Questions of robot rights and dystopian ethics don’t often hit as hard as they do in Freedom Wars, though once they do core combat gameplay loops should have you enslaved.

PAC-MAN and the Ghostly Adventur Review
Is the entire Ghostly Adventures series, including the TV show, a prequel to the rest of Pac-Man’s life? Because in my childhood I seem to remember Pac having a girlfriend and a kid, not worrying about Pac-puberty.

D&D Campaigns from Hell: The Firetrap
Posted on Wednesday, March 31 2010 @ 05:16:03 Eastern

Yeah, I got bored and am feeling in an imaginative mood, so I came up with the idea for D&D Campaigns from Hell, which is all about Dungeons and Dragons scenarios that throw a curveball at your otherwise unsuspecting players.

Note that I have no idea how Dungeons & Dragons actually works, so this may be impossible.

The Firetrap

Your party learns about a dangerous plant-monster that dwells in a nearby cave. They go investigate.

The cave is long and dark. No matter where they search, they can find only:
  • Corpses of previous adventurers
  • High-level Fire-enchanted weapons
  • Smoke-damaged (Path 1) or Fire-damaged (Path 2) armour (see below)
At the end of the cave, they find a Treant (Tree monster)

Here's the evil part, and it can go in one of two directions:
1. If they use a fire-based attack on it, they set the Treant alight, but the cave starts to fill with smoke. They now have 5 turns to escape before they choke to death. Problem is, it takes 7 to get to the entrance.
2. The Treant has a magical item that reflects all fire damage. The moment an attack connects, the attacker gets set on fire, taking 20% of their max. health each turn until they die or are put out.
