    Yeah, that hadn't actually occurred to me until I read this. Thanks a lot. I knew we should have gone back to Kai Kin and dropped three or four earthquakes on the temple complex. We didn't, though, because aside from neutral-and-pragmatic Morningstar we want to be the heroes. Becoming city-leveling bullies isn't really our thing.

    LightPhoenix, for what it's worth, in the round where both Aravis and Greywolf died I thought we might have a TPK on our hands. Plenty challenged!

    City-Leveling Bullies sounds a lot meaner than Spire Guard, that's for sure.

    We played tonight. Sagiro is a giant rat bastard, roles are reversed, Dranko's normal combat style has definitely been torn out of a rut, it is in fact possible to hate Meledien even more than I previously did, the term "meat-shield" can sometimes become quite terrifyingly literal, never throw out your old magic items, and - possibly for the first time in years - Dranko is looking at death. Justifiably so.

    Rat. Bastard.

    Has he grown into a dire rat bastard?

    Wouldn't it technically be 'advanced' into a dire rat bastard? Though I don't recall seeing a DM advancement table in the DMG

    No clue. I tried to explain my lack of cohesion with "geeking out" and my phone changed the word. I can neither preview nor edit my posts, either; my browser crashes and I lose the message. So I corrected myself in a later post.

    Games like Sepulchrave II's are interesting as a diversion, but unless everyone is on the ball, or some folks get plot armor, it quickly becomes a no-fun endeavor. I'm going to attack an advanced Vecna (I have 48 hitdice, and redundant caster levels) and while there's an in-game reason for it, I'm kinda hoping my character will die. It's surreal.

    I am, as ever, interested in seeing how the story hour here pans out. Abernathy's company are quite a fine crew, and engaging- this is the only SH I've read where I care about the story several times more than the metagame. I don't care what Dranko's exact HP total is; I care that he's still alive. That's rare to find online.

    Didn't you hear? Dranko is dead!

    Son of a monkey! Sagiro was a designer on Thief, so I think that's "my" Dranko! I had no idea.

    And E.N. Publishing killed Emperor Drakus Coaltongue in the prologue of War of the Burning Sky. Man can't catch a break.
