Mike's Grothoth Campaign
(As reported by the roaming reporter, Rebecca Mistworth.)
Note from the Editor: We're still in the process of working
out an arrangement with our new field reporter. Until then, you
will just have to settle for my award-winning script.
The High Moor
- The howling wind is horrible! No, I am not talking about the
cold, piercing wind of the High Moor. Rather, I'm thinking of the
scolding that emanated from a Paladin of Tyr's mouth towards her
own party. Perhaps, though, I should start at the beginning.
- Our now infamous friends, the Paladin's Palatines, rested in
the small, smelly town of Boareskyr Bridge before hiring a guide
and setting off to destroy another ecosystem. Their guide seemed a
bit morose, but against the Paladin's perpetual scowl, who
noticed? They proceeded across the desolate, rocky High Moor for
at least a week before anything worthwhile happened.
- Then, late one evening, the two guards, the rock-headed dwarf
Flintmore Queryson (Remember him? He wrote us a while back.) and
the new guide, Jareth MoorStalker, heard a noise and left the
sleeping party to investigate. They were ambushed by some kind of
rabid hounds but easily survived, practically unscathed. But
here's the good part: Remember that they were supposed to be
GUARDING the sleeping party? Well, you guessed it, the hound's
friends attacked their still slumbering dog food, uh, comrades.
After a brief battle, the slightly wounded party dispatched the
creatures but not before awakening the Paladin's ire. She chewed
Mr. Queryson's and Mr. MoorStalker's tail to a mere nub. (I had to
cover my sensitive ears for the worst of it.)
- I know that I frequently pick on the Paladin. But, in this
case, her howling berating was justified. I do think that the High
Moor's winds were shamed that day, though.
- On the bright side, our adventurers hired a very handsome
replacement cleric. Ooh la la. I need to cool off my Crystal
- Well, that's all for now. Perhaps next time, our friends will
face a more worthy foe. It's my understanding that their quest
guest is "dying" to meet them!
- 'Til next time, ta ta!
