The Plague Lords of Ruel – Attempt 3, Part 2

Get ready for a long one, because the next update might be a while…. At the last cliffhanger, the choice was clear : fight or flight? Well, a life lived in fear is a life half-lived…. Aside : I HATE that some of the iconography of this movie (ie. The Matrix) has been hijacked by… Continue reading The Plague Lords of Ruel – Attempt 3, Part 2

The Plague Lords of Ruel – Attempt 3, Part 1

Another incarnation of Lone Wolf readies himself, feeling less and less worthy of the term ‘Grand Master’ with each death. Given my experiences so far, I’m going to experiment a little with my choice of Grand Master Disciplines. I’m going to take Kai-Surge and Kai-Shield rather than the (so far unused) skills of Magi-Magic and… Continue reading The Plague Lords of Ruel – Attempt 3, Part 1

The Plague Lords of Ruel – Attempt 2, Part 7

For those that have only recently joined us, I can confirm that I have raided the bedchamber of some poor unfortunate, before exiting and dashing down some conveeeeenient stairs. Wouldn’t you know it, there’s a locked door preventing further progress…. Do I  have a Copper Key?? To use the words of the book, the lock… Continue reading The Plague Lords of Ruel – Attempt 2, Part 7

The Plague Lords of Ruel – Attempt 2, Part 6

As many will recall, I TOTALLY managed to artificially manufacture a cliffhanger in the last episode, melodramatically leaving Lone Wolf with a choice between the Library and the Laboratory. Really, can’t it be simplified into an Arts / Sciences choice? And further, as someone with an Arts degree who has studied Philosophy, Literature, Drama, Economics… Continue reading The Plague Lords of Ruel – Attempt 2, Part 6

The Plague Lords of Ruel – Attempt 2, Part 5

First, the good news.  I have emerged from the caverns of (attempted) death and can once more taste the open air. (Insofar as the dangerous mists of a country plague-obsessed genocidal lunatics can be ”open air”) The bad news is that I am now confronted with a forest of ‘sickly grey-green trees’ which radiates an… Continue reading The Plague Lords of Ruel – Attempt 2, Part 5

The Plague Lords of Ruel – Attempt 2, Part 4

It is always inspiring when my commenters, after I have escaped death by the metaphorical skin of my teeth, confirm that the ‘really hard’ combats are still to come.     In any event, after defeating the UnDymamic Deo (Batman 66 TM) of the Vazhag and his dog, I note that the ‘Pit Agarashi’ has… Continue reading The Plague Lords of Ruel – Attempt 2, Part 4

The Plague Lords of Ruel – Attempt 2, Part 3

For those who remember, I was at the traditional gamebook / RPG choice of a passageway between north and south. Can anyone deny that smell is the obvious one of the five senses to use in deciding which way to go??? [Ignores chorus of disagreement] To the north, there is the stench of Vazhag hide… Continue reading The Plague Lords of Ruel – Attempt 2, Part 3
