Welcome to the recap of the 15th session of my Eberron campaign, which took place on April 20th, 2010.  (Actually, a tiny portion of this happened at the end of the 14th session, but shhh.) Recently, the PCs had the final page of their mysterious book stolen by Lan Hazal and members of the Emerald Claw in Sharn.  They fought him and his undead minions in the temple of Vol but he was able to complete his portal to Xen'drik and get away with the page. For the next sessions, I'll be running … [Read more...]

Virgin DM Monologues: Lan Hazal and the Last Page

Welcome to the recap of the 14th session of my Eberron campaign, which took place on April 13th, 2010.  The PCs had a very convenient dead body fall right into their path and through his roommate, they learned that the wizard Brinn was researching a very important book and held the final four pages. Unfortunately, other forces wanted these pages, and they were willing to kill for it. In his last days of life, Brinn acted like a man possessed with fear and paranoia. Finally, he walked right … [Read more...]

Virgin DM Monologues: Bodies Fall Out Of The Sky All The Time, Right?

Welcome to the recap of the 13th session of my Eberron campaign, which took place on March 16th, 2010.  Many thanks to Graham for his help writing this particular adventure. The PCs had recently saved renowned opera singer Lady Tyasha D'Phiarlan from an assassination attempt by Dessina Hazal, who was apparently working with other Hazals, or so she said before she died. The adventurers have been pondering the events surrounding Lady Tyasha's attempted assassination and wondering if Dessina's … [Read more...]

Virgin DM Monologues: A Night At the Sharn Opera

Welcome to the recap of the 12th session of my Eberron campaign, which took place on February 23rd, 2010.  This adventure is something I wrote myself, so be kind! As the title of the series implies, I am a new DM... The PCs had defeated Dharvek and brought his sword back to claim their reward. However, surveillance target Dessina Hazal proved to be a bit more slippery. Box Text In the last week, you've taken shifts following Dessina around the city. Each morning, she eats a pastry at … [Read more...]

Virgin DM Monologues: A Tale of Two Suspects and Five Unlikely Pirates

Welcome to the recap of the 11th session of my Eberron campaign, which took place on Tuesday, February 16, 2010. Our adventurers recently stalked the Starlight & Shadows wizards and found out they weren't enemies after all - and in fact, they were all attacked by Professor Tevors and his evil minions. The past few weeks have been busy at Globe Information Agency, but not the kind of busy that epic ballads are written about, to say the least. Beatdown has been upset at the lack of killing … [Read more...]

Virgin DM Monologues: No Teleporting Rats Here!

Welcome to the recap of the tenth session of my Eberron campaign, which took place on Tuesday, January 19, 2010. Our adventurers recently celebrated the festival of Brightblade in the city of Sharn and took prizes in a fighting contest, an archery competition, and the ultimate challenge (much to the chagrin of the Starlight & Shadows wizards and their friends, who were eliminated in round 2.) I had a feeling the PCs would want to track down the Starlight & Shadows wizards and get to … [Read more...]

Welcome to the recap of the ninth session of my Eberron campaign, which took place on Tuesday, January 12, 2010. Our adventurers recently found themselves mocked by the Starlight & Shadows wizards, attacked by chairs, and ambushed by drakes in a furniture store. On the bright side, they realized their little book had some big powers and got a great deal on some magical home goods from grateful store owner Finneus Tribble. A week later was the festival of Brightblade. In fact, this is … [Read more...]

Virgin DM Monologues: Next Day Delivery, Haul Your Old One Away

Welcome to the recap of the seventh session of my Eberron game, which took place on Tuesday, January 5, 2010. To recap, our adventurers had recently solved the mystery of the Arcane Academy of the Esoteric Order of Aureon, killing what was possibly a rakshasa that was disguised as a professor in order to infiltrate the campus.  To thank the adventurers, the headmaster offered them a week of free training on the campus in addition to the payment they'd receive through Globe. Evan had no … [Read more...]

This is the second half of the modified version of  Danger at White Lotus Academy by Peter Schaefer. In the previous session, the adventurers were sent to the Arcane Academy of the Esoteric Order of Aureon to investigate some weird goings-on... and sure enough, strange things were happening at the Academy. Evan meets up with the party, having been working with Kava's people to … [Read more...]
