Eberron Game! No Auld Grumpies Allowed!

Recommended Posts

Wow, that was easy - I needed a way for the players to hide from the floating thing.

 

And remembered Hey, they made friends with a phase spider a few weeks ago!

 

Easy Peasy! CLICK! and done! :lol:

 

But first they get to see the airship that they were expecting to come back in a day to pick them up get shot out of the sky. :devil:

 

I decided at the beginning that every time they need to travel Something Will Happen.

 

So far, so so good!

 

Then they will have to decide whether to keep after what they were sent to find out, go rescue the people in the downed airship, or (dramatic pause) SPLIT THE PARTY! ::D:

 

Grump is gonna want to split the party, and HATE himself for doing so. What more can a wife ask for? ::P:

 

I was expecting to sit in front of the screen spinning my wheels, instead it was a simple Copy and Paste!

I'm psychic!

 

I not only predicted who would decide to split the party, but how they would split it!

 

And both groups accomplished their missions, leaving them saddled with four still wounded crew. They need to be careful around the phase spider. If they are too injured then her instincts might kick in, and it will be dinner time.

 

The only thing I didn't predict was Grump grabbing the memory tapes and soul gems from the aberrant warforged. I forgot that we are using gearforged, which have those things.

 

Later, I will allow them to use investigation skills to find out more. I just need to make it up first! I can USE this.

 

Jon is really looking forward to his bloodrager learning to fly.

Do I let them rescue the first team's people, the ones that MAY be still alive, or do I tell them they're too late?

 

Or do I give them clues that MAY lead them to rescuing the team later?

 

I am leaning toward that last. The party is already chewed up, letting them go into the Shadow Plane would be murder, right now.

I need a T Rex for Xen'drik. :B):

How are the miniatures from Heroforge with the new materials?

 

I have designed a warforged GENTLEMAN ADVENTURER for Grump's character, and want to get it for his birthday next month.

 

But the ones he got me a few years ago were not all that good. Great poses, and I love them to pieces, but fragile, and that was how they wound up in pieces.

 

And not smooth, though Grump found a way to get around that, so they were green for a while before he painted them. I don't know what he did.

 

Are they better now?

From what I've seen, their current highest quality is both less grainy and less fragile than it used to be, but I've only seen them, never really worked with them.

More Weresharks can only be a good thing.   Have a large air elemental nearby as well.  5XP to the first person to mention Sharknado then kill them.

 

Also, Grump is playing Othar Tryggvassen?

Yup!

 

Only mechanical, and dressed like a robot pimp!

 

With a monocle!

 

IF the characters survive next week then they will be heading for Xen'drik.

 

Kind of iffy, I really wish the party would hole up and heal up before pushing on.

 

But they listened when I mentioned the damaged warforged were ALSO looking, so they have been staggering along. Two are poisoned right now, and one is also diseased.

 

And Grump wants NOTHING to do with the rust monster. As soon as he shoots, it will know they are there.

 

And it hasn't occurred to them yet that if someone is using rust monsters to guard the facility in the Shadow Plane then that someone is NOT the damaged warforged.

I dreamed again, and now I know the location of the last scene in the campaign, and the last handout.

 

 

 

  Hide contents

A partially burned note that has been grasped in a dead man's hand since the Day of Mourning.

 


 

Cyre is only the beginning

 
 

 

 

Going to have the players pop into the ruins of Metrol, find each clue, which leads somewhere else, that has a clue that leads back to Metrol.

 

That last clue is in the palace itself, but nothing about what it means.

 

I have divided to raid our library for film noir, and maybe rent Atomic Blonde again.

This thread has inspired me to do my own homebrew combined with an old gurps game (some of the lore is included in the infinite dimensions 3d print stuff) Cyre is only the beginning for me too but later in timeline and related to corrupted goblinoids and worse. Will catch up now.

Whoever came up with that is my new hero.  I demand pictures of the mini.

I can't get into my own Flickr account, but I know Grumpy's password. ::):

 

I messed up my password somehow, and I may need to create a new account, last time this happened Grump figured it out, so I still have hope.

It took him five minutes, so I need to subtract the image from his Flickr, now that it's on mine.

 

I gave him a choice, figure out my password or not visit his own account until after Birthday.

 

His words "I thought we were skipping my birthday this year to focus on Brigid's"

 

As IF! ::wow:

Waffled for a while, then ordered the miniature. I hope I have better luck than Grump did.

 

Grump has had a miniature for me on back order for THREE MONTHS! But someday I am getting a beholder, and I have plans, oh yesssss... :;,;:

 

I found out about it while we were camping. He gave me some very nice chocolates and then apologized because the miniature that was SUPPOSED to be with the chocolates had still not come in.

 

They still have a few levels to go, so I am not worried.

 

This Friday is the first trip to Xen'drik. There will be dinosaurs, and a crashed airship.

 

They found papers in the ruins of Metrol about the salvaging of a Creation Forge made long, long before the warforged were supposedly invented. I may give the players tinfoil hats, because they are delving into conspiracy theory territory.

 

Which will lead to a dungeon crawl, because I really want to try running a dungeon crawl!

I am going to redo the picture when I get the miniature in hand and painted.

 

I've gotten attached to that figure. ::):

      A tall hunchbacked moss green creature dash towards you, its long arms stretched out, its sharpened claw hands whipping the air as it tries to get a grip at you. This frightening vision chills your blood. In a few steps, he's on you and you see in its dull, sunken black eyes, that its ugliness has no pair but its ravenous appetite...

      Some more 3D prints for my recent Dungeons & Dragons games.

      First is my fiance's Half-Elf Warlock, designed by HeroForge and printed on my Ender-3.


       
       
      Next, a Goliath Barbarian in the same game, the file was designed by the talented Miguel Zavala/DM Workshop.




      Last is the infamous Strahd von Zarovich, printed for our recently finished "Curse of Strahd" campaign.  This design was also by Miguel Zavala.

      So you have seen the minis but what about the rules doc? Well, here is just one example of the art quality thanks to the incredible talents of April Prime! Amazingly, this is still work in progress, but she is working on art for every dog and a few bonus pieces as well....hmmm..maybe art prints should be available...


      Here's a small piece of Dungeons and Doggies fiction to enjoy! Every mini will have an associated 'icon character' pre generated in the rules pack,and for the Cleric role we have Cerysse, gentle but determined protector of her friends. Many thanks to Kate, our writer, for providing this and many other story pieces for the project! We will follow up with a rules preview for the Companion Domain soon!

      Yet another design by Duncan Shadow, the God That Never Was, the Atropal!

      Probably my favorite critter that was added during the 3.X era (not counting Pathfinder since they've added everything from obscure local mythics to cryptids to memes over the years)

      Hello everyone!
      Last week, I posted pictures of one of the two D&D adventuring parties I am DMing (http://forum.reapermini.com/index.php?/topic/81365-my-dnd-adventure-group/). These were minis I painted about a year ago. As there is a second party, I wanted to post some pictures of it as well.
       
      I painted the second batch of minis quite recently, I hope you like them. Here they are :
       
      "60071: Eccardian Drovenge" is Alrune, a Tiefling druid who was raised by Ents. Taking a step back from it, I think tha the blue wasn't the best choice, I should probably have gone for brown on those blue parts. I love the mini but with all those little details it was quite a challenge to paint :

       
      "03828: Crusader Champion (Sword and Shield)" is Guy Saint-Hubert, a human butter maker who decided to become a paladin of the goddess of death, justice and night to avenge his family :

       
      "03476: Kasham, Reptus Wizard" is Kigozaloph Jeanpatrine, a Silver Dragonborn necromancer. I was worried about the metallic paint to make his skin, but i'm happy with the result :

       
      "14567: BSG Hok Sergeant" is Miroslav Bulldosex (sigh), a Halfling fishmonger who decided to quit the civilisation and chose a barbarian life. All the pink marks on his skin are supposed to be scars but I didn't manage to make it obvious :

       
      "14553: Arthrand Nightblade, Wood Elf Sergeant" is Polodriell, an Elf ex-soldier. He lived in a jungle, that's why his arrows are made with parrot feathers. I couldn't manage to make his eyes look good because of the cloak  :
