A Night To Remember…

Listen to a very good fantasy rendition of the Firefly song Hero of Canton by Cortez. If you want to know ‘why’ then read on further in the blog.

When we last left our party, they were split up. Erika is down in the crypts beneath the Guild of Alchemy and Magic, about to enter the guild vault. Jurgen is at the Blazing Hearth with Ser Gado, sharing a couple of drinks together. Big Piet and Gerhardt are at the Drowned Rat, a rundown tavern/inn in the Southgate quarter of the city, one of the least patrolled areas of the city. Michel Bastide has left the Guild after talking with Arendight, and made his way to the Temple of Shallya; the wound he received earlier from a crossbow bolt has gotten infected.

It’s just past 9pm, and so we start with Gerhardt and Big Piet...

The Chamber of Secrets…

Hooded figures emerge from the shadows. They have been summoned… The following conversation took place shortly after the events that unfolded in Altdorf that led to the demise of the old party.

Voice 2: “Why have you summoned us out of schedule?”

Voice 1: “The Red Crown is no more.”

Voice 3: “How’s that possible?”

Voice 1: “Our absconding Magister Impedimentae, Lieberung, has sought to undermine our operation there.”

Voice 4: “So the rumors are true?”

Voice 1: “Yes. Wittgenstein is no more. The hunters have taken a torch to it. Just as well. Any evidence pointing to us will have been destroyed.”

Voice 2: “And Alric?”

Voice 1: “He escaped unharmed. We have an agent waiting for him. Contact will be made, and he will be brought to Middenheim.”

Voice 3: “He needs to be thoroughly questioned...

The Showboat Bout

Ser Gado’s trial is over; he has been found innocent! He is escorted out of the State Court by two Knights of the Everlasting Light and has no qualms about leaving. The crowd outside sigh and leave disappointed, dropping their tomatoes, rotten apples, cabbages and perhaps a stone or two when given the news that he has been found not guilty.

Outside he is greeted by Michel Bastide and Jurgen Noffein. Piet is still hiding out somewhere. Gerhard is in his room, and Erika, Piets niece (now played by Harbl) is making her way to the see them.

Gado recalls that Dieter, the Graf’s Champion, had extended out an invitation for a few drinks at the Showboat in the Great Park. Ser Gado, believing that’s not a bad idea, makes his way over there with Jurgen...

Never Trust An Elf… (Drop-Drop-Drop-Drop-Drop)

GM Note* Been a busy week for me, so this blog is rather late since we had a game on the 16th. There’s also another game tomorrow. Also, sadly one of our players has had to drop out due to real life obligations; Idrael who plays Eladril. He will be missed. This will be bringing the player count to 6 current players.

A LOT has happened since the 16th game… A lot. Two separate one-off trial sessions were held for two certain characters who got on the wrong side of the law! So lets get this rolling…

When we last left the party, they were outside the Blazing Hearth, making their way into the inner-city to enjoy the spoils and delights provided by festival week; Middenland’s greatest carnival which happens every 2 years.

As the party made their way further into the city, a certain priest is o...
