Mass Effect's cooperative multiplayer (circa 2 and 3, not so much Andromeda) has been my long-time gold standard for online fun. I'd like that to be true with Legendary.
Hard agree. I loved the ME3 multiplayer. Such a good time.

Re: Episode 30: Once More Into the Book ...

Bannock will gather the party and their companions together to explain the mission. "Here is why we have re-entered the Book. We aim to defeat the Dragon Valos once and for all, and see that his soul is is absorbed into the Sphere of Annihilaton (the Heart). And, once that is done, our mission is to...

Re: Episode 29: His Master's Voice

Bannock will immediately sheathe his sword and drop to a knee, eyes downcast and deferential, stammering a response, clearly in awe of those assembled. He begins to speak falteringly, and does not look about to his audience or his companions until he finishes. "Sun Father, gathered host, I, er, I me...

Re: Episode 29: His Master's Voice

Bannock will reluctantly concede the points the rest of the party makes. However, he will express that he is loathe to enter the book, and wants nothing to do with fighting the dragon again, if at all possible. He'd much prefer to get back to the real world and put all of this as far behind them as ...

Re: Episode 29: His Master's Voice

Bannock's suggestion would be to do what is necessary to get back out into the real world with both the Book and the dragon still in the cage. Then, perhaps it would be best to seek out someone more powerful to hand both the Book and the caged dragon over to. It would be better if none of us had con...

Magic: the Gathering Arena

So, I've been sucked back into M:tG Arena. So far I am having a really good time playing. I'm not sinking any extra money into it, so not playing in the Limited or Sealed play. But the Standard play has been fun, and there is some perverse pleasure to be gained by beating a really tricked out deck w...

Ape Out

Got a new game that I've been enjoying in my (limited) spare time recently.

https://apeout.com/

It is very minimalist, and has an amazing jazzy soundtrack that really fits the game well and helps ramp up the tension as the game progresses.

I'm having fun with it.

Re: Episode 21.75: Farweald: New Dawn

And Bannock can totally embark on a Redemption Tour around town. Everyone certainly notices Bannock's presence and although they all seem initially wary, as the minutes pass with no death threats, people seem to relax and accept his help. :) While he is talking to folks in the town, both publicly a...

Re: Episode 21.5: Farweald Fallout ...

Regarding magical items: Bannock has the Flametongue to offer up as well if anyone is interested in that now that Bannock has the Answerer. Also, Bannock is interested in reading from the Manual of Gainful Exercise, and in the Bracers of wound closure, unless it is agreed that that would be a good i...

Re: Episode 21.75: Farweald: New Dawn

Bannock is also ok with looting anything of value from the Grandwood and ensuring that those in need in town have things they need. For example, if someone lost eating utensils in the fires, the dining rooms at the Grandwood certainly have a lot to spare, etc. For himself, Bannock no longer wants to...

The second issue comes up now. Julia Mathers, Pef's daughter, who ran Pef's Place (known early on as Pef's Lodge), approaches Bannock and Jareth. Julia is worried about the town's food supply. There was a modest grainery in town but it exploded in flames and burned to the ground, along with all of ...

Re: Episode 21.75: Farweald: New Dawn

The first issue that's come up is Constable Tierney had requested that the PCs investigate the Grandwood. You found a secret temple dedicated to fiend worship and a lot of treasure. What do you want to do about that? Bannock will suggest to the party that we divide up any magic items - these we jus...
