D&D Next - Tomb of Horrors
Cost: $0.00
Level: 10

First Session: Sunday -- June 30th, 2013 -- 11:00 AM
[Eastern Time]

Approx. Length: 2-4 sessions

Come one and all, step right up and have your soul ripped from you by Acererak. Make sure you bring a backup character, scratch that, bring two backup characters(not kidding). There's no starting magic items, the designers state as much, and starting gold is still 150gp! They say that too. The system is not set up right now to let players have Mithril Chain, or magic items etc.

Tomb of Horrors was originally written for and used at the 1975 Origins 1 convention. Gygax designed the adventure both to challenge the skill of expert players in his own campaign, and to test players who boasted of having mighty player characters able to best any challenge. The module, coded S1, was the first in the S-series, or special series of modules. Several versions of the adventure have been published, the first in 1978, and the most recent, published for the D&D fourth edition, in 2010.

The module's plot revolves around the tomb of the demi-lich Acererak. The player characters must battle their way past a variety of monsters and traps, with the ultimate goal of destroying Acererak. Tomb of Horrors is considered one of the greatest Dungeons & Dragons modules of all time, as well as one of the most difficult.

Somewhere under a lost and lonely hill of grim and foreboding aspect lies a labryinthine crypt. It is filled with terrible traps and not a few strange and ferocious monsters to slay the unwary. It is filled with rich treasures both precious and magical, but in addition to the aforementioned guardians, there is said to be a demi-lich who still wards his final haunt. Only the large and well prepared parties of the bravest and strongest should even consider the attempt to enter this crypt.

Jul 2, 2013 2:47 PM - Nastia: Yeah. Thanks. It was fun, comical and terrifying all at once.
Jul 2, 2013 2:38 PM - Tracy: Hi all! Great game and thanks Dan for running it!
Jun 30, 2013 11:02 AM - Salrandin: Hey guys im in the atrium
Jun 30, 2013 10:31 AM - Connolly206: on my way. should be there by 11:10 latest
Jun 30, 2013 10:13 AM - Connolly206: Okay I will come, if you guys can bring extra characters that will help a lot cause i dont have one. See you at 11:00 at citi center
Jun 30, 2013 10:03 AM - Xerek: turns out, I have 3 chars built and ready to go, so if anyone needs options ;)
Jun 30, 2013 10:01 AM - Capt_Dan: Connolly - If you're free and want to play, please show - I have characters built. I'm sure I can kill you by 2ish.
Jun 30, 2013 9:42 AM - Connolly206: Hey guys, In a pinch I can still in fact get there if you really need one, however I'm going to have to make a character ASAP if that's the case and also I am running shadowfell at 3:00, so I would have to jump out to get set up at 2:45. Anyway let me know so I can get started if you are in need. Andrew
Jun 30, 2013 9:35 AM - Salrandin: okay i will be coming takes me about 1.5 hours. I have to take LIRR and figure my way out on the subway.
Jun 30, 2013 9:34 AM - Xerek: I would assume yes, and Connolly may still show up right?
Jun 30, 2013 9:00 AM - Salrandin: Are we still playing today with 4?
Jun 29, 2013 9:05 PM - Tommy T: Sorry, guys. Between an upper respitory infection I've been dealing with for a few weeks and dental surgery on Monday, I'm going to sit this one out.
Jun 28, 2013 9:15 PM - Capt_Dan: Tommy, no problem.
Jun 28, 2013 6:21 PM - Tommy T: Right now it's not looking great for me being able to make it. June has been a very hectic month for me, but I'll do my best.
Jun 28, 2013 6:20 PM - Salrandin: I wont have a character but I am fine with playing cleric.
Jun 24, 2013 2:16 PM - Capt_Dan: If you wish to make a char, do it at home.if you're unsure, i'll have a few pre-gens as well. Because it is still a test, and not a finished product, it's currently balanced for basic armor, so yes, thatis what you get... Also, someone should probably be a cleric...
Jun 23, 2013 5:23 PM - Nastia: So do we make our characters at home or at the session? Ig yeah then how shall i go about getting armor >> Creating a pvl gives 150gp which is the most basic one
Jun 21, 2013 9:02 PM - Capt_Dan: Salrandin, if you have nothing - don't worry. Just bring a good attitude and active imagination.
Jun 21, 2013 7:12 AM - Xerek: Citi Center is the big building at 53rd and Lexington. There's a fountain and a subway stop right there. Go to the atrium on the ground floor. As far as dice, don't worry about it, so long as you bring your self and a sense of adventure, everything will fall into place. Don' Worry.
Jun 20, 2013 11:35 PM - Salrandin: I am not sure where this place is.
Jun 20, 2013 11:18 PM - Salrandin: How do I commit? I am going to have to order some dice. I currently don't have anything so what else would I need?
Jun 20, 2013 9:48 PM - Tracy: Sal commit and come join us! This is the play test edition and very intuitive. You'll fit right in.
Jun 20, 2013 8:37 PM - Xerek: If only there were like buttons on here... Although I prefer mine stirred, not shaken ;)
Jun 20, 2013 7:27 PM - Salrandin: Hi guys, just moved to Long Island and would like to meet a group of friendly people to hang out with and play some DnD. Though I am very rusty.
Jun 19, 2013 6:21 PM - Capt_Dan: Tracy - you have to sign back in to my CoC game...
Jun 19, 2013 6:13 PM - Capt_Dan: ToH is fairly classic, and with a balanced party, can work for three or six, so don't put yourself out. But thanks!
Jun 19, 2013 11:11 AM - Connolly206: If you are still short players as this gets close count me in. I hate to see a good game go unplayed. Still I'm just going to stay on the interested list and not commit till I know for sure you guys need one, but for your players counts consider me a +1 if you need it.
Jun 19, 2013 10:09 AM - Tracy: p.s. I like to mix it up...2 parts map/minis...2 parts theatre of the mind...shake and serve over ice.
Jun 19, 2013 10:08 AM - Tracy: I'm pretty sure I can drag my roommate out of bed for this so we at least have 4. :)
Jun 14, 2013 3:37 PM - Tracy: Well sure - look at the title and there it is. :p
Jun 14, 2013 3:02 PM - Capt_Dan: Oh, one more thing, do you want to do minis/maps or all in the head? Let me know...
Jun 14, 2013 3:02 PM - Capt_Dan: Tracy, I'm pretty sure that it says in the listing - D&D Next - Tomb of Horrors...
Jun 14, 2013 2:47 PM - Tracy: Aren't we cheeky! lol I jusst re-read, it doesn't say DnD next, but it does indicate it if you are familiar with character creation. My bad. lol
Jun 12, 2013 2:13 PM - Capt_Dan: Characters can be made oruse pregens, if you don't know the rules, don't worry, it is straightforward enough.
Jun 12, 2013 2:13 PM - Capt_Dan: Next, like what it says it is.
Jun 12, 2013 1:38 PM - Tracy: Is this the DnD Next or 4.0 version?
Jun 11, 2013 3:53 PM - Tracy: in!
Jun 11, 2013 7:36 AM - Capt_Dan: A second shot at running this...
