Sam’s flask has a picture of a vampire clown picture of Matt, fusing with a picture of Travis to form a picture of Travis from the unreleased movie “To Have and To Hold”. Search ‘To Have and To Hold Trailer’ to learn more. The back is an old message saying “Turn your stuff into a Turtle” in the TMNT font, and also “Larry, I’m in DuckTales” scrawled at the top. I know I’m late to the game, but MonarchsFactory is really good. It’s just some classic geeking out over ideas for homebrew. Even when I disagree about how I would implement something, it still gets the creative wheels turning. Any moments I missed? Feel free to post them here. Is it Thursday yet?

I can honestly say I've never had a more visceral hatred for an NPC than the hatred I have for Lucien. My blood boils every time the M9 kowtows to his shitty little power moves or let's him get away with feeling in control. I quite literally seethed when they let Lucien into the tower. I cannot wait until they kill this asshole with extreme prejudice.

Hold on, does the circle of rags in the floor of the loft behind door #1 mean that Frumpkin is a real cat that Caleb's family had? Since he's in his early-mid 30's, that means either a) Frumpkin is a rather old cat Caleb turned into a familiar or b) the original Frumpkin died in the fire alongside Caleb's parents and Caleb used find familiar to summon a fey in the form of his old family cat and kept the name
Django 7 dagar sedan
The original Frumpkin was Caleb's childhood cat and died of old age before the fire.

If they were trying to get the info that Yudala has, they could've asked her to wait exactly 10 minutes before saying what she had to say, and then used those 10 minutes to scry on her, right? That feels a bit meta-gamey idk

I’ve always wondered about this. Does Molly know about the Eyes of Nine? Or The Order at least? Cuz I remember being weirded out the first time Molly “reunited” with Cree. Matt didn’t make Molly roll a deception check. If he didn’t have his past memories then Molly was talking vague enough to let Cree think he knew what she was referring to. I think the others even asked Molly what they talked about(?) and he said he didn’t know. I get not rolling for skill checks between PCs but the conversation with Cree was loaded enough to earn SOME kind of roll at least. Am I missing something?

2:41:41 Okay Beau what is the point in telling this "story". The party wants to put them at ease (I know that's not likely to happen given the situation), yet she's trying to put a veiled but not so veiled threat out there with a story about killing cultists and baby beasties, totally killing the cooperative sharing mood of the dinner.

Damn you Liam for making me cry. ...And also thank you Liam. Sometimes I forget how tormented Caleb is with his past, especially as he continues to grow as a character, and then we get smacked in the face with it. Its just completely heart breaking.

I just had like a mental break down during the "8th and 9th floor" scene...... thank god for comedic relief. At the same time Caleb and Beau said "endless possibilities" I said to myself while balling "infinite future". Needless to say I lost it at that point. Oh trauma... you are a bitter bitch...

I know right?! Like this whole North Arc has been a running series of hinky as fuck setups (here's an abomination you either fight disadvantaged or get incapacitated because of a light-bulb, here's a snow worm that incapacitates you on first attack unless you roll really high & I'll ignore the stats I stated in the campaign book I wrote & instantly attacks the person with reactive armour to break the polymorph). Lucien is just a shady flagship for it. Matt keeps push M9 to drop into fight mode with Lucien. I get that he's likely frustrated that M9 keeps borking a good chunk of his big-bad encounters, but yeeesh.
