Adventure (Recap and) Sound Bites

Another good session last night run by +Rob Conley. From a tactical standpoint it was particularly satisfying. We did recon, made a good plan, set up an escape route, designated a rally point, entered, killed a few baddies quickly and silently, took limited loot, didn't get distracted by the cumbersome stuff, and when things inevitably did go south and the remaining baddies swarmed out, our mage cast "web" to slow them, and we high-tailed it along our escape route and made it back to safety.

We're getting better at decisively giving better than we get in D&D 5E. The past few sessions we been using more and more fighting withdrawals, ambushes, and hit and run tactics. Last night we saw something like six bad guys KIA, and had only one PC lose 6 HP during the incursion. Not a bad score at all.

I love it when a plan comes together.

Here are the sound bites from the last two sessions. Enjoy!

A: "Is that some kind of art?"
B: "No, it's Metallica."

"You see the spider and you have an attack."
A delightful piece of lexical ambiguity.

"The druid hands you a brownie – you just earned a brownie point!"

On seeing a Grick (a giant serpent with a parrot beak):
"Quick! Offer it a cracker!"

"As we elves like to say: That's 10 pounds of ugly in a 5-pound bag."

"Better to steal his mount than to mount his steel."

On being attacked by a flock of stirges:
A: "Oh, no! I got a pubis in me."
B: "Boy, I hate to think what that stirge must be doing to you."


  1. It might have been a pot brownie!

  2. All games are made better with jabs at Metallica.

    1. Thanks, Fran!

      Hope life's treating you well!

  4. These are great. I don't hear you guys anymore now that Tim has his headphones on. These were good. Thanks for the post.

    1. Plus there's the fact that while the rest of us are really loud and raucous, Tim is always very quiet and well behaved.
