MocOlympics Round 4: L.C.V. vs. Ian Spacek - D&D
About this creation

My fourth entry in the 2014 MocOlympics, in bracket four, against the infamously talented Ian Spacek. The assigned category is "Bored Game," a category which called Dungeons & Dragons to mind for me. D&D is a interesting board game in that unlike games like Monopoly, the board is infinitely customizable. Whether the players rely solely on their imagination, a bare grid, printed grids, or elaborate models, the game is always different. My interpretation is of either a purely imagination based game, or a well-detailed model.



Every dungeon needs a treasure - and every Dungeon Master will hide this treasure under toxic mushrooms. It's an unwritten but inflexible rule.



Our valiant barbarian demonstrates his brawn over brains mentality by charging a gargantuan black dragon.



Elven archers prefer to stay back, however. Much less risky.



The rogue swordsman contemplates his sneakiest options.



Yet the ranger is bemused, having knowledge of dragon weaknesses in his repertoire. (Kudos to Tyler for some of the design on this guy and the barbarian, I partially rebuilt these guys since I thought they suited the build.)



The dungeon corridors opened into this subterranean cavern.



On the other side of the lake, bones of past adventurers lie amongst the stalagmites.



The black dragon spews acid - 20d4!



The curving path from above.

Definitely a fun build, thanks for the cool category judges. Best of luck Ian - though judging by your last entry I might need it more!

Thanks! I sad to hear you haven't DM'D in a while, it's absolutely amazing. Pathfinder is basically a remastered version of D&D 3.5 Ed. Your ideas are so original man, I never even thought of them myself! My players are not anything to brag about. They are three friends of mine. A dwarven cleric, a fearsome Half-Orc barbarian and a rouge/sorcerer Dragonborn. If you liked D&D you will absolutely love Pathfinder. Thanks a ton for your recommendations and feedback! Sounds like fun encounters and tasks to play!

Hey, remember me! I need your help! I'm having a Pathfinder (A medieval fantasy tabletop) RPG session this Friday (Iam the game master). I have been running out of ideas lately, and I really want to make this session original and cool. Since all of us love Medieval fantasy and Rpg's, can you help me out with sidequests and encounters? They are level 3 and are currently on a dwarven kingdom. P

Quoting ~Elduin (Andrew Alex.) Hey, remember me! I need your help! I'm having a Pathfinder (A medieval fantasy tabletop) RPG session this Friday (Iam the game master). I have been running out of ideas lately, and I really want to make this session original and cool. Since all of us love Medieval fantasy and Rpg's, can you help me out with sidequests and encounters? They are level 3 and are currently on a dwarven kingdom. P
Oh geez, been a while since I'd DM'd! Not sure how close Pathfinder is to what I've played, but if it's anything like v.3.5 I'll share my thoughts. Sidequests typically come it a few forms - kill quests, fetch quests, and escort quests. Kill quests: Basically, just take out some monster or a number of monsters. Hunting goblins that terrorize the town, cleaning out the dire rats that infest the tavern, assassinating the rogue that stole the bard's lute - all sorts of options there. Fetch quests: Here you have to find something, and often deliver it as well. This is a good way to advance players into the areas you want them to be in, as they'll be too busy finding clues and thinking about where something's hidden to rebel against your railroading. Whether it's collecting taxes for the Dwarf king, finding the innkeeper's daughter's lost ring, or returning that lute you took from the rogue, fetch quests are a good way to mix in some mystery. Escort quests: These are the drama builders. You need to protect the queen as she travels back to her castle, while a powerful coalition plots her assassination. The great thing is, you play the character they're escorting, so you can through in all sorts of fun things that make the PCs wonder if they're in danger of failure. Having them be injured and require a stay at a shady inn, having them captured, or having them run off in a fit of insanity can spice things up. Hopefully this helps to give you some ideas for what you can do for Friday. I can't say exactly what will go over best since I don't know your players, but these general frameworks can really make things fun without necessitating a huge backstory, and can be easily fit into any campaign. You might have something involving a dwarven artifact that must be returned to the fortress, or the PCs might find a wounded elf that they need to rescue from the abusive dwarves. The possibilities are endless!

I've never done a D&D encounter like this, but it looks crazy awesome! (Note to self: Write D&D campaign that can accommodate an encounter of such magnitude)

Awesome work on the monster and the bridge. Water seems a bit flat considering the action going on, but I can't complain too much.

After a year's wait, the pictures from that one party you went to, finally arrived! Apparently the whole deal was held like a light-year or so away from Earth, so it could not have been done before... But it was fun at the celebration, right? http://www.mocpages.com/moc.php/407296

An elegant, well built creation! But I have to agree with Chris' comment, it lacks a little of the material used in a RPG like dice, screen, character sheets... Too bad you stop here, but maybe next year? :-)

  October 28, 2014
Man this is a great build! I think if you would have included some of the items needed to actually play the game (20 sided dice, DMs screen, some character sheets... bag of Doritoes and 2 liter of Mt. Dew) you might have pulled this one off. Great entry and thanks for all your awesome entries! ~Chris.

Hehe sorry I liked this twice I loved this creation! :D by the way about the character.. Hehe no Luke, I tried to be a bit more original hehe.. His name is.. "Raythron" you won't Belive me.. But my physical science teacher is a fan of all this kind of medieval fantasy stuff.. And I acually work with him in games! He's the best teacher ever.. He's a boy, that's maybe why.. Hehe yep I'll let you know when I post it! I'll give you credit for inspiration..

Quoting Mark McPeek A fantastic entry, Luke! The dragon in particular is a real eye-catcher, as are all those 1x2 trans-blue bricks. However, Ian's entry was just too good. He gets my vote. Thanks a lot for competing! You put on quite the show and it was a real pleasure to judge you!
Cheers Mark, hat's off for some fine judging this season. You've really been on point with this business, I appreciate the quick results!

Quoting matt rowntRee The build is exquisite! The detailing and feel are subtle and clever. I felt that there was something missing however. Then I remembered the dice and I couldn't stop thinking about them. It was a daring risk to go with D&D and unfortunately, up against Ian's Clue, I don't feel that it paid off. Still a great build but my vote goes to Ian.
Thanks Matt, I agree that it would've been neat to include some accessories. Sadly it wasn't possible at this scale - you might've been onto something when you suggested maxifigs. ;)

Quoting Matthew Oh Well done LCV, the composition is excellent! The turning bridge is lovely, and the sea serpent is fantastic! I love those trans-dark blue 1x2 bricks, they look lovely. :) Best of luck!
Thanks Matthew, I had to sacrifice my other sea serpent to harvest the bricks but I'm glad they're back in circulation.

Thanks Lee, I love the variations LEGO has for water - dark, medium, light blue, plus trans-clear - it's awesome.

Quoting Delatron 3000 Yeah, Elven archers do that. I played a blade-bard for about four years of AD&D so I have a soft spot for it and an understanding of the cowardly ways of Lvl 20 Elf fighters with a magic bow. Mind you, as a bard I didn't want to go toe-to-toe with Drow and mind-flayers either..... My love of D&D and appreciation for the scene gives you an easy 5/5, but I think Ian probably has you beat on interpreting the category with a 'classic' board game and accessories, whilst yours is 'what's happening in my head as I charge this DRAGON!!!!' Good luck to you!
Yeah, as an Elven Sorcerer I can always be found at the very back of the party. ;) Thanks Stuart, your assessment's spot on. I didn't really feel like doing a flat board-game, so I just went for the build that'd be most fun.

Quoting Clayton Marchetti Where's the twenty sided die ? :-) another brilliant entry! Love the serpent. I really like the bridge and the damage at the end of it. This is such a beautifully clean build. Best of luck Luke!
Haha, thanks Clayton. Sadly I couldn't find any pieces small enough to build the d20 at the proper scale - even Modulex doesn't have triangular pieces the right size...

Quoting Stuart Lucas This is a typical LCV build - meaning, elegant, full of clever techniques and details, and with not a brick out of place. The only thing missing from the authentic D&D experience is arguing with the other players about interpretation of the rules :-) Good luck!
Thank you Stuart, those arguments are the best. Plus there's always one guy quoting Monty Python and the Holy Grail - "It's just a model!"

Quoting David Roberts A super dragon head and I really like the back corner, with the neat rockwork and arch way. The bend in the path path by the arch is very nicely built too. Are those flames coming out of the sides of the bridge?
Thanks David, yep, thought I'd add some magic fire to the scene - because why not?

Wouldn't that be something? There's something about having players draw maps based on descriptions that DMs really relish though. Cheers!

  October 27, 2014
Quoting Ian Spacek I've never played D&D, but this is a beautiful build! If you ever make it out to BW, we might have to sit down for an afternoon of role playing! Anyhow, good show sir! And here's to a good fight, eh? Cheers!
Cheers Ian, one of these years I'll come down. I'll need a real doozy of a build to bring though...
