I am DMing for a pack of new players — some grad students from KU — and they make the best decisions. Our Bard decided to talk to a beggar in a run-down town in the shadowfell. The beggar was, of course, a ghoul, and which grappled him and should have killed him, by rights, but I’ve homebrewed the death rules to minimize rerolling characters (I call the rules ‘Deaths Door;’ they feel good at the table, but make dying WAY harder).
They were chased by ghouls for like… 30 miles. Good times.
Also, we’re back! And it feels good. Pencils for Friday’s comic will be on Patreon shortly.
