Viewers Games

Sunday, April 30, 2017 - 18:30

So we're doing viewer games.

Trying to.

Sundays at 5pm - 8pm PST.

No Unearthed Arcana. Yeah, lame, I know.

Be in the stream with a copy of Skype configured, a 1st level character, a webcam and a mic.

Characters may be of any published race, no Volo's (sorry).

Rolling Stats: 4d6 drop, make 3 sets, pick the best set. Yeah, we play high power stuff around here.

Take max hit dice, hitpoints; every level.

World is my airships, motes, etc; get creative with your history. Liberties are granted for good stuff.

Drunken Master is now a thing

Saturday, April 8, 2017 - 23:43

Monk is my favourite class that I never play.

I typically play fighter, or ranger, sometimes thief, rarely wizard, occasionally cleric. More often then wizard, but not as often as rogue.

If I get the opportunity to play, I want to be awesome, super powered amazingness. I don't have time to fuck around with 'character development' or morales and other pieces of RP gameplay that I adore. It's all about the viscera when I get my moment on the players side.

With the latest Unearthed Arcana a new opportunity for role play ridiculousness rears, and I'm excited to see them...

D&D Beyond is in beta 1

Monday, March 20, 2017 - 08:55

For the third time now, Wizards has teamed up with a software developer to provide their fans with the tools to develop their D&D games and beyond. Shoehorned slogans aside, the first beta opened up today and so far, I like it. It's nothing that you can't get elsewhere but it is a nicely packaged SRD with a mobile layout and Wizards/Twitch sponsorship.

If you haven't checked out some of the other tools out there, you can look up https://arcana.io/ and see how they compare.

So last session was excellent once again, although players always have something to complain about.

The easiest sessions to design on the fly are the travelling scenarios the players encounter and I do so love building these out door sets.

At current, the party is venturing back to Royals Peak, the capital of the...

Let'em fight

Saturday, March 4, 2017 - 15:04

Initial thoughts regarding the game?

It's 12:30am, you're drunk, you feel good about the game but you're trying to close it down, and that's when it strikes.

For fucks sake. Now. Fucking, now. It's ...now? Why not now.

Now that that's out of the way, I would've, could've, should've.

Should've had dwarves in the wreckage fighting for their lives, despite Prissmahl's presence (yeah, that's how his name's actually spelt).

Should've provided the characters with a fast travel back to town.

Should've expected fuckery.

Most importantly, I...

I like'em bigger.

Wednesday, March 1, 2017 - 11:35

I received this anonymously : http://killstring.blogspot.ca/2016/06/table-for-one-party-of-twelve-large.html

Reading through it, I would say I agree that in larger groups the middle chemistry is gone. This is of course further exasperated by my telling folks to cram the cross talk.

Last session was the first session I watchd through and what I realized is that I quashed the life of the adventure. Everyone had a moment...

Last session was fantastic. Fast paced turns, quick moving characters and several set pieces add up to a fun night.

The players continued their journey through the forward camp, making their way through a coal mine and coming out to witness the crashing of one dwarven ship as several others make their escape to places unknown.

Next week, the players are confronted with the choice of how to delve down into the dwarven vessel in search of answers to the mystery of the strange disappearance.

The channel writings have been whittled down; content has been reduced and...

Continuing the adventure

"Where did they go?"
"Why aren't they here?"

Last session finished off with the crew coming upon the scout camp the dwarves of Highhelm had established a day away from Royals Peak.

Tonghts session picks up at the camp with the party members watching an elk running away.

MTG Crossover? WTF? Yesterday the boys and girls of WotC released Kaladesh, a... Read More

Phantom Bot

Monday, February 13, 2017 - 00:19
Upgraded

The XP Fairy is replaced.

We now have, the Phantom Bot. Still called the XP Fairy and still capable of some of the stuff I had coded for the old fairy, the new fairy has a humongous number of commands and I've enabled most of them; including song requests, Johnny :)

We now have a !gift command.

XP is still XP and I don't know if I'll have time to figure out synching the XP between the site and the new fairy before the weekend.

Yes, this means the point values are reset, BUT if you are a regular that I recognize (you know who you are) and you tell me your points...

New Campaign

Friday, February 10, 2017 - 17:50

A new campaign is upon us.

The XP Fairy still hasn't been tooled but I got my soundboard working again.

The XP awards board is getting curated, suggestions for generic, quck and fun effects welcome.

Todays adventure starts with the players in the Kingdom of the Cloud Spires.

Each player receives a fate lot to add intrigue to the game's world.

The Cloud Spires kingdom, a small but dense and powerful kingdom sequestered in the high peaks of northern Faerun, has been under siege by Highhelm forces for the last two years. Though largely self sufficient many...
