D&D Chronicles: In which we leave Tippa in a tight spot

ZILLAH We never should have answered the summons from Tippa. She blinded us with gold and an express carriage ride, and I was actually happy to be returning to our house in Kelsen -- even though I never wanted to purchase it in the first place. I was also keen to see whether Tippa had … Continue reading D&D Chronicles: In which we leave Tippa in a tight spot

D&D Chronicles: Ghostly encounters

Picking up where we left off, Squirrel has just collapsed after attempting to dispel the ward applied to a border of trees around a strange villa in the middle of the desolated Dust Plains... ZILLAH The ghost in the villa (18 April) Squirrel takes a huge breath and attempts to dispel the ward again. It's … Continue reading D&D Chronicles: Ghostly encounters

D&D Chronicles: Of portals, dust and a strange villa

ZILLAH We're finally leaving Issimbaal. It's been over a week, but feels even longer. So much has happened. After much deliberation, we've decided to brave the dust plains and head south-west towards the Temple of Bahaal and hope it doesn't live up to its other name -- the Temple of Death. We're pretty sure that's … Continue reading D&D Chronicles: Of portals, dust and a strange villa

D&D Chronicles: Getting our butts kicked in and around Issimbaal

ZILLAH Dealing with Elliana (not) We argue long into the night about how to get the Left Eye of Varrien from Elliana. The clerics of Phanator refuse to help us, not wanting to start a conflict with the Church of Elloran. I think we all know Elliana and her protector are far too strong for … Continue reading D&D Chronicles: Getting our butts kicked in and around Issimbaal

D&D Chronicles: Three battles, third time not so lucky

ZILLAH Zombies inspire reckless action It’s around midnight when we finally find a band of zombies towards the outskirts of Issimbaal. There are six of them, five of us. This should be easy. Although I must remember we need to take some alive for the clerics to study. I’m much better at killing zombies than … Continue reading D&D Chronicles: Three battles, third time not so lucky

D&D Chronicles: Trying to survive the mage college of Issimbaal

ZILLAH early afternoon... Thank blessed Emrys we are holed up in this temple with these clerics of Phanator. They have resurrected Blizzard with very little fuss. It has cost us, though — and me especially. It is no secret among our group that there is little love lost between Blizzard and me, but I will … Continue reading D&D Chronicles: Trying to survive the mage college of Issimbaal

D&D Chronicles: Guardian of the library

ZILLAH It's dark. That's the first thing I notice. And silent. The air is musty and damp. I seem to be sitting in a chair beside some sort of table, with Fleet's warm body curled over my feet. She stirs, draws up to rub her face on my hand, which is resting on my knee. … Continue reading D&D Chronicles: Guardian of the library

D&D Chronicles: The Ziggurat

ZILLAH We’re not in good shape as we continue along this ancient road into the heart of the swamp. This morning’s battle took its toll — I don’t think Squirrel can have much magic left after throwing a couple of fireballs and Alix has expended a lot of healing energy. But we cannot linger here. … Continue reading D&D Chronicles: The Ziggurat

D&D Chronicles: Journey into the swamp

ZILLAH We've been in Kelsen for two whole weeks now, but we're leaving tomorrow. Finally. It's been a bit over a week since we supposedly took over the thieves guild. In reality, Tippa and her cronies are going to run the guild -- which is a good thing because I refuse to have anything to … Continue reading D&D Chronicles: Journey into the swamp

D&D Chronicles: In which we take over the Thieves Guild

We pick things up in the middle of a very eventful night... ZILLAH [19 Feb] The warehouse is still on fire, but hopefully the rain will put it out. Regardless, there’s nothing further we can do here. Hoping no-one follows us, we return to Soma’s house — to find her dead on the floor and … Continue reading D&D Chronicles: In which we take over the Thieves Guild
