Strickland5 is looking to roll a crit!

Recommended Posts

Just hit level 7 and I think it is time to incorporate some Titansgrave and Critical Role into a challenge so let's do this! 

 

Titansgrave is Wil Wheaton's RPG show on Geek & Sundry, and Critical Role is a D&D game run and played by voice actors (also on Geek &Sundry). I enjoy them both as they tell cool stories and entertain me ... plus make me want to play/run more games! 

 

Quest 1 -  Umm ... I just rolled a 1.

tumblr_nrsqfy1x671uz17elo3_r1_500.gif

Seems I've still got some hip/knee issues going on ... to fight this I'm going to incorporate more stretching into my daily activities.

 

So 3 time a week I'm going to spend 15+ minutes stretching 

 

3 / week = A

2 / week = B

1 / week = C

0 / week = F

 

 

Quest 2 - I am the storm's fury!

tumblr_nrffqnoXp71qf2armo1_r1_500.gif

 

This is all about speed work. Once a week I'm going to do do a fartlek - aka speed work. A sample of a fartlek is something like this sprint all out from one light pole to the next, jog to the corner, give a medium effort for a couple blocks, jog between four light poles and sprint to a stop sign, and so on, for a set total time or distance. For me I'll try to add these sort of variables into a 4-5 mile run on Monday

 

I'm looking to do 6 (aka 1 per week) so scoring is easy enough 

6 = A

5 = B 

4 = C 

3-0 = F

 

Quest 3 - I Encourage Violence

tumblr_nrt37sPh2H1uz17elo1_500.gif

No literally! Geez guys!

 

Feels like I'm losing some of my muscle gains so I'm going to incorporate a work day workout. Whenever I go to the bathroom I'll do 1 set of 10 of a body weight exercise. Exercises will rotate between bathroom visits so muscles not to get overly fatigued and allow for variety. Thinking Pushup /  Squat / Dips / 30 second plank

tumblr_nrevozdJJX1r9iwxmo6_250.gif tumblr_nrevozdJJX1r9iwxmo3_r1_250.gif

 

I've been itching to write a RPG adventure so I'm going to use this challenge to do just that! Not sure what the setting or system will be but that'll be part of the process and what I have to figure out!

 

This is all or nothing ... so yeah good times! I'll be doing this in a google doc which I'll link once I've started and occasionally post snippets here for those who don't want to look at the doc.

Sweet plan!  This in particular sounds like a great idea.  What a good way to work this in so you can get it done.  Smart!

I do bootcamp/TRX most mornings but they don't focus as much on strength as they used to.

Hmmm, wasted some time on geek and sundry, should it out when I have more free time.  Nice goals and theme!

 

I usually listen to Critical Role at work as I crunch through design stuff ... the occasional laughing often confuses my coworkers :)

So I've written a few NPC descriptions/thoughts to use. Some might get used many might not. I know they read very x is y z but they're starter points with rough

 

Amber Lerke is elven woman with a unkempt appearance, as though she'd seen more time in the wild than a city. She wears leather armor and carries a well loved elven long bow though a long sword rides upon her hip. She is often seen with a massive wolf named Enryn.

 
Anarifer is a rather emaciated minotaur as once massive limbs appear to have lost all their muscle. Standing easily over 7’ tall and covered from head to toe in light brown fur with have bull-like heads and horns.
 
Celuthel is a mouse of a fellow with a messy red hair and green eyes. He wears modest wizardly robes and wields a quarterstaff.
 
Erys Astleys has a round face, with blonde-brown hair and hazel eyes. She wears plate mail and wields a battle and shield. Everything about her seems to say authority despite being just over five feet tall.
 
Faolan is a human male with sun bronzed skin, black hair and grey-blue eyes. He appears be in the prime of his life - early to mid twenties if you have to guess. His eyes have an obvious intelligence. From the scars you can see as well as his general size, calloused hands etc, you would guess him to be a warrior of some sort.
 
Gabriel BrokenShield is an older human in fit physical condition, many think too old to be Captain of the Guard but none who've challenged him keep that opinion after the challenge is over.  He fought in the war but speaks little of it unless asked directly. Gabriel is commonly seen in a plate corselet with chain mail underneath.  His weapon of choice is a long sword he's used since before the war known as Dragon's Fire.
 
Keth is of typical goblin height of three and a half feet tall and weighing in at all of forty-five pounds soaking wet. Where the goblin scout differs from the usual goblin is his coloring - his skin is an ashen grey with black spots. His black hair is braided and typically tied back. Keth wears stained black leather armor and  carries a wicked looking pair of short swords along with a well crafted short bow. A large black worg often accompanies the goblin, on many occasions the beast wears a saddle.
 
Mesym Rysell has matted blonde hair and light blue eyes, and a stand nearly seven feet tall. He wears plate mail and wields a wicked looking Lochaber axe.
 
Quinton is short fella with a big smile and often with wild, multi-colored hair . He is the quarter master of the guard and a talented alchemist too.

So 3 time a week I'm going to spend 15+ minutes stretching 

 

3 / week = A

2 / week = B

1 / week = C

0 / week = F

Did you know that I'm a weirdo obsessed with mobility? Because I totally am. So, if you ever want me to help you inflict torture upon yourself (in the form of ideas and use of mobility devices) you just say the word. MOBILITY! 

 

Love the rest of your goals, too!  The bathroom break one is very cool - very frequency method of you.  Muy bien, muy bien.

mobility is definitely something I need to work out ... running is good but being able to move afterwards is also good :)

Thanks, the bathroom one is a riff on something I saw on Art of Manliness or some similar site.

I got a few module ideas written down

Currently I’m thinking of a game where the PCs get caught up in a local happenings. The local thief’s guild has a new person coming into town who looks like one of the PCs (selected at random) BUT said thief is known to be coming so the local guard is waiting for him/her … aka a mistaken in identity and the PCs have to clear a member of their merry band. In the city people going missing - mostly lower class/poor folks and the occasional thief - and are turning up a day or two later dead. This is where the PCS get roped in as the guild wants to hire the PCs to investigate things. I’m thinking this will involve some investigation/divination and a short “dungeon crawl” through the old city below the city. This all leads to "who done it".

Depends on your RPG history to be honest, I'm always a fan of Discworld/old school Nintendo RPGs where everything is a loose play on words.

Haha! Good times indeed!

I hadn't done any exercise between 1990 and 2014. My definition of good times has certainly changed a bit in the last 14 months or so.
