FULL - V17 Fri Sep 15 8:48pm CDT Hedgehog 9 months 1 week ago #1

Woohoo last-minute scramble! For extra added fun, NOBODY will have seen the dungeon yet, which could make things even more hilarious. (NB: we don't require much coaching, so I think folks on <= 7:12pm patron runs should be fine to join this too)

td.events/conventions/vtd17_ch6/slots/22197

I have all 10 tickets and am looking for more players; post here with class preferences if you'd like to join! Cost is $74 each; I'll PM payment details once we have critical mass.

Order of the Hedgehog precepts:
  • win as many combats as possible using ONLY Retribution damage (no attacking)
  • mercilessly attack any foes too cowardly to engage us in melee
  • must consent to combat-related spoilers
  • Nightmare difficulty

1. David Zych: Cleric/Bard/Elf/Paladin/Fighter/Dwarf/any (CoA x3, HHL x2)
2. zinniz: Barbarian {paid}
3. Alex: Monk {paid:zinniz}
4. Jason Efford: Fighter {paid}
5. BeLinda Mathie: Paladin/Dwarf {paid} *back to back runs (7:12 patron)*
6. James W: Druid {paid}
7. BasicBraining: Rogue {paid}
8. Ashley: Bard/any {paid:BasicBraining}
9. Kendal: Elf {paid}
10. Wade: Dwarf Defender {paid}

Note that many hedgehogs typically do not equip Charms of Awakened Synergy because we need the slots for other things.

Build for high RD , low AC (12 is usually good), and at least some melee DR .

Remember you must actually take at least 1 point of melee damage per hit in order to inflict RD, so too much melee DR is counterproductive, but if you get hit 10 or 15 times then each point of melee DR you equip is worth 10 or 15 hp!

Ear: Earcuff of Ramparts
Neck: Amulet of Thorns
Torso: Plate of the Forge (Cleric, Fighters & Paladin) or Scorpion Chitin Armor
Hands: Berserker Gloves
Back: Cloak of Retribution
Waist: Belt of Thorns or Belt of Retribution
Charm: Charm of Thorny Barbs
Charm: Charm of Thorns
Charm: Charm of Barbs

I have many extra Amulet of Thorns, Plate of the Forge, Charm of Thorns, and Charm of Barbs, one extra Charm of Thorny Barbs, and one extra Cloak of Retribution.

Yes, my AC is lower than the Wizard's. No regrets!

I would love to join this again. Fighter if possible but will flex accordingly.

I can't confirm I can join until that very evening. Put me on standby with any leftover class, and don't hold my spot if the run fills up. Thanks!

This was really fun last time, so I'm in, as Druid.

I am so proud that our run is nearly full despite short notice! 1 more slot available if anybody else wants to jump in.

We won't have any foreknowledge this time of how hard the monsters hit, but in general I feel like up to 7 melee DR has been a safe bet for *most* NM adventures. (and if it turns out that something does hit for less than 8 at a time, hopefully our DM will allow us to spend actions temporarily removing some of our equipment so we can still be damaged by it, LOL)

I'll take you last one.

If someone drops, I have another interested.

Since we are blind, should I grab Dwarf Defender?
