Session 4

The person is fully clothed hood up…it’s way to hot for hoods to be up. How strange. How strange. She seems to have no interest in talking to us and beelines for the town. the draeugar yells in druid and the person looks at them and keeps walking. We see a maptube on her back and a weird parcel on her him. We get close and we can see the woman’s face is covered in bandages.

We stop the woman walking. We try to figure out what is going on. She informs us that her name is tatter and she’s the apprentice of the mad mage. Whoa. She keeps walking and we follow her. When we get close to the camp shed just walks through but we are stopped. She did cast some arcane spell before getting there so that could have something to do with that but I cannot be sure.

The guards tell us that no townies are allowed here, but I think they forgot that I am not a townie, and I kind of want to see what her business is here. Fuck Clive. He won’t let me through. I’ll remember it. It’s almost like they forget I have the power to protect them.

After awhile Tatter comes back at sword point mumbling about dwarves I tell her Clive is worse over here. She tells us that she is weak over here because so we bring her back to the area we start to talking to her. I ask her about the realm and she says the talisman are only good for a year and they are rude. Weird. I ask her why she tells me it’s because they deny the gift the realm will give us. The gift of this fancy power they have over there.

We continue to talk to her, and I can feel her try to read my thoughts. I block it a few times. I can tell that she is getting a little testy with me after these. Not like it’s my fault..I mean it kind of is but still!. We talk about the witch being weak and he husband dying. I bring up the mushrooms and she hasn’t heard of this effect before so I offer to share my notes.  She is happy to accept and then keeps asking me about the talisman. I keep the information to myself. Why does she need to know?

Suddenly Tatter looks up and a large gem in beard dwarf appears and starts to speak.

“Hello all, I am your final contact before army of Khazak-Hadar Empire come for you. You are last humans left and we, like you, are tired of fighting. But your defenders do not seem to be. They are stubbron and refuse to come for yoour safety.

There are only two options left to you. Live in safety as prosperous workers in the Khazak empire or die, either here or to the monsters in the wildlands.

I urge you to convince suicidal soldiers to accept a peaceful transition of power. They work for you. Make your wishes for safety known For every night until bulk of Khazak forces arrive, we will show you how you die if peaceful resolution not reached”

And just like that, the image disappears and sparkles flutter down across the town.

That was strange. It’s time to gather supplies for the trip. I try to find medical supplies but there aren’t many in the town since the fucking military took them all. I was able to secure a bottle of Vodka, sewing kit and a bolt of cotton. However, before i can make it back to camp, loud thunder sounds and sparkles trickle down. Everyone is distracted. I make it to the medical camp and tell them I need supplies. It’s pointless to hoard all of the supplies when there’s no hope. I manage to get 4 bottles of antiseptic. I tell them there’s no real hope and if they truly want to be saved they should come with us. They hesitate. I tell them if they decide, they know what to bring me. They mention my new pet looks familiar. I just shake my head. Of course they know him. It’s Gerald, but I don’t care to explain what happened. They are a large waste of time at this point.

The next morning, that guard and another are at the wagon. I make them their talisman in exchange for several bandages. The other useless guard gave me nothing. I will remember this… Before long a large fight breaks out. I’m done making talisman to organize the wagon. I send Gerald out to deal with it. He yells loudly and pushes the people away…they disperse but the group starts to grow weary of my pet. The dirt dwarf confronts me in the wagon. I confirm it’s Gerald and explain how he wanted to be with me forever…with the neurotoxin and the fact he’s a human would prevent that we entered into an agreement of burning passion. Still skeptical he moves on. No one will take my love away.

I was informed the previous night that the talisman prevent the gifts only the strongest and hold. Being strong myself and told I would be fine, I agree to get rid of it, but only if it can be dispelled. This is a family heirloom after all. I was also told the family would only get help if they needed it if they didn’t have them either. I shrug. It is easy to convince them to go with it as well. It’s not much longer until we meet up with Tatter and walk through. It’s just like it was last time. I shrug off the feeling. But the Ackles, they panic. I try to calm them down. Tell them it will all be alright. They kind of nod.

I start to grow used to everything happening here. Everything seems less strange. The cries of loved one that used to be birds to the weird shadows in the corner of my vision. It seemed…normal now.

Tatter starts to walk with us for awhile and then points ahead of us. “Hewerhall is that way. I think you (the Ackles) will like it. The others, not so much. I think you will find it boring” she tells us. I have to agree. I’m here for power. I’m here to become strong…but I have to care about Gelfi. I know she’s fond of these humans and I don’t want to upset her more than I have to with bad news ect. I point the wagon into the right direction and we go off. The Ackles are still a little shaken, and it’s obvious. I try to comfort them the best I can but it seels futile. But don’t worry! The draeugar has a plan though! Don’t worry!

He creates a Mud snowman about 2 feet fall two peach pits fr eyes and a big open toothless mouth. He climbs up the wagon slowly, sloshing around as he spider man climbs and terrifies the children. The lil boy is just screaming bloody murder, the daughter is like ok… the parents are so confused. He then gets up to the top and dances and then they are like “oh ok yay! ” and enjoy the lilttle dance. They touch him and they realize this is mud and they get super excited and they are playing in mud. the lil dude is all for it and plays with the kids for 3 hours. The kind of dwarf tells them he has to go to sleep and then he turns into a puddle mud under the wagon.

It soon reaches night and we set up the camp. They sky is a lot different here than the other place. The sky had a aurora piercing though it, but not illuminating anything. It was almost relaxing but strange…The humans were a little scared. They didn’t want to camp outside, and wanted to sleep in the wagon. I inform them only two people can be in there at once, They ask if the kids can stay. Ugh! I allow the children to sleep in the wagon as long as they don’t touch anything, the parents under it as they wanted. Gelfi and Gerald make a fire. He removes his gauntlet to light the tinder.  I lean against the wheel while Gerald stands next to me, forever vigilant. I start my medication and I feel a lucid dream coming on. One that I don’t control. I shrug it and allow it to happen. I see my first patient. The first one that died. The first one that got me interested in how the living work.

The spirit tells me what would have happened if I didn’t do this. Gerald and Gelfi were making out as the rest of the group were laughing and having a good time. Weird. Suddenly the group points and laughs and I look over. Gerald and Gelfi stopped making out and start to play with organs. Not just any organs…they’re mine. I reach out to try to get them to stop but I wake from me meditation. I feel my stomach and shrug it off. Strange dream. I snuggle close to my armored pet and tell him if he ever leaves me I will end him. He nods and pressed his helmet covered face against my forehead in a cold, metallic kiss.

Session 0-3

Greeting fellow nerds! It has been awhile since I have posted a D&D story for you all! Due to the large amount of time from the game I ran, we decided to start a new campaign. This is going to be a little bit of a long post as we’re about 3 sessions in so far, but I promise you it is an amazing read.

Behold, the story of a rag tag group of adventurers and the Realm of the Mad Mage.

I, my readers, am an Elven doctor. My gnome partner and I were forced from our city by a dwarven attack. No one knows why they are suddenly turning on the other races at this moment but it was not fun to be displaced. The gnome and I managed to make it to Swelterguard. It is a small town that borderd the Domain of the Mad Mage. A little fact I know about this place is, power mages create these realms for them. But something made this one go insane. Poor fool.

Here in Swelterguard, I meet up with the rest of my party. Most having a similar story. Displacement by dwarves. There is another gnome who fancies magical spells. There is also a Dreugar who hates these dwarves with a passion and is really into dirt or something. Last, but not least, a human. I don’t know a lot about him at this point but that’s ok I guess.

I forgot to mention, the other gnome? Has a weird thing for my assistant. It’s weird but kind of amusing. But we can’t be distracted by love at this point. Gelfi, my gnome assistant and nurse, and I set up a make shift doctors tent to treat the injured. I’d rather see them stay ill but I rather enjoy money.

The last customer I had was strange. She came to me and held out a leaf filled with mud. She told me her husband bought it from the witch for fertility. I scoffed. “That is just mud” I told her she told me “I KNEW IT” before storming off. Poor man…

As the day ends, the magician comes back to us and tells us of a witch on the end of town that sells talisman, spells and protection. Weird…but they all want to go so we’re off to the edge of town to see this witch. It was clear that this town doesn’t like her. But how bad can she really be? *sigh*

As soon as we get there, there is man standing outside, he looks defeated. It wasn’t too much longer before we heard yelling and screaming inside the witches house. I went to see what was going on. I found a patient I had told hr husband bought mud. Oh boy…I tried to explain magic to this human and it could have been magic, but from a medical standpoint it’s mud. She scoffs and walks off. I am alone with this insane witch of a woman now.

The group enters the cabin as the couple leave and she starts to try to sell us her wares. The weird talisman, she said, would protect us from the realm so we can travel safely across into the lands. Being that she sold mud to a man, I turned down her offer. The duergar wasted their money on one. I felt confident that I could handle the realm. How bad can this be? We stand at the border now. I cross over…

I can feel it…it feels strange….unnerving…..As I cross the border it feels like a gust of wind blowing down on me before I am into the Realm of the Mad mage. It’s strange to me,…the sky is blue and pink and the clouds are moving very fast. The grass blows in the breeze shifting through the colors of the rainbow… The dirt dwarf? Saw nothing. It was normal to him.

We go to enter the cave, but the not Gelfi gnome doesn’t want to enter. I shrug it off. I really don’t care as I go inside. He tells us he’s going to find the crawfish and talk to them. Alrighty then…. He successfully finds the crawfish he was looking for and casts talk to animal on them. They tell him to go away and not to eat him. He informs them he doesn’t want to eat them and that he wants to talk to them about the mud here. They are just little babies and go fetch the eldest crawfish. The old man Crawdad explains he is the oldest and he has millions of children here and that the gnome can take the mud id he wants. Being around 30 minutes old, he has seen the everything there is to see and his millions of children will carry on his legacy. The gnome thanks him for his time, collects some mud and goes back to the cave we are in.

Fast forward a bit of time, we accidentally slaughtered (By slaughter I mean the human sliced the fucking thing in half) a pseudodragon and the human rushed his body to the military cleric who revived him. I later learned there are mushrooms that create neurotoxins and he was affected by them because he ate the mushroom…he acted like the witch who ALSO eats them. I tell the party they are poison and will fuck them up.

When we return to the town, the Dreugar tells us he is going to visit the mage which is fine. The DM shifts the story to them. It is now a pretty fun time. The witch starts to make soup with the mushrooms he brought back and she offers him some of the stew. He eats said stew. OOC I just stare at them and say “Didn’t I just tell you it was poison?!” I laughed, they laughed, the party laughed and they successfully rolled to save against the poison. Sure pays to be a type of dwarf.

Nothing else really happens from here. So skipping a few days after I find out I can make stuff last forever, I tell the commander i can help to help ease debt ect ect. I’m also totally fine letting everyone but a select few die from the dwarves but that’s just me. It is from there I hear the dwarves want to have a meeting. Oh no!!! We wait for the day of the meeting. As we await to see what happens….a weird woman appears. She tells us she’s the apprentice of the Mad Mage.

Session 6

So this is a few weeks to late, oops. We didn’t have a session last week since a few of us weren’t feeling good. We’re all doing much better and hopefully we will have a session tomorrow. It’s going to be hard not to type spoilers but I’m gonna sure try 🙂

So in this session, the group goes with Yuri to her castle. They’re greeted by her right hand and they are given time to rest before departing to the Shrine of the Cosmos. The group travel with Yuri to the shrine and they are greeted by a sleeping dragon and an awe struck Yuri. To the groups surprise. Yuri begged one of the young watchers to turn into dragon so they can see how pretty they are.

OOC Chat:
Liet: What color are they?
Me: Black.
Liet: Oh…so Acid breath…hmmm they’re also Evil aligned.
Me: *forgetting that bit of D&D lore* Maybe. You wont be too sure
Liet: you’re right…there’s always that chance but hmmmm

So, as they begin to leave, the group asks why they can’t ride one of the dragons to the city they’re supposed to go. What a fantastic question. An excited goddess runs back into the shrine and convinces a dragon to fly them outside the city. The travel takes a fraction of what it would have been.

The group, now in the city, go with Yuri’s plan. She will go in through the gates while the group goes into the sewers. They soon emerge in a store room and meet a bewildered Yuri in a main hall. The whole area is covered in blood. The stench of blood was heavy in the air. Being blind, Yuri can’t exactly find out what is happen to the group explains everything.

With a bit of understanding the group begins to search for the source of all of the blood and they find it. A large room torn apart full of royals, nobles and peasant fighting to the death. Dead bodies litter the grounds. A large, overweight man sits on the throne, cheering on the bloodbath. It’s not long before they’re noticed. The man stops the fight an invites them to the party.

The group declines but he’s very persistent about joining him. Eventually he gets annoyed and every single person except him and the group fall to the ground, dead. The fat man takes a step closer and one last time invites them to join the party and he’ll forget everything. In response Liet throws the man across the room back to his throne.

And with that the session ended. I have a lot in store for these guys and I can’t wait to tell you about it next time 🙂

Session 5

When we last left off, the group was in the Witchy Woods on their way to kill the witch or so you’d think. As you remember from the last game, the group was doing the WoW quest for Abby Lewis, the little girl who wanted to find her friends to have her tea party with. The group, after some fun little hints ans clues and a lot of nose wiggling from yours truly, reunited the little girl with her toys. As they left, Abby game them pictures of her friends before she vanishes in the door way. From there the group gets lost in the woods.

They eventually came to a dead end with two Ravens sitting on a rock, and here they learned how much Miss Mary liked them. I had created such a nice poem for them, and I think it did too much of a good job getting them out of the woods.

Here it is:
Abby’s new friends we have quickly found
Miss Mary wants you to hear our sound.
Miss Mary says that the friends need to go
Or else she’ll put you Six feet below.
Miss Mary has plans for each one of you,
And trust us, this will be nothing new!
A fine purse out of you, a new boney servent of you.
The deer and the giant are not wanted here so go get shoo!

I guess that was enough for the group to be ike whoa nope we’re outta here. Because that’s exactly what they did. The idea to kill Miss Mary vanished as fast as the illusion to allow them to escape disappeared.

So, with that the group make it to the town and where Vinny has to roll another saving throw. Which they failed. Causing them to get to the next level of the plague. Poor thing 🙁 They manage to make it to a town where they get a doctor to look at them and they inform them this is something they haven’t seen in several years and the only true cure wqas a gods blessing. From there the Doctor informs them the gods that cured the people before was named Yuri. (oh no)
The group then calls up Yuri but her assistant answered and they began taking. he confirms it’s the same Yuri then asks why. They tell him that Vinny is super sick. He then asks, a very important question.
Fitz: Well did you guys go to her Shrine and get her blessing?
Vinny: I think so
Me: Nope. You guys bought the alcohol and wanted to go but instead you got super excited to leave the town you didn’t go. (I then showed them the notes I had made)
Vinny: Oh I guess we didn’t….How long do I have?
Fitz: Well It seems like about a week in a half or so. I suggest coming home and getting fixed, there’s things you need to do here.
The group then comes back home because it was made clear they were about a week and a half from the giant quest not including the time to kill them. They joked about letting Vinny die but they did end up coming back.
So the group meet up with Fitz who takes them into the war room where everyone has gathered. They see their boss seemingly able to see (this is important)

After the warlords disperse, Yuri greets the group as her eyes go from Jade to white and she’s unable to see again. They ask her what was going on ans she explained how she was blinded by a god trying to seek her powers after brother passed away. It was a common thing among gods. Innocent right?
DM Mistake 3: I began to explain the process to the group and two of them started to get an idea…

Yuri: So during a fight for my god powers he threw poison at me and it caused me to lose my sight,
Liet: So gods can fight other gods for their powers?
Yuri: Yes, they can.
Liet: Can mortals do it?
Yuri: None have succeeded why?
Liet: But it’s possible?
Yuri: I mean….I don’t know.
Liet to Kit: We should try to Kill Yuri and gain her powers
Kit: *nods*
Me: oh come on guys……haha….don’t.
Liet: What do you think of this type of barbarian with htis race?
Me: are you serious?
Liet: I mean if I die….I’d want to reroll.
Me: You’re serious

And that’s where the session ended for the most part. The group walked and talked and were told they are going to Yuri’s home country and castle to see what’s going on. There’s a lot of rumors out there so they need to prepare.

Will the group succeed in the new land? Will they kill their boss? Find out next session!

First few sessions

So I know this is going to include the first few sessions. Before the story gets deeper I felt it would be best to include the first few sessions before each get their own. Now, here’s the tale of Vinny the Snakeborn Gunslinger, Meh the Obitu Warrior, Kit the Tiefling Rogue and Liet the Half Giant Monk. Vinny and Meh have been ruled the leaders of the group.

Session 1: Boy this one started really nice. I gave the group several letters that explained that whey were wanted and they had to follow clues to find the right person to talk to. Now, the group was able to narrow down what race they were looking for but the location wasn’t right. I was so confused, I had worked everything out to the key and they should have been able to find it. I was so wrong. What I didn’t realize, I had wrote out one of the clue incorrectly and it somehow managed to work haha. Not sure what is going on. The was about it. The big bad DM messed it up haha With that being said, the group still figured out where they needed to go after they head to the wrong spot.
From there, the group heads to meet with their boss who explains what they are to be doings, and that was it. They are then given their first mission when they wake up the next day.

Session 2: Now this one is a lot of fun. The group is given their first mission. Discover the truth behind the false princess. Pretty good idea. The group was informed about bandits in the area and to be careful. The group appears next to a town where a distraught mans comes up to them begging them to find his daughter. Meh agrees to help the man and then just leaves town. Like peace boiiii.

As the group leaves town, they come across a strange encampment with a fairly nice number of armored men. The conversation went like this.

Armored guy: Hey, what brings you guys out here?
Meh: Um, we’re trying to find the Kinstone(these are stones used for teleportation)
Armored guy: Oh well it’s back that way.
Meh: I heard there were goblins in the area.
AG: Goblins? What?
Meh: Oh shit sorry Bandits! Well we need to go now bye!
And then the group keeps going down the road like they don’t even care. After a few days they reach the false princess.

Session 3: The group comes back and sees one of the Warlords who tell them that the bandits are right outside of the town they came in. They then go into the abandoned town and start to search the area before learning the town isn’t vacant. From there they manage to convince they town to help out the plague survivors and such. Noting too exciting happened this one. When they come back, I commit DM Mistake 2. I gave them so much money. I totally wasn’t thinking realistically and was like ‘here’s several thousand gold enjoy it. Well shit.

Session 4: This day, the group set off to search the guilds. At this point I panic. I didn’t come up with guild names so I just make up two. Twin Breakers and Shadowell. The group thinks Shadowell is awesome so they go to see what quests they have to offer for the most gold. I realized how much I messed up so I said “ok you can take on a succubus for 500g. They group realized that they had no magic users so they decided to go to the Twinbreakers. They gave them a job to kill a giant for 1000g and they deemed it more suited for their skills. So they ask their boss for a horse and cart and head off on their way.

Session 5: So this was a fun session. The group decided to take the shortcut through the Witchy Woods to get to their target faster. During their trip (2 weeks ingame btw) they get snucked up on by a group of Kobolds. I was like “This is gonna be cute innocent fun and the’ll just scare them off.” How wrong was I that day. Instead of just being nice people they slaughter all but one of the Kobolds. WhenI say slaughter I legit mean slaughter. They were like destroyed, dismembered and beheaded. Those poor Kobolds 🙁

The group finally made it to the Witchy Woods and they come across the village that was there before the witch took over. They are greeted by a little girl. Now, if you play Alliance on WoW, you can feel the groups pain in this.
Me: So this little girl seems super happy to see new people and she wants your help.
Meh: With what?
Me: She wants you to help her find her friends since they’re late for a tea party.
Liet/Kit: *sighs loudly*
Liet: No, I am not doing this you know how many times I’ve had to do this in WoW?
Kit: Right? Ughhhhh
Me: hehe I couldn’t resist you were in Witchy Woods!
Vinny/Meh: have no idea what’s going on
Liet then begins to explain the quest to the two. Hahaha Oh boy.

Session six is tomorrow, I can’t wait to see what we do but I will totally be sharing it with all of you!!!

I'm live! Come say Hi!
CURRENTLY OFFLINE
