I Set Fraz'Urb-luu Free

And all I got was this lousy Inspiration.

Catch the Breeze

Thursday, May 9th, 2019

We're in the Underdark, on a foldable ship, with the Demogorgan roaring in the distance but getting closer. We may need a burst of speed soon. Muffin has an idea about that. 'I'm going to go to the back of the boat, and face out from the back of the boat as best as possible.' […]

You Cannot Lie in the Zone of Truth

Thursday, April 11th, 2019

Something has been stolen from me, and I intend to find out who has it. My suspicions lie with our rogue, so I turn to him and 'I cast Zone of Truth!' 'You don't have Zone of Truth', says Krunch. 'Well, don't tell him that, magic is mostly showmanship anyways. Okay, gnome, you're now in […]

Cross-classing in to Pacifist

Thursday, March 7th, 2019

The duergar have been fighting the gnomes in this enclave for flimsy reasons, and although we've managed to calm the situation somewhat, tensions are high. Trying to deal with the duergar boss isn't helping matters either, as he is being pretty obstinate. As we leave the duergar quarter, to negotiate with the gnomes, we spy […]

Maybe a Silent Image Would Help

Thursday, February 21st, 2019

Our barbarian has been poisoned, which is causing him some consternation, not least of which because 'we don't even know how the poison has been administered', making it difficult to avoid repeated doses. 'Up the bumhole, I imagine.' 'I think I would have noticed that.' 'I'm not saying that's what happened, I am just imagining […]

And the Plot Moves on

Thursday, January 24th, 2019

The great feast is interrupted with an assassination attempt on the Dwarf King. We foil it, of course, but 'This just confirms that there is something stirring in the Underdark', says the King, 'something that we will have to deal with.' 'I hope that's the royal 'we'.'

What Goes Around

Thursday, January 24th, 2019

After an initial audience with the Dwarf King, we are invited as guests to a great feast. When everyone is seated, we are asked to introduce ourselves. 'I am', I say, casting Thaumaturgy to make my voice boom, 'Charmandrathrax', pausing for effect and casting a second Thaumaturgy to cause some ground tremors, 'The Combustrous—' A […]

The Fantasy Equivalent of Light Reading

Thursday, January 24th, 2019

We are invited to see the Dwarf King, and are led to his throne room where he greets us. 'We have heard of your exploits. Please share your tales with me. There have been great rumblings, down in the depths.' 'Um, what kind of 'throne' is he sitting on exactly?'

Here's the Thing...

Thursday, January 10th, 2019

The party splits up, heading in two directions to two different cities, desperate to not just be sent right back in to the Underdark just because someone thinks it would be a dramatic turn. But, of course, this has been considered. A crow lands on a post ahead of the two of us who chose […]

But We'll Think About it

Thursday, January 10th, 2019

We finally make it out of the Underdark, with each of us swearing never to reenter that place, mostly because the GM has a good third of the adventure to go. Until the inevitable rails hit us, we head to the nearest inn to rest and recuperate. We follow signs of civilisation until we reach […]
