Random ttrpg Thoughts

Restart

Well, barely got started with my husband in Dungeon of the Mad Mage & decided to invite a few others to play. We've barely gotten past the entry point & no encounters yet so I don't feel that bad asking my husband if it's cool we do a restart. Kind of looking forward to the party not being mostly NPCs. I hope you have an excellent week filled with epic adventure! -Orbb

Random Superstitions

Are you superstitious about your dice? The way you set them up? Or maybe the way you roll them? I have a specific order I always put my dice in around the border of my tray. I cannot roll at all until I check to make sure that my idle dice are resting on any number BUT a 1.

I hope you have an excellent week filled with epic...

I May Have Found a Way

I have been trying to find the time, without cutting into my existing games, to DM my husband through Dungeon of the Mad Mage.

I completely forgot, until reviewing my notes, that we left the last session with a boss fight cliffhanger. Yep, initiative was rolled, then the session closed. So this time, rather than destroy random scenery around the dungeon, we faced the final fight in Cragmaw Castle. Not sure if they'll go to Wave Echo next or follow up with Thundertree next. Think I might...

Best Laid Plans

I'm hoping we get a chace to pull out the kid's campaign this weekend. If all goes well I should be able to talk a bit about how that goes next week. Seems likely I will be talking about maiming, or at least attempts to maim, furniture, either in a dungeon or along the way. Almost feel like I should intro the concept of a mimic, lol. If I'm feeling particularly evil I might give them a rust monster (insert evil laugh here). I hope you have an excellent week filled with epic adventure! -Orbb
