Lords of Fluviallis

Player Challenge

I would like for each of you to write a short adventure log entry from the perspective of your character about the attack on the hunter’s cabin. It should reveal something about how your character feels about some aspect of the event. Doesn’t have to narrate the whole thing, just sort of a quick thought or two about something that happened there or that you all did or discovered. This is your chance to show something about your character in a OOC way.

…and BTW, in our haste to disband last game session, I neglected to tell you all that there are 6 bushels of radishes also found in the hunter’s cabin :)

Bravo!

Thought you guys did a great job this last game session, especially adjusting to some nasty suprises that came your way. I especially thought that Falinax was starting to come into his own as a druid, and I thought that Scott did some of his best RPing to date this last game. Good job dealing with the degenerate hunters as well!

Happy Independence Day!!

Happy 4th of July everyone!

You all have been happily traipsing about throughout the wilderness now for over a month of in-game time, and several months of RL time. You have fought off worgs, wights, bandits, mites, ghouls, and will-o-wisps. Thats a lot of hard work!

In celebration of your hard work and the holiday weekend, everyone add 1 point to their current constitution as a story award. This way it gives you a week to get it added on before you come to the next game!

If anyone watches Transformers, tell me how it is!

Random

- We find loot and a book, an ornate gold chalice (holy), 3 plates with silver inlay
- Village was called Greenwell
- Go towards ford looking for Fangberries, no luck

- kill count: Udo 1 centipede, Rich 1 mite, Hede got one mite to kill another, Demetri 2 mites, Ara 3 mites (including purple mite leader) & 1 centipede, Drakkus 1 giant tick
- we all get out

Notes:
Since I’m writing this I get to add how awesome I am that I took the centipede’s head all by myself in hitpoint, but Hede was giving me flanking (or something) bonuses, and that I threw my dueling sword to skewer the escaping purple mite leader thing (thank you for fetching it back Falinax).

Tapestry Rewoven

Plot Twist cards played so far:

Jeremiah – played Lust card on Jax and Svetlana. Tapestry Re-woven
Hede – played Bad Decision card on mite archers trying to shoot Demetri, they fell out of the tree. Tapestry Re-woven

Falinax – played Backstabbed! card on Mite Leader and Tick, they were flanked the rest of the battle.
Udo – Played Moment of Indecision card on bandit holding elf hostage, prevented him from doing a coup de grace.

Each were awarded a hero point, Jeremiah used his point to add 4 to an attack roll.
