DCC Campaign Update
This weekend we finally finished the (3rd part of the) adventure at hand. We got a couple of new 1st level characters (from new players in our group), namely an ex-professional-torturess turned mercenary warrior woman, and an ex-astrologer turned wizard (in an already wizard-heavy party).
The party learned:
-The first rule of not getting bored is "don't split up the party".
-The second rule is "don't hang out with four times more NPCs than you have players"!
-Charm person quickly creates little megalomaniacs.
-Said little megalomaniacs can get away with it, at least for a good long while, if they also have some serious magic missile power.
-Some Elves just really, really want to Summon a bear.
-When you're hanging out with a bunch of hired mercenaries, and a bunch of loyal Assassin's Guild assassins, sometimes the best answer is to just let them kill each other.
-A dude with a hoe can occasionally end up surviving to become a hero... but if his name is Olaf, he's also doomed to be called "Hoe-laf" for the rest of his career.
-Ogre Wizards have an excessive love of Color Spray.
-In Arkhome, wealthy parents tell their young children to behave or the halflings will come to eat them.
-Sometimes, the best strategy is to just hide out in a barn full of Giant Snails until the heat is off.
-Sometimes, the best plan is to just sell back the Old Families' children at a bargain price.
-Its not a good idea to start shooting at a non-belligerent Imp when you're surrounded by dozens of mafiosi.
-Imps are tough to assassinate.
-Once in a while, when a gang tries a move to take over the entire city of Arkhome, it may possibly work; but more likely the result will be that instead of two gangs squabbling for control over the city, you end up with six.
-Just because you've been geas-ed to be unable to talk about the Eye Tyrants, doesn't mean they aren't on their way.
-The Snake Witch is alive.
