RPGaMonth: The Witch’s Song

I have to admit, at first I wrote this adventure off. I was looking for something set a bit more southern Empire, and this adventure takes place near Marienburg. I slipped it back into the box and promptly ignored it until a couple months later when I was looking for something to read. It wouldn’t have hurt my game to pick this up and read it earlier. I also thought the small village setting might not have enough challenges for…

Rogue Talk

Rogue Talk

I’m thinking about a rogue as my next D&D character. It seems something always happens to my rogues, and I never get to play through the entire storyline I want. So I’m going to keep trying. My ideal rogue is of the assassin type. I wanted to get some cool ideas from others, so I sourced a couple social networks. Any subclass/kit/multi or dual class/etc. counts. Here are some ideas: From NPC “Rashgalliber the Mage Most Marvellous” was his name….

[D&D 2e] Diadem of Destruction 18

Our guide says we’re about 3 days out from the Duergar stronghold. Soon we’ll have to stop focusing on surviving obstacles and start thinking seriously about the dwarves. For tonight’s precautions, Darian cast spells to increase our strength before he went to sleep. It seems a waste that we didn’t need them, but I’m happy regardless. Now that we’re only a couple days from the stronghold, and due to the fact that Braden keeps himself invisible as much as possible,…

[WFRP 1e] The Enemy Within 47

After another full day, we headed back toward The Templar’s Arms. A gathering around a puppet show caught our attention. The stage was dark, but we could clearly see a puppet Sparsom arguing with a puppet Goebbels. Many of the people watching wore red hats. They were trying to get the rest of the crowd agitated. I managed to get in good with the crowd with a simple statement that I didn’t like to pay taxes. The random guy I…

I was looking for a starter adventure to run before The Gathering Storm and this practically fell in my lap. It’s billed as an adventure, but there are a number of suggestions on how to turn it into a campaign. It has the same prerequisite as The Gathering Storm, so I won’t be using it as a starter adventure. Also, it’s far more socially driven than I’m currently comfortable GMing. The party’s sole goal is to be invited to a masquerade ball,…

The group headed to the palace to investigate more on Pavarotti’s murder. Larry and Nathander went to talk to Sparsom. They then went to tell the Graf the grave news. While there, they were able to verify that the Graf wasn’t one of the walking dead. The rest of us checked out Pavarotti’s apartments. The apartments didn’t have a lot of paperwork. This guy must have left the reading and writing to someone else. I hope he doesn’t have a…

[D&D 2e] Diadem of Destruction 17

Underground is pretty monotonous. You sleep whenever you’re tired or you’re out of spells, but there’s no daylight to tell you what time of day it really is. If it gets to be too much, I might have to use a spell just to know the day and time. We were ambushed by some Hook Horrors…as ambushed as you can be on a single tunnel underground. Luckily, they were loud and we were able to tell they were coming, even…

Othmar and Wilhelm were in Goebbels’ pantry. Larry and Nathander were at his front door. I tried to keep up with Gottlieb, but he wouldn’t tell me what he was doing. He just charged headlong from room to room. I must say, it was a rather boring, middle class house for one in Goebbels’ standing. The only thing of extravagance we found was an excessive amount of underwear. And there was a woman’s locket. We also found some texts with…

[D&D 2e] Diadem of Destruction 16

It took a little while to figure our Braden was hanging out around the cave entrance while we were exploring down at the pool. That wasn’t an issue once giants started throwing rocks at us. One of those rogue projectiles hit me. It’s not the worst injury I ever sustained, but I don’t look forward to it happening again! I ran to the cave. Everyone else followed at their own pace, mostly quickly. I tried to figure out how to…

Gottlieb was healed enough to take him to the Temple of Shallya for magical healing. He’s a lot better now. Then half of us headed to see Chancellor Sparsam. He offered us 500 GC to kill Frau Kenner…who may be, I don’t remember how, a vampire? On our way across Morrspark to the Temple of Morr, a trained bear, engraged at having a rock thrown at it, escaped and tore the arm off one of our street urchins. That cost…
