  1. I’m a little upset that Gama broke his contract. There were no stipulations about the party’s conduct afterward, it was simply an exchange of access for vote. Shouldn’t a god be more strongly bound to their word than a mortal? Shouldn’t there be some sort of consequence for him breaking this?

      It’s spelled “Gomma”. I only know this because I spelled it the same way you did in a tweet, and was corrected by the god himself. :D

  2. Frederick Pagliarulo, a.k.a. Darth Macho on

    I have to say that when I first listened to the episode in which the information about the woken gods was given, Gomma and The Toad’s Boardwalk sounded like it would be the most interesting, and it certainly lived up to my expectations. Though (spoilers) the outcome of the arc was not ideal for the party, it was certainly a fun ride. Much praise to Rodrigo on the brilliance of the entire setting, especially the wonderful way he used creatures such as (spoilers) slaad, will-o-wisps, and nagas. They managed to be both against type and yet also retained their traditional roles as well. Very creative. I’m almost jealous of how good it is! I hope this isn’t the last we’ve seen from this place.
    I also liked the way the players delved right into the setting as well, especially their antics boardwalk and casinos. They certainly seemed to have a lot of fun (spoiler) despite the outcome. Thanks to all!!

  3. Hi fellow Future People!

    I guess I get your point, but the party was basically told, “Heads up, this thing is going down and don’t interfere.” And the party replied, “Frack off, we’re getting in on this, wrecking your stuff, and it’s all to help someone you hate.” Gomma’s response seemed VERY measured given what little we know of him and his domains. Rodrigo pretty much told them “Good thing you’re at Epic Tier with some serious friends in your corner.”
