The goblins are so funny! I think it’s ok if this chapter wasn’t “exciting” - still entertaining
Daxxers chapter 16 . 8/7/2020
enjoyed this. will be interested to hear the halfling's story!
kingpariah chapter 15 . 7/24/2020
(blinks) people might rant about DnD canon in a *fanfiction* story, and this is despite the fact that DnD itself tells DMs and players that their adventures are their own canon and dont have to follow *anything* thats pre-established in any of the settings! O_O XD wow. just wow.

(snickers) thats one way to ensure your clients stay sober. tavern owner: "if you cross the bridge drunk, you'll likely die!" XD

Shattered Spire. not a bad name.

(snickers) cheery by Underdark standards. Well its not wrong. XD

dang! that light curse is mean as hell.

if i were a better artist, i'd give drawing those symbols a shot.

ooh, story time.

(reads about vandria) paraphrasing odin in Thor 1 : "a king does not seek out war. but must always be ready for it."

wow. O_O quite the story.

gah! its the devil woman! literally!

poor rhianne though. (sigh) how annoying that the party's instinctive powers are light-producing.

looking forward to the next chapter. (smile)

Huh, new characters - they seem like nice people.
Daxxers chapter 15 . 7/24/2020
Good chapter. And nice to get to know the ladies a bit better. Never heard of darklings before. Quite the curse to carry.

How could those boots fit a derro AND a tabaxi AND an orc?
kingpariah chapter 14 . 7/14/2020
author writes *Dungeons* and dragons story. gets sick of *dungeon* crawling. XD (laughs in good humor)

(snickers at Sky's and Jhelnae's key banter) that's what happens when you go off on your own to get treasure, Sky. you get lockd out of the loop. :P

dang Sky got high sleight of hand skill. XD

Sky has a mushroom problem. XD

holy Sky! that sneak attack! O_O

cat in boots! i understood that reference!

duergar attak! O_O

(hums) telepathy is OP and I am now thinking of ways to exploit it either for or against my squad depending on whether I'm DM or player next time. XD

(exhales) phew! things really heated up in that encounter.

XD finally! been trying to read and review this all day but kept getting interrupted! (anime cries) XD

so the party will reach a "safe" point next to recharge?

looking forward to next chapter.
Daxxers chapter 14 . 7/13/2020
good chapter. the party seems to be working well together. liked the flumph.

looking forward to more.
kingpariah chapter 13 . 7/1/2020
(grins) now the party knows how Mario feels. XD then again, his mushrooms are more consumer friendly.

Huh. Kuhl was looking for Sarith's opinion? It really highlights the group's dynamic even if it hasn't exactly been acknowledged. :) (nods)

(snickers) interesting interaction with the flumph. good to see this party arent murder hoboes. (laughs)

(hums) seeing the flumph mind talk to translate Sky's hand signals - which are well done once context is learned - makes me think that the Message spell should be standard. XD

(snickers) the paladin has trouble being stealthy! i love it! XD

Ha! Kuhl agrees with me regarding the mind talk! as long as its a walkie-talkie type of mind link and not open book mind reading, then its good!

ha! even with the shield on his back, kuhl is still hard to hit. back shield represent!

yeah, paladin Kuhl! heal yourself! XD XP

way to go Stool!

(laughs) facing the big sis or mom of the group is always harder than facing a monster. at least with the monster you can kill it and be done with it.

I think you did well with the fighting. and the perspective awareness was well done. not all too different from some shows or from 1st person pov books where MC only glances at what others are doing while they do their own thing.

Lets hope Aleina takes it easy on Stool, even though hes now bigger than her maybe. not that it'd help. Aleina's scary. XD
Daxxers chapter 13 . 6/30/2020
very good fight scene. the reader gets a clear sense of Kuhl's skills, a bit of his personal history, and a look into his character. He dislikes killing but understands the need for it.

the action moved well. and some humour with the Myconid..
kingpariah chapter 12 . 6/17/2020
i love how you say that this was meant to a small thing that somehow the "players" turned into something bigger and shifted the timing/direction of the adventure. (hums) why does that sound familiar? (recalls how often it happens in my campaigns) XD

(snickers) stool's nod is full body. (laughs) XD

a party member only leaves when that person WANTS to leave, or when the party kicks them out. not when weird cultists abduct them. even if they are jerks. (nods)

huh. i guess fire doesnt solve everything. such a shame. (snickers)

(snickers) Sky is eager to eat magic mushrooms. since they make people grow or shrink, maybe theyre imported from the kingdom Mario is from. XD

"lets get this over with so i can start haunting you" ha!

a small-sized adult orc. the stuff of nightmares and shame for orc warriors. XP

(laughs at party fighting a centipede which now looks menacing with their shrunk selves)

so the problem was whether or not the party would eat the mushrooms? (hums) considering all the different perspectives, a quick agreement or denial would've been weird.

looking forward to next chapter
kingpariah chapter 11 . 6/14/2020
(sighs and rolls eyes at self deprecating A/N) i would advise against those kind of thoughts even in jest. they can have more impact than one might think at first. :)

theyre fighting zombies? or rather, undead?

(tilts head) was that really channel divinity that Kuhl used? thats a good narrative way to describe the effects and limits. :)

(laughs at Kuhl's informed "disarming smile" and at sky's maybe not quite as "disarming smile")

oh boy. sarith got taken.

(nods) even if the module does say the hand is elsewhere, theres no reason not to have them find it now. the module is an outline, not a script. it can be adapted as needed.

and considering most players go left when the module say go right? adaptation/improv is the lifeblood of a DM. or in this case, a fanfic author. XD

the adaptation/improv part is important.. :) after all, not all of my writing went the exact way as i first outlined it.
Daxxers chapter 12 . 6/14/2020
Very 'Alice in Wonderland'. Good chapter. Enjoying reading how Ront's pessimism contrasts with Sky's optimism.
Daxxers chapter 11 . 6/3/2020
"... and coalesced (in)to an undead nightmare."

"You cannot kill a god" Jimjar continued"... this should be Buppido?

Nice, creepy encounter.
