Behind the Scenes

Date: THU06MAR2014

DM's Notes: I appreciate the guys putting up with the chaos that is family life. We got in five minutes before Ross and Paul, and then had to clean up puppy poop, take care of children, clean off the table, coordinate meals, console a toddler, direct a child, redirect a teenager, tweak some characters, et cetera, ad nauseum. I don't think we really even started truly playing until eight o'clock, after I put Sarah to bed. We ran late, partially because I don't have a clock where I can see it, and partially because Sam and Ross both wanted a piece of ebonite pie and all three wanted some good set up for down the road, adventure wise. T'was a good lil adventure that changed the future of Rakore – and none of it was planned. Paul did choose to rename his character Aragonite to Ferric, so that's going to cause some interesting fixes issues. Probably the single coolest moment of the evening was having a fight in the dark with an orc ambush, and a one-two punch from Ivy and Yurok takes the boss down from 60 hit points, to nothing, in one round. Boom, baby!
