Dooms Bay 4th Ed. D&D

virtualeon's picture

Starting a fast moving campaign heavy on action with (hopefully) a tight-woven story to keep things moving.  Expect to start on the edge of "civilization" such as it is, and explore the frontier with occasional opportunities to return to the "big city" as your adventures progress.  In theory, ten days travel covers the locally known cities and fortifications West to East, from Dooms Bay to Dvorkin's Reach--but these are dangerous times in dangerous lands, where savage creatures are eager to drive the "civilized" races back into the sea, while others wait on both sides to exploit all.

Preferably have a 1st level character ready to play 6pm - 10pm, Tuesday September 22nd.  The game will continue every two weeks.  Start and stop time will be flexible depending on group.

Generate ability scores as per standard array or point buy (PHB pgs. 17-18).

Select races from PHB and PHB2 (no Dragon Magazine, Eberron, Manual of the Planes, Monster Manual, etc...).

Select classes from PHB, PHB2, Arcane Powers, Divine Powers and Martial Powers (no Forgotten Realms).

Start with standard clothing and 100 GP to purchase equipment (PHB pg 210).

More HEX playtest opportunities!!

ReaperWolf's picture

Just gauging interest, when would be a good time to schedule another HEX playtest?

I'm toying with the idea of formally submitting my events for publication and another round of playtests is in order. For those who played Warmaidens, there are five other Burt Fedora adventures that need playtesting.

I'm thinking next week (evening), perhaps Monday night, would work. Alternatively the weekend?

Soliciting Feedback

GopherDave's picture

Hey Folks...

Dave here with a question. We here at 'Gopher are considering changing the hours of the store a bit and we wanted to get some input from you, our valued friends and customers.

Currently, the hours stand as such...

  • Mon - Fri: 5p - 11p
  • Sat: 10a - Midnight
  • Sun: Noon - 10p

What we are considering changing them to is...

  • Mon - Fri: 3p - 11p
  • Sat: 11a - 11p
  • Sun: Noon - 10p

The reasons for the potential changes are numerous, but it basically boils down to the new schedule fits my work and sleep schdule better. We're still debating the changes, but I figured I'd get some feedback from y'all, you being helpful folks and such. =)

Drop us a line here and let us know your thoughts.

Thanks much!

- Dave

AGG Annual Game Auction

GopherDave's picture

Hey Folks!

Today is the day for the Armored Gopher Games' annual game auction! This year's auction will be a live event, with your cool, used stuff being auctioned off by Dave (and some of the other 'Gopher regulars).

AGG will be taking in auction items during business hours from Monday, July 6th through Friday, July 10th. Each item or lot of items taken in for the auction must be accompanied by a filled out auction slip (see attached PDF) in order to be included in this event.

Items will be auctioned off in order of receipt. Any unsold items will be set aside until the end of the auction, at which point the items' owner will have the option of either taking back their unsold item(s), or selling them to Armored Gopher Games for the minimum bid in store credit. Armored Gopher Games reserves the right to refuse any item for any reason (condition, age, price, etc.).

Just like last year, buyers pay cash for items, and sellers receive the equivalent in store credit.

Last year's auction was a blast, and this one looks to be even better! So come join the fun!

THANK YOU!!!!!!!!!

loquacious's picture

There are not enough words to express the gratitude and appreciation we (Dave, Squirl and I) have for all of you.

We are expecially grateful to the awesome volunteers that came out Friday and helped us make the move as quick, easy, and painless as possible. The enthusiastic support from the folks we call a community- heck, our FAMILY- was unbelievable and we are grateful and humbled. 

We wanted to take a moment and publicly thank the following people for their invaluable help with the move:

Tim Geil, Joe Logue, Michael Logue, Brian Morris, Cookie Morris, AnnMarie Trumpinski, Brad Trumpinksi, Kevin Morris, Ted Brown, Dave Hahn, Ray Bott, Dennis Campbell, Stephen Woods, Neil Dillow, Tom Hodgson, Christy Steele, Jared Rascher, Francis (Jared's step-son), Hank Woolsey, Julie Woolsey, Luke Finley, and Tim Adams.

Also, special thanks to James Holzhauer for holding the first event at the new location and carrying on despite all the chaos around him, and to Chris Manrique for making the first purchase at the new store.
