Some random guy at the left giving me tips about running this module.

Pay no attention to him. He is obviously inebriated and full of himself. Sheesh, it seems anyone can show up at a CON and pontificate if they have the money.

:)

[Edit . . just in case anyone sees this and doesn't understand that I am joking about Mr. Mike Carr. He is an excellent fellow and does not drink during CONs or at all for that matter. He really enjoys meeting people and gaming. As many know, in addition to FITS he runs LeMans at GaryCON and has done it for 30 years or more at GENCON (not sure if he still attends).

OK, for this game you can use your current chars or roll up new ones, if you're thinking that you'd like to try something different.

If yer wanting to try a new char, go with 2nd lvl . . max HPs and max gold.

Attributes, roll 4 d6d re-rolling any ones . . do it twice and then pick the better stats.

:)

Many years ago, rumor has it, two noted personages in the
area, Rogahn the Fearless (a fighter of renown) and Zelligar
the Unknown (a magic-user of mystery and power) pooled
their resources and expertise to construct a home and
stronghold for the two of them to use as a base of operations.
The location of this hidden complex was chosen with care,
since both men disliked visitors and intruders. Far from the
nearest settlement, away from traveled routes, and high
upon a craggy hill, the new construction took shape. Carved
out of the rock protrusion which crested the heavily forested
hill, this mystical hideaway was well hidden, and its rumored
existence was never common knowledge. Even less well
known was its name, the Caverns of Quasqueton.
Construction of the new complex, it is said, took over a decade,
even with the aid of magic and the work of hundreds of
slaves and laborers. Vast amounts of rock were removed
and tumbled off the rough cliffs into large piles now overgrown
with vegetation. A single tower was constructed
above ground for lookout purposes, even though there was
little to see other than a hilly, forested wilderness for miles
around.
Rogahn and Zelligar lived in their joint sanctuary for quite
some time, conducting their affairs from within except for occasional
adventures in the outside world where both men attempted
to add to their reputations as foremost practitioners
of their respective arts.
The deeds and adventures of these two characters were
never well known, since they both kept their distance from
civilization. Some say, and perhaps rightly so, that their
motives were based on greed and some kind of vague (or
chaotic) evil. No one knows for sure.
What is known more widely is the reputation of each. Despite
their questionable alignment, both Rogahn and Zelligar
capped their reputation of power when they joined forces to
stop a barbarian invasion threatening the great valley below.
In a crucial battle at a narrow pass in the hills, the two
combined powerful forces and decisively turned back the invasion.
Rogahn slew a horde of barbarians single-handedly
and Zelligar's powerful magic put their army to flight. A
grateful populace rewarded the pair and their henchmen
with considerable treasure, after which the two retired to their
hideaway. Most of the reward treasure was apparently used
to finance the further construction of Quasqueton, although
some of it may yet be hidden somewhere. In any case, the
hill stronghold was not completed in its entirety when, years
later, the intrepid pair apparently embarked on their last adventure.
Some years ago, Rogahn and Zelligar apparently decided
upon a joint foray into the lands of the hated barbarians. Taking
most of their henchmen and associates along in a great
armed band, the two personages disappeared into the forbidding
alien lands to the north, far from the hills and forests
surrounding Quasqueton.
Word just reaching civilization tells of some great battle in the
barbarian lands where Rogahn and Zelligar have met their
demise. This rumored clash must have occurred some years
ago, and there are few details—and no substantiation of the
story. The only thing certain is the Rogahn and Zelligar have
been gone far too long. If only one had the knowledge and
wherewithal to find their hideaway, there would be great
things to explore! And who knows what riches of wealth and
magic might be there for the taking???

Hey man.

No pressure.

You can do it as we get started if you want.

Mike Carr, the author. I'm a little hurt that I didn't make it into that photo. I was sitting next to Rhuvein playing Fight in the Skies/Dawn Patrol. I gets no respect, I tells ya.

What s 4 d6d ?
Is that 4d6 drop lowest?
Do you reroll 1s if you were going to drop them anyway because they were lowest?

Oops. Let's see - roll 4 d6 and re-roll any ones, then drop lowest die score.

This adventure can take place in Greyhawk or Aihrde. I'll leave it to the players to decide.

Thanks for your patience. I am always so SLOW when it comes to character generation. Hope you weren't dying of boredom while I dithered. I should have come prepared and used the time to tweak and chat. Even so, this looks like it will be a fun adventure. There is a totally different vibe to this group of adventurers. That fancy-pants thief better mind his manners! Blue Wulf isn't all that attached to bits of metal but she would be most disturbed to hear she was disrespected or double crossed. She tends to use fists before words to solve problems.

Thank you sharing the photo! It is a special treat to see the person behind the voice. Aergraith was only a little jealous when I went on and on about how handsome Rhuvein is. muhahaha :D

No worries at all about the chargen.

Hehe, that pic doesn't show that I grew a long pony tail as a "tribute" (not sure if that's the right word) to Gary and many of the TSR gang who still have them. I have a pic of it somewhere and will post it soon.

I looked on my photobucket and didn't have that pic uploaded but found this one:

Almost forgot . . Sunday is Easter ~ so if you have any plans to celebrate, enjoy the day.

I'm going to my in-laws for the afternoon I think, so I'm a little unsure about running the game depending on what is planned for my day.

I would be willing to host the game if you guys are going to be available, and so I will get more info and post soon.

But again, if y'all wish to enjoy Sunday your way ~ please feel free to do so.

:)
