Kickstarting a Fight

Thursday, March 31st, 2005

Progressing through the dungeon, our party is in a long corridor with several doors on either side of it. Looking in the first door we see a couple of dire rats and their young, none of which is looking for a fight and there seems to be little of value in the room so we […]

Best. Pull. Ever.

Friday, March 25th, 2005

A little while back I had been tasked to bring the head of Nagaz to an official in Southshore, so that the death of this leader would quell the threat his group posed. With a little help from Azrail we headed up the shore of Alterac and, after fighting through some assassins standing guard, we […]

Sleepwalker

Last night I was on my way back to Dustwallow Marsh from Stormwind City to try to complete a part of a quest my warlock trainer had given me. I had flown in to Menethil Harbour and saw the ship to Theramore Isle sitting in the dock, so I ran down the pier in the […]

A Large Sack

Sunday, March 13th, 2005

Yesterday evening, I wandered back to the inn in Stormwind City and found my Elven friend Azrail sitting quietly in the corner. I greeted him and offered him a drink and a tale, which he accepted. I sat down at the table and began recounting my adventuring tale of the day. I had been in […]

Watch Where You Step

Thursday, March 10th, 2005

Naturally cautious in a dungeon rumoured to be full of undead creatures and other nasty monsters, when our party came across a room with an opened sarcophagus containing a skeletal figure with a sword lain across it and another mouldy body lying on the floor our first instincts weren't to rush in and examine things […]

Too Much Port to 'Port

Wednesday, March 9th, 2005

After another day of adventuring Grimbor and I found ourselves relaxing in the inn in Menethil Harbour, taking the opportunity to have a few drinks while we were there. Well, I was with a Dwarf, and I don't think I've ever seen a Dwarf in an inn without a drink in his hand. After a […]

Kick 'em While They're Down

Friday, March 4th, 2005

After the farcical tug o' war I played with the black skeletons, my tripping technique improved slightly. With a more concentrated effort I was able to trip the skeletons over more frequently. By this time we had also positioned the party so that the Rogue could also attack the skeleton fighting me, even though it […]

Tug o' War

Thursday, March 3rd, 2005

After my successful Trip attempts against the skeletons when they advanced on us, I felt sure this tactic would work further to the party's advantage. After all, a tripped opponent is prone and is easier to hit with melee weapons, and if I succeeded in tripping an opponent I got a free melee attack and […]

Ring a Ring of Roses

Thursday, March 3rd, 2005

Our party ventured further in to the deadly dungeon. We were faced with four doors, and they all seemed to open in to corridors. We picked one to go down, the one that seemed more likely to head to a dead end first and thus we could discount as the way forward more quickly, and […]

Undeath

Tuesday, March 1st, 2005

I was spending the evening relaxing in a Dwarven inn with Grimbor, enjoying all of his adventuring tales that I had heard countless times before, but always with some new twist to them depending on what he had drunk that evening, when our Night Elf companion Azrail sauntered in. Even though he was very much […]
