And so the companions found themselves back at the Raven Claw Pass, sitting around a small fire, resting after their encounter with the White dragon and their recent escape. Outside the small cave, the stars were bright and the skies clear. Protected from the chilly northern winds, the party discussed their future and made a quick count of their resources before setting up a watch for the night as Grom quickly fell asleep.

A new take on Critical Hits (and lasting injuries)

I wasn't really satisfied by the default package way of resolving critical hits so I decided to see if I could cook up something a bit more interesting for my current campaign. I'll give the house rule below a test run for a couple sessions, see how it goes...

Morning came upon Pflenzen and the companions all met in the main room of the Odin's Beard Inn to share a breakfast. Urist, chugging ale, seemed light-hearted today, as if the night had eased his mind. After a brief discussion, it was decided that they would meet with Knight Banneret Mandred, then head out on the trail again.

Ties of Destiny / Destiny Tokens

In one of my recent adventures as a player, there was a situation, quite dire, where our group was pressed for time and had to find a specific location in a cave. Caves being caves, we encountered some enemies and other challenges and each was draining on our resources (including time left).

WB1, When the Earth Growl, how it started

With five sessions done and posted on this blog, I thought I'd post a bit more information about how it started.

WB1, Session 5: Into the Wild

Session 5: "Into the Wild"
Sunday 7th, March 1001 AC

And so the party returned to the eastern trail, heading toward Hrodik's farm. The way was well known to them now and the journey was uneventful. Spring was showing more and more signs of it's arrival, the snow slowly thawing into mud with the temperatures slowly rising but dark clouds were amassing in the west. As they walked, the companions also noticed the lone wolf, sometimes trotting alongside them, sometimes disappearing into the distance.
