Another story from my Dungeons and Dragons game. This game the players went to Gautor, or what we ended up calling, "Magic North Korea," because it was a military state with a civilian prison population. This video is the final of a four part arc of the W.O.R.S.T. campaign. Hope you guys enjoy!

C'mon Puffin, you know you can't just give the players a war machine. They'll think its a trap. You got to give it to some henchmen and pretend that it's to set up to a later scene where they'll have to fight it, and it'd TOTALLY RUIN YOUR PLOT if they just attacked right now. They'll be rolling initiative before you've finished describing the scene

Seeing as they kept leaving that guy's characters behind I'm kinda understanding why he kept being unable to make all the rescheduled games :^).

Hi Ben, I really enjoy your work, so before youtube takes away the community captions, I took the liberty to go around your channel and add spanish translations to a bunch of your videos, mainly the DnD stories. I didn't get them all, but I finished this storyline along with the Mournblade one, and also a bunch of miscelanious videos. I hope they're of your liking.

We agree to call it Fantasy North Korea. Calls it Magic North Korea the rest of the video.

Bad Dming Puffin Forest. Can’t have magic internet but throwing a random car in the middle of quote “medieval setting” you home brewed is ok 5:02? Many people including most in my current group have a problem with Magic Tek as a concept. It simply doesn’t fit most medieval fantasy games, and it’s introduction would have world changing consequences that force it to often be the centerpiece of a campaign rather than an add on. You needed to find a way to integrate it without shoving it down your players throats. Maybe have a hidden ancient monorail under the desert that the players stumble upon and “magic North Korea” was the site of an ancient advanced race who developed said monorail. Maybe the loss of magic was them trying to get it to start up again repeating their ancestor’s folly. Magic Tek is best handled as an add on like Dwemer way from Skyrim. It’s there; it’s dangerous; and it doesn’t need to hijack the story to tell it’s own.

If that was the thief character that had the tough work schedule, and it looks like it was, another thing you could have done is have him be part of a Thieves Guild. He keeps on getting called away on missions for the guild, which is why he's so rarely around. That "part of a guild/magic academy/serving in a country's army etc etc" could probably work for any of the other classes too.

I totally get you on the war machines, but I know my players heads.... they become suspicious when you just give them things like that, cause people still seem to have this notion that GM's are out to screw over and kill the players.

Frankly this might be hindsight but Puffin, ya could have had the player who was in an out on 1v1 sessions letting him set up the castle and drain magic for his own goals... to at least keep the guy involved ... and when it comes to new material, do ask the other players if this material would be interesting for them in game, if they don't wanna use it, build a game around that material separately for another time ...

I was expecting Ottie Otterton as the real villain. He used his lucrative fishing business to fund the construction of a moving fortress that saps magic from a region and stores it. When he has enough, he will use it to re-open a gate to the dream realms and return home. If the players get trapped in there, now they will have to play by the rules and whims of the Dream Realms.

At least the bad guy wasn't a clone or simulacrum of one of the party members. Yes, that was a Pluto Nash reference. Yes, I still want a refund for my movie ticket, Eddie. YES, I STILL HAVE THE TICKET, EDDIE.

Our groups best 'Let's mess up the GM's planning': Every single clue was leading the group to the 'town on the left'. They decided instead to go to the 'town on the right'. The GM looked at them, closed his book, and said "Well, that's it for tonight. I'll see everyone next time." They were shocked that he had nothing 'planned'. We still have smaller versions of this scenario happen every so often (all clues lead to the jail's dungeon, so we head to the prince's castle instead).
