s2e2: Think Before We Think




We are bad at planning prison breaks — somehow we settle on an escape plan — actual D&D.

This episode is more like a documentary on how people come up with goofy D&D plans. It’s half an hour of us figuring out what in the world to do next. It seems to be mostly a process of throwing out the worst ideas we can think of and gradually trying to work out way up. 

CAST

Jim: Dungeon Master

Daniel: Gaul (human druid 1)

For my free human feat at level 1, I chose sentinel, which makes me pretty tanky.

My plan is to class up to druid 2 in order to get wild shape, and then hit up monk for some levels.

This is to make a kung fu panda build, in which I turn into a panda (or whatever) and use kung fu.

Tim: Igneum (human sorcerer 1)

Tim was going for a full on fire fire fire all the time fire draconic sorcerer build.

The action algorithm was something like this: if (fire) or not (fire) then fire.

Apparently, this build gets a bonus to fire bolt. So, yeah. It’s a thing you can do if you like burninating the countryside and/or the peasants.

Asa: Thub-nub (halfling bard 1)

Asa was going for the standard (for our group) heal+debuff bard, I think. But, as you will find out in the next few episodes, this build took a turn for the weiiiiirrrrd.

Starting Out of the Abyss proper — we’re all going crazy — sure hope you like maggots. 

This season, we’re splitting our session into chunks so that we can have a more regular release schedule and also edit the episodes a little more thoroughly, which is to say, edit them at all.

So this episode ends right as we are about to begin coming up with our escape plan.

Here’s the video that I took my awful sound clip from:
