So… yes. I’ve been playing DnD again for a while, and I’ve been posting about the amusing happenings therein to my Facebook, but that’s just not fair to the folks who I won’t friend because I don’t know them in meatspace. (Sorry.)
So… I’ll simply have to start Liveblogging my DnD sessions. To protect the innocent and the hilarious all players will be referred to by pseudonyms rather than their real names, and to get folk up to speed before I start this again, I thought I’d give a short run-down of the parties and escapades of the three games I’ll be liveblogging. I’ll put them up in the order the campaigns were started.
So the first game isn’t really DnD, it’s actually Wheel of Time D20. We’re set before the books, fairly significantly. The Cairhienen still haven’t screwed the pooch and cut down the tree yet, and if none of this makes any sense to you, you should skip to the next game.
We started the game in the Borderlands as a gang of convicts being shoved thru a ter’angreal, wound up in a non-existent Land Above the Blight, where we fought trollocs in a valley, got mobbed by rats in an abandoned city, and found our way to a city built around a citadel full of Darkfriends who gave other Darkfriends brand new bodies for a price. Steppen the Wilder passed himself off as a Darkfreind, but the women of the party were presumed to be bodies for the taking and he didn’t discourage that thought, leading to the three of them being stuck in a cell while he ran around the citadel unchecked, until he found an alchemy lab and smelled the chloroform. The party fought their way out of the citadel, with the aide of a Whitecloak, kidnapping a party member’s sister’s body (currently inhabited by a Darkfreind) and making off outside the city. During a second infiltration of the Citadel the party got trapped in a ter’angreal store room where they were fighting a Myrdrall using a shocklance… a ter’angreal got shot and turned blue and made a woooosh woooosh noise, and transported the party thru a change of DMs to…
Seanchan, where the party met up with some new, local, PCs and engaged in a run for the seaport to get the hell off the continent. Along the way they were chased by an angry truthseeker, took a ride on some Toh-raken, crashed several Empire toh’raken, got attacked by local fauna and some creepy not-grey-men and a party member with a wasting disease, and the escaped Machin Shin, before fleeing the country ahead of some grey wasting caused by the Machin Shin, via skimming…
Then we got into combat in the skimspace and lost our bearings and came out.. with another new DM… In the Seafolk Islands… where so far the party has managed to charter a ship the hell out of there… and not much more.
Issorn – Algai’d’siswai 8/ Wanderer 1 – Played by Me! Mayo!!! The Third DM – Original Party PC – Also known as the World’s Clumsiest Aiel, because I keep rolling botches for her. Wrongly convicted of a Gleeman’s murder because everyone knows those Maiden’s of the Spear kill a man a day. Put her own First Sister down hard earlier in the campaign, when her body was hijacked by a Darkfriend. Is a Viewer, but everyone forgets that most of the time. Currently engaging in bed relations with Vareck and still wants to find her dead sister’s baby to bring him home. Recently learned to swim… the hard way. About to become an NPC for a while, since, I’m DMing for the module.
