Metamorphosis

Thursday, May 14th, 2015

'From the other end of the room you see Gowan for the first time after he evaded you through the portal to this swamp, and he's changed since the last time you saw him.' 'Has he grown a moustache?' 'No, he's changed. He's out of his bone armour and in a smoking jacket and slippers.'

Tell Me Something I Don't Know

Thursday, May 14th, 2015

'Your lack of knowledge in arcana tells you that this rotting head of a black dragon has been lying here for a few weeks.' 'Our lack of knowledge tells us this? I should be ignorant in more subjects.'

Falling Without Style

Tuesday, September 30th, 2014

'Ulagor gives you a crash course on the controls of the glider.' 'Sounds great, but can he give us a different kind of course?' We manage to get the glider launched, which isn't too difficult, seeing as how we just pushed it off the side of a five-hundred foot high mountain. Keeping it flying is […]

It Comes Fully Equipped with a Papoose

Tuesday, September 30th, 2014

Only the head of the dragon is all that remains after some weird immortality pact went a bit awry. I wasn't really paying attention. I should have been, because something to do with the One Hundred was keeping the magical onyx mountain upright, and now that we've slaughtered them all it is becoming unstable. The […]

Unnaming the NPCs

Thursday, September 11th, 2014

'This is captain...' Oh dear, the GM doesn't know the name of an NPC off the top of his head and needs time to find the reference in the adventure. This can only feed in to our tendency to rename all NPCs to something we actually have a chance of remembering. '...Sausage?' 'Sausage?! Sausage?! If […]

Further Reducing the One Hundred

Thursday, July 3rd, 2014

The second watchtower is silenced. We move up the mountain to the next bend in the path, where the second fortress stands. Rather than the lackadaisical approach to security seen at the first fortress, there are actual guards guarding this one. Two of them, standing outside the entrance. We'll just have to mount a full-out […]

Like a Natural

Thursday, July 3rd, 2014

One fortress cleared, one watchtower sorted. We continue to the next corner in the path, where a second watchtower is constructed. Toogood and I sneak up, silent as you like, and get to the rope ladder underneath. Now to see if we can catch them by surprise. 'Make Move Silently checks.' 'Natural 20.' 'Natural 20.' […]

But Maybe We Could Put Him on a Lead

Tuesday, June 17th, 2014

We've cleared the first guard house along the path up the mountain to the dragon. A couple of dozen of supposed elite fighters of the One Hundred lie slaughtered on the stones, which we step over to examine a couple of rooms on the far side of the courtyard. One is padlocked. The padlocked door […]

But it is Working Overtime

Thursday, February 20th, 2014

Either asking questions about the red dragon of Goldrock or Gowan the Bone Harvester has garnered us some unwanted attention. Toogood and Farrel are trying to gather some information together in a market square when they are asked to 'make a spot check'. Toogood is still looking for persimmon to make a fruit smoothie, but […]

And We'd Get Eaten by an Angry Dragon

Thursday, February 20th, 2014

The town of Goldrock has a dragon as its protector. Or so the story goes. Three hundred years ago a red dragon promised the town protection, on the condition that it was otherwise given its privacy. The town agreed, because who wouldn't, and created a unit of elite guards to be stationed in three fortresses […]
