They Always Take the Bait

In game 22, the Old Ones set a fire across the river, just to draw the leaders of the PCs across the river away from Boscovania, so the summoners could attack the settlement. No matter how many times the bad guys try this tactic, using a distraction to draw the PC's in a particular direction, they always fall for it.  Always,  Every Single Time.

They even fell for it a second time the same game.  The attack on the north wall was meant to draw guards away from the other wall to make it easier to attack.  Every Single Time.

Campaign Questions

As you all may or may not know, once Dave closes the box on the current Badlands campaign, I hope to start a new Savage Worlds Campaign. I was inspired by Dave's Badlands campaign being built on top of a previous Lords of Hack campaign, and so I went back to the same well for the "Kings of Orion" campaign I'm working on.

I stumbled over this post on three campaign questions to answer on Gnome Stew today. When I get a chance I will answer these questions for the new campaign. I would appreciate your input on my choices once I have them posted so I can understand if you like where I'm going or if you would prefer something a little different.

The main question about forthcoming Kings of Orion

Of course, the most important question about Andrew's upcoming campaign "Kings of Orion", is of course, whether there will be a deck of henchmen or not.

Interesting Links

I've added a widget to the right-hand side of this blog to include a list of interesting links across the Internet. I've started with our main website and Dave's blog. However, I want to include links to sites that we all would find inspirational and/or interesting to the group. What are the "go-to" sites you all visit on the Internet when you start up the Web? Let's discuss.

I've had all I can stand and I can't stands no more

I'm really bewildered about posting comments.   I sign in with my google account, and it says, both on this blog and Dr Skull's Workshop, that my google account doesn't have access.   I can post comments using the "Name/URL" option on Dr Skull's, but this blog doesn't give you that option.  I seem to be able to post actual posts on both blogs, but not comments.  Seriously, what the H?   Andrew, could you enable the "Name/URL" option for comments?

Somehow, I posted a comment under the Early Memories thread, but now am powerless to do so.

I've been working on a new Savage Worlds campaign based on our very first campaign, and I'm doing my best to generate as many ideas as I can. That way, when the campaign starts I have a whole lot of material to bring to bear to make the characters' adventures interesting.

I'm finding that I'm coming up with a lot of great new ideas in new and strange places. Where do you Hacklords find that you come up with the best gaming ideas?

Early Memories

What is your first memory of RPG gaming? Who was in your very first game group? What game did you play? How old were you?

The Lords of Hack

Welcome Hacklords! At Dave's suggestion, I have created a blog just for the purpose of posting and sharing tidbits of random information for access as a bulletin board so that all may read and respond. If you wish to post, I'll make you a co-author and you may make any sort of game-related post you wish.
