the saturday mob had their first session this afternoon. our intrepid adventurers:

Session 2: Up Up
xpreport

so our group spent most of the session underground, cautiously exploring what was supposed to be a straightforward trip through a simple shard. it started with Sweg not being where he was supposed to be. then the lights went out. after that was a rather alarming trip to the bathroom. and then the fundamental nature of space got confused. up/up!

Session 3: Almost Dead
xpreport

again, the monday and saturday mobs exhibit weird synchronicities. again, our Noble, Generous, Omnibenevolent and indeed Flawless DM experienced the joy of bringing over half of the party very very close to death’s door (i.e. below 0 hp) without actually killing anyone. before that, of course, our heroes played with dirt, there was some more mucking about with the fundamental nature of space, and one of them got tied up by the rest (not that there’s anything wrong with that).

Session 4: What is Up and Down?
xpreport

our wiley heroes spend some time exploring alternative approaches to gravitation, knock out a donkey (or is it just sleeping?), chat up a dragon, and get sandblasted (well, gritblasted).

Session 5: The Overlords
xpreport

our wiley heroes dealt with a totally unexpected attack in the night and then decided to hang around with slavers for a while, and often unfriendly slavers at that, with resultant moral dilemmas and sweet PC-on-PC violence!

Session 6: The Bottle and Animal Inspections
xpreport

so lessee, how to describe today’s action? an unexpected stroke of good luck had one of our wiley heroes crawling as far into the bottle as he could and trying to stay there. it turns out that not everyone who claims to be a customs inspector is a customs inspector. but, turnabout being fair play, it turns out that not everyone who claims to be an animal inspector is an animal inspector either. bob had beer, falling down was the pits. and suddenly, at the end of all things, a familiar face left assorted mouths hanging open.

players are encouraged to expand on that, or not, as they see fit.

Session 7: Yet Another Brother
xpreport

our wiley heroes met Kalon and Falom’s long-lost (indeed, until now, unknown) elder triplet Dalong. a second-hand cry of maternal distress resulted in – well – shopping. a lot of shopping. the heroes then departed the Peace for points less peaceful, spent a little time humping, wondered at the disappearance of a recent acquaintance, got back to nature, and tried to convince a camel to go:

  • down stairs
  • into a jungle
  • into a cave

. pity them.

Session 8: In the Jungle
xpreport

our intrepid heroes engaged in what was for the most part a standard dungeon crawl, with the addition of some bizarre topology, a camel blocking the passageway a couple of times, and the always most welcome feared spectre of TPK.

Session 9: Into the Desert
xpreport

our wiley heroes finish exploring the passage between the jungle and the desert, and venture out into the heat. and then realize they should maybe wait until sometime after the middle of the day. (mad dogs and englishment…) that night they encounter a giant block of ice and a tumbleweed with a taste for blood, allowing them to again practice their favourite tactic of falling down in the middle of combat, and being healed back up again. the next morning, they meet a doorwarden, exchange words, and then blows. politely.

Session 10: The Prison
xpreport

aside from the wiley hero who stays behind to watch the camel (english translation: jeffsutton had a family emergecy and was unable to attend – playing through what happened to nevyn while he was guarding the camel will hopefully happen before the next saturday mob session), the intrepid adventurers descend into the bowels of the earth to be accosted by assorted hideous affronts to nature such as:

  • the force of gravity
  • something about the size of a bulldog, with tentacles where its ears should be
  • the force of gravity, again!
  • far too many people in need of help
  • a couple of hideous affronts to nature that have some idea about how to do combat

they deal with all of the above with more than their usual amount of aplomb. (english translation: no├Âne actually drops to 0 hit points.)
