Lacking in Aim

Thursday, September 27th, 2012

Two vampires down, and the third coffin makes us suspect there's another one nearby. First, we take stock of what we've gathered recently, Ganelon in charge of the pool of loot. 'Did anyone take the heavy repeating crossbow?' 'Yes, I did', comes a disembodied force, the GM pointing out that 'I'm sick of you lot […]

No Sunshine Never Killed No Vampire

Thursday, September 20th, 2012

Delving down beneath the now-shattered stone desk leads us to a room with what look like coffins in them. And a vampire. And some vampire spawn. All looks pretty bleak, as we wonder who will be dominated by the undead monster, until he chooses our ranger as his target. 'Oh, okay. At least Afutavere won't […]

Stupid Question of the Week

Thursday, August 16th, 2012

'Can I make a knowledge (engineering) check to see what the effects would be of smashing the tank of water?'

Taking on a Triceratops

Thursday, August 16th, 2012

'Perception checks, please.' Dice skitter across the table to land on a variety of numbers, such is the random nature inherent in the process. 'Those of you with good rolls hear the sound of tables breaking, and then you see this', says the GM, as he places a rather large miniature on to the map. […]

Heading for a Fall

Tuesday, August 7th, 2012

In exploring our way around the Pathfinder lodge of Delvehaven we come across a wooden bridge. Naturally, it's rickety. 'I'll try crossing the bridge', I say, knowing that my acrobatic qualities, agility, and ability to fall moderate distances safely may well come in useful. 'I can probably cope with it even if it's actually as […]

Used Charges Are Wasted Charges

Thursday, May 17th, 2012

Shadows attack! Their incorporeal touch drains the strength of those it passes through, and Afutavere, Skelra, and Ganelon are all affected. Thankfully, some heavy hitting from the paladin and some commanding words from the wizard help us prevail. Now we just need to get our strength back. Liberal use of a wand of lesser restoration […]

More Confused Than Surprised, But Still Surprised

Thursday, May 17th, 2012

Our rowing boat is floating near a portal that is illuminated by a wayfinder. Now all we have to do is recite some oath and we can retrieve the hidden cache. Or we could, if murky shadows weren't coalescing all around us. We are asked to make perception checks, the highest of which is 26. […]

Beach Barbecue

Thursday, May 17th, 2012

To get in to Delvehaven safely we could probably use what's been stored in a hidden cache a pathfinder created. Naturally, the hidden cache is not easily accessible, even once we know its hiding place, and we have to go offshore at Cutlass Bay to open an inter-dimensional space. It's all in a day's work. […]

The Ranger Hits!

Thursday, May 10th, 2012

No one answers the door of the monastic order of assassin nuns, so we do what comes naturally. We let the ranger pick the lock. And he succeeds, without even setting off a trap. That level of competence is rather unexpected. But we're in, and we're looking for an urn of cremated remains of a […]

Try Saying That to His Face

Thursday, April 12th, 2012

The day before we're putting Ganelon in to the gladiator arena to fight some summoned monsters, we are having dinner in the inn when a stranger approaches us. He introduces himself as '... Youvegototbekiddingme'. 'That's a curious name, sir. Is it Orcish?' 'No, I'm, uh, Mantrithor Thrax', he says, stumbling over his name again but […]
