The Bonds of Desperation

Leaving the ship and daylight far behind, the party continued further into the darkness of the ocean cavern. The party swam away from the ship with Aleera leading the way. As they swam further ahead they came to a low lit area. There were rickety floating rafts that allowed standing out of the water. The group spotted figures moving on those rafts in the distance and stopped to formulate a plan.

The Mad Druid in his Tower

Bodies were littered along the path towards the lighthouse. The party checked them for anything useful but only found worn clothing and items of no value. Kaladrax went to the two bodies of eel folk and cut into them to remove a gland. He explained that the gland was the main ingredient for the potion of water breathing that was made on the island. Aleera took one of their fearsome looking tridents.

Captain Shiela Coppertree and the Annabelle Lee

Our group woke up on day four of Hammer with the intention of finding work and lining our pockets with gold. They picked up a quest and, after a hearty breakfast, they headed out to the town of Deep Harbor. There, they planned on chartering passage on a boat to investigate some strange attacks happening off the coast.

A Touch of Music and a Job Well Done

After getting our delivery, the party set off for the guild hall and came across a clearing. In the center was a satyr. He was playing a beautiful melody with a gorgeous silver flute. Milo started to go into the clearing and after a few steps began to join in with the music. Aleera, seeing that her party was close to being trapped by few magic, began to sing a countercharm.

D&D Cooking Adventures

So we just got the new Hero’s Feast official Dungeons and Dragons cookbook and it DELIVERED! So far I’ve tried 2 of the listed recipes. They are things we know well like hot chocolate or meatballs but they have such a wonderful twist of spices and techniques. This makes the recipes more fresh and interestingContinue reading “D&D Cooking Adventures”

Did You Think It Would Be That Easy?

The party woke up on Day 2 of the month of Hammer in the year of the Warrior Princess, yup we have a calendar. Each week is 10 days long and each month is 30 days. There are still 12 months in the year though. It was around mid-winter according to the time but this area was sunny and warm like summer.

How I Customize Miniatures

There is something to be said for unique characters. If you have a few veterans at your table, a new monster with a unique stat block can really shake things up. I’m going to go over a few ways that I’ve managed to change the miniatures I buy and turn them into fun, new encounters for my husband (our DM) to run.

Running a Table: Expectation vs. Reality

Just like a table can be amazing it can also have its issues. We had a great table break up because we lost a player when his mother died. He moved away and we had to stop for a bit to look for more members before continuing. We also had some problem players that made it super uncomfortable and harder than it had to be to have sessions.

Blood Pacts and Secret Promises

Disclaimer: This includes spoilers for Curse of Strahd so don’t read if you don’t want to know. After being able to sleep for a bit inside Asterisck’s store, we made our way out into the bowels of Castle Ravenloft. As our party entered a large crypt we came across an opulent coffer. We believed itContinue reading “Blood Pacts and Secret Promises”

Arrival at Castle Ravenloft

We completed our looting of the Amber Temple. Aleera told the party she did not find Milo and succeeded in lying about it. Milo had the hard task of raising himself up and not dying. In spite of being left for dead he managed to stabilize and survive the Queens. He joined the party and since he didn’t know that Aleera left him to die, everything went on as if nothing had happened. Aleera accepted that he had survived and left it at that. If fate wanted Milo to live so be it.
