Lawful What? Part Two

Friday, April 29th, 2005

We defeated the trolls without further difficulty and continued to explore the dungeon, heading back to check out a room we hadn't yet explored. When we open the door to it we see a table with some torture instruments on it. Getting in to the room lets the Rogue and Paladin, the latter of whom […]

Paladin Power!

Thursday, April 28th, 2005

Attacking some trolls in the dungeon, careful not to get hit by both claws in the same attack, we are starting to deal some heavy damage as we become more organised with our tactics. The Paladin feels particularly envigored and spies a weak spot in the enemy's defences, striking at the critical spot. With a […]

Knowledge is Power

Thursday, April 28th, 2005

In an effort to show us that making a lot of noise is not always a good thing in a dungeon, we are almost caught by surprise by a small band of wandering trolls when some fool is trying to chisel a stone door off its hinges. Even though the Paladin couldn't hear his own […]

In the Barrens

Monday, April 25th, 2005

The road was left behind, that dangerous route Abandoned for the safety offered by Secluded, grassy land, and there I spy A vantage point, from where any pursuit Is left behind, so climbing up I scoot Then sit and rest, enjoy the view that I Can see for miles around; and to my side A […]

We Didn't Do It!

Saturday, April 23rd, 2005

Through my travels across both continents I had picked up a fair few quests from people, and now I had a few originating from several different lands that all asked me to do something in the Hinterlands. Knowing that I could clear up a few quests quickly with one visit to the Hinterlands I headed […]

Skull Seer in a Sack

Friday, April 22nd, 2005

Talking to the skull-in-a-pentagram still, after a few more questions and requests for payment we couldn't make the Cleric comes up with what she thinks is a spiffy idea. She suggests throwing a sack over the skull, taking it out of the pentagram and carrying it around with us, letting it out whenever we need […]

A Price on His Head

Friday, April 22nd, 2005

Having made it past the purple worm, without defeating it, much to the Paladin's not-at-all-fake chagrin, the party finds itself in a small room with several doors leading off. Onwards! We choose a door and head through it, exploring the depths of the dungeon more. At the end of the multiple corridors and rooms that […]

The Aberrant Chapter: Defending Thelsamar

Monday, April 18th, 2005

Miwok, Azrail and I stood over the collapsed body of Margol the Rager. The fight had been fairly short for such a large and powerful creature, but we had been well-prepared and work well as a team. I looked across at my companions and saw the satisfaction spread across their faces, beads of sweat on […]

Lawful What?

Friday, April 15th, 2005

Our party spends a little time trying to find a way either to pass or, ideally, defeat the purple worm. We decide it would be best to defeat the worm, seeing as how this cavern looks to be the only way forwards, because it would clear our escape route should we need to leave in […]

Thrashing the Purple Worm

Friday, April 15th, 2005

The Orcs that we fought didn't turn out to put up as much of a struggle as they might have, even though I failed my saving throw against Hold Person and was close to being hit with a coup de grace. The Cleric was able to dispell that from me, but before that the Mage […]
