Return to Hilltop Session 6 (BFRPG)

When we last left our heroes, they had gotten themselves into quite a predicament. Pushing deeper into the complex below the Moathouse, they had leaped from the frying pan (an ogre) and into the fire (the “boss villain” Leighton and being trapped between some bugbears and gnolls). Griff sacrificed himself to break the bugbear defensive line to allow Brenwyn and Molly to escape. The pair did and made their way, battered, bruised, and defeated back to Hilltop, hoping that Griff would somehow join them. We pick up with the pair returning to the village after the break below.

A new player, Forest, joined us this session. He is playing a human thief by the name of Haemon Alcrist. 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 5 (BFRPG)

Apparently, leaving behind dead bodies can lead to good clues. The bodies of the different zombies that the party had defeated in a prior foray to the Moathouse were missing but drag marks were pretty obvious. The marks led to a secret door that led to the next level below the Moathouse. It also led to some ghouls. Although the party was victorious, Griff was paralyzed by the filthy claws of the undead. While waiting for Griff to become mobile again, the rest of the group started exploring this next level and that’s where we will pick up after the break.

Unfortunately, Craig will be taking a break from playing for a bit (until his work life calms down). RJ took up playing Drayton. 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 Muse and my comments, as usual, are in [brackets and italics].
