Dungeons and Dragons

Our D&D group has been running for about 14 -15 months now, using the 4th edition rule-set and a homemade grid board.  We starting out from a position of no-knowledge to where we are now, which is a (mostly) functioning, if eclectic group.  Our characters have gone from a heroic group of adventurers out to help humanity into a hardened mercenary group who have done some rather questionable things.  I charted the course of our group through a series of summaries in story format from October 2014, and it is those that I will share here.

Current players can find level and loot updates here

Dice-bag-2014Campaign 1

We worked through the official Campaign “Keep on the Shadowfell”.  I was not there for all of it, and didn’t start writing the summaries until the start of the next set when I took over as Dungeon Master (DM).  So no stories documenting our early years.

Campaign set 2

This was a set of quests and situations made to help our group level up enough so we could tackle the next official Campaign.  No spoilers here, except for the first quest which we had neglected to complete before, and hey, every bit of exp counts 🙂  Most of these were done as sort of mini tutorials for different aspects of the game, and I end up writing more as the story moves onwards.

Campaign 3

Having leveled up enough, we moved onto the official campaign “Thunderspire Labyrinth”.  If you have yet to play this campaign, be aware there are a LOT of spoilers if you read the stories listed below.  Babis took over as DM so I could play a character for this, but I continued to write the summaries listed here.  The campaign is ongoing with quite a bit of custom content added in.  As always, I will update this page as we continue on.

Campaign 4

After the rather dismal display at the Keep, leaving two of our player characters dead and a couple of core people unable to attend over summer, we decided to change things up a bit.  We recruited some new players and started this next home-made campaign.  A bit of change of scenery, some space to get the new players more confident in play and hopefully get our team strong enough to eventually go back and get revenge.
