Once we were rested, we went out afresh in search of Erxidar.  Imagine our surprise when we found her none too far away — screaming, of course, but at least we found her!  She was surrounded by strange, twig-like creatures and, upon their defeat, she explained that they were called Twig Blights.  Minions of a human magic-user named Bellac, they were intended as guardians for a tree of magical fruit in a place called the Twilight Grove.  According to goblin rumor, some of the fruit invigorated the spirit while others stole it away.

[ D&D ] International Tabletop Day!

It was a wonderful day of gaming out at Ettin Games & Hobbies for International Tabletop Day 2017!  

We had the amazing opportunity of playing in the Season Six Epic opener, The Relics of Khundrukar!  No spoilers here for those who haven’t gotten to play it, but it was a fantastically fun time with some great challenges along the way.  Our organizers kept everything running smoothly and we got down to the wire on the final battle, but still completed our mission with three minutes to spare!  It was great to watch both new players and old banding together toward a common goal. I really hope we see more of these epic campaigns because they’re a blast to play.  I’m looking forward to the next one!

Consider this my friendly reminder to support your local hobby shops.  A gaming community is only as strong as you, the gamers, make it but it’s shops like these that give us a home.

After resting in Meepo’s lair, the party decided it was time to go and collect Erxidar.  However, we found the room infested with hobgoblins. We dealt with them handily, but one tried to bolt.  Awsht caught up with it and ended its days.  It fell into the pit we narrowly avoided on our way in. Two small goblin skeletons lay there, victims of their own trap, perhaps? Conkin went down into the pit to investigate, finding a few items of interest, but also another rat!  These small ones must look tasty. It didn’t last long after biting the druid.

Erxidar, as it happens, was accidentally struck by the poisoned dart that Awsht triggered on the door. We realized this when the wizard fell asleep right in the middle of the room! Fortunately, we’d just emptied out a nice, cozy room to stow her in!

As tasked by the Harpers, I arrived in the town of Oakhurst to seek out any information concerning one of our agents that has gone missing, part of an adventuring party looking into the mysterious Sunless Citadel.  Beyond that small tidbit of information, my contacts gave me nothing further, so it falls now to me to uncover the truth of what has gone on…
