The Battle of Troll-Burn Bridge

Posted on

Our journey back to Triboar had been uneventful. Yes, we’d been attacked by bandits, but in all honesty, and I am nothing if not honest, I considered the bandits to be more like target practice rather than any real threat. I stepped onto Troll-Burn Bridge, the site of my heroic victory over a clan of […]

The Elemental of Surprise

Posted on

If experience has taught me one thing, it’s that when you enter a desecrated crypt where an icy mist swirls around a scorched sarcophagus the situation is likely to turn very nasty very soon. I was expecting trouble: maybe a wraith, maybe a vampire, maybe some other form of hideous undead. What I wasn’t expecting […]

All These People are Vampires by Tarquin The Honest

Posted on

Waking up chained to a stone column in an underground chamber is invariably not going to end well. At least this time I was still fully clothed, so it was already substantially better than the Dwarven Festival of Demesh that I had once found myself unwillingly participating in. My friends, and I use the word […]

And yes, the snake may have entered the bubble and released the green dragon trapped within. However, […]

The Malicious Wounding of Tarquin The Honest

Posted on

The dungeon beneath the Yawning Portal was dark, dank and dangerous. The list of heroic adventurers it has claimed is long and, after my injuries today, I fear the name of Tarquin The Honest may soon be written on that list too. Those of a squeamish disposition may wish to stop reading now. The atrocities […]

The Yawning Portal Score– by Tarquin The Honest

Posted on

I feel somewhat loath to recount this tale for I fear you may conclude that whenever we enter a bar we start a fight. Well, on this occasion we did not start the fight; we finished it. What the Yawning Portal tavern lacks in originality in name it makes up for with accuracy. The centrepiece […]

The River Ogres of Chionthar by Tarquin The Honest

Posted on

It would be fair to say that I am not naturally nautical, but the trip down the river Chionthar was proving to be far from arduous. Komgrirk, our pestilent kobold was wrapped in blankets hiding from the sunlight. He cowered at the back, sorry stern (Itiff fancied himself as a sailor, and would persist on […]
