    Adrel, It is with deep excitement and affection that I entrust a new chapter of my storied life to your eager pages. The recent setback in regards to the Antiquities Emporium was but a momentary mirage on the continuum of my joyous life. I have taken up a new pastime- I am an adventurer! Yes, despite my lack of prior experience, it appears I am practically an adventuring savant. No doubt you are unsurprised, but I must say it was rather more pleasant than I imagined, based on histories I have read. Perhaps I am simply better at it than most. At any rate, I inquired with a local nobleman who has garnered a reputation as a patron of adventurers. Naturally, he immediately recognized my innate talent and assigned me a retinue of well-intentioned commoners to assist me on a noble quest to rid a local village of a monstrous spider. One of them is a bard, a shrewd move by this noble benefactor no doubt, as many will pay to hear songs of my feats. The poor commonfolk there were terrified out of their minds, as the foul beast had slain several of their companions and any number of livestock. They were so relieved to see me that they plied me and my retinue with drink and food. The local mayor also recognized my noble heritage amongst the pedestrian countenances of the adventurers sent to accompany me, and spoke freely of his fears. That evening, we spent the night camping on a local farm that had fallen victim to the beast's raids on a few occasions. Indeed, the beast arrived to snatch another happless cow, but was frightened off at the sight of me. My retinue was afraid to press on in the dark, which is natural for commoners such as them. The bedroll provided to me was extraordinarily uncomfortable for a culutred individual like myself, and alas, I have never had the occasion to learn a spell for such circumstances. I shall make it an immediate priority to research one. Nonetheless, my bravery prevailed against the hardship, and the night passed without further event. The following morning, I traveled through a forest for some time, before encountering a clearing of strange fungi. One of my men retrieved a chest therein, and I availed myself of a pair of pristine boots. In my generosity, I shared the rest of the contents with my retinue, as I have read this is an excellent leadership tactic. Though weary, I led my party onward, deeper into the ancient forest. We heard a frightful racket and came across gruesome battlescene- for the beast had slain a band of happless goblins. The beast thought to spring on us unaware, but I spotted it and led a fearless assault against the spider. It soon fled in terror, greatly weakened by our brave efforts. Though my retinue was frightened, I inspired them on, until we reached the spider's lair. Any ordinary elf would have fled at the sight, but I tell you Adrel- I was invigorated! I made short work of the beast, which turned out to be no beast at all, but an unfortunate druid that succumbed to the base instincts of its shapeshifted form. I desired to take her under my tutelage, as it were, as I am sorely in need of an assistant. However, my retinue believed it best to dispatch her immediately, as she had already done great harm. I allowed the popular sentiment to prevail- another excellent leadership strategy. I will have to find an assistant elsewhere, I suppose. Quest complete, I led my men and lady bard from the forest to claim our reward. I confess, it was much easier than anticipated, and everyone thinks me a great hero. I suffered not a single scratch, however, as news of my heroics spread, I suspect I will be beseiged with requests to lead more dangerous adventures. With this in mind, I commissioned the artificer in my band, Drax I, to forge me a custom weapon, and visited the Osmund family library to research spells that may be of use to me in the future. Alas, the quest for more comfortable bedding continues, but I did encounter a thorough description of the mechanisms of a spell to procure magical armor. I will continue my research as my social calendar allows. Already the local noble ladies are clamoring for me to recount my harrowing adventure. Hubert IV of House Starfall

    @MadCast: The Prince and @MadCast: RedJustice graced my presence with a one shot in earl December which I think went well and may have helped to push Red towards DM'ing herself (oh god what have I helped to unleash?). So to the one shot, please confirm your interest in the thread below and indicate what day of the week is a dealbreaker for you and what day(s) are ideal. I am West Coast so will ensure a week night start of 630pmPT/930pmET though I can adjust this as needed. If at the weekend I can be more flexible with timing. I will provide either pre-gen characters or assistance with character creation. I will also provide a PDF of the rules. This PDF has been provided to me by the Devs for the purpose of running one shots, cos they are lovely people. I am away in the UK until the 22nd January from next Tuesday (7th Jan) and will look to run this in the final week or weekend of January. Happy for candidates to join and if we don't have sufficient interest I will consider inviting non-MC. @MadCast: QuantaMentat @MadCast: doublestufforeo @MadCast: Kitty Stark @MadCast: Wazap Cheers!

    MadCast Angel - 2019

    This year's MadCast Angel will be one like no other before it. For those that are new to MadCast, please take a moment and check out the awesome display of kindness and generosity this community has shown over the years: 2018 2017 2016 2015 2014 2013 2010 Over the past few years I have been more involved with a variety of charities, which has provided a deeper insight into the needs of our community. This year we are going to sponsor a child who is under the care of CASA (Court Appointed Special Advocates). CASA provides care for children that have been removed from their homes due to abuse or neglect. These children often do not have a supportive family (if they have family at all) and are often times placed in foster care or group homes. CASA appoints an advocate for the child to ensure their basic needs are met and to assist in allowing children to have as "normal" of a childhood as possible. CASA is a national organization, and while I work with a few different chapters, I have selected CASA Kendall County for this years drive specifically. Now that you know about the charity, let me fill you in on some details about our angel. She is a 16 year old girl who has been in the system since she was 7, and will continue to be in the system until she ages out at 21. She has no family at all and her gifts and necessities are entirely funded by what CASA collects for her. She does not have many possessions and CASA always tries to do a little extra for her during Christmas. She is the most "expensive" child to sponsor and as a result did not have any takers. Until now. We've done some amazing things over the years and I'm confident we have what it takes to provide this child with a memorable Christmas. The List Chromebook & accessories (carrying case, mouse, etc) for school. Wireless Ear-pods Giftcards (she likes to shop at Claire's & Khol's, and has a Panera near her school she sometimes eats at) Let's show her what it means to be taken under MadCast's wing. I think we can provide this girl with all she's asked for and more. This year I am going to spice things up. I will match dollar-for-dollar every donation (up to $1000) in the form of a check written directly to CASA Kendall County from my foundation. Every dollar you donate will equal two dollars. This is something we've never done before, and I'm really excited to have the opportunity to amplify this years MadCast Angel. To contribute, simply go to https://www.paypal.me/scooba6369. All contributions are welcome and no contribution is too small. We understand that not everyone cannot afford to contribute a monetary value. You can still support the cause by spreading the word so as many people know about this as possible. I will be shopping on December 10th, so we have a little over a week to raise funds. Please do not post stating you are unable to contribute. Keep all posts on-topic and productive. If this is your first year participating in the drive you will receive a MadCast Angel badge upon completion. This thread will be updated regularly to reflect the contributions received. Donation Total: $1,018.93 Contributors Mallory Lelah (non MadCast affiliate) Amanda Lembke (non MadCast affiliate) Kal MadCast: Cloud MadCast: AngelOfDeath Kari Pedersen (non MadCast affiliate) MadCast: Disma Stephen Walden MadCast: Red Justice MadCast: majorhoward Robert Bjork MadCast: Usefully Useless Miranda Kremer (non MadCast affiliate) Josh Snyder MadCast: Suixide22 MadCast: QuantaMentat MadCast: Kitty Stark MadCast: SleepComa MadCast: Mike MadCast: Nimli MadCast: Lurama MadCast: doublestufforeo Photo Album Thank you again to everyone that contributed this year! Together we pooled $1032.48 in gifts, and an additional $1000 directly towards CASA Kendall County. I wanted to share with you that the charity has committed that $1000 directly towards the child we sponsored this year. Things like college applications, a theme park day in the summer, preparing her to be an independent adult with things like driving lessons, and the ability to indulge in a hobby, are all things we take for granted. This kid not only got outfitted with some of the latest and greatest tech, but has a little nest egg to dip into for things that are not considered necessities by the state. Take a moment and think about the impact we just made this holiday season. Humbly, -Scooba A personal thank you card arrived from our sponsored child. A small note: The child only knows the foundation name, similarly to how we do not know the child's name (until she wrote to us and signed it). The charity is well aware that this was a group effort with contributors from friends, family, and you bunch'a nerds.

    I have Copic markers but I haven't used them as much after we moved. They need some TLC honestly, so I may be posting more art with them soon. Thank you though! Thank you for the kind words. I was very back-and-forth about the border, but in the end I think it works well to fill the open spaces without taking attention from the characters.

    Prologue: The Quake

    Prologue Traders go, and do not come back. Grim faced mountain folk come to the low lands, raw with wounds, speaking of goblins on the march. Still, commerce plodded along, finding no small supply of would be adventurers in desperate need of coin. Thus it was that a random assortment of talented individuals found themselves on the north road, many leagues from the safety of Mado Curas. After a long and peaceful trip, the caravan lingered. Caravan Master Kha'Os insisted that the farriers he treated with were never late, always careful, yet the decision was made to head south at first light, back to the safety of the patrolled farming hamlets and the walls of Mado Curas itself. A band of goblin pillagers, commanded by a warboss named Krieg, had other designs, and encircled the party before attacking. In a fracas of magic and might, the goblins were either driven off or slain, save Krieg, who was dealt a savage blow and taken wounded, yet alive back to the city. Paid handsomely by both their employers and the city, this group of eccentrics partook of Mado Curas' amenities. In a stupor of drink, food, and... other comforts, they were all approached by an only slightly-sinister, top hatted man who introduced himself as Johann Obed Trithemius, wealthy dilettante and investor-at-large. The florid man approached over a dozen such unique individuals, always with the same offer: Adventure, Glory, and Fortune. With rapidity, this organization of mercenary adventurers grew. Lacking any proper name (yet), a meeting of all these disparate souls was arranged, and it was there that either fickle chance or malevolent gods intervened. As Trithemius rose his voice to speak, an earthquake of apocalyptic magnitude shook the city. The opulent manor the adventurers had gathered in began to break apart, and their host revealed himself as a potent spellcaster. Shouting above the cacophony the top-hatted man waved his hands and created several fractal rifts in the air, beckoning everyone to jump through. Absent any other option, the adventurers did, and found themselves magically cashiered out of the building and split across the city. Quickly gathering their surroundings, they coalesced into two groups. The city had been rent in two, a large crevass now encompassing most of the governmental district. The adventurers wound their way through the rubble, aiding the people where they could and smiting both opportunists and monsters where peaceable means failed. Their efforts culminated in a fight against Warboss Krieg. Sensing no escape, the goblin downed a violent magical concoction, mutating into a near indestructible behemoth. Working in cohesion, the reunited crews met the warped goblin head on, dodging blows and countering fiercely while buying time for magical barrages. In short order, the warboss was cut down. Rallying at an impromptu camp set up by Trithemius, the gathered adventurers rest and recover. Around them, the city began a slow process of assessing damage, establishing order, and salvaging what remained.

    This is your resource for getting Risk of Rain 2 set up to play beyond the cap of 4 people. https://thunderstore.io/ This is the site that contains all the Risk of Rain 2 mods we will be using. As of right now, there are only three core mods you need to acquire and install. Select manual install and get the zip files for the three mods below: BepInExPack R2API TooManyFriends First, from BepInExPack.zip, open the BepInExPack folder. From that folder, copy the BepInEx Folder, doorstop_config, and winhttp.dll to your Risk of Rain 2 Steam Folder (For Example: C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\steamapps\common\Risk of Rain 2). Second, from the R2API zip, copy the plugins and monomod folders into Risk of Rain 2\BepInEx\plugins. This second plugins folder (whose final location should be similar to C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\steamapps\common\Risk of Rain 2\BepInEx\plugins\plugins) will be the location for all further mod .dll files. Finally, copy the TooManyFriends.dll from the final .zip to the second plugins folder, and you are ready for mayhem.

    Coming into 2020 I wanted to just reiterate the open nature of this forum and welcome any and all questions, comments, and discussion here in a respectful environment. This thread is a safe space. "What she meant by “safe space” was that she was happy to be in an environment where difficult subjects can be discussed openly, without the risk of disrespect or harsh judgment. This works both ways. What I mean is, this young woman was comfortable, in this university setting, wrestling with things like the Aristotelian idea of some humans being born as “natural slaves.” She was quite comfortable in that space. The question was, how comfortable was the 52-year-old white guy in that discussion? Did it make me uncomfortable? Yes. I’m grateful for the discomfort. Thinking about things I don’t understand or have, for most of my life, written off, is a good thing." - My Semester With the Snowflakes So feel free to be uncomfortable, ask questions, and learn from each other. Also with the New Year I welcome you to look back and reflect on 2019 in LGBT rights. Opening up with 2020 I thought I'd start off with something fun, and while I've shared this video before, Cut does excerpts on certain people and I quite enjoy Woody's takes on sexual orientation. Here's to a more positive, tolerant, and accepting 2020.

    Tomorrow marks the beginning of the holiday season for some and much needed family time for many. In the spirit of the holidays, MadCast will begin its own holiday vacation today, concluding January 2, 2020. During this period, administrative response time will be delayed as our admin team takes some time to spend with their loved ones. There will be no official events scheduled during the holiday period. However, all of our usual outlets, including the forums and Discord, will remain accessible should folks find some extra time and want to game between holiday events. From us to you: Happy Holidays!
