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 […]

Not Quite a Knock Spell

Thursday, May 10th, 2012

'I still like my plan', says Ganelon. We have a lead on the whereabouts of another dead pathfinder, and once we get her remains back we can use a grave candle to learn more information to let us get in to Delvehaven. 'I've not heard it yet. And I'm not sure I want to.' 'We […]

Trusting the Paladin

Thursday, April 19th, 2012

The wizard's broken the rules of combat. A plea to the arena boss has our portcullis open, and we dash in to join the fray, helping our paladin defeat our foe. As it turns out, he doesn't need much help. We shuffle around a bit, but it's Ganelon's ability to smite evil, and its power […]

You Can Run, But You Can't Dodge

Thursday, April 19th, 2012

The battle between summoned creatures has gone a bit awry. Our paladin has slain all the lemure devils his opponent has thrown his way, and now the wizard has got a bit tetchy about losing a contest he has been used to winning. The wizard has teleported in to the arena, bypassing the portcullis used […]

Meta-gaming the System

Thursday, April 12th, 2012

The day of the fight between summoned monsters and our paladin has arrived. We go shopping to look for any spells or items that may help us, boosted by divvying out the party pool. The split isn't equal, though, as Skelra has to pay for my busted front door, and gem-encrusted adamantium doesn't come cheap. […]

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 […]

Our Summoned Creatures Don't Last Long

Thursday, April 12th, 2012

We're entering ourselves in to a kind of gladiatorial combat, but we're not entirely sure why. We tracked down the bust of a pathfinder—which is actually the pathfinder himself, turned to stone and missing some parts—to the owner of the gladiator arena, and then wondered what we were meant to do next. A bit of […]

And Don't Whistle Nonchalantly

Tuesday, April 3rd, 2012

My door's broken in! There also seems to be a copper standing next to it, and as Brennan, Ganelon, and I are walking back there to meet up with Skelra and Afutavere I am keen to find out what's gone wrong. I'm stopped short, however, by what looks like a homunculus of Skelra, jigging around […]

In a Maze of Twisty References

Tuesday, April 3rd, 2012

It's back to the screaming demon head in my bedroom, who calms down enough to mention a name. The name sounds familiar. 'Is that the mayor who imprisoned the demon with the glaive?' But we're not supposed to mention the glaive, it being intelligent and evil, as our paladin doesn't think he can hear it […]

Maybe it's Only a Partial Gate to Hell

Thursday, February 9th, 2012

We have the Chelish Crux and are out of the Asmodean Knot. I suppose we should take the Crux to the pathfinder who asked us to retrieve it. Or we could open it first, just in case. We don't know what will happen and it may be best to be prepared. 'If we open this […]
