Hi all, today for this campaign journal I'd like to do something different yet again and take you through my preparation process as a DM. I hope it doesn't spoil the fun for my players (I know that Khoa reads the blog) and so I must keep this text spoiler-free as much as possible. As … Continue reading A Strange City | Session #6 | The Magic Manor (or how I learned to love the prep).
It's been two weeks since my last post, here's what happened in our campaign! First of all, I hosted a session through text for Liudolf the Halberdier (played by Tuan), as he was separated from the group during the camp escape session. This is what today's post will cover. A little bit after being captured … Continue reading A Strange City | Session #5 | Liudolf’s Escape
Hi all, For this post I'd like to try something different: break down the session in a more mechanical way, rather than a storytelling way as I usually do. Let me know what you think in the comments. Session #4 started with Ninetales the rogue and Nhat the sorcerer coming to their senses at the … Continue reading A Strange City | Session #4 | Escape from the pit!
The heroes meet a strange companion and set out to explore.
This session started very quickly, with Nhat using Acid Splash on the locked door to little results, and then on the lock itself as my players (formerly students) learn how to play with me as their GM and to be more precise with their words. Past the door, the pair of pyromaniacs ran downstairs to … Continue reading A Strange City | Session #2 | The Dog Biters
I just now finished DMing for 2 hours to 2 of my private students - two nice and smart persons who wanted to try out TTRPing for a while now but due to my depression, I'd been putting off. Here are the characters (portraits by Nhat) Their backstories were sufficient and they fleshed them … Continue reading A Strange City | Session 1 | Teleported?
After a few months off, three players and the DM were able to find a suitable timeslot to return to King's River and continue building a story together. To save time and after consulting the players, the DM decided to move time forward. Refer to the "Prologue" section for more details. Étienne Bureau, the DM. … Continue reading King’s River S02, e01 | Out of the woods
In this episode Leo, Tibalt and Uz attempt to rescue Gaotl, from the clutches of the black lizardmen. Introducing: Muwafi, the Satyr Druid!
This week's recap will be more straight-forward as I don't have much free time this week. Sorry! In the hopes that you will forgive myself, I will include MtG cards from the custom set I'm building within this post, as long as they are related. Disclaimer: I own NONE of the art featured, and I … Continue reading King’s River |S01 Ep03
((We picked up this session directly where we left off last time, but missing two players - the minotaur barbarian and the minotaur bard - who had family responsibilities, so a new player joined in to fill in the spot.)) As the trio of Tibalt, Gaotl and Fu stood at the foot of the limestone … Continue reading King’s River | S01 Ep02
