Volume 7: Captive of Gor

This book focused on a specific minor character for most of the story, compared to the others with Tarl as the main. The person it focused on was a spoiled, lying, cheating, brat of a girl and I don't think I felt bad for her once during the book. The first part was hard to get into (as usual), it plodded along as the story was set up. It took me until around 100 pages in before I was able to read more then a few pages at a time and when it finally grabbed my curiosity to keep going.

HackMoor 2018/06/07 Fighting the Pit Fiend - Part II

Games are on Thursday nights sometime after 6:30PM at World's Best Comics, 9714 Warwick Blvd Newport News, Virginia 23601.

To satisfy the cravings for Pepperoni that my group lacked due to the reservations of one member who refuses it, I got two pizzas, one large sausage, one large pepperoni.

Map of new explorations attached in gif format but not this battle as that layout is redundant from last week. I'm only attaching new Level 12. Less the Kenzerco forum as my permissions img code is off.

The party was still faced with the trapped passageway. Was it a one time trap? Was it reset only to strike again?

Grok found out the hard way.

[2018-05-23] HackMaster 4e Part 2: Player Character Ability Scores

Chapter 1
Player Character Ability Scores

Creating a character in HM4e can be an adventure unto itself. Probably not nearly as smooth or fun as Traveller, but an intriguing experience.

A couple negatives off the bat. Making a character in HM4e is an investment in something that may be lost quickly. Be prepared. It’s also convoluted as written and needed errata and clarification.

On a good note, Appendix I has a step by step procedure that is most helpful.

[Anime Review] Sword Art Online II

SAO II

The first four episodes are unnecessary garbage.

Then it does turn into an interesting albeit dogged story. It feels more like the second half of SAO I. They took much of what didn’t work in the first series and ran with it, leaving behind the best parts.

Still, after you roll your eyes through four useless episodes it picks up for nine. This story could have been told in three or less so it can be frustrating however it’s also touching.

[2018-05-17] HackMaster 4e Part 1: Intro to the Player's Guide

Opening the book and seeing the date 2001 gives me an odd feeling of how that shouldn’t seem so long ago and yet the battle of HackMaster does seem well in the past. It’s a game that ran its course and veered off in a completely different direction than where it initially travelled. It ended. Debate away.

The inside cover has ads for the GMG, HoB (over 1600 creatures), Quest for the Unknown and Little Keep on the Borderlands.

Games are on Thursday nights sometime after 6:30PM at World's Best Comics, 9714 Warwick Blvd Newport News, Virginia 23601.

We had an extra large sausage and mushroom pizza. Once was not enough and some of the Players ordered pepperoni on their own, because we don't normally order it due to one player's personal phobia.

Map attached. Includes prior sessions on this level.
