4E Campaign #27: The Final Paragon Battle

Exactly thirteen months after the the final heroic battle, we have the final paragon battle. The end of the paragon tier, some sixteen sessions in length. The paragon tier has been focused on the retrieval of five McGuffins, the ‘hearts’ of each of the five primordials. We started this session …

4E Campaign #25: The Dreaming Darkness

Been a bit remiss as I didn’t blog about session 24 as well as forgetting the digital camera for that session. A pity, since it involved a battle with a dragon, not just any dragon, but one of the 4 (or 5, maybe 6, who knows) badass dragons that exist …

4E Campaign #23: In The Coils of the Serpent II

A bit delayed, as we played last weekend, mostly because we didn’t even get the miniatures out this session. Shocking. You wouldn’t believe there was a time the group would have been shocked to have a miniature make it to the table never mind note the lack of them in …

4E Campaign #21: In The Coils of the Serpent

Things all went a bit Stygian this session, in the sense we visited a Stygian-style environment similar to the place in the Conan novels. Swamps. Jungles. Nubile women. Poisons. Black Lotus. All the usual stuff, we just happened to have the Dragonborn rather than snake people. Still, they’re both lizard-like …

The Great 4E Campaign ‘Gold Rush’

So, at the moment we are playing through our 4E campaign, The City of Kings, with the goal of playing through the distinct heroic, paragon and epic tier phases. The campaign uses Dungeons and Dragons 4E, obviously. Very rarely, as in only once previously across all games, the question of …

4E Campaign #20: The Dark Rises

The last two sessions, The Pool of Radiance and The Dark Rises, are two of the best of the campaign so far. True, one might say I’m inclined to say that since they are my character’s spotlight episodes, but it’s actually nothing much to do with that because the conflicts …

4E Campaign #19: The Pool of Radiance

I really enjoyed the session overall. It was just very…enjoyable. One of the staples of the 4E Campaign is the depth of it and the delivery. Awesome though this can be, it can create pacing problems in that we seem to breeze over the detail in favour of the awesome …

4E Campaign #18: Iceholme

This was quite an encounter heavy session, or seemed it. We entered the city of Iceholme, which was occupied by the sprawling army of the Vampire General Zirithian. We did a few skill challenges to get the lay of the land and discovered that the army was controlled by three …

4E Session #16-#17: Heart of Darkness

Well, we’ve gone from the oceans to the remote mountain of Wintertop and the town of Valberg in search of the Heart of Maran Gor, the second McGuffin on our epic quest. Needless to say, there was much going on. The actual play reports can be found at the bottom …

4E Session #15: The Belly of the Beast

Since one of the players was away in the US it was decided not to move on to retrieving the next Primordial Heart, and instead deal with some lingering issues from the last two sessions, expand the defeat of the Kraken and explore the potential for dream sequences in the …
