Dungeons & Dragons & Discord

As part of the RPG Writer Workshop, I had to playtest my adventure to see if it survived contact with the enemy players.I also didn't want to spend money and time learning a new system, when I have other things to be getting on with - writing and parenting and so forth. That ruled out … Continue reading Dungeons & Dragons & Discord

Loge escapes from the Astral Plane

It's unofficial as I didn't play it, but here's an overview of how I would have run the adventure to the close.As I said previously, I came up with this over the course of a couple of hours really, with a focus on trying to finish out the adventure only, and still left some loose … Continue reading Loge escapes from the Astral Plane

Loge is revived

There's a lot to cover with this one, as I've mentioned previously.I started writing this in October/November and kept updating my notes, but following the death of the DM at Christmas, I haven't had the heart to finish it. I stopped keeping up with the notes at that point too - a switch to a … Continue reading Loge is revived

Loge does not survive

Yep, that's the title I'm going with. So we're cornered in a room and there's various nasties outside. They're in the way of us leaving the temple on foot, though we could fall back to a higher level.So that's the plan. Attempt parley or run. Parley doesn't really work. So everyone starts to run, out … Continue reading Loge does not survive

Loge’s continuing battles with serpents

OK, At this stage we're several sessions behind on the reports. So, where were we? Slug things! Slug things covered in spiky blade arms, that don't like the light, and could make melee attacks from a distance by opening short-range portals. Luckily, we managed to subdue them with the help of a summoned pack of … Continue reading Loge’s continuing battles with serpents

Loge continues to battle snakes

When last we left our plucky adventurers, they had managed to convince the Tabaxi that they needed to seek out old allies in order to overthrow the Yuan-Ti. That meant we needed to travel into the heart of Aarakocra and Grung territory. After following our Tabaxi guide into Aarakocra territory, we had to climb up … Continue reading Loge continues to battle snakes

Loge fights some snakes

So, after I missed some sessions, Loge finds himself in the Jungles of the Outlands, helping some Tabaxi liberate prisoners and fight off some Yuan-Ti. Basically, hundreds of years ago some Yaun-Ti were oppressing the locals but were driven off. They've come back and made slaves out of the locals, and are also apparently sacrificing … Continue reading Loge fights some snakes

Loge still stuck in that bloody house!

I took a bit of a break from the blog there. Between moving to a new larger house and the birth of my son, I thought I'd take a time out. Here's what's going on with Loge for the last few sessions of the game. The party rests and comes back to the townhouse. Brambles … Continue reading Loge still stuck in that bloody house!

Come Hell or High Water – More filler

So I had another week of unexpected low turnout. How did I cope? Well, I picked up my phone, pulled up some content and randomly rolled some events. Afterwards, I realised the general structure of the session mirrored the last one somewhat, but I think we pulled it off. So, using this handy list of … Continue reading Come Hell or High Water – More filler

Loge gets trapped in a townhouse

OK, so last time we'd all escaped out of a window, and were fleeing the nasty hag coven. Should be simple right? Get to the fence, get over the fence, run. And it probably would have been, but those nasty hags were intent on causing trouble, and despite telling us to leave quite forcefully had … Continue reading Loge gets trapped in a townhouse

Come Hell or High Water – the Screaming Skull

So, the plan was to make some player buy-in by having them add in some details and faces for the next island, having been settled there for some time before we picked up the game again. I was thinking something a bit reminiscent of city creation in Dresden Files. Unfortunately, it looked like most of … Continue reading Come Hell or High Water – the Screaming Skull

Loge Investigates a Townhouse

Level up!OK, so now we're level four, and I can finally take a Warlock Pact. So, obviously as a Hexblade Warlock, I'm going to take the... Pact of the Tome?Bear with me here. Loge's Patron is a spirit of luck, knowledge, and maybe war. It's much more likely to give him access to more magic … Continue reading Loge Investigates a Townhouse

Come Hell or High Water – Bouyan VI

For the purposes of actually having a sizeable chunk to write about, I've condensed a couple of sessions of the game together into this post. So, the party were in the palace prison and had released a whole lot of people from the dungeons. Whilst some stayed to provide a safe fallback position, the rest … Continue reading Come Hell or High Water – Bouyan VI

Loge runs away

OK, so fighting Spined Devils and Bearded Devils was not fun.Then the Spiked Devils appeared to make the fight a bit harder! After a pretty serious back and forth, we managed to start falling back, eventually hiding behind a wall of fog thrown up by the Dwarven Cleric. With Mr Easy's help, we managed to … Continue reading Loge runs away

Con Tales – 7th Sea

Recently, I headed to my local gaming con (Warpcon, now in its 29th year). On Saturday afternoon, I played my first game of 7th Sea and had a lot of fun.I'm most familiar with is as 'the pirate version of Legend of the 5 Rings', and I've played a lot of L5R over various editions. … Continue reading Con Tales – 7th Sea

Loge fights some devils

This session began pretty much as the last one finished - we could do some side quests or assault a nasty looking figure that lives in the baddest part of the bad part of town. For some reason, we decided we'd just go after the bad guy! So, in order to go up against a … Continue reading Loge fights some devils

Come Hell or High Water – Bouyan V

OK, time for a prison break! The group crept through the streets shortly after daybreak, heading towards the docks. With the one human in the group wearing borrowed town guard armour and working as a scout, they managed to make their way through the back streets to the house of Baba, the midwife and cleric … Continue reading Come Hell or High Water – Bouyan V

Loge investigates the alchemist

OK, so after a bit of a recap - Lord Gwyned, the Eladrin, is willing to look after us, and has some work for us to do too.He's given us a base in the Lady's Ward for now, whilst we work out what we're doing with the Chainmasters and stuff. So we have a couple … Continue reading Loge investigates the alchemist

Planning ahead – Come Hell or High Water

So the point of an island-hopping adventure is to island-hop, but so far we've only seen two islands - Ys and Bouyan.When they left Ys, I gave my players a choice of direction, or two islands, and they picked Bouyan - but that was actually a mistake on m part, because I gave them a … Continue reading Planning ahead – Come Hell or High Water

Loge on autopilot

I had to miss the regular session, but I got sent a write-up and here's what I understand happened. I should probably preface this with the fact I have no idea what happened to Loge, whether he fell off the Staircase or anything. The party managed to make it to the Formians in Arcadia after … Continue reading Loge on autopilot
