This was a fun game. You play monster hunters in a town that will eventually be overrun by monsters. Whoever has the most gold (ash) when everyone is dead wins.
The game turns are separated into day and night. During the day, each player makes three actions; sell, eat, equip, or fight a monster. Then play proceeds to the next player and so on. Each monster is only hurt by one of five ammunition types, salt, bone, iron, wood, and silver. To fight you must have the correct ammunition selected. Each monster also has numbers on the left representing hits, defense, damage, and strength and one number to the right representing the number of loot cards one gets for defeating the monster.
A fight lasts until all hits are taken from the creature. To hit you roll five dice vs the monsters defense. All dice that equal or exceed the monsters defense cause a hit. If the monster takes all the hits the player gets the number of loot cards indicated on the monster card. At this time a player may loot the dungeon as an action for one more loot card. If the player does not kill the monster the first turn it retaliates and rolls the number of dice equal to it's damage. All dice that score equal to or higher than the monsters strength are hits. Play continues until one or the other are dead.
All loot has a gold value and some loot has a food value. A player may play one action and eat as many food cards as they wish to heal.
A player may use spells or craft at any time. To use a spell simply play it and do what it says. To craft, a player may use the indicated number of cards on the item they are wanting to craft as shown on the craft card. These items are worth more than the base loot indicates.
The game continues until everyone is dead. The dead players play ghosts with nasty cards that they can use to screw over the living. I died and came back again with mine! Hahaha.
Fun game 3 1/2 out of 5.

Last Saturday night we played the final game of dnd 5e for 2017. The game is set in our home brew world of Tuladyenth. The world is based deeply on Irish mythology. The group found themselves separated as their rogue, Bugsy sped off in the direction of familiar voices pleading for help. When he got there, he found three big trolls cooking his friends... will his friends arrive in time?

In this episode our rifters go further into the space hulk and uncover more secrets within the Adaptus Astartes frigate including signs of ripped biological containers and destroyed remains of space marines with chests burst open as if something clawed their way out... all the while they too are being hunted by a predator!
Having successfully completed their first XCrawl the crew heads to the local uptown night club, the Phaser Noir for some R&R and excitement! On the way, Kitiara the bounty hunter gets a text looking to collect on a mark. Orcs have been spotted in the area too as have space goblins. The blighters are probably up to no good but it should be a good way to get a few credits plus the place has some triple action blackjack tables just calling Voulay's name. It should be an interesting night!
This episode features: Steve, Warley, Jamie, Mel, and Rob. Frank was absent and another potential player, Cliff joined us for a night of review so you may hear him as well. Cliff will be joining us as the sixth and final crewmember of the ship and is looking at the Mystic or Technomancer!
