Clovis has, since our last engagement, delved deep into goblin caves where he has repeatedly engaged the enemy in foolish and foolhardy situations, and come out on top. Hence, I may need to change his moniker again from The Gremlin to the Invincible, but its worth it given the situations he’s been in.
Last year, I took a listen to the best albums of 2016, as nominated by a bunch of people on the internet. Not one place in particular, but just across the internet. This year, I am doing the same, its really the only way I get new metal into my blood, aside from random Youtube recommendations. so, what do we have?
This is the Second of a series directed at new players, but hopefully with some nuggets for veterans and journeymen alike. This is a post about my opinions on Cryx from the vantage point three editions and dating back to 2004. Today I’ll deliver into how our Warcasters breakdown, and what to expect from them
This week, I’ll not be posting a Thursday article, I’m gonna push it off until Friday: Iron Lich Asphyxious. This should also be the last week without a Tuesday article which will be a NOVA wrap up, then back into From the Ground up!
See everyone then!
I’ve been talking lately, about the history of a setting, and how it plays a strong role in how an adventure feels real and stays strongly grounded, allowing the fantastic elements to play a central role. Here, we’ll end our short section on the past with a look at how physical elements play within the setting.
This weeks Topic covers the nature of magic as used by the spellcasting classes and beings in the world. We’ve set the stage, now, for a world properly structured, infused with a number of types of magic, and populated with all sorts of creatures and plants. Today, we move forward with examining the way that people would interact with magic.
Taking a few days off for the holidays, I’ll be back in the new year!
One of the things that really sets apart a fantastic world from the mundane one we live is the presence of monstrous, fantastic creatures. In many mythologies, these creatures are looked at without much fanfare with each creature just existing as part of the natural realm. I’m not convinced that that would be the case here, and I’m going to take a look at a couple of things that I’m fairly sure would change both dramatically and subtly, given the presence of these deadly creatures.
I’ve not been playing a lot of games lately, but I’ve made some progress into my goals. One of the things I wanted to do was to get enough games in with a caster to get their feel before moving onward. I’ve been playing the game and playing cryx long enough to be able to sort out, with a modicum of reliability, how a caster feels and whether or not it plays right, in about 5 games. It doesn’t always give me a taste for the meta and how I utilize it in a tournament, which is a flaw, but I don’t get to enough tournaments to really make it my priority. I do worry about tournament boogeymen, but only in the dojo.
This’ll be my first written battle report with Goreshade 2, and its with the last iteration in his final game before Terminus.
Like the last two years before it, NOVA comes to my neck of the woods with great fanfare. The largest convention I am part of running, the Press Gang has put a swath of events that I am excited to run. With players from all over the world coming in to play at their massive GT, it is great to have players from all over the US come and play in the WM and Hordes events that are put on.
