Foiled by a Miniature

Friday, September 30th, 2005

Our Fighter is an all-or-nothing kind of chap. When he is sure of a hit with his Greatsword he will use as much of a bonus from Power Attack as he can, ably felling some enemies with a single blow. When he is facing something a bit more difficult to hit he eschews Power Attack […]

The Poor Porpoise

Thursday, September 29th, 2005

Pushing further in to the waterlogged tunnels, and having to quaff each of our potions of underwater breathing to get past some areas, we enter a fairly spacious cavern. Suspecting that the jig is up and the enemy knows we are there, because what sounds like a rather large gong sounds repeatedly right after we […]

Shark Attack!

Friday, September 16th, 2005

Having approached things a bit cautiously for the start of the adventure we became a little cocky about not having taken any damage in the adventure after a few fights. The Ninja and I swam through a small pool of water to scout out possible exits to the room, and were attacked from beneath by […]

During our preparations, where we make sure all our buffs are running and we discuss possible tactics, […]

This Ain't a Cruise Liner

'Does this boat serve breakfast?' 'Not in the evening, Master Gnome.' 'Nuts.'

Still on Full Health

Friday, September 9th, 2005

Dashing and bold adventurers that we are, we encountered three ghouls and a ghast, and a poo monster recently. What with the successful turning attempt and a couple of big hits by our Fighter against the poo monster, as well as it's poor disorientation, the party as a whole has yet to be hurt or […]

The Easy Way to Remove a Spell

Thursday, September 8th, 2005

Delving further in to the cave system, hoping to find out more about the missing ships and where the crews and cargo are, we tread down some winding corridors, all of them at least a few inches deep with water. At the end of one corridor we find a couple of rooms, inside one of […]
