But Thing isn't playing in Crimson Throne.

 

For Shattered Star we're just starting book 2. My players have finished the web enhancement (which was originally cut content anyway). They've just turned up at the Mushfens & met with Maroux (who, for obvious reasons, just had to have a Jamaican accent). I haven't read all of book 3 yet. I've managed slightly less than half of it. I must say I'm looking forwards to That Trap in book 2 and seeing how and if my players interract with it.

 

The gnashing pit I mentioned isn't part of book 2 of Crimson Throne. Some sadistic "genius" on the internet who converted all the stat blocks over decided to go really overboard on some of them to turn high cr foes into complete party killers (such as summoning a pit in the only doorway into a room when the original npc didn't have any pit related spells).

 

Because the wicked foe responsible escaped us we actually got sidetracked for 3 or 4 sessions tracking down the villain Garren would refer to as the "Wicked Wizard of the Pit!" And when we got our revenge it was sweet :). So yeah, that pit isn't in book 2 of Crimson Throne. The gm appologised for using the stat block that even he considered to be rediculously overpowered for our level, and happily worked our quest for vengeance into book 3 :).

I'm doing my own conversions for Crimson Throne as I've been unsatisfied with errors and irregular conversion methods from others. For some enemies I'll be making two versions, one as true as the original as possible, and another that uses advanced Paizo material that better fits the concept. For example, alchemist is a good fitting class for some enemies of the future in my opinion. I'll likely make them public once I've converted a book.

I very much enjoyed the web enhancement for book 2, and of course Maroux had to be Jamaican.

@J4 Coltrain: You just fit right in here, you know? :D

@Thing: I believe there is a thread about that very topic that I need to get around to replying to.

*Three weeks later*

 

"Hiya, Brunsk. Did they finally let you out of the hospita- Oh! Is that a vodka bottle down the crotch of your pants, or are you just happy to see me?"

"Da and njet. Da, is vodka. Only safe place for bottle. And njet, Brunsk not happy to see Gary."

Is there any way to change the text on the Spoiler's 'Show' button, so it reads 'Totally Not Porn'?

 

Might be the only way to prevent Thing from reading all the spoilers.

That's all part of the fun (but no hiding porn under the Spoiler tags :) )

So Curse of the Crimson Throne?  

You wouldn't think they would do a whole adventure path on the castle plumbing during that time of the month.

you guys are so nice. xD and @Hal...that first spoiler thing SCARED THE HELL OUT OF ME. JEEBUS.

 

and I'd still read them all.

 

our Brunsk is the first one I've met. he's silly and not smart bless his soul but his heart in the right spot. <33

 

BTW is there any way for me to upload pics I drew to the gallery? as much as I adore picking on Lockhart and having him do my bidding....I bet he gets tired of it himself. ^^;

I thought it was quite a nice image of a pleasant old lady who just wanted a hug :)

 

Hey Monkey, whatever that pic is, it is blocked from work :P
