Putting the RP in to RPG

Thursday, March 29th, 2012

We've fallen back from our advance positions and are now back in the heart of the village to protect it from the goblin army. Along with the villagers, we have some militia from a nearby town, a few druids, and a, um, 'why is there a Mummy Lord here?' 'Oh, that's me', says Thamir. 'I […]

Accidental Feat

Thursday, March 22nd, 2012

The advancing goblin horde gets close enough for their rank and file to start charging towards our defences. Davor takes this as his cue to transform! He quaffs a potion of enlarge potion and grows to be pretty big indeed. And still he tries to hide behind the barricade as the goblin archers continue to […]

Point Blank Shot

Thursday, March 22nd, 2012

It's the day of reckoning. Abandoning all pretence that we are here to solve the murder of a young girl, we have fortified the village and are watching a goblin army advance. Wolf riders and dozens of goblins are coming right for us! We're barricaded and protected, but there are lots of the little buggers. […]

Elemental Devastation

Tuesday, March 13th, 2012

Elementals attack! Periwinkle attacks back! Our cavalier is in his ele—um, well, he's comfortable with being out in the open, which gives his riding wolf room to charge. His lance strikes a vulnerable spot on the elemental and he scores a critical hit. Because of feats and character traits, his D6+3 damage is tripled from […]

Keep it to Yourself

Tuesday, March 13th, 2012

The goblins have attacked the village, and catching one of their scouts reveals their plans to mount a larger attack in a few days' time. We talk to the villagers to help them prepare defences, and one of them offers some advice. 'You know who's a good fighter? Big Fred.' 'Big Fred?', says Periwinkle, 'is […]

One Man and His Phalanx

Tuesday, March 13th, 2012

Our little band of incompetence is joined by another adventurer. Well, I say joined, but it's more that he is driven in to the village in his own carriage. Great, a posh twerp on his gap year thinking that adventuring is all fun and games. 'Don't take it the wrong way, chaps. Mother and father […]

Looking for the Unusual

Tuesday, March 6th, 2012

The bar brawl behind us, and explained to the local magistrate, we're off looking for local goblin tribes, to see if we can get any information from them. We're scouting through the woods when we think we ought to see something, and are asked to make perception checks. 'I get +1 if the check is […]

Seized or Stopped?

Tuesday, February 28th, 2012

We travel by coach for two days north, to the village where the crime occurred. We get most of the way there before being ambushed by goblins, which is pretty good going, and even the ambush is pretty half-hearted. It seems that there is a fairly peaceful coexistence of goblins and humans, and that these […]

'Half' Orc

Tuesday, February 28th, 2012

Four mighty adventurers are brought together to solve the perilous case of the missing girl. Four mighty second-level adventurers. Periwinkle, gnome cavalier; Brock Ironfist, dwarf barbarian; Githsashit, gnome rogue; and Davor, half-orc barbarian/rogue. 'Half-orc and half-what, exactly? Half-goblin? Half-gnoll?' 'Human, you annoying little prick.' 'No, really. Half-kobold? I need to know.' 'Don't mock me. I'm […]
