Here’s your chance to help decide what game I play. I’ll be streaming alone on Monday instead of with SnooopyChick, so I won’t be playing Saints Row 4. I’ve put a poll on Twitter with a couple options in it. Vote on one of them or suggest something else as a reply!
So, one of the things that I’ve always searched for with my Dungeons and Dragons adventures is a compendium of new monsters. My players all know the basics: kobolds, beholders, dragons, and even the Tarrasque. I want them to face things without the meta knowledge of how many hit points this thing in front of them will have, or what abilities it can use, or even what its weaknesses and resistances are. I’ve used Fifth Edition Foes from Necromancer Games, Tome of Beasts from Kobold Press, and had much luck with some variety from Volo’s Guide to Monsters from Wizards of the Coast.
I always enjoy new first party works from Wizards due to the high production value and the awesome quality that goes into the works. (Don’t get me wrong, the third party sourcebooks are still great, they just feel like they lack something usually.) So it goes without saying that I’ve been looking forward to Mordekainen’s Tome of Foes since it was announced. I”m not in possession of an advance copy or any knowledge more than the rest of you, but I’d love to hear what rumors and information is out there and your opinions on it.
We do know that the book will be “256 pages.” I’m going to assume that means including the legal stuff, the introductions, and the index at the end. Let’s roughly think that there will be about 230 pages of content. If it’s really all just new foes and variants of them, and we can assume an average of two pages per enemy, we can expect more than 100 new enemies to throw at our players. This would be nice, if I do say so myself.
Expect a review when the book is officially released on May 29th! I’ll take a few minutes on my #SaturdayStream that week to discuss the content and give you my totally semi-professional opinion. I look forward to everyone being there!
Hello and welcome back everyone!
Chikadee and I will be playing a new game tonight for the Saturday Stream. It’s called Tales of Escape [Steam] and it simulates an escape room experience. Neither of us have VR, but the game states that it works on a traditional setup as well. We’re planning to go live around 4:30pm EST and plan to play Tales of Escape for a couple of hours at least. After that, I have a couple other games in mind to try, and we’ll see what kind of time we have for them.
But here’s what I’m going to do that’s new tonight: I’m going to let you, the viewers, decide how long I stream. For every $25 of donations received while we stream, I’ll add 30 minutes to the amount of time I stream tonight. For sanity’s sake, I’ll cap it at six hours of extra time that I stream. Also note that 50% of all donations received will be going to charity. Tonight’s chosen charity is Doctors Without Borders. What this means is that, with some donations, we can give up to $150 to Doctors Without Borders tonight!
The page for making donations is here. I’ll check donations when we begin streaming and any donations made between now and the end of the stream will count toward extending the length of the stream.
I hope I’ll see all of you tonight! Until then, keep on gaming!
Phracia’s world is custom designed and is being created around the characters as they travel through the world and experience everything there is to see.
As more information becomes available about the world (read: written), it will be added here, but for the most up-to-date information, be sure to follow the ongoing adventure as its written here on 6fpsNetwork.com.
