  1. For anyone that was wondering, we did one session so far, mostly character building and stuff, but it was super fun. If anyone wants to get in, now is the time for you to get your character rolled in, because it will be much harder later.


  2. I posted this on the episode page, but I figured a dedicated thread to thank the Nerd Poker guys would be easy to track for them. So...

     

    Copy. Check. Paste. Check.

     

    This was so great.

    And going by what was requested, I'm going to say that my favorite moment of the podcast was (and I really had to narrow this one down...) was the invasion of the gas planet by the skeletal crawlers, when Mildred had to hide in the locker. Everyone was roleplaying on all cylinders, and action was turned to 11.

     

    I would like to thank Nerd Poker and another beloved d&d podcast I listen to Pretend Wizards for being one of the driving forces of helping succeed a critical hit against my alcoholism.

    I was drinking too much, and as a night person, I needed another activity to fill my usual galavanting about town while drunk. I was on the hunt as a new podcast listener, and I found Nerd Poker, where apparently a bunch of funny assholes played D&D, a game I played as a kid. I loved it then, and I figured I'd reminisce. I cranked through the first "season" in as little as two weeks while listening all day at work. (I work 14 hour shifts)

    Through listening to Sark and later Blaine, I was able to try DMing out with confidence, and I have had a dedicated group ever since.

    Through d&d, I was able to give up drinking, because adventuring has never given me hangovers, or left me with embarrassing stories. (Well there was this one about a false reality and a ring of teleportation... Long story.)

     

    Thank you guys so much, and along with Pretend Wizards, you may very well have saved at least one nerds life.

     

    I'm actually DMing a group from the forum here (we haven't started yet) and I plan on putting it in Sarks universe, so I actually have some questions for Sark... So Sark, if you're reading this... ;)

  4. I'm in North Carolina, so it doesn't look like my time zone is going to work very well...

    I'm still willing to give it a try though. I've been putting together a campaign for it in my spare time. It's about 70% fan service. Lol


  5. On a tablet, it's like a 2nd screen experience. You can roll and use chat, but it's not a full version of roll20.

    You can totally use Skype equally as effective, but roll20 has the means to roll dice and such.

    It can totally be done with a tablet, or even through like an Xbox on skype.


  6. If you've been following the band of adventurers you know that some earth shattering event has tainted the lands, causing everything and everyone to be 'roided out and of the lands respective color.

    I think the event was caused by...

     

    ...wait for it...

     

    DRAGONS!

    The chromatic dragons are all assholes, and the colors so far have responded with the lands "flavor"

    Red dragons have fire, while blue have lightning. So does everything of the chromatic lands.

     

    There could have been a council of powerful dragons that poisoned the land with their essence.

     

    This could prove hopeful for the gold lands though, as gold dragons are usually good, and hopefully, if my theory is correct, could prove a peaceful place for our favorite adventuring assholes to have some sanctuary.

     

    What are your theory's about what the hell is happening, and how does my theory stack up with what you guys know about the campaign so far?
