Journal

Entry 1

I never thought I'd write one of these. The only light I have to write by is the radioactive glow coming from my spleen. I'm writing with my nose because they are trying to turn me into a pencil. The food here is awful - they call them nutritional supplements, but I think they are only fit for an overaccepting pekingese. My cellmate is babbling about quantum realities exposed in his brain. Got to go, looks like it's time for another biogel transfusion.

Amiri grabs my attention the most.

Plus, she might hurt me.

I had a player running a whole party that flew over a tribe of trolls, lassoed one, flew it back to the group, beat the crap out of it and dropped it back off in the tribe.

I don't play with him anymore.

Vyr Azul has been vanquished, but Trini lies dead from poison, Lini has been sent to another plane, Droogami is not accepting commands, and Ydersius himself in climbing from the pit from which he was sent so long ago.

Kavi will try to raise Trini as Venthal, Igori and Droogami face the risen god, in the hope that Trini's prowess can make the difference in stopping this ancient threat from casting the world back into another age of darkness.

Find out in another two weeks!

I play the game because there are imagined moments that I see players and myself potentially experiencing, and sometimes, that actually happens. Other times, moments happen that I didn't imagine at all and I glad I'm there.

I started playing in '82. I remember the stigma that some media groups presented (like 700 club. he picks up the 1e PHB with the demon statue on the front and starts with "now... (pause)". That's when he lost me). I never encountered any specific protest against my interest in playing it, though. My psychology professor once playfully pressed me on whether or not the game affected me, but he didn't seem convinced he had to show concern. If anything, the largest complaint was the time I spent prepping the game and writing adventures instead of doing other things I should have been doing.

The games I played didn't feel demonic. They felt tactical, explorative, story-based, even brilliant (Castle Amber was the most fun I had losing a PC in almost every room we visited).

Also, since we didn't have the internet, we felt like our worlds were our own and we could present things exactly as we wanted without someone trying to present an overqualified opinion of what things should and shouldn't be like - except for a fixated ex-Marine that complained about the layout of a castle map I designed.

Even the modules that dealt with demons (Queen of the Demonweb Pits) portrayed the PCs as planar heroes dealing with an evil force left unchecked.

Granted, there were... behavorial oddities that occurred. One of my players said after finishing Temple of Elemental Evil, especially after the encounter with Iuz and St. Cuthbert, he would wake up from nightmares, running into the hallway and hitting the wall. I'm not sure what to say about that, except that I myself became a bit fixated on how long the PCs I built would survive. I hated losing them, not getting to that point of 'success' that I saw other characters achieving. And there just wasn't any way other than DnD of experiencing that. After I finally got to the higher levels and reached superhero status with all the magic items I had, I had gotten my fill of that.

Probably the biggest epiphany I had was that the GM really determines the quality of the game. When the ex-Marine GM'd, it was a merciless struggle to survive. With another guy that GM'd, it was playing against his whims (which I didn't enjoy). With the guy that ran into hallways after a nightmare, the games felt heroic and rewarding. That was the DnD I fell in love with.

In my VTT, people complained that players seemed to roll low a lot, so I secretly coded the randomizer to return (21 - d20) instead of (d20), which gives the same results, just flipped.

No one noticed. So, I changed it back.

I played in the special at Tier 13 with Blazej and Pirate Rob. After the game, I realized I was playing with Mattastrophic, and TriOmegaZero was GMing!

There were two other fellows whose board names I sadly did not recognize and thus had nearly no chance of remembering.

Thanks, guys, for a memorable special, and thanks to Pirate Rob for arranging the seed for the tier 13 group.

Journals of Urschlar Vohkavi --

For many years I have served on the Seven Spears Council. Despite my desire to divine more of the pending destruction, my superiors and the deities have been frustratingly silent. The others' teachings of the Great Fallacy will undoubtedly destroy us all.
-
The others do not and cannot understand what I see. I have therefore travelled to the court of the Lady herself. Alas, she would not grant me audience. But within the Graveyard of Souls, I came upon a black flower that revealed everything I wished to know. With the pollen of this divine flower, I will finally be able to communicate what I know to the rest of my people.
-
It appears divine providence has granted me fortune, for two of my fellow collegues met dire circumstances, allowing me to advance among my peers. I have preached of my knowledge to the others, and have given them the gift of knowledge granted by this flower. Some have gone mad with what they realized, allowing me to convince the rest to prepare for the coming doom. I continue to prepare more growths of pollen in all the chambers to ensure I never lack for convincing others of what is to come.
-
I cannot trust others with how I have revealed the truth to them, nor can I trust even those who believed me from the start. I alone must take on this task. The Argental Font can bring clarity for a time. I have hidden and protected it within the chambers for those worthy of its power.

The earth shakes. It is too soon. Although, I am beginning to unders..

This ship has numerical stats similar to a TIE Fighter (same attack and evasion, but 2 shield + 2 hull rather than just 3 hull). It also retains the usual Rebel ability to target lock, and has an ability new to Wave 2 (Boost, which allows it to cover more distance as an action).

One of the A-Wing pilot cards also has the most hilarious ability I've seen in the X-Wing minis game so far - Arvel Crynyd, who served as Green Leader in Return of the Jedi (you know, the guy that screamed and ran into the Super Star Destroyer bridge?), has the ability to be able to target a ship that the A-Wing is touching (which normally can't happen). This means it is a viable strategy to try to crash this ship into other ships. Enjoy!

Despite already seeing that titan's artwork in the Bestiary 3 PDF and hardcover, I only just now noticed the resigned posture of the small figure standing in front of it.

I can't tell if he's thinking, "Fine, just kill me now", or, "My GM is a $#@$."

Not sure how often this comes up, but there can be ambient sounds in an environment that become familiar to whoever lives there (air flow, dripping water, etc.). If those ambient sounds are suppressed, it will alert them that something is amiss.

So sometimes, a silence spell can actually give you away.

Just something to keep in mind.

"It has been said that democracy is the worst form of government except all the others that have been tried."

Sir Winston Churchill.

As I remember it, the quote was, "Of all the governments in the world, democracy is the least evil."

I'm not sure which version is more accurate.

That's all I got.
