Catgotslain has reached her goal

Micki's Delirium

I got a bit of a late start, I hadn’t planned to play Hardcore League but when some friends started talking about it, I decided I wanted to do it too. I wanted the horse. I’ve done 5k favor before, but not solo, without dying or in 3 months – yet, that was what my initial plan was. To solo to 5k favor, and stream on twitch while doing so. Actually, before doing that, I started a Youtube video-series, ExperimentA, B, C and D – I also named one ExpandableA, misspelling the name. In the Youtube series I first did 3 death tests, seeing what dying on HC would look like. Test 4 I was going to just play normally – elite at bravery level and see how long I would last. After doing about 17 videos, ppl started asking me to stream instead of doing these videos – so…

AD&D Session 20: Lizardache’s Den of Instinkquity

Jeffro's Space Gaming Blog

This game opened up with the return of Malbert . Everyone that this guy had been adventuring with before is dead now except for Fagor. While not a whole lot seems to happen in any one session, the changes sure do seem to add up. It’s a completely different game now!

Updating the him to the current situation following on from last session was much harder than I expected. The rough player map was completely wrong. My wizard duel that set off an explosion on the southwest side of city had gotten changed in the players’ minds into a meteor strike on the southeast side of the city. Everything was confused! When the players went into the dungeon, nothing was where they’d thought it was, even after I carefully gave out exact lengths for were doors were, turns, and passageways.

One thing was clear, though. Going across the electric shock…

Shadows of the Ruinous Powers – Session 34

Dyson's Dodecahedron

(Being a series of quick game notes trying to account for the events of many sessions of playing through The Enemy Within using the Warhammer Fantasy Roleplay 1e rules.)

Session 34

Power Behind the Throne

  • Wilhelm [Wizard] – I 55
  • Wilfried [Forger] – I 53
  • Larry [Mercenary] – I 48
  • Gottlieb [Assassin] – I 43
  • Othmar [Spy] – I 46
  • Brother Nate [Cleric] – I44

The celebration of the 1812 OverCure.

With most of the city seeming to be “charging up” for the commencement of the festivities on Wellentag, this day is initially quite quiet.

Othmar has managed to talk his way through two young women that arrived in Middenheim at the same time as the group (the Jung sisters) to get the group an invitation to the home of their cousin, Kirsten Jung, one of the ladies at the court of the Graf.

That evening the group gathers at…

Design Evolution: Bolstering Magic

ThinkDM

I love looking at the design evolution from Unearthed Arcana to finished product to see what kind of tips we can learn from the pros. This week, we have that opportunity with the Path of Wild Magic Barbarian, whose Magic Reserves class feature (Unearthed Arcana playtest) became Bolstering Magic (D&D Celebration preview).

I love the flavor of this feature, so I’m glad it stuck. What changed?

  1. Use limiter: proficiency/LR.
  2. Benefit limiter: 1/LR (spell slots only).
  3. Decremented die from a d4/d6 to a d3.
  4. Regeneration for spell slots of roll level “or less.”
  5. Removed HP recharge for attack/skill buff.

Let’s take a deeper look at the effects these have, and what changed from our last visit with the Magic Reserves feature.

Use/Benefit Limiter

Both the use and benefit restrictions effectively erase the Unearthed Arcana’s “infinite mana battery” conundrum.

This new mechanic gives you 3…

Shunned Gateway of the Ochre Sigils

Dyson's Dodecahedron

Shunned Gateway of the Ochre Sigils WIP

The massive bars that keep out intruders are orange with rust – somehow appropriate for a place named after the yellow and orange sigils drawn on every wall. The ochre sigils extend out also, almost like they were trying to escape – stragglers cut and painted into the stone face outside.

Once a gateway through which the sorcerer-priests would summon demons and servitors from the Yellow Hells, the structure has fallen into disuse with the end of their religious practices in the Principalities of Black Sphinx Bay. It would seem abandoned except that the bars at the entrance have been pried open and new ochre symbols have been added to the demonic names that decorate this place.

Of course, with the sorcerer-priests gone, no one here knows exactly how the gateways worked… or even what the gateways were. Is the fountain with…

I’m Gonna Miss You, Twitch Sings

In Third Person

As of January 1st, 2021, Twitch Sings is no more. Twitch announced on September 4th that they would be shutting the game down in the new year. At the very least, they did one more major drop of 400 new songs for players to keep singers engaged between now and its eventual demise.

Though I haven’t been using Twitch Sings for long, its closure really stings.

My Playstation 5 Showcase Reactions – Price, Release Date

The Games Freak

Sony unveiled everything at September’s Playstation 5 Showcase, giving us the price and release date for the console, along with news about lots of new games!

Let’s just start everything off with a quick disclaimer – I loved the showcase, and managed to pre-order a Playstation 5 the day after. That whole pre-order situation was a mess, but I’m glad I got one because everything shown in that presentation was music to my ears. Now let’s talk about the games!

They kicked things off with one we all knew was coming – Final Fantasy XVI. It looked fantastic, and was a great way to start the show. A huge announcement, but something we all expected. I’m a little confused about what platforms this game will launch on, but it seems it will be a PS5 exclusive for 6 months, then potentially come to PC. Then it could be another 6…
