On our way to the valley of the Invisible Stalkers, maybe not its official name, we are ambushed, by monks hiding in trees! 'They'll do their fancy slow-falling down to us in a second', says Thrak, somehow experienced with the monk style of fighting. Salvador casts Scorching Ray, and gets hits with both rays. The […]

During the previous battle, we saw some villagers being dragged away by Invisible Stalkers. We saw them because we had a See Invisibilty spell active, obviously. Now we think that perhaps we should do something about the Stalkers, to prevent more villagers from falling prey to them. Rather than rush in, it's probably best to […]
'My dog will attack the general! Is 19 a hit?' 'Miss.' 'Ah, +2 for flanking. 21?' 'Miss.' '+1 for Bless. 22?' 'Miss.' '...blatant cheating. 40?' 'Hit!'
In the ongoing protection of a village against a fair-sized orc force, Thrak smacks down one elite orc soldier but remains almost surrounded. He ponders his next target of attack. 'Which of the orcs are wounded?' 'That one has been wounded.' 'Seriously?' 'Yeah, I'm not kidding.'
The second wave of orcs takes the form of wyvern riders. On wyverns! Their swooping and fly-by attacks will no doubt cause us problems, so I do something to try to make us less of a target. I cast a spell, and a dome of ice protects us, with an opening at ground level to […]
Busy defending the village against the advancing orcs, we don't notice two skirmishers sneaking their way over the fence to flank us until it's a little late to stop them. 'Where are the villagers with pitchforks?' says Thrak. Salvador is curious about that too. 'I thought we'd coordinated the ones willing to fight so that […]
Orc reinforcements are arriving. Oh good, just in time. The orcs' general, a human, returns with the reinforcements and he is seen riding a bipedal, eyeless reptile. 'Do we know what that is?' 'Make a Dungeoneering Knowledge roll.' '22.' 'You know it's a Destrachan.' 'And what do I know about Destrachan?' 'That it's a bipedal, […]
To try to persuade the orcs to leave of their own accord, whilst still partly under an effect that makes them open to suggestion, I cast Seeming on us to make us appear as part of the orc army. Needless to say, it didn't work as planned, but at least we weren't attacked. The Seeming […]
Having accidentally caused the demise of another extra-planar being that we probably shouldn't have, we now may need to face a small orc army. Having focussed our attentions on the air elementals, and not having rested since then, our resources are somewhat limited. Well, maybe not all of our resources, but certainly my list of […]
On our way up a mountainous path to a monastery, we encounter some huge air elementals. We are not prepared for this, a single fly-by attack by one of the elementals, knocking Salvador down to half his hit points convincing us of this. We retreat back down the mountain. We spend a night preparing tactics […]
