Mar 27, 2017 2:23 PM - Rob R: Yes indeed. I will be going to the store today to let them know we are meeting.
Mar 27, 2017 1:40 PM - ANGE: Are we meeting tomorrow...?
Mar 20, 2017 7:52 PM - Rob R: Actually - I need to cancel the session. I apologize for the late notice but something has came up and I have no flexibility to work around it. We will meet next week.
Mar 20, 2017 4:03 PM - Vlad: Sorry guys, looks like I might not be able to make it to the game tomorrow - we just had a sudden change of upper management in the company where I work, so every evening this week is calls and meetings non-stop.
Mar 15, 2017 6:11 AM - Frank: Sorry rob I'm fishing as of now I have two open spots for my game for tomorrow Thursday 16th in running Lord of White Fields 8th lvl
Mar 13, 2017 4:45 PM - Rob R: I forgot Art wasn't going to be around. So let's call it (it was an longshot anyway). Next session on the 21st.
Mar 13, 2017 4:44 PM - Rob R: Don't choke on that nutmeg !@#$%^&&
Mar 13, 2017 4:33 PM - AVacc: While you all are being buried in the snow, I am in the Caribbean. I vote for postponement so I don't miss a session. I will have a Nutmeg Pina Colada and toast you all. Stay safe and warm.
Mar 13, 2017 2:29 PM - Vlad: I would be fine with rescheduling - staying home in a snowstorm doesn't sound like a horrible idea
Mar 13, 2017 11:28 AM - roussemberg: I don't mind rescheduling
Mar 13, 2017 11:16 AM - Rob R: I was wondering the same thing - not to mention the store might not open. I am walking from a few blocks over so for me it's not an issue. I'll leave it up to players. Who would have an issue if 12" of snow hit the city.... : )
Mar 13, 2017 10:37 AM - Vlad: Do you guys want to reschedule tomorrow's game on account of the storm? Not sure how many people are going to have trouble getting to the location
Mar 8, 2017 5:28 PM - Rob R: Thanks for the heads-up. I did tell them it will be a regular game (at least I think I did). I will pop in tonight and let them know. Matter of fact I also remember Elena asking (hoping?) we could get the big table in the back if we were going to be paying.
Mar 8, 2017 3:52 PM - ANGE: Oh by the way ROB... you should let the store know this is happening every week now.. cause last time they didn't know we were coming and we almost didn't get a table..
Mar 7, 2017 7:08 PM - roussemberg: Won't be able to make it tonight something came up last second.
Mar 7, 2017 7:04 PM - Vlad: Be there in a few minutes
Mar 7, 2017 10:13 AM - ANGE: See you all tonight!!
Mar 5, 2017 10:11 PM - Rob R: Also will be fleshing out the Obsidian Portal site this week and should be good to go by the following session.
Mar 5, 2017 10:10 PM - Rob R: 330 xp per PC. See you Tuesday. Also bring your current PC and be prepared to make lv 3 during the session.
Feb 28, 2017 6:11 PM - roussemberg: I'm going to be a little late so you guys can start without me but i'll be there.
Feb 28, 2017 3:42 PM - ANGE: See u all later..
Feb 27, 2017 11:56 AM - Rob R: Also update on potential cost. As of now it still seems to be free to play at the store on Tuesdays. I hear they might turn it into an "RPG" Night. Don't know what that might mean as to any change in pricing policy.
Feb 27, 2017 11:55 AM - Rob R: Reminder - Game tomorrow.
Feb 24, 2017 12:59 PM - AVacc: rob - I thought I had your address but I cant find it. You can reach me at art [at] vaccarino.com
Feb 21, 2017 1:58 PM - Rob R: @ Avacc - can you e-mail me. I can't seem to find your e-mail address.
Feb 15, 2017 11:22 AM - Rob R: @ Avacc - I got distracted between posts (pesky job) but let's talk about Obsidian (I don't have much experience with it). I'll send you an e-mail later this week.
Feb 15, 2017 11:12 AM - ahnfire: Ok, thanks.
Feb 15, 2017 11:09 AM - AVacc: You need to sign up but it is a super useful tool :)
Feb 15, 2017 11:07 AM - ahnfire: Do we all have to sign up for Obsidian Portal or is it viewable without an account?
Feb 15, 2017 10:42 AM - AVacc: Awesome... Send an invite to AVacc :)
Feb 15, 2017 10:23 AM - Rob R: I have a Obsidian Portal account I have "used" in the past. I created a new campaign and am starting to populate the NPCs. We'll discuss more at our next session.
Feb 14, 2017 1:20 PM - roussemberg: Yea I was thinking a fan base wiki @Ange should think bout doing it too
Feb 14, 2017 12:29 PM - AVacc: rather than you having to do all the game prep AND having to update the portal.
Feb 14, 2017 12:28 PM - AVacc: I would be willing to serve as the record keeper - if we use my portal Ascendant account wed get more features without you having to pay for it. (It's free for players)
Feb 14, 2017 11:22 AM - AVacc: I am a pretty big fan of

I have not used it in years but it has calendar, forums, wiki etc...

Feb 14, 2017 11:21 AM - roussemberg: That is a super idea
Feb 14, 2017 11:14 AM - Rob R: Also I am thinking of incorporating a campaign website where notes and things can be added so that we spend less time rehashing things and more time with the combat and role-playing. Any suggestions?
Feb 14, 2017 11:13 AM - Rob R: We will skip today (obvs - Valentine's Day) and skip next Tuesday (the 21st). We will then plan on playing every Tuesday after that.
Feb 13, 2017 10:33 AM - ANGE: Rob - You said we are skin this Tuesday and the next or just this Tuesday.
Feb 8, 2017 5:10 PM - ANGE: if you get 3 or more point in one of the Categories you RSVP score raises.. I just gave AVacc the 3 point to raise his score to 1
Feb 8, 2017 5:06 PM - ANGE: Don't vote for me I have enough points as it is
Feb 8, 2017 12:08 PM - ANGE: Remember to vote to get points..
Feb 8, 2017 12:12 AM - roussemberg: it was very awesome cant wait till next time
Feb 7, 2017 11:46 PM - AVacc: Great session. Thanks, Rob
Feb 7, 2017 7:00 PM - Vlad: Be there shortly..like 3 stops away
Feb 7, 2017 5:53 PM - roussemberg: 42-11 Broadway, Astoria, NY 11103 is the address right
Feb 7, 2017 3:22 PM - ANGE: Back up character (Half-Elf Warlock of Vol the Undying)
Feb 7, 2017 2:06 PM - ANGE: There's food all around in Broadway and Steinway. Bagels, Pizza, Halal trucks, Sushi, Korean, McDs, Empanadas, I think a ramen shop open next to store haven't tried it yet... etc. is Astoria..
Feb 7, 2017 12:21 PM - Rob R: there is some food nearby (within 4 blocks). Not sure if I've ever seen anyone really eat there? Angel?
Feb 7, 2017 11:00 AM - AVacc: Looking forward to it. Is there food nearby or should we brown bag it?
Feb 7, 2017 10:38 AM - ANGE: See you later.. Probably be the first one there.
Feb 7, 2017 10:22 AM - Rob R: See everyone tonight.
Feb 6, 2017 10:41 AM - Rob R: The adventurer league on Wednesday is a $5 charge. I would guess everyone should be prepared to pay $5 and be pleasantly surprised if there is no charge.
Feb 6, 2017 10:40 AM - Rob R: All - As I noted in the box under the picture, there might be a charge by the store. I was told no by one of the employees but I have heard that sometimes there are mistakes made in communication.
Feb 6, 2017 10:39 AM - Rob R: @ roussemberg - Firbolgs are cool.
Feb 6, 2017 10:38 AM - Rob R: @ Vlad - I'll look at them tonight but from memory those were pretty firmly in the evil camp. Not sure how to allow them in a non-evil party.
Feb 6, 2017 10:37 AM - Rob R: @ ahnfire - Either of those are fine. As far as unbalanced - VGtM has some verbiage that references some of them being DM beware. As I said, I am OK with any and all. Just be careful about aggressive reading of rules. I tend to err on the side of caution (balance) when making rulings.
Feb 6, 2017 10:34 AM - Rob R: Couple of responses
Feb 4, 2017 11:17 PM - roussemberg: you cool with firbolg as a backup character?
Feb 4, 2017 4:16 PM - Vlad: Rob, to confirm, are villainous classes allowed? (Death cleric / oathbreaker)
Feb 2, 2017 9:38 PM - roussemberg: Ok then I'm going to be a lizardfolk or a triton
Feb 2, 2017 7:52 PM - Rob R: Roussemberg - just checked on the grung. That would be a no. There is no pc write-up version of this class.
Feb 2, 2017 6:40 PM - ahnfire: So I was thinking of either a Tabaxi ranger or a Yuan-ti warlock. Which of the monstrous races are considered unbalanced?
Feb 2, 2017 12:26 PM - AVacc: Wouldn't have it any other way.
Feb 2, 2017 12:24 PM - Rob R: ANGE -I will be running this at normal difficulty. For those new to me DM - I play bad guys = to their intelligence / wisdom. So the game will feel more difficult at times than others.
Feb 2, 2017 12:21 PM - Rob R: ANGE brings up a good point - everyone should have a backup PC.
Feb 2, 2017 12:21 PM - Rob R: Also, now will be a good time to point out we will only be using WoTC official sources (no DM Guild material or Unearthed Arcana).
Feb 2, 2017 12:19 PM - Rob R: Yes Roussemberg. I was refering to the PC version of the races i Volos. I'll take a look at at P156 when I get home. Does it have stat modifiers and such on P156?
Feb 2, 2017 11:27 AM - ANGE: Rob - Should we have a back up character? Are you going to run this at the high difficulty LVL
Feb 2, 2017 11:25 AM - ANGE: What is a gung or grung? I'm confused..
Feb 1, 2017 11:49 PM - roussemberg: Volos guide p156, i have a couple i would like to play just not sure which u prefer because you were talking about unbalance and stuff. from {normal monster manual= Oni,Minotaur,(volos= kobold, lizard-folk, Gung and then there are the githyanki
Feb 1, 2017 4:16 PM - Rob R: Grung? What book is it from?
Feb 1, 2017 3:49 PM - Cris A.: Also, thoroughly flexible on class
Feb 1, 2017 3:48 PM - Cris A.: I waited to commit until I was sure I could make it on time - so I'll hop onto the waitlist!
Feb 1, 2017 1:56 PM - roussemberg: I ment to say grung just clarifying that
Feb 1, 2017 1:38 PM - roussemberg: So I can even be a gringos if I want to ? Or is it just the new races they added
Feb 1, 2017 1:30 PM - Rob R: Correct.
Feb 1, 2017 12:23 PM - ANGE: Just clarifying we who are playing Monstrous Races in term of alignment we can't be evil, right?
Feb 1, 2017 11:58 AM - Rob R: Also All - Don't forget -here's a chance to play a monstrous race from Volo's Guide.
Feb 1, 2017 11:56 AM - Rob R: Hop right in
Feb 1, 2017 11:44 AM - roussemberg: Cool u don't mind me joining do you?
Feb 1, 2017 11:41 AM - Rob R: So how long will it last? Great Question. If your referring to the sessions I would say 4 hours. The campaign itself will be many months - probably at least 4 to 6
Feb 1, 2017 11:40 AM - Rob R: Good Catch. But let's be clear..... She could have a dump stat in charisma (not saying she does) and you would still roll a 1 : )
Feb 1, 2017 7:46 AM - AVacc: Just a note that the 14th is Valentine's day... My GF has 18 Charisma and she told me we are having dinner. I rolled a 1 to resist.
Jan 31, 2017 11:40 PM - roussemberg: how long would it last if you guys dont mind me asking?
Jan 31, 2017 1:16 PM - Rob R: Glad your in AVacc. Don't worry about the 21st. the 7th will be the start date assuming we have at least 5.
Jan 31, 2017 1:14 PM - Rob R: @ Chris A - if you are planning on attending don't forget to "commit" - there should be a button somewhere near the list to the right (my screen as the DM looks different than yours so I am working off of memory).
Jan 31, 2017 12:00 PM - ahnfire: Oh sorry, I didn't realize someone else was already going to be a ranger. I could play something else instead. I hadn't really committed to anything yet.
Jan 31, 2017 11:44 AM - ANGE: Welcome.. ahnfire.
Jan 31, 2017 11:42 AM - ANGE: 2 Rangers that should be interesting...
Jan 30, 2017 8:38 PM - Vlad: Hey Ange, it's been a while indeed. Sad I missed your storm kings game!
Jan 30, 2017 6:01 PM - AVacc: Looking forward to this - I cant make it Tuesday the 21st but otherwise I am good. Do you still plan to start on the 7th?
Jan 30, 2017 3:51 PM - ahnfire: Hi, I'm new to the whole in-person RPG thing. I live in the area though and thought I'd try this out. I'm one of those people who've listened to a bunch of D&D podcasts but never really got a chance to play, aside from one online Pathfinder campaign.
Jan 30, 2017 10:24 AM - ANGE: Welcome Cris.. Vlad its been a while.
Jan 28, 2017 7:20 AM - Cris A.: I'm certainly interested - I haven't played of late, but I went to numerous rpgconnect games way back in 2013-2014, and this looks like a fun way to get back into things. Only problem would be the 45 minute travel time for me - which requires schedule juggling - but I might be able to make it.
Jan 26, 2017 1:29 PM - Rob R: I looked over the monstrous races, Eh why not? I'll just give all the bad guys a +2 damage bonus against bugbears (due to raging hatred against the superiority of their race). j/king. maybe.....
Jan 25, 2017 1:20 PM - Rob R: Also, you can let John know I'm not in tonight cause I have a work thing. I already let the store know I won't be in so they can free up my spot.
Jan 25, 2017 1:19 PM - Rob R: Yes level 1. Sure you can mention it but I don't want anyone who has played it before unless someone I know can vouch for them to play as if they didn't know the mod.
Jan 25, 2017 1:02 PM - ANGE: LVL 1 right? Should I mention it at the store tonight. Maybe some might be interested. Specially your DM John.
Jan 25, 2017 12:23 PM - Rob R: Also, even if someone plays an underdark-race PC, they won't be from the region or they will be from the region but suffering amnesia. ; )
Jan 25, 2017 12:21 PM - Rob R: I'm leaning towards allowing the monstrous classes - at least definately the ones that are "balanced." Those they warn the DM about, I wanna take a closer look at.
Jan 25, 2017 12:19 PM - Rob R: Art - How's everything? Hope you can come down. It's been too long.
Jan 24, 2017 5:21 PM - ANGE: Hobgoblin stats:
+2 Con +1 Int
30 ft. speed
60 ft. darkvision
Proficient with 2 martial weapons and light armor
Saving Face: 1/short rest - If you miss with an attack roll, fail an ability check, or fail a saving throw, you can gain a bonus on the roll equal to the number of allies you can see within 30 ft. (max 5)
Jan 24, 2017 5:16 PM - ANGE:  Goblin Druid (Moon or Land) depending on the party strengths.. AVacc - You playing HoboGobo EK...?
Jan 24, 2017 3:59 PM - AVacc: I never went away :) Getting to queens from work is easy - but getting home to Westchester from Queens is unpleasant at best. Without a car it takes well over an hour :/

With that said I have been jones'n for a game :)
Jan 24, 2017 3:48 PM - ANGE: Rob - Only Monstrous classes??
Jan 24, 2017 3:05 PM - ANGE: Arthur you're alive... it's 4 quick stops on the E/M from the CitiCenter venue..
Jan 24, 2017 1:54 PM - AVacc: Queens is pretty hard for me :/
Jan 23, 2017 9:36 PM - ANGE: F**k Yeah
Jan 23, 2017 6:36 PM - Rob R: Looking to gauge interest for a game in Queens. First session subject to change but based on location's availability will be Tuesdays.
