Our Forge: Out of Chaos game continues. We decided to wave a magic wand and advance the characters to what seems like a reasonable “next tier” of effectiveness, giving Robbie’s magic-using character Cyir Level 3 with his Magic skill and Sean’s roguish/scoutish Wrosk improvement throughout his repertoire of skills.

We've played a number of sessions of Forge: Out of Chaos since our last update, here, and Robbie has started to record the sessions. The video below is from a few sessions back (we've had two since then - those recordings are on the way).
Here's a blessed event insofar as I can finally talk about role-playing content and procedures that are ordinarily kicked down the road. For me, Adept Play is a rousing success insofar as ideas can be introduced and resolved enough so that "next ideas" can actually be addressed, and I don't have to spray down the entry point with fire-extinguisher foam or, for that matter, disinfectant.
Jon, Robbie, and I are three sessions into Forge out of Chaos. Jon is the game master; Robbie is playing a Merikkii (humanoid bird), and I chose to play a Jher-em, which are weasel humanoids. This situation Jon has come up with for us to engage with is some fantastic sword & sorcery fare.
At Jon’s prompting, a group of us are preparing to take on Forge: Out of Chaos. This will be my third experience with a Fantasy Heartbreaker—Legendary Lives and Darkurthe Legends are the others that I’ve played, and you can find some materials on those games elsewhere on Adept Play.
Finding D&D, part 4! This one is scaring me. Remember how I warned that the one about fundamentalism and the OSR wouldn't be insulting? I fear this one can't say the same, and even if it doesn't go too far, I know it's going to gore a lot of oxen.
Here, hop into this handbasket with me. We’re goin’ for a ride!
It’s part of “Finding D&D,” focusing this time on fundamentalist belief and practice, including but not limited to the OSR. I thought about waiting until part 4 was done, as these two parts only make full sense relative to one another. But whatever; it’s a draft, and I might as well start collecting “what about” and “you forgot [some damn thing]” now.
