View Full Version : [AD&D] What Time Is It? ADVENTURE TIME!

2010-08-30, 10:54 AM
For those who don't know, Adventure Time (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Adventure_Time) is a glorious show on Cartoon Network about a boy, his dog, and the post-apocalyptic world around them populated by exploding candy folk, lava men, a hipster vampire queen, a virgin loser king with a slight interest in bondage, and other weird folk drawn from the fever ridden dreams of a mad man (or genius). The best thing is that the creator and writers are very obvious fans of Dungeons and Dragons. Each episode contains several "Gygaxian" moments or straight send ups to D&D. This topic is my attempt at giving them stats so you too can adventure in the land of Ooo.

Because of the old school influence, the rules are based on 1E AD&D which can be easily converted to 2E. I decided not to do a 3E conversion because the vast differences in monster vs. character hit die creates a wildly varying power level. Besides, Adventure Time feels very much 1E in its wierdness than 3E and beyond.

Don't have 1E? Don't worry, there's a free retro clone available called OSRIC (http://www.knights-n-knaves.com/osric/) which has everything you need to play. If someone wants to do a 3E conversion be my guest. Finally, I'm in no way affiliated with Pendleton Ward, Cartoon Network, or anything related to the show. I'm just a huge dork and a big fan.

Each increase in size from man-sized grants Jake the strength and movement of a giant equal to his new size up to titan's strength. He can stretch his limbs to great lengths allowing him to attack any creature even if he doesn't have line of effect (if line of sight isn't provided, such as a creature hiding behind cover, Jake attacks them as if they were invisible). Jake can shift his appendages into the form of different objects such as keys effectively granting him 100% to pick locks.

For scrolls, any costly spell components must be purchased and used.

Princess Bubblegum can own up to 8 replicated scrolls or potions, 4 replicated wands, 3 replicated staves, 2 replicated rods, and 1 replicated armor, weapon, or miscellaneous magic weapon at a time. Trying to replicate more magic items than her limit causes the previous item to crumble into dust.

The Enchiridion
"Kissing a princess is different than kissing your grandmother or your mother... very different. A peck on the cheek is not going to cut it. Nothing but lip on lip action will suffice with a true princess. It's best to first practice on a lip monster, but proceed with caution because, as everyone knows, a lip monster can easily kiss one to death."

This mystical tome details the proper manner of courting, rescuing, and making out with princesses. When studied for a full week (56 hours within 7 days), the book bestows the following abilities.

1. +2 charisma and double reaction bonus when dealing with princesses.
2. Princess Sense. The reader is intrinsically aware of all princesses in danger within a 10 mile radius plus 10 miles per character level or HD (whichever's higher).
3. The reader knows how to properly handle princesses in all respect from dancing, dining, smooching, and other princess related activities.

More coming soon!
