I Hereby Order You to Cease Any and All Supernatural Activity

Thursday, April 2nd, 2009

We have fought our way to the depths of the Keep on the Shadowfell, taking care to map as we go lest we forfeit our payment due, and finally the portal to hell is revealed to us. With Iago's falling in to a pool of blood announcing our arrival the cultist leader and cleric of […]

Maybe he was Thinking of the Draconic Alphabet

Thursday, April 2nd, 2009

It seems like time slowed significantly, taking us months to move through the doors from the previous fight with the undead to this new room, but we finally make it through the temporal quagmire. In the new room is a gaping hole down which blood is trickling. The blood is flowing from an altar ahead […]

Back to Business

Thursday, January 15th, 2009

It seems like we have been in this dingy room without making any progress for a month! Maybe my state of near-death affected my perception of time, but everything is becoming clear now. Before we move on we check the state of everyone's health. Adran is a little concerned, 'I've only got eight hit points […]

I Know This One

Thursday, November 27th, 2008

After battling an endless supply of skeletons jumping randomly out of the sarcophagi we explore beyond the crypt's far door. Another, more imposing sarcophagus greets our view as we pass in to the antechamber. A far more threatening skeleton climbs out of its resting place as it senses our presence. Luckily, we are able to […]

Reading the Unreadable

Thursday, November 20th, 2008

Delving deeper in to the corridors and rooms of the Keep on the Shadowfell we find some engravings on a wall. 'Can anyone read Draconic?', asks the DM. It turns out that our warlock is versed in the language of the dragons. 'There is some indecipherable Draconic written on the wall in front of you.' […]

This is an Outrage!

Thursday, November 13th, 2008

Following our instincts we push through a door that has 'STAY OUT' scrawled in the moss covering it, only to be surprised by a blue slime monster surfacing in a pool of rancid water. Who knew? Our warlock gets attacked and hit by the monster, which provokes an incredulous response from the spellcaster. 'My turn. […]

No One Expects the Warlock Inquisition

Thursday, September 25th, 2008

We encounter an imprisoned goblin in our exploration of the keep, telling us he fell foul of the boss goblin's favour, which prompts a lengthy discussion on whether we should release him and let him accompany us. If he really is friendly after we release him then he can guide us through the keep and […]

Failure to Communicate

Thursday, September 4th, 2008

Bravely inching our way through a waterfall in to what we believe is a den of kobolds, after fighting a bunch of kobolds outside the waterfall, no one is terribly surprised when kobolds and adventurers end up standing face-to-face. Moving swiftly in to action, the ranger adopts the Arnold Rimmer approach to combat by attempting […]

Fourth Edition Introduction

Thursday, August 14th, 2008

Hired by a doddery academic to map out an old abandoned keep near the town of Winterhaven, I join a disparate band of adventurers. As we start our journey the introductions are made. 'What's your name?' 'Iago.' 'That's nice, Argo. Me Jane. HA HA HA!' 'No, Iago. *sigh* Do you have no culture?' For some […]
