A New Record

Tuesday, October 29th, 2013

Tracing the source of the poison in the river should be as simple as tracing the source of the river. To do that, you head upstream. We negotiate expenses with the town governor to help her hamlet, which thankfully gets us out of wagon-guarding duty in the process, and we follow the river to see […]

'You have found the Maul.' 'I thought there was only one.'

Putting out Fires

Thursday, October 3rd, 2013

We survive by finding sanctuary in the most heavily shielded room in the ship, and as that barely remains intact it's unsurprising to see the state of disrepair beyond the doorway.

It's been a while since the last session. Do we even know where we are? 'Fenksworld.' '...really?' 'Yes.' 'Really?' '...no.' Okay, we're up to speed. Let's go.
