Re: The Ninth Hour Social Diversion Society

March 28th game recap, the illusionist's perspective: From a deep sleep, I am rustled awake by the high pitched squeaking of the pointy hatted gnome. He is going off about a dream he had where he had a vision and was gifted some sort of skin, a craggy hardened skin over his whole body. A look in the...

Re: The Towering Infurno - Umbrage Saga

A few thoughts on potential future activities... First reunite with wrinkles! Also, I would like to get to a jeweler to make some beard ornamentations. I would like to get to a weaponsmith to make beard barbs out of Grisnak's bear tooth necklace, assess his dwarven axe, tend to my damaged axe, and l...

Re: The Towering Infurno - Umbrage Saga

As we rest in the secret closed room, I take off my mail shirt and try to assess the damage caused by the Gnoll’s smashing blow into my midsection. It doesn’t appear that there are any broken ribs but the bruising will start shortly for sure. I look over and see the half-ling sorting through stone t...

Re: The Towering Infurno - Umbrage Saga

My eyes are fading in and out as a hold onto my abdomen, throbbing in pain, and the door slides closed in front of me, finally, a time to rest. Hours earlier... Walking down the dungeon I watch as the elf runs and jumps into a pile of goblins that were gathered at the end of a long straight hallway,...

Re: The Towering Infurno - Umbrage Saga

Last game I used luck points to help defend against an expectedly damaging attack. Is this a proper use? If so, what's the rule for future use?

Re: The Towering Infurno - Umbrage Saga

On second thought, spending the night inside of a dungeon where we know there are additional enemies may not be the best idea. After some debate over sleeping in the dungeon it was decided to make our way back out and get Keant and the dogs on their way back to town. Before we left, we went back thr...

Re: The Towering Infurno - Umbrage Saga

Starring into rubble, dust, the corpse of a kobold and the meat pile of a slashed apart wolf, we find ourselves once again with our weary travelers, daring adventurers, misfit companions, deep in the thick of the dungeon, and there’s no where else I’d rather be. Before even the dust has a chance to ...

Re: The Towering Infurno - Umbrage Saga

Our final morning in Malforten started with a loud comotion. After a quick visit to Keant the leatherworker, where I retrieved my commissioned leather beard rings, in the classical dwarven style, and a newly crafted mastiff collar and harness we all heard the rumblings and shouting of local town mil...

One day seems like one year with wrinkles at my side. I did my best to keep him defended throughout our journey as Mahoney had told me when I purchased him, he had not been trained for nor ever entered into battle before. That did not stop wrinkles from performing valiantly. He alerted the team to t...

Re: The Towering Infurno - Umbrage Saga

I had a great time last game. I think I would like more role-playing than battle like 60-40 or 70-30. But I understand that is hard to plan out. I think also the next logical step is to head on our way to Malforten taking the road East. I feel other than just an eventual confrontation of the subject...

Last night we completed defeating 4 salamander monsters that came out of lava pools and rivers within the island stronghold of the fire Giants. At the end of the night we were still in combat as far as I can tell and therefore did not hand out XP or any rewards. We were regrouping after the battle b...
