Re: Castle Whiterock Campaign writeup

After destroying the gnomish clockworks guarding the large common room, the party headed up to the balcony and the myriad doors that led from it. They were nothing more than student dorm rooms, and contained nothing of interest or value except some mouldering books written in gnomish. The hatch in t...

Re: Castle Whiterock Campaign writeup

I thought people might appreciate this quick update on who is in the party these days since I throw out names without mentioning who the heck they are. Dramatis Personæ Caelifer: a monk Kristle: a ranger/rogue Quav'Ria: Cleric of Fenwar Kethren: Werewolf (and biggest mistake I ever made when running...

Re: Castle Whiterock Campaign writeup

We had a really great session this week. The group finally had time to go back to the collapsed section of tunnel and investigate the "Mystery of the Lonely Organist". After clearing the section of tunnel, the group found themselves in a large natural cavern with a formation along one wall that form...

Re: Castle Whiterock Campaign writeup

After a quick recap, it was back to the action. Or at least discussion of possible actions and cheap jokes (this is D&D after all). The party headed to the blocked passage where they could still hear the mournful sounds of a pipe organ (even after 17 years!). Kristle figured it would take several ho...

Re: Castle Whiterock Campaign writeup

We struggled because we were all used to Klooge and once you get it set up for your game, it ends up doing everything but polishing your dice for you. So far the main thing I like about Roll20 is the dynamic lighting, but for everything else I prefer Klooge. I just wish it didn't have the stink of A...

Re: Castle Whiterock Campaign writeup

Much of last night's session was spent getting everyone onto the new Mumble server and trying to figure out how to play in Roll20 vs Klooge.Werks which we had been using. Mumble seemed like a success. I have serious doubts about Roll20, but we're going to give it another go next week. Lady Chauntess...

Re: Castle Whiterock Postby admin » Mon Jul 01, 2013 6:17 am It looks like I'm a bit behind in the updates, so here's what happened: After beating up the harmless old lady, the brutal thugs (aka Heroes) rifled through her belongings and split them up.

Re: Castle Whiterock Campaign writeup

The Witch's imp servitor was concentrating on taking down Quav'Ria the cleric, and was able to hit her with his poisonous sting almost at will, but she was made of sterner stuff and kept resisting the toxic venom. Izelda, now free of the snake, managed to line several of the heroes up for a Lightnin...

Re: Castle Whiterock Campaign writeup

Reaching the top of the tower, it was time for the group to assault the lair of the witch. Fizz missed the alarm and summoning traps on the trapdoor in the ceiling, but Celeb used a detect magic and noticed it. That let Fizz take another run at it and he found the trap on his second try. He managed ...

Re: Castle Whiterock Campaign writeup

It was another exciting, battle-heavy evening. What is this "roleplay" I hear so much about? (Well, I suppose they might roleplay if they ever ran into something other than plants and trolls). Anyway, it turned out there were a total of 3 Assassin Vines covering the wall of the Candy Cottage of the ...

Re: Castle Whiterock Campaign writeup

This session started with everyone's favorite activity: splitting the loot! After treasure was split (no love for the Hat of Disguise, but loads of interest in the Belt of Giant Strength), the group continued along the path until almost sunset. They chose to leave the trail and camp near the stream ...

Re: Castle Whiterock Campaign writeup

When we last left our merry band of misfits, the party had just survived an attack on their cleric by one of their own. After putting down the werewolf, the group tied him and had Quav'Ria move out of sight while they questioned him to see if he was still under a compulsion to murder her. Kethren se...

Re: Castle Whiterock Campaign writeup

I've been slow in updating because we got so little done last session. The troll battle lasted FOREVER. But the day was eventually won. After resting for a few days in the woods off the trail, the group ran into a small group of Satyrs who chatted with them and warned about the horrible witch that l...

Re: Castle Whiterock Campaign writeup

Just a note to anyone reading: The party will be running through Escape from the Forest of Lanterns for the next several weeks before returning to Castle Whiterock. They were getting burned out on the Castle and the endless humanoids. I'm using this side trek to do two things, do something a bit dif...

Re: Castle Whiterock Campaign writeup

And the fight against Cinderalis continued. The party quickly found that this monster was much more of a challenge than the nameless White Dragon they had faced outside. Cinderalis turned his attention primarily to Kethren, but didn't forget entirely about Caelifer behind him, striking him with his ...

Re: Castle Whiterock Campaign writeup

After some bookkeeping and changes from leveling up, we hit the ground running. The party (except for their new centaur friend who couldn't make the climb) chose to continue investigating the watch tower the white dragon had used as a lair. When the silver and copper were moved, a trap door was reve...

Re: Castle Whiterock Campaign writeup

After quickly moving out of the Troglodyte temple before Benthoc emerged from the stone he had merged into, the group climbed to the second level and made camp in the orc throne room. Once safely ensconced within, they set about healing and regaining spells. After two days, they felt they were ready...

Re: Castle Whiterock Campaign writeup

Kethren and the party took a tact that I hadn't anticipated. When confronted by the dozens of troglodyte young and females, Kethren claimed leadership of the tribe by right of combat. He told the assembled masses that since he had killed the males, he was now in charge of the tribe. An older female ...

Re: Castle Whiterock Campaign writeup

Returning to Castle Whiterock was a challenge. Again, the wind and the snow made the journey difficult. Delving into the halls and tunnels below Castle Whiterock, the party ventured deeper, down the long, winding stairs they had discovered in the room with the orc zombies. They entered a large room ...

Re: Castle Whiterock Campaign writeup

The party chose to return to Cillamar to seek magical help deal with the disease Ashianna and Celeb had contracted, as well as do some research on various subjects. The trip to Cillamar was uneventful, though took longer than usual because of the snow that had been building. Ashinanna and Celeb were...

The next two rooms had functioned as barracks for the orcs of Clan White Roc and were both in disarray and empty of creatures and treasure. They looked like they had already be...

Re: Castle Whiterock Campaign writeup

A few weeks ago, the party picked up the Tome of Tales (see DCC #38) and one PC has been messing with it every time they stop to rest. I'm playing it out pretty slowly so far, but I expect that before the end of March the group will be taking a side trip to the Forest of Lanterns, which may be inter...

Re: Castle Whiterock Campaign writeup

The party slowly made their way into the room, ready for anything. From out of the darkness of the underground pool came a high-pitched female voice speaking in Sylvan. "Are you nice? Or are you nasty? Will you help me?" Kristle the Ranger spoke Sylvan and assured the voice that they were nice and w...
