    My fellow Tabletopping MadCasters, Front end, worst end: I cannot keep up my current pace with LD&D. I am becoming increasingly more irritable during sessions, it is becoming harder and harder to create content, and the daunting task of rewarding two dozen people's efforts and creativity is running me mentally ragged. I had hoped that we would run LD&D through this year, but I am not in a position where I can see that end out. On a personal level, my work schedule has become increasingly erratic and stressful due to the situation we all have to live with now regarding COVID and the professional and social consequences of such. My wife and I also work opposite schedules, and the only times I have to run LD&D are increasingly butting into the time I have to spend with her. On a community level, what began as a simple little experiment that I thought would struggle to reach double digit or so folks evolved quickly into a massive undertaking that I was not prepared for. I want to take this opportunity to thank Jiggles, Kal, Prince, Khaos, Voshay, and Starlight for stepping up to contribute to this undertaking, and I am confident we would not have had the months of entertainment we did without their efforts. They came into a situation that was not designed from the outset for a team to handle, and tolerated my combination of apathetic manager and frenzied artist long enough to deliver some tremendous sessions, and they have my heartfelt gratitude and thanks. To all the players of LD&D, you have my most sincere apologies for such an abrupt cancellation. For the participation, the effort, and the tolerance at moments that did not bring fun, you all have my appreciation. I am sorry that LD&D fell short of many of the wonderful long term ideas that all of you had for your characters and the story. I am heartened to see so many people forming groups of their own. It was my hope from the outset that LD&D would serve more as a catalyst than a long-lasting fixture of MadCast (thought not ending this early or in this manner). I have enjoyed being able to help those of you who have asked questions about your own games you are or would like to run, and would make myself available as a resource for anyone else who wants to go down that path. That leads me to the question of "What's next?" For LD&D: Some stories do well with no ending or resolution. I do not think tabletop ventures are members of that club. I would like to run a final session/guildhall where those who are interested can attend and we can discuss everything in my notes that has been hinted at but not revealed, discuss resolution to various characters and the story thus far, and act as rules referee if any individual characters or groups need to take it to The Anvil or Colosseum to hash out who is the biggest and baddest. This is something I would like to do for any who wish to attend. For my contribution to MadCast Tabletop: Once I've had a break from creating tabletop content for a couple weeks, what I do have the itch to do is assemble one group of 5-6 MadCasters at a time, run a short story of 4-6 sessions on a 1/week basis, then take a couple weeks off to create and do it again. One of the things absent from LD&D was a "Session Zero", where players and DM sit down and create characters together, going beyond the PCs and designing the vague outlines of the setting and plot. I would like to have that experience with many of you whom I've played with over the last half-year. For Tabletop @ MadCast: I don't know what it will look like, but I know it will be here. I look forward to sitting at a table with the community again. I look forward to new systems being brought to the community. I look forward to new players coming to the community. I look forward to, in the fullness of time, working with the team for the next large scale tabletop project that comes to MadCast, taking what we have learned through this experiment and trying it again-but-better. For any of you who are disappointed or angry at this announcement, I understand you and hear you. For people who are newer and have not had the chance to play much, I especially feel for you. For those of you who have put in the time to play or run LD&D, I thank you.

    Thanks, everyone. ❤️ Since I first started actively hanging around in MadCast things last fall pre- and then with the release of Shadowkeep I discovered that, while I was enjoying playing on my own, I was having more fun playing with other people. And also talking with other people. So I wanted to give a big thanks to those first few MadCasters I played Destiny with in my early lurking & candidate days, who I think were @MadCast: doublestufforeo, @MadCast: Stan, @MadCast: The Prince, @MadCast: RacerDelux, and @MadCast: FancyPants. You guys welcomed me, helped me out in raids and dungeons and with PvP when I was a massive noob, and I can never thank you enough. Also, because I'm multi-tasking today and keep missing things, big props to @MadCast: Khaos and @MadCast: Icarus. I don't know you two that well but I've seen your names around, running events and doing cool things. Keep being awesome guys.

    Hello friends! With the recent sale/people looking for a new game to play, a bunch of people have turned to Destiny 2. Which is great! But some people are just free to play right now, which is totally fine, it's a reasonable and legitimate option. There's so much you can do as a F2P D2 player, base game-wise and seasonal content-wise. So, if you want to check out the game and aren't sure about picking up the expansions or the season pass, here's a rundown of what's available for F2P players. You can also go here for a more detailed list. The Red War campaign from the base game Curse of Osiris campaign from the game's first expansion Warmind campaign from the game's second expansion Leviathan Raid from the base game Eater of Worlds Raid Lair from the game's first expansion Spire of Stars Raid Lair from the game's second expansion All year 1 Strikes All year 1 Nightfall Strikes The Reckoning from the year 2 Annual Pass Black Armory Forges from the year 2 Annual Pass Gambit from Destiny 2: Forsaken Gambit Prime from the year 2 Annual Pass The Menagerie from the year 2 Annual Pass Gambit & Crucible Private Matches Access to all PvP playlists Seasonal PvP updates All year 1 exotic weapons and armour Select year 2 exotic weapons (Thunderlord, Arbalest, Outbreak Perfected/the Zero Hour mission, and Bad Juju) Free roam access to all destinations If anything else gets added to this as new expansions come out, I'll be sure to update this list.

    Hey all! I have a couple server slots on a hosting site, and would be down to host some servers if people are interested. Games available: 7 Days to Die ($25.99) Zombie survival game with a looting system and RPG-like skill tree. Every 7 days a horde attacks the players, requiring a base to be constructed to deal with the increased difficulty. - https://store.steampowered.com/app/251570/7_Days_to_Die/ Minecraft (modded and otherwise) ($26.95) - 3-D Voxel world with no structured gameplay. A few world bosses as default, but a large and very active modding community for anything you could possible want. https://www.minecraft.net/en-us/store/minecraft-java-edition Terraria ($9.99) - 2-D voxel world with a massive quantity of items, bosses and ways to play. There are several game tiers, and an major update planned for the next few months! https://store.steampowered.com/app/105600/Terraria/ Personally, I would love to pick up either a hardcore vanilla server, or a community modded server! I actually have a realistic generation mod for 1.15 (Pictures Included) if we want to use that as well for a vanilla server, to make it a bit more interesting. If we want a modded Minecraft server I am down for pack suggestions, but here are some I am currently interested in; Valhelsia 2 (1.15) - A Kitchen sink pack for the most recent version of Minecraft. https://www.curseforge.com/minecraft/modpacks/valhelsia-2 RLCraft (1.12) - A modpack made for those who want a challenge. Mods are used to make a "realistic" progression with survival, RPG and adventure elements. https://www.curseforge.com/minecraft/modpacks/rlcraft SkyFactory 4 (1.12) - A Skyblock modpack with quests and a challenge system! (For simplicity, I would try to limit this to 4 people per world, but I can put up a few of these servers due to the nature of the pack) https://www.curseforge.com/minecraft/modpacks/skyfactory-4 If any of these already exist let me know! (I did a quick forum search for each, but didn't find anything current). I am new to the community, so I'm unaware if this was the right way to go about it, but please, if you are interested reply to this post or DM me either here or on Discord! -Draconum Domini

    Here's a list of websites, apps, or content creators new players might want to check out. Destiny Item Manager, or DIM. If you need to move something out of your vault and into your character inventory, or vice versa, or want to move a high light level weapon over to a new character to help level up faster, you can use this instead of travelling to the Tower every time. It'll also show you progress on quests, what daily bounties each vendor/NPC has, things like that. Braytech.org is similar, it's a good way to keep track of triumphs and collections. It's got maps with icons laid out for Adventures, Lost Sectors, and hidden secret things. It'll tell you what's going down that week, what the strike elemental burn is and which Nightfalls are available to run, which bosses are up for Menagerie and higher tier Reckoning. Light.gg is good for looking up stat rolls for weapons, like community-preferred stat rolls, which perks are good for PvE content or PvP content. The Destiny 2 Companion app (on whichever app store your phone has), it mostly works how DIM works in that you can move items from your vault to your character inventory. The Destiny 2 subreddit and the Raid Secrets subreddit. Lots of Reddit ridiculousness, memes, some helpful charts and things. Raid Secrets will be full of speculation and theories and spoilers, both might have spoilers to be fair, so be warned if you don't want spoilers. I'll add to this as I find more websites and resources.

    The War Journal

    War Journal 5/10 Aery, Tee, Ogma, Mara and Velavara take down the Hunter Killers. Intel at the gate Mado Curas spoke with a refuge leader entering the gates they told from goblins with wolves, elephant sounds. Intel in the high runes Old Vaskos he and his men told us mammoths are smashing down cities. Group departed to the north at a fast pace with plans to venture to the last known place of the mammoth. Ran into Rongsticka, a gobo captain, and a few hobgoblins. The group snuck up on them and quickly took out all but Rongsticka, who... dimension doored? out 500+ feet to the north. We kept the captain and delivered him to Twinroot for imprisonment. Stayed the night at Twinroot. Lieutenant Barnabas told us stories of Longshot- aka one boob, is killing guys left and right. Her forces come, usually from the north. Group decided to hide and ambush the seigers. As planned, we managed to ambush the group marching toward Twinroot. Our sneak round took out 8/10 hobgoblins. Longshot sat astride a 25 foot mammoth. Buuuuut apparently mammoths are afraid of dwarves. Ogma could not be trampled and managed to grappling hook on top of the mammoth and kick Longshot off. She attempted to escape or get advantage with distance but our range beat her’s, a couple of eldritch blasts later she was down. On the other side of the battle, Tee and Aery took out Rongsticka. Ogma struggled to control the mammoth and instead blinded the beast.

    Normally, the onset of full autumn means the surge of the harvest coming into Mado Curas. Laden with all the possibility, prosperity, and revelry that mark the winding down of the growing season, Mado Curas in normal times makes New Orleans look like a welsh village on a Sunday. Now, carts laden with produce and herds of livestock have been replaced with mobs of fleeing refugees and carts laden with the elderly and children. Along with Interlopers Incorporated's Notice of Conscription comes a dire report. Legions numbering in the tens of thousands are storming down the mountains marking the border between Imperial Lands and the Goblinoids to the north. The greatest mass of these forces is marching on a direct route to the capital, pillaging autumn harvests and taking entire villages captive. On either flank, smaller armies are moving swiftly to capture both territory and people. In the Curas region, two armies are advancing. A force of 15,000 heavy infantry is marching slowly south, holding the main road and fortifying captured villages. Further east, a smaller army of irregulars is moving swiftly through the woods, capturing isolated hamlets and raiding from the forests. With full reinforcement delayed by the threat to the capital, and the bulk of the Imperial Army bogged in a war of expansion far to the south, the Governor has been ordered to conscript all able bodied men and women and defend the region. Veteran Campaigner Erasmus Nox has been designated as the Regional Commander, and has designated Interlopers Inc. as a semi-autonomous regiment. With reinforcements a month or more away, the situation is dire. For my next few months of sessions, we will be playing out an overarching war scenario. Unlike my previous sessions, where each bundle of content was run several times, each session will build upon the other as each group ventures out. This will be represented by several new mechanics. Time and Continuity Many of you have come up with a variety of creative ideas for downtime, and have sat on them for quite some time. In recognition of that, Each player may "spend" a month of accrued downtime. Those of you who have not thought of what to do for your downtime, please get with me or Jiggles to explore your options. Beginning Sunday the 10th, we will begin tracking time in two week chunks. Each two week period IRL will translate to two weeks in game. During that time, each player will be able to attend TWO sessions and spend ONE WEEK of downtime. Should such an circumstance occur where a player has the opportunity to play a third or fourth session, they may spend 3 days and then the final four days of their downtime to do so. Those who are unable to make two sessions in a two week period will be given XP/Loot rewards commensurate with the overall progress the entire group has achieved. As each session takes place, subsequent groups will be able to see on a hexed rendition of the regional map the progress of previous groups. We will begin with a small amount of intelligence on the immediate area, with only vague ideas of enemy positions and forces further from the city/HQ. As each group explores and acts, the situation will shift. As time passes, enemies may move, reinforce, fortify, offer terms, surrender, or take other appropriate actions. Beyond the vague breakup of time into these two week chunks, we will still treat time as our servant and not our master. Tracking this passage of time is not meant to hamstring anyone's creativity or limit play in any way. It is meant to give us some additional markers to enable a fair adjudication of downtime for all players, and to provide bounds for some of the new mechanics that this chapter will bring. The War Journal Each session there will be an opportunity for a significant XP reward for a volunteer to document the session and post it to a War Journal thread. This should be a factual representation of the session's activities, but beyond that can be tailored to the player's own style and character. If no player in a session wishes to take this role, I will do so. Morale To represent the impact of Interlopers Inc on the war effort, I will be maintaining a morale meter. This meter will begin at 50, and will rise and fall as the story and play unfold. The meter will cap at 100 and floor at 1. Morale can be positively impacted by: retaking territory, eliminated key personnel, providing entertainment or aid to the rank and file, or other, similar methods. Morale will be negatively impacted by PC death OR incapacitation, various enemy actions, players or NPC forces being forced to retreat, or similar circumstances. A morale check will be performed once every two weeks for the overall war effort, and as the situation demands within each session depending on what individual parties get up to. A morale check will be performed by rolling a d100, with any result lower or equal to the current Morale rating counting as a success. In game, this will translate into a positive outcome for whatever daring plan a given party comes up with (or a negative one if it fails). For the campaign as a whole, read on. Enemy Moves and Bi-Weekly Effects Every other Sunday beginning with the 10th I will move forces on the map and introduce new circumstances that will affect the next two week's sessions. The initial circumstance we will begin with is "Blitzkrieg". Representing the practiced efficiency and odious amount of planning that went into this invasion, this will practically translate into the DM having a number of "disadvantages" equal to the number of players that can be handed out before a player makes any D20 roll. For all subsequent weeks, the nature of the event will be determined by a Morale check. On a failure, I will design a "debuff" similar to the above that will be themed appropriate with the results of the past two weeks' sessions. On a success, a "buff" will be put in place for the next two week cycle. These effects will always have a narrative framing and a practical, mechanics based impact on the following sessions. Difficulty and What to Expect Fickle dice aside, most of our sessions have not carried with them lethal consequence. Let me say it right now, Retreat is an option. Success in these sessions is not going to come easy, and it might require multiple sessions/groups to accomplish major objectives. To illustrate, let's take a straightforward situation like an enemy fort or camp. If a previous party, through whatever means, gains knowledge of the layout, the foes within, friendlies within, or what have you, that information will be available to all subsequent groups. As I said above, I will resolve enemy reinforcements and movements every two weeks IRL, meaning that the population of a given target will not significantly change until the next two week cycle begins. In that timeframe, other groups could attempt the same obstacle with the progress of the previous group virtually unchanged. As we progress through this chapter, please do not view failure or setback as a negative. Difficulty, sacrifice, and failure are important foils to victory and growth, and the stories we are participating in together deserve to be interesting. Dark moments give way to heroics and truly awesome memories. It has been an abject pleasure to expand LD&D out from a simple conceit for a group of us to run dungeon crawls with a rotating cast into a full blown narrative being contributed to by over two dozen people. If I or We need to change any of the above as we proceed forward, we will do so. As we discussed at our Guildhall, we are here to be entertained and create as a community, not be slavish to rules. My first session of Chapter 2 will begin on Sunday the 10th at 10PM. All of these sessions are open to any who wish to attend. See you then!

    Thanks Kitty and I will definitely let someone know. Ikoro is a very young young world and still brimming with natural life. There parts of the world that have been undiscovered or explored. The Northern continents is very much like warren kingdoms and very much a melting pot for many races. As they consistently be fight over land and other rights cause there hasn't been anyone to rule over them since an assassination took place to out the person and his court in power. The central continent is heavily influence by elven culture from the massive cathedrals that seem to layered itself down a massive cliff side yet still seamlessly still flow gracefully with the nature around by you different metal filigree to help keep the flow. The dwarves are also here as well but haven't been seen or let alone heard from in ages. The south is unexplored due to dangerous sea monster that seem to stop most travel in that direction. The story always changes from leviathan to sirens, and even gods themselves tell them to turn around. To the West is quiet baren and the few people that live there are nomadic tribes of sort that live where they find oasis as they travel. Notably the tribe that stands out is the forged salamanders which is a very warrior concentric tribe of dragonborns . To east the mountainous area of the Icy Bellows which are massive mountains that almost seem to touch space itself. As for whats up there not much knows. There are also several island about that maybe one or two people have explored or seen. Small town feel free to add as your leisure if you need more information bout a place go ahead and ask.

    I just wanted to let you guys know that I have gone through the Signup Master threads and hid all the posts that do not pertain to the current session being run. So, DMs, don't be surprised if you see nothing in your signup threads (other than Munsa and Prince as they can still see hidden posts). I did this in an attempt to help the DMs find and update their threads quicker. It should eliminate the need for digging through multiple pages to find signups for the current session.

    Thursday, April 30th at 7pm est. I will be streaming a concert featuring the works of Russian Composers on discord. The concert will last approx. 1 hour and 30 minutes. The concert will start off with the Tchaikovsky Violin Concerto. Here are some excellent concert notes about the piece. [Link] Next up, the powerful Shostakovich Symphony no. 5. In 1936, Shostakovich’s popular modernist opera Lady Macbeth of the Mtsensk District was denounced by the Soviet authorities. This Symphony, originally called “A Soviet artist’s reply to just criticism,” brought him back into the good graces of the Soviet authorities. The Fifth epitomizes the drama, wit and darkness that’s characteristic of the Shostakovich sound. The music is lean and taut, particularly in the gut-wrenching third movement, the soul of the work. Scholars still can’t agree whether the upbeat finale is a Stalinist victory hymn or a parody of one. Hope to see you there. The concert will last approx. 1 hour and 30 minutes.

    As another cycle comes to a close, the admin team would like to take the time to recognize and appreciate the efforts of all of our RFMs for the voluntary work that they do to keep MadCast running. We've welcomed a lot of new faces in the past cycle, and one of them really stood out to the SFMs as someone who is an exemplary part of our community. MadCast: Cloud is being awarded ORFM for Cycle XXXV. Her consistent efforts to get League of Legends Mafia up and running again has brought a beloved game mode and recurring event back to the MadCast community. Cloud has a cheerful and generous personality that has become central to the continued success of Mafia due to the amount of returning players. She has worked a lot of extra hours to refine the Mafia event, and brings her fellow RFMs together to ensure that the final result is a fun and reliable game. Outside of Mafia, Cloud has also been a frequent player in Don't Starve Together, Wolcen, and Halo, where she easily pulls in full lobbies with her friendly but competitive attitude. Congratulations and thank you to @MadCast: Cloud!

    Take everything I say here with a bit of salt, as my grandfather has been dealing with Type 2 and heart disease for many years now and I've learned some of his habits but do not deal with the condition personally and am not well-read on the details. I also personally suffer from low-sugar dips and have had to adapt to always having something on hand that's a "fast carb", such as a cereal bar or a bag of trail mix. If you worry about things expiring but want to be prepared, there are slow and fast-release glucose tablets available but they resemble giant tums in taste and texture. Bananas are good at steadily releasing sugars and will prevent you from having severe spikes and dips throughout the day. My grandfather is fond of soaking raisins in whiskey for a few weeks and then having a few each day as a snack, and claims it also helps his sugar stay at a steady level. Avoid breads and grains as much as possible, especially toasted as it is digested very quickly. Drinking a lot of water can help your body process the high sugar faster, but that doesn't work for everyone. As far as being sick, there are diabetic-friendly medications that you should try to get, especially for things like cold medicine that tends to have flavors or sugar added to it. Best of luck managing the lifestyle changes, and I will ask my grandfather if he has any other pertinent tips to share.

    Are you curious about all of the tabletop talk happening around MadCast? Are you also a little overwhelmed or intimidated at the thought of getting started? During this Introduction to DnD in Roll20, I'll walk you through the most important numbers on a character sheet, and explain what they mean. I'll explain what some of the mysterious abbreviations like "DC" or "AC" or "2d20" mean, and I'll show you how to use the Roll20 DnD interface to do stuff like use a spell, roll a dice, or attack! Then we will go on a short adventure and practice all of the things we've learned. This will be a very short event following Townhall on Monday, June 1. It should take no longer than 2 hours, though people may want to hang around and talk about the adventure or ask questions afterwards. ---------------------------------------- What do I need to do to prepare for this event? Make a free Roll20 Account. That's it! Will there be followup sessions? This event is designed to be self-contained and focused on demystify DnD and Roll20 for you. You are not signing up for this with the expectation of attending any future events or using these characters again. How much will this cover? Just the basics- I've stripped away some aspects such as character backgrounds, and limited some choices (like which spells to take), so that new players won't feel overwhelmed. If you enjoy this and want to play more, you'll have experienced all of the core concepts, but you'll still have a lot more to discover. Do I have to role play? Role playing just means making decisions about what to do. It does not have to include talking in first person or using an accent, thought that can be fun. If you are describing what your character does, you are role playing. And you do have to describe what your character does. So yes. You have to role play. I still feel awkward about role playing... Here's what role playing looks like. I say: "You see a kitten stuck in the tree next to the path you are walking down. A little girl is crying and trying to get the kitten to come down. What do you do?" and you say: "My cleric wants to go help get the kitten down." Then I say: "Okay, how do you want to help get the kitten down?" and you say: "By climbing the tree and carrying the kitten down." or "By climbing on the ranger's shoulders to reach the kitten." That's role playing! It's not going to be awkward unless you role play being awkward. How do I sign up? If you want to reserve a spot, sign up in this thread (if you are an experienced player, mark that, and I will count you as a provisional sign up). Otherwise, it will be first come, first serve with newbie priority following Townhall. I will cap this at 5 players, though anyone else is welcome to silently spectate. Priority: Newbies who signed up in the thread Newbies who join after Townhall, in first-come first-serve order Experienced players who signed up in the thread Experienced players who join after Townhall, in first-come first-serve order Can I join even if I'm not a newbie? Yes, but I'll give priority to people who are new to DnD and/or haven't used Roll20 before. Understand that you are not the target audience for this event, and I have a few expectations for you: Do not jump in to explain something without being called on, and be respectful if I ask you not to get too deep into a concept that won't be relevant for the evening. It's not fun to be overwhelmed, and we want to make sure new players can master the basics before they do a deep dive on anything else. Do not criticize new player decisions or back-seat game. If new players want to phone-a-friend and ask for input, that's fine, but if you keep jumping in to tell someone what they should do without being asked, I will ask you to leave the event. You'll have to use one of the pre-made characters, and I'll ask you to choose from what's left after our new players choose what sounds fun to them. Afterwards, we'll open things up for talking and informal Q&A, and you can share away. Attendee Signup: MadCast: Sotarkadin

    Upon learning of a dastardly plot by minions of the Cinder King to abduct general Erasmus Nox, the brave adventurers of Interlopers Inc. sprang into action. The team of Ogma, Mara, Elio, and Vailii placed themselves in harms way between the evil undead abductors and the good general Nox. A dark ritual being performed by individuals under the influence of magical charms, but Interlopers Inc. stopped the ritual and saved the "hexed". The hexed individuals are being treated and reeducated in an undisclosed location away from the front. Sources close to Interlopers Inc. stat that the "hexed" will be released once the magical effects are completely cured. Every citizen must do their part to drive back the Stratocracy and the Cinder King. Would you like to know more?

    Here are the final images of the Dice Tray. I put the velvet lining in and I took a couple pictures with my dice collection as well.

    Last week of Mafia for April. We had 5 weeks so points are as high and close as ever. Come fight for the wonderful prizes like: the skin I always forget to give out, SICK bragging rights and even a discord role (if you've got that Madcast tag). If you do not know how to play and are interested in Mafia, per usual hit me up. Big shout out and thank you to Qrow for hosting last week and for everyone who turned out.

Admins will be available to answer questions and concerns that you all may have as well as give you all an opportunity to speak about things you all would like to bring to the community as well. I look forward to seeing y'all there!

    Books? Books!

    At the moment, I am reading Das Kapital, Moscow 2042, Caoir Gheal Leumraich (a collection of poetry by Somhairle MacGill-Eain), and Rousseau and Revolution by Will and Ariel Durant. As to favourite books? that is a list to long to go into here.

    We do have this thread already, for reference! I wish I took the time to read as much as I used to, but some books that I loved reading when I was younger were the Pendragon series and anything by Cornelia Funke. I'm a sucker for thoroughly-described fantasy worlds.
