Second Edition AD&D / The Hangover and Other Movies
« Last post by Shiftkitty on March 05, 2019, 08:48:06 AM »
We had a great game based on "The Hangover"! Our  missing NPC, it turns out, was not on the roof of the tavern, and we didn't recognize the plot at first (we were prepared for a serious game originally), but about a third of the way in we realized the puzzle ahead of us. Our missing friend, it turned out, was desperately clinging to the top of a very tall steeple in another city which we had to sneak in to due to, ummm, events that the party hopes we can forget! Overall it was a crazy fun session, good for a one-off. And I think someone has a bugbear bride somewhere!

What movies have you ever played as D&D or other RPGs, especially if you didn't recognize the plot at first (if ever)?

The most unusual centaur deity is Chitza-Atlan, the Guardian of the Gateway to the Underworld, an interloping undead deity who is said to guard the passage to the underworld and the afterlife.  Little is known of his origins, but he has connections with the lord and lady of the dead, Mictlantecuhtli and Mictanchihuatl, and is known to the Olman peoples of Oerth.

Agreed, I let my wife Liz do the FB thing but I avoid as much as possible. I never got twitter; my life just isn't that interesting and I refuse to post about what sandwich I had for lunch or other exciting activities. :P

While I know forums are on their way out I will stick with them until the very end! ;)

I always loved hearing about your ham&cheese sandwich, though.... why do you rob me of my entertainment? :p

We’re long-distance running to Isengard in this episode! Join DMs Glen, Brian and Fulongamer as they take a close look at the ranger. After answering a couple of emails, they get down to it. First they go in depth on the Ranger class, then they (finally) wrap up their look at slaads with a breakdown of the ones who rule the race, the death slaad, and bring things home with a Brainstorm on a ranger’s redoubt.

Second Edition AD&D / Balador the Master of Mead
« Last post by AuldDragon on February 01, 2019, 12:40:22 PM »
Of the lycanthrope deities, the only benevolent power is Balador the Master of Mead, Father Bear to the werebears. He is a protector of wildlands, and a wise and paternal guardian to his followers. While shy, he is a lover of good tales told around a fire over a shared mug of mead.
