Meet Hecate Iriosal

A new campaign means a new character! I mentioned in my last ramble about the new Out of the Abyss game my group are starting tomorrow that I would introduce you to my newest character. Well, here she is in all her glory!  Hecate by the talented Mimmikko Hecate Iriosal is a water genasi druid. Like Daphne... Continue Reading →

Into the Unknown, Out of the Abyss

When one campaign ends, another one will begin.  After about a year or so of playing Curse of Strahd, we are swapping Barovia for the Underdark. Both are frankly dark and depressing places, with potential death a constant companion. My group really needs to play a more light-hearted campaign soon, as this is a worrying pattern.  I...

Our Season Finale of Curse of Strahd

After over a year's worth of suffering, angst and all-around bad times for our characters, our Curse of Strahd campaign had its season finale last Sunday. In short, we decided to move on to another campaign for a while, leaving Curse of Strahd on a cliffhanger we will return to at a later date.  Oh man, it's been a... Continue Reading →

Stranger Things Read-A-Like

I am still recovering from Season 4 of Stranger Things. That ending, ouch.  I might be a bit late since it stopped airing a while ago but I needed time to heal. Yeah, still not 100% there, but the show must go on. My goto curse for a broken heart? Reading to fill the void.  So,... Continue Reading →

Dungeons and Dragons 2023: What Do We Know?

With Stranger Things, Critical Role and The Adventure Zone catapulting D&D into the mainstream, I guess it should not come as a surprise that Hollywood would decide to cash in. Considering how the previous movies about the game, namely Mazes and Monsters and Dark Dungeons, portrayed the game as evil and fed into the satanic panic, maybe this film can be seen as an...

Strahdaversary

Today's ramble is just a bit on the short side, as I wanted to share a little milestone with you guys. Last Sunday, my D&D group celebrated our "Strahdaversary". We have been playing our Curse of Strahd campaign for a year now. Time flies when you are fighting for survival in brutal Barovia. So far, our kill... Continue Reading →

Meet Daphne Lethe

Last Monday's session was intense. The session started with Gunner, the only confirmed survivor, waking up after the battle. He got pulled away from the fray by an NPC. Realising the situation, he was keen to run back down to where he last saw his friends and get them to safety. Provided, of course, that... Continue Reading →

Page Turner: Homeland

I might have found my new favourite fantasy series. As an avid Dungeons and Dragons player, I like playing video game adaptations of the beloved TTRPG. My current favourite is Dungeons & Dragons: Dark Alliance. From the second I hit play, I fell in love with the playable characters, but in particular a certain Drow Rogue by the...

Dungeons and Dragons Withdrawal

Today marks the fourth consecutive session of D&D that I have missed. While this doesn't sound like much, I am having severe withdrawal. It is almost funny how much this is affecting me. Me, almost every day I know that it sounds like I am overdramatic. In fairness, from a certain point of view, I... Continue Reading →
