The Darke Crusade – Attempt 1, Part 10

Well, it has been over a month and the bad (or good, I suppose?) news is that I’m still muddling through my first attempt at Book 15. When we left our intrepid hero, he had just seen two Drakkarim guards bury some loot before they went scarpering off. Were there any of my loyal readers… Continue reading The Darke Crusade – Attempt 1, Part 10

The Darke Crusade – Attempt 1, Part 9

When I said, in my last entry, that Lone Wolf reached ‘the surface’ I may have spoken too soon. Specifically, after dashing up 150 stairs (!), I only succeed in reaching a chamber with the only other door blocked by debris. Interestingly, there is a shaft / chimney in the centre of the roof, with… Continue reading The Darke Crusade – Attempt 1, Part 9

The Darke Crusade – Attempt 1, Part 8

A few preliminary notes : In a depressingly frequent occurrence, there has been yet another wholesale slaughter at a school in the United States.  My opinions on issues surrounding guns and other firearms are well known.  Let me just say … … ….. Never, NEVER be the one to have to tell a child they… Continue reading The Darke Crusade – Attempt 1, Part 8

The Darke Crusade – Attempt 1, Part 7

After some editorial difficulties, I was using my Grand Master Discipline of Assimilance to (hopefully) sneak my way past certain unhelpful guards…. Sneak is probably the wrong word since, as I approach the guards, my mastery of Assimilance allows me to summon a fog (!!!) from the ground which allows me to slip past. The… Continue reading The Darke Crusade – Attempt 1, Part 7

The Darke Crusade – Attempt 1, Part 6

Well! For those who remember the dark ages of ‘several days ago’. I asked my loyal band of commenters as to whether I could apply my bow-related bonuses to a particular R10 check. Specifically, it related to the issue of the severity of a wound caused by my arrow as an enemy charged towards me.… Continue reading The Darke Crusade – Attempt 1, Part 6

The Darke Crusade – Attempt 1, Part 5

I was fleeing by horseback after a daring rescue.  During said rescue, I used my archery skills to defeat an aspiring executioner. Lucky for Joe Dever that Robin Hood is in the public domain. Just saying. In any event, back to the action! As I ride down the street leading out of the centre of… Continue reading The Darke Crusade – Attempt 1, Part 5

The Darke Crusade – Attempt 1, Part 4

And we dive into February! Personal update : I unfortunately had a tooth removed today, but while feeling sorry for myself on the couch, I’ve been ABSOLUTELY LOVING the French political thriller ‘Spin’. Yeah, I’m a couple of years behind the curve on this one, but better late than never. When we left our protagonist,… Continue reading The Darke Crusade – Attempt 1, Part 4
