Putting the RP in to RPG

Thursday, March 29th, 2012

We've fallen back from our advance positions and are now back in the heart of the village to protect it from the goblin army. Along with the villagers, we have some militia from a nearby town, a few druids, and a, um, 'why is there a Mummy Lord here?' 'Oh, that's me', says Thamir. 'I […]

Dwarven Brewmaster

Thursday, March 29th, 2012

The goblins are coming and the ogre is drunk. A couple of the party members are beginning to regret trading the ogre's cooperation in protecting the village for beer, particularly when the quantity turned out to be all that the local inn had. 'I was going to take Craft (Beer) but apparently the required skill […]

Accidental Feat

Thursday, March 22nd, 2012

The advancing goblin horde gets close enough for their rank and file to start charging towards our defences. Davor takes this as his cue to transform! He quaffs a potion of enlarge potion and grows to be pretty big indeed. And still he tries to hide behind the barricade as the goblin archers continue to […]

Point Blank Shot

Thursday, March 22nd, 2012

It's the day of reckoning. Abandoning all pretence that we are here to solve the murder of a young girl, we have fortified the village and are watching a goblin army advance. Wolf riders and dozens of goblins are coming right for us! We're barricaded and protected, but there are lots of the little buggers. […]

Elemental Devastation

Tuesday, March 13th, 2012

Elementals attack! Periwinkle attacks back! Our cavalier is in his ele—um, well, he's comfortable with being out in the open, which gives his riding wolf room to charge. His lance strikes a vulnerable spot on the elemental and he scores a critical hit. Because of feats and character traits, his D6+3 damage is tripled from […]

In our efforts to find out more about the goblins and protect the village we learn about some witches that live out in the woods. One local knows quite a bit about them, including that one crone is blind and has a leopard. Davor mishears this and is a little taken aback. 'She has a […]

Keep it to Yourself

Tuesday, March 13th, 2012

The goblins have attacked the village, and catching one of their scouts reveals their plans to mount a larger attack in a few days' time. We talk to the villagers to help them prepare defences, and one of them offers some advice. 'You know who's a good fighter? Big Fred.' 'Big Fred?', says Periwinkle, 'is […]

Stupid Question of the Week

Tuesday, March 13th, 2012

'Is there an inn in this village?'

One Man and His Phalanx

Tuesday, March 13th, 2012

Our little band of incompetence is joined by another adventurer. Well, I say joined, but it's more that he is driven in to the village in his own carriage. Great, a posh twerp on his gap year thinking that adventuring is all fun and games. 'Don't take it the wrong way, chaps. Mother and father […]

Tasteless Tongue of Half-orc

Tuesday, March 6th, 2012

A goblin scouting party is spotted in the woods. We consider approaching them as a gesture of goodwill, as well as to see if we can get any information from them. 'Shall we go up to them?', asks Periwinkle. 'Shall we roll for initiative?', asks Davor, in his typical manner. 'Let's hog-tie the half-orc', Periwinkle […]
