In which I looked at the One Page Dungeon Contest 2012 and chose the Monastery at Dor Amon, winner of 2012’s Best Library award.
This is an Into the Oddish game (chargen houserules here). Jeb the footpad, Taki and Tabouli and Gus are now the adventuring party – Psychic Tiger Fodder.
Quotes of the night:
This hand has seen some shit.
It is a monastery. Of course I brought a goat.
Then they shouldn’t have been evil.
What more or less happened:
Jeb got the hang of his cybernetic eye and hand, fell gifts of the Wizard-God.
Gus and Taki worked out a deal with a book-eating devil.
Richter burned the first monk guards with Mage Fire, then used Quietlands Legion to raise their dead bodies and set them after the monks remaining.
I got better at not going to the dice when someone wanted to know something but asking follow-up questions, “What kind of thing are you looking for here? How are you looking? etc.” and then telling them some strange shit that would make the adventure more meaningful because these odd places are better the more strange tidbits these adventuring thieves know about them.
Here’s what I want to remember about tonight if I remember nothing else:
After a long day of work, situated in a long week, in the midst of a very hectic and chaotic month, a friend of mine was having a rough time and when we asked what we, his friends, could do he said he just wanted to game and so we gamed. Everything else is details.
