Puzzle Solved!

Rewards

As the winner of yesterday’s Puzzle Challenge, Sage  gets to pick one item from the list to appear on the hobgoblin cache. As runners up, Adrian, Irik and Martin also pick one, but only among the elixirs.

Elixirs

Re-Enactment

Since the Lightning Bolt that killed Bam was shown to be illegal, I will allow a re-roll of all the events of the last round of combat (round 16). But before that, Bam will still get his turn at the end of round 15. Quantum physics and the multiverse theory require us to re-evaluate events that that have emerged from changed root causes.

We will begin next session on Bam’s turn, then proceed to round 16.

Rules for Re-Enactment

  • No basing off prior knowledge: Nobody knows a Lightning Bolt is waiting as none have been fired. This means no switching to bows! Valthurne only did so after seeing Bam fried extra crispy.  But in this re-enactment, that hasn’t happened (yet).
  • No healing:  At this point you were all very confident that the battle was practically won. Those near the caster would especially not have spent one action to heal instead of attacking.
  • If this extends beyond round 16, and it becomes clear that its advisable to switch to bows, then (and only then)  is this  allowed. Same goes for healing.

    Announcement for Episode 4

    This week in Red Hand of Doom:

    Sunrise.

    Prytannia finally stood from her morning prayers, divine magic coursing through her veins. It was time.

    “Do what you must priestess,” Jorr said for all to hear. “But do it quickly for we have company.”

    All eyes darted to where Jorr was pointing.  A dark shadow was approaching from the northern sky. And it was approaching fast.

    Announcement for Episode 3

    Well guys, it’s finally done. After a long arduous battle, the elusive and deadly Ozyrrandion is dead.

    But I have got to say, that has got to be the longest short battle. The battle took about 38 rounds. That’s barely 4 minutes of in-game time.

    Let’s see.

    We started combat back in November 2008, and because of a long break, resumed combat in October 2009.  Basically we accomplished 4 minutes of in-game action in 11 months.

    An now for the announcements.

    twirl02

    This week in Red Hand of Doom:

    Time is running out! The Red Hand is expected to cross Skull Gorge Bridge in two days. Will our heroes keep control over the bridge long enough for Prytannia to destroy its foundations with Stone Shape in the morning?

    Tune in on Thursday, October 29, 2009 for the continuation of the Red Hand of Doom. Check your local time for airdates:

    5 or 6 am*
    2 pm – Denmark and Germany
    9 pm – Philippines

    *I don’t know when you roll back your clocks in the US, so just base it on 14:00 (GMT+1)

    Some announcements:

    • A new player will be joining us on Thursday
    • I forgot to say that Ozy had loot on him. I’ll give you time to look over them before we start combat with the hobgoblin patrol

    Announcement for Season 4 Episode 2

    Unfortunately, Irik won’t be available for this weeks game. We can either continue with the campaign, and I’ll run Valthurne as NPC or we could have a side game, some pickup game we could play casually when we are not complete. I will still be online at the usual game time and we could decide then what to do.

    Blog Migration

    Let’s get organized so we can start season 4 soon.

    First of all, we are moving the game blog over to Obsidian Portal. Obsidian Portal is a wiki/website/blog for role playing games. It offers more functionality for managing a game, and in-game information an announcements. They have forums and NPC trackers and such. And, we will be around other role playing blogs/wiki/websites, which is also kinda cool.

    To get started, create an account at http://www.obsidianportal.com/. Then create your character (Valthurne, Bam, Prytannia, etc…your character is different from your account name).

    Once you have your account name, send it to me and I will invite you to our campaign : Red Hand of Doom by the GeminiGM. Once you accept that invite, you are in the campaign and able to make posts and such.

    Announcements and such from now on all be done in the new blog.

    See you all soon!

    4th Season of Red Hand of Doom Confirmed!

    Valthurne, Prytannia, Iroel and Bam are back! It is confirmed, Red Hand of Doom will be returning this October for its 4th Season!

    The 3rd season was suddenly interrupted by the writer’s strike (the DM had to finish his writing his thesis).

    The 4th season will begin where the last season left off: a cliff-hanging, gorge-dropping battle between our heroes and the acid spewing dragon Ozyrrandion. Your favorite characters will grace your screens once more this October in an all new time slot!

    As of this moment, there are only rumors from the studio executives as to what we can expect from the new season of Red Hand of Doom. Our staff at 3.5 E! News however has the inside scoop:

    • Irik, Adrian and Neb will be reprising their roles as Valthurne, Bam and Prytannia.
    • Martin’s agents are under negotiations with the studio for introducing a new character to replace Iroel.
    • Sands has declined to appear for the fourth season
    • There have been no confirmed time slots yet, however, the old time slot, as well as Sundays are being considered.

    Stay tuned for more announcements!
