There is no Knowledge (Maths)

Thursday, April 29th, 2010

The Hag is not susceptible to helping our plan to overthrow Kalarel and tries to send a warning with a tiny construct. I stomp it in to pieces which pretty much guarantees repercussions. Even without the construct that was running away from us, we are faced with the hag and her two minions, a large […]

Make War Not Love

Thursday, April 29th, 2010

'You wake up after having the undead skin grafts.' That's a relief! It would have been quite a ruse to kill the heroes of the adventure whilst unconscious after agreeing to cosmetic surgery. Maybe we can even turn the situation to our advantage. 'Does the operation count as an extended rest?' Apparently not. But two […]

You'll Find Him a Good Bleeder

Thursday, April 15th, 2010

Baldran is defeated and he agrees to assist us with the ritual. But only on the condition that Arath, priest of Orcus, personally gives him the order. That's okay, we are off to talk to her next. It doesn't take much convincing to get Arath on our side, not when I wield and turn in […]

You Don't Have to Retreat, But You Can't Stay Here

Thursday, April 15th, 2010

Finally, Baldran is subdued. Using the magic nose, Lughar chooses not to make the final blow lethal, knocking him unconscious instead. We revive him and start to negotiate for his assistance in the ritual, after proving our power to defeat him, but our fight has caught the attention of guards from the citadel, who are […]

Rather More Fantastic

'Can I fire my bow from prone?' 'You can do almost anything from prone, except move your normal speed.' 'Okay, it's just that you couldn't fire a bow from prone in 3.5e, which seems somewhat more realistic.' 'I think it says a lot about 4e that it has taken away the 'realism' of 3.5e.'

Or Maybe Just a Dolphin

Our fight with Baldran the demon continues, and it looks like it will last even longer when 'the brute on the floor lets out a wail'. It seems we have another monster to fight. And the brute hasn't finished, as it 'explodes in a burst of necrotic damage. The other brute, as part of the […]

Going for the BAFTA

Thursday, April 8th, 2010

Our fight with the demon leader Baldran continues. 'We need to knock him unconscious and negotiate with him!' I may have spotted a flaw with this plan, but as Baldran has cast a zone of darkness, impenetrable to our senses, we have more pressing matters. Thankfully, every now and again we tempt him out, or […]

Culling the Crowd

Thursday, April 8th, 2010

As predicted, the moment we step in to Baldran's open area we are challenged by the demon and get in to a fight. We don't even get to introduce ourselves, which just isn't cricket. And although no onlooker dares to step in to the square, a large crowd forms to watch the spectacle of some […]

Getting Close to a Demon

Thursday, April 1st, 2010

'Where the devil were we?' turns out to be a pertinent question, as we are in the realm of Orcus, trying to make a deal with demons to prevent an army's attack. To get the key to a fortress we need the co-operation of three lieutenants. We decide to get Baldran on our side first, […]
