Finally the party reach the large village of Balthos on the shore of Lake Balthos. They find the settlement is under the control of the Lost Spears bandit clan. In the morning, the Wolf Guard arrive from Hommel looking for the Forsaken. They are aware the Forsaken stole crates of their crossbows. Suddenly the Wolf Guard reveal they are werewolves!

Dragonfly – Episode 18/ Flying on the bronze dragon named Dragonfly, the Forsaken head east away from the destruction. The village of Laresh and a whole corner of the Southern Territories had been destroyed by the witch king. A gray fog and darkness are spreading across the ground far below the dragon.
After a brief battle with some shadow birds, a blue dragon bursts from the clouds and attacks. The party urge their dragon to fly for the coast and their smugglers’ den. However, the blue dragon keeps pace and kills Will and Hammish. Finally the heroes reach the coast and the battle continues on board their ship.

Later, the party return to the village of Kay and urge the villagers to come with them and flee the oncoming darkness. Turmoil erupts in the local inn between a drunken high elf and some hill dwarves. Surprisingly, the heroes diffuse the situation. On the way out of their den, the party come face to face with a carrion crawler and then a zombie beholder.

Then the Forsaken led the ragtag group of Kay villagers onto the Dragonfly. The ship sailed east, heading away from the darkness consuming the Southern Territories.

Dragonfly – Episode 17/ The party began their adventures in the seaside village of Laresh. They had just killed the witch Dax and followed strange tracks into a nearby well.
After exploring the sewers for a while, the party encountered a black pudding. The fight was endless as the heroes didn’t know how to deal with the ooze. Later they discovered huge cauldrons and realized someone was brewing a powerful spell. Eventually the party found Bathilda the witch was in the sewers. They fought the witch bravely but she managed to escape. To their surprise the adventurers found a kraken priest tied up in the witch’s chamber. After exiting the sewers the party found members of Captain Kale’s Pirates and the Rock Ghosts bandit clan boarding a ghost ship.

Then massive waves began to pound the coast and everyone knew the kraken was coming. The Forsaken alerted the guards and saved hundreds of commoners. They found they had a way to escape the sea creature and got onto a friendly bronze dragon. Then the enormous monster arrived. As the visions had shown, the witch king was riding the kraken. But then the unexpected happened…

Seveer unleashed a powerful destructive spell that destroyed Laresh and most of the coast. A dark fog and sickness began to race across the land towards the east. Our heroes flew away on the bronze dragon looking back at the aftermath of the witch king’s spell. They stared at each other in a stunned silence….

Funded! Kickstarter to create 6 5E adventures and an NPC handbook. Thank you backers!

Less than two weeks left! We are going to publish six 5E adventures and the Hirelings and Henchmen handbook. The adventures are part of a series based in the World of Myrr (MEER) 5E campaign setting. Volume One took the characters to 13th level. These adventures will be high level adventures, all the way to 20th level. However, they can be played as standalone adventures as well. The Hirelings and Henchmen handbook will be at least 100 pages long, filled with unique NPCs and tables to create NPCs. We also have a new world map showing all of Myrr and other rewards as well.

The adventures are based on sessions from our Sunday night ‘West of the Wood’ gaming group. We always write up our sessions afterwards so the process of creating the modules is already under way. There will be six adventures in three modules for 4-5 characters. Each module should be about 50-60 pages long. Here are summaries of the adventures:

A11 The City of Magic/A12 Citadel of Aramoor (Character Levels 15-16)

The players escape the city of Bladen on the vampires’ warship and head north. They make their way to the city of Nox, known as the city of Magic. Once there, they will continue to deal with the evil Alliance and visit the mysterious Citadel of Aramoor. Agents of the Alliance are everywhere and the party must be prepared for anything.

Monsters include: anti-paladins, evil bards, gargoyles, hobgoblins, hydras, vampires, vampire spawn, and wizards.

A13 Into the Tunnels/A14 The Thunder Halls (Character Levels 17-18)

To avoid the deadly tarrasque, the heroes decide on an alternate route to reach the giants’ enclave. A hidden trove of vampire-fighting weapons were hidden in the Thunder Halls during the Dark Times. However, the journey to the giants’ halls is still a dangerous one! An old school dungeon crawl makes up a large portion of this module.

Monsters include: cloakers, dragons, elementals, giants, golems, ogres, orcs, rocs, ropers, and xorn.

A15 The Hell Gate/A16 Into the Fire (Character Levels 19-20)

The true leaders of the Alliance are the devils. Our heroes must travel to the Hell Gate in the far north. The only way to close the gate is to travel into hell and close it from the other side! Once there, the party must find a way back home and deal with a city full of devils. Will the continent of Myrr be saved? Or will the Alliance succeed in bringing an army of devils through the gate?

Monsters include:devils (barbed devils, chain devils, horned devils, pit fiends, etc.), dragons, invisible stalkers, succubi, and vampires.

A game master can never have enough NPCs! This 100+ page book will contain about 180 NPCs. There will be two main sections; one for hirelings and one for henchmen. Detailed stat blocks for each character will be included. We’ll also have art throughout the book. All of these characters could also be used as pre-generated PCs. Finally, we’ll include several tables for you to create your own NPCs. (We’ll look at doing a poll to name it ‘Hirelings and Henchmen’ or ‘Henchmen and Hirelings’)
