First, my birthday party was last weekend, so there was more alcohol consumed then normal.
Second, Dungeonslayers is a great system with some entertaining translations. ("Is your character a tough hunk who can cope with a lot of damage?")
Third, the introductory adventure is terrible. You kill rats in a basement with no traps, and little treasure. It's possible to build characters so that the starting monsters pose almost no threat to the players, and there are no twists, nor any plot hooks for further adventures. On the plus side, it does hit the cliche of killing rats. And it isn't strictly linear.
Instead of a step by step recap, I'll post pictures with the things that were said before they were taken.
|Roll a die and see if you get a one|
(There was nothing in the barrel)
|You are welcome|
As an aside, that room to the back there is coated in spiderwebs. Our intrepid dwarf fighter headed right in after the fight and cleared out the spiderwebs by setting fire to the room while he was in it.
Dwarves. Always good for a laugh.
|They're fsking rats!|
Hence the quote, they're fsking rats!
|They don't put minotaurs in first level dungeons|
Here we have our adventurer's in a hallway discussing the room beyond. Could there be a minotaur in it?
Don't be silly, they don't put minotaurs in first level dungeons.
Note to self: Steal wandering monsters list from the Alexandrian.
|The rat rubs against you.|
They put on the black cultist robes that they found. Clearly not the brightest move. On the plus side, it did make the rats friendly.
Upon entering this chamber, these rats came out to greet the armored dwarf. They do like any friendly animal would do.
Me: The rat comes out and rubs up against you.
Player: That's fsking gross and I pin it to the ground with my spear.
Se La Vi. *Shrug*
|You do understand that a boner |
does not involve a bone
Sure enough, someone seconds later says, "You do understand that a boner does not actually involve a bone."
|I mispronounced cistern as dragon.|
Me:"Ahead of you in the room, you see a Giant Dragon. Oh, wait, I mean cistern. There is a cistern in this room."
Me:"I mispronounced cistern as dragon. Sorry."
Everytime I rolled to hit, I'm fairly certain I said, "Bulls**t, and fsk you" though I was a bit tipsy by that time of night.
The system is a lot of fun, I think it requires a bit of tweaking, but overall is fairly excellent.
