Re: Road Crew New York 2014: The Chaotic Overworld

We just had the final session of this campaign... Originally I thought a nice way to end it is to have the evil PC lead an army against the other PCs in a final war like what is going on in the Knights of the Dinner Table comic. But during the week I talked to some of the players, and they weren't i...

Re: Road Crew New York 2014: The Chaotic Overworld

We finished Baba Yaga, skipped a week, and then played again tonight. I think next week will be the final session. Final part of Baba Yaga: Short Version : They fought a DCC RPG hydra, which was very deadly. I handed out treasure from the Pathfinder Reign of Winter path, which is awesome and all abo...

Re: Road Crew New York 2014: The Chaotic Overworld

The past couple weeks in the epic World Tour 2014 have been taking place inside the legendary Baba Yaga's Hut. I converted the AD&D 1st edition Dragon Magazine adventure to DCC, only to realize that it is sorely lacking in detail. This was solved by using the material from the 4th edition D&D versio...

Re: Road Crew New York 2014: The Chaotic Overworld

We finished The Slaughtergrid last night. Very good adventure! - DCC RPG monster stats are interesting. The PCs are 3rd and 4th level, and still I can get away with using monster stats from the 1st and 2nd level adventures. It's nice. So far there's been almost no "power creep" at all. This is a ver...

Re: Road Crew New York 2014: The Chaotic Overworld

Session 32 is in the books. We are continuing to make our way through The Slaughtergrid. - Maybe it's in there and I missed it, but the adventure doesn't take into account what happens to the monsters when they die. In this dungeon, when you die you are immediately reborn with a mutation. So what I ...

Re: Road Crew New York 2014: The Chaotic Overworld

We got through most of the second level of the Slaughtergrid tonight. Going in, I was a bit worried. The dungeon on paper looked a bit flat. Lots of rooms with kobolds or goblins or gnolls. I thought the players would get bored. I reserved the right to quietly start cutting the dull rooms and gettin...

Re: Road Crew New York 2014: The Chaotic Overworld

I wrote an article about The Croaking Fane here: http://thecampaign20xx.blogspot.com/2014/10/dungeon-crawl-classics-rpg-croaking-fane.html . I had bought a pdf full of monster called The Teratic Tome, as I figured it could be useful for DCC. The monsters ended up being a bit too gory and sexual for ...

Re: Road Crew New York 2014: The Chaotic Overworld

We had to skip a week... I had a lot of real life work to do. We got back to the game on Monday. We finished The Croaking Fane and I ran a short scenario - a "wizard's convention". - Our heroes made their way into the room with the pool full of dreaming toad-men. A huge fight broke out and we almost...

I'd actually run this in D&D Next a year or so ago with a different group of players. 9/22: - Two of the new players (boyfriend and girlfriend) came back. The third guy who ...

Re: Road Crew New York 2014: The Chaotic Overworld

We played again on Monday. I will not make a blog post on this, as I don't think I have all that much to say! The big thing this week is that I brought in some new players. I met them at D&D Encounters the previous wednesday, thought they were cool, and finagled them into this game. It is a sort of ...

Re: Road Crew New York 2014: The Chaotic Overworld

We started The Sea Queen Escapes this week. As I prepared it, I really liked it. A dungeon in a giant turtle's shell... that is epic. I was worried the group would fly through the dungeons really quickly. I didn't have time to prepare the whole adventure and I wasn't sure how long what I had ready w...

I will definitely have them check out the crawler's companion. I forgot all about it! We got a lot less done than I thought we would this week. I figured we'd finish Fate's Fell Hand entirely, but we weren't even close. I like this adventure but I am still confused about a lot of things. This could ...

Pesky, Elzemon and The Blood-Drinking Box is a great adventure. My group enjoyed it as much or more than any other one we've played so far (they really loved The One Who Watches From Below, too). We had a new guy join this week who has never played an RPG before. He picked up on it pretty quick. It ...

Re: Road Crew New York 2014: The Chaotic Overworld

As far as player tactics, for a very long time I took the attitude of "They will make this mistake and learn from it". But what I've found is... they never learn.

Re: Road Crew New York 2014: The Chaotic Overworld

After a bit of a break we got back to the campaign last night. Last week, completely unsolicited, I received a bunch of World Tour stuff in the mail! It was awesome.
