Discovering they had been trapped in a fever dream onboard the cthonic Deathwish, the Lionshields regrouped, reacquainting themselves with what had last transpired — the death of the wizard Herron at the hands of their nemesis Dirk Flisten, who had acquired the Ring of Summer Flame. Flisten met a cruel end, however, when he was…

Redmon’s Requiem: Sessions 19 & 20 — Fire & Blood

Gaston Delacourt laughed, “You bear my mark,” he said to Kari, “thus do my bidding!” Nodnal called upon the Demilich, Jim Darkmagic, and used a wish spell to remove Kari’s lycanthopic curse. “Fool,” Gaston cackled. “Kari… kill the cat.” The mark was not the curse, but the torc Kari wore to control the beast within….

Redmon’s Requiem: Sessions 17 & 18 — Over the Moon

As Nodnal snatched the Time Dagger from its fluid prison, the earth began to shake and rip asunder, as tentacles rose from the deepening crevasses. Gathering together, the Lionshields debated their situation, but realizing they had the item they had been seeking, they put it to use. Nod, sacrificing a sliver of intelligence to do…

Redmon’s Requeim: Sessions 15 & 16 — The Reliquary

Through clever manipulation and sly magic, the Lionshields were able to recover the torc and escape the smuggler’s den without conflict.

Redmon’s Requiem: Session 12 — Bark at the Moon

The mysterious woman lead the party deep into the forest and to another cabin, there administering healing and restoration to those in need, particularly Kari who suffered greatly at the hands of the loup garou.

My review of Gobsmack! by Mark Finn

The ever-masterful Mark Finn, author of Blood & Thunder, a brilliant and must-read biography of the Godfather of Sword & Sorcery, Robert E. Howard, kindly sent me a copy of his latest work, part of Kickstarter’s zinequest series, Gobsmack! If, like me (and it seems, Mark Finn), you’re fond of goblins, you’re in for an…

Redmon’s Requiem: Session 11 — Loup Garou

After a rough night spent in the Avignon stables, made all the worse by Elrian’s cursed hand, the party followed the Highwayman’s Lute trail to a fishing village on the coast. Heavily wooded, they were able to spy cabins in their midst, and in the distance, three ships in the cove. Warships, according to Kari….
