Just Asking Questions

Thursday, October 25th, 2018

'The kuatoa walks with you to his village. If you have any questions, this would be a good time to ask them.' 'What month is it?' 'It's, uh...' 'How do you keep time in the Underdark?' 'With, I, uh...' 'Do you celebrate birthdays?' 'Birthdays?' 'Or do you hatch from eggs?' 'I'm... not sure...' 'Do you […]

They'll Know What it Means

Thursday, October 11th, 2018

After the rockfall, we appear to be trapped. Exploring this way and that finds slimes and what-not, but no exit, beyond water beginning to pour through a widening crack in the rock ceiling at one dead end. But in one direction is an area of worked rock, with rooms up a staircase. The only problem, […]

There Was Time for a Ritual

Thursday, October 4th, 2018

'As you move down the corridor, a strange sensation comes over you, and you realise that the very ground you are walking on is starting to tremble. The tremble turns to shaking, a mighty rumbling comes from every direction, and you realise that the whole corridor is starting to collapse around you! Small rocks fall […]

Light on Foot, Light on Communication

Thursday, September 20th, 2018

We are escaping a Drow compound, and have come to a vast chasm, across which stretches webbing, as far as can be seen. As we ponder our options, a couple of goblins appear and, once I convince my colleagues not to just slaughter them, the goblins offer to guide us across the webs to the […]

'The mayor gives you but a paltry reward.' 'That's okay, I like chicken.'

This Encounter May Be More Challenging

'Coming towards you is a man-shark! It's bigger and meaner-looking than the one you saw in the village!' 'To be fair, the one in the village was already dead.'

A Surprise to be Sure

Thursday, July 12th, 2018

Moving around to a different side of the sewer has us approaching a different boss with their own faction of goblins. We're pretty sure they have their own small goblin army, because we've spotted some of them hiding in the rubble ahead of us. 'Can I take a shot at them, take them by surprise?' […]

Idea versus Implementation

Thursday, July 5th, 2018

We meet the notorious Slimy Jack, in his throne room. He is missing an arm, sort of, having an octopus tentacle in its place, and has quite a retinue of mutated goblins. 'Adventurers! Come in, come in. Sit down.' 'He seems nice enough.' 'I'm thinking about firing an arrow clear across the room, piercing him […]

A Poopy Solution

Monday, June 25th, 2018

We find a young girl in the sewer, who we learn has been separated from her mother. Quite what her mum was doing down here with her daughter we can't say, and we don't know where she is anyway. The girl is from the town which is two days' away from the exit, and we […]

Technically Not a Lie

Thursday, June 7th, 2018

We're in the sewers, feeling at home. A little girl is rather more desperate to get out of here, though, which has something to do with a sewer monster somewhere around here. 'You will protect me, won't you? You won't let the creature eat me like it did Timmy, will you?' 'I won't let it, […]
