hrm.... Struggling to figure out how to change the character associated with the account, since only a couple of people ever met Kara. But this is Red / Spellfury.

*wave* I realize I kind of vanished a year ago and it's likely no one really remembers any more, but I actually have a bit of time for gaming again and figured I would see what people are up to?

Hello Everyone.

The Thelanis Fall Fesitval is tomorrow night (nov 8th) at 9pm EST in Zawabi's refuge.  One of the things going on in the event will be the dice game, DragonSlayer (or Demon Queen Slayer if you prefer).  I demonstrated the games to a number of people who are now equipped with prizes and will be running the dice games.. Myself, Valianna, Tyrynyn, Lessah and Braeden.

I am posting the rules on how to run Dragonslayer for those people running the dice games as well as putting it out there for people who may want to use this game in roleplaying at some other time.  For the event it will offer a way to have fun, engage with fesitval attendees, introduce some light hearted roleplaying and give out some fun prizes     I got this idea from a post i saw on dice games in pen and paper d&d campaigns (for when your party is bored and hanging out in a tavern) and decided to modify it to be usefull in DDO and for this event.


*note.. have a piece of paper to track round scores*

Form a group of around 6 people and roleplay a scenario:
for example *your group round the corner and has come face to face with a giant red dragon guarding a chest.  The dragon growls menacingly as he turns to face you*

Dragon Slayer is played with three 6-sided dice. To Have the people roll dice in game on ddo they type /roll 1d6

All players first /roll 1d6.  Note player rolls to keep track of player order in rounds.

Theplayer with the highest roll then /roll 2d2.   This will determine this number of rounds (minium of 2 and maximum of 4) it will take to slay the dragon.

The player with highest roll will start the round.  Players then take turns depending upon their order that was set in original die roll.

Now this is where you can introduce some roleplaying.  For example.. *Player 1, the dragon focuses its angry glare on you.  Tell me what you are going to do and then roll a 1d6 three times in a row.*

Startingwith the player who set the number of rounds, each player in turn /roll 1d6 three times in sucession.  A double matching number counts as a successful attack on the dragon and that player is also awarded a point.  A triple matching number counts as a successful critical attack on the dragon and is awarded two points.  No matching numbers counts as a miss and is awarded NO points.

For example...player 1 says I run at the dragon with my greatsword!  He rolls a 1d6 three times and the result is: 2, 3, 2.  You can then roleplay the result!  *The dragon bellows in rage as Player1's  greatsword bites deep into its flank, spewing acidic blood in a deadly spray!*  Player 1 earns one point!  (you can also roleplay a miss.. say player 2 rolls a 3, 4, 5 and runs at the dragon with his sword as well.  You can roleplay.. *player two runs at the dragon and doesn't notice the log across his path!  He trips and falls on the ground, his sword skittering out of his grasp*  .. Use your imagination!  *wink*

Next players... turn..  etc.   You progress through all the players.  Once all the players are done with their prospective turns it is the end of the round.

At the end of the total number of rounds, the player with the most points succeeds in slaying the dragon and claims the Dragon's Hoard.  If there is a tie you can have the players vie off for a chance at claiming the killing blow.

for example:  Player 1 and Player 2 run toward the weakened beast, each one vying to claim its life. (Have them /roll a 1d100.   use the dice roll to describe the result of their attack .. )

the dragonslayer receives a nifty prize!

I've made up a little Excel spreadsheet to keep scores on (I know, I really need to get a life... ).  If anyone wants a copy, send me your email address and I'll send it over...
