    Pet peeve, barbarians that never use reckless attack. Episode 119 has a fight where it’s the perfect time for yasha to use reckless attack without penalty and she doesn’t do it

    Maybe. But weirdly I’m at odds with just jumping in with strangers. At least guys here I had prior knowledge of. I browse LFG everyday, but too big of a pussy to pull the trigger

    I texted Wu this, but last night I couldn’t sleep and my mind was making up bardic inspiration song based off soccer chants. Yours would have been: “He’s a grand ol’ god to fight for, he’s a grand ol’ god to support. And if ya are a criminal, it’s enough to make my sword to brrrrrr”

    I figured giving you the Everton song would be most cruel and funny

    If you guys were willing to wait a couple of weeks for me to put things together and were patient with me never having been a DM before, I would be willing to try if there are enough to go.

    You'll need to provide more character info than that. And no hexblades.

    I'm tapped out with the one campaign I'm already running. They'll return from the feywild next session and learn they've been gone for 13 years and the BBEG succeeded while they were gone

    Finley Nettlebee the Fourth, Heir to Shawhill, Destroyer of Life, Devourer of Tarts and Souls, son of Finely Nettlebee the Third, Lord of Shawhill, Devourer of Tarts, just, was born a blind hobbit. His mother made a deal with Demogorgan to restore his sight in exchange for the Tome of Tarts, a family heirloom detailing the recipes of over twelve hundred of the world's finest tarts, both sweet AND savory. Finley has spent his adolescence filled with guilt for the cost of his sight.

    He was recently approached by Belaphoss, a rival to Demogorgan, who agreed to give him otherworldly powers that would enable him to return the Tome of Tarts to Shawhill in exchange for dispatching Demogorgan from the Abyss.

    He is gregarious to a fault. When convenient (and often when not convenient), he will introduce himself by his full name, including his self-given titles. He is actually an accomplished swordsman, having taken up the artform in preparation for his quest to retrieve the heirloom. A hobbit form of Inigo Montoya.

    Yeah, it's fine as a sanity check, but I've had multiple encounters KFC said were deadly turn out to be total snoozers

    well 2 things. 1) add HP to your monster if it’s too easy, 2) if you have a big boss and minions, just throw in more minions as the fight goes on if it’s too easy. The players don’t know what you had planned

    Marisha’s opening to that, while a little long, may have been the best bit ever done on CR. And Tal’s character getting his ass handed to him was equally fun.

    So I’ve been really been into Ravnica lore for MTG. I actually have the DnD module for Ravnica. Would anyone of y’all be interested in running a campaign based in Ravnica after War of the Spark?
