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.

      I'm playing a Firbolg Druid in a campaign and couldn't find any mini to represent him.  So I came across this Longtooth Barbarian and decided to convert one. I removed the sword on the back for a backpack, and I gave him a Scimitar.

      This is really sweet and a great introduction to Dungeons and Dragons. I’m kind of astonished — and delighted — that the news site Vox put it up.

      This will be my first time DMing a D&D 5e game. I haven't ever even played 5e. I did run an Earthdawn based game that lasted 3 years so I do have experience DMing. I have also been reading quite a bit to familiarize myself with monsters and terms, etc.
       
      My idea for a campaign is as follows:
       
      The characters wake up in individual cells wearing burlap bags with arm and neck holes. There are skeletons of past captives in the cells. If they look through the bars of their cell doors, they can see 1-2 other cells and some items. The whole point will be to have to talk and work together to get out of the cells. I may have an NPC trapped with them. Now, I am trying to decide if they will find their gear or go about obtaining new. I will decide this Friday night during character creation. If any of them have special personal items that they wo9uld be mad about losing, they will find their gear behind a locked door.
       
      While searching the dungeon they will find a list. They will most likely recognize some of the items on the list as an artifact from their race. They may or may not know where it is supposedly located. There will be clues that someone is wanting to gather all of these artifacts from the different races to perform a binding spell to be able to rule the world and have dominion over all of the races.
       
      They will escape the dungeon. The weather will be horrible and especially if they did not find their gear, they will be miserable. On the road, a coach approaches and stops. The driver calls to whoever is inside the coach and the shade covering the window moves slightly. A voice from inside instructs the driver to help the poor, wretched creatures and help them into the coach. Hopefully, the characters will be miserable enough to accept a ride from a stranger.
       
      At the stranger's manor, it is obvious that he is wealthy but not overly showy. The windows are covered with heavy draperies, supposedly to keep the warmth in since it is cold and rainy outside. The characters will be bathed and fed and given warm clothes. Hopefully they will tell the stranger what happened to them and about the list. Someone (hopefully a character but could be the stranger or the captive NPC) will suggest that they need to hunt down these artifacts and get them before the bad guy does so he is unable to collect them all and perform his ritual. This gives them a reason to travel and gives me the opportunity to plan lots of different types of adventures as the artifacts may be in a tomb, or in ruins, or in a place of honor, etc.
       
      Now, for the bad guy.... Should he be a lich? A Drow? I am hoping that they gather all of the artifacts before they must face the big bad so it should be down the road after they have had time to level up. Of course there will be side quests and adventures as they go along.
       
      My plan is for the big bad to be the stranger who captured them. He had captured others before (the skeletons in the cells) and was just waiting for some smart/tough/persistent enough to escape the dungeon so he would know they would use those attributes to gather the artifacts for him. Too predictable?
       
      Anyway, I am needing ideas on who or what the big bad guy should be. And, since the characters see him and interact with him, if he is a lich or Drow or whatever, how does he disguise himself so the characters don't immediately recognize he is a lich or a Drow or whatever?
       
      Open to ideas! I want to flesh out the baddie. Character creation is Friday night and game begins at noon on Saturday!

      The BBC Archive posted this great clip to their facebook page of a TV segment about role-playing games from 1980.  It's a super time capsule of old games and figures...

      So I'm going to be starting a dwarven reclamation campaign in the fall, and I had 2 copies of the Dwarf butcher. I though it would be perfect to do one as a living butcher (who I can also use as an NPC townie) and his barbarian ancestor spirit that I can put on the table when he's a ragin'.
      So far the living butcher is mostly done (need to do his base and some touchups - I don't know how all of you are doing the eyes, because I can't see them even with a visor), and the ghostly ancestor is mostly done minus the ghostly glow I'll be drybrushing later. I do have a few process pics to post.
