Sea Princes Campaign – Ep62

The Crew of the Bird of Prey – Art by Mike

We love D&D. But sometimes it gets tired and old, so we look for ways to shake it up. This is the account of one of those times. Our campaign set in the World of Greyhawk that centered around the crew of the Sea Princes ship The Bird of Prey.

 

This campaign was also our attempt to prove two things: 1 – That we can, indeed return to a campaign after a hiatus. And 2 – Mark is a better roleplayer than he likes to admit. Maybe breaking the label of Powergamer (maybe).

    I’ve grown to like it more over the years. I actually started with another game system as my ‘home’ system when I first got into RPGS. Uncovering the details of its lore over the years has been great fun.

    I finally got around to this episode. I liked many of the scenarios Mort has on his blog Greyhawkery. I mean come on Mike you guys plug everything why not your own blog? On another note Pickles was one of my favorite characters to read about. I think what endeared me towards him was the fact he was a character in and of itself. Sad part is I know people like that in real life, though they certainly make things interesting, to say the least.

    It’s funny how Mike wanted to chuck the ability requisites for feats, because it was something we chatted about online. I said that skill and or level requirements made much more sense. The idea behind it was that training makes up for lack of inborn ability. Though I decided to keep both types of requisites, qualify by meeting one of two options for attaining the feat.

    Hope to hear more on the campaign front soon.

    Later
