Next Session: Friday June 24th

Posted in General on June 21, 2011 by Carl

After a blowout last week it’s time to reconvene. I’m happy to continue SRaO if you guys are game.

Sean, Charlie and Jo are confirmed, Jules is wavering (go on, you know an evening of watching Brick sexually torment goblins is the perfect antidote to a tough week) and Richard and Stefan are out. Russell, we need you! Are you in?

Oh, and I’m very happy to report that there will be no gaming on July 8th! \m/

Next Session: Friday 17th June

I should be home by 7.45pm this Friday, but I’m up for running some SRaO if we have the numbers, or some boardgames if we don’t. Stefan is out, I think Richard is out too: who else can make it? Jules, you were AWOL last week, are you OK?

What the Hell?

Long has Azarr Kul sought the crystal shard Crenishibinon, mightiest of artefacts.  Now it is finally within his grasp. But its ancient guardian stirs, and in the struggle that follows the shard is shattered into a thousand pieces, and within each piece a fragment of reality splinters off, and new paths are trod…

Which is how the SRaO come to join the Red Hand of Doom, meet up with Nurklenuk (Nurklenak’s younger brother), convert many to Pelor (Bride of Tiamat) and finally stand on the outskirts of Brindol ahead of invasion day.

Their mission is to hunt down a fleeing princess, who represents the last spark of home for the beleaguered city. Off the party go, ambushing her and slaughtering the girl’s retinue before attempting to cut down the princess herself.

At this point things go a little wrong. The girl transforms into a huge silver dragon, and though the party manage to defeat her they are cursed, and banished to Hell. Down they plummet, into the stygian depths.

Hell turns out to be a tarpit, surrounded by seagulls and razor sharp rocks. The party are all naked, and stripped of weapons. After lots of very painful trudging about they discover that demons and devils are at war, and that their souls are in high demand to work for one side or the other. Travelling involves moving away from your destination. Bryn decides to make a cup out of tar and drink his own wee.  They meet a man who has cut his own arm off to use for shoes, which Brick steals. They approach a settlement where Brick outwits some demons but fails to gain anything from the deal.

Next Nurklenuk jumps a settler and steals his skin cloak, then runs away. The settler is killed by Brick and his bone club and guts belt  are taken. More settlers approach and offer to purchase body parts from the fallen man; Nurklenak demands all their skin in payment.

With each evil act the party are finding themselves growing in power, but is this evidence that their souls are being rapidly eroded? Or maybe this all a test sent by Pelor to allow the party to prove their devotion through pain. Will the party join the chaotic demons or lawful devils? Tune in next week to find out.

I’m up for hosting this week, but I’m not going to have time to get the next SRaO session ready I’m afraid.

Stefan, you mentioned you had a 4E D&D module you could run. Do you have any pregens we could use for it?

Also I no longer have my mobile number. I’ll let you know as soon as I get a new one.
