Campaign Log: 1.15 – The Annoyance That Won’t Die

Campaign Log

Gemma's CaveLast Wednesday at Pawn & Pint we began the session at the new location (613 Walnut) and we saw other new happenings.

Pawn & Pint now has food and drinks (including adult beverages) and the party has a new member.

We pick up the action again at the abandoned keep. The Senzar were driven away and many citizens of Cothel were rescued from the basement of the keep, where the Senzar had set fires so that the prisoners would die if the party had not intervened.

Campaign Log: 1.14 – Unferth, The Honorable Enough

Campaign Log

Gemma's CaveWell, last Wednesday at Pawn & Pint was actually the last time we met at the original location. This week we will be at 613 Walnut!

Unfortunately, this summary will not be as detailed (again, due to the fact I am yet to possess a TARDIS).

Last week saw the party setting up a new lair at the ruins where they had discovered a concealed cellar that had been abandoned (aside from some watery beast that caused a bit of trouble). In the morning, the party had spread out to check different things. While they were doing that, the sounds of horses moving through the woods from the east could be heard.
