Website updated

I have updated the website dedicated to this game

I have updated the "People of Interest" section. I have updated some of the current entries and moved several to the past section.

I have added Brad's new character and updated the levels for the remaining characters. If I have made any mistakes, please let me know.

I have not had the opportunity/energy to update the "Story so far ..." section. If anyone wants to take a crack, I would be glad for the help.

Character artwork

Does everyone have artwork for their character on their sheets? If so, can you send me the image files?

Need to set date for November

We need to set a date for our session in November. What dates work for folks? I was thinking 11/20 to give me the most time to prepare but I am flexible.

If possible, I would like to start a bit earlier than we normally do. I was thinking 1:00 or 2:00 rather than 5:00. I would like to get in a full session in to get things rolling with the next part of the story. I feel like things dragged a bit in the last book. I think it took us 7 or 8 sessions to complete that portion of the adventure.

If we want to do a feast we need to plan that too. That also lends to my thought of starting earlier.

Please vote using the poll. I have only specifically listed the Saturday dates. If you have another date in mind please post to the comments of the post.


Below is a list of treasure from the Hook Mountain Ogre Lair. (This includes items from this session and the last one.)

Sihedron medallion (gargantuan)
4 potion of cure moderate wounds
4 +1 hide shirt (large)
4 +1 ogre hook (large)
8 +1 great club (large)
wand of enervation (10 charges)
ring of minor cold resistance
Sihedron medallion

4th—animate dead, fear
3rd—fly, ray of exhaustion, vampiric touch
2nd—blindness/deafness, command undead, false life, ghoul touch, spectral hand
1st—chill touch, mage armor, magic missile, ray of enfeeblement
0—touch of fatigue

masterwork half-plate armor (gargantuan) worth 4,950 GP
2 masterwork composite longbow (+7 Str) (large)
Masterwork earth breaker (large)
650 GP in black onyx
Chest with 6,000 GP in assorted coins.

Myriana, the nymph is overjoyed and casts reincarnate upon him. As she does, her undead spirit fades and the curse on Whitewillow withers. Lamatar is at first shamed by his failure to protect both Fort Rannick and his lover, but decides not to waste the new life she gave him. He becomes the new guardian of Whitewillow and does not return to civilization.

Troops arrive from Magnimar. Since the group has no interest in taking charge of the fort, they do. The troops bear a message from Lord-Mayor Grobaras. He has sent 1,000 GP for each character (total of 7,000). This includes the 600 GP originally agreed to and an extra 400 GP for “meritorious service to Magnimar”. He asks that the group winter at Fort Rannick to “oversee the re-garrisoning” of the fort. He looks forward to a visit and a full report early in the spring.

I assume that the characters stay at the fort for a few months and help to reestablish defenses and oversee planning for repairs on the dam at Skull’s Crossing. Brad’s new character is encountered as a visitor to the fort. He stays at the fort and befriends the group, deciding to join your ranks.

We will begin next session with your return to Magnimar. Besides meeting with the Lord-Mayor, you will have the opportunity to sell your loot and purchase new things as your budget allows. As long as you are not looking for something crazy, you should be able to find it in Magnimar. Your characters should be leveled to 10th for next session.

I believe that everyone but Dan is supposed to be in attendance.

See you there.

October date set for Friday, 10/22/10

The date that seems to work the best for everyone in October is Friday, 10/22/10.

This will likely be a shorter session as we will not get rolling until about 7:00. I was thinking we could play until 12:00 (I could go later but that really depends on the group.) I expect to finish the current section of the adventure. Your characters will be 10th at that point. Please have a leveled copy in case we surprise me and we are able to proceed further into the next session.

Brad will be joining us on a regular basis. He plans to play a fighter (archer). That brings our player count to 8 and our character count (including cohorts and animal companions) to 11. I am officially at the point of no more. (I do not care who Matt finds that is looking for a game.) :)

As always, my 5 player rule is in effect. I need 5 players to run the session but I do not expect that this will be an issue.
