Out of the Abyss: Campaign Diary 2

Our group finished Sloobludop this week. That means, yes, we got the big scene and I hope it felt suitably epic for them. Week 2 The previous week largely consisted of random encounters for leveling and environment, then a big fight against the kuo-toa loyal to the Deep Father. I don’t set up full maps […]

Tomb of Annihilation: Campaign Diary Introduction

I recently started running the Tomb of Annihilation adventure with a group of players from my summer Rage of Demons tier 1 mini-campaign. The group consisted of a Duergar fighter (from RoD), a half-orc barbarian, a dwarf barbarian/druid, a tiefling sorcerer, and a tabaxi bard, all between levels 1 and 4. Since this campaign operates under the […]

Out of the Abyss: Campaign Diary 1

After completing “Forge of Fury”, the adventurers had not all leveled to 5. This meant they couldn’t start “Hidden Shrine of Tamoachan” as a group. We talked about options, and eventually we decided to run Out of the Abyss instead. That led to further discussion about whether or not to stick with Adventurers League for the […]

City of the Spider Queen: Session 3

  As previously noted, I’ve started playing in a City of the Spider Queen campaign with some longtime friends. After waffling a bit, I ended up creating an elven ranger, using the Revised Ranger from Unearthed Arcana with the Deep Stalker archetype. He is effectively a slave hunter, and others have noted some aspects of him […]

Playing with my kids in somebody else’s game

I started playing in a new Lost Mine of Phandelver campaign tonight. It feels good to get to enjoy it from the other side of the screen for once! I have run the campaign before and thus know most of the goodies, modulo whatever the DM changes. However, I see my role as primarily supportive, […]

Sunless Citadel: Dragon Rodeo

This post will have spoilers for the first level of Sunless Citadel. If you don’t want that for any reason, then don’t read. I strongly urge anyone planning to play in this adventure to avoid spoilers. Preserve the fun for yourself! But if you have already played it or otherwise don’t mind, this session included […]

  Playing Adventurers League with my kids (we’re the trio in the lower left) has proved lots of fun. Yes, the group up there was far too large. We just didn’t have enough DMs to go around despite having some extra on hand to compensate for the primary organizer being unable to attend this week. […]

Into the Temple of Zuveng

I’m traveling this week and will likely have lots of solo RPG time. With this particular adventure, Getek’s saga takes another twist as he delves into a dungeon. Tags: Holy Site (Shou cult from Tea Riots in Xian Part 1) Size: Heretic hideout, 8 locations Inhabitants: Shou + Tide Cult (mix to taste) Thing: Black relic […]

Tea Riots in Xian, Part 1

Getek returns for another urban adventure! This time, civil disturbances provide a backdrop for the fact that he has had an evidently complicated love life. Even if he saves everyone, complications will almost certainly result… Also, I’m still experimenting with the format of these posts and future ones will probably continue to vary considerably. Urban […]

I’m not entirely sure playing an RPG in a convention-like environment or at a gaming store is as good as we might hold it up to be sometimes. Advertisements
