I’ve had many people ask me the same question: “Why do you play Dungeons and Dragons? Why do you play so many video games?” Well, the answer is very simple actually. And I feel like it’s the same for many of you out there. So here goes:
He came form a long line of nobles. Trained to fight by the followers of Beau Babblebrook. A master of the basket-hilted claymore and dirk. A true Ottacar, dashing, suave, ferocious, and untouchable after he puts on his ancestral armor.
Ignatius du’ Ottacar Marquis of Dawnspire, a human fighter of the greatest potential. As he was a young son of the current marquis he was questing to find glory and honor to suit the name of Ottacar. He first met his companions in a prison cell after having survived the collapse of most of a city. He quickly formed a unique friendship with a dragon born warlord named: Vegeta. They shared a unique dynamic that i have yet to find in another campaign or one shot yet. Ill talk about that in the next post, i feel as though it deserves its own special post.
During the progression of the campaign we ended up i the elemental chaos, he was gifted with a set of wyrmscale armor. this boosted his already high AC through the roof. I believe that this gift peeved our dungeon master as he had us fight a glass cannon version of Orcus. When he couldn’t hit my armor class he decided to troll me with a power that dropped me to zero hit points. needless to say i was mad.
He was also willing and did sleep with about every thing under the sun. on his list was a female tiefling, a gelatinous cube, a adamintine dragon, and a skeletal snake thing. he crit on a charisma checks to sleep with them.
He was a legend, a master, and a good friend who happens to be gone for now.
Death Before Dishonor, Ignatius & Bengal78
I recently DM’ed for the first time. It was quite an interesting experience. It was a simple dungeon crawl with a twist. The adventures were captured and had to fight there way out of the bottom of the goblin filled sunken castle. They met crazed half elves, several different types of slimes and even a drow. I almost had to strike a balance between storytelling and combat that you don’t get as a player. The most difficult thing as a DM is weather or not to let the die stand and be honest or to lie and either hit or miss. Ive had both kinds of Dungeon Masters and i will say in my humble opinion that the lying kind of DM who values story in combat more then honest dice rolls. I tried to emulate this when i was playing God, I faked the rolls both ways both to hit and miss. Heedless to say that the adventurers survived and warned the village that the Goblins were just out side there town.
Now i have a Question for you all: what would you like me to post? I was thinking of doing a Character profile, then a Striking the Balance, and a Behind the Iron Curtain.
Im sorry but i got a slight cold and have had a lot of homework, no post from me besides this. not even my loyal fans could stop this cold
Now as i stated in my last post i listen to a number of podcasts that have to do with dungeons and dragons. First I listen to Critical Hit, the Major Spoilers Dungeons and Dragons Campaign. They are now in there fourth or fifth season, They have fought the void, saved the Astral sea, and are…
Jebeddo Tosscobble. Quite the character. Probably one of my first characters ever in Dungeons and Dragons character. He was so feisty and angry and well, let’s be honest, quite an alcoholic. But I played him so well. Three campaigns we spent together. And his anger and bitterness towards nothing both got him in fights, and saved his life on multiple occasions. However, he has finally met his end. So here I write his memoir.
Being as it is Saturday and i really don’t have anything to do right now I’m going to tell you about my first.
You dirty minded sadistic people, i meant my first character. It was a 3.5 campaign and i was very new to the whole Dungeons and Dragons game. I had listened to both the Penny Arcade and Critical Hit podcast and was thoroughly entertained and became very curious. It took me a wile to find a gaming group,and when did the dungeon master was of great help in getting me, a complete noob, started on character creation. Thus Beau Babblebrook was born, A halfling barbarian who stunned and astonished gamers and audiences everywhere. Beau was not the smartest of halflings, he poked a screaming mushroom with a javelin, but his power came from his incredible rolling ability and the fact that his character shouldn’t have made sense but always came out on top. For instance he wore half plate armor yet had a ten to his stealth checks. Ill recount more of Beau’s exploits in later posts, but for now i want to leave you with some advice. Always choose your characters how you want, be it halfling barbarian, goliath rogue, or minotaur artificer. Firstly because they are fun as all get out, secondly they can be incredibly powerful, and thirdly you can screw your Dungeon Master over like no other.
Hey all! Cheetah here! I’m a pretty versatile gamer, open to many suggestions in the video game, tabletop game, and trading card game categories. Dungeons and Dragons and Magic the Gathering being my favorite. Glad to be here!
Simply refer to me as Bengal78, I play many different games, including Dungeons and Dragons. I make the best characters and have a fledgling knowledge of dungeons and dragons as well as gaming in general.
To everyone involved with the blog at the moment:
Obviously we haven’t been posting. Each of us has other stuff going on right now, school, work, friends, clubs, projects and other blogs.
So let’s all acknowledge that, and perhaps when summer roles around we’ll be able to establish steady content. OR if we just want to call it quits we can. I just can’t bring myself to delete the beautiful blog page I made.
That pretty much sums up my feelings at the moment.
