    Apologies! I meant to get part 15 uploaded today but we had some server problems and I had to get some wargaming tables moved for the Student Nationals.

    Oh my word.

    ‘Froglins’ appear to be the greatest fantasy creation since someone said “Hey what about some new form of big creature and, guess what, it can breathe fire!”

    Yeah! Feel their revolutionary power – to be Goblins with a bad French accent!

    Session 15 gave us a couple of new terms as well as Froglins.

    For example:

    shavendwarves.com

    Baldazar’

    and the concept of a “masterwork toothpick

    Some other favourite quotes –

    On spell choice:

    “If you haven’t taken magic missile today you’re the worst wizard in the world.”

    On Paul’s occasional tendency towards the loquacious and verbose:

    (slowly, deliberately and elaborately) “With unerring accuracy a small missile goes PING-“

    “Just pick the target and roll the damage.”

    On the frequent player desire to sometimes skip some of the less challenging encounters and automatically nab the XP:

    “Rank up some goblins.”

    “We’ll just pretend we-“

    “Nooo, rank up some goblins.”

    On the waning respect for a certain ‘combat wizard’:

    “Ballazar will bravely step forward and shoot with his heavy crossbow.”

    “I snigger – he’s got no hair.”

    Can I finally add a couple of words of respect for Paul’s playing of Ballazar.

    Damn fine stuff – extraordinarily funny and completely unrelentingly chaotic and unpredictable

    After your review Ashles I think it is time to revisit some of the WLD. 😀

    I also love the fact that the writers of the Dungeon had a thrilling combat encounter in mind and in true Hollywood style a powerful Hobgoblin fighter challenges Gerout to an epic an exciting fight.

    Which Ballazar completely ruins by fireballing the room.

    As far as I can tell that particaular encounter is as follows:

    “He shouts in Goblin, He shouts ‘Challenge'”

    “Too late. I said I’d fireball this room.”

    “So as a ‘Lawful’ character you’re ignoring a one-on-one challenge?”

    “No he doesn’t have time to say it because I’ve gone (impersonating fireball) vshoompkshaw!”

    (slightly disbelieving) “So that’s your action? I’m not going to initiative- that’s your action? That you were actually aiming to fireball? So you were actually going to open the door and if it was filled with naked women who were chained to the wall you were going to fireball it anyway?”

    “No we were looking in the room (pause) and then he was going to fireball the room. If necessary.”

    (and that last bit is from Bastion of Torm!)

    It reminds me of the scene in Raiders of the Lost Ark where the swordsman displays spectacular weapon skills and prepares for an exciting fight with Indy.

    And Indy simply shoots him.

    Again this is what I love about D&D sessions – it’s probably what you actually would do in real life, not what fantasy characters normally do in standard plot set-pieces.

    Is Paul like this in the Cthulhu sessions?

    Yes he is a bit gung ho for example in Masks he broke into a certain establishment 3 times needless to say he disappeared on the third attempt. 😀
