Egress-ed and fell into Doc’s lab, smote him (after he dropped a fire ball on us). He was using the blood of Spine Hold children. We recovered and properly burned their corpses. Returned to Sharn with prisoner and phat lootz, and some bitch wants to marry Will. CL9 (I think)

Hiatus, and apparently no one else will keep track of stuff, so I’ll start again. Forum- Escape the druid camp, captured by Undying. Escape from Vol’s punks. Much pomp and posturing by Undying court, deploy us after “trial” to recover agent searching for Soul Forge.

33 10/22/06 – Continued the LToH. Targis lost his equipment. CL11

34 10/29/06 – Finished LToH. Burned the adventure, litterally. We shall never speak of it again.

36 11/19/06 – Speak with Drunna. Figgure out parasite went to dark lantern, track him, track next victim, take him back to king, implicate emmissary and free Drunna. Jin learns Truth. Kai almost dies to another non-deatheffect deatheffect.

37 12/03/06 – Travel to the Eldeen Reaches to investigate druid problem for Targis. Encounter and kill a black dragon. Find cause of shadowy corruption was druid from Spinehold being manipulated by a creature from the plane of shadow. Manage to kill the creature, free the druid. Nobody real near death experiences, but some close calls. Kai almost entirely useless.

Welcome to your Adventure Log!
A blog for your campaign

Every campaign gets an Adventure Log, a blog for your adventures!

While the wiki is great for organizing your campaign world, it’s not the best way to chronicle your adventures. For that purpose, you need a blog!

The Adventure Log will allow you to chronologically order the happenings of your campaign. It serves as the record of what has passed. After each gaming session, come to the Adventure Log and write up what happened. In time, it will grow into a great story!

Best of all, each Adventure Log post is also a wiki page! You can link back and forth with your wiki, characters, and so forth as you wish.

One final tip: Before you jump in and try to write up the entire history for your campaign, take a deep breath. Rather than spending days writing and getting exhausted, I would suggest writing a quick “Story So Far” with only a summary. Then, get back to gaming! Grow your Adventure Log over time, rather than all at once.
