Tales of the Arabian Nights solo: 25

As Kamal’s ship neared Su-Chou they were swept into a gigantic whirlpool. The current was too strong and they were unable to row away. The ship was dragged in and crushed, throwing everyone into the sea. Kamal prayed for deliverance and in time he was washed ashore along with his loyal retainers. But they were […]

Tales of the Arabian Nights solo: 24

I wanted to give Kamal’s new followers, the pygmies, something unique. Magical items are a way, but just picking from a list did not seem sufficient. My earlier thoughts about their weapons being local but described by standards in the book gave me an idea. Since they are (future Indonesian) tribes-people the idea of magical […]

Tales of the Arabian Nights solo: 21

When I started this story telling exercise I very specifically had in mind the Golden Voyage of Sinbad. When I was young this obviously made a strong impression and my D&D adventures have been strongly influenced by those claymation moments. One of the key moments in that movie was the scene where prince Koura animates […]

Tales of the Arabian Nights solo: 20

Kamal and party headed at last into the Pacific from Su-Chou. The junk was large and sea worthy but still not large enough to carry the horses as well. They had to sell them reluctantly before they faced the open seas. After a few days they sighted a hump floating on the waves. Kamal ordered […]

Tales of the Arabian Nights solo: 19

  I’m a good distance into this solo story about the wizard Kamal and his quest to gather the two sacred jewels that will make him the most powerful man in his city. For a change of pace I decided that the next encounter I’d trying playing out using Labyrinth Lord (D&D B/X). My final […]

Out From the Shadows: Background & Set Up

This will be one in a series of running posts about a new custom D&D 5e campaign I am pulling together for the gang. The players will find themselves trapped living in the lower ranks of a hate driven caste system, and they will be struggling to escape. The following is an excerpt from the players guide I am writing for this campaign that gives a true flavor for how abysmal the situation is that the players will find themselves in. Their oppressive upbringing will have hardened them in some aspects, but will create critical flaws for the players as a counterpoint. More to come on that in the next post.Without further ado, the background and first plot point set up to Out From the Shadows. Out From the Shadows You and your comrades find yourself treading the well worn paths criss crossing the ramshackle rooftops of The Corners. Sounds of people moving about your impoverished district can be heard faintly below. A child can be heard crying a few buildings over to the East. The sky has now been gen

Tales of the Arabian Nights solo: 18

They headed east across the top of Europe rather than cut back through Arabia. Kamal figured that his new companions would be too obviously recognised as ‘crusaders’ in his homeland. His plan instead was to cut across the top of the world into China and then take a ship down the coast to Pan Pan. […]

Tales of the Arabian Nights solo: 17

Kamal was disorientated by his experience and wandered for days amid the markets of Paris. Death was everywhere: the plague had returned. Corpses lay in the streets. He was at turns horrified and numbed. Eventually he found himself in a park of some sort. At one time it had been a thing of beauty tended […]
