Welcome to your Adventure Log!
A blog for your campaign

Every campaign gets an Adventure Log, a blog for your adventures!

While the wiki is great for organizing your campaign world, it’s not the best way to chronicle your adventures. For that purpose, you need a blog!

The Adventure Log will allow you to chronologically order the happenings of your campaign. It serves as the record of what has passed. After each gaming session, come to the Adventure Log and write up what happened. In time, it will grow into a great story!

Best of all, each Adventure Log post is also a wiki page! You can link back and forth with your wiki, characters, and so forth as you wish.

One final tip: Before you jump in and try to write up the entire history for your campaign, take a deep breath. Rather than spending days writing and getting exhausted, I would suggest writing a quick “Story So Far” with only a summary. Then, get back to gaming! Grow your Adventure Log over time, rather than all at once.

Mystenia - interlude between #3/#4

This isn’t funny, she thought. Then she giggled.

Mystenia took another gulp from her mug and watched as her new friends basked in the adulation of the locals. Going in and wiping out a goblin warren in a single day has turned them into heroes of sorts, and there was a good celebration going. Normally Mystie loved a good party – or even a bad one – but for now she found herself sitting alone, brooding, while she drew pictures in spilled ale on the tabletop.

With a sigh she reached under her shirt and pulled out the necklace she wore. The lone charm was a pair of stylized dice in mid-roll. She wasn’t sure why she’d had that made at the time, but it had seemed like a good idea. A tribute to her luck. Sure, she had her bad streaks, but mostly things fell her way. The problem with that was when she was winning, others were losing, and some didn’t know how to handle that. Things got particularly dodgy one night when a rat-faced little git had pulled a blade on her and accused her of cheating. Caught flat-footed (and angry because at the time she hadn’t been cheating AT ALL) she’d blurted out the first thing that came into her head: “I’m not cheating, I’m just lucky. Most who follow Sinashakti are.”

After a few seconds the knife went away and the guy sat back down, apparently appeased. Mystie, however, had been more than confused. Where had that come from? She barely even knew that Sinashakti existed. A little research uncovered info on the minor deity, primarily associated with travel but in some aspects mentioned as a god of luck. Interesting. Intriguing. Frightening. Dressing up in robes and swinging censures was not Mystie’s style, and she did her best to put it out of mind. And she had, for the most part.

Until today. Until she opened up that secret door just in time to see the big goblin – well, as big as goblins get, anyway – dodge a swing from the guy who smells like a horse. Batulzi. He’d left himself wide open and the chief was going to bury his spear in his side. She hardly knew Batulzi but he seemed decent enough, and kind of funny, but she wasn’t going to be able to stop the blow with her shortspear. The point drove toward Batulzi and in her mind she voiced a useless protest – NO!

To her amazement the tip of the spear glowed with an odd purple light, just for a the barest of moments, and veered just a hair to the left, digging a groove along the big man’s hide armor but not puncturing his side or anything else. It didn’t look like anyone else had seen the glow. She wanted to believe she hadn’t but she knew, she KNEW, that she had. And that she had caused it. And that the best thing to do then would be to stick her spear through the goblin’s head. So she did. And now she sat here nursing her drink, trying to figure out what it all meant. Was it a calling? Could it be on her terms? Was this why she was always so lucky? And could the dice on her necklace actually be a holy symbol of sorts?

Now THAT was funny. She drained her mug and smacked the ass of the barboy as he scurried by, smiling at his howl of outrage. Good day to be Mystie. Then again, they usually were.

Session #8 - We're On a Road to Somewhere

Experience – pending, as we stopped mid-fight. Don’t count the gnolls out yet. There will be a goodly amount of ad hoc XP as your roleplaying was uniformly outstanding. Plus Batulzi finally gets to attack from horseback (possibly).

Loot:
2 scrolls of Inflict Moderate Wounds (CL3)
1 scroll of Fester (CL3)
2 scrolls of Sands of Time (CL5)
1 scroll of Excruciating Deformation (CL5)

Caravan notes – as you could see, having me run over a dozen attacks of seven different varieties AND 5 major NPCs is not going to work. I think for now I’m going to go with the suggestion that at the beginning of the combat you chose one NPC that’s going to be active for the fight (you can choose to either vote on it each time or have a different one of you pick each time). Having a different NPC to pick each round would cause too many problems – they would get involved and then have to be followed up on. So with attacks that happen around the caravan any enemy you see is after YOU, the PCs, and your selected NPC. There will be another “battle” between the other NPCs and unseen attackers, which will get resolved with a combination of caravan combat and influence by how well you do – for instance, if you kill the apparent leaders of the attack in the beginning of the second round the caravan will get a bonus as the attackers’ morale will waver. I will post this paragraphs and the strengths and weaknesses of the NPCs in the Wiki. For the rest of this fight Shalue and Sandru will be involved (although the latter is a mess). Mystie will fall back into the wagon to tend her not-minor wounds and will be joined by Amieko and Koya (so those three are part of the caravan for the rest of the fight).
