So my Sunday group has finished Rime of the Frostmaiden, and I looked up something for them to play, and settled on running Dragon Heist.
Due to the rather…prestigiously large number of times I’ve run this, as well as the fact that they are still in chapter 1, I won’t be recounting their adventures as I usually do, but will summarize:
The party decided not to get involved with the bar fight between the Xanathar Guild members and the Zhentarim female half-orc, other than to intimidate the other Xanathar thugs to keep them from jumping in.
After the fight, the inevitable troll appeared with the stirges. The party fought hard, and lost one member who failed their death saves. The party barely made it through.
They took the quest from Volo, and ended up at the Old Xoblob Shop. They took the info they got there and bypassed the Skewered Dragon and headed straight for Candle Lane where the warehouse is.
They took on the kenku there, found Raenar and headed to the sewers.
The party found the secret door to the Xanathar Guild hideout, faced the captors, including the illithid (who got away), and saved Floon. We ended with them heading back to the Yawning Portal.
The End (of session one!).
So now on to other news:
I’ve recently picked up a Wednesday group, as I believe I’ve mentioned, helping out for a bunch of young girls who are wanting to learn how to play Dungeons & Dragons. Thus the new projects of the aasimar paladin and elven rogue. Adding to that, yesterday I picked up a commission for a Goliath barbarian. Unfortunately, the miniatures that he bought were females! I made a deal with him that I will go find a male version and just keep the females, buying the male versions myself.
As soon as I buy it, I will get pictures. It’s going to be interesting and painting the Goliath tattoos.
Tomorrow, of course, is my Tuesday game, the Inglourious Ingrates. I am actively in the process of looking at the story arcs for my players, as they are heading towards the capitol, where they are all from. I believe that the player character story arc of Avery is going to begin, and that Dacyria will be touching on hers possibly. We’ll see.
The problem I have is that I actually haven’t done any writing past the first adventure. My health issues were getting in the way of that, but that’s okay because I have plenty of time to write today and that’s what I’m working on.
I’m just trying to figure out a way to work the former milkmaid with daddy issues into the story. I’ve already got how I’m going to work in Dacyria, but she comes in a little later.
Needless to say, I have a lot of writing and planning to do. Not sure how it’s going to turn out, but I will do what I always do when I need to and make it up as I go along. If you are a member of my Tuesday group and are reading this, yes, it happens. But you’ll never know when.
Looking at hastily written note…”Sexy Goblin”…
Yes, everything is planned out to the T… he lies right through his teeth…
In any case, it’s going to be an interesting ride.
Also of note, brandon, our contributor for Wednesday’s a Player’s Perspective, is out on vacation, so there will be a different post on Wednesday than usual. Don’t worry, it’s going to be good.
Until next time, Dear Readers…
