Thursday Thought’s: Why do online D&D campaign’s fail?

51gjhbnhskl-_sx375_bo1204203200_.jpg

I am looking for a new D&D group.

The last group that I was a part of, for a small story on what happened, the biggest issue was that life happened. Everyone was (for those of us that shown up for the few sessions that we did have) very nice and we made some headway into the campaign. The Dungeon Master is very nice and knowledgeable. I honestly have nothing bad to say about anyone or anything that had happened. At times, life has a different thing for you to pay attention to. I am not angry with anyone that was intended to be a part of the group either. Stuff just happens.

For as crappy as the situation is, it got me thinking. Why do online Dungeon & Dragon’s campaign’s fail?

Yes, I do believe that the group failed. We had an inconsistent time frame between sessions, players (who had things come up in their life and honestly that you can not be mad at them!) that did not show, and for lack of a better term we as character player’s are noobs. The intent of this particular group was to go through a dungeon crawl type of campaign and to learn mechanical ways to get through the fights in a better way. It did not lend itself to much RP; however, the interaction between the players was very good.

For as much as I would have loved for this to work out it just was not in the cards. For as inconstant as it was, I am still very happy with the short interactions that we had as a group. I honestly did and still do like the DM and the players I did interact with. Do I wish we had communicated more? Sure. Do I wish that we as a group that could have made it to sessions on a more consistent basis had a say on how this ended or continued? Yes!

For what it is worth, I did some digging around the Internet and from what I had found, other then general douchbaggery, the biggest issue that I have seen for groups and campaign’s that have failed is communication.

Weather something was changed by a DM or a player just trying to do the best for their characters that they needed to speak to their DM to change – talking about it seems to have been the biggest issue.

I know what a few of you are going to ask. Why not find a place locally that runs a game and jump on the chance and play in person? I would if there were games in session. However with the lack of interest or inconsistencies with scheduling at this point it just is not feasible for them to run a game currently.

So, I am bummed but I understand that life just happens.

Dungeon’s & Dragon’s: Dice Bag!

bagOver the weekend my family and I went to a local festival and had a great time.

There is a thrift store close and decided to check things out. I had not intended to purchase anything but I stumbled across a bag that I absolutely fell in love with. I was not sure what I was going to use it for but for a quarter you could not beat the price.

As soon as I seen the bag I knew, no matter the price, I would have made the purchase! It was way to cute to pass up. The original intent for the bag is for make up products; however, I had a different idea. So all of my dice are now in this bag and I could not be happier with my purchase!

Zephirah’s Adventure: Office Hours

dsc0673I very recently stumbled upon Adam’s youtube page while doing research for a D&D group that I was building a character sheet for. I wanted to learn more about the class that I had chosen to play and BOOM.

I really think that Adam has a lot of good ideas, has a very firm grasp on the rules of the game, and honestly a sassy attitude that I can get behind. In some ways, If I was not so new to Dungeons and Dragons, we are very similar in personalities. I tend to learn from people that have a bunch of experience in what my interest are. This case is no exception.

I do want to toss a word of caution out here for you guys and girls, their is a fair amount of cursing to where I try to limit the amount of them in a written form. I am not apologizing for what he is going to say language wise but If you will listen I am sure you will agree with the sediment.

So, how did you like the episode? Fantastic! (Yes, I loved it as well!)

Did any of you have similar situations to the writers / callers in the video? I would really love to know what you think.

Here are all of Adam’s social media links, if you liked what you had listened to, please give him a follow.

Featured Blog: The Pink Dice Chronicles!

12pcopaquepinkwithgoldIt is refreshing to see a Dungeon Master share their thoughts via a blog. It explain’s everything from how they started their journey with Dungeons and Dragons, their thoughts on various rules, and a plethora of issues that can and have come up during their sessions.

I would strongly encourage reading a blog like this. It gives a player of Dungeons and Dragons a different perspective. Also, for as infrequent as the post are for this particular blog in question, it still provides solid content and great commentary on a verity of topic’s.

Take the time to read “The Pink Dice Chronicles” here!

Now I want a set of pink dice, thanks! 🙂

Let’s get weird!

Yes, boy’s and girls, lets get weird but not in the way your thinking. Ew, Dont even go there. I am talking about music, silly.

For the last two weeks I have had three songs in my head and each song is very different. The first being Hollywood Undead’s Medicine from their ‘Notes from the Underground’ album. The group has been described as a rock rap group and usually I do not go for a style like this. As far in left field in comparison to the the other two song as it is, it has a theme of some pretty harsh realities that can happen in someones life.

Take a listen to the song:

The second song is Hunter by Galantis. Swedish electronic group comprised of Christian Karlsson and Linus Eklöw. The song is from their album “The Aviary”.  It is also the seventh track that features uncredited lead vocals from Hannah Wilson. I know with in the last month or so I have been a lot of this style of music in a verity of ways. Honestly, this version of the song has me so excited. When the bass dropped so did my heart.

Listen to the song:

The third song has grabbed my attention pretty swiftly. “In The Name Of Love” by Martin Garrix & Bebe Rexha is a pop inspired electronic song that has sunk its fangs into me. The song is a future bass that consist of an awesome blend of piano, bass, and guitar that hold together the song in such a way that forces you to pay attention.

Listen to the song:

So, with all the songs presented to you at this point. What has strung these specific sets of songs together for me?

The short answer: My Character in D&D currently. (I will not spoil things here kids. Sorry!) The longer answer: Just how will Zahara approach a situation that is will be in front of her eventually? I feel like the answers lay within the music here somewhere. How exactly, I am not sure. It will just depend on the adventure that she is involved in.

If you enjoyed any of the music you listened to today, please support the artist. Do not be that guy that steals music from the internet. That is just the douche way about going about it.

Feature Of The Week: D&D Dice!

 

Wednesday morning I was spending some time writing blog post and perusing through twitter when I had stumbled across a set of stunning purple galaxy dice. I promptly retweeted the photo.

I seriously believe I have a problem. Within the last month, I have purchased three full sets of dice for D&D, and four independent D20’s, and an extra random D4.  At the time of seeing the dice as shown in the photo, I also have my eyes set on two other full sets of dice.  The one set of dice that I have fell in love with recently is a set of purple steel. (The other set’s of dice can be found here and here.)

I am in love with collecting. These dice are unquestionably a set I would love to use in a session for my current campaign.

If you are interested in learning more about the artist or would like to purchase a set for yourself, please follow the following links:
