*rodo ignores all the fuzz about buzz

We should check in with the Captain of the guard in town, he should probably know where this Jaroo.

But, I agree with Lessiah my feet are soaring because of draggin' t'is heavy armor all the way, we should probably rest a few hours at the inn.

You all meet at a head off to the inn.






The moment Lessiah steps in, she gets hit on by a drunken local.













Thog and Laster find ale and information, but can only afford the ale.












Hate to say this, but you guys are broke.  The cost of the inn room + food will completely bankrupt you all.












Elladan manages to get some information from one of the bargoers.












…And, here’s our free inn room.






…Oh wait, we’re broke, aren’t we?  :(

[thinks]
maybe I should sell my Official Sacred Heironeous underwear, after all I paid a lot for them a few years back, it's meant to be valuable.
I wonder if this guy will take it?

[/thinks]

*rodd pulls it's pants down just a bit so the weird man gets a peek

[whispers]
Will you take these official sacred Heironeous underware as payment, I paid 20 gp last year for them.

[in-character]Great job buying all that ale you monkey-blooded simpletons.  I haven't gotten any and now we're out of money to catch that gambling cheat with!  We better clear out the moathouse of any forces of evil hiding in there and take their loot as reward for a job well done so we can catch that cheat in the act.[/in-character]

Lester: Simpleton? You're the elvish three-quarter wit that would be next to useless if not for the saving graces of muscle. Learn how to impale a kobol on a spike of energy and then you can call me a simpleton.

Re: Let's Play: The Temple of Elemental Evil! Now with 100% more Dungeon Masters.
It’s decided!  The party sets out towards the moathouse in search of loot and experience.

Rodd figures that it might be a good idea to heal his broken nose with a spell.



As it so happens, good-aligned clerics can turn any spell they have prepared into a healing spell.  I’ll explain more about how spell preparation works later on.



Level 0 ‘cantrip’ spells as a rule are less-then-useful, so the party’s still good to go despite having used up a couple of spells beforehand.





The world map!



Suddenly, a wild bard appears!

This is an example of a random encounter that can occur when traveling.  The encounter is usually a hostile one.  In this case, it’s a friendly elven bard.





Bard meets bard.













After a short conversation, our heroes continue on their journey.

And I was so hoping to get a combat encounter out of creepy drunk dude. Next time, hit on the Halfling instead.

The group was insistent about not meeting at an inn this time, but I got them in one anyways! Then they spent all their money. Op success.

They tried to recruit an NPC, twice. This is going to be terrible enough already with eight people under direct player management. I forbid it.

Re: Let's Play: The Temple of Elemental Evil! Now with 100% more Dungeon Masters.
After three hours of hiking through swamp and bog, while fending off giant mosquitoes and creepers, all while cutting through vines and overgrowth, our heroes finally arrive.







One never know what might jump out of the water to eat our intrepid travelers.  Like, say, this giant frog.





The frog charges at Elladan, obscuring the camera with a conjured tree.





Fighters have a LOT of combat options in this game.  They have more combat options at level 1 then some RPG’s provide to endgame characters.







However, Single Attack, Full Attack, Charge Attack, and Move are the four main options at this stage of the game.

Single attack is pretty much what it says on the tin.

Full attack:  If you have multiple attacks per turn, this will let you make use of them all.  However, this is a full-round action, meaning you can’t move beforehand.

Charge Attack:  Single Attack + Movement, combined into one.  Gives a +2 to your attack roll, but you can only charge in a straight, unobstructed line.

Move:  Allows you to, well, move.  Uses up the movement portion of your turn.







Lyndus starts the battle off with a charge attack.  Her hammer bounces harmlessly off of the fat frog.







Thog has even worse luck.

…Hang on, why is Thog getting an armor penalty?  Bards should have light armor proficiency.  Will have to look into this once the battle ends.





A hit!  Yes!  Too bad the thing still has 14 HP remaining.





Two critical failures in the same turn.  What is this?





Our two mages are up next.  Magic Missile, thankfully, is a guaranteed hit.







Damage is light, but that’s more then what can be said of most of our group.









The frog tries to snatch Rodd up with its long, sticky tongue, but instead manages to tangle up its own tongue.





Rodd runs –past- the frog so he can get behind the thing.  Unfortunately, running past an enemy in melee carries a significant penalty in this game.





Fortunately, the frog is rather tongue-tied at the moment.





The following is a prime example of how NOT to fight.  At least Lyndus managed a hit.





It’s official.  The dice are trying to kill me.





Elladian drives his blade into the frog, nearly cutting it in two, ending the battle, and spraying frog goo all over the place.  Everyone earns 22 xp for the terrible encounter.  Only 978 xp left until next level!





Now that the battle is over, let’s take a closer look at what is causing Thog’s penalty.

Oh, this would explain it.  I was under the impression Hide Armor was light armor.





Fortunately, Thog has a spare set of clothes in his bag.





Somehow, despite all of this, the party remained at full HP, and thus is still in good condition to continue.

Today, the party was attacked by a giant frog. The important thing was that with all eight of them, and this really tickles me, had trouble killing it. No, I don't get it either. My first party had six and managed to take down a White Dragon lo those eons ago in AD&D, but this collection of yahoos can't handle a Giant Frog. Lady Luck and Admiral Awesome had simply deserted the room. The dice betrayed their masters.

If this keeps up I may have to make revisions. Again.

Dear diary

Today my new found companions (who are these people anyway?) encountered a giant fluffy squirrel (or it could be a frog, I forgot) and did battle with it. It was a really entertaining sight, like a bunch of clowns they charged on the purple porcupine frog and bounced off on it. Nearly hitting themselves in the process. The frog's tongue in the meantime got all tangled up. It was like one of those funny stories bards tell to childeren.
I think I accidently did something magical as I was laughing...

Do tell, what kind of loot were you expecting the frog to have?

It's a frog.  It doesn't come wearing expensive jewelry, with a big coin sack tied to it.  (And if it was, it would have a owner that would object to you robbing it.)
