Even a hostile random encounter needn’t be an instant fight. Sneaking or persuading should always be reasonable options, depending on the foes. But what trumps everything is the character’s personalities.

I was imminently please when, upon reaching  a horde of zombies that the party could’ve easily sneaked through, our undead-hating druid shapeshifted into a bear and charged them. What followed was an epic battle that lasted nearly the entire session.

Travel along the River Soshenstar toward Camp Righteous continued. Where last week was mostly a series of standard combat encounters, this time I unleashed several encounters that weren’t directly hostile.

Well, except for the weretiger. Continue reading “Tomb of Annihilation Session 11 Recap”

Chult is a dangerous place, which in D&D terms means a healthy dose of random encounters while traveling in the jungle. Traveling via canoes down a river allows for faster travel, and I house ruled that the party can’t get lost on the river.

But the rivers aren’t entirely safe either, as the party has to deal with crocodiles, waterfalls, and dinosaurs.

It’s the day everyone’s been waiting for – Race Day! I’ve been teasing the dinosaur races ever since my players arrived at Port Nyanzaru. I wanted to save it as one of the last things they did in the city before entering the jungle proper, and I think it was worth the wait.

dms guild reviewGnomes are probably the most overlooked race in Dungeons & Dragons, and no I’m not trying to make a size joke. They’re often portrayed as an in-between combination of the pragmatic, stoic dwarves and free-wheeling halflings. Are they nature-loving hippies or industrious artificers? No one race should boil down to any single profession or trait, but it makes gnomes a bit trickier to pin down, and I don’t see them used very often in adventures.

Enter “Attack on Coppercoil,” which satisfies my gnome curiosity. The titular community, which resides inside a massive hollowed-out tree stump in a forest, is under attack by a sudden raiding party of Duergar who have tunneled up from underneath, and it’s up to the PCs to rescue them.

It’s designed for a party around 3rd level, with adjustments for levels 1-4, and should take about one or two sessions.

After several sessions in Port Nyanzaru, this week provided a bit of a detour. The PCs accepted Rokah’s mission to travel to Fort Beluarian to try and uncover evidence of collusion between the Flaming Fist mercenaries and the pirates of Chult.

Rokah pulled some strings and got them all passage on the Brazen Pegasus for free, able to jump over to the Fort in about half a day. The Fort was open to the public, but the PCs ran into problems almost immediately.
