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 […]

On a Quest to Find Ourselves

Thursday, January 15th, 2015

Maybe we shouldn't be pairing up ugly and uglier to get information from someone, but we are. Let's just not let our expectations get too high. Thrak and Salvador enter the shop and approach the owner, hoping to get some information about a stolen dragon's egg. Surprisingly, they make some progress, getting the owner to […]

All the Charm of a Dwarf

'Salvador can do the talking, as he has a better charisma score than me.' 'No I don't', says Salvador, looking at his character sheet. 'Do I?' 'Mine's 6.' 'Holy crap, I do. It's 8.' Negative ability modifiers for both! Why are either of them trying to get some important information from an NPC? The situation […]

Hodor

Thursday, January 8th, 2015

'You and, um, I'm sorry, I've forgotten your names. 'That's Thrak, and he's Hodor', says Salvador. 'Hodor?!' says our cleric, somewhat insulted. 'See? It must be right.'

It's an Oldie, Like Most Dwarfs

Thursday, January 8th, 2015

It's after the fight with the Erinyes devil, and most people are badly hurt. That includes our cleric, who is only still alive thanks to some fortune, and a passing stranger who we were able to persuade to use our healing wand a couple of times. 'Can I get some healing?', asks Thrak, now that […]

Requiring a More Powerful Spell

Thursday, December 4th, 2014

Stalking someone who is known to have been looking for us, Salvador gives away his position by some lacklustre hiding. The woman confronts him, and rather than running away Salvador decides to hear what she has to say for a moment. This turns out to be not quite the best plan ever, particularly as he […]

Any Distinguishing Features?

Thursday, December 4th, 2014

We travel to the north of the city to meet with our cleric's mentor. As we arrive, other guests are leaving through another door, and we catch but mere glimpses of them. A couple are half-orcs. The third is human, but only just. He has tentacles on his arm, and teeth growing out of one […]
