The Campaign: Crypt

March 1, 2019 by Tim

Well that was fun. See you in another year, “The Campaign.”

No no, I’m kidding.

…At least I hope I’m kidding. I stretch myself too thin. Oh well! Next up on the horizon… perhaps Starcaster!

You know… every time I’ve taken 50 suits of horrifyingly used leather armor to the shops in an RPG… I… gawds. No wonder the town guard is always watching you like a hawk. We’re all clearly either graverobbers or looting battlefields… or serial killers. I mean, I totally understand why we’re getting paid for the armor. Even if the shopkeep can’t really use them, you’re showing up with armor that didn’t save its last owner, and asking for coin. But who would be buying them? Next year’s bandits? You’d think they’d steal them. Are they getting cut up for bags?… Read more »

After Two Worlds and Gothic I used to quick save before trying to enter a house or take something when looking around a house…I slaughtered a whole city once in TW coz the guards saw me lockpicking that door…was much fun at first, but then I was sad that the dead merchands strangely didn’t have any wares anymore :’D

Very cool story end, Tim! Looking forward to the next bit of the Campagin!

Oh god. someone else who remembers that gothic was a thing. SQUEEE.

is playing through gothic 2 again for the first time in forever. God forgot how fun and annoying it can be.

Still get satisfaction about killing that twit in the jail. Shoot him with an arrow, and watch the guards try to murder him for some reason. YAY AI 😀

Man I love the first two Gothics. I would love for them to do another one in that vein, or someone to make a game similar in feel.

Have you tried Elex? It’s from the same developer has a bit SciFi vibe but can be played as melee or mage.

Hey Tim.
Do you intent to finish the storyline between Ethan and Emily before we get another issue of Analog and D-Pad, or have you something else cooked up?
And don’t overwork yourself on these three major stories, you have going on. Everything in due time 🙂

Reminds me of an old WEG Star Wars campaign I ran. Guys looted the bodies despite my objections, showed up with tons of stormtrooper armor and weapons to sell on Coreilla…

It didn’t end well, and a few hundred dead Stormtroopers later they were fleeing the planet as Darth Vader showed up in his star destroyer. This was set before ANH back when there were only three movies… Man I just made myself feel old.

Anyone here even remember West End Games?

Yep. Death by D6 before Shadowrun was a thing. 🙂

When the DM gives a inch the players always find some crazy way to take a mile, and then some.

Umm… That’s “interplanetary”… But then, aren’t all meteors “interplanetary”? It seems a bit redundant. And pedantic. 😉

Great. Now you’ve given me a repeating image of Hervé Villechaize running to to the top of the bell tower, ringing the bell and pointing to the sky: “De Plane! De Plane!”

Back in the late 70s at a Major Midwestern University there was a large D&D group that met every Saturday night. The group had been going on for quite some time, so there were some ridiculously powerful characters. Their actions kept getting more and more exotic until the DM finally had enough. The party walked into a village and discovered that there was a holy artifact in the town square. The object was metallic and egg shaped with an odd looking box structure on the bottom. They began to investigate the object. At villages many miles away, the residents heard… Read more »

But then how could we report them to you? They don’t trouble me too much.
BTW, just got one from Amazon groceries. Not sure how to supply the link like that.

I just can’t believe her bow missed every nostril! She needs to aim a little higher so her bow can shine like it should.

I was kind of hoping for the meteor and next time we see “The Campaign” we’re just on a new line of storytelling completely.

Oh yea I remember WEG. I used to have their “Paranoia” RPG. As well as their version of X wing vs Tie Fighter called Star Warriors. It was always fun to run a game of Star Warriors with some friends and recreate some of the setups from LucasArts X Wing or Tie fighter.

I wonder about one think – how come the GM also has a Player Character, doesn’t he know the full story in advance? (unless there’s some details about how he doesn’t, and I forgot it?)

Good point, sorry, I might have phrased it better – the GM knows things like who the antagonists of the story are, what are their goals and motivations, and so on. I suppose in your typical D&D-ish adventure of “explore the dungeon, slay the princess and save the treasure” it’s less important (other than knowing the layout, what monsters and traps are there, etc.), but I think it would be much more tricky in say, scheming and plotting politcal game like Vampire: the Masquerade. (BTW, does the website have an option of creating a permanent account for comments, or allowing… Read more »

Nevermind about the account, made a better perception roll and figured that one out. 😉

Yeah, that makes sense.

Is that why Player 3 plays a cleric, who seems to be a support role in the setting they use?

That is the most likely reason. Also, the DM can never be certain about how things will go that depend on the dice either. It all comes down to their ability to resist metagaming. I like to think I’m pretty good at it, but I’ve also not been forced to play a DMpc. Our current DM is unfortunate because our party has a tendancy to pick up strays. As soon as he finds an excuse to have them leave the party, we inevitably find another one that we just pick up. Two sessions ago we got a second DMPC in… Read more »
