Now that we are finally getting settled back into our old routine, that means that gaming weekends can finally commence…again! There is nothing better than gathering around the table with your friends, some snacks, some yarn & a good game.
Now I missed out on one of my favorites because there was a very important meeting I had to attend (mother-daughter Hobby Lobby trip), but we did get something else started once I got back. After a few months of playing the first adventure in Pathfinder the Card Adventure, we finally settled on our characters + builds to start an actual campaign. No more starting over. And we don’t have to stare at Jubrayl Vhiski’s ugly face again, if we don’t want to.
We’ve got a pretty interesting makeup for our group on this journey:
- Kyra (cleric) – Me
- Lem (bard) – Gaming Buddy #1
- Merisiel (rogue) – Gaming Buddy #2
- Amiri (barbarian) – Josh
- Valeros (fighter) – Gaming Buddy #3
What’s your favorite class/role in the group?
After months of testing out both the cleric & the paladin, I decided to give my undivided attention to Kyra during our first campaign. Either way I knew I would be a healer of sorts & female, my two typical choices in characters. But after reading others’ adventures & claiming that a cleric must always be in their group my decision was made.
Our first adventure against our familiar villain went as normal. Explore. Battle. Jubrayl runs to hide. Explore. Battle. Win. But the second part of this adventure was uncharted territory for us. A new villain & henchmen. New locations. New closing rules. Holy freak was I not prepared for this place!
Let’s just say that we were on the edge of our seats in this down-to-the-wire battle to see who would become victorious. All that we had left was a single turn each with too many locations still open. And with every card turn I closed my eyes, afraid that the villain would still be there when it came to my final turn. Luckily someone else was able to sneak up on him, leaving us to temporarily close the locations & pray that we could defeat him this last time. And *BAM*, those prayers were answered when our dear rogue demolished him with some epic roles!
Do you prefer to faceroll your way to victory or have a nailbiter of a battle?
I’m quickly starting to see where Kyra is weak in some ways & a beast in others. And seeing that there are some challenges & close calls makes me love this game even more. Things get boring when it seems all easy mode, which is why this game is more than likely #2 on my list for game nights.
Just one more villain in this adventure before we finally earn a feat to make our characters stronger with more than just an upgrade of gear. Hopefully I can be more useful in this battle & get that feat point I so desperately need. Wish me luck!
