Episode 151

With the Corpse of the Turkish Business Man finally deposited into the canal, and Tiny Tim Boxleys brain still mostly in his head, the Investigators finally have finally located this Medallion that everyone seems to be interested in. They have found a Villa on the Via Marco Polo and it has a frieze of Bacchus just like Clarissa’s bruise over the door. Hopefully the amulet is inside and having this this will allow them to do a deal with the Things in the nearby caves for the piece of the simulacrum that the Investigators now fear they have. The door is padlocked and chained up, but with a master thief in their midst they should be able to get through that pretty easier.

Faced with what seems to be an honest to goodness Dragon the Knights (and Brother David) prepare to see if they can get away, but are hindered by the injured Bledic the Bard.

If they can get away though they need to get the rite back to Count Baldwin if they are to have any chance of locating the Devils Simulare and ending the hold of Evil over the city of Constantinople.

Can they trust their allies, can they trust their lord? They definitely cannot trust the Leper Priest Merovac…

Sorry for the delay but Migraine’s made it super difficult to do editing yesterday and we have no buffer what so ever due to Larp season and so on.

We discuss the CP’s Renewal very briefly before actually starting with the Cthulhu.

With the Sarnathian plot.. defused shall we say, the Investigators first deal with the question of whether Guilliame should be allowed onto the train and then begin to prepare for the funeral of Blackjack. First though are a number of people on the train that they really should be talking to!

The Buzz is back again. But only occasionally, unfortunately it seems to be very uneven and particularly affects the quieter sections.

Episode 121

Having been approached by the Sarnathians, who although pretty are a little bit on the morally corrupt side of things, the players set off to negotiate with the Beings of Ib. This may be a problem if they cannot keep their dinners down while doing so (the beings of Ib are disgusting although not as disgusting as the Sarnathians).

They also continue through the dreamlands, as the players continue dealing with the strange otherworld they have found themselves in. None of them have yet decided what they want to divest themselves of into the abyss of Nodens, could this be a mistake? Who knows!

Is that someone waiting to get on the train? I’m not certain if they should be allowed on!

This session stops a bit abruptly as the recording machine stopped recording… YOU HAD ONE JOB MACHINE!!

Will they find the missing Antiquarian, or will they have to flee before the hammy fist of the Fascisti falls on them.

With the leg firmly in their possession they should leave as soon as possible…

Of course when they leave they will be tired, so they will likely sleep, and perhaps (definitely!) be drawn into the dreamlands to the Train in Henri Peters!

Mansions of Madness 2nd Edition

Posted in Review, The Witterings of Mawdrigen, Uncategorized with tags , on 12 August 2016 by Mawdrigen

TLDR Review: Oh My God I Love This Game.

I played Mansions of Madness 1st Ed with the rest of the Cult of Tea And Dice, and we (for the most part) liked it. It was a gorgeous game and despite issues with some of the missions it was enjoyable. It did suffer a bit from the same “Evil Overlord” problems that Descent has where the GM player had to play very hard and really victimise the players as much as possible to keep the game working as appropriate. It was less prevalent in Mansions however and I believe this was actually due to the subject matter, you expect a Cthulhu Mythos game to be “harsh and murdery”.

One thing about it that stopped us playing it more? Set up.
It took FOREVER to set up, and if the GM made a mistake the mission could be impossible but you wouldn’t necessarily realise that until the end. You had to create the decks of items and so on, build mythos decks, select and set out the clues in the rooms and so on and so on. The set up also mostly landed on the GM making the separation even more pronounced and making the GM position less fun. We tend to play games to get together with people and have fun, anything that isolates one player, then make them do more work than the other players? That’s not a good thing.

Does this get solved by Mansions of Madness 2nd Ed? YES

Mansions 2 now supports up to five players, and although one of them has to drive the app everyone gets to play. Which is AWESOME. No one is left out, and the work is taken out of the set up. Now you just sort the components and grab starting items, then the app shows you the first room setup, complete with “things you can look at, interact with, or go through” the player party sets all this down and begins play. Which is where the App comes in.

One thing that I would say is that the app probably should do more “keeping track” of how many actions that you have and are performing. Specifically I think it should keep track of how many “puzzle steps” each player has available. Also a back button, might be worthwhile, we skipped a monster attack by accident as we didn’t realise we had moved on to another monster of the same step.

That said the is pretty awesome, not only does it tell you your starting equipment, but going forward keeps track of what you have and have not investgated, controls the movement and attacks of monsters and NPCS and generating the map and “random occurences” which where before would be triggered by the GM to mess with the players, is now triggered by the app during the mythos phase.

As you take an action you move on the board, and then click on the appropriate item on the app to find out what happens or what tests you need to make. If a puzzle is required although it doesn’t keep track of how many actions you should have, it will record your progress and inform you once you have completed it and what happens next!

Handily the App doesn’t “take over” the game. As the rather fine review over at Rock Paper Shotgun noted, the app runs stuff, but the board is still integral as are the card decks and so on. You never end up feeling that you may as well just be playing a cooperative Ipad game instead of a board game, which is good. It does help to have a person do the voices however we found!

To give an idea of how the app works I’ll give an example of entering the Bathroom in the mission we played. I clicked to investigate the cupboard above the sink, only for the app to inform me that the floor had collapsed! It then asked for a Speed; 2 check, and told me if I failed I had to take facedown damage, and if I suceeded I took an item, and moved back to the hall. The Tests in the system work much the same way as before, with a slight difference. You still roll a number of dice = to your stat, but the dice ar d8’s with either Elder signs (Success) Blank (Fail) or magnifying glasses (mayyybe?!?) on them. You need enough elder signs to reach the target number, but if you have clue tokens you can turn magnifying glasses into elder signs on a one to one basis. I LIKE THIS A LOT. It makes clues powerful but not always so, if you have rolled no magnifying glasses those clues are useless.

It works similarly with the attacks as well, you choose what weapon you are attacking with (for example a bladed or heavy weapon) and the app tells you what to roll. In the starter adventure I’ll admit I murdered a ton of cultists and deep ones by the fact that I was a grave digger with a machete. Even better the app keeps track of the monsters hit points for you, no more pushing cardboard hearts into slots for me, and it will also tell you when they die.

The only vague worry I have is that the creatures attacks and horror checks can repeat fairly often, indeed the person I was playing with ended up worrying whether she was related to a deep one for most of the fight. With a few App updates however this should cease to be a problem.

One thing I havent done yet but that I intend to do at the weekend is to use the conversion kit and include everything from the first edition and it’s expansions. The inclusion of this kit is very definitely a feather in FFG’s cap, they could after all have made us all buy expansions to include these things, but they chose not to and I support this stance. The method of adding these items into the app is very easy (you just click on the extra item and mark it as enabled).

The only thing that does worry me is the app currently only has 4 missions in it, one of which is the *easier starting adventure. That said the app alters parts of the adventure each play through so the replayability is there, but I would like to see more adventures released for this via APP updates pretty quickly, specifically extra missions that use the 1st ed missions might be nice.

On the whole Mansions of Madness Second Edition is frankly awesome and i want to play it more, and with more missions!

*Easier here is relative. It just tried to drop a Star Spawn on us in the starting adventure… We ran away. FAST

Will they be able to save Miss Stagliani from a fate worse than death, that of being married to the man made of ham Alberto Rossini. Will they be able to get hold of the Sedefkar Simulacrum if they start a ruck with the Black Shirts however, and even if they can… will they survive the effort to get it with their sanity, and bodies, intact.

Finally we try the “brother” of the Brown Rice Tea, that so traumatised us that I cannot even remember what session we reviewed it on.

The later half of the recording has some sound issues sadly, I have attempted to clean them up.

Instead they find themselves in a prosthetic limb factory. With humanoid sized limbs all around, could the Simulacrum be hiding in plain site?

With the rumours of humanoid fish in the canals however, is the debacle of Norfolk coming back to haunt them. Will they be able to find the leg and leave the City of Canals, or will the death that is stalking them finally catch them up. Will there be a farce at the funeral?

Will the disgusting beings from Ib prove to be as disgusting in action as they are in view, and what of the beautiful people from Sarnath? Will they buy wine from the Wine merchant? Who is the Dancer who appears late to the train?

Worse still Oldstaff has already made enemies on the train, although Clarrissa seems to be getting on well with Madame Brujah the severe Elizabethan widow.

It turns out they have leads for both Poissy and Charenton Asylum. With Comte De Fenalik’s villa being at Poissy, and that being the last known resting place of the Simulacrum they decide to do that first.

Reaching the town they begin their investigations, but will they locate the item they wish to find.

Of course getting into the Bibliotechque National takes time… So why not do some (A LOT) of tourism first.

Luckily most of them speak French, shame it’s not the ones that are great at dealing with libraries really.

Somewhat hampered by Clarissa’s incessant hysterical laughing, they begin to plan their next move. In typical fashion… its a really good (!?) one.
