Apr 25, 2017 7:02 PM - Vlad: Same, be there in a few

Apr 25, 2017 11:39 AM - ANGE: I live in the city too.. so it makes sense for me.. we can talk about it tonight. Level 4 here we go.. I might be late got work stuff but I'm coming.
Apr 24, 2017 5:29 PM - AVacc: Works for me.. City is better ;)
Apr 24, 2017 5:28 PM - Vlad: Hey guys - I know some of you were saying that you wanted to try a different location due to the excessive amount of noise at the Geekery. Any thoughts about where we can relocate or if there is any interest in that?

We can try playing in my highrise if ya'll interested. I have a large common room with a few tables that we should be able to use for our game, and I am only two stops away from where are we currently playing.
Apr 19, 2017 4:52 PM - roussemberg: Good thing I moved out the way thankyou video games and natural geographic and discovery channel
Apr 19, 2017 2:44 PM - Rob R: Finally, some people failed a con save at the during the battle with the larva / myconid. I will let you know individually what happened.
Apr 19, 2017 2:43 PM - Rob R: Also I will work on the Obsidian Portal site and post a link by the weekend.
Apr 19, 2017 2:42 PM - Rob R: At work so can't post details - but you guys made 4th level.

Apr 11, 2017 6:19 PM - roussemberg: ok got you guys
Apr 11, 2017 3:59 PM - Rob R: OK - no game. we are skipping this week.
Apr 11, 2017 3:30 PM - AVacc: I'm OK with bagging it tonight
Apr 11, 2017 3:29 PM - ANGE: Yeah this looks bad for me.. Don't think I'll make it..
Apr 11, 2017 1:14 PM - ANGE: I should know by 2:30
Apr 11, 2017 11:10 AM - Rob R: yes Vacc - Will update before then. Not looking bueno - that's good in espanol for you gringos : )
Apr 11, 2017 10:46 AM - AVacc: It would be great if I could know before 5:30 if we are going to bag. I have my car in the city...
Apr 11, 2017 10:35 AM - ANGE: I'm on the same boat as Vlad have a late meeting in the city might end past 8. I'll give an update if it gets cancelled.
Apr 11, 2017 9:15 AM - Rob R: Thanks for the heads-up and have a good trip. Show up when you can (if you want) - late is better than nothing.
Apr 11, 2017 2:02 AM - Vlad: Heads up, I have to do a day trip to DC tomorrow, might not be able to make it back in time for the game
Apr 4, 2017 7:13 PM - Vlad: Just got out from work. On my way and should be there in about 40 minutes. Please start without me
Apr 4, 2017 3:07 PM - AVacc: I will be there on time
Apr 4, 2017 2:36 PM - ANGE: I should be able to make it on time..
Apr 4, 2017 2:10 PM - Vlad: Just as a heads up, i'll be a few minutes late today, can't even get out of work until 6:30.
Mar 29, 2017 11:23 PM - Rob R: 679 XP Earned (1st 2 sessions combined)
110 XP Earned (3rd session)
392 XP Earned (4th session)
Mar 29, 2017 7:24 PM - Frank: Just letting my fellow gamers know I posted an all original adventure to start on April 22 it's a Saturday and to be an ongoing campaign for those dedicated and brave enough to face my imagination!
Mar 29, 2017 10:04 AM - Rob R: We had a discussion w/ the store. We are good for every Tuesday. See everyone next week - Neverlight Grove awaits..........
Mar 28, 2017 7:06 PM - Vlad: Took a wrong train and totally overshot the right stop..should be there in 10 or so
Mar 28, 2017 7:02 PM - ahnfire: Sorry, I'm running about 10mins late. I'll be there as soon as I can.
Mar 28, 2017 3:11 PM - Rob R: Not Yet.........
Mar 28, 2017 11:49 AM - Vlad: Its been a while - remind me, are we level 3?
Mar 28, 2017 11:39 AM - Rob R: Sorry - Corrected it to 7 PM.
Mar 28, 2017 9:24 AM - roussemberg: got it
Mar 28, 2017 9:18 AM - AVacc: I think that is a typo -- We should be playing at 7pm as usual.
Mar 28, 2017 9:14 AM - roussemberg: it will be at 2:00pm today correct
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.
