Rise of the Runelords – Episode 46

No sympathy for the injured Titus Scarnetti.

A dictator has been slain. The town of Sandpoint has been saved. Now, the Saviors of Sandpoint have to pick up the pieces while laying one of their own to rest. All that and more in Rise of the Runelords Episode 46 – Picking up the Pieces.

Dungeons and Dragons – Homebrew Edition

Roleplaying games can get pretty busted, pretty quickly. Sometimes you need to put boundaries when players decide to put together their characters. The good folks over at Mann Shorts bravely show what happens when you open those homebrew gates to players.

Rise of the Runelords – Episode 45

Woah Woah Woah, you might be saying to yourself. Yes, all three of you who read my blog (Editor’s Note – I appreciate you). Aren’t you skipping a few episodes? (Editor here again – should these be sessions rather than episodes? Chapters maybe?)

To answer your question, yes. Yes, I am. I had wanted to keep a few in the tank so I could have somewhat constant content on here. But as you can see by the gap between posts, that is sooooo not the case. Therefore, rather than being clever, I’m being current.

However, to maintain some degree of consistency let’s touch on a few things and get you up to speed. Here’s the Rise of the Runelords recap for Episode Sessions Chapters 41-44:

Episode 41 – Following the Trail of Blood

The Saviors of Sandpoint come across a few bodies, some warmer than others, that leads down a hero’s dark past.

Episode 42 – Half-Brotherly Love

The Saviors of Sandpoint return home, only to find that some old foes don’t know when to stay away.

Just when they thought it was safe to get a night’s rest, the Saviors of Sandpoint find that they don’t need to go looking for trouble. Trouble will find them.

Episode 44 – Sandpoint Invasion Part Two

If you thought stone giants were bad, try dealing with an ancient clockwork dragon running a simple two-step program:

Step 1: Destroy Everything.

Step 2: If everything is not destroyed, repeat Step 1.

With that all out of the way, brace yourself for Rise of the Runelords Episode 45 – Death to Heroes and Villains!

The Saviors of Sandpoint faced stone giants, dire bears, and robot dragons. But to save their town, they will have to defeat a kingdom-destroying villain from a hero’s past. To do that, they’ll have to give everything.

Spoilers: That’s just what one of the heroes does.

Having the Right Mini

I’ve redesigned encounters to fit a cool mini that I happened to pick up. But what if you don’t have the right mini for a session? Jacob from XP to Level 3 has ideas (but some of them take a long time to paint).

Once the dust settled, the Saviors of Sandpoint returned to Fort Rannick to interrogate the leader of the ogre clan that had tried to wipe out the town of Turtleback Ferry. However, not all business had been tied up and one grudge came back to settle the score.
