Games are on Monday night sometime after 5:30PM at World's Best Comics, 9714 Warwick Blvd Newport News, Virginia 23601.

I don't remember what kind of pizza it was, but it was good because I didn't buy it. A Temporal Honor point to the buyer per the rules, also beer was brought and another pizza I didn't buy. I guess my Players are really into Honor Points.

Preamble: Various players were eligible to advance in levels. Two of which qualified for immediate advancement without going to school, which they opted for. This led to questions which I'll poll separately.

Anime Review: Your Lie in April Ep.1 (Spring is a lie in Canada)

This show caught my eye when I was looking for something short to watch to pass the time between going out.

Immediately I was struck with the vivid cheerfulness of the colours, everything is bright and pastel, like a monitor with the brightness cranked up a bit too high.

The story seems very typical so far...

Knitting Pattern: The Hateful Weight! Daisy's Scarf.

This the third and final part of my Hateful Eight series.

This time we're looking at Daisy Domergue's lovely bumpy orangey scarf.

I wasn't able to get a good look at the ends so I'm unsure if it has fringes. It's a nice textured fabric and I decided to go with a Double Moss Stitch to get that look.

BeerWar Alc./Vol. 2: Old Milwaukee vs Tap Water

The tap water is clear while OM is a healthy urine colour.

The tap water from this well smelled faintly ashy and OM had that generic mainstream beer smell. It's faint though. Some will argue yeast while others barley. There is no significant fruit, hops, or malt in the aroma. Just generic beer.

This time we had an extra-large sausage pizza.

PART 1.

The bugs having been dealt with, our party opted to continue up the high road toward Nulb and its environs. Elefus having been retrieved from Tharp opted to continue with the party.

This time we had an extra-large meat-lover's with Pepperoni removed substituted with Canadian Bacon.

For BlackMoor fans, I relocated this adventure from Greyhawk to the BlackMoor map near the the crossroads between the Regent of the Mines, The Black Hills, and Fairfield Abbey. Consider Tharp and Nulb to be unmarked towns.

BeerWar Alc./Vol. 1: Export vs Old Style

War of the Beers Alcohol per Volume 1

    Molson Export Ale vs Molson Old Style Pilsner

    Blah blah blah from the guy at The Beer Store about how OS Pilsner is the exact same as Ex as he goes on about brewing processes that belies education on the topic but his zeal made me give it a whirl and start the first of my beer wars. Beer battles? Beer clashes?

    These are both in 500ml cans stored for just a day at basement temperature which in this case was probably about 58 degrees F or so.

C4A: Well well well...

We get our first glimpse at another Well-Keepress this chapter.

I enjoyed their interchanges, especially the one in the arena.

There was a tiny hint of 'not what it seems' about Arlet. I'm not quite sure where it's leading though. I liked Estri's misgivings about relying on technology too much, it does tend to fail when you need it most.

Lowered Ability Scores

1st Ed. D&D question (or HackMaster v4.)

I was about to ask what happens when a character's ability scores fall below the minimum for a class. Do they lose the class?

i.e. If a Magic User becomes too stupid to be a Magic User (e.g. Int falls below 9), do they cease to be a Magic User? If the Wisdom falls below 9 do they cease to be a Cleric.

I couldn't actually find a rule outside of initial character creation minumums.

Then my attention was drawn to the ability table for Wisdom in HackMaster and they listed chance of spell failure for scores below 9.

Tracy's HackMoor Campaign 2016/03/14

Games are on Monday night sometime after 5:30PM at World's Best Comics, 9714 Warwick Blvd Newport News, Virginia 23601.

We skipped another week due to personal issues. There shall be no placeholder report for 7 March.

This time we had a combo-pizza and found out to my dismay I have another dietary requirement from one of my Players for no green peppers. In addition to our other Player requirements of: 1) No pepperoni, 2) no veggies, 3) no anchovies. Although requirements 1) and 2) were waived because certain Player's with those requirements were not present at the time.
