I'll see your "moving a book collection" and raise you "moving a 30-ish years comic book collection." Twice! In less than a year!

Yeah collecting is a b+%&&. I think once I get to DC I am going to do some serious downsizing. Material attachment is pain, quothe Buddha. I can see where he is coming from after today....OW


Good morning, everyone.

Just got back from running our last session of Carrion Crown! After 5 years, the remaining members of our group defeated the Whispering Way and saved Ustalav!

Oh man, I keep that stuff at my grandparents house. If I had to move all of that as well...

Awesome, I am I the early stages of it in a PbP, seems slower than s!$@, overall you liked it?


So, today has been a strange, less than good day. As some of you know (because I've griped about it enough) I have to deal with bad chronic pain. Today I've been exceptionally uncoordinated, dropping, kicking, bumping, and knocking over everything I've come in contact with. I even missed my office chair and landed on the floor so hard I've jacked up my back. I need to take a shower but am afraid I'll fall if I do.

On the bright side, while walking the dingoes at 1 am, I found a dollar lying in the grass outside my house. So there's that.


The boards have been quiet today. Too quiet.

<.< >.>

Maybe everyone's saving their energy for the weekend-long bout of binge drinking? :D


Sad DMC is sad because he can't drink anymore, binge or otherwise.

And, since I can't drink as much as I used to anymore, I share your pain. *shoulder bump*

But that doesn't mean I can't joke about it. :)

Well it took us 5 years (and a month) to complete, so it is slow! Though there are a lot of factors to that - we missed weeks, took breaks, played other things, lost players, found new players, lost them, added in a few side quests ... On average each book took us 8-10 sessions (average 3-4 hours) to complete, though the last book took more.

I really enjoyed it (and I think most of the players did too) until probably the last book. That was a long slog; travel, combat, dungeon crawl, combat, travel, combat, dungeon crawl, combat. Also by that point the PCs were pretty powerful and super focused at killing undead - so major undead set-piece battles they knocked over in a few rounds with ease, then they'd get almost killed by a lower CR non-undead encounter ... it was a bit weird. But overall, yes, really good AP for books 1-5.


Good morning, all.


Hi everyone,

I hope everyone is reasonably well and save from the hurricane

todaywe visited the mediveal market (ren fair for you americans) in Steinau, hometown of the brothers Grimm

I met with a friend I had not seen more than 10 years, sadly we had not as much time to talk because the kids wanted their dad-time, which htey deserve, I was very busy the whole week

I got a lot of second ecition boxes sets from a friend who has no more room for them:
Undermoumtain, Dark Sun, Menzoberanzan....

not much use today, but they will look good on the shelfs of the gameroom

Actually, they're good for source material. Go through each and redo the monsters and NPCs for Pathfinder, and you can use those boxed sets for a very long time.

tomorrow we want to visit the fairy tale festival in Hanau, birthplace of the Brothers Grimm (born in Hanau - like me, grown up in Steinau an der Straße, studied in Marburg and lived most of their adult live in Kassel, all in Hessia)

yeah, you're right, especially Undermountain should have some great ideas buried in it

Undermountain is MASSIVE! A party can adventure for months simply by using leveled encounter tables and random treasures.


And Skullport is the local "wretched hive of scum and villainy."


DARK SUN WOOOOOOOOOO

Undermountain rocks!
As long as you're not a first-level clueless guard.

Paris's "Into the Feyweald" was a definite hit with my niece and nephew! Also, my nephew spent every spare minute we had during the week reading the new rulebooks I gave him.

Agreed, I reference 2 ed stuff all the time.

They did a good job behaving until the very last moment when they had to fight :-)

I'd never run it before so that was fun. You could run an entire campaign down there if you really wanted to!


Exactly, or drop it into Skull and Shackles as another Pirate Haven or Tortuga Port.

I ran a few parties through bits of Undermountain back in the day. I've never used more than a fraction of the published material for it though. Still have those two 2E Undermountain box sets somewhere at home.

I ran a full fledged Undermountain Dungeoncrawl one Saturday a month for about a year a decade or so ago then we all started getting married and that was that.

I am bringing those PCs back as an enemy party in my first table top game this coming September so I try to let nothing go to waste!

In current Campaign I had them delve as low as the second level and ran the Dungeon of the Crypt and the Fireplace level from the Paizo Dungeon mag, in a Waterdeep Campaign at least a few visits to Undermountain are a must I believe. :-)

Never did get to use Undermountain II. Maybe I'll run it as a PbP when some of the ones I am running now expire.

Thank you sir, that's a great idea for my Skull & Shackles game!

No Problem, sir. And I'd be very interested in participating in your Undermountain II PbP.

I'll keep you in mind when I get to it, that would be a while as I am reaching critical mass from a PbP perspective.


I'm patient. I can wait. :)

Reaching? I would have thought passed it and out the other side! ;-)


Wee approach the PbP Singularity...

Oh, you didn't hear? He contracted that out to George RR Martin to write just as soon as the Game of Thrones books are done. So, should be on sale any day now.
