|At the end of last month's games' session, Dirkin went off hunting... and never returned!|
Next Tuesday sees the first of our experimental, spin-off adventures, when two of the player characters - namely Pete's healer Kirchin and his apprentice, Erica's Holly - leave the main group for a short "side trip" (hunting down Kirchin's errant brother, Dirkin).
So far +Tim Shorts's micro-adventures have provided the backbone of our Heroes & Other Worlds campaign (The Chronicles Of Cidri), and I have another lined up to keep our brave (foolhardy?) duo entertained next Tuesday.
While Holly and Kirchin are off on their travels, the rest of Cobblethwaite's Companions (ie. the player-characters of the remainder of the Tuesday Knights) will be sticking with refugee caravan they are escorting to the town of the Bendwyn, ahead of the ever-expanding realm of The Yellow King, which is eating up the ground behind them.
This was all supposed to go down tonight, but I had to postpone this morning because of creeping man-flu.
I've felt rough since Sunday night (headache, sore eyes, bunged up nose etc), and can't seem to shake it at present. But hopefully continued rest and relaxation (ie. my usual routine) will see the germs off and we can get back to the business of killing monsters and stealing their stuff next week.
