Gimble Timbers put his ear to the oak door, heard the man, and in a second all of the blood had drained from his face. There could be no mistaking that voice. STRAHD! Read More

Session 25 in our online Dungeons & Dragons ‘Curse of Strahd’ campaign was short and to the point. Literally.

As Baräsh crossed the threshold of the church he turned and saw Kevon in the vampire’s clutches. Strahd’s focus was now entirely upon the tiefling, his mouth open revealing two sharp extended incisors that closed around Kevon’s neck. He did not struggle as Strahd drained his blood. Read More

As we entered the tent we saw a hunched figure cradling a crystal ball. “At last you have arrived. Ha ha ha ha,” said Madame Eva. She then proceeded to recount our entire life stories to us. “Do you now wish me to unravel the strands of fate and reveal your future in this accursed land?” Read More

Last night was the sixth session of our Curse of Strahd campaign. We awoke in the morning, refreshed. We felt rejuvenated and happy for the first time since we met in the abandoned caravan site a few days earlier. And then the memories of the past days’ events came back to us. Read More

‘D&D Curse of Strahd’ Player’s Report: Session 5

We were in a dark crypt below the church. The stairs leading back had been covered in a magical grease, the fighter was feeling the effects of bad cheese poisoning, there was a wild magic storm going on.

‘Dungeons & Dragons’: Adventures in 5th Edition

A few years ago, after discovering the joys of ‘Acquisitions Incorporated,’ I got really excited about playing ‘Dungeons & Dragons.’ So I did what any sane, married 30-year-old would do, and without even waiting to find a group to play, I bought the ‘D&D’ 5th edition Starter Set, ‘Player’s Handbook,’ and ‘Monster Manual,’ and planned my first game.
