11 Players, Cragmaw Castle, 2 Hours

11 Players, Cragmaw Castle, 2 Hours

November 3, 2014 3 Comments

My 11 player table cranked through the entirety of Cragmaw Castle in only two hours. I’m very impressed. I did remove a couple of rooms, simply because I didn’t have enough stuff to make the entirety of it. Using Terraclips, I assembled the castle the day before. It took some finagling, but I managed to […]

Back when I was running D&D Encounters for 4th Edition (The Borderlands season), I ran a large table. We had anywhere between 7 and 10 players, many of them middle school boys. With 4e, it was difficult, but I was able to fit in a single combat encounter in an evening, with a large group. […]

Well, that was unexpected… I went into last week’s session of Tyranny of Dragons without really knowing what would happen. They had left a group of cultists and kobolds dead and mangled, and were on their way to check into a whole army of cultists of the Dragon Queen. Upon arriving at the hillside the […]

Last Wednesday, we settled in for a session of D&D Encounters at The Comic Book Shop at Northtown. We played for about to and a half hours, and managed to get through quite a bit of adventure, considering I had nine players at my table, as did the other table. I won’t bore you with […]

At ConCarolinas back in 2008, I had the chance to play in a fantastic game of Necessary Evil for Savage Worlds. The whole party was playing supervillains in World War II infiltrating a Nazi stronghold. We would be given our freedom if we worked for the allies. After fighting past Nazi guards and roided-out Frankenstein […]

Last night, I ran a table of 15 people in a session of character creation for D&D Encounters, and it only took two hours. I showed up around 4:45, and already 6 players had gathered. While I set up, they sat and chatted with one another, more and more people trickled in. When two of […]
