Return to Hilltop Session 4 (BFRPG)

Ho hum. Killed an ogre, looted its treasure, and found some door barred from the ogre’s side…where is the cliffhanger in that? Come on daHeadRat…you’re losing your edge. We need cliffhangers.

Yeah, yeah…doesn’t the unknown of what an ogre keeps locked out enough of a mystery to count as a cliffhanger? It appeared that all of the players assumed that the door was barred to keep something out of the ogre’s room and not to keep something in whatever room lies beyond the barred door. That, of course, is where we pick up this session below the break…with the party taking the chance of releasing whatever horror(s) lie beyond the door or discovering whatever horror(s) are contained within.

Craig was missing this session so RJ played Drayton…getting to be both brothers of the sibling pairs and getting less then complimentary looks from both sisters. There are definite spoilers for T1 The Village of Hommlet and possibly for A0 Danger at Darkshelf Quarry below the break. This recap is from Rachel and my comments, as usual, are in [brackets and italics].

Return to Hilltop Session 3 (BFRPG)

Oh dear…zombies! After spending a couple of days recovering from their second foray to the moathouse, the siblings headed back to the ruined fortification. They found that the area in which the brigands had camped had been cleared out! Knowing that others have been here since they last were, they were on alert as they headed down some stairs they had previously bypassed…stairs that presumably led down to a cellar. Turned out to be a big cellar with the brigands that they had previously slain now zombies! We pick up this session as the party encounters the zombified brigands.

Muse was missing this session but Bridgett joined us as a guest player and played Brenwyn. There are definite spoilers for T1 The Village of Hommlet and possibly for A0 Danger at Darkshelf Quarry below the break. This recap is from RJ and my comments, as usual, are in [brackets and italics].
