This is an Into the Oddish game (chargen houserules here) using DNGN as the adventure. Jeb the footpad, Taki and Tabouli are now the adventuring party – Psychic Tiger Fodder (t-shirts available, all artist’s proceeds go to the World Wildlife Fund).
Psychic Tiger Fodder dragged a Space Wizard cultist’s corpse out of the dungeon. Tabouli’s ability to talk to ghosts paid off again. Plex was killed when he tried to leave the dungeon. Jeb the Cutpurse cut the cybernetics off Plex’s corpse once they dragged him out of the dungeon into the fresh spring air. The dungeon’s entrance opened onto an impact crater that the forest had grown over.
When the Space Wizard God tried to take Plex’s soul, the group jumped into action. Richter threw the ghost his elf rope (mental note, elf rope can be grabbed by ghosts…cool) and Taki blessed the endeavor. Tabouli prayed to his dragon-god, who took Plex’s soul from the Space Wizard. Good stuff.
An elder hireling was waiting for them with 3 mules. With the fresh air, the Psychic Tiger’s effects were wearing off. And, because I know Anthony loves airships, an airship was waiting for them, Eberron-style, called the Icarian Delight.
The thief died in his sleep, and so the Icarian Delight belonged to Psychic Tiger Fodder made dock at a nearby city.
Mucus joked abounded because I spend my Thursdays gaming with my friends and my dear friends are total monsters. I told them that to the NORTH is the Weeping Ice, to the SOUTH are the Jungle Highways, to the EAST is the 1000 Dukes’ War and the WEST is the Crystal Frontier.
Jeb got his hand taken off by a trusted bone-setter in the city so that the Mummy Rot wouldn’t spread up his arm. He plans to use Plex’s cybernetics, Richter wants nothing to do with the Space Wizard’s influence that might come with the arcane tech.
Jeb’s elf-dagger got nabbed by a metal statue’s magnetic pull, sticking to the statue’s body. When Jeb tried to get the dagger back, the statue animated and knocked him unconscious and when he tried again, under cover of Roddy the Shieldbearer’s shield, it broke Roddy’s ribs. Reluctantly, Jeb left the dagger there. There was no talk at all of taking the statue on to get the dagger back. Would it have gone differently if more STRENGTH checks had been failed and more weapons were stuck to the statue? We will never know.
Now what? We have to take next week off. Before the next game I’ll toss out some more ideas. We might run with this one a bit but we’re also at a good stopping point. We’ll see.
