Another blog. I hear you think; OH MY WORD?! So Soon?! LIES! LIES I TELLS YA!
But no, it is a blog. not a lie(although there may or may not be a lie hidden in this here text somewhere.
So, LARP. (Always a nice subject to start of with)
I have recently decided to cut down on LARP a bit, I lost a bit of my enthusiasm for it.
That combined with a few other things lead to me not going to the coming KoD. Of course, seeing the universe loves me the way it does, it turned out (and pretty much right after the decision being made) that this may be the last KoD.
After a lot of thought after that(and rechecking a few things) I still won’t go, albeit more of the other things rather then wanting to. As for spoilers; I will reveal a thing or two in my next blog(seeing the event still has to take place, and saying a few of those things will be spoiling some of the fun of my readers who still go there).
As for D&D(or rather Tabletop RPG as I should call them); A few new developments.
First off is that the story of Harak and his
minions companions is taking off, with us suddenly having to arrange things we haven’t had the need before. Which is really a nice change, and a challenge(for a slightly Excel nerd as I am developing into(thanks all those lists I make at work)).
This resulted in a nice semi-automated book-gobbler. A bit of background on this: In the world we play there are libraries, those have books(duh) which are autogenerated by the DM which gives us a few things to learn asides our level progression. He(and we) found that it was really neat. The only problem with the lists is that they are neatly delivered as a text block, where we like a neat spreadsheet with the data(and some of it at that) nicely sorted and filterable.
That is where the book-gobbler comes in, it converts the text blocks into excel rows with the information we want. If anyone is interested I could do a small explanation on how it works and such.
Beside Harak in D&D 4th Edition I am soon starting with 2 other characters:
Druss, an Aasimar Cleric in the Pathfinder setting.
Goric I Goronthal, (he’s back!) a Dwarven Wizard in the D&D 5th Edition.
Druss(I forgot his lastname) will be a new challenge for me as I have never played a cleric(I am disregarding that one stint, that character is dead to me) and never played Pathfinder(although I do have some experience in D&D 3.5). So I am nervously excited for this one. It will also be a mostly unknown party for me(well, I know the folks, but I have never played Tabletop RPGs with them) save for 1. We will be twin brothers that set out into the world for reason X, so here goes!
Goric is back after being stalled in a new form.
This time he will be a more Urban Dwarf(DM approved subvariant of dwarf, which sacrifices some wisdom for some intelligence(and slightly breaks with tradition)) which gets a +1 to Intelligence and Wisdom instead of a +2 to Wisdom.
The world this time will be the World Capital City of Nexus, a city of the size that baffles the mind, pretty much a country of it’s own. With all it’s associated problems. And that is pretty much all I know of that, so far(the DM is still writing)
And now, music!
I picked some nice music(if I say so myself) for you all to listen to:
Dance the Night Away – The Mavericks
Goldeneye – Tina Turner
Firestarter – Torre Florim
The Nexus – Amaranthe
