As always, Gencon was AWESOME. I've never had a bad Gencon, and I've been going for 9 years.
This year was all about Fourthcore gaming. For some of the games (SND01 and C1), I had a laptop showing the imagery that's been shown on this blog. I got lots of great compliments on the images, and in each of the games, the players seemed to be enjoying themselves immensely.
Let's get to the scoring!
SND01: Revenge of the Iron Lich
Crusaders ran out of time while battling in the final chamber. Two deaths (one w/resurrection). Final score = 365 (Adventurers). This game always does well, and the players ate up the puzzles. It was a great first game of the con.
M1: Gallery of the Hate Blossom
No scoring in this one, and no deaths. The ending was fantastic, and I won't spoil it for others, but @nai_calus thought outside the box and found the combat out... turning it into a very RP memorable moment!
C1: Crucible of the Gods
Finally, a group that rocked the game. They lit the divine brazier and saved the world, with 36 minutes to spare. Three skulls, ZERO DEATHS. I tried my best, but they bested the module fair-and-square. MVP of that game goes to @nai_calus, hands down! Score = 485 (Exarchs)
C1: Crucible of the Gods (pick up game)
I should have run my All But Shipwrecked game, but only 2 players showed. ABS does not work with 2 players. We tried to round up some players, no luck. I thought to run C1 again, but lacked the pregens (they were taken/tossed from the last game). So, salvaging it, I had them run 2 fourth level crusaders through instead. Trust me, they died not from numbers, but from choices. Six deaths before time limit. Two skulls. Score = -165 (Humiliation)
SND02: Fane of the Heresiarch
I can't wait to explore more of this game, there's so much going on. One death. No planets. Time limit reached in the Mother's Cloister. Score = 60 (Parishioners)
Vault of the Wyrm Prince
Considering this is not out yet for public consumption, I won't say much except that it was AWESOME. Look for it soon at dungeonoracle.com!
