Re: First Time Home Campaign Creation

This sounds really good - you have put lots of thought into the background of the campaign.

Just be ready for your PCs to take unexpected turns - you can make plans, but you can never really predict where your game will go!

Best of luck! Post updates if you have the chance.l

be well,

Brendan

Re: Legacy of the Savage Kings - Player's POV

Part 6 – Endgame, or Real Tomb Raiders Have Braids We come back to searching the huge debris filled room. There are several side chambers with sarcophagi along the walls, presumably belonging to the seven barbarian kings that fell under the sway of the ancient demon. A few of them have already been...

Re: Legacy of the Savage Kings - Player's POV

Part 5 – Drums in the Deep, or Snake Bite Loved And that’s when the water thing attacked us. The creature popped right out of the pool with the statue and surprised the heck out of us. We got lucky and made fairly short work of it. Never trust water in a dungeon! We start exploring some of the side...

Part 4: Close Calls Are Our Business And Business Is Good We spend another night in the dragon’s lair, wanting to be fully healed and rimmed with spells when we approach the cliff face.

Part 3 – The Best Laid Plans . . . The next wave into the warehouse turns out to be a small group of kobolds. We are so happy its just another kobold patrol that we nearly hug them with gratitude, rather than pound them into guacamole. Nearly. We take a breath and look around, ready for the next wa...

Re: Legacy of the Savage Kings - Player's POV

Glad you liked it JediOre. It was a ton of fun reliving last weeks game. We are using the 3.5 rules with a fair bit of tweaking, and the gestalt character option from Unearthed Arcana. We role played the barbarian tribe encounter. It was fun - the GM had it where the whole village laughed when we tr...

Re: shrek?

How would you fine people use shrek from the movies in xcrawl? Interesting. Okay try this on: an ogre gets captured and brought into the games.

Re: Running Div IV

That sounds good - I like the idea of the Apprentice DJ:

Re: Starting equipment in the crawl vs. "In real life"

Hey there! 27K GP is probably a fair amount for your characters in the Phoenix Crawl. You might consider the sponsorship packages that are listed in the Appendix (p 79). If you are going to use one of the sponsorship packages consider giving them less starting gold (say 18K) to make up for it. The s...

Hey FMOI, Good question! Do you use the Xcrawl: SellOut! supplement? If you do check out the Expanded Fame rules. Once a Crawler earns 101+ points of fame, he can start turning in his normal (temporary) Fame Points for Permanent Fame Points. Permanent Fame Points represent the enduring sort of fame ...
