Sentinels of the Multiverse: The Kickstarter Campaign

Posted in Uncategorized on November 7, 2011 by Carl

SotM is by far my favourite game of the moment. Of late D&D sessions have been ending early, leaving just enough time for a quick gathering of Wraith, Bunker, Legacy Absolute Zero and a host of other heroes in the face of the villainy of Baron Blade, Omnitron et al.

The grim and gritty Rook City expansion is due in a few months, and to get in on the act of that, the main game, and the lovely promo Legacy and Wraith cards you can pledge cash to the Kickstarter campaign. Head over here to get involved:

$85 plus $10 shipping will get you the whole lot, or there are tons of other pledges you can make that get you differing rewards.

Beating a hasty retreat the party press on deeper into the chilly lair, finding a book-lined parlour. Thovar helps himself to a ruby broach, and Artheon to a magical tome. The tome then bursts into  swarm of bugs, blinding everyone nearby and leaving them stumbling and shrieking.

Order is eventually restored, and taking the book the somewhat shaken party discover a secret door that leads, via a seeming dead-end and wall button, to another dimly lit chamber. Herein stands a tall tree, with 6 humanoid forms, shrouded, at its base.

The party make for the far door, but as twisted roots and branches begin to snake after them Thovar discovers the door is locked! With an almighty shoulder barge he flattens the door, and the party stumble into a narrow passage with the arboreal monstrosity in hot pursuit, only to find another dead end. Tetsu spots another hidden button in the wall, and with the horrid timber closing in fast behind them he throws caution to the wind, and presses…
