  • 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!
  • Sat, 00:15: Old Bob was a 5th level rogue (assassin), yes.
  • 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.)
  • Sat, 00:17: And also, don’t blame me! Gary Gygax wrote the module. I just updated the stats. XD
  • 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
  • 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
  • Sat, 00:31: So anyway, it’s official: the highest single CR in the adventure is 13. But there’s little chance of “stumbling” into it.
  • Sat, 00:31: I didn’t say “no” chance. ;) But it’s not unlike waltzing into the main thoroughfare of Goblin Town.
  • Sat, 00:32: Well yes, I didn’t actually calculate the CR of attacking the Keep itself. Don’t make me do that. ;P
  • Sat, 00:33: Survival Protip: Don’t try to eat gnoll spears being thrown at you.
  • Sat, 00:35: Note: Attacking the Keep is totally doable if you really want to. More than one campaign has done it. BUT the LG paladin may have issues.
  • Sat, 00:44: Anyway! Having sent my players into fits about the horrors that await them, I think it’s time for me to hit the hay.
  • Sat, 00:44: G’nite world, and have an awesome tomorrow. :)
  • Sat, 09:56: Wait, did someone say it’s @goatmagician’s birthday? Have a happie, Goaty!

  • Sat, 10:28: RT @bengoodridge: As a published novelist and student of deconstructionist theory, the spelling of "Froot Loops" offends me. ...Oo! Free p…
