[D&D 2e] Diadem of Destruction 3

The skeletons in the hexagonal room stood unmoving. We arranged ourselves into attack formation again, just in case. While we were moving, I accidentally tripped over the tripwire (unlucky disadvantage). Three bars fell down in the hallway behind us, blocking us from retreat. The skeletons attacked. I felt a little guilty that I didn’t attack the skeletons with my big, heavy maul last time. The fighter took them out pretty easily with her large sword, and it looked like I…

[D&D 2e] Diadem of Destruction 2

Dead bodies lay on the ground in front of the round stone. Smoke wafted from behind. Further from the stone, the ranger found a large claw print…far too large for any of us to feel comfortable exposed. The bodies…their leather armor was shredded by similar claws. The bodies were dressed the same a the Zhentarim we encountered in Baldur’s Gate. They had been working off the same information we had. There were a few holes dug around the south portion…

MOTU: Evil Lyn Idea

MOTU: Evil Lyn Idea

Skeletor is already a powerful magic user. What if Evil Lyn was a vampire, with magic abilities secondary?

 Here’s how you reign that power in a bit: 1) It doesn’t work on Skeletor…for whatever reason (he’s undead, no emotions, too powerful, etc.)

 2) Skeletor’s magic can break the charms she has on others. He is the most powerful evil magic in this scenario. Therefore his minions are safe (Beastman, MerMan, etc.)

 3) None of her thralls would be as powerful…

Wilfried [Fence] Gottlieb [Bounty Hunter] Larry [Bodyguard] Martin [Explorer] Wilhelm [Wizard level 1] Othmar [Charlatan] The druid from Unterbaum led the party up the Narn river for 3 days in a canoe. When they managed to get where they wanted to be, everyone was exhausted from rowing. The woods looked unhealthy and evil, though perhaps flora was starting to grow back in an area where someone evil had once happened. They were led to a small lake, surrounded by standing…

[D&D 2e] Diadem of Destruction

One time, one time!, my friends and I chose a different tavern, and a guy ends up dead. (Yes I have friends. Ryfon is an elf ranger, Braden is a mage in training…with some great sneaky skills, and Delenn is a Knight!) A rushed, nondescript gentleman entered the bar we were in, handed Ryfon a hefty bag (worried people were after him), and was cut down by Zhentarim. We escaped before the Flaming Fist started asking too many questions. This…

Wilfried [Fence] Gottlieb [Bounty Hunter] Larry [Bodyguard] Martin [Explorer] Wilhelm [Wizard level 1] A dozen goblins poured out of the tower. These were followed by another dozen from the caves nearby…and their dozen wolves. The party listened to enough of the goblin pep-talk to figure out that one goblin, wearing a red dress and a tiara, was the leader. It went by the name “Guttbag”. They let the goblin warband go right on by toward the farms and town. The…

Wilfried – Human Fence Larry – Human Bodyguard Martin – Human Scout Othmar – Human Charlatan Wilhelm – Human Wizard The party arrived in Kemperbad, and odd town 500 feet up a cliff above the river. Apparently there are no Imperial taxes in the town, which can only be a bonus. The town is accessed via a number of lifts, each depositing the traveler partway up the cliff where they wait for another lift, and so on. Our turn was…

Wilfried [Fence] Larry [Bodyguard] Martin [Scout] Othmar [Charlatan] Wilhelm [Wizard] Gottlieb [Bounty Hunter] At the dwarf tower, Wilfried volunteered to keep watch within the tower proper. That was how he found himself being attacked from behind, knocked unconscious, and missing the entire fight the party had with a ghoul. (Thanks to a Fate Point.) Wilfried awoke to find himself in a rotten ghoul lair, lying on a floor inscribed with a glowing hexagram. Martin was on the floor beside him,…

RPGaMonth: B/X Companion

RPGaMonth: B/X Companion

I inadvertently started #RPGaMonth because I had a stack of gaming-related books that I had purchased but never read. With #RPGaMonth, I grab one of those books and start reading. For March, 2019, I chose B/X Companion by Jonathan Becker (JB). I have been following JB’s blog for years, and I had heard this product mentioned enough times that it piqued my interest. Part 1: Introduction. Explaining (a couple times) how this book is to be used and the inspiration…

Wilfried – Human Fence Martin – Human Scout Gottlieb – Human Bounty Hunter Larry – Human Bodyguard Wilhelm – Human Wizard Apprentice Previous Sitting The merchant vessel, Bawdy Countess, made port in Delberz. The party soon found itself as the estate of Francesca Lang, Wilhelm’s patron in the magical arts. Lang’s condition on taking Wilhelm on was that he look into the evildoings of the Daemonologist Italka…something or other. Magician Lang’s current apprentice, Hans Peter Shiller, looked on in jealousy…
