He Really Doesn't Like His Animal Companions

Thursday, March 19th, 2015

'I was thinking about taking the 'cremate familiar' feat.'

Being Prepared Guarantees Nothing

Thursday, March 19th, 2015

On the demi-plane between the planes of fire and water, we sense we are nearing the final encounter. We have checked one place where the villain might be and he wasn't there. There is just one more place to check. 'Let's use these scrolls of resist energy before going through these double doors', says Boycey. […]

Finding Batman

Thursday, February 26th, 2015

'Inside the chest is a staff.' 'How many?' 'Um, just the one.' 'That's a small staff. Maybe he only needs a butler.'

Miniature Misunderstanding

Thursday, February 26th, 2015

'That's how useless wizards are.' 'Oi!' 'No, Wizards of the Coast. They've put the medium outsider Azer miniature on a small base.'

Edging Out of the Circle of Trust

Tuesday, February 17th, 2015

We defeat the wizard, don't get vaporised by the protective wards, and switch the steam back on for the city. It's a simple matter to return to the surface and report back to the Lyceum. Nearing the end of our debriefing, Aramil admits that 'I never trusted that bloke, he looked shifty from the start'. […]

We're Good Listeners

Tuesday, February 17th, 2015

With the help of our rescued companion, and a little fiery fellow, we find the evil wizard who has disabled the heating system for the entire city. Of course, he starts monologuing. Typical. 'Can't we just attack him? He's kinda distracted.' 'I think you need a feat to interrupt quest text.' We learn all about […]

Do You Have Knowledge: Character Sheet?

Saturday, February 14th, 2015

Heading in to the underground tunnels that form the steam system reveals what appear to be lived-in passages, lit by torches. We were led to believe the whole system would normally be filled with steam, so this is not quite what we expect. 'Can I make a knowledge check to see how long these torches […]

Our Very Own Donald

Saturday, February 14th, 2015

The underground steam system that heats the city has failed. No one really knows why, partly because the system was constructed centuries ago and has never even needed maintenance, so no one alive knows about its workings or topology. This means that it's up to us brave adventurers to investigate. 'Why us? Do we have […]

Someone's Boasting

Thursday, January 22nd, 2015

Despite our best efforts at being completely rubbish detectives, we manage to locate the stolen dragon's egg. We should probably write down what we did so that we can repeat our successful methods next time. Something about talking to people, I think. We bargain with the thief to sell us the egg, but with no […]

He'd Also Sacrifice the Skutters

Thursday, January 22nd, 2015

After returning from a negotiation, we update the sergeant of the fort with our progress, after which he invites us to share a game of Conquest with him. Conquest is a strategy game where players pit their wits as commanders against each other, as well as test out actual strategies in a vague representation of […]
