I am happy to announce that I will be running DDHC-TYP The Sunless Citadel at Virtual Kobold Con the weekend of May 1st on Fantasy Grounds.
I have scheduled the module to run on 3 sessions, 4 hours each. This will be my first time running a hardcover adventure as an Adventurers League legal module. Please check out my calendar for more info.
This adventure was run by one of the channels moderators and was mostly theater of the mind. So far the season 9 AL content has been a little slow for me as a player. I would prefer a little more combat and less “retrieval/investigation” quests. All in all I feel like the storyline is building up to something super exciting.
Are you interested in playing D&D Adventurers League games on Fantasy Grounds? Maybe you are looking for a game of Traveller, Vampire the Masquerade, or AD&D2. DM Greg runs all these games and more free of cost.
I played in my first Adventurers League game on Fantasy Grounds last night as a player. It was part of the Virtual Gary Con going on this weekend. First off it was a great time. The DM was excellent and the party worked really well with each other and were engaged in voice on Discord. We did a lot of theater of the mind utilizing Fantasy Grounds for dice rolls and a couple of tactical maps.
The adventure was DDAL09-01 Escape From Elturgard. I played as a level 1 Dwarf Cleric named Krogan Warbrew utilizing the Forge Domain from Xanathars Guide to Everything. I believe it was a 5 part module that we were able to complete right at the 4 hour mark.
The highlight of Krogann’s adventure was on the final encounter. The party was investigating a murder in the middle of the night. Krogan, who had been woken from a deep slumber, was walking around the camp with his warhammer, shield, and nothing on but his small clothes. Upon discovering the perpetrator, and walking around almost naked for an hour, Krogan had had enough. He dropped his shield to wield his warhammer in 2 hands, channeled Searing Smite into his holy weapon, and utilized his inspiration to critical hit the final boss pumping in 25 points of damage. It was the kind of dice roll every player dreams of! Upon smiting his foe Krogan stood over his vanquished enemy raising his warhammer in salute to the god Moradin and started gyrating wildly in exultation, waving his banana hammock in all its glory.
