Well that was unexpected.

For some reason my first thought was jumping off one end of a ship and having the ship's gravity swing you around to the other end of the ship. But it has been made clear there are people who do not like this mechanic, including the atmosphere envelope around the ship. So I won't treat this like SpellJammer in Pathfinder. However, I will be watching closely for the aspects it entertains.

I might have imagined one strapped to the bottom of it with a look of pure terror, but I guess that's me.

Sorry all, apparently soon(ish)(TM) didn't mean as soon as I was hoping. I don't have any more information.

The counselor said I should be fit for duty. My hindered ability to walk should pass eventually since I'm no longer being, as my captors put it, "aggressively examined". I guess the fact that I can no longer make out the color puce won't be too much of a hindrance. I'm ready to get back out there and cap me some stickmen. But I have to say, after being under that bright light so many times, I'm feeling more of a strange kinship with our enemies. It's probably just compensation for the guilt I feel for not entirely acquiescing to what they made me realize that I really knew all along. I guess that's just something I'll have to keep between me and them. After all, no one can really understand what I went through. But they try, oh they try. If only they would stop trying, it would prevent these other thoughts I'm having. I just... really need to have that rifle in may hands again. Glowing flowery highlights might be nice...

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.

I just picked this up and have been reading through it. The Castle from 1e is still there with what seems to be the usual and familiar trappings.

Strahd is detailed in the appendix, naturally.

Mike Schley, the cartographer for the product, is offering DM and player friendly digital maps on his site. However, BIG CAUTION HERE... his bundle does NOT include the maps for Castle Ravenloft itself. Those maps appear to have been recreated once again in isometric style and placed in the book throughout the chapter detailing the castle. I was hoping to run this online. But without overhead 2d maps to use for the castle, I'll have to make my own. So, points off there. Get with the program, Wizards!

Card-driven goals, treasure locations, helpful NPCs, etc. are still there.

There are also plenty of other quest locations to get PCs from level 1 to 10.

I don't know how well the adventure compares to Return to Castle Ravenloft from 3.5, but the 1e Ravenloft adventure is mostly fully included.

So far I've had a few quibbles about how certain evocative phrases were worded as I recall them from the 1e days. They sound more conversational in the 5e version, which threw me off from a reading enjoyment standpoint.

You're just moving me into management, aren't you.

Still down, huh? I'll send a message to the server admin.

Update: Or rather, I would if I could get AIM going...

Update 2: Nevermind! It came back up! Well, not entirely. It has a breath.

Liberty's Edge

Highly sophisticated AI - so sophisticated that each has its own personality and is nothing to marvel at anymore for people inhabiting the world.

Liberty's Edge

Contacted admin, no response.

Is this something you can discuss with your GM?

Think of am LE paladin as an absolute right hand man, completely convicted in his devotion, and an utter servant to who he is loyal to. In the case of an LE, sort of a most respectable anti-police. An opponent to anything counter to his god's goals.

Liberty's Edge

If he thinks like a paladin when on the ladder, then, well, yes, he still falls.

Question: Does invisibility break line of sight?
That's a rather interesting question.

As a GM I would rule that it does not. If you know where the invisible creature is, you can look at that location without a broken line of sight.

Liberty's Edge

And it's back up. Thanks... someone?

Liberty's Edge

No response from the admin. :(

I sent a poke to the admin - he seems to be offline. Not sure when it will be answered.

Long ago, I was so enamored with Vecna's presentation in Vecna Lives that I wanted to make a small campaign around getting rid of him once and for all. Still being a lich despite being a demigod, he has a phylactery... somewhere. The PCs would have to find it, take it to the heart of the crystal sphere (SpellJammer) and touch it against the obelisk there that dispels all magic permanently. Finding the phylactery would involve speaking to an arcanaloth and invading a demiplane near Pandemonium with technology based demons (cough Doom, cyberdemon boss).

I figured after that campaign, there really wasn't anything else I could challenge the party with. It never happened, though.

Liberty's Edge

Realistically, yes, the Empire could have beaten the Alliance by pure resources and numbers.

But the movies suggested that once Vader and the Emperor were down, the Empire couldn't function properly enough.

Maybe Force Awakens will give us a different picture.

Remember back in the Basic days when it was called a tribe?

After some googling, I saw the words 'grund' and 'rabble'

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.

Gold is the universal target of avarice.

Dragons enjoy acquiring and keeping treasure from others.
They enjoy that others wish they could have some of the treasure for themselves but are too afraid to try to take any.
They are the metaphorical misuse of wealth that could be used for more beneficial purposes.
Defeating them means ridding the kingdom of a vast threat, bringing great rewards.

Unless, of course, it is a metallic dragon, in which case what they have is only because they want it, and that's ok!

Liz, the AIM contact is offline, is there someone else I can ping?

The caster and fighter serpentfolk from the Fortress had teleported away when the morlocks went on their rampage. I placed them at the final fight to add more challenge.

The fighter and huge snake companion were dispatched easily. Vyr Azul and the caster tried to disable/destroy some heroes, but everyone was making their saves... until the caster strode forward and cast prismatic spray.

The druid was sent to Elysium, and the summoner dropped dead from poison...

The cleric was caught in a force cage. The witch flew up and dimension door'd him out. The high priest and caster were finally vanquished. But Ydersius was climbing out of the pit... the alchemist blows his last load of alchemy bombs to weaken him.

The Tempest felt the druid leave the fight and asked their common patron, Gozreh, for assistance. The male and female voices guided the cleric to use the gate scroll on the dead priest's body to call the druid back. the witch began casting raise dead on the summoner.

Ydersius climbs out of the pit, and unleashes his frightful presence. The cleric and the animal companion move to intercept. The druid summoned a celestial purple worm but is blocked by the unholy aura. The cleric and companion, both heavily buffed, manage to cause heavy damage to Ydersius despite his unholy aura, his attempt to turn the companion into a viper, and his blasphemy.

Melee blows continue and Ydersius is taken down without causing any real melee damage to the group. The summoner is finally raised. Eventually they sever his head, sending his thrashing body back into the depths of the chasm from which he crawled, back to where Savith sent him 10000 years before.

Liberty's Edge

The heroes are victorious!

Ydersius is slain, sorta, again.

Thank you all for four years of GMing. Now, I need a break.

83 sessions or so? I stopped keeping track after you reached your max level.

Liberty's Edge

Work was completed a few hours ago, and no calls from the office, so the game should be happening tonight.

Liberty's Edge

Just a heads up, I'm doing some office work today. I'm hoping it doesn't interfere with our start time.

As for things going pear shaped last session, I have some ideas of how to brings things back to a point of hope. Also, Kavi is hoping to get Trini raised during the fight.

Liberty's Edge

It's $1.00 and $0.10 because it looks that way. I don't care if $1.00 isn't actually $1.00 more than $0.10!!!

Liberty's Edge

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!

Liberty's Edge

Chat is back up. If it breaks again, watch for private messages before the game.

Liberty's Edge

Let me know if you aren't available tonight because of the holiday weekend.

Also, the chat room appears to not be working. I'll send the IP address to each of you as a private message when/if we play.

Liberty's Edge

There's a heartbeat, still not up yet.

Liberty's Edge

Drat, chat is down and I don't have the hoster's AIM contact anymore, I had to reinstall Windows!

I can confirm this adventure is for levels 8 to 15. Though 15 still doesn't seem like quite enough to face Tiamat (mwahaha!).

Are you penning anything for the Elemental Evil storyline due in March 2015?
