  • ALCON,

    Due to the advancement of the plot past the introductory side-quests and setup for the invasion of Royal, the lowest XP PC currently active has been advanced to the point of moving from Green to Regular XP Class.  This means all PCs have been advanced the exact amount it took to move Lady Valia to 3,001 XP, the minimum for Regular XP…[Read more]

  • “So, Erich, you seem to be… getting into this. Where should we go next? I just want to say that whatever happens, I’ll be right behind you every step of the way…”

    Geoffrey looks from Erich back to the food and back to Erich. He shrugs, thinking to himself “When in Rome…” and grabs some of the food, waiting for Erich to make a move.…[Read more]

  • Geoffrey, still working out how all this works, desperately tries to come up with something witty, or clever, or at least useful. Too flustered to recall anything fancy, he points the wand at the blue woman in an aggressive manner and shouts “Zap!” attempting to will some sort of offensive bolt of arcane force into being to injure or distract the woman.

  • Geoffrey clasps one hand to the wound, seeing blood and realizing that this is real enough to hurt- badly. A six-armed attacker? This might be better handled by one of his companions with melee weapons. As he contemplates pushing for the back of the group, a dim memory of something he saw on television once flashes suddenly into focus. It…[Read more]

  • Geoffrey hopes Marcus rolled the right door, the door he repeatedly suggested…

  • “What is an E Katarn?” Geoffrey asks, looking from one companion to another and trying to get a feel for everyone’s lucidity given the wild things that are occurring around them.

  • “Hey, there, officer, I’m Doctor Hynek of the Austin Ghostbusters, you might know me from my YouTube series, and I think we can be the judge of any supernatural activity on campus. I mean, it’s not like a demonic possession incident occurred here in August of ’66 or anything. What about the steam tunnel incidents of the 1980s or 1990s? You know…[Read more]

  • Geoffrey takes chalk to wall.

    “I stand in a room with a group of buffoons a choice of doors to make;
    Are we drunk? Are we stoned? Are we Twilight Zoned?
    It all makes my head start to ache.”

    Admiring his work, he takes a step back from the axe and says “Ho, there Conan. Watch that blade, I’ve no desire to meet an untimely end before we figure…[Read more]

    Captain Vanessa Saint Claire was unsurprised her supervision of Fort Sandoval was being subordinated to MechWarriors. It’s just the way things worked. She had already started a formal inventory of what she had left when…[Read more]

  • “Right is right… even if everyone is against it…”  Geoffrey reads aloud.  “Wrong is wrong, even if everyone’s for it…  That’s kind of deep.  I mean, just the other day in our history lecture we were talking about Hitler and Germany and Mussolini and Donald Trump…”

    Geoffrey examines the writing.  Chalk isn’t usually something people writ…[Read more]

    Needs to be multi-level somehow, so the containment unit is separate from the offices.

    Do we have living quarters on premises, or do we all have apartments, etc?

  • “…and while they’ll TELL you the statistics show no more ships go missing in the Bermuda Triangle than any other arbitrarily selected area of open sea, COME ON…  At the center of every legend there’s a kernel of truth, even if the truth is something completely different.  Take Bigfoot, for example, where the legend is he’s a huge, hairy m…[Read more]

  • “Whoa.  I’m going to have to be more careful.  But if we’re going to be some kind of fantasy adventuring group, I need a more fanciful name than what I was christened with.  What do you lads think of ‘Geoffrey Arcanus, Master of Sorcery!’…  I think it has a ring to it.  All I’d have to do then is… um… master sorcery…”

  • “Hey, this is pretty neat.  I mean, these robes are just what I was looking for to wear to the next ren faire.  Now, assuming for the moment that we all aren’t hallucinating, given what I hope all of us are seeing, I wonder what would happen if…  no, it’s too crazy.  But what the hell.”

    I wave my wand at an object on a shelf and mutter a hal…[Read more]

  • I have used Lordly Domains before for this purpose- in fact, I bought my first copy of it at DLair’s second location right after they moved out of the house and into an actual storefront.  I made a special trip to buy it with one of my Battletech players from the old CHD.

    The resources we have to draw from are Lordly Domains, The Book of the…[Read more]
