Sapphire's Brewfest Adventure

Sunday, September 28th, 2008

After being told about Knifey's disappointing time at Brewfest last week I had planned to give it a miss, but Damacy showed me her cute Wolpertinger pet and I wanted one for myself. As the festival was still in full swing and peasants were encouraging me to visit I decided to take some time to […]

Chicken Simian

Thursday, September 25th, 2008

Our goblin guide we rescued, his corpse being dragged along behind us, whispers to the warlock that a door ahead supposedly leads to a treasure room. We must investigate! The battle map we use is wiped clean of the previous combat zone and the party waits expectantly in limbo. Under his breath, whilst reading the […]

No One Expects the Warlock Inquisition

Thursday, September 25th, 2008

We encounter an imprisoned goblin in our exploration of the keep, telling us he fell foul of the boss goblin's favour, which prompts a lengthy discussion on whether we should release him and let him accompany us. If he really is friendly after we release him then he can guide us through the keep and […]

Knifey's Brewfest Adventure

Tuesday, September 23rd, 2008

When Knifey was working his way towards getting a ram, and avoiding the mechanostrider as much as possible, Melmoth helpfully pointed out that the popular Brewfest in October offers a swift ram mount that can be gained by repeating some daily quests for a week. Brewfest didn't come around quickly enough before Knifey reached 60 […]

Sapphire Hits 50 and Visits the Sunken Temple

Sunday, September 21st, 2008

There was a proposed guild run to battle the trolls and dragons in the sunken Temple of Atal'Hakkar, and I was going to be the tank. Before I head in to the temple, I am keen to get the warrior class quest from my trainer, but he thinks I am not quite ready and wants […]

Working as a Team

'The new room is going to end up off the edge of my map, isn't it?' 'If it isn't, we've gone the wrong way.'

How to Look Good Mapping

Thursday, September 18th, 2008

Our recent excursion to dispose of a kobold threat, along with some research by the prescient chap we met earlier, has led to the belief that our visit to the Old Keep will be more trouble than a simple cartography mission. Not only is the rumour of goblins true but now we understand that there […]

Sap Considered Harmful

Tuesday, September 16th, 2008

Knifey and friends head up to Caer Darrow to visit the Scholomance, worried that the occupants are probably going a little stir-crazy with no one coming to visit. If anything could enliven an otherwise normal day of summoning undead it would be a visit by armoured heroes with pointy weapons and freezing spells. We have […]

Failure to Communicate

Thursday, September 4th, 2008

Bravely inching our way through a waterfall in to what we believe is a den of kobolds, after fighting a bunch of kobolds outside the waterfall, no one is terribly surprised when kobolds and adventurers end up standing face-to-face. Moving swiftly in to action, the ranger adopts the Arnold Rimmer approach to combat by attempting […]
