And Now For A Word From Our Sponsors...
A couple weeks ago at PaizoCon UK, Richard Pett ran a playtest of the Brandon Hodge Blight add-on adventure The Crooked Nail. In support of that playtest, Brandon made a promo video for Rich to show his group during the playtest. I just saw the video myself for the first time today and felt compelled to share it with you, our loyal backers, in return for all your support (though it could possibly also be because of Brandon's uncannily hypnotic gaze).
Consider yourself forewarned.
- 1. Brandon is terrifying.
- 2. His adventure is terrifying.
- 3. Where was he when he filmed this video?!?!?!
We'd like to thank the playtesters who endured this abomination at PaizoCon UK. Richard included a fine epitaph in memory of his playtesters in the credits.
What's that you say? Did the playtest result in a TPK?
No, no, silly hypothetical questioner; there was no TPK. It was the playtesters being memorialized. All of the PCs survived, but the playtest group had a 100% mortality rate...I mean, if you consider complete brain death and/or endless catatonic chanting to an unknowable entity to be a form of death. I suppose it depends on how fine you slice your definitions.
Anyway, a good time was had by all, I'm sure. And I heard that Richard even ascended to the next rank within his order...Third Degree Hooded Master of Chaos or some such thing.
Alright, well that's it for now. Until next time, stay out of Richard's basement. No seriously, you don't want to go in that guy's basement. Just don't.
Update! We have just received information on the location where Brandon shot that video. Apparently he used his new baby's nursery for filming. So now that the mystery has been solved, I think we can all sleep a lot easier at night.
