Welcome to the Tavern of the Falling Leaves! You, dear adventurer, have found your way here after an excursion to to the Mountains of Madness. I am Sama, your barkeep and would like to hear your tale. Are you one of the few who survived the perils of the adventure? If so, pull up a chair and let us hear of your exploits! Or, perhaps you perished in the Mountains... as so many do... but your spirit has returned here for one last round and some commiseration with others who battled and lost. Either way, you are welcome to stay for a bit and chat. This is a friendly Tavern - free from the cares and hardship of the adventure. The first round is on us!



Only players who have completed the adventure and GameMasters should post in this thread. If you haven't yet completed your adventure, please be warned that this thread will be full of spoilers and things you shouldn't read ... yet. Come back when you are done

Many foolhardy brave adventures are leaving for the mountains, in a vain attempt to find some fame and a fortune. Those sensible unlucky people who remained here and those few insane fools who returned can have some fun trying to guess the first to die or go insane in the foothills.

To make it easy, let us only consider the first ten individuals or pairs to depart this fine establishment for their doom adventure.

Poll: Who will die first?
Simplicity itself, select the individual or pair who you believe will be first to depant the living or to leave their sanity behind.
Who will it be?

An impressive selection of naïve stalwart folks there. Still, I'm sure they'll find the Mountains a bit of a pushover.

I have not killed anyone yet, but the first of my brave adventurers to realise I was too tough, and give up, has done so.

So if a Randolf Carter comes in here, you know what to do ...

Several of my players have won 2 gold from the rich halfling gambler - I wonder if their lucky dice will hold out to the end?

The one of my players who has been talking the biggest trash spent a whole paragraph manning up on the halfling gambler, then lost 1,1,1,3,11 to the halfling's 2,4,2,3,11. cool The Murkwiddle tavern now knows him as "Tiebreaker," to his intense shame.

You proceed from a false assumption. I am a Vulcan. I have no ego to bruise.

Some are still in the Tavern, another has met the Wyvern...most of them did win gold from the halfling though. Can I have some other set of dice? Mine aren't working properly.

I made it no further than the The Valley of Giants. Here is where I met my demise.

Hopefully my body will be transported back to my hometown for a proper buriel (but I doubt it)!

Good luck to the remaining adventurers.

edit - Also wanted to thank my GM - DaJackel - for assisting in my journey.

432 more deaths required then ;-)


Is this faster or slower than the Dungeon of Doom?

Slightly slower. We had 500 in 24 hours last time around. We launched on a Saturday evening last time.

We're also not killing people nearly as fast as the DoD shredded them. That's by design, however!

We also started with many many fewer GMs last time

This time is much less stressful on the GMs, well, except for Dave.

Is it just me, or are there a huge number of dwarven rogues? My group is crawling with them.

I was noticing that too. About half the people I am DMing are rogues, half are fighters, and I only have one Cleric and one Wizard. Most of the races are either Human or Dwarf.

Yes. A quick check of my group turned up

Quote:
2/3 = Dwarf
1/4 = Human
1/10 = Elf

and

Quote:
3/5 = Rogue
1/5 = Cleric
remainder = Fighter, Wizard, Thief, in that order

Yep, I have a lot of dwarven rogues too!

also, I just had my first player who did something other than run from the Wyvern. His name is snake, so he figured a wyvern is nothing but a flying snake, so he is attempting to speak Serpentus to it and see if it will talk to him. FUN!

This must be a direct result of Wavemotion's comment about Dwarven Rogues in the prequel thread in the Tavern. Of course, I know how effective they are (as do exactly three other people) but my mouth is sealed. All will be revealed once the game is finished and my analysis is made public.

Shield? I'm the one with the shield. devil

One of my players just tried, and ended up with a Poisoned (+1) Broken (–1) Rusty Longsword. He's some beat up over the whole affair, since the Wyvern didn't cooperate with his 14.

I have a player (My only wizard, I believe) who's already pretty much insane (talking to voices and imaginary friends, etc). I kinda hope he losses so I can make him go...uh, sane? More insane? Not sure how that works.

Regardless, he's on the chopping block!
