  • Sat, 00:09: Finally finished all the conversions for my Keep On the Borderlands game. Some of the encounters in there are just plain mean. XD
  • Sat, 00:11: Most are survivable if you follow the maxim of “When in doubt, run away!” But it’s definitely not an adventure that will go easy on you.
  • Sat, 00:12: Fortunately, with six players (some of whom are longtime D&D veterans), I think the group can handle it.
  • Sat, 00:13: Hey, you took on a 5th level assassin and three gnolls at 1st level last time, and survived! https://t.co/bgwB7zk2Nt
  • Sat, 00:15: Old Bob was a 5th level rogue (assassin), yes. https://t.co/BUbcTs9sSy https://t.co/Nz2hcckojW
  • Sat, 00:17: Don’t panic! Because of the math of 5E, a 5th level rogue is still only CR 1 by himself. (CR 2 total with pets.) https://t.co/5N2giyK0hH
  • Sat, 00:17: And also, don’t blame me! Gary Gygax wrote the module. I just updated the stats. XD https://t.co/5N2giyK0hH
  • Sat, 00:22: Hmm. Just realized that writeup had an error in it. Bob only did 1+3d6 damage with his unarmed sneak attack, not 1+5d6. Still plenty. �.�
  • Sat, 00:25: Taking 11 points of damage or 18 hardly makes a difference if you’ve only got 8 hp. ;P https://t.co/zWvYAyGtRE
  • Sat, 00:29: 5E doesn’t do overkill. Being strangled by a maniac isn’t going to reduce anyone to a fine red paste in any case. ;P https://t.co/LzQcZxs0pM

Rastan Kill Monsters

The Always DM Blues

(To the tune of “We Didn’t Start the Fire…” by Billy Joel)


Celedras, Arcangalad

Arshan’s always kinda mad

I haven’t played you for a while

Obsidian kills her foes with style


Maedhroc gives his foes the boot

Elsa’s tough but awfully cute

1E rules are dumb and hard

but they made my super-bard


(Singin’)

Referees don’t get to play much

We get all excited, tho we try to hide it

Referees don’t get to play much

But there’ll be no game, if I’m not DM


Playing Lachwen was a blast

but MMO fun doesn’t last

I don’t wanna spend the cash right now

to play my panda monk in WoW


But oh on tabletop to play again

Or just once for my paladin

The 3E rules were quite a cage

for Theran, my poor fighter-mage


My halfling ranger doesn’t have a name

I’d love to play him all the same


My human ranger had a plot device


but tough luck I suck at rolling dice


Natural 1’s all day!

No foes I’ll slay!


What else do I have to say?


(Singin’)

Referees don’t get to play much

We get all excited, tho we try to hide it

Referees don’t get to play much

But there’ll be no game

If I am not

DM…
