Dungeons and Dragons

Posted by campbell May 7th, 2012


You’re all going to be listening to the greatest Dungeons and Dragons game ever tonight, right? Check out the crazy action that happened last week, yea, it’s like Jersey Shore meets D&D over in our campaign. Note, that the sessions are pretty ridiculously offensive and stupid, so only listen if you have ears of steel.

Dungeons and Dragons

Posted by campbell September 10th, 2011

adventurers

Illustration update here.

As you may (or may not know) I play Dungeons and Dragons with a group of friends on Monday nights. We’re pretty late to the game really, we had a few goes of it in high school, but that was about it. We were doing a regular podcast of the episodes for a while, but conflicting schedules and “real life challenges” conspired to put an end to that. So rather than have irregular releases, we’ve been holding off to put together “seasons” of adventures, with breaks in between.

We’re currently playing the much criticised 4th edition, but not having played any other versions, we’re not really in a position to compare. It serves its purpose as a frame work to hang our stupidity and ridiculousness on, like an jade carved mannequin, or diamond encrusted coat hanger. The rules are loose, and fast, and I get the impression that there’s only one of us at the table who really understands them. (and that’s not me.)

For the first time ever, I’m giving you the opportunity to delve inside our magical den of mystery and see the inner workings of our games. We play around a white board table, where we render in game graphics on the fly. That’s right, this is no prerender stuff, hoodwinking you in to buying the finished game. THIS IS AS REAL AS IT GETS!

You can see a bunch of drawings I’ve done during our sessions right here. Please note however, that our games tend to get very racy and a lot of these illustrations are NSFW. If you’re at work, just wait until you get home to look at them, they’ll still be there. But I bet that you’ll be tempted by its scandalous content.

d&d: bugbear

bugbears
Bugbear illustration for our Dungeons and Dragons campaign. They’re like hairy goblins right? Which are like reptiles right? Right?
I don’t really get how all this stuff works. I might do an Owlbear next.

They’re all off! A great big stack of illustration portfolios sent out to my favorite publishers in Australia.
Many thanks to Liz for helping me put them together and getting them to the post office.

Now, we wait, with fingers crossed…

airship disaster

Posted by campbell November 17th, 2010


Tonight, more dungeoneering!
We last left our heroes battling a giant fanged platypus. Crabs stuck in the mud, Tiefling 3000 in belly of the beast, fighting his way out, Lamb drowning under the creatures crushing weight and Haroldo attempting to cast spells on it.

Above is an illustration of the airship crash that occurred last episode.

mongrel men

Posted by campbell November 3rd, 2010

This is an illustration I did a while ago but for some reason never got around to putting online. These are two characters that appeared in the Dungeons and Dragons campaign I wrote. They are mongrel men (well, one is a lady, “mongrel people” perhaps) who live in a caravan in the outskirts of Mont Azul. They herd away flocks of wild insects that threaten the local vineyards.

The mongrel men have been a particular favorite of my friends and I since we first flipped through an old monster manual. Awful, mutated bastard children of interbreeding races, they are like street dogs running around, hiding in the shadows and picking at scraps. In our mind, they always seem to have a lobster claw, tatty clothes and warty skin.

I can’t seem to find much reference to them on the internet, which is odd considering how awesome they are.

dungeons and dragons

Posted by campbell October 13th, 2010

Tonight there will be dungeons and there will be dragons and they will be coming straight at you through the powers of the internets! Above, an image to get you pumped, a scrappy map I drew for the adventure I dm’d for. Our “regular” fortnightly sessions became kind of monthy, kind of. But now it’s back! And back in a big way!

andre 3000 and haroldo

Posted by campbell September 9th, 2010


Here are the last two player characters from our Dungeons and Dragons game.

Andre 300/Mescaline Jam is played by James Mac. He’s a Tiefling bard whose signature vicious mockery spell has killed at least one orc, I think one. I could be wrong, maybe it was a little less than one. We currently require that James actually comes up with some rap taunt to use when casting. Maybe one day we’ll go through the audio archive and pull out all the golden samples.

Harry Eslick plays Haroldo, a human druid who was double crossed at the chapel and had his entire extended family slaughtered in the trap. He seems to be taking it all rather well though and is relaxing in a giant tree house somewhere right now. His signature move is the critical miss, which he has rolled on many a fine occasion.

Lady and Crabs

Posted by campbell August 2nd, 2010


These are two characters that feature in our regular (?) Dungeons and Dragons games. Lady Antoinette Estella Durack and Crabs Key Dinfer.

Lady Durack is played by James Pontifex and has been completely useless so far in this campaign (feel free to seek conformation from our recorded sessions). Her highlight so far has undoubtedly been extinguishing a camp fire with a water bladder attached to an arrow during a night time raid. The merit of this action was fiercely debated by the party for at least ten minutes before it was performed. She is sitting out the current adventure as James is now Dungeon mastering.

Crabs on the other hand is probably our most useful party member. Fred plays the character hard and fast and his understanding of the game rules (which everyone else sorely lacks) enables him to make some pretty crafty tactical decisions. The character is a halfling thief who, in his defining moment did a triple flip and chopped the head off a demonic overlord. He is currently battling a debilitating venereal disease.

Dungeons and Cats

Posted by campbell July 21st, 2010


When we get the chance, some of my friends and I play Dungeons and Dragons. Tonight we have the chance. We’re pretty loosey goosey with the rules and it’s all a bit ridiculous. My character is kind of like a cat person who is a protector of the forests, or something. Anyway, he’s awesome and cat like and spent the entire last adventure drugged, chained in a basement and used for food orgies.

Up until now I’ve been the dungeon master, so I haven’t had a chance to actually try out the character, so tonight’ll be a bit of a learning experience for me.
