Arrrrrr, me mateys. This be yer Captain speakin’.
I be here t’ speak th’ tales o’ yer adventurin’ bones t’ th’ world. My wee birdies be makin’ sure I be aware o’ yer movements an’, so far, I be proud o’ ye. I be seein’ ye be havin’ already been introduced t’ th’ Th’ Black Skull, a sla’er ou’ o’ Port Vlore in West Africa. Barbarians an’ thieves — all o’ them! ‘Tis a miracle ye made ‘t t’ th’ South reaches o’ th’ Old Atlantic. I would bet some o’ ye be lucky t’ nay ben used fer devious means an’ tossed o’er th’ side.

The skiff rocked quietly in the water. It was dark. The signal flare had yet to burst in the sky and the guards were on edge. It wasn’t like the flare to be late. But not one soul chose to speak up.

Just finished watching the first episode of The Walking Dead season 3 and I’m back in survival horror mode. The gang played Zombie Run a while back and enjoyed it quite a bit. Looking to run another at some point.

- Grimm blasts Lich to smithereens with an extra-damage Bolt.
And that’s pretty much all she wrote. Our brave adventurers prevented Lizaria from staining the rest of the continent with his black slimy version of evil… this time, anyway. Our GM noted that we had only destroyed his physical form. He might yet return. But that adventure will come another day.
Some thoughts on the wrap-up. Read the rest of this entry »
