Session Report 10/18/2016: The Debut Of The Invincible Chicken Class

Tonight another truck went missing in the wilds of Dinotastic park. Somehow the Halfling miraculously made it back to camp with a hologram in tow. Most of Free Trader’s Rest having never seen a hologram were intrigued by this woman. The halfling explained to Joe Fang that the truck had been attacked by some dinosaurs…

Session Report 10/11/2016: An Almost TPK

After my first TPK the players rolled up new characters. I have stressed to them many times that they can get hirelings and they have chosen so far not to. We had an elf, a halfling and a Petrol Head (from CUaBM issue 6). The characters started out as being hang arounds for the Red…

SPOILERS FOR CRAWLING UNDER A BROKEN MOON ISSUE 14&15 BELOW! Tonight my players managed to get themselves off the Purple Planet by rescuing the navigator Tio Lizix (who is now played by George, and is playing him quite well as his internal monologue being external). The players made their way to a planet where George…

Understanding THAC0

Thanks to this nifty chart at Random Wizard Blog in combination with the AD&D Book of Lairs I finally have a good grasp of THAC0. People have tried to explain it to me before and I just never understood. I think it was because I didn’t realize you needed 2 different charts. This should make…
