Why the name change on the blog?

@bholmes: The players had to call it a night, so we did a mini, after-hours session resolving the combat with Tredegar the Lawful Dwarf. In the next write up, the players will learn of his fate....

@Hedgehobbit: I moved the blog in order to allow Stef to contribute his fantastic session write ups free of censorship. Long story.

Basically, we can get a little, um, free with our language and humor in our sessions, so I wanted to allow that same energy to be in the write ups.

I don't plan on moving the site again.

Thanks for the interest. :)

@jonchappellnow2

I like the interlocking grids in the 1st photo. Mind sharing who makes them?

I can recommend the battle board / tiles. We've been using them for over a year and they've become not only integrated with our all of our fantasy campaigns, but other roleplaying games like Deadlands and All Flesh Must Be Eaten as well.

UPDATE. Not to be outdone, another of our players, Dave M., also did a session write up from the Point of View of his character, Vulcor, a Cleric of Chaos. Check it out here:

Bummed about the dwarf. Did he make a good showing?

*SPOILERS*

He did indeed! Tredigar the Dwarf took a chunk out of the Hound of Hirot at the end of session 3 all by his lonesome before getting smacked down.

But his sacrifice was not in vain. In session 4, Marlowe the elf (Stefan Poag's character) noticed from the Wolf Spear Inn's rooftop that Tredigar's hammer's claw end was still lodged in the hide of the wolf and bleeding black ooze, even as it attacked the church in retaliation for its lost sacrifice.

This gave the party the encouragement to take it on, and thanks to that lucky roll on the color spray spell they not only blinded it, but knocked it unconscious.

Finally, the look on the player's faces around the table when the demon wolf went into gaseous form and took flight was priceless! Great plot twist.

I hope you are enjoying Stef's session write ups. They must be interesting to read not only as a fellow Goodman Games comrade, but to see how your narrative inventions are being interpreted and played out. :)

GREAT adventure, Harley. Thank you so very much.

Question for the group:

I've created a bunch of hand drawn maps for the Tomb of Ulfhaenor that can be printed out on a black and white printer. Would anybody want a copy? If so, can someone recommend a place where I can post them for free? They are kind of DIY and hand drawn, but they will get the job done and save a lot of time for anyone who uses miniatures.

Jon

It was hilarious. My character (Benito) went down the pit after Lance (Mike's PC) got washed down it like a turd getting flushed... which, given how generally useless Lance was, is a pretty appropriate end for him. I was going to climb back up and figured, "I've got a rope and I'm a thief --- I'll have to roll really low to fail --- not gonna happen so I'll save those luck points for later," and then rolled a 2. Jon C. (our DM) figured out I had missed my roll by 1 point and I fell back into the pit and spoinked myself on the spear that I had just pulled Lance off of in order to loot his corpse with greater ease.

Kudos to Jon C. for running a fun session --- and a big thumbs up to Harley Stroh for an excellent adventure.

Session 6 write up is posted.

This was a particularly intense session.

Included is a picture of the master himself, Stephan. Enjoy!

Session 7 posted, for anyone following. Things get a little harry for the Crawler's Guild as Sylle Ru recruits hunters and thieves to steal the Spear of Ulfhaenor, ambushing them outside of the tomb. Several character deaths took place and, among the players, there were several great moments of betrayal and loyalty. Once again Stephan applies his unique wit and flair to great effect.

Enjoy!
