After Action Report: Janu 13

Marlon, Bob and Dave did board game night on Sunday.

We played 2 cooperative board games:

"Agents of Smersh", which we've played before, but which we flailed around blindly trying to remember how the rules actually worked.   About half way through we got it all under control and managed to win relatively easily.

"Escape from 100 Million BC" where we crashed our time machine and had to search the prehistoric wasteland for missing pieces, and rescue castaways (including Daniel Boone, The Mona Lisa lady and Teddy Roosevelt) who had been sucked into time vortexes, and send them back.  We very narrowly won that one, but returned to a modern Earth that had been covered by flood waters due to all the paradoxes we caused.

Bob also showed us some of the products of his new 3-D printer, which were pretty swell.   I was looking at "Thingiverse" and thought that making a bunch of dungeon tiles might be a good use for the thing.   We'd then have a light-weight but modular way of setting up dungeon games.   I saw a couple types that might be perfect.

New Campaign and Upcoming Schedule

Game Schedule: after I get Annie back to school this coming Sunday, all my conflicts should be wrapped up.   The game schedule should be as follows.

NEW CAMPAIGN:  I am going to start the Blueholme, Old-School D&D campaign on Sunday, February 10.   I've sort of lost all track of where the 5e campaign was going and what was happening and why.   I need a little more time to get a pack of adventures ready and so forth.

Next Games:

Sunday January 13:  Don't know exactly what we're doing.   Give me a shout out if someone has a board game or two they'd like to do, or if you have something you'd really like to do for 5e.  If no one has any suggestions, I'll try to have a 5e dungeon ready of some sort

Sunday January 27:  I'd like to do a big battle using lots of miniatures and the Blueholme rules, just to see how the chainmail weapons rules mesh with the D&D to hit system, and mostly because I like doing big battles with lots of miniatures.

Sunday February 10:  New Campaign Begins:  character creation (fast!) and first adventure.

If you want to look at the current state of rules and setting for the Thranconia (Blueholme) Campaign: check out the wiki:

I bought a 3D printer for my Birthday/Xmas present. Hopefully I'll have something to show for next game session.It's a Creality Ender. Rated best in it's price range and there's tons of youtube pages for it. Open to suggestions for figures, terrain, whatever!

Upcoming Schedule of Game

Holidays and my wife's surgery and ferrying kid to/from college has the next few weeks jammed up for me.   It looks to me like the next time I can schedule a game is Sunday, January 13.

So, barring any weird developments, pencil that date in.

Blurry Buildings for EVERYONE!

On Sunday, Andrew, Jason and I did some building and painting of miniatures and terrain.  Unfortunately, when I went to take pictures this morning, I found that my phone camera lens now has a huge crack in it.     Here's the best I could do:

Thranconia Hack wiki populated

The wiki for the new campaign for probably this winter has been created by Andrew and has begun to be populated by me.   So far, I've put in the House Rules (some important combat modifications and some less important magic item creation rules) and lists of races/species from the Blueholme creature section that could be used for PC's.

The wiki is located through this link:

Thranconia Hack

And now also appears on the Interesting Links to the right of this page

Next I'll begin to add Setting Information

Next Game Announcement

Our next game day is Sunday November 25.  Because it is the holiday weekend, we have decided to schedule a "paint and build day."  So bring your brushes, minis and chunks of cardboard or Styrofoam.
