Defeated by Smugness

Thursday, July 17th, 2008

At last we encounter the Blood Angel, our current nemesis, bent on destroying the whole world. The cultists that summoned it all lie dead, circled around the Blood Angel, and a demon companion taunts us whilst throwing mystical balls of fiery energy towards us. Two of us engage the demon dogs, one keeps the demon […]

Lightning Strikes!

Thursday, July 10th, 2008

It takes a few hours of travel through overgrown terrain to get to the ancient temple of blood red clouds swirling ominously overhead, but thanks to Dexter's excellent survival abilities we don't get bogged down along the way. As we approach the courtyard we are impressed by the intricate design that went in to the […]

Sunder and Lightning

Thursday, July 3rd, 2008

Heading towards the town that is our only remaining clue turns out to be a good omen. Well, perhaps not for the town itself, as it is almost completely on fire, but this seems like a good indication we're on the right track. With a couple of buildings not quite on fire yet we hustle […]

His Name is Dexter, For he is Many

Thursday, June 5th, 2008

The noise outside the barn that wakes us up in the morning after our day's rest was Amelia, commander of the guard in Borat. Amelia breaks the stillness of the morning by calling out, 'Dexter! I know you're in there!' 'And I know you're out there', shouts back Dexter, behind the pulled slightly ajar barn […]

Rest or Continue?

Thursday, May 29th, 2008

Not keen on being tortured any more we burst in to action like a well-oiled machine! Despite a dozen guards and all being behind locked cell doors, we break out and defeat our captors. Of course, our captors are the town guards with whom we were working not five hours previously, but they are now […]

I Don't Think You're Doing it Right

Thursday, May 15th, 2008

Having saved the town from the murderous threat of the marrowbreakers we are summoned to appear before the king. An honour indeed! It's a little peculiar that fifteen guards come to Dexter's home in the middle of the night to summon us on personal orders from the king, but one does not question the king. […]

This Ain't No Democracy

Wednesday, May 7th, 2008

In an fine example of group-self-sacrifice as much as obvious masochism we wake up the final two Marrowbreakers we've uncovered, so that anyone stumbling in to the temple in the future won't wake them up to terrorise the city. With the first reanimated from its statue form we retreat to a room that offers us […]

The Thing

Thursday, May 1st, 2008

Attacking with a melee weapon in to a grapple is more a matter of luck than skill, as there is an equal chance of hitting each grappling combatant. When we were attacking the grapple-happy Marrowbreakers we had to check to see if we hadn't hit an ally by mistake. With Tal in a grapple the […]

Taking Stock

Thursday, April 24th, 2008

We entered town shortly after the murders started and were tasked to investigate and stop them. Our investigations found a pair of creatures were killing citizens, so we set out to kill or subdue the creatures. We set one loose and killed the other, but almost immediately afterwards we released a third in to the […]

Cultural Learnings

Wednesday, March 5th, 2008

Travelling with the general, we make it to the capital of Borat. Is nice. Apart from being a police state and recently suffering from a spate of nighttime murders, that is. After giving our evidence about the riot in Copperdell we are approached by the rulers of the state to help investigate the murders. As […]
