to the east, and here I am,
AlisaA Paladin of a death god. Fights with a flail and shield, and has decent armor.
Brashly confident in his powers, Isaac chose to join an adventuring party, hoping to bring fame and glory to the Yeshiva and, above all, to the thaumatologist's art. He crawls dungeons, the loot secondary to his greater aspirations.

LilliCovered in grey rags, only her face is left uncovered. The shadows accentuate her colorful eyes and if you look closely, maybe you can make out her brown hair which she keeps short.
|Uncredited and I can't find|
DerickA combination doctor and necromancer. He is haunted, for lack of a better word by his great grandfather, a ghost that is upset about the dwindling Dicus family tree. Derick is a talented doctor, naturalist, and magic user in his own right.
SummaryDerick and his entourage arrived from the South-west, and were easily able to open the door from the outside. The undead tried to defeat a fleeing orc who narrowly escapes before Derick and crew attempt to meet up with the party. The Orcs flee northwest. The party finds itself in dire straits as the slimes encroach on them. Lilli, Arron, and Alisa struggle to sort out light and swords until everyone is situated well. A giant slug starts rushing towards the party from the North, but fails to leap over a pit of sewage and critically fails a swim AND HT roll and becomes violently ill. This distracts some of the slimes acting solely on impulse who begin attacking and devouring the thrashing beast. Alisa desperately tries a shield rush at a slime, which critically fails, once again messing with the lighting situation as her light enchantment goes flying with it. Lilli struggling valiantly against fate, hold on to consciousness, flinging shuriken at the giant undead slime to the east, Isaac launches an area affect fire ball which is effective and hurts it significantly more than most blows. Arron decides to follow after Alisa attacking and nearly defeating the slime she attempted to shield rush, protecting her retreat to gather up her shield again. The erupting slimes, after spending several seconds sucking in air and aiming finally began attacking the party from all angles with acid shots, even as the session closes, Isaac is having a hole burnt into his shirt, Alisa has a hole melting in her armor, and Lilli who parried a shot has her arm bracings melting... incidentally they failed to hit Arron. At this point, Derrick and crew meets up with the party.
After Action Report
- What Went Well
- The players mostly showed up very close to on time.
- What didn't go well
- I was told I was going to fast for some parts so I slowed down, and also
- I was told the game ran too slow, for that we devised two solutions:
- For now, the zombie and skelly allies will behave as a swarm
- All players have a one minute time limit to make a turn. If they fail to do anything for a minute, I get to choose what happens, which will likely be all-out defense, aim, or evaluate.
- I forgot that jumping suffers from encumbrance penalties. There are a few situations where jumps should have been more difficult.
