Kevin, your point that this may not be the smartest DM has been proven. I tip my hat to you, sir.
In this one case, I think it may be more a case of the DM being exasperated out of his mind, rather than the limits to said mind.
Never bet against stupidity, Rock.
Whose? The DM’s or the player’s? Either one can cause a DM to crack and spill a vital secret.
You go, Morty! Beat the game module with LOGIC! 😆
Morty is cool and should get some hot loot soon! 😀
Honestly, I’m now tempted to make an adventure around some insane high level retired adventurer who built his menagerie of death traps etc. just to relive the thrill of his glory days whenever he does ANYTHING. Bonus points if he’s not a spell caster, so he actually DOES have to do all that back-flippin’ and etc.
If that’s going to be a pbp-adventure, I might like to get in on that adventure. Sounds interesting. ^^
“Wow, MY grandpa didn’t do backflips over a pitfull of spikes to get to the fridge.”
maybe I played too many parkour games but wouldn’t that be a cinch for a rouge? Faith Conners or Altair could do that in there sleep, hell even Laura Croft.
whats stopping them from using the chains as a swing btw?
Are you sure you didn’t mean “rogue?” ( http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Rouge_(cosmetics) )
In any case, I’m convinced that some of these dungeons are places were summer homes or whatever for Grimtooth the Troll (Heck, he regenerates, so what’s a few spikes to him?)
Nothing Stephen. It’s just a die roll, and then bubbly, dirty death. Of course the WHOLE PARTY needs to cross, not just the rogue, so THAT might present a problem…
Unless there is a switch on the other side that activates a magical rainbow bridge that lasts for an hour, so the wizard who lives here could just flip the switch and go around his house and just be back in an hour. Yay magical rainbow bridges!
Even better if it was a double rainbow bridge all the way.
Double rainbows? What does it mean?
If I had to guess, they’re talking about this: http://www.cnn.com/2010/TECH/web/07/14/double.rainbows/index.html
Ah, the living, crazy proof why you shouldn’t do drugs.
LOL! Thanks anon. That’s what I was quoting.
Why this isn’t a trapped room at all, it is actually a day spa, and all that mud is for the therapeutic mud bath. Just cause it might melt away Your skin doesn’t mean it will not reguvinate and moisterize mine.
And I see Bunker has sheathed his sword in the proper place.
Uh oh. In the place where Highlanders keeps theirs when they go to the beach?
Cue the “this was your father’s watch” jokes.
But the answer is… hammerspace. Right. Hammerspace.
Wait, did Martin even remember to program a sheath for the sword he added for Bunker? Am i thinking too much about this?
It’s good to know he can get as good as he gives.
I wonder what Martin’s and Bunker’s plan was. It looks like they told Enkidu and Freya about the hacked adventure (well, Freya was the first one to suspect something fishy was going on), but left Zobbie and Morty out of the loop. If that is the case, I foresee troubles ahead once Morty and Zobbie find out. After all, Morty considers Bunker his best friend, while Zobbie will see it as just another proof of sisterly betrayal.
Unless they’re just happy because the adventure was easy.
In any case, a powerful wizard wouldn’t need a secret door. He’d just use teleport to get in and out.
How many times a day can you cross your house then?
How many times do you NEED to go to the broom closet on the other side of the mud pit?
That’s where I keep all my best dresses!
I mean, robes. Wizard robes. Manly wizard robes.
1st law of bad dungeon design, everything you need is always on the other side of the boiling mud pit. We can be assured that the fridge and the bathroom are on opposite ends of the dungeon.
Would this place even be considered a “home?” Seems like these dungeons and such are just places to keep your high-end gear and treasure so you don’t have to be worried about a group of jerks breaking in and stealing your shit. But of course the jerks just see it as a challenge and come looking for your loot anyway. Jerks.
Storing your shit: FAIL.
The thing is, this just isn’t his “home” proper- it’s like saying the moat, walls etc are the lord’s “home”. He’s got his quarters in the main keep, everything’s pretty much close by and that’s it.
You don’t design your house in a way that forces you to cross several hundred meters or more of death-trap filled dungeons every time you wake up to take a piss at night, still groggy from sleep. That’s more of a front-lawn area, and just like your average front-lawn, anyone who wasn’t invited should expect to get shot/mauled by the dog/shot by the dog then mauled.
So yea, there’s not much call for secret passages in such places, not for a powerful wizard anyway.
(Suthaze, in a Clint Eastwood voice) Get off my LAWN!
I don’t think Eastwood has the right voice for it, he’s too calm and quiet.
I’m picturing the stereotypical hillbilly’s drawl, like they have in FO3’s DLC, Point Lookout.
(Thats where I got the “Get off my lawn” reference.)
Don’t know about anyone else, but I’d be getting the fuck off that man’s lawn!
Something familiar about it.
Well, I kinda figured that from the video’s title, I’m still not blind, you know, which just goes to disprove that saying about masturbation . I haven’t watched that one but something’s still familiar about it.
