A Boost to Wisdom Would Also Be Useful

Thursday, January 23rd, 2020

We are all invisible and sneaking through a tower of Dark Elf wizards in the Dark Elf capital city. It's good that we're invisible, frankly, but it still may not be good enough to simply be unseen. We also try to move quietly. Thanks to Krunch the Barbarian's new-found passion for being a Rogue, he […]

More Pintglassy

'You head towards the Sorcery Tower.' ''Saucery'? I was expecting something pointier.'

Someone's Been Naughty

Thursday, December 19th, 2019

After a seasonal encounter, we get to loot Father Christmas's sack, with random rolls on the wondrous items table. Reaching in to the sack, I am excited to find, 'Ooh, a +3 Quarterstaff!' Pigeonhole gets second pick, and pulls out, 'Ooh, a Robe of Scintillating Colours!' Krunch's expectations are high, when he pulls out, 'uhh, […]

How to Get a Blank Stare From Your GM

Thursday, December 19th, 2019

'Do you want to move your swarm of bats?' 'Sure.' They get moved. 'Hold on, if you move them there, you have to deal with the Wall of Thorns.' '...they can just fly over it.'

Continued King of Some Strange Subsection of Gnomes

Thursday, November 14th, 2019

We have a small army of mushrooms moving to battle a threat to their giant mushroom overlord, or something like that. We're a bit fuzzy about the details, but that doesn't mean we can't spot an infiltrator in our ranks, particularly when they are startled by the excellent crown I am wearing. Sure, some say […]

But Recovered Nonetheless

Thursday, October 24th, 2019

In our continued wanderings through the Underdark, Pigeonhole has been afflicted by spores. Those are never good. I have a plan, though, and it is amazing. I want to cast Blight and kill all plant life on Pigeonhole, with only a tiny bit of collateral damage to the host. Pigeonhole is not entirely convinced of […]

Well Volunteered

Thursday, October 3rd, 2019

The Modron army leads us onwards, until we find the device that they were after. It's a demon-neutralising device, or something like that, and it just so happens that various demon lords are wandering around the Underdark at the moment, and one is with the device in the cavern ahead. It's convenient, but still not […]

Imaginations Working Overtime

Monday, September 23rd, 2019

We've found an Instant Fortress, somewhat guarded by some undead beasties, but now it's ours and it's a good place to rest. Things get a little awkward, however, when the Modron army, found thanks to the Modron we rescued from the Beholder, ask if they can join us. 'Will they all fit?' 'It's a little […]

It Took an Arrow to the Cloaca

Thursday, September 12th, 2019

The Beholder is proving curiously difficult to engage in its lair, as if it has some kind of advantage from having constructed everything to fit its strengths. We can't get close to it, at least not safely, and if its not safe then we are in full view of all of its eyes. Even so, […]

It Doesn't Even Need a Called Shot

Thursday, September 5th, 2019

We find the Beholder in its lair, but doesn't take too kindly to our asking to have one of its eyes. As we find ourselves rather at a disadvantage, we have to adjust our tactics, resulting in Krunch pulling out a Longbow that no one knew he had. 'This doesn't get much use, but here […]
