You know how long it's been since I've played anything D&D related? Smiley: motz

No, seriously. Do you? I can't remember the last time ...

I'm thinking about DMing an AD&D 1st edition game in 2018. Maybe I can catch the Stranger Things retro crowd with it. I'll likely play an old 1st ed module with it which has the dual purpose of "Play this classic module" and (more importantly) keeping my work overhead down in case the game fizzles in three weeks.

I'd imagine the baby would be a better source than vampire spit in the blood stream.

I do, although that was a Basic D&D module, not AD&D. It would be fairly easy to convert though especially since hobgoblins, stirges, minotaur, etc are all in the AD&D Monster Manual.

Something spoooooky, I'm sure. Durkon picked it for a reason, just don't know why yet. I'm sure it'll be epic though!

I sense that Durkon's mom will be involved somehow.

Well, they're large and generally used for ceremonies so I imagine it's where a large amount of exposition is going to take place. Probably something about how the death of the protagonists will lead to the end of the universe and the rebirth and blah blah blah yakety schmackity.

Durkon picked it because he couldn't access Thor's sanctum and figured the banquet hall would be the next best thing -- large, open and apparently secluded enough for them to regain spells prior to the fight and set up traps.

That's certainly what Darkon was told, via Durkon's memories. The question is whether Durkon filled him in on everything about that hall.

Point being that Durkon didn't pick it because he had some special Banquet Hall Related Plan, it was a second choice selected because it appeared to fit his general criteria for a battlefield against the Order.

Dukron's spirit appears to have some reason for 'suggesting' it, perhaps the one given when asked, perhaps not.

Yeah. Durkon has figured out that while he can't directly lie about anything to his vamp bodynapper, he can choose which "true" information to reveal. This was shown when he let the vamp know that the keystone held by the head cleric was needed to unlock the door to the Thor temple, but didn't reveal that if the keystone wasn't given freely, it would disintegrate instead of unlocking said door. I'm assuming that was intended as foreshadowing for other bits of information he's giving the vamp that are incomplete, and that the missing bits will prove to be significant.

Which leads us to the likelihood that there's some other reason in addition to the one he revealed as to why he'd want the vamps in that hall. Don't know what that is, and I'm probably somewhere down around 5% on accurately predicting anything in this strip, so I'm not sure how valuable speculation will be. We can reasonably assume that it's not that someone else will be there instead of the owners (he said "a place where thar willnae be anyone ta kill right now"). So no convention of vampire killers who meet each Tuesday morning while the banquet owners are away or anything. It might be something about the hall itself that gives an edge to the order, or perhaps a disadvantage to the vamps. Maybe it's been outfitted with an automatic smoke clearing system, after the great kitchen fire of '08 or something, so if they turn into mist, they'll get sucked into a storage tank maybe? Or Tuesday doubles as cleaning day, with the cleaning staff being made up of dwarven made stone golems or something (so no one to "kill"), who will gleefully "clean up" any vermin in the hall (including vampires).

Or... It's something totally different. Yeah. My money is on that.
