117 – re:play Hot Springs Island 2/

We continue our actual play of Hot Springs Island, using a hacked up version of 5e to be more like the upcoming Pathfinder 2e playtest. This one has us fully exploring a hex and getting sidetracked by film criticism and grits criticism.

116 – re:play Hot Springs Island 1/

We start our actual play of Hot Springs Island, using a hacked up version of 5e to be more like the upcoming Pathfinder 2e playtest. This one explains the procedures of the book from the GM and player sides and gives some insight into what actually running the thing is like.

111 (ggnoRE:PLAY) One Hex Traveled – Tomb of Annihilation Part 3

We continue our game of WotC’s newest module, Tomb of Annihilation. It’s a remix of Tomb of Horrors and Dwellers of the Forbidden City.

We, uh, travel 10 miles in this episode. But that’s more entertaining than it might sound. We hope.

103 – A D&D Manifesto

It’s Daniel’s birthday, and Jim interviews him on what Daniel’s ideal D&D campaign would be. Dropping fundamental knowledge. Learn why clerics are objectively the best class. Learn the lowest common denominator of D&D characters as such. Hear our players express many different perspectives re: expectations of game, genre, etc. Discover the O B J E C T O F T H E G A M E. Opinions expressed are solely the opinion of Daniel but nevertheless should be recognized universally.

Recapping an actual bossfight with special mechanics you can steal and an abortive PC kingship.

We reference skeleton jellies, which I think Arnold K made up.

When Daniel talks about Apocalypse World style task resolution, here’s how he does it in 5e:

  • DC 20: all good
  • DC 12: successful generally, but with some complication
  • Less: bad

Daniel doesn’t use this unless there’s some way to make the 12-19 result interesting; otherwise, he defaults to DC 15 for a binary success target.

Daniel’s new ruling based on Tim’s shenanigans: if an item’s container is not explicitly marked on your sheet, Daniel assumes it’s stored in the worst place possible when it matters most.
