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:
The Saviors of Sandpoint come across a few bodies, some warmer than others, that leads down a hero’s dark past.
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.
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.
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.
After delving into Skull’s Crossing, the Saviors of Sandpoint discovered not only the cause of the malfunctioning dam, but gleaned a hint at who – or what – may be behind the sihedron medallions and sacrifices. They also faced off against an old foe in a conflict with a most unexpected ending!

With Fort Rannick now secure, you’d think things would settle down a bit. You’d think that maybe there’d be some breathing room, some time to take in the sights and enjoy the tranquility of nature and the lands far away from the hustle and bustle of Magnimar.
But you’d be wrong. Dead wrong.
The Saviors of Sandpoint question Dilay, the adopted sister of one of their own, and find out why she took the name Lucrecia and slaughtered the Black Arrows of Fort Rannick.
Also, the unholy offspring of the Loch Ness Monster and a psychic demon comes to Turtleback Ferry… and it’s not there for the farmer’s market.
I really have to get better at posting these things. Or posting at all for that matter.
In our last Rise of the Runelords session, the Saviors of Sandpoint had just clashed with several Kreeg ogres who had set up shop within the walls of Fort Rannick. However, after a quick headcount, they realized that in the midst of the battle two of the ogres had gone missing. The heroes also noticed that the front doors leading outside were now open.
That… can’t be good.
