A nice narrative will details that could be lifted by any world builder or scene setting gamemaster. I also really enjoy game write ups, I don't support them enough on this site.



Didn't anybody mention that the Brigand would be better named Fury if his gang was the Fists of Fury? ;)

Podcasts would be a cool idea. Hmm. We should have podcasts!

On a side note Sessions 15+ are not yet available for public view. A few new sessions will be released every couple days or so, so as to spread out the subs and not flood the citadel with a wall of Session synopsis. Go to Comment

Recorded the sessions live; made it much easier to review what happened (and saved writing tons of adventure summary notes) Originally we'd planned on uploaded it as podcasts (similar to "The last of Us" podcasts, but after the campaign wrapped up a couple of the players had second thoughts about it, so they got archived on a removable hard drive instead.)

We recorded every session, so the synopsis were as easy to write up as re-listening to the .mp3 files and looking over the session notes. (I wanted to post them as pod casts but some of the players weren't cool with the idea, so I did these synopses instead. Go to Comment

Arkths or Ravagers: These are large landbound crablike creatures about the size of Grizzly Bears. They live partially in the astreal plane. Their food is magic. They can sense it at huge distances. Since spells and such are hard to eat (being in motion) and magical places are the equivalent of a sea of krill to them, they are looking for magic stashed in concrete places. Their primary food source is magic items, alchemical potions, and enchantments. They do a pretty good job of mangling/ eating the physical aspect of said items in the process of chowing down. These things will be the bane of dungeons everywhere, as they will slowly eat away much of the treasure (and the magical traps... so it can be advantagous to follow these things). Note: They will attack people with highly magical natures (i.e. high magic powers). They will probably kill the person in the process of sucking out the power.
