The Pursuit of Tal Lorvas

Cinematic Combat

Sup yo. I was looking around at the DnD forum and I found this: It has some pretty neat advice on how to make combat more cinematic and lively.



Damn. Took us a looong time to get this up and running. What, like a month before the DM had all Backgrounds? I mean how hard can it be… Anyways. I am aroused(!) with excitement! It’s gonne be so frickin’ great playing some D ‘n D again. + I found old tiles for the DM from my D ‘n D game from hasbro from i dunno 4 years back?

Anyways – I am looking forward to it! : D

Pre start

So there I was, looking at the bright wall that is my computer screen, a background he said. Eugh. And I even had to choose a class! So many choices! Well, I’ve always had an affinity for melee classes, and since I also play rogue in WoW I thought, why not give it a try here? It was a not-so-stealthy half orc rogue, sporting a spiked-chain in a martial arts style, very fancy. He also had one eye. In any case, I had this great idea for a wizard, I can’t mention my great idea here yet in case I’ll need it for a time yet to come, but it is a magnificent idea! Turns out one of our other players wanted to be a wizard, so I forfeit and made it a sorcerer instead, no biggie, after all I required was an arcane wielding nutcase. But, we still needed a healer to keep our sorry asses alive. I prayed for weeks, hoping someone would roll a leader-type, but to no avail, all we had were two other strikers, a controller and a defender. I contemplated for a time, maybe we could see this through without a healer, we did have a lot of dpr, or at least we should have. sigh I started looking around for any leader class I would even be remotely happy to play with, bard? too loud. Artificer? too techy. Cleric? well, in all our games we had a player who only played cleric, a cleric shooting lazor from her eyes and nursed us like we were her kids. No way I’d play that. then I saw the Battle cleric, at first I had dismissed it as a bad version of the devoted cleric. But when I looked closer, I came to realize this was a pretty interesting class, combined with a savage natured character this PC could be made manly enough for me to consider playing! Magnificent.

Even though I very much doubt it will ever be forgotten, I have to mention it took Malthe just about a month to come up with a background. Laughing material for years I say!

Welcome to your Adventure Log!
A blog for your campaign

Every campaign gets an Adventure Log, a blog for your adventures!

While the wiki is great for organizing your campaign world, it’s not the best way to chronicle your adventures. For that purpose, you need a blog!

The Adventure Log will allow you to chronologically order the happenings of your campaign. It serves as the record of what has passed. After each gaming session, come to the Adventure Log and write up what happened. In time, it will grow into a great story!

Best of all, each Adventure Log post is also a wiki page! You can link back and forth with your wiki, characters, and so forth as you wish.

One final tip: Before you jump in and try to write up the entire history for your campaign, take a deep breath. Rather than spending days writing and getting exhausted, I would suggest writing a quick “Story So Far” with only a summary. Then, get back to gaming! Grow your Adventure Log over time, rather than all at once.
