Aiymi and I have our 13th anniversary on Monday, so we're spending the weekend doing whatever we think of.

I think I have Rise of the Runelords on Sunday and that's it.


No game this weekend. I *hope* to motivate myself to do some housework since I haven't done any this past week. What about the rest of you guys? Big plans?


Another open weekend.

I think it's just housework for me too. Have to check the calendar.

Actually get to game tonight! Hopefully finishing up our long delayed end to our Star Wars RPG (FFG version). Let's stick it to the Empire!

Tomorrow a memorial service (a friend's elderly parent, not unexpected). And less important a hiking class and maaaaybe comic-con. A lot going on.

ETA: After seeing The Good Place last night, also need time to draft up a Creepy Little Girl evil outsider in Pathfinder rules. This is clearly a Bestiary hole that needs to be filled.

In-laws are in town, then I'm flying out Sunday afternoon to go to a convention in Nashville. My wife is vicariously living through me by seeking out recommendations of fun things to do in Nashville, but I'm just looking forward to having lazy evenings where I don't have to worry about homework, bedtimes, and food prep.

I'll probably finally crack the 5E PHB that I've had for nearly a year now.

What do they go over in a hiking class? Is it more about wilderness education or is it about fitness?

I've done both, but in this case, what I'm actually taking is a brief non-credit course on basic arboreal science, and the class tomorrow is the "field portion" where we can observe trees in their natural habitat. :) (And how to identify them, importance to the local ecosystem, etc. etc.)

Ah, okay. I figured it was more than a how-to-walk-outside class. :)

In fairness I've also taken a "how-to-hike" class (many eons ago in college, as a phys ed credit). The classroom part focused on safety, what to bring (e.g., water, map, first aid kit etc.), things one should notice on the trail (both points of interest and signs of trouble), what to do when you are lost or in trouble (like, you slipped and fell down a ravine and broke your ankle), and advice on building endurance for long hikes and ones with difficult terrain. We also had a session at a climbing wall and learned how to handle the ropes and put on a harness. And of course we hiked on trails to get some actual exercise, being a phys ed course and all.

Today's jaunt was very pleasant, gorgeous fall day and learned a lot about how to ID trees.

Oh right, tomorrow is our time to finish Skull and Shackles. (Cyzzane's run.) Got my sohei monk/storm druid leveled up to 15 and ready to go for whatever crazy shenanigans happen.


Cool. Have fun!

Savage Tide happened today, entire session was taken up by the trip to the Phanaton village and the ensuing conversational chaos. The warlock may have convinced them she's some kind of shaman of the stars and introduced them to Aklo. Maybe.

Did more RotRL with Aiymi yesterday.

In NWN news, ran an event for a group of evil and evil-leaning PCs. They called up a Pit Fiend from the group's Red Wizard's backstory to get info on the party tiefling's succubus ancestor.

Unfortunately they did this outside in the rain. So the binding circle got washed away and the fiend waited to reveal this until the end of the conversation. The group had tried to bribe him with a dominated drow they'd captured, but as you all know devils can't accept a soul unless it's freely given.

So he just reached out of the circle - freaking out the party severely in the process - and grabbed the drow, said he'd "convince" him to give up his soul freely in Baator, and offered a bit of "friendly advice" to the Red Wizard ("Don't draw your binding circles in the rain") before vanishing in smoke and flame.

He'll be back next time with their info and an appropriate contract.

So.

Aggroing the level 17 Pistolero hurts. Especially when they have freedom of movement up, making them immune to your idea of grappling them and punching them until they stop moving.

Of course, the alternative option of swinging your large size greataxe in your huge elemental fist, and somehow nailing double nat 20s for over 100 damage also works.


Halloween party tonight. Invited by one of my techs who has a tendency to not leave his home except for work, so I figure it would be good if I went to it.

Camping Saturday-Sunday.


Halloween game and my birthday tomorrow. No parties, except for the one I'm going to antagonize in the game...lol.

Overtime all weekend long. The pay will be nice but the 12 hour shifts suck.


Yuck.


Hey all! Who has big plans for Halloween night? There's nothing going on here. I love Halloween but I never bother with decorations and such. There really aren't any kids that come to my block so I never have any candy to give out. Besides, if there were any kids, the knocking of little visitors would drive my dogs out of their minds. I anticipate a pretty quiet evening.

What about you guys?

Nothing here. Especially since it was under 40*F (4*C) and extremely windy and rainy on the way home from work tonight. So I stayed in the house and played video games and snuggled with my dog.


1 person marked this as a favorite.

It's 24°F and there's 2-4" of snow all over the ground. The kids don't come into our neighborhood when it's good weather. Around here, on Halloween, that just means it hasn't rained in the last 4 hours and it's above 40°F.

Busy crowd last night. It was the first Halloween that wasn't raining in two years. I was grumpy when I got home from work, but sitting outside passing out candy to kids cheered me up pretty well.


Any gaming hijinks this weekend? It's my group's off weekend here.

Skull and Shackles will be on Sunday, along with an unboxing of the three cases of minis that have been on hold in the packaging while we moved.

Starfinder and possibly making characters for 2nd edition Pathfinder.

Nope, gotta go to a meeting. Might do some mini painting though (taught a friend's kid to paint minis last week and it's given me the bug to paint again).


I never had the patience or the coordination for mini painting. I have a friend who used to do it and he was absolutely amazing. I envied his skill pretty badly.


I'm too color-blind for painting artistically.

Shadow Lodge

I leave mini-painting to Scint, she's actually good at it.

Savage Tide today in about an hour, the group is doing side-quests to build up Farshore and will be going after the troglodyte tribe to get access to the banana grove and lumber in their territory and stop their raids on the town, if things go according to plan.

5e game resumes next Tuesday, this week we were missing two people out of six so we did a Halloween one-shot instead.


Hey, all! No game for us this weekend, though it would usually be our scheduled Saturday night shindig. How about everyone else? What's going on this weekend?

NWN Quest tonight. Contract devil giving out a job to investigate a demonic infestation... of a sort.

Savage Tide tomorrow. More troglodytes.

Another NWN quest tomorrow night. Actually a very similar scenario, more fiendish stuff happening.

And one last NWN event Sunday night, this one I'll be playerside in on my tanky near-400-HP gnome.

Supposed to have Rose of the Runelords this Sunday. I imagine tomorrow will be relaxing and preparing the house for that

Howdy, folks! It's been a while!

While I've been avoiding the Paizo forums for a couple of months, I have been doing quite a bit of gaming...

I've been playing as an alternate in a weekly online game of Night Witches. I only played once in October, but I am on the schedule for the rest of November. This is an amazing game that can get very intense emotionally.

My Wednesday night group's D&D 5e Dragon Heist game came to its conclusion back in September. We've switched over to PF2e, and we're now running through Age of Ashes: Hellknight Hill. I'm playing a dwarf wizard. So far, so good: I think I like PF2e better than both PF1e and D&D 5e.

And I am GMing a group through the OSR "psychedelic heavy metal role-playing" setting The Ultraviolet Grasslands. This setting is A BLAST!!! Highly recommended!

We are not using the OSR/d20 rules as published for the game. Instead, we're using my own "Powered by the Apocalypse" rules hack that I'm calling Ultraviolet World. My rules are a highly modified version of Dungeon World.

Finally, I've decided that I'm going to PAX Unplugged next month. If anyone else is going, you'll probably be able to find me in the Magpie Games room: I volunteered to run three slots for them. Still not sure which games I'll be running, but the contenders are Zombie World, Cartel, Bluebeard's Bride, Urban Shadows, and Our Last Best Hope.


Very cool! Glad to see ya!


No game this weekend. It's our regular "off" weekend. If I can get a handle on my knee and back pain I'll do some housework.

How about you guys? What's going on this weekend?

I'm not sure. Last night I went out with a wonderful woman and saw Carrie Nation and the Speakeasy. Tonight I'm going out with my wife to see a Pink Floyd cover band with a laser show. No word on whether or not they also have an inflatable pig. I doubt they're living outside of the country for tax purposes.


But...the pig is required!

I don't usually game on the weekend: My non-gamer wife works out-of-town and usually is only home on the weekends these days. This makes weekends "us time." We're planning to go to a football tailgate (though probably not to the game itself), and we also have tickets to see a local production of "Pippin."

This past week, only one of my three RPGs ran: Night Witches on Gauntlet Hangouts. The GM of Pathfinder game I'm playing in is visiting family outside the US, and two of the players in my Ultraviolet Grasslands game couldn't make it, meaning that we didn't have a quorum.

I got my game assignments for PAX Unplugged...

Sat 12/7: 10AM: Zombie World

Sat 12/7: 2PM: Bluebeard's Bride

Sun 12/8: 2PM: Cartel

If anyone is going to be at PAX Unplugged, and you're looking to try out a "Powered by the Apocalypse" RPG, we'd love to see you in the Magpie Games Room!

I'm driving out to Kirth Gersen's place tomorrow so our 5 year old daughters can play together. I guess he and I will hang out, too.

There's also neighbors on our block who organize a block party every year, so we're planning on attending that, also.

Savage Tide on Saturday! Should be finishing the Troglodyte dungeon the group is exploring. Then I believe the plan is to either go look at some ruins or try to get their ship back. Or both.


Or turn the ship into ruins!

Possible! But unlikely, the party loves their ship.

What's going on this weekend, everyone? No game here, though this would normally be our scheduled weekend. My GF is coming down so we're just going to hang around the house. I also hope I can dampen down the neuropathy that's spreading from my feet to my arms. This is my second night being unable to sleep because of it. It's so very uncomfortable. Blech.

My Ultraviolet Grasslands game last night went AMAZINGLY.

I got to play mix-and-match with sources for the adventure, including...

A custom Dungeon World move that drove the action, taken from the Codex: Discern Realities Annual,

A bunch of derelict starship generation tables from the module Dead Planet for the Mothership sci-fi/horror RPG.

Some monsters and lore, plus a bit of the random cavern generation system from the OSR subterranean adventure supplement Veins of the Earth.

A very weird and terrifying alien from the Starfinder Alien Archive

And a classic but seldom-used psionic monster from the first-edition AD&D Monster Manual

The adventure itself was just a one-page outline. Running this game in a "Powered by the Apocalypse" hack really makes GMing sing: I find I'm nearly always delighted by what the players come up with when they take narrative control of the game. It's often so much better than what I would have come up with on my own, whether at the table or during prep.
