Escalation



Had a great time DMing last night. However, there was one frustrating encounter where the players were surprised by a Remhorhaz. The wizard's response was hold monster, and that was pretty much the end of the encounter. The monster was not proficient in any saving throws whatsoever, meaning it needed a natural 18 or higher in the die to break free. My challenging battle had become a game of teeball. What was the real problem here? Was it that the monster had no proficient saves? Or was the real problem spellcasting itself?

Board Game Campaigns


Got to play the Forbidden Stars Board Game the past two weekends. It's got a bit of a learning curve, but once you get past it your in for an exciting game. My first time with it was basically a throw away since we were all getting used to the rules. There are layers upon layers of strategic depth here. That's why I'm just going to go over a few of the finer points of the second game, and how it ties into using board game / campaign mashups.

Building A Game Table VI


I'm edging ever closer to completion! This weekend got the curves for top level of the table completed. Since these are going to be open both sides need to be finished. The radius was off a little bit so it took painstaking corrections to get them fitting correctly by adding thin strips of veneer. There was a lot of going back and forth to cut off minute shaving of the ends as well. With it being a curved piece, got this jig put together to make it easier to cut.

Building a Game Table V


 

This time we're working on the top tier. Both table halves are all sanded and ready to go. Naturally, the next step was to flip 'em over and clamp 'em.

Building a Game Table IV


Progress moves ever onward! Today got the curved corners glued up to the veneers and then attached them to the table. Notice all the clamps? If you're gluing then you need clamps, because clamps are a woodworker's best friend.
