  • Breakfast at Gorloris'

    A brief spot of retconning: there are many people about, beginning to party in anticipation of Banfey. We approach the guards by the entrance to Gorloris’ residence to ask for an audience with Gorloris. Remi explains that it’s a matter of great …

  • BACK IN TIME HOLY SHIT

    After we orient ourselves a little, the party heads over to the administration office. Yannic privately looks through his belongings and discovers that he is only wearing one earring, his mom is still in the sapphire Kean gave him in the other timeline, …

  • To the Tower Again and Back

    We’re still in the Step Back Inn, discussing what to do next. Remi remembers that his dad is still around in Wheatfield in this timeline, and at the very least, he wants to ensure any siblings he might have are safe from Theminor. The rest of us endorse …

  • Finding Bob

    To keep the peace in the Gorlorian Empire, it is necessary to continually banish the now extraplanar entities (e.g. fey, demons, celestials, fiends, etc.) that occasionally slip through the cracks/tears between the planes. If things stay in the material …

  • Goblin Cave

    The party heads into the cave, leaving Remi to guard the entrance. Seru leads the party, following a stream that runs through the cave. The sounds of snarling can be heard from the top of some stairs to the right of them as they continue to follow the …

  • Hello Hyena-people

    So we backtracked a little bit, picking up with the seven of us (the banishing squad, the cheeky campers (Kaiva and Seru), and Bob) walking back to Bob’s house. Betha recapped the events of last week’s battle for Remi, who was guarding the cave. We also …

  • The Gift of Social Responsibility

    Curtain went up on Bob making a valiant but unsuccessful attempt to attack Kaiva; Seru managed to yank him away long enough for them to explain the situation. Bob is Displeased but tells them that the bottle contains Soul Fire, which is very dangerous, …

  • The First True Frog Party

    Kaiva and Remi, accompanying Bob, arrive at the bar. After some idle chit-chat, the maid (from way back when, who Seru and Kaiva had encountered while trying to relocate their spooky-eyed, green-bottle-wanting mysterious patron) appears. Kaiva fobs her …

  • The Last Bit Before Boom-Boom Day

    So last week picked up just after Betha decided to go off to a mysterious undisclosed location with an unknown (to anyone else) fey. Kaiva, having witnessed this, runs inside the tavern to inform everyone (sans Seru, who is outside with Tana) of Betha’s …

  • Those Certainly Are Some Life Choices We Keep Making

    As Banfey dawns, the group prepares by ransacking Bob’s house for healing potions, arrows, and other stuff that may be useful. As dawn hits (the sky ominously green), the Bracers of Social Responsibility clamp down on Kaiva’s wrists in an even more …

  • Our Intrepid Adventurers Take The Damned Day Off

    Everyone gathers upstairs, where Remi is still seizing/whatever mystical thing is happening to him (hint: it’s necromancy) is still going on. Eventually it wears off, and he wakes up, achy but otherwise intact. Fen and Kaiva go in search of breakfast, …

  • The Day After The Night Before

    Picking up at sunset on Banfey, the group sets about stripping Bob’s house for all they can find (but not the Soul Fire). Betha finds another Mysterious HiltTM, Remi searches for spell components, and Fen finds another ring and an Ice Arrow. Yannic sets …

  • What We Have Here Is A Failure To Communicate

    The first failure of communication happens when our intrepid party realizes that they can’t see or hear anyone. After a rousing game of Musical Roll20, the party switches to Skype and carry on. So the substance in the middle of the room, the group soon …

  • Zombies Run

    We pick up with our band of misfit toys as they embark on their road trip. The heat has died down in the Tower (although it’s still very, very toasty) as they make their way downstairs, Morthred piggybacking on Kaiva, Ondelin gazing lovingly at Remi. …

  • (I Always Feel Like) Some Froggy's Watching Me

    Curtain opens on a straggling group of heroes walking down a cliff face away from a zombie horde. Off in the distance, Floy looks the same as it ever was, just with fewer people and more corpses (people and cows). Off in the farther distance to the …

  • "You don't need pants at the end of the world!"

    (this one got long, guys, but in fairness to me, a lot of ridiculousness happened. the title was shouted by Fen in all seriousness at one stage, which should reinforce my point.) So as not to leave you in suspense – curtains up on the frog and Fen …

  • The Great Sol'Soran Geography Quiz

    When we last left our heroes, they were blinking awake after Remi woke them all up (with the exception of Morthred, who I imagine could sleep through anything after several hundred years in a reverse Tell-Tale Heart situation). There are two general …

  • CSI Sol'Sora

    Imagine, if you will, a merry band of adventurers gathered around a piece of paper, desperately trying to recall everywhere they’ve been in their lives and realizing, with a slow, mounting horror, that they cannot remember. Imagine then a gentle wind …

  • Practical Uses for Teleportation

    You know that bit in Gladiator where Russell Crowe walks through the wheatfield, running his hand through it and looking Masculinely Contemplative? That’s where we start, only instead of Manful Crowe, we’re a bedraggled group of paranoid apocalypse …

  • Tree's Gonna Hit Ya

    There is a gazebo-looking structure with a domed top in the distance. As several members of our party are utterly convinced that we must find safety this exact instant, we head for it. Halfway there, Betha goes stealth, because she is a tiny gnome in a …

  • Nerd Out In The Wheat Field

    The bedraggled forest crew makes it back to the gazebo! Yannic and Kean also make it back to the gazebo, and promptly nap. Kaiva wakes Seru up, but can’t get her out from under the bench, because the world is a terrifying place for a few more hours. …

  • We're Getting Aesoped

    After the most uneventful night of watches we’ve ever had, it’s time to set off for the trial. Kean wakes everyone up at 4am, because as some of the party knows, the mountains tend to have big murderous storms that happen in the afternoon, so the sooner …

  • One Month After Boom Boom Day

    The group wakes up, partakes of some nourishment, and then it’s on to the next room! This one’s Ondelin’s, and it starts with the party (save Ondy) in a box, and Ondy standing in the middle of a massive courtroom, surrounded by winged peers, and facing a …

  • Twenty-Eight Cabbages Later

    The party books it out of the study as soon as the curtain goes up. It’s roughly 6pm the next evening, and Fen has a huge stack of cabbages she’s counting. She has 28 cabbages. Twenty-eight cabbages. That’s as many as four sevens, and that’s terrible. So …

  • Step Two - Put Your Kean In That Box

    The group decides that they’re good to keep carrying on without a rest, since Betha’s room caused mainly mental trauma and no one needs too much healing. Onward! Into the same room as before, but with a pedestal in the middle, and a shiny coin sitting on …

  • Pants Off In Front of a Fire

    At sunrise (5:45am), we walk. Through wheat. For hours. We’re not alone, though! There’s a stream of geckos walking parallel to us in the wheat. Eventually, Fen peels off to go to the bathroom. And doesn’t come back. For an hour. Also there’s smoke. …

  • Bread In This Trying Time

    The watches in the tavern pass relatively uneventfully, aside from Lone Wolf making plays for Kaiva’s Planar Blade. Betha feels a magical presence watching them, but other than that, nothing happens. At dawn, a huge column of red light beams down and …

  • Hello! We Have...Friend!

    We open on Fen doing a kegstand, with an assist from Kaiva. The shindig continues on in that vein, with Remi and Yannic drinking and Kaiva doing acrobatics. However, before anyone invents the game of Spin the Bottle, Remi hears a warping noise from …

  • The Three Genders Are Male, Female, And Dead

    The watches pass relatively uneventfully, the only peaceful part of the next - well. You’ll see. Lone Wolf is wandering about town, poking at the brush and looking for her weapon. At dawn, the now-familiar warping noise hits again, and there’s a new note …

  • Other Than The Death Threats, It's Been Fine

    The food is getting cleared away, y'all. It's time to get buckwild. In a stunning feat of memory, Remi realizes that he's sen Milktoast before, and not just in the Lady of Learning's trial. Apparently "Eric Bridger," aka Milktoast, has been a servant …

  • Dream Works

    Good morning starshines! The earth says hello! Especially to Kaiva and Fen who are Hung Over when everyone wakes up. Drink responsibly, kids. Kean comes down and starts making breakfast. A lot of breakfast. Like, an insane amount of breakfast. He enlists …

  • Welcome to the Safetydome

    Betha returns at sundown, the familiar whooshing sound waking us from our AU dream. It's been two days for her, doing paperwork in the Feywild because Morthred's gone missing and the line of succession needs updating. We can all remember the dream, and …

  • Make a Floor Check

    When we last left the scene, Kean and Yannic were in a stalemate in the kitchen, Yannic glowering silently in the corner, Kean cooking frantically at the stove. Remi turns up his cheer to 11 and tries to help. It goes nowhere, and Yannic leaves to go sit …

  • The Five Stages of Grief

    Lone Dragon figures out that Seru has figured out that she's not a pale excitable elf woman, but in fact an actual, literal dragon. She throws up a Wind Wall and runs out of the house. Seru teleports out after her. LD throws up a Zone of Truth around …

  • Daddy (Clothing) Issues

    As the party gathers to consider who they just killed and what the hell to do now, Remi and Ondelin begin an intense, serious-looking conversation, that gets cut off by the Therris ring spitting out cobwebs and covering Remi in them, rendering him …

  • Battle Royale

    Here we go. We can tell we're not in our usual plane by the sky. It looks like an oil spill, random colors across black, and the light comes from a bunch of temporary exploding suns. The walls are 50ft tall, and there are towers and an enclosed …

  • Questionably Effective Flowcharting

    We pick up at sundown (roughly 8:30pm) at the teleportation circle, exactly where we were when Andraki snatched us. Seru bolts immediately, disappearing into the woods; ten minutes later, Tiny appears with letters in his mouth, addressed to each member of …

  • Draw a Dick on a Tree

    We tentatively lift up the edge of the curtain, eyes half-closed, to see that nope, we're still in that hella sad moment, Remi and Yannic cuddling while Yannic's face leaks all over the place. While this is going on, Fen re-summons Lester and stores him …

  • Teleportation Maintenance

    Finally, we arrive at the promised time: Betha calls Sivoreen. Sivoreen, probably still nursing a few bruises from her last visit, appears on the edge of town, and agrees to talk with Kean about what potions might be needed. Yannic, meanwhile, asks Kean …

  • Gathering and Mercury and Stuff

    While Ulita stands guard, Fen’s mind is transported to another place, where the tree she’s touching still stands, and her old mentor is there too. It turns out Fen needs to prove that she can actually do what she promised the tree she would: protect the …

  • The Therris Vault "Heist"

    Fen, who’s just emerged from the tree, uses her tree monster form to clear the teleportation circle in the courtyard. A half orc lady protests, and explains that they’ve been using the rubble to try to keep the green fire (Soulfire) from coming through …

  • The Infuriating Realities of a "Long Rest"

    Everyone settles in for a long rest, and the circlet-wearing people are asked to rest as well. In the process of asking Kean to get rest, Yannic critfails his intelligence save, and falls limply to the ground, twitching in extreme pain. Some healing helps …

  • The Gathering Core

    We head down into the maintenance tunnels, following the stripe for the central control hub. Half an hour in, we feel the floor fall out from under us, by several feet. We pick up our pace, and 10 minutes after the quake, we begin to hear a regular thwomp …

  • Froggy Fears Confirmed

    When we arrive yet again in Floy, we see a group of four fancily dressed Banishers using the water-powered elevator to get to Upper Floy. One of the four spots us and makes grabby hand motions towards us before the apparent leader hauls him back onto the …

  • Bitchslapped by a God

    There are a whole lot of Andraki’s folk outside: hyenas, hyenapeople, and a large white once-a-hyena creature that has a scorpion tail and dripping pointy teeth. The hyenapeople batter at the door of the tower, to no avail. The party tries to convince …

  • Time Bites Back

    While Fen sleeps amongst the leaves near Bob’s house, the rest of the party discusses visiting Hell so that Yannic can get his right hand back. They wait several hours, and at midnight, a bat-winged creature delivers a box containing a gatestone. The …

  • Chasing Emit

    When the party regroups after shopping, Remi gifts Yannic with a pair of earrings to replace his missing earring. The group look for Sobren and Nemit and find Sobren and the green dragonborn Banisher directing traffic away from the teleportation hub. …

  • We Actually Communicate???

    Fen wakes up from her tile-induced slumber, and we fill her in on what’s happening. We run in Jade’s tracks, hoping to stop her from killing Emit, and we arrive just as a slight time shimmer is fading midair. Betha sticks her hand into it briefly, but …

  • Times and Trials

    We find ourselves in a large dark cavern filled mostly by a big dark lake. There are no obvious exits or entrances, and we have no recollection of how we got here. A voice speaks in our minds, inviting us to forget our worries by stepping into the lake. …

  • Procrastination

    When we return to our own bodies, we’re still on our way to Wheatfield via Floy. Ondelin watches us with much confusion as we discuss what we’ve just experienced. Kaiva is confused that we didn’t ride dinosaurs like she did. The place from which Fen …

  • Locations, Hours, and Book Drops

    While Yannic goes home to find his student ID, Betha hangs on to the book of mythology on Keanvari and Andraki and does some more research. She maps some teleportation circles she thinks might be useful and finds a book of mythology on the time god(s). …

  • Back to the Future

    The party retraces Kaiva’s steps back to the professor’s office where she and Remi parted ways, and Fen kicks the door in. Remi apologizes for his friends’ behavior and takes his leave. In the library, we check out our six books. Betha asks Remi about …

  • Safety Cave, Party Cave

    Fen and Yannic settle in for a watch, and a few sounds catch Fen's notice: a slight vibration in the cave and Remi making a lot of noise in Ondelin's room. Fen considers whether or not Remi is dying and whether or not she might be a dolphin or bat. …

  • Cage Fight

    Standing in the center of Andraki’s cage, Nemit tells us we don’t have to fight him - all we’d have to do is swear we’ll stay in this plane. From the other side of the shimmery steel bars of the cage, Andraki watches impassively. We try to talk to Nemit …

  • Boulder vs. Frog

    While the twins argue, Betha finishes making two vials of Swift Step Draught and seventeen-year old Yannic congratulates Remi on his engagement. A few hours into the argument, Andra shouts for Ondelin, and half an hour later, he comes out looking …

  • I Guess You Gotta Cry Sometimes

    Kaiva and Betha go looking for the others in the rain, so they all can set up watches and rest. Betha finds Yannic crying in a ruin nearby, and Kaiva lends Andra her spider cloak before giving up on finding Fen. On the way back from their walk in the …

  • Maybe You Should Not Do Those Things

    Remi wants to ask Andra about the Hell Heist, which Betha allows. She thinks it’s a terrible plan but at this point is resigned to the group’s stupidity. ~Andra’s Hell Advice~ 1) Devils can see through magic darkness 2) 10 VERY good guards 3 …

  • cannibal cave exploration

    The game opens with the party standing in front of entrance to cannibal cave, which is a huge iron slab in the cliff face, 2 feet thick. It also has abjuration wards on it. After debating how to get in, Remi remembers his planar blade, wakes it up, and …

  • Kaiva and Keanvari Enter a Contract

    Once upon a 6am, Remi and Yannic and Betha have to figure out what to do with the muzzled little black bird in a cage that is probably Onrubia. This is a problem for many, many reasons, both politically and morally. DEBATE ABOUNDS (after the twins are …

  • Accidentally Arborea

    The game begins with us hand waving a ridiculous amount of teleporting as Dallinon's population is sent to Wheatfield. Sivoreen sends a panic attack letter begging Betha to evacuate to Arborea before noon's expected disaster, but the party (well, mostly …
