Diary of a Drow – Day 21 – 22

This post is part of a series. To blast to the past, click here. OOC: We last left our adventurers in the room at the bottom of the prison of the giant. They had killed the water elemental and were wringing out their armor or basking in the sun. The idea of basking in the sun doesn't appeal to Drow. … [Read more...]

Diary of a Drow, Day 20 (morning)

This post is part of a series. To blast to the past, click here. OOC: We last left our adventurers in the room at the bottom of the prison of the giant. They had released and defeated the fire elementals and had to go to sleep because their players had wasted most of the gaming session arguing about level-appropriate encounters. (Don't worry, the argument continues in this session... and is given some ground to stand on!) … [Read more...]

Diary of a Drow, Day 19

This post is part of a series. To blast to the past, click here. OOC: We last left our adventurers asleep in the room at the bottom of the "prison of the giant". Mar'Kessa had successfully retrieved an orb from the first room. She's not happy about having a Sulatar in the party, but has realized that essentially she has kidnapped him, so there isn't much she can do other than kill him or let him be useful and then kill him. Either way, this is the same gaming session as 16-18, guest … [Read more...]

Diary of a Drow, Days 16-18

This post is part of a series. To blast to the past, click here. OOC: We last left our adventurers after their defeat of a couple warforged and a giant tree-cutting construct. Our gnoll remembered it was Friday this time and we had a special guest - my geek boy was in town and played the part of Oko, the wimpy kobold cleric from the Siberys kobold tribe. … [Read more...]

Drow vs. Drow – suggestions?

Now, you've all known Mar'Kessa for a while. She pretty much hates everyone, even Frank, who had saved her from death. At the moment, she is without family, so has attached herself to the adventuring group so that she can stay alive and accumulate some knowledge and loot while deciding what to do with her life. (When would an elf have a mid-life crisis?) Our new party member is going to be another drow, but not just any drow. He's a Sulatar - the ones that stood by the giant … [Read more...]

Diary of a Drow, Days 13-15

This post is part of a series. To blast to the past, click here. OOC: Same session as Days 8-12. "Magic Fingers" is still MIA, and the adventurers are traveling north to find the source of whatever is destroying the trees in the jungle. Day 13 I think that now we're without Frank, all the "crazy" of our party has migrated to the gnoll. Whatever the dryad said to him, it must have been inspiring. We're only able to sleep when we force him to stop. Day 14 There's less and less game … [Read more...]

Diary of a Drow, Days 8-12

This post is part of a series. To blast to the past, click here. OOC: We last left our adventurers at the red kobold camp, where they just battled three small warforged who had tried to assassinate the leader of the kobold tribe. They meet a naga cleric, who comes in handy during the battle. Of course, real life interfered and our cleric (aka "Magic Fingers") was unable to come to the next session.... … [Read more...]

Diary of a Drow, Days 6 & 7

This post is part of a series. To blast to the past, click here. OOC: We last left our adventurers at the red kobold camp, where they were receiving a hero's welcome. Mar'Kessa had plans to sleep well now that they were back in (relative) civilization. So much for sleeping! I had such high hopes for some quality sleep, but alas, it was not to be that night. Our clearly inebriated gnoll disappeared into a tent with a couple of the female kobolds. Why they tolerated him when he stank … [Read more...]

Taking Suggestions!

Ok geek friends, I need some suggestions about Mar'Kessa's future. As you may know, we have two scouts in our party. Hakim is a full Scout - level 5. Mar'Kessa is 2 Drow / 3 Scout. Both of us currently have Point Blank Shot and Precise Shot as feats. I'm pondering not going the typical ranged fighter feats (Rapid/Many shot)... but wondering what other crazy things Mar'Kessa could learn to do. Keep in mind, she is NOT fond of melee. She's come too close to death and prefers to stay … [Read more...]
