Stupid Character Concept: Iron Monk

Thursday, January 26th, 2012

Start with the monk class. Take the sunder feats. Optimise the character for his sundering weapons. Now take him in to the heart of combat but don't attack. Instead, always ready an action to sunder the weapon of anyone who attacks you. As monks can attack using any part of their body, what essentially happens […]

Something Happened?

Thursday, January 19th, 2012

Left is the righteous path. It has been so since the days of Metrius the paladin, the simpleton who was forever taking us down left-hand corridors whatever the evidence that we should be heading in a different direction. He may have had a point, though. 'You know why we had a problem in that room, […]

Hit by a Missed Opportunity

Thursday, January 19th, 2012

We stumble in to what looks like a disused storeroom in the Asmodean Knot. There are bits and pieces stashed everywhere, and a small source of magic tempts Brennan and Afutavere in to look for it. They are both somewhat startled, but not surprised, when an atrophied humanoid stumbles out from behind something and starts […]

Six? Really?

Thursday, January 12th, 2012

Our fears have been mastered. All four rooms have been entered, and we've faced fire, blood, snakes, spiders, and clowns. Something like that. As the final beastie in each room pooed out a gem of sorts we take them all back to the central room and present them to the ghostly voice that told us […]

You Never Truly Own a Cat

Thursday, January 12th, 2012

The spider swarm hits the elf, who fails his third saving throw of the session. He suffers 2 strength damage, to go with his constitution damage from the vipers, which his cat shrugged off, and wisdom damage from earlier in the Asmodean Knot. 'I can't use my bow now because I can't pull it properly', […]

Dire Bear Swarm

Thursday, January 12th, 2012

The fourth and final room of phobias has a ceiling covered with webs. 'Spiders!', says Ganelon. 'No, bats!', Brennan corrects him. No, it really is spiders. The webs start rattling and... 'The web's are rattling?', says Ganelon. 'Yes. Do you have a problem with that?' Thinking back to the snake room, Ganelon decides he's okay […]

Ophidian Friend

Thursday, January 12th, 2012

The next phobia is snakes. As the paladin and ranger walk in to the room vipers appear from holes in the wall and strike! A viper slithers towards the ranger's cat, warps itself around it, and... 'Vipers aren't constrictors', says Ganelon, 'they don't wrap themselves around anything'. 'Oh, undead you have no problem with, but […]

Out For Blood

Thursday, January 12th, 2012

We have three more fears to face, but after fighting fire we can't quite remember what the others are. Something to do with spiders, snakes, and maybe public speaking. We wander down the stairs to the auditorium to get the speech out of the way first only to see wicker cages suspended above us that […]
