The Thousand Lands S01E00

Character Gen/Setting Discussion

For those of you who aren’t aware, I’ve recently started running a campaign using the excellent B/X Essentials by Necrotic Gnome.  The game takes place as people slowly begin to emerge from the safety of the magically protected Last City to explore a world ravaged by a sorcerous war.

If you want more details about the campaign you can check out the Obsidian portal site here:

Session 0 is where we take a leisurely stroll through character gen and also discuss some of the setting issues, it’s available on Twitch, Youtube and in audio format on my podcast:

An uncut version of the character generation session (also including the first adventure) is available on Twitch:

Rose of Westhaven – Season 2

For the second season of our Rose of Westhaven Midderlands campaign we decided to re-focus the game and settled on the idea of a group of church sponsored monster hunters. The game timeline has moved forward ten years, there is a new King on the throne and–against a resurgence of pagan cults and practices–the Church of Westhaven sponsors hunters to try and restore order to the Havenlands.
Introduction to the game and the characters.
A group of church hunters visit the village of Otterdale drawn by legends of old ruins and a strange sickness.
In which the hunter venture into the ruins buried on the southern slopes of the valley.
Our heroes relax after their recent trials, carousing in the village of Otterdale.

In these sessions we were running through the adventure Behind the Walls produced by Glynn Seal of Monkeyblood Design and myself, the adventure will be available shortly in PDF and softcover formats. Many thanks to Glynn–not only for coming up with the Midderlands (the setting of my campaign) and for his excellent work on the adventure but also–for allowing me to use his great maps in this session.

Rose of Westhaven

Season 1

We’ve recently wrapped up season one of our Lamentations of the Flame Princess Midderlands Campaign, as of the time of writing we’ve already started season two, which has seen the timeline move forward by ten years and a switch to the For Coin & Blood rule set.

Season One charts the rise and fall of the Locke Adventuring Company,

During their adventures they made allies among the people of Porthcrawl, enemies of many fierce creatures, many friends were lost along the way, but they never stopped striving to push forward against adversity in the spirit of their deceased namesake Edwin Locke.

Over twenty sessions chart the rise and fall of the Locke Adventuring Company, these are all available to watch on Youtube or Twitch.
