Four Pagodas of Kwantoom

My love of Kabuki Kaiser’s solo D&D masterpiece “Mad Monks of Kwantoom” isn’t much of a secret. So when I saw Tim Hartin of Paratime Design playing a game of Ruins of the Undercity and posting his results to Google+, I just needed to pull out Mad Monks again and play through a few more of the 1001 Pagodas of Doom.

And the real secret of the Mad Monks of Kwantoom is that the stuff you do between expeditions to the 1001 Pagodas is usually even cooler (discovering cool stores, dealing with strange random events in town, and acquiring new missions).

The basic conceit of the adventuring locations is there is an island covered in a massive collection of multi-level pagodas in varying shape and condition that you explore. These four pagodas were rolled up (and stocked) purely using random tables in the book with a little twisting and bending for “best effect” based on my rolls.

Unlike my previous play through of the Pagodas of Doom, I didn’t log my adventures through these ones. I found that last time I played the game I spent more time writing logs than actually playing – so this time the only artifact left over from the play is this map of the pagodas that were explored.

The pagodas in this map are tightly linked, seeming to be one massive structure made up of a collection of smaller turrets, chambers, and grand halls – in one case two structures are linked externally but not internally, and the second floor of one is actually reached through the other.

It is an architectural mess – the kind of thing demons and mad-men would build.

Of Dice and Men (Documentation & Etudes)

Cet ouvrage raconte l’histoire de Donjons & Dragons, mais aussi celle des joueurs américains, de JDR et de loisirs voisins. C’est aussi l’histoire personnelle des relations de l’auteur avec le jeu de rôle. Tout cela est réparti sur seize chapitres, en ordre plus ou moins chronologique, mais en se focalisant à chaque fois sur un thème. Des textes en italique racontent des exemples de parties du point de vue des personnages.
