Our group started playing Kingmaker about a year ago. (Slow, I know, but kids, wives, and pets need attention too.) I'm doing things a little bit different in that I've been posting on Blogger as Dear Pino.
Cane Alexson—Ranger, bumpkin, dogged, determined, and dependable. Travels with his companion, a female direwolf called Sizzles.
Lev Davidowich—A fetchling Sorcerer, natural offspring of the powerful Lebeda family, rabble rouser, and born leader.
Marquand—Inquisitor serving Erastil, and former judge attempting to make up for the years he spent defending a corrupt aristocracy in Brevoy. He is the author of these letters, which are written to his niece, Pino Jacquizz.
Kelm Taslor—An Oracle by divine acclimation.
Piea—Powerful female Barbarian from the border region of Brevoy and the River Kingdoms. Left home with a price on her head that she intends paying back in full.
Our Gamemaster is Juan Franela, proprietor of The Common Room in Bloomington, Indiana.
No spoilers in the synopsis but plenty in the blog.
The Swordlords of Aldori write up a charter allowing our heroes to settle the Green Belt, a piece of the Stolen Lands south of Brevoy. They arrive at Oleg's Trading Post ready for adventure and find it soon enough as bandits in the service of the Stag Lord, kobolds, and a crazy alchemist named Bokken give them what for.
Our heroes meet that rarest of creatures, a lone boggard, and save his life. They then do battle with a powerful bit of lumber before befriending the beautiful Tiressia and her satyr pal Falcoas. Returning to Tuskland they take care of business, fight a werewolf, Piea gets drunk, and Cane misplaces his hand.
Our little group says goodbye to Piea, puts Kelm on a shelf, and welcomes new member—the zen-archer Trask—to join them as they return over the mountains to root out the evil that has eradicated Fort Drelev.
With the threat of war looming our group visits Whiterose Abbey to stop a grave new threat. Marquand tries to find a way to wheedle his way back into little Pino's heart.
Marquand falls in love against a backdrop of war to extermination. Oh, the worship of Erastil and Desna are compared to a woman riding an elk and a man riding a centaur.
