> Doom (5e Campaign Setting)

The Moons of Saturn is a Doom campaign run by me (User:Marasmusine) for the fine folks at D&D Wiki.

I will be accepting 1 to 4 players. Make a marine. For background, pick soldier, urchin, sailor (replace vehicles (water) with vehicles (aerospace), criminal, or any homebrew background that will fit in a sci-fi setting.

When you post your actions, start with your character's name in bold. Don't use a header and don't sign the post (I trust you not to pose as someone else's character :)

Player Characters[edit]

The game is underway, but by all means people can still join in, it's trivial to write people in.

DM. As you dash through the darkness, the habitat court begins to glow with a diffuse red light from above, accompanied by a queesy throbbing sound. You hear sound like a pig dying, and a demon bounds out of the hydroponics lobby, onto a big crate. You can make out little scurrying things, too, cat-sized, but it's not clear what they are... In the nearest elevator to you, stuck half-way-up, an ex-security guard starts pounding his shoulder against the glass, screaming obscenities, eyes red.

Williams is hidden, against a big shipping crate. The bar and grill is off the north side of the map (I'll refresh it if you get that far). Everyone make initiative checks!


(As you can see I've been busy getting better quality map tiles and tokens. I couldn't find a diagonal door, but there is the entrance to the counceller's office in the diagonal wall to the south-east.)

Williams. Initiative, 1d20, 13 + 3 = 16.

Stafford. Initiative, 1d20, 8 + 2 = 10. "I preferred it when they didn't speak..."

Flynn. Initiative d20 17 + 3 = 20 Roll

Initiative: Critters - Flynn - Williams - Stafford - Ex-Security - Demon

DM (Williams is purple, Flynn is blue, Ordos is yellow, Stafford is black. Williams is pressed up against the crate and hidden.) The critters scurry across the floor with a wet padding sound, disappearing behind a crate.

Flynn. Flynn moves to find cover from the former security agent, then makes an attack using his shotgun. d20 11 + 5 = 16 Roll

(Flynn also uses a bonus action to use "Point Fire!" against the former security agent)

Williams. I move 5 ft. so that I am in line of sight to the demon, and fire my shotgun from both barrels at him. 1d20, 10 + 5 = 15. If I hit, it is for 2d8 + 3: 8, 7, 1 + 3 = 18 damage. I down a can of F-Max shortly afterwards.

DM. Flynn moves up and takes cover behind a display board (showing dim and shuddering images). Although the guard has some cover from the elevator, the shot smashes the glass and punches into him. (6+8+3 = 17 damage, -5 absorbed by the glass = 12 damage). The weird device on Flynn's shotgun makes a buzzing sound, then stops.

Williams gets a clear shot at the demon and it takes a full blast of shot. It screeches, but as before, the wound immediately partially heals (9 damage).

(Stafford up next. I will mark the guard in a red diamond to denote the point fire bonus).

Stafford. Stafford moves left to the wall and fires at the marked guard with his pistol. 1d20, 12 + 4 = 16.

DM. Stafford's shot only just smacks the guard in the shoulder (6 piercing damage), Flynn's order making all the difference.

The guard responds with a shotgun blast, but it strikes the display board by Flynn, showing him with bits of plastic.

The demon leaps and bounds onto the crate outside the councillor's office and lobs a firebolt at Stafford, but it screeches past and impacts somewhere in the distance.

During this exchange, the red light from above has been intensify along with the throbbing sound. Cracks appear in the court roof, glowing a fiery orange. Athena has been announcing: "This is a general announcement. The main comms array is now synchronized with the stations on Iapetus, Rhea, Dione and Tethys and is locked into its secondary phase. Communications will be available for use in 88 hours and 12 minutes. During this time there may be some localized thermal emissions. I apologize for the inconvenience."

Great globs of what appear to be lava emerge from the cracks above (marked on the map with red squares).

The critters swarm up to stafford. They look like badly mangled rats. They seem to be wet. The thing in the lead looks like two conjoined rats. It snarls and snaps at Stafford's leg but can't penetrate the armor.

(Flynn's point fire expires, but I left the mark on in case you are issuing it again)

Flynn. Flynn moves away from the superheated material, makes another attack against the former security agent with his shotgun then uses "Point Fire!" again. d20 19 + 5 = 24 Roll

DM. (Okay, I'm going to be generous and say Flynn reloaded his shotgun prior to this battle. Next time I'll make an Intelligence check for the character. My apologies if you did say you reloaded it and I missed it. Can we also agree on if collectively you want me to update your character sheet's ammunition or if you're going to do it!)

It's a solid hit that throws the guard to the back of the elevator. He slides down, lifeless.

(Williams next)

Williams. Dropping my shotgun, I run forward at the demon with my chainsaw whirling and a can of F-Max on my lips. 1d20, 11 + 5 = 16. I lunge into the demon, for 3d4+2: 1,4,4 (+2,1) +2 = 14 points of damage.

DM The chainsaw judders through the leathery body with what feels like a lethal strike, but again the demon proves quiet resilient (7 damage).

(Stafford next)

Stafford. Stafford ignores the mutated rats and fires at the demon Williams attacked. 1d20, 18 + 4 = 22

DM It's a good shot (2d6, 11+2=13; 6 damage) that penetrates the demon's brow sending it sprawling across the floor.

(I need to write more but the wiki is just not behaving. Taking 5+ minutes to load a page, often failing. Will try again tomorrow)
