Our second session of the Greyhawk game on Friday night, and I think it went pretty well. At least, Martin was surprised to discover that it was almost 11:30 pm when I decided to call it a night… that’s either a sign that he was enjoying it, or his time sense is really, really bad…
We got in 3-1/2 combats. The big fight was against a bunch of goblins, after the PCs chased a couple of goblins (the 1/2 combat) down the hallways. Lots of lesser goblins died, but the Goblin Underboss proved rather hard for everyone to kill. Rich’s fighter still quite hasn’t got the hang of Fighter’s Challenge – I really need to write that article – and so the Underboss shifted around a lot more than he should have, mostly chasing Peggy’s wizard.
I’ve decided to make the gods a lot more important in this campaign, and Peggy destroying an altar to the gods of Chaos (probably evil) meant she got cursed, and with no cleric in the group… What was the curse? She lost all her healing surges and couldn’t heal!
The good thing about that was it forced to her go to a church. With all the information I’d been setting up on the churches in Greyhawk, she chose Rao for the remove curse. That has also led into a quest, which has brought the PCs into the Gary Gygax “Mouths of Madness” section. Oh, and the thieves’ guild is pressuring Martin’s dwarf rogue as well to do jobs for them.
I’m enjoying this campaign. More Keep on the Shadowfell tomorrow!
