This Ain't Paranoia

Thursday, May 9th, 2013

We've uncovered about as much information as we think we can muster through talking to the general population and by researching in the library. Now we need to get back to more physical investigations. As we've already thoroughly ransacked Hancock's house, the obvious next place to visit is the dig site, where the temple to […]

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 […]

Steve the Pirate

Thursday, September 7th, 2006

In-between longer adventures, we turn to a short adventure where we play evil characters. I'm not sure what class to play, until Bert mentions off-handedly that I could be a pirate, using the Dread Pirate prestige class that appears in the Complete Adventurer. Yarr, that be a fine idea, matey! Of course, I could have […]

Dinike Rioe, Half-Elven Bard

Thursday, January 5th, 2006

Lenwë decided to head back to a monastery for a while after the adventure with the Drow, seeking more enlightenment than could be brought through violent means. Shortly after this happens, a wandering bard comes in to town and plays in an inn where our adventurers are staying. He plays enchanting melodies and even tells […]

Lenwë the Elven Monk

Wednesday, August 24th, 2005

With the Half-Orc Fighter Grot Krayfish, Elrohir the Wild Elf Ninja, Gimp Stormglass, a Deep Halfling Conjurer, and Human Cleric Shaniqa Arisa is Lenwë Telemnar, an Elven Monk. Realising that most non-Elves, including the rather savage and uncultured Wild Elves, cannot get the inflections of the Elven tongue correct he is content to be known […]

Elan the Elven Bard

Thursday, May 12th, 2005

With the current DM absent, it's time for another one-off adventure to play, which means another character to create! Probably because it would be for one week only, I decided to try out the Bard class. Often thought to be too general to be of any use, and frequently mocked and derided, the Bard does […]

Faust

Wednesday, May 11th, 2005

Faust grew up the son of a Paladin. Intrigued by the divine power his father could evoke Faust started to follow in his father's footsteps, trying to learn how to evoke the same powers of protection and defence. When coming of age, Faust saw his first battle; although only a skirmish, he was repelled yet […]

Dinendal's Companions

Tuesday, January 18th, 2005

Brothers Fizz the Whisper Gnome Rogue and Bang the Whisper Gnome Wizard will be joining Dinendal the Elven Fighter on his adventure, along with Percival the Human Paladin and Hadara the Human Cleric. Who will be the first pushing up the daisies? Edit: Bang now has a familiar, Codo the ferret.

Dinendal The Fighter

Monday, January 17th, 2005

My gaming group finished the adventure we were playing the last time we met. We have retired the characters for now and are starting on a new campaign, with new characters and a different player as the DM. The adventure is supposed to be an old-school dungeon crawl, so we were asked to create characters […]

Melvin the Wizard

Thursday, August 26th, 2004

When the DM's away, the players will, uh, play. Or something. We're missing our DM for a couple of weeks so we'll be playing a mini-adventure in the meantime. This calls for new characters; new 9th level characters, in fact. I have chosen to play a Wizard, and so have created Melvin. It can be […]
