Another Session I Get to Play!

We begun our journey after a long rest, heading into the forest with the centaur. It wasn’t long before we came across a large open Glade, which looked ominous and foreboding with how dead all of the vegetation was. Thinking better of it, we attempted to discard it when our rogue thief notified us thatContinue reading “Another Session I Get to Play!”

Finally!

Dear Readers, you wouldn’t believe what happened yesterday. I finally got to play! As we were taking our characters from Waterdeep: Dragon Heist, I was permitted to build a fifth level character, which ended up being a lovely female high elf bladesinger. I love her so much. It was loads of fun. We started offContinue reading “Finally!”

Waterdeep: Dragon Heist – Chase to the Vault

This is a summary of the second to last session for Waterdeep: Dragon Heist on my Sunday Group. It’s been a wonderful game to follow up after Icewindale. Tensions were high as the party chased after the Little orphan that they had already met who ran off with the Stone of Golorr. Following the kidsContinue reading “Waterdeep: Dragon Heist – Chase to the Vault”

Organized Play

Dear Readers, as you may know, or at least could have guessed, I am an organizer for Adventurers League, Wizards of the Coast organized Play for Dungeons and Dragons. Organized Play is very different than “normal” D&D play in a variety of ways. It’s actually, in addition to being called organized play, called “standardized” play.Continue reading “Organized Play”

Miniature Painting Update: Acererak + New Project

Dear Readers, I’m back! I’m sorry for the hiatus. I really needed to take a mental health break.

That said, hereContinue reading “Miniature Painting Update: Acererak + New Project”

Rime of the Frostmaiden: The Finale

Dear Readers, due to the…decisions of the party, the campaign ended rather…abruptly. And no, it wasn’t a TPK…Also, the ranger/rogue and the fighter/rogue were gone and we had two substitute players: a halfling and a goliath barbarian. The battle against the demilich continued, with two new allies joining the fight! Upon joining, the goliath barbarianContinue reading “Rime of the Frostmaiden: The Finale”

Current Projects

Dear Readers, I apologize if there has been a serious lack of substantive content in recent history, but I’ve been feeling really under the weather especially after my short vacation. No I don’t have anything serious, just a cold combined with allergies. That said I have some updates on some things I’ve been working on.Continue reading “Current Projects”

Rime of the Frostmaiden: Someone is Coming to Get Us…

Dear Readers, it has come to my attention that I apparently cut my notes off short last time, and missed them going to the Tower of Transmutation, as well as the beginning of a fight. I will begin this post by correcting that mistake… We pick up our tale with the party entering into theContinue reading “Rime of the Frostmaiden: Someone is Coming to Get Us…”

Rime of the Frostmaiden: The Return of Avarice

When last we left off, the heroes had left the library and were headed to the Tower of Conjuration. Seeing this tower, the party found it similarly lit up on the top as the others had been.

Time of the Frostmaiden: The Lost City of Ythryn

Rime of the Frostmaiden: The Codicil of the White

When last we left our heroes, they were in the dungeon level of Auril’s Abode…her home. The party had just finished the Test of Preservation, and stood before the entryway to the Test of Cruelty. The party opened the door and found themselves in front of empty tents…Searching through, they found the Bear Tribe, preparingContinue reading “Rime of the Frostmaiden: The Codicil of the White”

Rime of the Frostmaiden: Tests of Auril

When we last left our heroes, they were preparing to battle two frost giant skeletons wielding anchors on long chains. The heroes fought hard, and the frost giant skeletons fought just as hard. The party played it smart, though, and came out victorious. Heading further in, they found a female Frost giant, completely encased inContinue reading “Rime of the Frostmaiden: Tests of Auril”

Rime of the Frostmaiden: Assaulting Auril’s Abode

When last we met, the party had decided to head out to the island known as the Isle of Solstice, upon which sits the ancient fortress called Grimskalle. Their transportation? The whale Angajuk, who has a magical boat upon his back. The party travelled for three days, Angajuk playing the tour guide, showing old shipwrecksContinue reading “Rime of the Frostmaiden: Assaulting Auril’s Abode”

Rime of the Frostmaiden: Small Group, Large Deeds

Dear Readers, this week, only three of my players were able to make our Sunday Adventurers League game. As such, this session was much more role-play centered than combat centered. When we last left off, our heroes were in a lost spire of Netheril, broken off from the floating city of Ythryn when it crashedContinue reading “Rime of the Frostmaiden: Small Group, Large Deeds”

DM Story: How The Daily DM (accidentally) Traumatized a Table of Middle Schoolers

So, I was DMing a table of mostly middle schoolers (one of them is my son), and very early into the campaign, the party bard was tired of how long it took to get across the city and asked me how much it costs to hire a wagon. According to the PHB, it costs 1Continue reading “DM Story: How The Daily DM (accidentally) Traumatized a Table of Middle Schoolers”

Home Campaign Combat and Battle in the Throne Room (Rime of the Frostmaiden)

Rime of the Frostmaiden: “Have Fun Storming the Castle, Boys!”

In our League game, the two female players were unable to make it to our session this week, thus the title. So when we last left our heroes, they had thwarted the attack on Ten Towns by the chardalyn dragon that Xardorok Sunblight, the duergar king and clan leader in the mountains, had created. TheContinue reading “Rime of the Frostmaiden: “Have Fun Storming the Castle, Boys!””
