What Wand of Fireballs?

Monday, December 20th, 2004

After the shenanigans of the Mage stealing some spellbooks from the Rogue, which the Rogue was going to give him anyway, the magic item power struggle was escalated. Our Rogue was heard to mumble something about wanting to take some ranks in Use Magical Device so that he could then use wands and scrolls, thus […]

When the Rogue died, he was off exploring the enemy's lair with me, checking out some chests that we found whilst the others were looking after some Elf the party had rescued. In the chests were some spell books, something the Mage would very much like. As such, the Rogue put them in his backpack […]

Not-so-phantasmal Killer

Saturday, December 18th, 2004

Having seen our Rogue die earlier from a Phantasmal Killer, I was a little concerned when a similar illusion appeared in front of my face in the midst of a battle.

The adventuring party is in a crypt, leading deeper underground after opening up in to a series of […]

We have encountered several, similar objects in the enemy's lair and deduced that we do, indeed, need them to progress further in to the lair. We avoided them previously, as they appeared to be in positions that just screamed out 'TRAP'. We weren't wrong with this appraisal, as I found out earlier, losing most of […]

Illusions Don't Hurt, Do They?

Thursday, December 2nd, 2004

Still in the enemy's lair, having set off however-many traps already, the Rogue finds a trap on a chest. He tells me that it's probably best if I, the only other person in the room with him, back away to a safe distance, which I do. From where I'm standing, I see a ghostly apparition […]
