The Borderlands, Chapter 1: Clash at the Borderlands

We’ve kicked of a new campaign called The Borderlands, set in CY 566 on the western frontier of the Yeomanry in the World of Greyhawk campaign setting. It is based on the classic Dungeons & Dragons module B2: Keep on the Borderlands updated to use the 5th Edition rules.

It is also our “D&D Kids” campaign. Three of our kids — two boys, one girl, all 10 years old — wanted to learn how to play D&D. *The Borderlands* is where we do that. The game’s played once a month and supplements our other D&D campaigns.

The first saga is now online and features our stalwart adventurers engaging in their first-ever D&D fight against a band of goblin raiders.  Read the full saga.

Obsidian Frontier, Chapter 31: Itching for Adventure

It has been a miserable winter in Obsidian Bay. Rain and/or snow has been falling a few times a week for the past two months, and the temperature has been hovering around freezing each night. Conditions in the refugee camp have been particularly bad, with the entire area mired in muck during the day, which freezes over with a thin crust each night, the inhabitants coming to be called “the mudsitters” by those more fortunate to have a solid roof over their heads.

Obsidian Frontier, Chapter 30: The Long, Angry Winter

The Long, Angry Winter is a politics-heavy chapter involving the founding of Obsidian Bay as a city-state, with a formal government. In some ways it’s the culmination of the first two years of the campaign, which has chronicled the city’s growth from a fortified village to a true city.  Read the full saga.
