95 – Mortality is a Big Deal for Me (ggnoRE:PLAY Alabamia 5)

An intimate session. John/Evenstar and Tim/Cleophus pick up some hirelings and explore the dragon shrine again.

Henchmen

Jeff Rients made a lovely table/mechanic for acquiring hirelings and henchmen. You can grab the pdf that Daniel made of Jeff’s rules here. It looks a little something like this.

Skerples

Skerples made a fantastic post taking snippets about historical rulers and turning them into random tables. Plus we’re continuing to play this session in the Tomb of the Serpent Kings.

80 – ggnoRE:PLAY – The Village of Hommlet (Part 5 Final)

We finish playing through the classic Gygaxian tournament module, T1: The Village of Hommlet. Show notes: https://ggnorecast.com/80.

Unfortunate note: our mic input was apparently on the wrong setting, and so Daniel and Tim sound like they’re in the next room. 😐

78 – ggnoRE:PLAY – The Village of Hommlet (Part 4)

We continue playing through the classic Gygaxian tournament module, T1: The Village of Hommlet.

We figure out how grappling interacts with dodging. Namely, dodging doesn’t affect grapple attempts (because, while it is an attack action, it does not involve an attack roll). So if one of your players is tanking up in a chokepoint, grab em and drag em outta there.

74 – ggnoRE:PLAY – The Village of Hommlet (Part 2)

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.

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.
