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. While Kari and Peron kept the loup garou distracted, Nodnal used Mage Hand to snag the torc while Elrian put up a Wall of Stone between them and the beast. Along with their new…

Redmon’s Requeim: Sessions 13 & 14 — Red Moon Rising

The Loup Garou was ferocious, tearing through the party in the courtyard of the Clearwater Lumberyard. They stood tall in the onslaught, but things were looking grim till Nod called on the Skull of Jim Darkmagic’s Clone to cast Moonbeam causing the werewolf to revert to human form, which the party were surprised to discover…

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. She told them her story, of how she was Avyrll, sister of Amelie Celeste and aunt to Amelie’s child who…

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….

Box #RPGaDay2021

Here we are— 25 days into this year’s RPGaDay. Once more allowing fate to choose my prompt and it is the one word of the group that I was least interested in. That word is box, so if I’m going to write in brief, I’d best think outside it. I suppose the easiest response is…

Redmon’s Requeim: Sessions 8 & 9 — Kiss of the Spider

Exploring the caverns beneath Avignon further, looking for a different egress out, the party found another path deeper into the caves instead. Not wanting to delve into even greater depths, they soon found themselves without a choice — trapped by a gelatinous sphere, they fought off bloodsucking bats, before Kari stumbled into the yawning cavern…
