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 […]

'Hail, travellers! What are you doing here? I thought the mayor had closed the town.' 'Oh, he has. We sneaked in.' 'Well, I hope you know what you're doing.' 'Ha ha ha, nope!'

Plus They Live by the Sea

Thursday, May 10th, 2018

We are trying to find food after being shipwrecked. On encountering a village by the coast, we enquire as to what they have on offer. Not much, it seems. 'Only fish? Are you getting enough vitamin C?' 'Vitamin what?' 'C.' 'Vitamin what?' 'C.' 'Vitamin what?' 'I really can't believe that you have no concept of […]

Must Be a Halfling Thing

Thursday, May 3rd, 2018

We meet a tradesperson on the road. 'Good day, what are you selling?' 'I trade in dyes!' 'Oh, that's a coincidence, as we deal in dies too. That's a peculiar conjugation though.'

I Imagine You're Right

Thursday, August 17th, 2017

'Can we see the god through the portal?' 'It's just shimmering light at the moment. It's like the opening of a wormhole.' 'That doesn't help. I've not actually seen any wormholes.' 'Use your imagination.' 'Okay, in my imagination the opening of a wormhole is like a full-blown IMAX experience. We see the god in amazing […]
