Eberron Game! No Auld Grumpies Allowed!

Didn't want to read it unless I could run it, but Grump has said that this AP isn't one he is likely to run, so I may look at it anyway. He HASN'T read it.

 

I did have fun running Serpent's Skull.

 

But I like Eberron SO much! I didn't like it. Didn't like it. Didn't like it, and then something clicked and I suddenly GOT the setting.

 

I had been trying to fit it into the Tolkien mold, and it does not fit that at all!

It certainly never hurts to read through it. My old DM used to tab a ton of things in every book and adventure he had, so that he could use those pieces and add them into his own adventure he was running.

I got Grump's warforged to drop the F Bomb when he realized what his old teacher was up to. ::D:

 

Playing three factions that he has reason to hate against each other, and taking money from all of them.

 

What Grump doesn't know is that his teacher had family in Cyre on the Day of Mourning, and he is taking out his anger on anyone he can blame.

 

He wants to see the world burn.

 

At heart he is more con man than vigilante, and is using shadows to fight shadows.

You're a deviously clever DM. ^_^

I picked Grump up at work today, and while I was waiting for him one of his coworkers told me that he talks about my game "all the time" ::D:

 

She also plays D&D, so it's not like he is just talking to random people, but is sure sounds like he is enjoying himself!

 

She said she didn't realize Grump was a roleplayer at first because he "so doesn't look like one". I am SOOO going to razz him about that. ::P: 

 

He's telling WAR STORIES about my game! :lol:  And THAT makes me feel like a REAL DM!

Just have his character be kidnapped, tied down, covered with honey and then rescued by sheep! See if he tells about that one!

I WAS just about done with the current adventure.

 

Then I found Baba Yaga in our Bones box. :devil:

 

An old and mostly forgotten goddess of the hungry winter seems a good version for Karnnath. I don't think she would like the Silver Flame. And would like the werewolves.

 

I think as the party leaves they will be sent to find out what happened to the cult temple they had just raided. SHE will be waiting, with company. If they are smart, and they ARE, then they will parley, not fight.

Nice change!

 

If you are looking for some good Eberron ideas, I have been lucky enough to have been working with some fairly big names in the Eberron community on one of the adventures in the Convergence Manifesto adventure line (the one I have been working on is #11 and isn't out yet). They showcase a nice variety of what Eberron is all about and therefore might be good to run or even just steal ideas from.

      I've been building a small D&D Eberron campaign recently, and it's put me in the mood to find appropriate minis among my collection. As a result, I've been gravitating towards the Stonehaven gnomes I have.  These are the latest - an artificer and a thief.
       
      As I was seeking out color inspiration, I came upon the team colors of West Ham United and that was what I used for the artificer.

      From the Mid 2000's attempt to revive the D&D Chainmail come this Battered Troll Skeleton which was the biggest mini in the Ahumut's Legion Faction box. He has been sitting unpainted for many years as I  have found with many of the minis the D&D produced at the time they where a pain to assemble. In his case the full arm and no peg or post and his skull with a bit of the neck was its own part with a minuscule peg and post that did not fit right and would never be able to support the weight of the head. also with the base you had to hand cut the slot that you would tab him into which is the only time i have ever seen that on a mini base. So finally after adding metal post to his parts and getting him on a base I sat down and painted him.
      He is your basic skeleton but I do like the little additions on the mini such as the splint holding the leg together and the leather wrap with a nail holding the arm in place  as well as the plate bolted on to the chest. It give the mini a bit more character. After finishing him i wanted to work on basing which is a part of the process i tend to neglect so tryed my had at some mud texture paint and still trying to get decent at using static grass and tufts. think it turned out alright but can always use more practice.
      Also interestingly enough he is about the same size as the  77004 Cave Troll. So its like a before and after diet pic

      Hellborn Troll
      from WizKids' Nolzur's Marvelous Miniatures
       
      I stopped at AC Moore today and picked up one of the FolkArt Pickling Washes I didn't have while my wife was shopping for school play costume materials.  Nearby I found FolkArt Ultra Dyes and picked up two colors to check out; Purple Rain and Pucker Up (a yellow).
       

       
      I have enjoyed using the Glass Enamels with the long cure time before and thought these might work similarly.   I decided to wash my troll with the Purple Rain to see how it comes out and goes on.
       

       
      It's fairly thick out of the bottle but I might not have shaken it enough.  It was taking forever to dry so I hit it with some Testors Dullcote to speed the process and reduce the shine.  It's glossy like inks.
       
      Next, I used Reaper Blood Red to give him the Hellborn look I wanted.
       

       
      Then I pulled out Reaper Violet Shadow to get his hair, teeth and claws darkened.
       

       
      I then went back over the boney bits with the FolkArt Ultra Dye.  It'll put the glossy touch to the claws and teeth.
       
      I am quite happy with him so far.  
       
      Stay tuned and Enjoy!

      This small project is to fund a collection of little encounters that can be dropped into an existing adventure for low level adventurers.  I backed his previous project for alternate character backgrounds, and he delivered the PDFs early.
