  • Losing Our Interviewginity | StupidRanger.com
    floor and we met up with a very nice woman a few of you may have heard by the name of Shelly Mazzanoble We talked to her for a little while and then the topic of what else we had going on that day came up and she tells us that she saw our names on the interview lineup and she was pretty sure we were going to be with Andy Collins and Bill Slavicsek It was then that I saw all the blood drain from Dante s face At this point all we knew about our interview was we d be speaking to someone from WotC We figured being a small blog we were going to get some intern who could answer some broad questions about their new products The names hadn t registered in my mind yet but I knew Shelly had just dropped a bomb on us It was only after we sat down and started looking up the things our interviewees had written that we both felt our sanity crumble We didn t just get some talking head from a game company or the guy that used to get coffee for the WotC helpdesk We were interviewing one of the guys that wrote the 4e PHB and the director of R D at WotC This was the dream If we pull this off I could travel back in time to meet 12 year old me and tell him what I d been doing and he would look back at me in wonder and say either gnarly or totally radical Stupid Ranger of course was cool as a cucumber as usual Mostly because she d had the foresight to schedule being on a Women of RPG Blogging panel with E from Geek s Dream Girl during the time we d scheduled the WotC interview leaving the two of us to handle it You know back before it became infinitely terrifying I Love It When A Plan Comes Together And so it was that Dante and I found ourselves in the lobby of the Marriott furiously writing questions that we thought were incisive yet not too offensive Questions we thought they would enjoy answering Questions that would bring enlightenment to geeks everywhere and solve world hunger Also I was trying to convince Dante that it was a good idea to let me ask them some really weird crap because that s who we are dammit Fortunately he talked me out of most of the strange ideas I was having but we did decide to try to answer one long standing argument from the archives You ll just have to wait around for the interview to find out how that went About a half hour before our appointment with the lords of gaming Bartoneus from Critical Hits finds us He asks us why we appear to be making repeated FORT saves and we explain our situation He tells us he has interviewed Andy before and that he is very

  • Behind the Screen: Keep on the Shadowfell wrap up… | StupidRanger.com
    As our group has grown we towed around these additional characters so thinning one out wasn t as heavy of a loss it would have been otherwise The Thing in the Portal was one of my favorite parts Its ability to heal Kalarel AND heighten the perceived peril by dragging characters closer to the rift was exciting for everyone The Portal itself was a very good mechanism to dovetail my own campaign plot into the rest of the world established by the module so I was very pleased with that What Didn t Go Well A long taxing series of battles is a two edged sword Kalarel and company stretched our group so thin that a couple of my players didn t get the reward of victory feeling after completing the battle The group elected to stop for the night before searching the area so maybe a bit of treasure might be a balm to their battle injuries but I hate to see them walk away a little frustrated I was a little aggrevated with the lack of treasure in the second to last battle I ended up putting a little gold in there so they had something to be excited about after taking the time to search the rest of that giant map This had very little to do with Keep on the Shadowfell but we had a fairly large lull in the middle of the first battle trying to figure out exactly how Barbarian rage worked Thanks to the ENWorld forums and the help of those that came before us we were able to sort it out but that mechanic is just a tad clunky and poorly explained in the PHB2 We got past it eventually but I don t like it when that type of thing slows
