I am Jack's Vented Spleen

Thursday, June 14th, 2012

Making our first tentative steps in to the murky ruins, supposedly infested with undead, we encounter not skeletons but a hypnotoad. The hypnotoad's eyes glow with a vicious brightness, hypnotising all but me in the room, Jack the half-orc drunken brute who was rifling through papers in an adjacent room, and Kyras who has been […]

Two Firsts

Thursday, December 22nd, 2011

Will looks back through the archives, curious to see when he joined the group, simultaneously getting a feel for just how long it takes us to work through an adventure. He finds the time he joined, when he takes over from the ninja to show everyone that it can be an impressive class, which is […]

Making Our Escape

Thursday, June 3rd, 2010

Only Kalarel remains before us. Once defeated, our mission will be nearly complete. Adran moves to strike what is hoped the final blow and Adoni-zedek assists, granting big bonuses for each of Adran's attacks. Getting a +35 bonus for his main weapon and +33 for the off-hand Adran can hardly miss. But he tries his […]

Hopelessly Dominated to You

Tuesday, May 25th, 2010

The final ghoul serving Kalarel bites in to me, causing me to stiffen and become immobilised. It is a queer form of immoblisation, as I can still do jumping jacks if I so desire, but not being able to move voluntarily from my position supposedly makes the exarch's next attack more potent, even if I […]

Enjoying my Weapon Whilst it Lasts

Tuesday, May 25th, 2010

Our final battle with the exarch of Orcus continues. His minions have been whittled down a little but he is still protected by a leech (or lich, his accent is unclear) and an immoleth. I have got myself next to exarch Kalarel, hoping to draw his attacks away from the more vulnerable Adoni-zedek who he […]

Final Fight

Thursday, May 13th, 2010

The final fight is before us. There are large bonescythes, ghasts being stinky, zombies dragging cauldrons, and fel vampire minions spewing from a side room. There is also a lich or a leech, we're not quite sure, but it probably wants us to bleed either way. And even though the boss hasn't turned up yet […]

Dazing the GM

Thursday, May 6th, 2010

It's the zombie apocalypse! We have slain Gyldra the butcher and her pets are revolting, and not just because they are rotting animated corpses. The zombie pens break under the weight of the surging undead, and the two goristro helpers we killed come back to life, all to avenge their fallen 'mother'. But we have […]

There is no Knowledge (Maths)

Thursday, April 29th, 2010

The Hag is not susceptible to helping our plan to overthrow Kalarel and tries to send a warning with a tiny construct. I stomp it in to pieces which pretty much guarantees repercussions. Even without the construct that was running away from us, we are faced with the hag and her two minions, a large […]

Make War Not Love

Thursday, April 29th, 2010

'You wake up after having the undead skin grafts.' That's a relief! It would have been quite a ruse to kill the heroes of the adventure whilst unconscious after agreeing to cosmetic surgery. Maybe we can even turn the situation to our advantage. 'Does the operation count as an extended rest?' Apparently not. But two […]

You'll Find Him a Good Bleeder

Thursday, April 15th, 2010

Baldran is defeated and he agrees to assist us with the ritual. But only on the condition that Arath, priest of Orcus, personally gives him the order. That's okay, we are off to talk to her next. It doesn't take much convincing to get Arath on our side, not when I wield and turn in […]
