Rolling for Maximum Damage

Thursday, April 14th, 2005

Having bought and sold everything, everyone fully rested, new spells learnt, and a familiar with a short expected life summoned, the party heads back to the dungeon of doom. We head back to where we saw the stairs down the to next level without any troubles, and proceed to delve deeper in to the dungeon. […]

You'll What?

Thursday, April 14th, 2005

Before we started the gaming session our DM took us completely by surprise, saying, 'At some point during this evening I'm going to be asking you all to roll some D20s'. Uh, you don't say.

Encouraging Words

Thursday, April 14th, 2005

After killing the evil dead we headed back to town so that our Mage could learn some new spells and we could buy and sell some loot. In this down-time the Mage also decides to summon a familiar, a weasel in this case. The first thing the DM says after the familiar is summoned is, […]

What Not To Do, Part II

Thursday, April 14th, 2005

Why did I ignore the message contained in my own advice when having the following e-mail conversation with the DM? The DM's lines are emphasised. Right, a quick question with regards to old-to-new rules. If something has a +3/15 or +5/20 weapon resistance, what does that translate in to 3.5 rules? (holy crap) Um, I […]

Death Blow!

Friday, April 8th, 2005

Exploring the level of the dungeon we were on we encountered a rather ominous-looking door, completely black and with runes carved in to the surface. Our Paladin detected some strong evil presence on the other side of it. After the fight with the ogres and a couple of other minor skirmishes we decided that perhaps […]

Treasure Spittoon

Thursday, April 7th, 2005

Finding a room in the dungeon with nothing in it apart from a spittoon in the corner, the natural curiosity of some party members gets the better of them. It is quickly decided that the spittoon, full of a disgusting fluid that I don't really want to go in to detail about, should be checked […]

Sitting on the Dock of Booty Bay

Thursday, April 7th, 2005

Sitting on the dock of Booty Bay, watching the ships come in and then go back out again, I was taking in the glorious sight of the sun setting over the sea. Just as the sun was reflecting off the water, I, too, was reflecting on things. It was then that I had a moment […]

What Not To Do, Part I

Thursday, April 7th, 2005

Before a gaming session, do not gleefully remind the DM of how you killed his character in the previous adventure.

Right Bank, Wrong Branch

Monday, April 4th, 2005

I was pootling around Stormwind City when someone asked on the trade channel where he could find Spider's Silk. After a couple of replies I decided that I probably could afford to offer some of the Spider's Silk I hold in the bank, for my tailoring patterns. I ask him how much he would like, […]

Guess the Ages!

Monday, April 4th, 2005

Okay, it's time for a quick game: guess the relative ages of the players! But first, some background for the game. My main character, a Human Warlock called Faust, is an enchanter, which means I turn all the neat magical items I find in to dust so that I can make other magical items more […]
