The Litko Figure Stands only work for 25 mm bases (circle or square are separate items) so they do have some limits. But I just used them in a recent encounter in my 5E campaign and they work great for humanoids, especially if you want something to fly right overhead of a PC. The Chessex dice containers are better for larger creatures/monsters like the Giant Spiders. I like having the flexibility of using both.
Session 12: What Lurks Beneath the Golden Tankard has been posted to my 5E campaign journal. This my homebrew world. Generic fantasy world heavily influenced by sword and sorcery, especially Robert E. Howard’s Conan stories. This adventure was an adaptation of Nord Games “Creaking in the Dark” adventure module. I’m a stickler for new players starting at 1st level in my campaign. I had three 1st-level characters and two 4th-level characters. Worked out just fine.
New blog post of my 5E campaign journal: Lord Sketch of the Sewers of Cyr. Over the last year and a half of running my campaign I’ve mostly moved to using 2D map tiles/battlemaps with 3D scatter instead of full-on 3D terrain. I know I’ll come back to more 3D later, but the 2D map tiles have worked great and you really can enhance the feel of it with some 3D scatter (like tables, chairs, bookshelves, etc.). What do you prefer to use?
cowboyleland when I first saw your Dark (Age) Knight as part of the forum hoard in Jan 2017, I knew I had to find a way of incorporating him in my campaign. Thankfully, I already had a deposed constable in the main home base of my players: the trade-city of Cyr. So, I concocted a story of him turning to vigilantism after going into hiding. My players were impressed when I put your paper mini on the table! At the end of the adventure the Dark (Age) Knight gave the players a wand of improved minor illusion that casts a bat symbol on the nighttime sky in order to call for his assistance
New blog post of my campaign journal. Session 14: The Vault of Pallon the Pirate based on a one-shot/side adventure by Jon Sawatsky in Prepared! published by Kobold Press. The tiles/terrain used were exclusively Inked Adventures. My style of DMing is definitely episodic, but I have a linking thread through most of my sessions.
Always entertaining. Since these adventures are nine months old, have you been having more adventures this year to keep the posts flowing?
I’m just trying to get caught up. I didn’t start the blog until the end of last summer. We play in my campaign about once a month. I have a good group of players with three of us regularly DMing. We have four active campaigns going on now! Five more sessions will get me caught up on the blog, but we’ll probably play once or twice in my campaign before I get there. I’m a university professor and don’t teach during the summers, so now is my chance to get caught up .
New blog post is up. This session was the second installment of our Halloween adventure from last year. Features an underground tomb and lots of undead. Paper minis by distrigillator, Paper Forge, old squirmydad, and Brave Adventures.
New post is up. This adventure was based on The Lands of Lunacy by Fail Squad Games. The adventurers were transported to a different dimension—Into the Chaos Void and had to find there way out. The Lands of Lunacy Setting Guide provides a nice way to handle the situation where only a fraction of your players can show up and the missing players will mess up the continuity of the campaign. Don’t cancel! Run The Lands of Lunacy instead. I ran a lot of this Theater of the Mind except the first and last big battles.
marcpasquin: After Goscinny died, people thought it would be the end of Asterix as he was the writing part of the team but Uderzo managed to keep it going and eventually pass on the torch to new teams that still produce albums to this day.

marcpasquin: Asterix was such a big part of my childhood. Not only did I read all the albums but every years the cartoon movies were part of "Ciné-Cadeau", a holiday time programming block on Télé-Québec that showed animated movies for kids.

lightning: I cannot count how often I read Asterix and Obelix as a kid. Loved how it always ended at a big town dinner around a huge bonfire and the troubadour was gagged somewhere so he couldn't sing. Good times!

Parduz: I still love that comics. Some of them (around the middle age of Asterix production) have some of the best story/dialogues/jokes ever.

squirmydad: God I LOVED those books as a child. Sorry to see him pass.

wyvern: RIP Albert Uderzo, co-creator with René Goscinny of the Asterix comic books. [And no, he died from a heart attack.]

Vermin King: Trump is an S-hole, but Clinton should be in prison. I don't like Biden, but at least it's a step up from 2016
Mar 22, 2020 18:40:25 GMT -9
Vermin King: Well, my efforts to reboot 2020 haven't worked, so I probably won't try the others. BTW, I have always said I am an equal opportunity politician basher. Trump is undoubtedly an ass, but I still have to look at him being the lesser of two evils.
Mar 22, 2020 18:39:00 GMT -9
Parduz: well, then may i ask if we go pre 1994 so we could get rid of Bungasconi...
Mar 22, 2020 17:06:54 GMT -9
ignatious: perhaps a system restore on 2020 might work, and if we go pre 2016 maybe we could get rid of the trumpvirus.
Mar 22, 2020 8:19:43 GMT -9
Vermin King: I tried, but it hasn't worked so far. Maybe I will try again
Mar 22, 2020 4:46:23 GMT -9
Parduz: pls reboot the 2020, then.
Mar 22, 2020 1:07:14 GMT -9
Vermin King: Rebooting the whole system fixed it

lightning: and yet you are able to post here @vermin king?
Mar 21, 2020 5:34:43 GMT -9
Vermin King: Panic -- when you've been sick during a pandemic and have to self quarantine, and then wake up to no cable or internet
Mar 21, 2020 3:48:57 GMT -9
Parduz: ... and some upper lip mods? Perhaps?
Mar 20, 2020 14:44:52 GMT -9
marcpasquin: @vermin King to be fair, different hairstyle, costume type and about 15 years in between the 2 roles.

Vermin King: I feel like an idiot. Didn't realize that Vanessa (Deadpool) was Inara Serra until last night. Duh
Mar 20, 2020 4:10:55 GMT -9
Vermin King: temperature is down again this AM, but lots of drainage and throat is back to being sore
Mar 20, 2020 4:09:37 GMT -9
Vermin King: I was feeling better yesterday and fever was down all day, but I realized when the show I was watching on TV was almost over, that I hadn't drank anything for 30 minutes, so I took my temperature and it was back up. highest it has been actually
