Gaming With Kids: Anime 5e Session 2



They convinced the goblin that there was not time for a nap and asked him if he wanted to replace Haud Srallac as the leader of the goblins.


He confirms that he is and mentions that “we could cook him.” As they walk to the camp, they begin negotiating with him for the terms of his betrayal, hoping to get to keep the gem. They are unable to reach an agreement before they reached the camp.


As they crest the nearby hill, they can see that there are only three goblins in the camp with Srallac. The goblin immediately walked through the gate and presented the gen to Srallac, telling him, “I have brought the stone master, these fools tried to convince me to betray you on the way here.”


Srallac turned to Kai and Vrail with a toothy grin and said, “Thanks for bringing me dinner.”


Kai leapt into the air to flee as we entered initiative and Srallac took a shot at her with his bow but missed. One of the goblins hit Kai with a shortbow and another hit Vrail with a scimitar. Vrail managed to slip past the goblin henchman and land a vicious blow on Srallac with his shortsword. Green blood flowed onto the ground.


Despite seeing Vrail engaged in a melee with five foes, Kai decided to keep fleeing and leave her friend to his fate. Karm struck quickly though as a goblin managed to hit her at the outer range of his shortbow, knocking her unconscious. She fell to the ground. Three of the other goblins hit Vrail dealing a deep cuts. He was growing dizzy with the blood loss as he lashed out at Srallac one last time. He connected and severed the haud’s head from its neck. The goblins grew quiet.


“Srallac is dead!” their goblin guide shrieked, “Now I am the leader of all goblins!”


Vrail took the gem off Srallac’s body, rounded up the antidote, and set the greys he was holding prisoner free. He walked over to Kai to help her, but found it was too late, the fall had killed her. He tried to use the gem on her, hoping it had some magical powers to raise her, but it did not work.


Vrail, played by my niece, got enough XP to reach level two.


My daughter made a fairy magical girl as her new character.

Traveller: Session 33

  This session was run on June 15, 2023.   130-2108   They confronted Reverend Kavanaugh about the wrench and the explosive bolts and he changed his story again. He now claimed that, even in his revised story, he had still tried to protect Dieter and his memory. Dieter had not just surrendered to fate and drawn straws after his failed attempt to poison Kavanaugh at breakfast. As soon as it was clear that the paralytic was not working, he attempted to choke Kavanaugh. As the two wrestled, Kavanaugh grabbed a wrench from the toolbox, left in the common room during their repair efforts, and bashed Dieter over the head. He had then flushed Dieter’s body, along with the wrench, out of the airlock. He claimed not to have known about the explosive bolts and said that, because there were only two of them aboard, there were sixteen hours each day where only one of them was awake.   Unable to determine if this latest story was true, they informed him that they stil

Traveller: Session 5

    This is part of an ongoing campaign. You can find the other sessions over on the sidebar. This session was run on October 27, 2022. This session contains secret communications between me and the individual players. This means that these recaps do not cover everything that happened in the session. I will be reporting only the information that all players had access to.   131-1116   After the council meeting ended, Nashu, Archduke Ishuggi’s chief of staff, pulled him aside. Following the revelation that Yuri Lang, the emperor’s would-be assassin, had been a member of Archduke Adair’s intelligence service and had been involved in a combined operation with Gateway Intelligence, she had the staff run overlap checks on all recent contacts. The goal was to determine if there were any more unexpected connections between people that could be a threat to Ishuggi or the emperor.   She learned that, in 1113, Yuri Lang (“Baron Pazi”), Zurzi (Archduke Bzrk’s chief of st

Hex Crawls

Those of you who have been reading this blog know that I have never run a megadungeon before. I have always used more realistic dungeon settings, keeping all underground areas to a minimum and keeping the over all size of castles and the like fairly small. There is another style of gaming I have never indulged in: the hex crawl. I have never seen hexes as discrete chunks of the map. I always just used them as a guide to find distance if they were present and not worrying about themif they were not. I have always taken a more continuous view of overland maps. This is another streak that will be ending with my upcoming OSRIC game. I will be using James M's Outdoor Map as a starting pont in my campaign. I will be heavily modifying it for my purposes but most of the features will stay the same. I will be adding my own versions of Castles Blackmoor and Greyhawk to the map. I have been struggling with how a hex crawl works. How do I know if they find features in the hex and isn't 5 m
