Or “How I Learned to Stop Playing 4e and Love Pathfinder”

So it seems I am not along on my trek across the desert to the promised land of “plagues, floods, and pillars of mother@##$%ing salt“.  By this, I mean my departure from the 4e ship and boarding the good ship Pathfinder.  Come with me, if you will, on a trip down memory lane….

Recently, I’ve found my creative side slowly waking back up since it started to hibernate after I lost my job in December.  Looking back, I had about 1-2 posts after that and then, blogging, like a number of things when that unemployment depression sets in, just sort of fell to the wayside despite having more than enough time to write.  But, with the advent of a new Pathfinder campaign starting up and the possible rebirth of my old 4e campaign (converted to Pathfinder – more on that later), I’ve decided to try my hand once more and see if I can’t keep the ball rolling here.

But, to start things off slow and to show I do still pay heed to the comings and goings of the blogsphere, I thought I’d chime in on a subject that has recently been making its way throughout gaming blogs: “Things Role Playing Bloggers Tend Not To Write About” as initially mentioned by Noisms over at Monsters and Manuals.

This was just posted by the folks at Troll In The Corner but I also wanted to share it here In case no one has a link to their blog (Which now you do.  so go read their stuff.  It’s a great blog).  I just hope they follow through with releasing them as full sets and not randomized booster boxes.  Many around my table always hoped WotC would realize the possibilities of miniature sets, but, never really expected much to come from it.

Anywho, the Press Release posted by Troll In The Corner after the cut.

So, I’ve finally made a concentrated effort to attend regular sessions at one of my FLGSs for the weekly D&D Encounters adventures.  I tried it back in January but, since becoming a bit more on the lazy side thanks to unemployment, I’d failed to make a return trip until recently.  I believe what prompted this was my experience with 4e Essentials and my sudden love of the system (At least compared to what I refer to as 4e Core.  I don’t hate 4e Core, I just like Essentials a smidge more).

Anywho, I’ve been able to start into encounters at the start of a brand new season which kicks off with The Dark Legacy of Evard, a so-far interesting Shadowfell tale.  Given the nature of the Encounters sessions, our first session had a different group of adventurers than my second.  What I recall of  our merry band included a Dwarven Cleric, a half-orc Paladin(?), a couple of spellcasters of some kind, and myself, a non-copyright infringing Drow Ranger (Hunter).  The second consisted of a Human Cleric, a Drow Hexblade, a Human Binder, an Elven Mage, myself, and a Human Paladin.

So, here is a brief summary of those sessions as told by Urdithane, Drow Hunter extraordinaire.

So, here I sit, in the parking lot of Dominos, my head still floating about after the events of today. Or, should I say ‘Encounter’ today. I’d finally been able to make it to a session of Dungeons and Dragons: Encounter at Pegasus Games, one of several FLGSs in Madison, and it was, well, painfully fun.

So, there I sat in anticipation, freshly made fighter in hand, my D&D Essentials virginity waiting to be taken. Promptly, the GM and players arrived; a friendly lot that I would enjoy playing another session with. The map for tonight’s encounter was set up, the previous session details reviewed (Having not been a part of that, it was nice to see what transpired beforehand), and we were underway.

Now, this is where the pain begins. Continue Reading »

[DW: AiT&S] Xivitan Andrix

Scoundrel, Rogue, Cad, Charmer, Swindler, Thief.

These are the words typically used to describe Xivitan Andrix, a Grigacian and former Time Agent turned criminal.  How he came to this life after being a respectable member of the Time Agency is still a whirlwind of jumbled thoughts and faded memories.  But Xiv would not have it any other way. 

“Give me the clothes on my back, a handful of credits from the pockets of that gent over there and a ship to steal away on, and life is alright by me.”

[DW: AiT&S] Lt. Lucy Powell

The daughter of Corporal Beverly Powell (UNIT Historian from The Stalker of Norfolk webcomic), Lucy grew up hearing stories about The Doctor from her mother and friends.  Hearing the story of how her mother actually travelled back in time and met Robert Dudley fascinated her at a young age.  That adventure and other stories of this strange and amazing man fill her young mind like fairy tales of old.
