Things I Learned at Altera Awakens, 9/17/17

1. I am ridiculously in love with the Jenga mechanic for Wizardry so far. I'm excited about watching that develop. Really good use of tension.
2. Cinna is, by nature, a warrior and a functionary, not a diplomat, and his patience for diplomatic bickering has a hard limit.
3. Oh good, it's not just Mathuradu that has highly involved names.
4. My goal of coming into play knowing a lot of other characters was the best decision I could have made and it hugely improved my experience of the game. I have a long history of not really enjoying the first two years of a campaign as I very slowly get to know everyone - so for me, this was like skipping straight to the awesome Season 3.
5. Sophia Ironbane really did me a solid.
6. Sophia Ironbane forgot to turn on the air conditioning, though. Jfc.
7. Seals upon Dragon Breath do not fuck around. Twelve bricks from a Tower, you say? Aie.
8. Having a ready source of pour-over coffee is how Mathuradu will bring civilization to Verinfall.
9. Kuuma gonna kill some bitches what don't listen.
10. Sages are also amazing. Shell 3 is my new favorite thing.
11. Cinna will pay cash up-front to delegate work he finds distasteful, or work he doesn't want to admit not knowing how to do.
12. Need to get greaves of some kind, because Parries are a ways off in my priorities.

I've had this shield since somewhere around 2002, when Jake Lacey made it for me. I used it for almost the whole of King's Gate. Today, I refoamed it. I think this was its second refoaming. Using it tomorrow at Altera Awakens is going to be like meeting an old friend... who has not aged a day.

Tonight in Tribality, I'm examining the new Unearthed Arcana, which offers revised rules for the eladrin subrace and new rules for the githyanki and githzerai. Let me know what you think!

Today in Harbinger of Doom, I'm writing about how we designed the villains of Dust to Dust, highlighting elements I would like to see in tabletop gaming. Enjoy!

I'm working on a PDF to release through Tribality Publishing, focusing on fey-related content for 5e. Right now, it includes:

* the Fey Highlord Patron for warlocks
* monster stats for fey knights, huntsmen, leashed terrors, fey enchanters, and others
* 14 fey highlords, story hooks, and replacement features or Invocations for their followers
* the Favored of the Highlords feat
* a collection of new magic items
* an adventure for 1st-level characters

Assuming there's ANY way to get you interested in a third-party product about the fey for 5e, what else would you like to see in it?

Well, THIS is frickin' cool.

Today in Tribality, I've created a new warlock Patron to be an OGL-friendly alternative to the Archfey Patron, called the Fey Highlord Patron. Enjoy!

Happy birthday, +Rabbit Stoddard! You are the love of my life and I am lucky beyond measure to get to raise these two wonderful boys with you.
