On Aggro Stealing

Tuesday, November 27th, 2007

The Consortium was asking for volunteers to kill some Blood Elves, so my warrior, Tiger, was rounded up with some characters from a friendly guild and we headed off to the Botanica. When we got there, one character piped up, 'Tiger, you've got your hands full tonight, as you have three aggro stealers with you!' […]

Sense Obliviousness

Thursday, November 22nd, 2007

'Can you roll a Sense Motive check please?', asks the DM of one of our players. 'Can anyone roll?', I interject. 'If you were paying attention, yes.' 'Of course I was paying attention', I say, starting to roll my D20. 'What are we rolling for?' '<sigh>'

Death at Bargain Prices

Thursday, November 22nd, 2007

The summoned gryphon is destroyed, the puppy dog with the big teeth runs away, and the demonic sorceror is defeated. After ensuring he cannot cast spells, a bit of interrogation reveals who hired him to kill the councillor. Success! We now have the two people responsible for the death of the councillor in our custody […]

DM Ex Machina

Thursday, November 15th, 2007

A councillor was murdered in his sleep. Twice. We have uncovered one plot almost to its conclusion, but the other remains elusive. We still don't know what sort of creature ripped out the councillor's throat, or how it got in to his room, or who was controlling it. In fact, we pretty much know nothing […]

Gorefiend's Armour: Helping to Defeat Vhel'kur

Monday, November 12th, 2007

Running around with a mage friend in Shadowmoon Valley, trying to avoid the nasty bidepal dragonlike monsters in the Temple of Ata'Mal, I get a call asking for help to kill a big undead dragon flying around the Netherwing Ledge in an effort to retrive Gorefiend's armour. I mention that I am already in a […]

Who Needs a Pony?

Thursday, November 8th, 2007

Having defeated the acrobats and now looking for their escaped leader and hunting for further clues as to his motivation behind the murder we start to head back across town to the inn where we found out the troupe was staying. The inn is about a thirty minute walk from the theatre, and we are […]

Thought for the Day

Thursday, November 1st, 2007

What with the recent fight that involved multiple grappling foes and a troubled Dexter failing to draw a weapon, lethal versus non-lethal damage was mused upon. If you hit someone with a chair leg it counts as an improvised weapon and you do lethal damage. By the same logic, if you hit someone with a […]

The Fighting Acrobats

Thursday, November 1st, 2007

Tumblers, fire-breathers, all the thrills of an acrobatic troupe about to kick your arse! This is high-theatre, and we have font-row seats. We quickly move back a few rows to avoid the initial rush and allow us time to compose ourselves a bit better. Dexter and George, our two able fighters, set themselves at the […]
