[D&D 2e] Diadem of Destruction 6

It was an uneventful trip from Baldur’s Gate to Candlekeep, where we took accommodations at the Inn. I dispatched a note to my contact Siliven to let him know of my arrival and impending visit in the morning. We also talked to the Inn’s bard due to our desires to hire a person such as him to help spread our chronicled exploits. The kind gentleman agreed to send some of his peers to meet us in the garden in the…

[WFRP 1e] The Enemy Within 30

Bluker had hired us to transport some Cathayware to Marienburg…until someone tried to burn down our boat while it was in his slip, AND we found out that his merchandise was phony. Instead he has hired us to transport a crate overland to Middenheim. Before we left, a giant priest of Morr joined us. He stated he was hunting for the necromancer Ernst Heidelman. We had to tell the priest we had eradicated said necromancer from the Old World. The…

Martin has been uncharacteristically…not cautious since we got to Castle von Wittgenstein. That lead-lined box with the moon rock in it was awfully heavy to try to lift back out of the hole, so Martin picked up just the rock in his hands! Well, the guy morphed into all forms of freaky before putting the rock back. Now he’s stuck with a perpetual thumb halo around his scalp. I think from now on, Goblins are going to be afraid of…

We headed for the solarium. The first thing we noticed was birdsong coming from behind the dirty windows. Martin scouted the place out. He wasn’t very subtle about it, either. Strolled right in. Inside we found feathered human bird-men with songbird plumage. Martin found a cabinet and fed them birdseed. They weren’t interested in talking with us so we moved on. We passed by the gigantic pit in the center of the grounds. It was covered in tendrils of mist….

WFRP 4e Starter Set

Alright. I’m sorry to be this way, everyone…I know we should give things and chance, and I know most people only like to read positive reviews, and if you don’t have anything nice to say, don’t say anything at all. But I am a Warhammer fan. I bought the 4th edition book and got about halfway through it before losing interest and moving on. I bought the Starter Set even though the core book lost my interest. I’m really trying….

Author: Piers Anthony

I found Piers Anthony in grade school. I had already found D&D, so I recognized all kinds of fantasy creatures. One day on the bus, I turned around in my seat to see a classmate reading a book with a manticore on the cover. I asked if I could read it after she was done. Between then and the year 2000 I read almost everything Piers had ever written (I skipped Pornucopia). I had a collection that would have made…

RPGaMonth: The Gathering Storm

RPGaMonth: The Gathering Storm

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 August, 2019, I chose Warhammer Fantasy Roleplay 3rd edition campaign, The Gathering Storm. I would call it an adventure module, but the front of the cover says “A Campaign for Warhammer Fantasy Roleplay,” so I guess I won’t argue. At its core, The Gathering Storm is a “retrieve these…

[D&D 2e] Diadem of Destruction 5

Ryfon questioned the horse about what he saw the night we were in the crypt. The horse said it was attacked by big dogs with large claws. Lots of big dogs. Those we took to mean the werewolves that were known to be in the area. Though we had killed a few on our way to the crypt, it almost seems the area was swarming with them. The horse also saw something in the sky. Something big. We sent Marwin…

[WFRP 1e] The Enemy Within 27

The dead guards left us sleeved mail coats, helmets, and breastplates. However, when removed from the guards, we see the “people” underneath are putrescent, decaying creatures. Still citizens of the Empire, sure, but nobody you want giving you hand-me-downs. The bodies are dragged into the doctor’s back yard. The doctor? He’s nowhere to be found after the battle in his dining room. Also, two of Larry’s mercenaries are dead. I don’t think he’s exactly a mercenary leader anymore, unless the…

There were yet more plans for assaulting the castle. We figured we ought to reconnoiter the place one more time. However, as we headed to check it out, we heard guards coming our way. We quickly made a plan to lead them to the bandit camp. I was sent ahead to warn the bandits. Gottlieb’s job was to lead the guard to the camp. He messed up. I waited and waited until we heard a shot from the forest. I…
