This is an interesting article on converting 1e monsters to 5e in case you want to play your old modules.

Okay, if you go south and end up in the wine cellar again, what is the plan of action then?

Topic: Make an Evil Core Class!
Subject: Old guy talking

I have never seen the point in playing evil characters. I have, as a DM, had evil parties before and without an exception, all of them have self destructed early in the game. They start killing each other off or won't work as a team and next thing you know - they are dead and blaming me.

I have railroaded with the best of them. I liked that this new module had that element to it because it felt familiar.

Nothing wrong will a bit of railroading at 1st level.

Module is interesting so far. Reminds me of a couple of the TSR 1st level ones.

Subject: I bought the starter kit.

Bought it. I figure I have paid 16 for modules before and it came with dice. How can you go wrong?

Blue dice. With pre-coloured numbers so you didn't have to buy a crayon either.

Subject: Blueprints - crudely drawn of course

Detailws to follow but the blueprints to the Cruise Liner called "Rim's Dream"

 photo clbp1.jpg

 photo clbp2.jpg

Engine Room: Located at the bottom of the ship, the engine room is under the command of the Chief Engineer. This area is restricted.

Crew’s Dorms: The majority of the crew of Rim’s Dream lives on this deck in dorm rooms. The crew’s mess hall and a crew “pub” are located on this deck, as well as a gym and a movie theater. The officers have their own wardrooms on this level. These rooms are quite elegant, as the officers often entertain favored guests among the passengers. Passengers are permitted on this deck, but only if they have an invitation from one of the officers or if they’re escorted by someone on the crew.

Verbena Restaurant: The largest restaurant aboard ship features elegant fine dining with white tablecloths, crystal, silver, and wait staff in fancy dress. Reserved seating. Tables are assigned when guests board the ship.

Verbena Club: Private bar, members only. Dark wood and low light. Cigars and brandy.

Lucky Lady Casino: The casino is huge, located in the center of the ship, for this is one of the main attractions. To reach the Verbena restaurant, passengers are required to walk through the casino (and thus be tempted to drop some cash). The casino operates twenty-four hours a day and features faro, blackjack, poker, slot machines, pachinko, and mahjong. Rooms for private, high-stakes games are available to high rollers. Security is tight aboard ship and tighter in the casino. Cameras keep watch on players as well as the dealers. No money changes hands in the casino. Players gamble for credits that are exchanged for cash at the Purser’s Office. A tab is extended to those who run a bit short. Losers are not permitted to leave the ship until their gambling debts are paid.

Pioneer Pub: One of the most popular bars on board, it’s meant to resemble a pub on one of the frontier planets. It features cedar plank wood walls, polished bar, and leather cushioned bar stools, with a large mirror behind the bar. Anyone who’s ever been in a real frontier bar would find this pretty darn amusin’.

Grand Lobby: Stunning area where passengers are welcomed aboard. Decorated in gold and red velvet, with sweeping staircases leading to the mezzanine on Deck 3 and a domed ceiling six stories above the floor, the lobby is an impressive sight. Passengers can find room assignments here, book tours, and request information at the reception desk.

Purser’s Office: Located behind the reception desk. The Purser is in charge of all money matters on board ship, including credit transfers. A vault contains large amounts of standard Alliance-issued paper notes. Just how large is a well-guarded secret.

Infirmary: Medical facility staffed by a doctor and two nurses. Four hospital beds. Small operating theater, for use only in case of emergency. Extremely ill patients are transported to the nearest Alliance hospital.

Docking: The docking areas can handle up to four yachts, as well as the ship’s lifeboats that double as shuttles. They don’t handle private shuttles due to security. Once docked, an airlock provides safe passage from the docked vessel to the cruise liner. Security personnel are on hand to check for weapons using an electronic weapons sweep.

The Bijou: Theater featuring live performances at night. High-kicking show girls in feathers and not much else.

Dance Hall: For those who like their dancing a bit more lively than quadrilles in the Grand Ballroom, the Dance Hall features a live band nightly. Popular with the young people.

Lilac Dining Room: Smaller and more elegant than Verbena. Tables are assigned when passengers board. Only those with penthouse staterooms are permitted to dine here.

Chart Room: Elegant bar that plays Chinese classical music. Walls are decorated with navigational charts.

Champagne Bar: Champagne and champagne cocktails are the only drinks served. Small, dark, romantic.

Grand Lobby Mezzanine: Overlooks the Grand Lobby below. Sweeping staircase leads down to Deck 2. Shops offering designer clothes for men and women, jewelry, sculpture, paintings, and sundries.

The Bijou: Balcony seating for the theater.

Library Bar: Walls are shelves lined with books. Leather chairs and couches. A cozy, quiet place for a drink.

Rooms on these levels are small with two beds that can be separated or combined into one. Small toilet with tiny shower. Small closet and chest of drawers. Porthole looks out into the black. Early morning maid service.

These rooms are larger and have a picture window with a stunning view. Couch and coffee table. Two beds that can be separated or combined into one. Larger closet, nicer bathroom. Morning maid service.

Ornate rooms with small living area, separate bedroom. Includes access to Lilac Dining Room. Afternoon maid service and specialty services available when scheduled in advance.

The Suite is the size of a small estate and has an entry hall, living room, dining area, and separate bedrooms. Comes with butler and access to Lilac Dining Room.

This deck’s main attraction is an indoor swimming pool,tennis courts, shuffleboard, and walking track.

Greenleaf Cafeteria: Open twenty-fours a day with food ranging from hot dogs to Peking duck. Dessert buffet at midnight.

Osiris Spa: Relax and enjoy a few hours of pampering. Mud baths, herbal wraps, massages, whirlpools, and steam rooms.

Grand Ballroom: Ballroom is a large room, beautifully decorated with living palm trees and exotic flowers. Tables and chairs surround a dance floor in the center.

Lookout Lounge: Connected to the Grand Ball, separated by the bar area, the lounge at the prow beneath the bridge. Large panoramic windows provide a breathtaking view of the heavens.

Bridge: Located at the top of the ship at its prow, the Bridge has state-of-the art navigational equipment. The First Officer is in charge of navigation and the Bridge. The captain will be on the Bridge during tricky maneuvers or emergencies. The Chief Radio Officer is in charge of communications.

The Bridge area is secured. Door is locked and only those officers and crew with special keycards can enter.

Ody - How are you finding 13th age? I have looked at that one a few times.

I will be heading up to my local game shop this morning to see if they have the Starter Kit.

Subject: yes

This is a pre-done module for the new Firefly RPG system. It is designed for Cortex Plus which I am not switching to, but it is a good setup.

In Rocinante, the next campaign "Who Mourns for Adonis" will be the first that is completely my own design. If it works well, I may write it up.

I have used a mana based system for magic for years in D&D games. Apparently I have never posted the mana rules in entirety on the Inn, I thought I had but I have not. I guess that is another project on my to-do list.

Topic: Destiny Flight - QnA
Subject: sounds like a plan

I am sure that every Captain in history has wished that he could make a plan based on all the facts and have it come to fruition. In reality, things never work out that well.

Don't let the "fear" of not knowing make you afraid to try things. One of the reasons I chose this module is that it is got so many plot twists and mno real direct solution as to how the crew will resolve them.

Topic: The Island of Putnam the Mad
Subject: just a note

Wembley looks at the cabinet and sees the liquor they had "borrowed" before was indeed still missing and there were still skeletons in the closet. There was no sign of the dead undead mice but the walking silver housecleaner probably took care of that.
