      For everyone who cares, sorry I haven't made part 2 for my first DnD adventure (or part 3 for that matter) I've been suuuuuuuuuuuuper sick and haven't been doing much aside from sleeping xP But I promise I'll work on it tonight, so look forward too the end to the goblin cave adventure, a brawl outside a tavern, interrogations that don't go as planned, and the befriending of a hideous disgusting creature that feasts off human remains xD

    • My First DnD Adventure Part. 1

      3 weeks ago

      YoiteShimizu

      So I recently started playing DnD with my cousins, it was my first time ever playing since my mom didn't allow me to have anything to do with fantasy stuff growing up. (although that didn't stop me from playing games or watching anime with fantasy elements behind her back) Anyways, I figured that I'd chronicle my first little adventure. Don't expect this too be incredibly detailed considering the last time we played was around two weeks ago, but future entries in this series will hopefully be made sooner after our sessions.


      Alright, for starters, the party consists of Raya, an Elardin psionic from the Feywilds, Uthal, the Goliath warrior from the Thesk Mountains, Callie, our Wood Elf Rogue from High Forest, Syllin, our half Dragonborn Sorcerer, and myself, Volare, a High Elf Cleric from the Western Heartlands. We all took a job from this over excited dwarf who wanted us to transport supplies to this town a couple days south the city we were in while he went and delivered this special map he had found. After a few trips to some stores the group began heading south most of us walking along the oxen led wagon, while Syllin drove it alone, something he was kinda bitter about.


      A good few hours down the road we noticed a horses with arrows sticking out of them, clearly an ambush, but I decided to investigate anyways with Uthal like a noob. Next thing I knew arrows were flying out of the trees to the east, and one hit me in the shoulder, taking out half of my health. Two goblins came running from the tree line at us wielding scimitars, while the other two were still in the trees. The rest of the party sprang into action, Callie being the Rogue of course ended up with the highest initiative, so she went first, and decided to catch up with us and throw both of her daggers at one of the goblins that were charging, killing it. Next was Uthal, who might as well have done nothing at all. He decided to throw his first hand ax at the goblin that was charging, and missed horribly, then used his bonus action to throw his other ax, and rolled a natural 1, so he sprained his wrist when he through it, and it of course missed.


      I was next up and of course I had to snark about how Uthal was really earning his keep, because Volare is a massive prick, then I cast a fire bolt at one of the archer goblins in the tree, specifically the one that shot me, and I not only burnt his body to a crisp, but also set the tree on fire. Next up was Syllin, who also used a fire bolt, but on the last goblin that was charging and nearly killed it. Next up was Raya, who used telekinesis to chuck a rock at the other goblin that was in the trees, knocking him down. Finally it was back to Callie, and she decided to rush forward and finish off the charging goblin by stabbing it with her dagger, then as a bonus action, threw her other dagger at the goblin who fell from the tree, rolled a natural 20, and chopped his arm off, effectively defeating him. 


      Since I spoke goblin, I decided it would be best if we interrogated him. So after making sure he wouldn't bleed out, we tied him up, and that's when I got an idea to intimidate him before he woke up. I had Uthal go get the burnt corpse of his friend from earlier (the one that shot me in the shoulder) and had him throw the body in front of him when the goblin woke up. This of course terrified them and to add to that, I knelt in front of him, and unflinchingly pushed the arrow in my shoulder through and pulled it out while I asked him questions. We learned that the horses belonged to the dwarf that hired us and his human companion, that the dwarf was taken to someone named king Grawl, and that the companion was taken to the goblin hideout, in a room called "the eating chamber," we also learned that the path to their lair had traps, and that the first room there was a kennel with wolves trained only to listen to goblins. We decided to keep the goblin alive and tied up, however it was late in the day, and a couple of us got some damage, and I used one of my two spell slots healing the goblin, so we decided on a system in which the elves in the party would take watch, swapping in and out in order to use our trance to get 4 hour long rests while the two non elves slept through the night. 


      Everything was going fine until it was my solo watch, and that's when I rolled a two for my perception check, to which the DM responded, "you literally notice nothing, you might as well have just been in your trance" xD THEN he rolls, and gets a natural fucking 20, so whatever he rolled for, did fucking FANTASTIC in whatever it was doing. We all got up the next day, and we were preparing to head to the goblins lair, when the discussion of what to do with our captive came up. In the end, we decided to kill him, and Uthal caved his skull in with a hammer. We made it to the path, and we had Raya and Callie move ahead through the tree tops to scout and disable the traps. We made it to a clearing where the cave to the goblins lair was, and we discussed for a good long while about what to do with the wolves. In the end Callie and Syllin decided to go in there without making an investigation check, and they end up getting fired upon by two goblin archers. Callie manages to avoid the arrow that was shot at her, but Syllin didn't, and ended up getting KO'd instantly!


      The fight begins, and Callie is first again, so she rushes the goblins, and throws both daggers at a single gobblin and kills it. Uthal tries to sprint through the trees to make it to the last goblin, but his movement speed doesn't quite allow that. Next up is Raya, who uses one of her psionic attacks and kills the goblin. I then go over to Syllin and use cure wounds to get him out of his critical state, and of course since Vollare is a dick, I say something along the lines of, "I'm healing you now, but know that I wont reward stupidity any longer, so try to be more careful in the future," to which Syllin responds, "well I do like to fly by the seat of my pants," to which I again respond, "you'll be flying by the seat of your pants to the afterlife if you keep this shit up." All of us then just decided to go in the cave, Callie of course scouted ahead, sneaking past the kennel. She stumble across a large ravine with a bridge somewhere up high. We tell her to come back using the message cantrip, and she decides she wants to try and see if she can kill the wolves stealthily. She shoots one in the shoulder, it screams in pain, alerting the other two wolves, and they try the break their chains. The rest of us rush in there, and before we all roll initiative, and of course Callie is first, so she shoots one of the other wolves. Next of is Syllin, who shoots a fire bolt at one of the wolves that Callie attacked but it's still alive! One of the wolves manages to break free from its chains, and bites Uthals arm. Fortunately his armor class is high, so the wolf bite didn't do anything. Unfortunately Uthal is still Uthal. He uses one of his hand axes to strike the wolf biting his arm, and misses. At point blank range! The wolf of course lets go and jumps back, so Uthal uses his bonus action to throw his other hand ax and barely grazes it. So then I come in and cast fire bolt on it and kill it instantly and say, "was that so hard!?" Raya then picks up a rock with her mind and prepares to throw it. Callie and Syllin manage to kill the other wolves on their turns before they break free.


      We all enter the kennel to investigate and for a strategy, and we end up deciding to send Callie ahead and communicate with her through message again. she goes down a different path this time and finds a ledge about 10ft high. She uses her climbing gear to set up rope and pitons but we decide to leave it for later, and tell her to go see if that gobblin was still on that bridge. She rolled for perception, and rolled a 1, and doesn't notice it. When she relays that information through message, Syllin doesn't believe her (a bit of metagaming went on there x3) and decides to go over too her, because he has the second highest stealth and perception, but ends up botching the stealth check, and the goblin that was in fact, still on the bridge, ran away, and the next thing we know, Callie and Syllin are flushed out of the cave with a torrent of water. Apparently there was some kind of flood gate. However, since three of us were in the kennel, we managed to stay inside. We decided to wait there, because we figured that they'd probably send goblins to check and see what happened to the intruders. Sure enough, thats what happened. They sent two, one went walking towards the mouth of the cave, the other walked into the kennel. Fortunately all of us passed a stealth check because the goblin rolled such a low perception, and was heart broken over the death of one of the wolves. Uthal snuck up behind him, rose his hammer, and then brought it down on the goblins head and accordioned him. With the second goblin at the mouth of cave, Raya steps out of the kennel, picks up a rock with her mind, and hurls it at the last gobblin, killing it instantly. Lots of natural 20's this game xD 


      We all regrouped, and decided to climb up that ledge that Callie found. We all managed to get up, except for Uthal. When he tried, the wall crumbled, and he lost 5 Hp. After we all managed to get up, we were left at a split path. We decided to go to the right, because the left lead to the direction with the bridge. at the end of the hallway was a room, and there were about six goblins at a couple tables and around a cooking pot, but one of them was super buff. We ended up deciding to have Syllin use one of his spells to try and put them to sleep, and it worked on all but two, one regular and of course the buff one. The buff one ran up some stairs that lead to another ledge out of sight while the other goblin charged us. We were about to attack, but then the buff one held a man over the ledge, specifically the man we came to rescue, who was beaten and bruised. He made us a deal; kill their leader so he can take his place and he'll let us leave with our friend. I of course tried to negotiate for a better deal and more information, but I had shit rolls for persuasion, and since I was the only one that spoke goblin, no one else could try so we agreed to the terms.


      And that is how our first session ended! Hope you enjoyed! It was kinda long, so kudos to you if you managed to read through that x3 Hopefully it wont be too long before we can play again, but I'll be sure to put up a part two as soon as I can! Also feel free to point out any spelling mistakes or grammatical errors x3

    • If The Moon Was Made of Cheese, How Long Would It Take One Immortal Mouse To Eat It?

      So still depressed, like incredibly so, but I'm slowly getting better. Started working out again, and I'm studying for my drivers test (which I still really don't want too do, but oh well.) I really need too start writing again, but still can't find the motivation, but of course I'm still taking notes for ideas I have for my stories and what not x3


      Oh, I also changed my profile picture to one of my face. Don't really know why I decided too do that, especially considering that I look like crap right now because I haven't been taking good care of myself lately on account of my depression, but oh well. I plan on changing it again once I look less disheveled xD I really need a hair cut x_x Also my knife collection is in the background so maybe that will distract people from my face x3 I also just noticed that I have one of my nieces gifts in the case, haha. It's a 101 Dalmatians picture from her coloring book she gave me x3 


      Anyways, aside from all of that there's nothing really new to report. My cousins and I will unfortunately not be able too play DnD this weekend because one of them is going out of town for Christmas. He's our tank so we can't really play without him either :P Even though he's easily the least effective member of the party. He was fighting a goblin and decided to throw his hand axes at it, but the first one completely missed, and then he sprained his wrist on the second throw because he rolled a 1 xD Then when we were fighting some wolves, he managed too miss a wolf with his hand ax at point blank range, it was literally biting his arm! Then the wolf backed away, so he threw his other ax at it and he missed AGAIN. Then too cap it off near the end of the session, he tried to climb a ledge, but it crumbled beneath him and he lost almost half of his hit points xD Anyways, long story short, he didn't really help much x3


      Also, I figured I'd share this before someone asks: I've never celebrated Christmas, so I never really do anything this time of year. I was raised as a Jehovah's Witness, and although my father and I aren't one any more, we still respect my mother and sisters beliefs. ALSO before you ask, Jehovah's Witnesses don't celebrate Christmas because of its pagan origins. So yeah, I'd get pretty bitter about it when I was younger. I was always really jealous of my friends who got together with their families, and I was always annoyed because I wasn't allowed too watch Christmas stuff, and of course 90% of the cartoons that are on around that time are Christmas episodes/specials. My parents of course knew that we felt left out, so instead of exchanging gifts on Christmas, we would exchange gifts on my parents anniversary, which was nice~ These day's I don't get bitter about Christmas at all, but I do get a little sad though. 


      Anyways, how's everyone doing? Got any plans for the Holidays?        

    • Well.. Update I guess

      YoiteShimizu

      Sorry for not being online a lot lately (I seem to be saying that just about every update) I've been having a rough time dealing with my depression. I started teaching my niece how too play chess the other day, and I finally remembered why I don't play with her as often as I should; Every time I look at her, I see my brother.. I couldn't stop thinking about him for a few days, and I was just so depressed, and it didn't help that my girl friend wasn't online as much because she spent multiple days in a row job hunting, so I was pretty much depressed for the entire week..


      Yesterday I played DnD for the first time with all of my cousins and that was so fun, we all had a blast! However the moment I opened my lap top I got a message from my girl friend saying that she had too break up with me because her mom would kick her out otherwise.. So yeah, super depressed again.. 

    • Net Neutrality

      So I'm curious, is there anyone here who actually agrees that net neutrality should be repealed? Even if you're for net neutrality, do you know anyone who's against it? I'm just super curious about hearing the other sides argument, and the thought process behind it, because I can't for the life of me see how this is a good thing.   

    • Merry Thanksgivingmas!

      So, it's been a month since I posted anything... Whoops! Still alive, and doing well! Just writing, watching anime, doing my best to maintain friendships but failing miserably, the usual! I recently started a new medication, so now instead of shoving an injector pin into my leg every week, I now only have to go in for infusions every 8 weeks! My leg is certainly happy about that x3 I had a pretty good day yesterday~ Went over to my cousins house and shot a pellet rifle, then went to my aunts house and played a few games of chess. (lost one, won two) Anyways, how is everyone doing? If you celebrate thanksgiving, how did that go?


      I really wish I had more to tell you guys about, but my life is pretty stagnant. Aside from writing, nothings really happened xD I hope you all have a lovely day x3

    • Tokyo Ghoul Movie (Amateur) Review (SPOILERS)

      3 months ago

      YoiteShimizu

      Alrighty, I'm gonna do a review of sorts of the Tokyo Ghoul movie, so if you plan on seeing it, and don't want it spoiled, then don't read it passed the next sentence. Over all it was pretty good, a solid 7 out of 10, there was some weird direction given to some of the actors and they had to cut or add some pretty important stuff that was cut, although most were necessary to fit the time limit.


      Alright, now on to spoilers! For starters, unlike the anime, the opening scene takes place with Kaneki and Hide in Anteiku, rather than the the fight between Rize and Yamori, which felt disappointing, but understandable considering Yamori was cut out of the movie all together. Everything goes like it did in the anime though, however, when it gets to the point where Rize tries to eat Kaneki, that's when one of my minor problems with the movie show up. There is so much face licking in this movie, like, to an uncomfortable level xD A lot of stuff with tongues in general. Like when Kaneki is walking around the streets starving he has his fingers in his mouth and his tongue swirling around them, and it kinda makes it creepy that he's almost only staring at girls x3


      That brings us to Nishiki, who was primarily there just for a little action in the middle of the movie. The fight between Kaneki and Nishiki doesn't take place in a parking structure either, it takes place in Nishiki's apartment, which was an odd choice, because it doesn't really make sense for Touka to be there in order to stop Kaneki from eating Hide, and it's never explained either xD They also say that Nishiki escaped, and that he could be back for revenge, but that's pretty much where his character ends in the movie, since Tsukiyama's character was also cut. Because of this cut however, the scene where Touka's friend brings her human food too eat at Anteiku, and the following scene where she forces her food down in the bathroom pretty much pointless. Her friend in general is kinda pointless too, considering she never plays into any of Touka's decisions, and no other character mentions her. It's not even established in the movie that she's human xP


      Anyways, I forgot to mention that Ryouko and Hinami Fueguchi are already at Anteiku before Kaneki starts working there xP Anyways, the movie continues like the anime, the only difference being that Kaneki takes coffee beans to Dr. Fueguchi's grave so Hinami doesn't have to risk going outside, where he's spotted by the dorky inspector who ends up getting killed by Touka after Amon and Mado kill Ryouko. Oh yeah, they're in the movie and pretty much serve as the main antagonist's. They show up sparingly until after Nishiki is gone. Anyways, after Touka returns to Anteiku injured she and Kaneki have a training montage, after which is the final fight scenes between Touka and Mado, as well as Kaneki and Amon.


      The fight scene between Touka and Mado goes pretty much like it did in the anime, with a couple of tweaks in order to fit the location. However, the fight between Kaneki and Amon was waaaayyyy different. They made Kaneki more bad ass in the movie instead of the sniveling wimp he was in the anime x3 For starters, when Amon is driving to help Mado, Kaneki runs at his car and jumps on the hood, crushing it, causing it to flip over, and slide into what I'm guessing is some kind of theater? Anyways, the fact that Kaneki is now nothing like he was in the anime kinda undercuts his entire character in general, which is sad. But at least we get a badass fight scene out of it xD Anyways, after the fight is pretty much over, and Kaneki has Amon pinned and is overwhelmed with hunger, he does this weird thing where he shakes his head back and forth laughing manically that made literally the entire audience laugh, I have no clue what the director was thinking xD Anyways, after that Kaneki goes to get Touka and Hinami and the movie ends with the gang all doing their thing at Anteiku x3


      Like I said, the movie was pretty good. Questionable decisions were made, but over all I think it was worth the 2 hour drive x3

    • Quick RWBY Question...

      YoiteShimizu

      Why didn't RNJR just take the train to Mistral that Oscar took instead of walking? I guess you could say that they wanted to help all the towns along the way with their Grimm problems or something, but time was kinda of the essence, and if Haven fell in the time it took to get there, even more people would have died. If I remember correctly weren't they only going to Haven to warn them, or am I remembering this wrong? If that was the case they could have taken the train to warn Haven, and just walked back making sure to help the towns along the way with their Grimm problems.

      Woot woot! Four more days until the Tokyo Ghoul movie! Super hyped~ I really hope it's good, otherwise I'd feel kinda bad about driving 2 hours away to go see it xD I also just realized that the new pokemon game is coming out on the same day as the justice league movie. The area around Walmart is gonna be super busy during the midnight release (assuming anyone goes to the Justice league one in my area) x3 but that also means that the In-N-Out in that area is gonna be packed xP

I think of it as a leveling system, minus the perks that usually come with a level up. I could be mistaken, but i haven't really found any purpose for it

    How you doing?

    | Asked by: Jianju 3 months ago

    I'm doing fairly well! The charger for my laptop broke so I've been without a way to get on the internet, which sucks, but at the same time I got so much writing done, so that's a plus, haha. Not super excited for this week though xP 

    I used too love chocolate! Specifically dark chocolate. So good~ Can't eat most sweets these days though. There's actually a laundry list of things that I can't eat these days, haha. Don't want to risk flaring up my condition. I can still eat it, just in very small quantities, but what's the point in teasing myself by only eating a chunk or two? I'll just end up wanting more, haha. So I try to avoid it as much as possible, so I'm not tempted x3

    Hmmmm. I think it's safe to say that they'll probably go with the JauneXRuby route. They're on the same team now after all, meaning that they'll be spending some time together. Also, I'd have to imagine that Jaune would be distraught over the loss of Pyrrah, and Ruby being who she is would probably attempt to comfort him in some way, causing him to possibly turn his attention to her. I'm probably way off base though, haha. As to whether or not Jaune will get Pyrrah's shield, I hope so. I feel like some sort of costume change in order to keep her in his memory would be awesome. 

    Thanks for the concern, I'll be sure to check it out momentarily~ I'm currently on the road to recovery though, so no need to worry. Doctors said I'll have flares like this about once a year for the rest of my life. Just happy this years is out of the way~
