Recap: Silly Romperoo, Season 1 Episode 6

Sluggos to the north of me, slimeys
to the east, and here I am, 
The party fights slimes and weird things happen.


There are a lot more characters signed up, but these are the ones that were involved for the large part.
Provided portrait.


A Paladin of a death god. Fights with a flail and shield, and has decent armor.
An unusually youthful student of the Kabbalah, a fact hidden by his head of grey hair, Isaac Cordovero was amongst the most gifted students of the lot, displaying an affinity for the Sephirah Chokhmah to the extent of displaying talent even in the most hidden arts. However, his relative inexperience with life - not even forty years of age - had him passed over for the position of Rebbe at the Yeshiva and told to experience life to its fullest in order to gain a complete understanding of the nature of Ein Sof, as required of the greatest thaumatologists.
Brashly confident in his powers, Isaac chose to join an adventuring party, hoping to bring fame and glory to the Yeshiva and, above all, to the thaumatologist's art. He crawls dungeons, the loot secondary to his greater aspirations.

Provided character
A two handed swordsman. He is quick but frail, and eager to kill.


Covered in grey rags, only her face is left uncovered. The shadows accentuate her colorful eyes and if you look closely, maybe you can make out her brown hair which she keeps short.
Raised in a village near town she was a woman always prone to fight, preferring fist and her legs to words and diplomacy, but this was a little too unorthodox for her old-fashioned village. When she grew up, she was challenged to unarmed combat by the local captain of the guard and she lost. She had to leave home and her old life with it, but she is a strong-willed person. In her travels she found masters of combat, philosophy, and all other arts. She learned that being strong doesn't mean getting into fights with everyone. She struggled internally against the urge to give into raw anger, but years of training let her take control of it and she has since become an even more impressive martial artist. However, she still has a long road to the title of master. She will become the strongest and she will spread her knowledge and style in hopes of helping those who find themselves in the same atmosphere she endured growing up.
Uncredited and I can't find
a source.


A combination doctor and necromancer. He is haunted, for lack of a better word by his great grandfather, a ghost that is upset about the dwindling Dicus family tree. Derick is a talented doctor, naturalist, and magic user in his own right.


Derick and his entourage arrived from the South-west, and were easily able to open the door from the outside. The undead tried to defeat a fleeing orc who narrowly escapes before Derick and crew attempt to meet up with the party. The Orcs flee northwest. The party finds itself in dire straits as the slimes encroach on them. Lilli, Arron, and Alisa struggle to sort out light and swords until everyone is situated well. A giant slug starts rushing towards the party from the North, but fails to leap over a pit of sewage and critically fails a swim AND HT roll and becomes violently ill. This distracts some of the slimes acting solely on impulse who begin attacking and devouring the thrashing beast. Alisa desperately tries a shield rush at a slime, which critically fails, once again messing with the lighting situation as her light enchantment goes flying with it. Lilli struggling valiantly against fate, hold on to consciousness, flinging shuriken at the giant undead slime to the east, Isaac launches an area affect fire ball which is effective and hurts it significantly more than most blows. Arron decides to follow after Alisa attacking and nearly defeating the slime she attempted to shield rush, protecting her retreat to gather up her shield again. The erupting slimes, after spending several seconds sucking in air and aiming finally began attacking the party from all angles with acid shots, even as the session closes, Isaac is having a hole burnt into his shirt, Alisa has a hole melting in her armor, and Lilli who parried a shot has her arm bracings melting... incidentally they failed to hit Arron. At this point, Derrick and crew meets up with the party.

After Action Report

  • What Went Well
    • The players mostly showed up very close to on time.
  • What didn't go well
    • I was told I was going to fast for some parts so I slowed down, and also
    • I was told the game ran too slow, for that we devised two solutions:
      • For now, the zombie and skelly allies will behave as a swarm
      • All players have a one minute time limit to make a turn. If they fail to do anything for a minute, I get to choose what happens, which will likely be all-out defense, aim, or evaluate.
    • I forgot that jumping suffers from encumbrance penalties. There are a few situations where jumps should have been more difficult.
