Character Profile: Ad hoc Discord Group Playing “The Dancing Hut of Baba Yaga”

As some of you know, I’m back in the hospital for an MS flare up. Not fun. That said, I got bored last night and began running Baba Yaga with a group consisting of a couple of people I know in person and two of my Discord internet friends via voice chat on Discord. ThisContinue reading “Character Profile: Ad hoc Discord Group Playing “The Dancing Hut of Baba Yaga””

The Australian Nightmare

Once again we take a stroll down Amnesia Lane back to the mid-1980’s, and this time the game was Chaosium’s Call of Cthulhu. For those of you that are unfamiliar, CoC is a cosmic survival horror game based on the works of H.P. Lovecraft; it’s a very fun, very deadly game where you’re really justContinue reading “The Australian Nightmare”

The Dancing Hut: Return With an Offering

So…everyone, by now, should know that I try to tell these stories objectively; that is, I try to tell the story as it happened and no more. I really can’t do that today…it was too funny and just too bizzare. If my objectivity breaks, well, I apologize…also, I don’t have too many pictures for thisContinue reading “The Dancing Hut: Return With an Offering”

The Dancing Hut of Baba Yaga: Meeting Baba Yaga

Due to my being behind and the fact that I haven’t painted anything (my MS tremors have prevented me from doing so), I’m going to catch up from last Tuesday’s session! This is especially essential considering tomorrow’s post is the continuation. When we last met, our party found themselves in a rather off kitchen, withContinue reading “The Dancing Hut of Baba Yaga: Meeting Baba Yaga”

Rime of the Frostmaiden: Cauldron Conundrum and Ghostly Possessions

Having left off before a fight, the party engaged the three duergar. Seeing they were outmatched, one tried to run, to warn Xardorok, but was shot down quickly by party spells and arrows. Having dealt with the evil dwarves on the ferry, the party decided to head off along the coast to find the lostContinue reading “Rime of the Frostmaiden: Cauldron Conundrum and Ghostly Possessions”

DM Story: Tapping Him Gently With My Warhammer

Ah, the mid-1980’s. We had no computers. We had no cars. What we did have is the living room of my friend Bob’s house and his saintly mother who never complained about a mob of teenage boys in her house every Saturday and Sunday for hours at a time. Warhammer Fantasy Roleplay was my 2ndContinue reading “DM Story: Tapping Him Gently With My Warhammer”

How-To DM: Building Encounters – Design

by yourdorkmaterials A Moon Druid, a Barbarian, a Rogue, a Monk and a Wizard walk into a cave…sounds like the start of a joke, doesn’t it? But a party like this can be a nightmare to build challenging encounters for. The Druid and Barbarian effectively have twice (or even three times at low levels) theContinue reading “How-To DM: Building Encounters – Design”

Player Character Party Highlight

This week, instead of my normal Tuesday Game Summary, I wanted to do something different. So…I’ve been thinking of explaining why the varying adventuring parties do what they do in my posts, but it always seemed to get in the way of telling what happened. Therefore, I’m going to give you an idea of whoContinue reading “Player Character Party Highlight”

Rime of the Frost Maiden: Ascent of Kelvin’s Cairn

When last we left off, The party was at the abandoned base camp at the foot of Kelvin’s Cairn, having found Garret’s dog sled and dogs, as well as those from the adventuring company he was guiding. Secure in the knowledge that the dogs would be safe, the parties staked their axe beak mounts andContinue reading “Rime of the Frost Maiden: Ascent of Kelvin’s Cairn”

Another Tuesday Prequel

So the last time I updated everyone on what happened in the Tuesday game before I started recording, was the 25th of September. We left off with losing track of Tilna, and the party locating her somewhere in the sewers. Following their locate person, they began seeing a strange symbol written in chalk on theContinue reading “Another Tuesday Prequel”
