I watched the one where you staggered into a Silverquick surprise attack without having rested your party, and it was kinda hilarious. 😂 And while you keep apologizing for your English, it’s a damn sight better than my French (someday, we’ll get to visit France again). So kudos, I hope you are having fun doing these things!

Lol I was too actually. 

He was trying to play through it and keep his commentary going while playing that... and the last thing you should do in these is get distracted or you'll get wrecked. I think everyone that's ever played my modules was going... 

"yup, you're in for it now." 

And he kept doing it too. He'd be running his commentary which would distract him... and then just walk right into things. The rest of us were going "Yup that's gonna leave a mark". 

He even did it on the traps too. He forgot to go stealth in a hallway so he was in normal movement. There's a pop up telling you the ceiling is unstable in the area, so while he's reading the pop up... he walks his guys right into the traps anyway... boom... down they went. 

Lol and then the Final Encounter he gets the pop up "Boxed text" telling him what's in the room ahead but he tried to read it while his guys are moving and ended up right in the worst possible spot you can be in to start that encounter. I was surprised he pulled it out, but he did in the end. 

But yeah his English is better than he thinks. I should have warned him since he was French to hit the pause button when he got the Timed Lore plate activators. It just never occurred to me that would be a problem even though I knew he was French.

Ahah Yes it's one of a thing - usually i'm distracted but while streaming it's very much more + streaming in english isn't in my habits so it even worse.. That + silverquick surprises xD But yeah it's fun.

Also this is for sure now that a CODM (with mode from zappa) will happen in the late 2021 and a CODM 2 (without mode) after that. With a break also between the 2. (And wishing that maybe another DLC would be on the table at this point.) So if you wanna join the crazyness you will be able soon :)

But still .. History won't forget that the crew did The module no matter distractions and monsters and... evil text to read. xD Still don't know how but they survive !

Press spacebar for lore text! You can pause it just like combat (and you won't be attacked while reading it).

Oh Yeah ! I'll try to think about it next time ! Thanks :)

Also here is the Deacrist Entry for the contest : https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pX8bNYD1n3I


EDIT : After trying the thing.. It's not working. At least for me pausing the game isn't stopping the popup to disapear.

Yay that will be fun to watch :) Do we have these uploaded somewhere so the community can play them as well?

Woo hoo that was fun, and you were close to doing it all without wiping!

Not sure why that skarn ghoul attacked you right at the start. I looked at the map and I don't see why he was just walking around. He should be underground waiting for a trigger.

(Side note: you didn't start the skarn fight in the camp because you listened to your people! If you try to loot the chest two of them jump out, and there's nothing great in the chest.)

Edit: There was also a workbench outside with some flash arrows/bolts on them that are good for the final battle. Also near the bench is a hidden cure wounds/scorching ray in a tree trunk. The ray wouldn't have helped but the cure wounds scroll might have.

Hey there ! thanks for the kind words Berengar ! Hope to cya for the next contest :P
here are 2 others videos about the contest // Mostly in french but with a bit of english.

- Remapping of the Groumph1er entry's As he was rookie with mapping its map was little empty. though there was a story. Initially he would make an underground tavern but It won't be anymore for the final build. I still kept the idea of the room purpuse to make a "underground temple" https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZvNNJtn4eNk

- SirMadness Mapping - This one is my own map for the contest. As organizer of course i was not involved in the random draw but after the contest closed, i'll add this map to the set. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BPGPrbUTko4

Those 2 videos show mapping only with bit of talk what/why i'm doing though it's mostly in french. However it can give a bit of something seeing how it evolves. Have fun :)

Next CODM (2) will happen this year 2021. though it's related to the release date of the DLC so for now - wait and see for exact date/ruleset - but it will happen. I can also say that the rulset will change a little to add "A specific Theme + new maps only (100% created from scratch for this contest) and few details" the "details" won't be mandatory but strongly recommanded. (like : the map must possess a campfire) this kind of things makes maps easier to manage and maybe more helpfull for new creators. I'll try to keep them low amount though.
