Saturday saw the denizens of the floating citadel descend upon servitob’s trash cans for a last minute arranged game of SDE. Turnout was good, folks were stoked but nBreaker had forgotten the cards to play the myriad of expansions in his possession.
Luckily servitob had a basic card set stashed at a trusty neighbour’s house and was able to collect said cards and neighbour for a four hero game with the evil mastermind gribblin playing consul.
In keeping with our hardcore masochistic SDE tendencies we played the five hero version of events and selected the heroes entirely at random. We therefore proceeded one hero down with a mismatched crew of hexcast, druid, barbarian and ranger.
Despite our best efforts gribblin managed total party kill before the big boss even spawned, much to his credit. First to be slain was the hexcast who was an obvious target given her possession of the resurrection charm. Second to be killed was the barbarian who was on a foolish solo jolly miles away from the rest of the team, then it was only a matter of time before the ranger and druid fell to the tide of denizens.
Overall, SDE remains a firm floating citadel favourite given it’s emphasis on teamwork and simple fun mechanics with very good visuals. We’ll continue to play for the foreseeable future; especially as nBreaker acquires more and more RL SDE loot.
