Revenge of the Red Dragon

PBeM Game (10/12/2000 - 11/22/2000)


Here's a log of a play-by-e-mail game of Revenge of the Red Dragon that I played against Andy Sekela. The e-mails have been modified slightly in order to make them more consistent and to remove irrelevant content, and the Microsoft Word documents we exchanged have been converted to HTML with a mostly-decent degree of success. Andy deserves credit for devising all of the fancy rules and tables, which you may well find useful if you ever try to play this game by e-mail yourself... In case you don't feel like digging through the e-mails to find them, they are linked here:

Now, on to our game.

(I actually would have chosen the Dragon if it came down to it anyway!) I will move to Castle Arcania, just for old time's sake (even though I haven't played that book yet).

Some ground rules I'd like to clarify:
1) I always tell you where I am.
2) Though we resolve our own battles, we should at least tell each other what we fought (although we don't have to mention treasure we gain).
3) I will let you know if/when I will summon the faerie dragon back to me.
4) I won't read on until you tell me it is my turn again.

I'm sure there's other stuff, but that's what I could think of so far.

Looking forward to our game!
Andy

Well, I finally got ready to start playing... I think I'm going to save all of the e-mails of this game so that I can put up a log on my web site when we're done... assuming that you don't mind, of course. :)

Anyway, on with the game...

Probably goes without saying, but we should probably use d20s to generate numbers in combat. :) Also, I think it would be helpful to keep a list of what's in the play area; certain actions require that I write notes and put them on the table, so to speak, and if we have a status line then we won't lose track of what's out there.

That being said...

Play area: Empty.

I've made my first move; your turn. :)

I will start serializing the messages for ease of tracking. If you want to use a different method, that's fine. Just let me know.

My rather brief visit at Castle Arcania included fighting a group of Skeleton Warriors, which I defeated. I will move to the Purple Plain on my next turn.

Subject: Rules Question

Demian,

Before I continue, I need resolution on a question. I may have been conducting the turns improperly. Is your turn over when you announce you are moving into a new area, or when you need to turn to a new page within that same area? I thought one turn involved any decisions (incl. fighting) you had to make within one area.

Example: (Feel free to look at the Flametongue book if you need to) # 29 - I enter the Purple Plain. It asks if I want to attack the copper dragon or continue to chase after the Knight.
# 84 - I choose to attack the Dragon, and conduct the combat in this section.
# 80 - after defeating the Dragon, I search his lair by going to this section. After that, I choose the next area to go to.

Should this sequence have been one turn (the way I played it, since it all takes place in the Purple Plain), or 3 turns???

The rules aren't entirely clear, but they do say if you decide to fight an enemy you resolve the combat during that movement turn. It says after that you decide where to go next, but you do not read further until your next turn. I assumed that "where to go" meant to a new area, and didn't include if you wanted to search for treasure or something.

If I am wrong, I am probably a few turns ahead of you!

I won't take turn 5 until I hear back from you, as I ran into the same situation in the Lich's Way.

Hmm... Tough question; I've been playing this the opposite way from you... Simply resolving one page and then ending my turn. That seemed the correct way to do things, since it's sometimes a bit ambiguous as to whether I'm going to a new area or not; that suggested to me that every page turn, regardless of what's going on, ends the turn.

Anyway, you're right about the rules being unclear; they're a bit of a mess, actually... I still don't quite understand the purpose of allies in combat, since it seems like only one person can attack at a time, and the player character is generally a better fighter than the allies... but that's another matter entirely. :)

Regarding the basic turn-taking, I suggest that we do the one page turn equals one game turn, simply because it's an unambiguous choice, whereas "moving to another area" can sometimes be a rather fuzzy decision. If you agree to that, let me know how far ahead you are and I'll catch up with you. :)

Subject: Re: Rules Question

Demian,

I was afraid we were doing things differently. That would explain why I fought so many things already! I do agree with you that the least ambiguous method is to go page-by-page, and that's what we should do.

My last battle against the Crystal Cave Walls in the Lich's Way was page (and therefore turn) 11 for me, so I'm a good bit ahead of you. I don't know whether that will impact the game. I wouldn't think it would have too much of an effect. But we could just start over again if you want, or I'll just wait for you to catch up.

As far as allies... when my brother and I played we got into the same discussion. I looked at all the books, and in a couple of them I found a line that says you and all your allies attack first. So we assumed that you roll for your main character and any allies first, and then for the monster you're fighting. This gives you an obvious advantage, but if you didn't allow allies to attack every turn then, like you said, they wouldn't have much purpose. On the other hand, if you and all your allies attack first, then there's a good chance you can defeat your opponent before he even gets a chance to strike back.

How about this - participants on each side alternate attacks until each participant has attacked once, which concludes one round of combat. For example, you and your allies (an Elf and a Dwarf) are attacking a Dragon. You attack first. Then the Dragon attacks. Then the Elf and Dwarf each attack. (If the Dragon had an ally, he would attack after the Elf and before the Dwarf.) That completes one round. Then you start the process over again, with you attacking, then the Dragon, etc. What do you think?

I am sorry for the confusion. I guess we just need to get the bugs worked out. The next books we play (and I hope we will play again) should go much easier.

I'm glad you agree on the one-section-at-a-time thing, and I definitely agree with your suggestion regarding turn-taking in combat... So I think we've worked out all the eccentricities of the rules... now back to the game...

I'm now caught up, having also played through eleven sections. Along the way to catch up with you, I battled Wights, a Warlord and his Horse, and a Hordling. It is now your turn.

Yes, I think we're back on track again. (There are definitely some abiguities in the rules. But with a little common sense and discussion, those are easily overcome. I still like the overall format and gameplay, though.)

I am still wandering through the Lich's Way. (I never did like those undead types; they just don't taste as good as you living folk.)

Now it's getting interesting!

You are magically compelled to answer the following questions:
1) what area you are in
2) name all your allies and reveal how many hit points each has
3) describe one magic item in your possession.

I am still in the Lich's Way (will this never end??).

Play area: Empty.

One rules question - If I need to give up a magic item (to gain a benefit in this case), do Healing Potions count? Technically a potion would be a magic item, but it seems kind of lame to give up a mere potion. Perhaps it should be something a little more powerful.

And by the way, it's your turn.

You are magically compelled to answer the following questions:

Fiendish lizard!

1) what area you are in

I'm in the Dwarven Hills at the moment...

2) name all your allies and reveal how many hit points each has

Those would be Euras (6 hp), Scorch (7 hp), Phantast (10 hp) and Gridelin, whose hit points are unknown. Euras is a Djinn, Scorch is an Efreet, Phantast is a Nightmare, and Gridelin is a Fairy Dragon.

3) describe one magic item in your possession.

My Ebony Blade, Nightslasher, does nine points of damage outdoors and twelve points of damage indoors. Don't ask me why, but I can't complain.

I think giving up a healing potion is fair; those can be precious at times!

With all that out of the way, I took another uneventful turn. Your move once more!

I know, I'm a bad lizard. I come from a broken home, so what do you expect? (When I was only 50, my mother ate my father, and I had to live with my grand-dragons way up north...)

Anyway, now that I know everything about you except your mother's maiden name, I guess we can continue.

I continue my apparently endless wanderings in the Lich's Way. Your move.

Play area: Empty.

Rules Question (hereafter abbreviated "RQ") 2 - (I'll serialize these now as well.) If I gain an ally (via spell, magic item, etc.) do I need to reveal that? I know we're not supposed to reveal treasure gained, but I don't know if an ally would fit into that category.

As for the Healing potion question, I agree with your assessment.

By the way, I think I have my suggestion for our combat worked out. I'll email it to you tomorrow. Basically, it will consist of a table in a Word document. At the beginning of every round, we'll each write in what each of our characters will do. We'll take turns fighting each round (i.e., I'll fight one round, rolling for both your and my characters; then you'll fight the next round; etc.). This may take time, but as it is likely to be the final conflict, it will probably be worth it. Of course, after you see the final document, it should be a little clearer. And this is just my first suggestion; I won't be offended if you don't like it or want to try something else.

Well, I've really done it this time! Stuck my sword in the wrong lake, and now you've been teleported into combat with me! You're now at the Enchanted Lake, and you can't retreat due to the magical nature of your appearance. If I am to understand the rules correctly, you always get initiative over me, and under the circumstances I imagine we're both about equally surprised at the turn of events... So I guess your best bet is to send over your instructions for the first attack!

I looked up a couple things in the Black Knight's book, namely the effect of a couple spells you cast. Please feel free to do the same. As there are a lot of special rules and circumstances, we can either include them in the game file (and add time to the process) or just refer to the other book as needed. I recommend the latter. If either of us use an object we found along the way (eg. the Iron Statue), we can provide info on that object as required.

Your move!

Well, that was quick! I just got splattered all about the landscape. :) First, your fire breath lead to a special (*) which somehow caused you to do 22 points of damage to my group. Almost immediately thereafter, Sistoo scored a critical hit, doing another 18 points of damage! That was that. :) You've won! Congratulations! The final battle file is attached, in case you're curious to see what happened exactly...
