For kids who can’t update good.
So our DnD group was going to start meeting two times a week but it appears that isn’t going to happen anymore, I guess someone agreed more out of excitement than practicality. Oh hwell. We’re still going to have the two different games going, one being the original where I’m a Sorceror and the second being the Strahd campaign where I play a Paladin. We’re going to alternate games every week I think but I’m not 100% sure how it is going to workout, especially since one of our payers is only available every other Friday. I think this week we are going to do Strahd but it is also the time that the biweekly guy is playing and he is originally a part of the non-Strahd campaign. But, doesn’t really matter for me so we’ll see how it goes.
I gotta say the last time we played the Strahd campaign was pretty awesome. We’re going through this house that we know has a Ghost in it and a bunch of undead things underneath it. Everything was spotless until we got into this bedroom on the 3rd floor. The DM mentioned there was a mirror in the room so I walked up to it and said “I look into the mirror”. As I did that I noticed a Specter appear behind me and boom, roll for initiative. Was probably the coolest start of a fight I’ve encountered in my limited playtime. Then it almost one shot me with a crit and now I’ve got the fear of death real good in muh bones.
In PC game land I’ve been fiddling with Assassin’s Creed Black Flag and it has been pretty enjoyable. I also bought Project CARS because for some reason I had this weird desire for a racing career mode game and after googling “best pc racing career mode” it seemed that Project CARS was the winner. That has been pretty fun as I started in 150cc Kart racing and advanced to 250cc. Of course having some success meant I got invited to special races where they use real cars, which I did really bad in lol. Maybe I should just stick to Mario Kart. But no, I’ll figure it out and my thumb will also stop hurting from trying to turn so hard.
I’ve been messing around in GameMaker some more. Trying to make a character creation screen in a sort of watered down D&D like game. One of the things I’ve always wanted to make since I started trying to learn how to make shit is a goblin cave/mine. When I finish the character creator I’d like to have different starting locations for each class and the Fighter, I mean Warrior is going to start as a prisoner in a goblin cave, GOD DAMNIT! I’m gonna fuckin do it. Though maybe it should be the Assassin (Rogue) since he could probably pick his own lock, but maybe an NPC Assassin will be a prisoner with the Fighter. Iunno, I kinda wanted some alone time to learn how to play first before introducing other party members. There I go gettin ahead of myself again. Dreaming this shit up is a lot easier than making it a reality. Though I will say the more I do it the easier it gets.
Anyways that is it muchachos.
