Another great week of D&D Encounters at Mercenary Market in Costa Mesa.
Richard had this creepy skull candle thing which he was using as a dice cup–putting the awesome back in D&D
Thor as the Wood-elf Ranger, White Castle
Scott as the Human Wizard, Hamburger
Richard as the Drow Ranger, Unagi
Jack as the Dwarf Fighter, Bill’s Famous Avocado Burger
David as the Teifling Rouge, Umami
Allen as the Halfling Fighter/Barbarian, Little Caesar.
Richard had pained his own mini & done a great job on the basing.
Scott was using this for his Wizard, which was not that great.
Thor may have built his character around his mini–something that I know something about.
Richard was on fire most of the session.
Thor and Scott are still min maxing rock stars.
Brian applauding my awesome Ninja moves.
DM Curtis is having fun & Allen is clearly in the zone.
I am using these white dice this season, which may not be the right choice for a ninja–I may need to do some shopping.
I do have this fantastic new pencil.
First encounter we fought Gricks! Good lord a classic. One of them permanently blinded Brian’s Monk.
My ninja did not do very well on his stealth to get into the Orc Camp–luckily Little Caesar was there to clean up after me.
White Castle locked into the thick of it with the Orcs.
Allen with a much needed late session Crit.
I played Evan the Canadian–his black deck has tricks, but could not over come the Simic.
There were several other very close matches.
Another great week of Pathfinder’s Skull & Shackles adventure path at Scotts!
The full write up is over on epic words.
As always, I had a ton of space at the table for my notebook
David has a collection of hard to read mostly random dice as well.
The maps for this Adventure Path are amazing.
David is wearing his Captain hat, which spent a lot of time on the floor this session!
Chase was having a very good time.
Scott was on fire for this session–really a total blast!
There was mostly role play until the big final show down with the Zombie Pirate Boat
Which was a huge epic battle
During which just about everyone was completely awesome!
There was a lot of team work & strategy going on.
And several great charges & retreats
Without the healing we would have lost very quickly, I think.
The Skull & Shackle mini’s are fantastic! This out of focus photo does not begin to do this figure justice.
Here is a better image from the web
I was able to get Jet, my octopus familiar who used to be Taiko into the act this evening.
and then critted the scar table so I lost my leg!
Cody got off to a great start–doing lots of damage & earning a lot of energy cubes. I was in trouble after round three.
And Cody took home the Cup!
