Falling Without Style

Tuesday, September 30th, 2014

'Ulagor gives you a crash course on the controls of the glider.' 'Sounds great, but can he give us a different kind of course?' We manage to get the glider launched, which isn't too difficult, seeing as how we just pushed it off the side of a five-hundred foot high mountain. Keeping it flying is […]

Dumb Question of the Week

'I presume none of your characters has flown a glider before?'

It Comes Fully Equipped with a Papoose

Tuesday, September 30th, 2014

Only the head of the dragon is all that remains after some weird immortality pact went a bit awry. I wasn't really paying attention. I should have been, because something to do with the One Hundred was keeping the magical onyx mountain upright, and now that we've slaughtered them all it is becoming unstable. The […]

Tactical Manoeuvre

Tuesday, September 23rd, 2014

Salvador leaps in to action! But Thrak is enlarged and in the doorway, completely blocking access to the enemies just outside. Salvador has a ranged weapon, but he has also just applied magic oil to his melee weapon, and it seems a waste to ignore it. He could go outside to try to flank the […]

Stick 'em With the Pointy End

'I'm going to rub magic oil on my weapon.' 'You're greasing up your shaft?' 'No, just the tip.'

Disappearing in to the Character

Tuesday, September 23rd, 2014

Skeletons pile through the door of the farmhouse we're staying in. That's fine, we have two clerics on hand. Aggar, our own cleric, a cleric of the Sun Domain, has turning undead as a specialty. Torrent, the NPC cleric in our charge, waits for Aggar to destroy the skeletons before bothering to try herself. It's […]

Worth the Wait

Tuesday, September 23rd, 2014

'Does someone want to play Torrent?' Our NPC cleric is becoming something of a burden for the GM to run, given that we are starting a fight against a dozen other NPCs, and the GM is pretty much asking what we want her to do most of the time anyway. We may as well take […]

Unnaming the NPCs

Thursday, September 11th, 2014

'This is captain...' Oh dear, the GM doesn't know the name of an NPC off the top of his head and needs time to find the reference in the adventure. This can only feed in to our tendency to rename all NPCs to something we actually have a chance of remembering. '...Sausage?' 'Sausage?! Sausage?! If […]

A Change From Mummy Rot

Thursday, September 11th, 2014

'You pass the final hurdle, and approach the dragon's cave. Sulphur hangs heavy in the air, the sounds of breeding... uh, breathing...' 'The sound of breeding is not what you want to hear when entering a dragon's lair.' 'Let's send Duncan in first, wearing a fake tail and a bow in his hair. "Buggered by […]

Backstabber Barbarian

Thursday, September 4th, 2014

Travelling south, the day draws on. We could enter the Fire Forest of TPK, as we have spells that will let us endure the heat, but perhaps it would be better to spend the first night outside of the forest and save some of the magic. Thankfully, a farmhouse is located a short distance north […]
