Further Reducing the One Hundred

Thursday, July 3rd, 2014

The second watchtower is silenced. We move up the mountain to the next bend in the path, where the second fortress stands. Rather than the lackadaisical approach to security seen at the first fortress, there are actual guards guarding this one. Two of them, standing outside the entrance. We'll just have to mount a full-out […]

Like a Natural

Thursday, July 3rd, 2014

One fortress cleared, one watchtower sorted. We continue to the next corner in the path, where a second watchtower is constructed. Toogood and I sneak up, silent as you like, and get to the rope ladder underneath. Now to see if we can catch them by surprise. 'Make Move Silently checks.' 'Natural 20.' 'Natural 20.' […]

Sounds Like a Tool, Though

'Gowan's not the sharpest cookie in the barrel.' We can tell.

But Maybe We Could Put Him on a Lead

Tuesday, June 17th, 2014

We've cleared the first guard house along the path up the mountain to the dragon. A couple of dozen of supposed elite fighters of the One Hundred lie slaughtered on the stones, which we step over to examine a couple of rooms on the far side of the courtyard. One is padlocked. The padlocked door […]

Assault on Dragon Mountain

Thursday, June 5th, 2014

We need to get to the top of Dragon Mountain, to find the supposed dragon in order to lift the curse on both Toogood and Farrel. We can't do this at night, because of the curse that puts the pair to sleep at sundown, so it means a daytime raid. First, we need to get […]

I Rarely Think Ill of my Companions

Tuesday, May 27th, 2014

It seems that we need to visit The Hill, supposedly where a red dragon lives, in order to get the enchantment on Toogood and Farrel lifted. There's just the problem of gaining access, what with the path up the hill being fortified and protected by a hundred armed men. 'You learn from local enquiries that […]

Sleeping in Soup

Tuesday, May 27th, 2014

Toogood and Farrel don't seem to be particularly injured, but being stabbed by a dagger whose blade dissolves can't be a good sign. Thankfully, we recovered an intact dagger from one of the slain attackers, which we take back to Marva, who is definitely not a dragon. Consulting her tomes of wisdom, Marva finds some […]

But it is Working Overtime

Thursday, February 20th, 2014

Either asking questions about the red dragon of Goldrock or Gowan the Bone Harvester has garnered us some unwanted attention. Toogood and Farrel are trying to gather some information together in a market square when they are asked to 'make a spot check'. Toogood is still looking for persimmon to make a fruit smoothie, but […]

And We'd Get Eaten by an Angry Dragon

Thursday, February 20th, 2014

The town of Goldrock has a dragon as its protector. Or so the story goes. Three hundred years ago a red dragon promised the town protection, on the condition that it was otherwise given its privacy. The town agreed, because who wouldn't, and created a unit of elite guards to be stationed in three fortresses […]

Better Than an Inn Creep

Thursday, February 20th, 2014

Gowan the Bone Harvester has become our only link to curious happenstances surrounding dragons and dragon-like abominations in the area. It would be good to question him about what he knows, so that we might uncover what's going on. However, Gowan was last seen heading with some haste out of the village, towards Goldrock. We […]
