like i knew it would probably be a good distraction considering current events.
but. OH. MY. GOD.
i laughed so hard during parts of it, the entire thing was a riot. made a new friend too.
i am officially hooked. love this game.
Our game last night, the first real dungeon crawl I've done in over a decade, was a blast.
Our dwarf paladin is afraid of the dark, our kobold sorcerer is afraid of heights, and our half-elf rogue hates our adopted NPC and keeps trying to hurt him. So naturally, there were dark things (darkmantles), collapsing floors, traps, and lots of carrion crawlers. Our fighter managed to hook the NPCs leg with a grappling hook, and almost drag him over the edge of a pit. The scythe trap bounced off the paladin's armor (which gave the rogue and sorcerer a few minutes of hilarious critique - "Who the hell makes such a crappy trap?" "Yeah, they suck. I'd have done..."). Carrion crawler tentacles make a thwapity-thwapity-thwap noise as they flail all over. Good times were had by all.
you can't beat our intrepid group attempting to get to the top of a flight of stairs that have folded in and can no longer be used n9ormally:
"so, how do we get up there?"
our goliath named sheva decides to use strength to throw our shardmind, bolo, up to the top.
its a REALLY high roll, so the DM says that the shardminds crystalline body got stuck to the wall. 50 feet in the air of course.
ok, time to get him down.
im a rogue with high acrobatics, skill, so i roll for a wall run. i roll a one. i fall on my butt.
another member of the party attempts to be thrown up there be sheva. sheva rolls a one, so of course that party member just got thrown at the bottom of the wall.
at this point half our party is on the ground dazed, one member is stuck to the wall, and the other is standing there confused. enter fifth party member, our sorcerer, who does an insight check:
"guys, you know you each have 100 feet of rope in your adventurer kit right?"
also our sorcer had a falcon and also telkinetic ability, (up to five pounds) and was so able to throw the switch at the top of the stairs to let our party pass.
edit: yes, we got bolo down. we threw up a rope and sheva pulled on it.
