About Lhorgrim
Introduction:
I'm looking to join a game of D&D 5E.
About Me:
I'm married and have one child. I retired as a police officer in July 2015 and finally have the time to game after years of working weekends and third shift.
I've been playing D&D since the Moldvay boxed set and I have played every edition since. I have run some 5E for my 12 year old son and his friends, and I enjoy the system.

    Lhorgrim excellent resolution. Snik "lives" and remember this time in 25 years when the boys start "do you remember the time when...."

    Yeesh, don't scare a guy like that Lhorgrim! Here you refer to this as a Kobayashi Maru Scenario then mention your kids and I'm thinking "oh no, his crew is dead." Then all sorts of terrible stuff enters my head. It's really not that bad. My solution? The kobold comes back as a ghost to thank the adventurers for trying to keep him alive and honoring his death. He then occasionally lends them in a ghostly hand in future adventures.

    So, now that Death House has been released to everyone for free through Dragon+ is it still going to be the launch event adventure? I was kind of under the impression that Death house was going to be a special preview for the WPN game stores. There are additional, as of yet unannounced, benefits and incentives to play Death House in the store. The announcements got a bit mixed up but its coming.

  • 08:53 PM - Coredump quoted Lhorgrim in post Encounters Confusion
    Coredump I'll try to give a little more detail about my experience. Possible spoilers ahead..... My PC had zero equipment except for undergarments. The other three PCs had a length of rope, a shard of crystal or something that could be used as a shiv, and a flawed gemstone between them. We did not go on work details. The details were described to us as busywork like piling rocks in one place and then moving them back. It was described as something we had done during our captivity, but we didn't role play it during the session. Ah.... that was (IMO) a big and important mistake. These 'work details' are the best way for PCs to gather intel and scrounge gear. For example, one of my players was doing scut work in the kitchen and managed to steal a fork. Back in the cave they manages to modify as improvised lock picks. Another player was doing cleaning and looking for 'anything metal'. He found the tip of a crossbow bolt. Two PCs planned a more involved scene where they tri...

    My DM seemed to have the adventure on a tablet. I didn't see the hardback at the table. People might get the same impression from how I run... When I was in Oregon, I had only my cheat sheets (stats and checkboxes for HP & spell slots) on both my tablet and printed when running HOTDQ... but I almost never had the adventure itself out. We're three sessions in to OotA, and my players have seen the module at the table only twice during session... Before, after, but not during. I used the Encounters PDF to check a map... And I redrew the cavern map in a cleaned up form... If you didn't know which I was running, you could easily assume I was entirely homebrewed. You'd be wrong, but you definitely could.

  • 08:27 PM - Steve_MND quoted Lhorgrim in post Encounters Confusion
    Thanks for the reply. I think this is where my original assumptions about Encounters were far from the reality. I was expecting more self contained sessions that could be completed at one sitting. [...] I guess I just wasn't expecting a more long term type of session that might take three or four weeks to get through. Yah, the Wednesdays Encounters stuff are part of a larger storyline, and will typically take about 9-15 weekly 2-hour sessions to finish, depending on your table/players/DM. Definitely sounds like you were expecting Expeditions, which are part of Adventurer's League, but distinct from Encounters. Those are more what you were expecting, it sounds like -- mostly individual, stand-alone modules that run about four hours in length or thereabouts. if Encounters don't tickle your fancy, I'd ask your gamestore if they are running any Expeditions as well. Good luck!
  • 02:28 AM - Steve_MND quoted Lhorgrim in post Encounters Confusion
    I'll try to give a little more detail about my experience. Possible spoilers ahead... Sounds pretty much on track. I won't go into details, but the adventure suggests anywhere from three to four 2-hour sessions to be involved with orchestrating the escape before you do so and successfully make it to the next section. I can certainly understand some of your frustration, tho -- imho, OotA is an amazing hardback adventure, but it is definitely not the sort of thing that makes for a good 'introduction' to either D&D in general or the AL in specific. For some new players, it's a great fit; one new guy at my table -- never played any DnD or even any RPGs before -- had a great time, because he never had to look at his character sheet and all those confusing numbers at all. He just started talking to NPCs, etc., like it was a 'choose your own adventure' style book. However, that's not likely to be the case for most new players, and the entire setting and premise that OotA is based on is so...

    My DM seemed to have the adventure on a tablet. I didn't see the hardback at the table. The session seemed very much a tail chaser to me. I was able to figure out how to overcome the communication issues among the group, but after talking to all of the other occupants of our area we were no closer to any solutions. The descriptions we got made it seem that any attempt to escape would be doomed to failure and possibly fatal. Then, as we were ending the session, an opportunity arose but it didn't seem to be related to any of the party's previous efforts. Maybe all of the role play we did last night will pay off in the next session. I personally think the role-playing should help, of course, it's up to the DM.

    Well, that's it. If Durkon can adopt gaseous form, he wins - Roy can't force him out of the room, and he can't kill him. And do we really think he'll change Durkon's mind? That said... Did Durkula kill all of the attendants/ushers? I do wonder: maybe those attendant priests Durkon killed returned as vampires and they killed all the attendants, ushers, and the priests of the demigods? That seems a very OotS thing to do - have the bad guys undone by their own evil deeds.

    Also, once the other priests discover that Durkula has been on a murder spree, will they be allowed to join the fight?Nope. they have no protections in the agreements. They were basically horderves due to not having a god. Did Durkula kill all of the attendants/ushers?Perhaps if the two he chugged were the only ones inside. Looks like a Wall of Force, or something, in that frame (?)I'd suspect that's the barrier if passed your god's vote is no longer counted. That's why it has the godly golden glow.

    Is there any significance to the fact that they are now out of the nave and up in the gallery? It seems like the last panel indicates they'll be staying in the gallery for awhile unless Vampire Durkon can go gaseous form. Well, Roy just needs to take him out of the room so his vote doesn't count. I'd guess that gallery probably counts as "out of the room" for that purpose.

  • 10:47 PM - Ryujin quoted Lhorgrim in post You can now get a citation for making direct eye contact with a cop
    I want to thank you for this. Some of the worst treatment I ever got as an officer was while directing traffic. People who are ordinarily nice can get pretty mean in traffic, and the mean people can achieve new heights of vitriol. You expect somebody you're taking to jail to be angry, but parades and 5K runs were almost as bad. I can believe it! I worked my way through college working in the parking lots of Pearson International Airport, starting out as a parking attendant. The number of times that I was purposely bumped by a car, had my feet run over, or had someone actually charge at me with their vehicle were beyond count.
  • 10:36 PM - Ryujin quoted Lhorgrim in post You can now get a citation for making direct eye contact with a cop
    The 8 years? Rather standard. Eight years is far from 'standard.' Criminal cases are generally resolved in 5 years or less. Cases that take longer, like this one or the Toronto police corruption case that took 15 years to run to completion are of note precisely because they are so far beyond the pale. Generally speaking simple criminal cases go to trial within 2-3 years and are resolved rather quickly, once they do. goldomark, 8 years is incredibly long for a criminal case here. Almost unheard of. I could see a civil case dragging on that long maybe. Here a judge decides bond, and if you make it you're out until trial date. A prosecutor can review the charges and drop them before court if they don't feel it's a good case. Generally officers have immunity if they make a bad arrest, as long as they acted in good faith. I take you in for DUI because you were weaving and had balance issues. I don't smell alcohol but believe you are on prescription meds. You bring a doctor's state...
  • 10:20 PM - Ryujin quoted Lhorgrim in post You can now get a citation for making direct eye contact with a cop
    I'm not familiar with the details, but Wiki says over 1000 people were arrested and seems to link the arrests to a riot. Excessive force seems to be the main issue in the entry, though some questionable arrests and tactics are mentioned after the initial disturbance. I don't have much experience with civil disturbance situations. We did have some Black Bloc members at the 2000 Vice Presidential debate, but they didn't try to get through the perimeter to the debate venue. They marched and blocked some streets but didn't engage in any violence, so we didn't respond. I don't condone the law enforcement tactics at the summit, but I'm not familiar enough with the situation to say how they should have done it instead. I'm not sure how the Canadian system works with criminal charges, but in my area every arrest would be required to have an officer's name attached. It would be easy to hold someone accountable for a bad arrest. In a riot situation where mass arrests are made, the ground supervi...

Generally officers have immunity if they make a bad arrest, as long as they acted in good faith. I take you in for DUI because you were weaving and had balance issues. I don't smell alcohol but believe you are on prescription meds. You bring a doctor's statement to the prosecutor or to court and show that you have a medical condition that mimics intoxication. Charges are dropped, but the officer isn't charged because the arrest met a reasonableness standard. However, if I stop you and you exhibit no indicators of impaired driving and I arrest you anyway, then I could be charged with false arrest. More likely you would go for a civil payout and try to get the city's insurance ...

    This guy wasn't being charged with his actions, he was tagged for a restriction placed on him, I assume by a court?Yes. It doesn't say why the case took so long to get through court.The 8 years? Rather standard. Is it a difference in the civil court system?This is a criminal court case. Also don't know why a guy would be held for 5 days.If you break court orders, you go to jail. Is there a bond system and he couldn't bond out?There is, but if cops decide you stay behind bars, you stay. Whether is it legal or not. It never went to trial, so I'm guessing the prosecutor chose to drop charges?Yup.
  • 07:21 PM - Ryujin quoted Lhorgrim in post You can now get a citation for making direct eye contact with a cop
    That's true... if it actually happens. Every story I've ever been told about someone being thrown in jail "just for pissing off a cop" has failed to stand up to any scrutiny. An officer just can't take someone to jail without a criminal charge. It can look that way sometimes though. Say I stop a car for a traffic violation. Driver refuses to provide ID or give his/her information. I could take that person to jail for a simple traffic violation because I'm unable to cite them to court. Also they will not receive a bond at the jail until they see a judge unless they provide their info or ID. I never had that happen. I always warned people what would happen, and they always gave me enough info to issue the ticket. In some states refusal to sign a ticket will get you a trip to jail. In KY the tickets aren't signed by the recipient. If you don't take care of the ticket or come to court...Failure to Appear warrant. When you hear the stories about people getting arrested for "mouthing of...

    I doubt that the arrest citation listed "smart ass" as the reason somebody was taken to jail. Officers have to answer to prosecutors and judges eventually. I took quite a bit of verbal abuse from people, but in my area you still have to have a chargeable offense to lodge someone in the jail. Officers should have a thick skin. That being said, if you were a jerk to me and also had a $50 warrant for some traffic violation you forgot to pay a couple years ago, I would most certainly serve it. If you weren't a jerk I would advise you of the warrant and tell you to get it cleared up at the courthouse. If you had a warrant for something more serious I had no choice but to take you in. But, an officer that screwed over people just for being jerks wouldn't last very long. Defense attorneys would eat a guy like that for breakfast. It also raises red flags for other disciplinary issues like excessive force. The expression used up here is, "He failed the attitude test." I have little sympat...

    This kind of stuff drove me crazy when I was working. Most of the time I did not know the race of the person I was pulling over. I always tried to be professional, even when I was accused of profiling because I pulled a guy over at 0 dark 30 for failing to dim his high beams when we drove past each other. I gave him a written warning while he accused me of being racist. He wanted to know why I stopped him when there were drunks out on the roads and real crimes happening. Failure to dim is often an indicator of impaired driving, but what good would it do to try to explain that to someone who is convinced they got pulled over for driving while black? I always called people sir or ma'am on a stop. It may be a regional thing, but I just saw it as being courteous and professional. I'm pretty sure you were doing your job right. In the OT, the cop surely knew his race because the issue was eye contact. At which point, the cop maybe should have considered this not worth the trouble. ...
