From the Archives: How to Tell if You've Met a Goblin Before

Tuesday, August 25th, 2009

'These don't look like the goblins you've already fought.' 'Is that because the ones we've already fought are dead and these are alive?'

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 […]

Hobgoblin Croquet

Thursday, December 4th, 2008

The mapping of the keep is turning out to be rather more dangerous than we would have liked. Traps, goblins and zombies have all turned up to hinder our progress and, on top of that, there is a gate to hell that is apparently being opened somewhere inside too. I didn't learn about any of […]

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.' […]

They Are Actually Sharp?

Thursday, November 13th, 2008

It is gloomy in the Keep on Shadowfel and with a gate to hell being opened somewhere inside it is also not a place one wants to be stumbling around in the dark. 'What can we use for light in here?', asks Adran, our ranger. 'We can break out our sunrods, as they provide a […]

Back to the Keep

Thursday, November 13th, 2008

After what seems like the longest overnight stay in an inn in history we arise and head back to the Keep on Shadowfel to investigate the goblin threat within, prevent the opening of a gate to hell and, perhaps most importantly, to map the keep for a curious intellectual. We get paid for the mapping, […]

We Are Heroes

Thursday, October 9th, 2008

Investigating the old keep has turned up pit traps, goblins and hobgoblins, and rats and devil hounds. The few hours we have so far spent working through enemy-infested rooms have taken their toll on the party, with our Warlord's healing surges fully depleted and others running out quickly. It is time to rest. Rather than […]
