12S 12M: This is starting to look like a bad idea (basically, an RPG ramble…)

Black Friday Weekend, I was at my local game store to pick up something I ordered and was persuaded to shop around a bit. I picked up a game entitled TimeWatch, and with my ordered in copy of the Doctor Who RPG, I set out hoping to not spend more money.

Little did I know this one chance purchase would haunt me for a month, and cast a grim shade on my plans for the new year. Continue reading “12S 12M: This is starting to look like a bad idea (basically, an RPG ramble…)”

5e Megadungeon Project: Briefing Document (Version 2: Brief Harder)

With bits and pieces I’ve gleaned from our session, and a bit more research into the concept, this is the next version of the Megadungeon Briefing Document. It’s not necessary that you read this to play, but it is very helpful. (A lot of this is Copy/Paste from the last document. Changes and information new to this version are in red.

Mad Matt Watches A Star Trek: ENT S4E15 Affliction (Part 1)

This is my series where I watch a random star trek episode, and write my thoughts as they occur. There are likely spoilers.

Ya know, I’m curious about what the break down in quality when compared with number of words in the title. I’m not sure if my Excel-Fu is strong enough to make that table. I’ll look at it in the future. Continue reading “Mad Matt Watches A Star Trek: ENT S4E15 Affliction (Part 1)”

Mad Matt Watches A Star Trek: DS9 S4E07 Little Green Men

This is my series where I watch a random star trek episode, and write my thoughts as they occur. There are likely spoilers.

Not going to liw, this episode opens with me humming the Smashmouth song “Who’s there.” You know, because of the title. Continue reading “Mad Matt Watches A Star Trek: DS9 S4E07 Little Green Men”

5e Mega Dungeon: First session debrief etc

This part 3 or so of my mega dungeon escapades. Part 1 is here, Part 2 is also here. You don’t really need to read them in order, but it might help you know what I am talking about…

So, after I came up with the idea on Saturday, I ran the first session on Tuesday, which is pretty impressive, I think. A lot of that was designing the tables that, while not 100% complete, are 100% reusable. So if I needed to make a new dungeon, I could. But, ideally, “Megadungeon means never having to say ‘Let’s start from Square 1’Continue reading “5e Mega Dungeon: First session debrief etc”

5e Megadungeon Project: Briefing Document

So, in continuation of my last D&D post, there are some information and tweaks that need to be addressed real quick, so people can know what to make for characters and such. This is that for the first test run of the concept. If I make a new one of these, I’ll post in big red letters with a link. But for now, use this.

New Project: 5e Procedural Megadungeon

This is a bad idea.

Let’s start with that. Get that right out of the way, intercept the comments, and set everyone’s expectations where they should be. Actually, let’s emphasize.

THIS IS A BAD IDEA!!

Right now, we can….

Hold on, I don’t like the defeatist tone there. Let’s try once more.

THIS IS (probably) A BAD IDEA!!

Nailed it. Continue reading “New Project: 5e Procedural Megadungeon”

Mad Matt Watches A Star Trek: DS9 S2E25 The Tribunal

This is my series where I watch a random star trek episode, and write my thoughts as they occur. There are likely spoilers.

This is episode has a tropey start. Busy engineer/manager guy is going on vacation, keeps stressing out over leaving everything to not-hims. this vacation is probably his wife’s idea and since he’s such a dedicated worker bee, he’ll go along in name but not in spirit.
