DnD 30-Day Challenge – Day 10: Craziest thing that’s happened that you saw (to your character/party/your players, etc.)

Two things, and both happened in the same session!

Ok, so I was a cleric, I think, and I was at home sleeping. I heard a noise in the window, like tac-tac-tac, and went to see what it was. I opened the curtain and saw a majestic white owl there, with eyes that held the wisdom of the universe. I was entranced by it so I opened the window, and when I grazed it with my hand, I was transported to a different place where I found the rest of the party. Continue reading

DnD 30-Day Challenge – Day 9: Favorite character you haven’t played

I don’t really know, it’s probably Brother Torquemada, an Inquisitor-type cleric played by my brother-in-law a lot of years ago. It was a chaotic neutral cleric (not-so) slowly descending into madness, and his favorite thing to do was cleanse the world through fire. It was hilarious!

DnD 30-Day Challenge – Day 8: Favorite Character You Have Played

My favorite character I have played was a Half-Vistani woman called Céline, she was a dancer with a theater troupe and found the rest of the party stranded in the middle of a forest when having some “fun” with a gentleman who didn’t know how to take no for an answer. The gentleman in question was later killed by… something. I was blamed, the party tried to intervene, we were all thrown in jail, and after a lot of strife and conflict, and finding my dying father (who was a rich member of Richemulot’s society) we managed to kill the… thing, that took the life of the not-so-gentle gentleman. The wrath of the Renier family fell upon our group and with the help of a Vistani caravan we managed to cross the mists, but where the Powers decided to throw us, I have no idea.

DnD 30-Day Challenge – Day 7: Favorite Edition

I’m going to say 3.5 is my favorite because it’s less complicated than AD&D (which is what got me started) but is less mechanic than 4th Ed (which was more miniature centered and felt more standardized than I liked). I have been playing 5th Edition but I am not familiar enough with the rules to compare, although it feels like they simplified 3.5 even further, so it’s going pretty well.

DnD 30-Day Challenge – Day 5: Favorite Set of Dice/Individual Die

Who ever said that the worst thing that could happen was to step on a Lego has never stepped on a d4. Those things are dangerous! Whether you’re wearing shoes or not, they WILL harm your feet, no questions asked. Even if a d4 means you’re not doing any damage, a bunch of them can mean a pretty good hit.

My favorite set of dice are the Chessex Borealis, any of them will do, but I own the Teal with Gold and they are a beauty! They look like jewels, I love how sparkly they are, and that d20 is just lucky!

DnD 30-Day Challenge – Day 4: Favorite Game World

RAVENLOFT! ‘Nuff said!

I am a fan of all things terror and Ravenloft appeals to my love of spooky things. The Gothic setting with all its hidden and not so hidden horrors is great if your party takes things seriously and is not joking around all the time. Nothing to ruin a good session like someone faking farting sounds and blaming Count Von Zarovich!

Second place is DragonLance. I have never played in this setting, though, but I have read all the novels, core or not, and I absolutely love the sense of camaraderie and adventure they portray. I am thinking of looking for a group (roll20.net, maybe?) to play online 🙂
