Celestial Winter – Session Seven, Guests of Giants

At the end of last session, the group surprised me when most of them agreed to hop in a Giantess’ bag and get carried up the mountain. Two characters – Caldus and Kendra – refused this offer and instead started climbing up the mountain themselves. Caldus’ player missed the session so we left him at…

Pathfinder with Pop: The Rose Street Revenge – Snippets

Last month I introduced Pop (my Dad) to Tabletop RPGs by running Pathfinder’s Master of the Fallen Fortress for him. It must have been a success because we’re out to visit this weekend and he asked me to run a follow up session. I decided to switch over to the Pathfinder Second Edition Playtest for…

Pathfinder Second Edition Playtest – Initial Review

This will serve as my initial “I read through the rulebook twice” review of the Pathfinder Second Edition Playtest rules. I’ll be offering additional thoughts after running playtest sessions but I want to get some of this out of my head while it’s fresh. The Three Sentence Review The short review is that I love…

Bridgette does a lot of hunting throughout and supplements their meager rations with plenty…

Pathfinder with Pop: Master of the Forgotten Fortress

My Dad has been showing a lot of interest in Dungeons and Dragons lately so I decided to run a sitting of Pathfinder for him. I’ve never run an adventure module – always homebrew – but I have a few that I’ve picked up for inspiration. I looked through them and there was the Master of…

Finding themselves abruptly returned home, the group quickly split into Lonepine and Haven contingents. Spazzlethrop and Edward hurried back to report what had transpired to the Elders…while Bridgette, Caldus, and Kendra returned to Lonepine to check on their families.

Celestial Winter – Session Four, A Tainted Land

Celestial Winter – Session Three, “Old”

Passing through the portal the group finds themselves somewhere dark and cold. Only a few distant stars tinkle weakly overhead. A large sway of the sky is completely dark, empty of even faint celestial light. Spazzlethrop lights his lantern illuminating a rocky debris field. The air is cold and dry, there’s no sign of water,…
