RotRL – The Golemworks Incident

This session was a little different than our usual campaign episodes. It didn’t involve the main roster (for the most part.) No, this session was a chance to let the players scratch that itch and play their backup character. Anyone who has played tabletop RPGs knows that when you make a character, they’re just numbers on a page until you take them out for a spin. When they interact with the environment – and other players – they go from being a concept to an actual character. Personalities begin to develop.

That’s what I wanted for these characters. Give them some dice time, and let them interact with the World. See if what worked on paper translated to the actual game. This session was a one-shot to get the group (affectionately known as the B-Team) a bit of experience so that these backup characters could be called up to the main roster with a bit of dice-time to them.

How did the session go? Well, good for some. For others, not so much. Read for yourself in Rise of the Runelords Episode 29 – The Golemworks Incident!

RotRL – The Smoldering Sawmill

Kilgor – I don’t just make dead people, now I… see them?

Rise of the Runelords – Episode Twenty-Seven

Having survived an ambush at the Magnimar townhouse of Aldern Foxglove, the Saviors of Sandpoint obtained evidence suggesting Aldern’s involvement with the mysterious group known as the Brothers of the Seven. They also recovered the deed to Foxglove Manor, which verified not only Aldern’s connection to the Brothers of the Seven, but that he was making payments to them at a place cleverly called the Seven’s Sawmill.

Would the sawmill bring the heroes one step closer to stopping the ritual murders from continuing in both Sandpoint and Magnimar? Would they discover the identity of the mysterious Xanesha, Mistress of the Seven?

How to Build Thanos

It’s the most wonderful time of the year… the end of it. At least, when it comes to this year – 2020 hasn’t been as fantastic as some may have thought. Sure the tabletop crew thought 2020 meant Double Crits y’all. Who knew it meant double crits against us.

Speaking of cosmic forces laying waste to humanity, Tulok the Barbarian created a build for the Mad Titan himself, Thanos. This build was for Dungeons and Dragons 5e, but it’s easy enough to use the flavor and mechanics for this and turn this into a Pathfinder build. Something for everyone! Perfectly balanced, as all things should be…

So join me, won’t you, and celebrate the end of 2020 with a snap of the fingers.

Second Darkness – Episode 72

Lasdolon has plenty to smile about.

Well this is it. The final showdown between the Guardians of Golarion and the mad drow Lasdolon. The stakes have never been higher for the heroes, and dying at the hands of Lasdolon would probably be preferred rather than living but failing to stop him from bringing about a Second – and Final – Darkness for the world.

Here it is, the campaign finale for Pathfinder’s Second Darkness – Episode 72!

Second Darkness – Episode 71

Ever so close to the end, the Guardians of Golarion gamble on making a big push to deactivate not one, but two of the protective focus glyphs so that they may take down Lasdolon, the Master Glyph, and save the world of Golarion from destruction!

But first, before they save anything, they must do two important things:

  1. Deactivate the Glyph of Defense and the Glyph of Fury.
  2. Don’t die.

Well, one out of two ain’t bad…
