Sorry about the delay in returning. Stuff had piled up while I was on vacation that had to be taken care of. Hope everyone is doing well. Now back to the show!

Yaaaay. Hope it was great trip

Spent 50XP on +2 Advances in Strength, banked the rest for buying of Talents.

@DM - Mulling Udo's next Short Term Ambition... am thinking one of these two:

- Seek out and join the Cult of Morr
- Follow the portents to the Cult of Morr

Nice. Both sound good.. I'd say cult is the best but maybe you need portents first

I'll be on vacation this Friday evening.

It will be a very busy vacation, as I have a job interview next week, and I'm moving home the week after.

I might be a few days without internet, but I guess I'll be back at the end of the month. Will try to post when I can.

Grand Lodge

I have effectively disappeared for a few days, long story short, some insanely long days and a need to recover SOME sleep. Will catch up today over the next few hours.

I feel you - took me 2 weeks+ to get over C19. Never worse than a flu, but just felt like I'd repeatedly been hit by a truck.

Aaaand I'm back. Sorry for the slight delay, but I thought it was a good idea to eat spoiled food upon my return, thereby gifting myself to mild food poisoning. All better now, thankfully!

Things have slowed here... which is a good thing, Between a working holiday... emphasis on "working" and a nasty flu I'm struggling atm. Apologies if I'm slow to post the next few days.


I'm afraid we might have lost some players along the way.. Who is still there, and is still wanting to play?

Here but it's a long time between drinks so to speak. Is this the likely pacing moving forward because I am a bit confused.


Female Human (Reiklander) Bawd (Hustler), WS 30, BS 27, S 25, T 34, Ag 38, Dex 37, Int 32, WP 35, Fel 38, Wounds 11/11

I am also still here but am also confused.


So, lets have a pause to resume what you know:

The Dullahan is said to have survived, and is rumored to be somewhere in town, even if you haven't found or seen him. You found a murdered man in an alley, and broken branches from a nearby tree, as if someone has climbed on the tree to get over the town wooden walls.

A woman said she saw the Dullahan in a barn, but it was a red herring from a desperate, abused woman who hoped fear would overcome your common senses. Townfolks are scared, and maybe other false alarm will happen again;. or maybe next time it will truly be the Dullahan. As temporary members of the guards, it will be your duty to protect Hallt and its citizens.

The stonemason, among others, seems to be linked to the Reeve, but maybe he's part of the city council or something like that. There was a group meeting in another barn, but Gottfried hasn't managed to get more informations, despite his best efforts. You know the lawyer you meet in the coach while coming to Hallt was in contact with the Reeve.

Maybe the local church have some clues or informations about the Dullahan. The priest is doing whatever he can to calm the scared faithfull.

The town oddness seems to accelerate, increasing the overall gloom and doom. But no one in the town seems to care or even be aware of the little changes.

Hope this will help!

For my part is the confusion over pace of game and if we as players need to be pushing/rolling more.

Thanks for the update!


Some XP:

For everyone in the barn (Konrad, Brunhilde,Udo, Imrik, Felver) 10 XP

For Gottfried spying 20 XP

For Felver only 20 XP for the fight itself, +50 Xp for short term ambition

I have a medical emergency in the family so I'm gonna need a day or two.


no problem, take care of your loved ones! Real life first!


So, what is your plan?

I tried to give you some more context, some backstory with the priest, and some stuff to help (bigger weapon, some healing potions) within the temple ressources.

Things will happen, but how bad will be the things happening depends on you

Grand Lodge

Likely patrol. We're likely a bit lost.

Put yourself in our shoes. Two days ago we're headed to our destination before getting into a fight with some sort of undead demon that we miraculously escape from. We've little money or resources but somehow get to town.

Yesterday we pretty much got our only night of rest we could expect in town because our resources are even slimmer.

Today we get hired by the Baliff, prospect of a meal and a room a day. All we have to do is sorta... keep everything peaceful.

Sounds great. Some breathing room.

Then it seems like the Baliff and town leaders MIGHT be dodgy... are we gonna be the fall guys? Who knows. What I do know is leaving isn't an option.

Then the village priest offers real concrete aid. At this point he's the only guy I trust because he's invested in us. He also does NOT make me feel much better about our new boss.

Then to top it all off? One of the locals is dead... maaaaaybe it was a fair fight, maybe it wasn't. Who knows what the rest of the population thinks but I'm betting he's got some friends who aren't gonna be happy.

Knocking on doors at this moment and interviewing strangers isn't gonna sit right until, for me at any rate, I find my feet.

BUT

The good bit is this adventure may never let me find my feet. I'm okay with that :)

Two of the party have said let's go on patrol. Drive us on the plot train for a while. After decades of DMing I've found when the players lose their way, either put them back on the story with some reveals that helps them to refocus or have them put into a crisis... which then reveals a plot point or two to help them refocus,


THat's what I tried to do with the priest informations, without revealing the whole thing. ;-)

Merry Xmas to all!

Taking a few days off, as everyone I guess, to enjoy family time.

Unfortunatly, it seems we only have 3 players out of 6... Shall wwe stop or continue?

God Yule to you too DM LE.

My heart says continue, my head suggests the death knell may be ringing.

Am game to carry on but with only 3 we may struggle for traction - particularly this time of year when games grind to a halt at the best of times.


I agree, 3 players won't be enough for the challenges to come.

I wondered what to do, as it doesn't seem likely our missing members come back.

We can either stop here (and maybe it was my fault, maybe I wasn't active or good enough a GM), or we can pause the game while I try to recruit 2-3 new players just for the end of the adventure, which might use a few weeks till the players and characters are ready.

what do you think?

Grand Lodge

Pause, regroup, refocus and attack.

That said, and I hope you won't take this badly but I find the longest lasting games are when the DM touches the game (or discussion thread) every 1-2 days. It's not always possible but if that goal is mostly achieved things tend to flow a bit easier.

It's not a 100% rule... stuff happens, as does life.

I've enjoyed this. More than happy to continue...but at the same time, I think that going out in a blaze of glory is also very WFRP. I, for one, would much rather hit the final fight with 3 of us and die horribly than to just walk away.

As for the DMing, I think that you did a good job. Like I said, I've enjoyed this. One issue we've had is that the holidays came up, and that tends to nuke things. Especially if things are slowing down.


I'll have a few hard days at work, so we will continue next week, probably mid week
