The boys are getting into trouble and then trouble comes looking for them.
Fighting in a tavern. . . how typical.
Skipped a session (bad audio), so here’s where we’re at- time for the boys to play good cop, bad cop.
The trail of the wayward wolves leads the party to unexpected visitors.
The party is out tracking wolves, will Lassaran ever be safe again? Tune in, drop out, roll on!
So now that the introductions are out of the way, onto adventuretime! The town is preparing for the wedding and everyone wonders what’s the deal with the pearl. The boys head off into the woods to capture a boar of mythic proportion. . .
The maiden voyage of our D&D 5th Edition live play podcast.
All the talk of dropping a dime and a half on some big books is rendered moot when you consider that WotC is giving the game away for free. “But that’s not the game,” you say. Au contraire, mon frere. It is the game. It is the whole game. It is the only thing you need to play the game. The “Basic Game” will be a free pdf download available on July 15 and will cover the basic game-play rules required to play the game. I know many of you have created games on a lot less than 96 pages of play-tested rules and recommendations.
If you need a little more guidance, or for those of you who have never played D&D (or any RPG for that matter), then WotC is releasing the Starter Box Set for $19.99 (might as well be free). Twenty dollars practically doesn’t count as a purchase, it costs more to drive to Quizno’s and get a sloppy hot sandwich and soda pop (for those of you doing the math in your heads, include gas money). For twenty, you get 2 books totaling 96 pages, 6 dice, 5 pre-generated characters with supplemental reference material and a sweet box to keep it all in. There’s an adventure all laid out for you and your friends, if everyone chips in 5 bucks you can have hours and hours of entertainment and still have enough money to buy one of those fat tubs of Red Vines.
“But I want the books man!” Of course you do, we all do. But do you need them? I mean really, really need them. If the answer is “no,” then your problem is solved. If the answer is yes, then you will find a way to get the books. Dig through your couch cushions, don’t buy the X-large popcorn when you go see Guardians of the Galaxy, and stop going to Quizno’s for Christ’s sake.
