Keep on the Borderlands: Nuthin' But Goblins

The last two characters painted up for the players, my son's fighter and my wife's magic user.After escaping with their lives from their first aborted attack on the hobgoblin halls, the party (a gaggle of PCs and NPCs being run by my wife and son) resupplied at the Keep and then headed back to the Caves of Chaos.My wife's halfling thief hireling investigating the ogre's cave.Deciding to pursue a more cautious infiltration, they scouted a lower cave they'd bypassed on an earlier excursion into the ravine. Within the natural cave mouth, thick with a sour stench, their halfling thief spied a slumbering(?) bear. Curious, they investigated and discovered it was simply a bear pelt thrown over a pile of leaves as a makeshift bed or nest. As the party gathered in the cave to search the area they alerted the denizen of an adjoining cavern, an enormous ogre who fell upon the intruders with club and fist.The ogre, surrounded and cut down by my son and the party's meatshields.Despite his great strength, the ogre was nurs

Once More Unto the Keep: Another expedition into the "Keep on the Borderlands"

When we rejoined our merry band, they had retreated from the Caves of Chaos to the Keep itself to rest and claim the bounty on "goblin heads" posted by the Keep's bailiff. While he scoffed at their initial report that hobgoblins were lurking in the caves, the hard proof of hobgoblin heads was enough to convince him that the militaristic humanoids had made a foothold in the caves.The bailiff suggested further scouting into the caverns, as the position of "Chief Scouts of the Keep" had recently been vacated, (the previous holder's of that office having encountered and been slain by DOOMKNIGHT, a terrifying undead thing that lurked in the woods to the north.)With blades sharpened, torches purchased and loins girded, the party set off once again into the wilds beyond the safety of the Keep's walls. Join them after the jump.Returning to the ravine, the mist that had obscured it on their first foray had lifted, revealing a number of cave entrances higher on the cliff walls farther into the defile. I gave the party

He resides on the third layer of the nine hells and remains in good standing with his fellow devils. Mammon represents greed, lust, and ambition. He is two-faced, vindictive, … Continue reading MAMMON →

Session 2, Rift of the Frost Giants

So, I’ve been a little remiss in posting lately. We did a follow up to our last D&D v. 5.0 session at Casa Scrumm two weeks or so back. This is the continuation of the session that Jared put on for Joe’s birthday, which was a delve into the next in the series “Against the Giants”, a famous series of D&D Modules from way back in the day, revised for version 5.0 of D&D. If you remember from the last post, we delved around on the top floor, some members wandered off, and nearly got eaten by wolves or a giant bug thing. Given how that worked out we stayed more or less together this time. This time, our doughty crew started clustered together and didn’t deviate from that. We started after having retreated to our cave camp that is somewhere in the approaches to the Rift. We retreated there to heal up and learn some spells so we got in some long rests. It was during this rest period that we created the fiction that had Rich McKee’s character join us. As

A Summer Vacation to the Keep on the Borderlands.

Some classic 25mm scale figures finally painted after spending 20 years, untouched, in the lead pile.Last summer I took a brief break from working on my sci-fi game to play through a short Battletech campaign with my son. This summer I figured he was ready to tackle some Dungeons and Dragons, but I wanted to start him the with the classic edition I grew up with.  I've been noodling around with some OSR variant rule sets and picking through the classic Keep on the Borderlands module in preparation. With the end of the school year in sight I was looking forward to rolling some dice and killing some orcs with the boy.My wife must have picked up on my plans, because a few weeks ago when I suggested we pick a movie for our family's traditional Friday "wine and pizza night" she suggested "Why don't we play D&D?" She didn't have to ask twice. (Thank you wine, ur the best)So with five minutes of prep and only half remembered rules my wife and son each rolled up a pair of characters and were dropped unce

Bethesda objavila plagijat Dungeons & Dragons avanture kao originalni proizvod

Nekada ni najbolja namera nije dovoljna da poništi jednu masnu brljotinu. Bethesda se našla u popriličnom nebranom grožđu. Izdavač Elder Scrolls video igara (između ostalog), optužen je za plagijarizam nakon što je objavljena RPG avantura koja je trebalo da bude promocija za Elsweyr, novo proširenje njihovog MMORPG-a The […]
