Either Way, it's a Weird Relationship

Thursday, January 7th, 2016

Past the graveyard, not full of ghastly undead, we get to the sewer entrance. It kinda stinks, which at first we take to be why 'Captain' Salvador's Blink Dog refuses to go in. But Sal communicates with his familiar, and the Blink Dog tells him that 'it is unnatural in there'. 'Okay, stay here. Wait […]

Everyone Gets Their Rightful Reward

Tuesday, December 15th, 2015

As reward for helping in the battle, Lord Gallow extends a very generous offer to us. He offers us each a knighthood, which we graciously accept. Well, most of us. Salvador enquires about the option of receiving a military rank instead. 'Yes, that would be possible', says Lord Gallow, 'but it would be honorary'. An […]

Opportunistic Idiot

Tuesday, December 15th, 2015

The battle is over. King Steppenguard's forces have been pushed back, and the armies of this land have stopped fighting each other. Hopefully now we can concentrate on the real enemy—not the Judean People's Front, but the orcish army of Ragesia. The next morning, a messenger rides out to the centre of the battlefield. Lord […]

Salvador's Just Too Cheerful

Thursday, December 3rd, 2015

'If the dog wasn't in the way, I could cast Lightning Bolt.' 'He's only little. Fire it over his head.' 'I'm a gnome.' 'So fire between his legs!' 'I'm no expert, only being a mage and all, but I don't think Lightning Bolt works that way.' Thankfully, I have no such reservations about casting spells […]

Magic Missile, Magic Missile, Magic Missile!

Thursday, November 12th, 2015

Sent on an assassination mission the night before a battle, we get to the target's tent, that of a high-ranking wizard. With a bit of skill mixed with a healthy dose of luck, we take out the guards and encounter the wizard in rather favourable conditions. That is, until he casts Lesser Globe of Invulnerability, […]

Heal Thyself

Thursday, November 12th, 2015

'Um, before we get started on our excursion to kill this wizard, did it perhaps occur to anyone to get some healing? Just so that we don't start the next fight in a bad state.' 'For goodness sake. You've had all evening to mention this! Then again', says Thrak, after glancing at his character sheet, […]

I'm Telling Y'all it's Sabotage

Tuesday, November 3rd, 2015

We're trying to work out how to sabotage some siege engines. Our best bet seems to be for Thrak and Salvador to sneak up on them, throw oil on the engines, and then for me to cast Wall of Fire to set them all alight. It's not a bad plan, apart from needing to be […]

Knowledge Without Understanding

Tuesday, October 27th, 2015

To avoid patrols on the main roads we have to go through a dark wood, within which are creatures known as pitchlings. Salvador knows something about them, and shares his knowledge with us. 'Also, we can hold unlit torches, and if a pitchling comes within 100', they will burst in to flames.' Salvador considers this […]

Don't Give Them Names

Thursday, September 17th, 2015

Entering a room where a barbarian awaits us, donning his armour near a two-handed longsword, with a two-headed dog on the other side of the room, fills us with some level of pessimistic dread. Enough dread that the topic of new characters arises. 'The problem with needing new characters will be how to introduce them […]

Neither Do We

Thursday, September 10th, 2015

Making our way along the snowy mountain pass isn't a simple matter. The footing for our horses is treacherous in places, requiring us to look out for hazards and guide the horses around them regularly. 'Salvador, as you've just arrived to the session, you can make the next survival check.' '...can I take 10?' 'Yes. […]
