Played some #dnd 5e yesterday with Jenn Martin, Dave Michalak, Geoff Raye, and our inestimable DM MadJay Brown! Half our intrepid band were tasked with recovering the person and/or remains of the Archon of Istus, the other half searching for the Dark Mirror of Summoning Bad Things (and loot). Luckily, both missions involve delving into the same volcanic ruins!
The big highlight for me was managing to totally avoid a fight with a salamander via judicious use of parley; Geoff’s warloc’sk ability to basically know all languages saved us lots of trouble!
Later I got be the meatiest of meat shields by soaking up most of the attacks from a group of fire mephitis.
Gotta say, still really liking this edition. Sure, Jay is kicking ass and taking names as a DM, and this group is awesome in general, but things just seem to work in 5e.
