Storm King’s Thunder: A Great Upheaveal

  • Started, Party heard rumor’s of a reward for helping the Town/Keep of Nightstone with some Goblin attacks.  Party helped some outcast Goblins, then went into town, fought 2 Wargs, (Druid was down and doing death saving throws, made them all) Got back up and transformed into a Ice Cat (From their last adventure) the other 2 party members freaked out (First time they have seen this) I made them do fear throes, they made it. Moved into Temple and found 2 Goblins, killed one, and tired one up and integrate them, found out where there Main tribe is.  I’ll be honest and state I was very surprised they did not go all Murder Hobo with the first set of Goblins. They did some nice RP/Conversation with them. Which shocked me. My friends kid’s are normally Kill them all, and ask question later.


Played an yet unnamed board game for an upcoming Kickstarter preview we will publish in the next few weeks.

Mok Taskmaster Sends in an email, titled “In Defense Of Pineleaf”


Good day Gentlemen!

So.  Slight defence of Pineleaf here….   Last week when talking about the DDO played in 4K Pineleaf mentioned something about it being the ‘pixels’ – which he was technically correct.

Stupid resolutions and the TV manufacturers have everyone screwed up, on purpose, to sell more stuff….

“Cinema” 4K = 4096 pixels wide x 2160 pixels high

UHD – Which is ‘consumer’ 4k = 3840 pixels wide x 2160 pixels high

1080p – 1920 pixels wide x 1080 pixels high

720p – 1280 pixels wide x 720 pixels high

So yeah, confusion all around.  Even full on techies have issues deciphering it all, confusing on purpose.

But, for most people, consumers, UHD and 4K is the same thing effectively.

BUT, there still is no defense for not watching those movies.  Goonies?  Labyrinth?   Now, news of never seeing Predator?   Ugh.  No defense for that…….
