Well, I Have Nothing to Say

Thursday, January 5th, 2017

Rescuing Nerrick and Pasha mostly worked, but they were inconveniently stripped of all their stuff whilst captured. Those fiends! Gone are Nerrick's armour and magic weapons, gone is Pasha's spellbook. Do we need them? Well, maybe. We formulate a plan to go back and get them. The plan is to run in to the encampment, […]

I Couldn't See That I Was Blindfolded

Thursday, December 1st, 2016

Pasha, Nerrick and Herbivore have been captured. This aggression will not stand. Thankfully, a couple of ally scouts have been sent to find out what we're up to, and are willing to help rescue my colleagues. An enemy scout, killed in the earlier melee, is dug out of the snow and his uniform taken, which, […]

Is It a Hoarse Screeching?

Thursday, November 24th, 2016

'You hear a screech above, and looking up you see a creature that is half-eagle, half-horse flying down towards you. The odd thing is that there's a woman riding it.' 'Mmm, I don't think that's the odd thing about this.'

Give Pasha a Hand

Thursday, November 17th, 2016

A decrepit door is nearly our downfall, as our dexterity-based party is nearly turned around when pushing with all our might does nothing. Only by happening to pull a strong creature out of Pasha's Bag of Tricks do we get past this obstinate obstacle. Inside the ancient tower we find the resting place of the […]

'Before you even get to the junction, you hear a banging and a horse shouting.' '... what's it shouting?'

Glass Half-full of a Water God

Thursday, October 13th, 2016

We vanquish a necromancer who made his home inside some barrows and was using the reanimated corpses of a nearby ex-village as labour. Barely has his cold body hit the floor when a phantom of dark swirling mist rises up from the Necromancer's corpse and addresses us. 'My Lord, Ehalazuhn, wishes to recognise your great […]

But it is Probably an Apt Metaphor

Thursday, October 6th, 2016

'There is a lantern ahead, a couple of miles away.' 'We shall go to investigate the latern.' 'So you're heading towards the light.' 'Stop making it sound so ominous.'

I Knew This Ages Ago

The spell 'Obscure Object' is ineffective against the Hipster.

Gravity is a Harsh Mistress

Thursday, September 22nd, 2016

Wyvern attack! We could be in trouble as it swoops down to rake us with its claws before climbing back out of range. But Pasha helps us out, casting a spell that blinds the creature. Now that it can't see us, the Wyvern can do little but flap around. Sadly, it doesn't land as Pasha […]

But Might Have Got More Hits Too

Thursday, September 15th, 2016

Have we found everything of value? How can we know, until someone casts Detect Magic? Pasha goes above and beyond the call of duty, not only casting the spell but making sonar noises as he searches for magic, 'Bing! Bing! Bing!', until I throw his pencil out of the room. We find a couple of […]
