Maybe a Silent Image Would Help

Thursday, February 21st, 2019

Our barbarian has been poisoned, which is causing him some consternation, not least of which because 'we don't even know how the poison has been administered', making it difficult to avoid repeated doses. 'Up the bumhole, I imagine.' 'I think I would have noticed that.' 'I'm not saying that's what happened, I am just imagining […]

And the Plot Moves on

Thursday, January 24th, 2019

The great feast is interrupted with an assassination attempt on the Dwarf King. We foil it, of course, but 'This just confirms that there is something stirring in the Underdark', says the King, 'something that we will have to deal with.' 'I hope that's the royal 'we'.'

What Goes Around

Thursday, January 24th, 2019

After an initial audience with the Dwarf King, we are invited as guests to a great feast. When everyone is seated, we are asked to introduce ourselves. 'I am', I say, casting Thaumaturgy to make my voice boom, 'Charmandrathrax', pausing for effect and casting a second Thaumaturgy to cause some ground tremors, 'The Combustrous—' A […]

The Fantasy Equivalent of Light Reading

We are invited to see the Dwarf King, and are led to his throne room where he greets us. 'We have heard of your exploits. Please share your tales with me. There have been great rumblings, down in the depths.' 'Um, what kind of 'throne' is he sitting on exactly?'

Here's the Thing...

The party splits up, heading in two directions to two different cities, desperate to not just be sent right back in to the Underdark just because someone thinks it would be a dramatic turn. But, of course, this has been considered. A crow lands on a post ahead of the two of us who chose […]

But We'll Think About it

Thursday, January 10th, 2019

We finally make it out of the Underdark, with each of us swearing never to reenter that place, mostly because the GM has a good third of the adventure to go. Until the inevitable rails hit us, we head to the nearest inn to rest and recuperate. We follow signs of civilisation until we reach […]

An Otherwise Good Idea

A Ray of Sickness hits our Cleric. It hits quite hard. Somewhat critically, in fact. 'Can I use Thunderclap in retaliation?' 'No, because you have to be within 5' to use the ability. And because you're unconscious.'

'Are they wiggling in an aggressive way?' – Krunch, our fearless barbarian.

Have They Wet Themselves Too?

As we partially fail to stop a ritual summoning from occurring, a vile fiend rises from the depths of a dark lake in front of us. Our plan is to leg it. We just hope we're going in the right direction. 'There are other kuatoa running the same way as you.' 'We run like fish-men?'

It Must Be Quite the Hovel

Thursday, October 25th, 2018

The chief of the kuatoa finds his tribe in the midst of a factional split. As fate would have it, his daughter is the leader of the opposing faction, and he asks us if we would help him try to mend the rift. 'Of course. Where can we find her?' 'She lives in the ground […]
