Don't Be Afraid to Think Big

Thursday, February 13th, 2020

Having defeated Orcus, there's the question of what to do with the rod that he dropped. Well, the others are questioning it, I'm just gonna claim it as rightfully mine. I go to pick it up. 'Do you think you can even lift it? It's quite big.' 'It is magical. Maybe it will resize, if […]

Grease is the Word

Thursday, January 30th, 2020

Our stealthy facade has been dropped in the wizards' tower, thanks to various traps and monsters that we have encountered. We're still trying not to be seen, but it's tricky when you can actually be seen, and there are people around. And a stone golem, in the form of a giant spider thumping around in […]

A Boost to Wisdom Would Also Be Useful

Thursday, January 23rd, 2020

We are all invisible and sneaking through a tower of Dark Elf wizards in the Dark Elf capital city. It's good that we're invisible, frankly, but it still may not be good enough to simply be unseen. We also try to move quietly. Thanks to Krunch the Barbarian's new-found passion for being a Rogue, he […]

Someone's Been Naughty

Thursday, December 19th, 2019

After a seasonal encounter, we get to loot Father Christmas's sack, with random rolls on the wondrous items table. Reaching in to the sack, I am excited to find, 'Ooh, a +3 Quarterstaff!' Pigeonhole gets second pick, and pulls out, 'Ooh, a Robe of Scintillating Colours!' Krunch's expectations are high, when he pulls out, 'uhh, […]

Well Volunteered

Thursday, October 3rd, 2019

The Modron army leads us onwards, until we find the device that they were after. It's a demon-neutralising device, or something like that, and it just so happens that various demon lords are wandering around the Underdark at the moment, and one is with the device in the cavern ahead. It's convenient, but still not […]

Imaginations Working Overtime

Monday, September 23rd, 2019

We've found an Instant Fortress, somewhat guarded by some undead beasties, but now it's ours and it's a good place to rest. Things get a little awkward, however, when the Modron army, found thanks to the Modron we rescued from the Beholder, ask if they can join us. 'Will they all fit?' 'It's a little […]

It Took an Arrow to the Cloaca

Thursday, September 12th, 2019

The Beholder is proving curiously difficult to engage in its lair, as if it has some kind of advantage from having constructed everything to fit its strengths. We can't get close to it, at least not safely, and if its not safe then we are in full view of all of its eyes. Even so, […]

It Doesn't Even Need a Called Shot

Thursday, September 5th, 2019

We find the Beholder in its lair, but doesn't take too kindly to our asking to have one of its eyes. As we find ourselves rather at a disadvantage, we have to adjust our tactics, resulting in Krunch pulling out a Longbow that no one knew he had. 'This doesn't get much use, but here […]

Barbarian versus Rogue

Thursday, September 5th, 2019

Krunch the Barbarian thinks he has gone as far with his barbarianism as he can, and chooses to train more as a Rogue from now on. He's quite excited by the opportunities this will allow. 'I can be stealthy now, if I want to be.' Pigeonhole, our actual Rogue, is happy to offer some advice. […]

And I Shall Cast Fireball with my Eyes Closed

Thursday, August 1st, 2019

'Which one shall I attack?' 'It's not a difficult choice, you only have two targets.' 'Three.' 'Two. That's me, and you know it.' 'I'm doing a Reckless Attack.' 'Okay, three'.
