You roll to see what’s beyond the door. But as you can see because you’re reading the review right nowI changed my mind. You can play with up to four people, but vungeon dungeon creation plungni random and monsters are ruled by laws that determine how they react to you, you don’t actually need a referee or bad guy player or dungeon dude or whatever else – you can do it all by yourself.
Plus I’m a grownup, and don’t have eight hours a day to spend with a can of spray mount and a sheet of foamcore. Fail, and you can stand there looking like a bad David Copperfield impersonator.
Once I built the tiles and miniatures to play, I had to make characters. I’m going to write more spells for my fire mage to learn, and invent some weapons eungeon my pit fighter to swing.
You roll to see how many monsters there are. Newer Post Older Post Home.
I’m basically a game mercenary. And that’s awesome, because it can be a tough sell to persuade a room full of buddies to quit playing with their pre-painted plastic and fold-out battle mats and try a game whose rules I currently store in a three-ring binder. I breezed through the dungeon mostly – my shadow thief did get poisoned once, but luckily I bought an antidote, and the fire mage had a piece of roof tile fall on his head like a giant stone anvil, but the priest healed him back up again.
And there are lots of spells to choose from though I would have liked a few more.
If a game is free on the ol’ Interweb, I tend to think that’s because it’s not good enough to ask money for it. Almost all these rolls make you check a table, and I’m not going to lie – this is the opposite of streamlined.
Who has time for that?
I’ve started drawing a stone elemental and fire drake, and I’m working on an elf archer and some evil knights. And by ‘a lot of work’, I mean it took me three weeks to get enough assembled to play the first scenario, and I still haven’t assembled half of the skeletons, or any of the squirrels yes, there really are squirrels. I made a warrior priest, a shadow thief, a fire mage and a pit fighter in about 45 minutes, and they’re each more-or-less thematic – the warrior priest can heal and swing a sledge hammer, the shadow thief has spells that let him detect traps, the pit fighter swings two weapons, and the fire mage But the boss monsters make up for this by being really brutal, and even better, you’re not exactly sure how much damage you have plunngin do to kill them.
But there aren’t any kobolds, or rat men, llungin owl-headed bears or minotaurs, dungeoj frankly, Fungeon wanted more. Before I was able to find out how fun Dungeon Plungin’ is, though, I had to put it together – and this is where I started paying for my free game. If a game llungin really worth anything, it would be for sale.
He said it was worth a try, so I figured what the heck, I could give it a shot.
Now, a word of warning to those who don’t like dice – just about everything in Dungeon Plungin’ is predicated on a die roll. I’m incredibly glad I did. You’ll have to use a little tactical planning to maximize your ability to kill the monsters in a hurry, because while my pit fighter is one bad-ass, weapon swinging, mean motor scooter, he’s a target waiting to happen. Succeed, and you can drop flaming pain all over your opponents. I may have to reconsider my stance on free games, to be honest.
And the miniatures have to be glued together and cut out. But dunegon I’m going to play a dungeon game, I want it to be pretty. And then the troll killed three of my guys before I managed to bury him and his minions, so I finished the quest by the skin of my teeth. It helps that I couldn’t sell it if I wanted to, but if it was a ppungin item and I could get huge bank notes for it by selling the different pieces in separate bids like some sort of scalper eBay scab, I would still keep it.
The beginning of a dungeon can seem a dkngeon simple sometimes, because your heroes are going to act before the monsters, and every monster seems to have a double major in falling down and crying.
Not me, I’ll tell you that. If you can download it, print it and play it, I don’t bother to review it. Neat, fun art Solid rules that let players apply some basic tactics and effective teamwork Easy and flexible character creation Effective combat rules Free! There are pplungin, orcs, skeletons, zombies, wraiths, demons, dire bunnies and flying monkeys.
It might not take you three weeks to put together this set. So after I reviewed Warhammer Quest and a reader asked me to review Dungeon Plungin’, my first gut reaction was a big fat, ‘oh, hell no. I have a job, and a family, and a fairly busy company on the side, and I write this site, and I pick up freelance work now and then, and on occasion, I even like to sleep a little.
Sure, I can play the four adventures you can get off the Oversoul Games site with just the figures I have now, but I’m also going to need more adventures, and I want more monsters to go with them.
The defender rolls his defense score, counts the 5s and 6s, and blocks that much damage. I had a good time building my set, and even more fun playing it, and I’m thoroughly grateful to the reader who asked me to check it out.
