Re: Castle Whiterock Campaign writeup

As much as I wanted to report a stunning victory for Drugila and all orc-kind, alas, it was not to be. Drugila's high armor class was not enough to prevent the punishing series of attacks she was taking from Kethren, Caelifer, Celeb, and Kristle. She was forced to waste her actions just casting cure...

Re: Castle Whiterock Campaign writeup

The remains of the tower were incredibly well preserved. The insides were covered with elaborate mosaics depicting scenic vistas of the sort which would visible from a castle in the clouds. The ceiling above towered 40' overhead. To the north was a gigantic iron door over 22' high. On the NE wall wa...

Re: Castle Whiterock Campaign writeup

Picking up where we left off last week, with the party hanging in a mushroom basket above a group of angry Derro attempting to slip a leash on their pet werewolf, things went like this: The derro, having explained to the DM that they should have been hitting more and doing more damage to the werewol...

Re: Castle Whiterock Campaign writeup

This week we added Ashianna, a sorceress. The journey back to town was without event. Back at the Inn of the Slumbering Drake, the party shared drinks and tales with Lady Chauntessa, who was sad to hear of Galrin's untimely death. She offered to write them a letter of introduction to The Holy Knight...

Re: Castle Whiterock Campaign writeup

At the bottom of the spiral stairs was a dark, dank and empty room. A heavy drape covered the exit to the room. Tas pulled back the curtain (and missed the traps) and was greeted with a heavy war maul to the chest and the sounds of suits of junk plate armor hitting the floor. The noise roused a smal...

Re: Castle Whiterock Campaign writeup

After spending time purchasing provisions and doing a bit of resting, the group returned to Castle Whiterock. The first thing they noticed was the bodies of the slavers had been moved around, like they had been searched perhaps. Otherwise, there was no sign of anyone or anything in the areas they ha...

Re: Castle Whiterock Campaign writeup

This week we added Kethren a barbarian lycanthrope and Celebheni an elvish warrior. On the trip back to Cillamar, the group was stopped by a Bugbear demanding a road fee to continue. The group decided NOT to pay 20 GP per person to use the bridge and opted instead to give him an arrow. More bugbears...

Re: Castle Whiterock Campaign writeup

Hoping they could find their way back into the light, the group moved on after resting and regaining spells. They decided to explore the door to the East which led into a N/S hallway with a door to the South. That way proved to be a disappointment, leading into a disused, dusty meeting room, now fal...

Re: Castle Whiterock Campaign writeup

To make a long story short, the players used terrain and the orc's blood lust to their advantage and just destroyed them. There's more to the story, and brave Hugin, the NPC warrior perished, but the party won the day and was able to escape from the orcish dungeon. They moved upstairs and were attac...

Re: Castle Whiterock Campaign writeup

As the newly freed villagers worked to hide the bodies of the dead orcs and arm themselves, the heroes chose to explore the door to the SE. The door led down a short flight of stairs into a round room that had been used as a torture chamber, though it had not been used recently. As the room was bein...

Re: Castle Whiterock Campaign writeup

While the bulk of the party concentrated on working to free the other prisoners, Ulfgar and Hugin opted to investigate the door in the southwest of the prison. Behind the door was a short hallway ending in a private room, containing a crude bed, bearskin rug, and an archery target. Another door led ...

Re: Castle Whiterock Campaign writeup

The Great Escape Tazinthe, Caelifer, and their new friend Katanya managed to climb the bars and move into a single cell without alerting the orc guards, and from there went up the wall and to the door they believed would lead to their equipment. They crept in and found everything they had been carry...

Re: Castle Whiterock Campaign writeup

When they returned to consciousness, the group was in a gigantic 50'x50' pit (10' deep) cut into 10' x 10' cells by iron bars. There were no doors to the cells, the only exit was through the top. They were joined in their imprisonment a dozen or so townsfolk, a warrior named Hugin, an elf Ranger/Dru...

If you're interested, you can read the full write ups with pictures at http://www.disgruntleddwarf.com. Note: this follows their inaugural adventure and an overland jaunt to deliver...
