Here be Hydras

Thursday, September 27th, 2007

We have a plan to find the base of the captured pirates! It's not a very good plan, partly because an NPC didn't think of it, and mostly because it was my idea. I decided to ask the pirate with the foppish hat where the base was, and do so forcefully. At first, he didn't […]

Thar Be Pirates!

Wednesday, September 19th, 2007

After our daring destruction of a cult dedicated to the downfall of civilisation, but more particularly that of the city we are currently visiting, we return from the slums of The Flow back to the Foot of the city, and resume a more normal state of existence.
