The Lookthrough Skin

This symbiont clings to the wearer's skin and normally is invisible. Only when affected by pain and some magical effects it reacts.

It changes colour where hit

1. Red
2. Blue
3. Green
4. Yellow
5. Purple
6. Black
7. White
8. Orange

and emissions a substance

1. Powder
2. Liquid
3. Steam
4. Antsized humanoids

If the wearer loses a limb (even head) this regenerates and the rest of the body is cloned in a coloured cocoon. There are 2 skins now.
If the wearer loses an hand or foot or eye (or horn) this is engulfed in parts of the symbiont and slowly grows to gigantic size, steered by a will of its own. They can float.

Flächenschaden (auch Ringen/Festhalten): Nur Geschicklichkeit, nicht normale Rüstung schützt davor. Die getragene Rüstungsklasse wird allerdings vom Geschicklichkeitsbonus abgezogen.

PtA: The Dickinsons: Ciaran saves the house (Episode 4)

Scene 1: Ciaran is still locked in the trunk of the car. Noone is able to open it.
Scene 2: The family drives the car to Anthony's house. But instead of Anthony an Italian, named Antonio, that looks a lot like Anthony, opens and helps the family with a metal cutter to open the trunk. Britney flirts with him and ask for help against the porn ring. He is interested, but Dick drags Britney in the car. She writes her phone number with lipstick against the window.
One question remains: is Anthony schizophrenic or is Antonio someone else?
Scene 3: The family gathers in the house. There is a fight between Dick and Jennifer. Dick tells that he will travel without his wife. And she actually supports him. Jackie O. gets super mental from prospect of the trip and it seems quite likely that he did consume amphetamines. Ciaran is able to stop him. Dick tells the family that he will go with his male kids and that Jennifer has to be out of the house by the time he returns. She asks him for money, but he denies.
Scene 4: The Dickinsons gather at the airport for the trip to start. There is another fight between Dick and Jennifer. She wants to get him back and is willing to drag him off to the toilets. He tells her to let him be and best kill herself. She really takes his advice serious and tells that she plans a drug part in the house that will only leave ruins and that she wants to kill herself via overdose during the party.
Scene 5: Ciaran and Jennifer are in the living room. She thinks about making the phone calls to get the party started, when Ciaran confronts her. He tells her to relax and that he wants to help her and that he will do everything to get a connection between them. Jennifer feels provoked by that and tells him that he should shoot up, if he is really serious, because otherwise he would never understand and that is just pretending to sacrifice something for her.
Exactly that moment Alex, Jennifer's dealer, walks in with a group of thugs. Alex wants the money she owes him, she tries to convince him that smashing the house in a great party would be worth her debt.
About the same time Anthony shows up. Ciaran is able to convince Alex together with Anthony that they should take Jennifer out of the house and make her pay the money back herself. Ciaran succeeds with Anthony's help and the thugs drag Jennifer out of the house.

Scene 1: Krishna comes to the house to summon grandmother's dead husband (Dino or Aleister) via ouija board.

She goes to the squat where the rehearsal room is and after encountering some punks meets Alex, Jennifer's dealer and band mate.

Ciaran listens in on Jennifer on the phone and figures out what is going on.
Scene 3: Britney leaves her purse on the couch back home and Jackie O. finds the pack and puts it in grandma's medicine storage. Grandma takes it shortly after. It seems to be amphetamines and she is able to get out of her wheelchair with it and gets Ciaran's scooter from in front of house, riding off.
Jennifer notices something is going on, but she is not able to figure out that Britney tricked her. At the same time Dick, is not able to hide the fact from her that grandma is on drugs. Britney tells Dick that her mother was asking her to get drugs, despite her promising to stop.
Scene 4: Ciaran, Britney and Dick look for grandma with the family car. They find her a few blocks away, stuck in the mud, but still speeding along. Ciaran is able to take the keys away from her, but in the following struggle, she locks him in the trunk with the car and scooter keys. The family takes grandma in the car and hearing Ciaran pegging to be let out of the trunk, Britney tries to open the lock with a kick.

Scene 7: Stephen, Dick's social worker friend shows up in the house for some tough love. Jennifer makes it clear, that she expects Dick to get the contradicting promises to her and Jacky O. sorted out. Dick tells Stephen that he has to do the vacation to Jersey for one week to sucessfully get Jennifer over her addiction and that there is a boarding school where Jacky O. would get a chance, he will not have in Blackpool. Stephen buys in and gives him the week. His broken leg should actually make it easier for Dick to get a job, Stephen tells, because there are special quotas for handicapped people.

Howl, you Old School Bastard!

Zwillingsseen Hexcrawl: Session 1: Großwall


Just a little chat log from after the game, to a friend:
Basically they were in a town called Großwall and approached by beautiful girl in an inn, that said her father had disappeared.
the dice told me that she was beautiful and VERY tall, when the players asked. not preplanned at all. so they went with her to look for him at the market where he told her, he would go
but it was night already and they got attacked on a square by 6 vigilantes.
the party killed all of them, except the leader whom they kept as hostage
but they were stupid enough to tell the guy, he should lead them to the place where he had found gems.
so he took them to his neighbourhood, getting them into an ambush
that's where Rapunzel (the male navigator prodigy) was killed by a lucky hit during the swordfight and the beautiful girl got stabbed as well. Hel's and Oli's characters could only flee and had to leave her behind, not sure if she was alive or dead (she was actually dead) and the slum mob chased them out
so they returned to the inn covered in blood, with stuff they had looted, but without the girl or their strongest guy and decided to go to bed... the barkeeper told them, he had warned them
I admit: the text is very chaotic, but deserves to be stored somewhere anyways.

I will need to tone down the damage low hit dice enemies do on a critical hit, because this was already the 2nd PC in 2 sessions that got killed by a critical out of the blue.

All AD&D Monster Stats

While going through my AD&D1-Monster-Manual-Reprint and figuring out, how to use the stats exactly for my very own Old School Bastard (a roll under system), I came across this thread on Dragonsfoot.

It's a nice spreadsheet of all AD&D-Monsters - supposedly. I obviously don't know all of them. But great work, unknown typist! Thanks a lot!

There are more than 4700 Monster entries in the spreadsheet!
