The Járn Vale

[Below is some information on the Járn Vale. This area is the central location for my Hellfrost campaign. As Wiggy is fond of saying in response to Hellfrost questions, it is your campaign so do what you want…in other words, there are going to be departures from the published material and from anyone else’s campaign (e.g., I think most folks have Dalsetter and Dunross to the north and possibly east of Aslov…mine are to the west). This is definitely a work in progress and I’ll update elements as they get developed a bit. Most of the info here isn’t necessarily things that the PCs are aware of…I’m relying on the players in the campaign to distinguish between player knowledge and character knowledge. ;)]

Warning: Potential spoilers below for the adventure, Lair of the Vermin Lord, from Triple Ace Games…we’ve wrapped it up but there are references to it in the descriptions below.

Hellfrost Session #6

Warning: Potential spoilers below for the adventure, Lair of the Vermin Lord, from Triple Ace Games…we’ve wrapped it up but there may be still be references back to it. There may also be spoilers for the adventure, Jacob’s Well, from Dungeon Magazine #43. I’m not actually using it but it was certainly inspirational and provides a framework for the current situation.

[This entry is from Jamie and is from the perspective of a survivor of the current troubles in Dalsetter and is many years in the future. He took some significant liberties with backstory that, well, isn’t the actual backstory from the game (not that he or the other players know the backstory of what happened at Danr’s). As always, my GM comments in italics and brackets…there will be quite a few since a lot of what happened isn’t covered due to the creative form.]

“Grampy! Grampy! Tell us a story! Tell us the scariest story you know! We are old enough to handle it. We won’t tell Ma, promise!”
