Cinderella’s castle is no more.

Sunday, January 28th, 2007

After an overly-long hiatus, my gaming group reassembled this evening for a bit of play in our current adventure. (Note: players in the game will want to avoid the “cast” and “planned sessions” items, as they contain details that will spoil the future storyline.) This game’s concept took shape last winter, after returning from my […]

By way of announcement: I’ve installed a spam-fighter. So if you post a comment and it never shows up that could be why. You could let me know, I suppose. If that’s your sort of thing. My sort of thing is RPGs cuz, enh, dork, etc.. We’ve sort of started a new Vampire game, and […]

When you spend a few days where you wake up and think, “Hey, noone tried to kill me in my reverie. Yay.” and you feel a bit surprised about that, it tends to wear on the spirit. We are all a bit more reserved and pious these days, now that the major threat has passed […]

We are now on the road out of Mulhurand at a breakneck speed. Suffice to say, Guy’s life on the edge led him to make many unstalble deals, and our successful selling of his property aroused some old debtors. Debtors who also happened to be town guards. That we baited into a skirmish and, uh, […]

It has been many days since the opportunity to sit quietly with my books has been available. After the Kobold attack at the inn, we slumbered two to a room, and though I enjoy Lee’s company, I do not yet trust that all his endeavors are above-board. Well, not so much above-board as… directed by […]

It has been a number of days since there has been time to write—I understand this sort of thing is prone to happen when one is bound to as many masters as we are currently. In several capacities. There is some small matter of our first Mulhirandi employer, Mr. Mallard. He was slaughtered in his […]

I figured this town for a quiet little place to spend a vacation and perhaps make some money and some purchases, not for a town overrun with stinky little men. No one said ‘Hey, don’t go to Mulhorand, it’s entirely peopled with kobolds.’ But they should. Mallard had bought us healing from an actual Elf, […]

Certainly part of the money problem is now solved, at least for a little while. But damn if that Mallard fellow isn’t one crazy ingemdir. The job that he offered us was killing the demons in his basement. We all shared a glance over that one. Demons aren’t usually one for actually staying in the […]
