I just had an amazing session of #theQuietYear with my two sons (almost 10 yo and almost 6 yo). It was dead serious and a lot of fun. At my elder son suggestion we played a community in a pocket dimension, with gates opening and closing to other dimensions of danger and opportunity.
Here's our map.
I mean, this is just silly (in a fun way), but you should definitely check out this blog for killer clockpunk central Asian #osr romantic fantasy!
A fun oneshot using the #DungeonWorld hack known as oneshot world, with my two sons (5 and 9) and my good friend and neighbor (and #rpg co-conspirator) Sigal. She played a rogue and my sons played a paladin and a druid, and they had to escape an evil baron's prison through the monster infested sewers. 😁
A perfect Friday evening!
@kensanata a question: how complicated would it be for a non-programmer (though moderately computer and linux savvy) user like myself to set up a blog like the one you are using (assume paying a bit for hosting isn't a problem)? What do I need to read? Is it a complex net of things I need to master or something more accessible?
I think giving a class xp bonuses for having certain stats cannot be understood as anything but traditionalism. This is such a clunky piece of d&d history... can't see any logic behind modern #osr using it.
Convince me otherwise!
Three of them tried to lift the stone, and noticed that the iron pegs were lifting with the stone. They continued to lift and the a great hammer slammed down from the ceiling and into the door, instantly killing Girl Brian (may Roho avenge her death).
The party was shocked and distressed (though Juice rummaged through what was left of Brian and took some loot, including the cursed magic ring she herself hid from the others), but ventured into the next room on wobbly feet.
The village healer/amateur chaos priestess, Allergy.
The village idiot, Juice.
The farm girl, Brian (the girl), deceased.
The hunter, Brian (the boy).
The Blacksmith, Shraga.
The Shepherd, Stas.
Our first session included the first excursion into the tomb. After some grave robbing and some minor traps (and both Juice and Girl Brian pocketing some treasure when the others weren't looking), they got to a door barred by a great slab of stone on two iron pegs.
So the oneshot became a twoshot as I continued running Tomb of the Serpent Kings for my friends.
Their bunch of villagers were excommunicated and accused of heresy for the simple crime of secretly all worshipping Roho III, a minor chaos god dedicated to offering pacts of revenge to people who feel wronged 😁😈.
Today their healer/amateur chaos priestess first received a chaos spell blessing from Roho, generated using #MazeRats' random spell generation table.
Ran Tomb of the Serpent Kings #osr tutorial thingy as a oneshot on Monday using a homebrew system I just whipped up in thirty minutes. It was crazy amounts of fun!
