this Meetup is announced to the Group

Dangerous Delves & Dragon Lairs

  • Needs a date

  • Needs a location

  • I would like to DM a new type of D&D experience. Ever wanted to fight the biggest and baddest monsters? Using my biggest, badest and most powerful minis I will create a fun bi-weelky adventure for Game Theory gamers. Every week I will attepmt to kill the party (in a fun and entertaining way of course). Some weeks it could be giants others a beholder or even a balor, you get the picture. Maybe even a dragon lair! This would be not be part of the RPGA. Bring a new character or an old one I would post the level of play for each delve. Are you scared yet?

    Well Mike, if you are interested in campaign, THAT I would be interested. And for rule set, anything other than 4e would be my preference. I think I could even live with 4e, if the group included roleplayers.

    My suggestion would be to go for the campaign. So in the campaign would there be fighting in each and every session, or more figuring out situations.

    I will give Forgotten Realms the credit for multiple manifestation Genasi. Great way to run a split personality.

    If there's one thing that this group is good at, it's going easy on new players. I'm pretty new myself, but I've never felt like things were over my head. Even if these are difficult encounters (which they almost certainly will be), there will be enough other strong characters and smart players that you shouldn't have too much trouble.

    I'd be interested in this. I played 2nd and 3rd edition back in high school but haven't played for years...missed 3.5 completely and have just borrowed someone's 4E phb to learn the new rules. I was hoping to find a casual, non-elaborate game to join for starters and this sounds like it might be what I'm looking for.

    I don't have any D&D miniatures, though -- but it sounds like you have that taken care of?

    Awesome Idea :)

    November 13, 2010

  • Mike R.

    The original idea here was for me to dust off my large collection of minis and put them to good use and also give players a chance to play different character types or races and try them out. I've been playing 4E since it came out and have only been able to play a ranger and a bard so far and have not seen a dragon or anything close. I would preffer a long running campaign, but lets just take the gloves off for little while and have some fun!!!! We still need more players to get this going.

    Don, there's no reason to be snarky... Don't poop all over Mike's idea (or a game that many of us enjoy) b/c it doesn't hold up to your definition of 'roleplaying'

  • Adam C.

    Actually, Don, the idea was posted as a dungeon delve where you are pit up against some of the biggest baddest monsters in the game. There's a large portion of the dnd population that this kind of thing would appeal to. There actually is quite a bit of strategy involved in fighting some of the more big baddies in the dnd world. I'm not saying there's anything wrong with some RP. In fact i love it. But i don't think a delve is a place where you'll find a lot of it.

    No problem, Johnathan. I just wanted an honest answer, and not a bunch of BS. As I first surmised, you are interested in playing a "war" game. And if that is the case, I prefer a host of war games over D&D. I really like strategy games, but in this regard, D&D is more a Chinese menu of powers than a real tactical or strategic game.

    Now a role play game would have the characters working together, try to puzzle out how to bribe, blackmail, or intimate the "monster". An entire evening of fun.

    I would be very disappointed if I showed up to " to fight the biggest and baddest monsters" and someone talked them into surrendering. "Sorry guys for driving all that way for 1 player to end things in 5 mins, see ya next week!"

    November 11, 2010

  • Don H.

    Could you explain that a bit more? Will we have to find the monsters? Can any be reasoned with, such that no combat occurs? Would the other players be interested in that? BTW acting in character, just to kill something, is rather shallow from the role playing game perspective.

    If I were to develop a D&D scenario, I would call it Justice. In this scenario, the characters would be hired to find some mass murderers - only to find that it is their own characters they are pursuing.

    It's been my experience that the roleplaying percent comes from the players not the DM. All I can do is set the stage and provide the opportunity.

    November 11, 2010

  • Don H.

    So what percent of time would players be role playing? 75% or above? Would be interested in playing if that were the case. Anything but an out of the box scenario suits me.

  • Mike R.

    I was thinking 4e but if there was more interest in 3.5 I could do that.

  • Eric Vincent M.

    What rules set are you considering? 3.5? Pathfinder? 4e?

    November 9, 2010

  • Mike R.

    Oh there will be roleplaying!!!! and death and mayhem - MUH AH HA

    Bitter, party of 1

    Further evidence that D&D has nothing to do with role playing games. Have fun with the tactical battle session.
