  1. Giant Killers

    by , 05-04-2010 at 05:31 PM (cplmac's campaign logs & blogs)
    On day two of working on the repairs to my war hammer and the arrow heads for Merrick, I noticed an odd clanging sound after I stopped working. The local smithy said that is the bell to gather towns folk to help defend Thurmaster. With the work needing to cool, I went straight to the meeting at the front gate. Of course, we have to go and try to save some fishermen that are being attacked by some giants.

    We arrive just in time to see two giants preparing to leave with a human body ...

We then set out for Thurmaster, but have to leave Corabell at the inn. She seemed to be in some type of trance. The Barkeep was paid to take care of her until we returned. As we set out, Blintz, Rennek, Tristiana, Dengar, and Godric are nowhere to be found. Hopefully the 5 of them have set out for Thurmaster earlier ...

    1) All personal luck can be conferred on another party member
    2) There's a sep. luck for the group that is less powerful but can be used by any in the group.

  5. What makes a hero or villain? (comments please!)

    We have a discussion going in our gaming group about the definition of a hero or villain in gaming terms, that is understood by both player and GM.

    Is "heroic" usually based in good/evil or malicious/virtuous? I would guess its gotta be good/evil since evil may act virtuous in pursuit of their goals.

    Here's the initial text -
    Hero or villains are labels for those characters adopting roles center to the game plot who also choose a code of conduct (evil ...
