We continue our playthrough of Gygax’s Village of Hommlet with a (mostly) successful incursion into the moathouse.
And we have a new player! Romil joined us for his first RPG session ever. I’m sorry that it had to be with us.
We talk about why Daniel is making everyone make strength checks to open doors. It’s because he’s an ultra-orthodox Moldvayan.
We also mention the Order of the Stick; you may find it amusing.
You can grab a $5 pdf of the module from drivethrurpg here.
Erratum: John consulted with a “snake expert,” who said that snakes would not feast upon a dead body, as Daniel ruled in this game. Sorry, players: next time you’ll have to come up with alternate tactics.
