other streams to do what I do, and be rewarded with dollars that viewers put up for the accomplishment of the tasks. It looks like the viewer who puts up the quest is responsible for clearing it too, which takes the onus off the streamer, save to accept the quest.

I have to admit...

Good Session?

Saturday, July 1, 2017 - 01:48

I'm proud to say that I've had two sessions in a row, with role play as the focus.

Characters coming in and permissions changes; also D&D Beyond has a character generator now

Thursday, June 29, 2017 - 21:00

The players are slowly populating their characters upon the site.

Remember, players: You need to provide an up to date character sheet (level and equipment of note) to continue getting a +2 during games.

Permissions were adjusted to prevent other players from curating one anothers characters. If you wish to pass custodial privilege to another player, bring it up in the comments or during game. At this time I don't see any need to allow it.

The D&D Beyond Character Creator is online and it's really good stuff. If you haven't given it a shot, go for it.

1 minute per spell

Tuesday, June 20, 2017 - 08:15

Preparing a new list of (class) spells requires time spent (praying/studying): at least 1 minute per spell level for each spell on your list.

So sayeth the official 5th edition rules.

Tonight is a night, like any other night, but tonight.. is so different is so many ways

Friday, June 2, 2017 - 18:03

I bought a copy of the 'Yawning Portal' today, because I expect to need some elements out of it in the near future.

Viewers tonight will be rewarded for attention paid towards Pelorite references.

I've also limited the board to 3 injections, and set everyone to 1 injection a piece; so writing an injection will over write your old one.

Note, this may be broken.. so we'll see. Cross your fingers.

Stream of Annihilation

Thursday, June 1, 2017 - 11:52

If you haven't heard of it, the Stream of Annihilation is an intense line up of back to back D&D streaming for all of Friday and Saturday.

Intense, eh?  Looks like it should be a sweet line up and I'll be sure to catch Mike Mearls episode on YouTube.  I legitamitely enjoy watching him work; contrastly Chris Perkins annoys me because I'm ridiculously jealous of him.  Mearls I feel a reverance towards, but Perkins I want to outdo.

We allegedly have a stream happening...
