We have kind of restarted our old Hellfrost campaign! As Todd would say, and I certainly share the sentiment, “Hooray!”
I say kind of because there are currently five players in the group. Two were not playing back when we were doing the main Hellfrost campaign and one (Todd) has decided that he doesn’t want to play his prior character (Taranis). I, on the other hand, don’t really want to just drop all of what we had done in the prior campaign. I really enjoyed the direction it was heading. So, we’re going to have a little bit of closure with where we were in out last session (Session #19), have a rather harsh winter, and have the campaign start up again with the spring. Rachel is going to keep playing Wulfwynn and RJ is going to keep playing Skuli but Austin, Bridgett, and Todd are all going to start with new characters. This means that Andwik (previously played by Cliff), Cuðbert (previously played by Jamie), Karaphos (previously played by Thomas), Nissa (previously played by Katherine), and Taranis (previously played by Todd) had to go…somehow.
But, before we get to that, I have a confession to make. I suck at running stand-alone modules. As anyone who has looked at this site recently knows, we were playing Pirates of the Crystalflow as something of a practice adventure. Spoiler Alert: There are, obviously, some spoilers for the adventure below the break.
