Friends and Foes

Welcome to your Adventure Log!
A blog for your campaign

Every campaign gets an Adventure Log, a blog for your adventures!

While the wiki is great for organizing your campaign world, it’s not the best way to chronicle your adventures. For that purpose, you need a blog!

The Adventure Log will allow you to chronologically order the happenings of your campaign. It serves as the record of what has passed. After each gaming session, come to the Adventure Log and write up what happened. In time, it will grow into a great story!

Best of all, each Adventure Log post is also a wiki page! You can link back and forth with your wiki, characters, and so forth as you wish.

One final tip: Before you jump in and try to write up the entire history for your campaign, take a deep breath. Rather than spending days writing and getting exhausted, I would suggest writing a quick “Story So Far” with only a summary. Then, get back to gaming! Grow your Adventure Log over time, rather than all at once.

A Tough Decision

“A paladin…why’d we have to take a paladin? If there’s any kind of person who could mess this up for us, it’s a paladin.” Jasper complained to his sister.
“It’s alright, he’ll make us less conspicuous,” Camile said in her usual calm, smooth voice. “Besides,” she continued, “another meat shield can’t hurt. Can it?”
Jasper sighed, “I hope not…by the way, you see that orc?” Camile nodded.
“Lookie!” Jasper handed his sister the very well crafted handaxe he lifted off the barbarian.

That evening…

“Is…is the paladin…drunk?!” The utterly confused look on Jasper’s face took Camile by suprise.
“Yes, brother. I believe he is,” she replied in a smug tone.
“Dammit…you win…” Jasper hands his sister a gold coin.

The following morning…

“Arrgh! My head,” the paladin laid his face in his hands in a vain attempt to relieve some of the pain.
“A little sore there buddy?” Jasper arrogantly patted the paladin on the back, making him cringe with each tap.
The paladin sighed heavily, “Yeah…”
“Don’t worry! It gets easier each time!” Jasper pat him a little harder one last time and walked off to his sister. “Classic…” he laughed quietly.

That evening…

“NO! I won’t allow stealing!” The paladin was resolute in his position on the proposed plan.
“Dammit…I knew it…” Jasper mumbled to himself.
“It’s alright! We’ll tell Brannigan, we’ll have the law on our side! You don’t even have to come!” Damon protested.

“Some meat shield…” Jasper said to his sister, “what good’s a shield that stays out of the action?”
“I…um…I don’t know…” Camile handed the coin back to her brother. “You win, for now, but that coin’s gonna be mine. Anyone can be used if you have the right tools.” Jasper gagged and looked away as she adjusted her upper lady parts.

CC Owns the Day!

So there I was, well not just me, standing at the face of a deep dark cave. Friends around me wondering what could possibly be in this cave. No sound can be heard however, something did feel odd about this cave.

It is the only thing that could be housing the so called “beasts” that have been driving the small critters to invade the crops. There must be something in here!

Camile casts light
WAIT!!” screams the warrior Sirus.

Of course, you know what happens next, “GRRRRRRRRRROOOOOOOOOOWWWWWLLLLLLLLL” and out pops a black bear….

“I hate surprises,” I think to myself as I prepare my mind mentally to bring the divine and arcane spells to the surface of my mind. May the power of Pelor guide my hand to see my friends and I safely through this and if it should be let the grace of his power flow through my veins to heal my friends. The Divine is not the only source of power that can help me through this, Arcane magic is also a weapon of my arsenal that has proven useful many times over.

Well the whole clashing of steel, ringing of shields, yelling, and screaming come next but that is not what concerns me. What is the first spell that comes to mind? SLEEP!!!

Lets put these beasts to the test to see if they can over come my god and the power of my SLEEP spell. “Oh Pelor, these wolves and this bear seem to be causing quite a bit of unnecessary damage to my friends. May I ask for the power to put them to sleep so that we may help them into your grace?”

CRRASHHHH A bear and a wolf fall down asleep…

“Thank you my lord for your help and may my faith never waiver!”

Camile and Jasper go to work quickly with Sirus quickly behind. There was still a wolf up and fighting however, that was the least of our problems. Across the river bank about 40 yards away from us, 4 more wolves had appeared and were about to cross the stream.

Now it was time for some good old ingenuity! Time to show off the Arcane side of things. Color Spray is definitely one of those spells you can not miss. However, I can not get close to these wolves because they might have all sorts of diseases and while I could ask Pelor to lend me the strength to heal these diseases, I do not think it wise to ask all the time. This is where my Lizard, Horace, would come in handy! So I drop Horace into the grass in between me and the wolves with the intent that if 2 of the wolves were to come in range I would let loose my Color Spray.

I stuff my hand into my spell component pouch and prepare the incantation that must be spoken to make sure color spray has its full effect.
Brilliant, Rainbow like colors spring from Horace in the direction of 2 wolves that are very close to Camile.

So, those 2 poor puppies were hit straight on by the brilliant colors. They were blind, stunned and unconscious for a long while because of it. So in conclusion, Color Spray is a bad ass spell!

The rest of the fight was pretty irrelevant.

I stood just an inch taller that day.

PARTY LIKE ITS ... When am I?

This group of archers are punks I tell you … PUNKS! “Hey! You guys got room for one more”
“Sir we’re in the finals of the tournament” responds the Elf in charge of the tournament.
“Well … erm … I’ve got winner.” I said and awaited the end of the tournament. The final archer took his last shot, a bullseye, and the crowd erupted with applause. I casually walked up to the spot where he had just claimed victory and casually threw my battle Axe splitting his arrow in half. The whole crowd went silent as I retrieved my lucky Axe from the target, all of the competitors stared in shock as I walked away with all of their winnings.

As my newfound group of friends and I made our way into what appeared to be an old windmill I couldn’t contain the feeling that the party was about to go down, and boy did it go down I took the two military boys with me over to the bar and bought a round with my archery winnings. DAMN!!! That shit will fuck you up, one shot nearly put me out of commission. I was living it up when I saw her. I took one look at her and knew what I had to do. “If you take another shot you will die!!!” said the cleric, a warning I blatantly ignored as I poured two shots of the wicked Brandy that had almost destroyed me, one for myself and one for the most beautiful Elven woman I’ve ever laid eyes on. We toasted … I dont remember what we toasted to

Fuckin’ awesome day!

Took care of Greeman’s shop, though he almost got himself killed sneaking up on us like that. He shouldn’t be so careless…I took care of that first assassin with a single, well placed thrust of my blades, the rest must’ve been pushovers since the rest of the group took care of them.

Druids are the most useful people in the world, I have to say; though they’re also the most sensitive…and…a little odd. Took care of the curse on my ring. I did have to fight my way through that army of ants…not a great idea…but we have had a barbarian so it all worked out.

Apparently…Kip…yeah…lieutenant now…that’s quality guardsmanship right there.

Damned peasants…sure they’re being “repressed” but who isn’t? Everyone’s got problems, I say just kill them (the problems that is…or the peasants, whatever pays better). Regardless, they’ll have less to cry about now that that bomb’s not being blamed on them, thanks, in no small part, to me.

That spa is amazing…that’s all that needs to be said…though, it could’ve gone better, if you know what i mean! (see below if you don’t)

Oh! Last, but certainly not least (in fact, probably most of all), Lost a paladin and gained a gorgeous redhead! She’s not just ordinarily gorgeous either, I’m talkin…drums play when she walks. I will miss that Barker though…somewhat.

Daemon's prayer #1

Lord Pelor,

It is your faithful servant and devout follower Daemon Stonehearth, again. You must be getting quite irritated listening to me all day… but I have something that I must ask. You see two of my friends and comrades, one of which is a follower of your teachings, have fallen in battle.

Lance was a noble paladin that was head strong and courageous till the end. I hear he got eaten by some pretty bad ass crabs, and no I was not there I was talking with the families of the local sailors that have been missing for 2 weeks. However, I digress. Lance helped save a city from a bomb! I witnessed it myself! Now he was pretty stubborn about things, more then a dwarf if that could even be possible. But his head was in the right place.

The other was Barker. Now this barbarian knew how to party like a rock star. Don’t ask what a rock star is, because I don’t even know. He just said it one time and it sounded cool. Maybe its a star that is on a rock? But that doesn’t seem very cool. Well, this barbarian was one of those guys that did not take shit from anyone. He entered a freaking archery tournament with his throwing axe and won! Can you believe it? His only downside was he smelled like shit… oh wait no, it was Muck. He smelled like Muck! I guess its a perfume they sell here in town. Well, he was eaten by the same crabs that ate Lance.

I ask you, oh lord Pelor, take them into your warm embrace and give them a place to go in the afterlife. They both deserve it! I know the paladin will accept it, however I’m not too sure about the barbarian. I wanted to put in a good word for him, you see.

Thank you Pelor!

Your neighborhood cleric,

Daemon Stonehearth

P.S. You might want to give the barbarian a bath, he still probably stinks to high heavens! get it?? haha high heavens…

So we have another great quest with which we can waste our time! A dog is missing…yes, a dog. As usual, we have taken it upon ourselves to scour the city and consult every individual who looks in our direction. We’re surely going to garner ourselves reputations. People are going to think we’re paladins…Especially after doing work for the church of St. Cuthbert and not even getting paid for it. Those cheap bastards. There should be a word for those kinds of people…three letters…starts with a j…oh well.
Not only all of that success, but we’ve managed to pick up another three misfits to replace the two we lost! Damn, this is just perfect! Now we’re an army sent out to search for a missing mutt.
The only really good things that came out of today is that orcish rotgut (looking forward to making that fortitude save) and that treasure we found on that island.
We do so much work and we don’t even get credited with it! I’m not letting anyone go off on their own from now on…Someone needs to take the lead in dealing with our contacts. No more of this awkward shouting from 7 other people “have you seen a dog!?” “where’s the gold?” “I helped too!” Maybe Camille…or even Daemon, I suppose.
I want to get paid for my work…

Crit on "Spa"-ta Check Part 1
This adventuring thing isn't so bad.

Cyrus
I rubbed the scar on my chin trying to process the news. Barker the Barbarian Half-Orc stood out of breath in the middle of the room. Ha had stumbled upon some interesting information while looking for the thieves guild and hurried across town to tell me and the rest of the party.
“So let me get this straight, there’s a peasant activist running around the city threatening to destroy popular noble locations regardless of the casualties?” I managed to put together over his initial rambling.
“Big Boom! They no like Nobles bein bossy.” The Half-Orc grinned proud of himself.
A dribble of spit hung from his chin, a result or the many explosion sounds Barker had imitated during his story.
“They must be stopped! Innocent lives are at risk! Quickly let us leave now!” Lance jumped out of his chair, hand on the hilt of his sword. Like every Paladin he had no trouble filling the stereotype. Where there are innocents in danger you will find a Paladin running head first into said danger.
“Easy Lance, we need to approach this quietly.” Camile said in her calm soft voice. “we don’t want to lose the element of surprise”
“My sister is right, we need to find out potential targets. Anywhere nobles like to hang out.” Jasper butted in. “marketplaces, inns, theaters, taverns..”
“Tavern it is” I interrupted with a grin.


“This place has a spa?!” I exclaimed.

Camile and I were standing at a desk in the corner of the tavern. A pale well kept man stood behind it, his nose slightly up turned while we were in his presence. Behind him a curtain blocked what I presumed to be the entrance to the spa.
“How many are using it right now? Is it popular or what?” I fired out questions. I’m not one to dance around them, sure I sounded like the bomber but to catch the bomber you have to think like a bomber.
“The spa is priced for it’s privacy among other pleasures, it is not our policy to delve information on our clientele. That being said unless you are interested in our services you may move back to your table so other customers may access my assistance.” He sneered. I got ready to reach across the desk and beat the information out of him when I felt a delicate hand on my arm. Camile glanced at me and then asked the man the price.
“Fifty for one or Seventy-Five for the couple’s package”
“Fifty?” I coughed, I eyed Camile, who as usual showed only a look of mild interest.

She leaned over the table placing her hands on the desk. Bringing her elbows together in a way that made her…. “stand out”
“Is there any way we can get a tour, we just want to see the facility.” She cooed. The man showed no reaction aside annoyance. Judging by his hair and clothing he may not be one that Camile’s inventory has effect on.
“Certainty not, again we pride ourselves on privacy and…”
“yea yea yea, exclusive whatever. Alright let me talk it over with my um… wife here.” I pulled Camile to the side to speak private. Using Dwarven tongue to keep pretty boy from listening in.

“Whats ya think” I said to her in butchered Dwarven slang
“Wife?” she responded in the tongue as if insulted.
I rolled my eyes, “Whats ya think?”
“I think you sound drunk and your dwarven accent is horrible” Even for a guttural language she still managed to add that extra coo to her voice that could melt a man.
“No, I meanz what ifin this place be da stonez shits.”
“Excuse me? Watch your tongue”
“It meanz place 2 b” I responded annoyed
“Well if we have too then we can go in, although I will not continue this conversation and let you slaughter the Dwarven language with your horrible slang.” She turned to walk back to the desk.
“That be how I learned it on da Streetz”
“Enough,” she said in common looking back over her shoulder. I felt insulted, my mother would be proud that I even knew what I knew in Dwarven. The Military is not the proper class room for learning a language but what I learned gets me by. I followed her to the desk.
The attendant looked at us with weakly hidden contempt. “Done grunting with each other? Make up your minds?”

I could see for a split second a flair of annoyance cross Camile’s face and just as quickly her smile came through and she was working her charm.
“We have decided to join the spa for the day we will have the…” She paused and glanced at me, “couples package” I nodded with a grin and got an eye roll in response from her.
“Excellent! That will be 75 gold for the package I would like to be the first to thank you and welcome you to our spa.” He said with a grace we had not seen before. He bowed slightly and then looked at me expectantly.
“The hell you lookin…” I was interrupted by a cough from Camile. She tapped her finger on the desk and made a circle motion.
“Oh,” I reached for my coin purse, “wait a sec…” I paused looking back at Camile. She batted her eye lashes and smiled. The attendant raised an eyebrow and his smile subsided slightly. “shitz…” I sighed in Dwarven and took 75 gold from my purse stacking it neatly in front of him on the desk.


We were led past the curtain and into a room with multiple draped areas. There were four small sections on each side of the room just big enough to be changing rooms. The far wall had larger curtain leading even further into the spa.
“Just how far back does this place go?” I wondered to myself aloud.
The attendant made a clapping sound, the large curtains in the back of the room parted and 2 lovely female half-elves entered the room gracefully.
“These ladies will help you to your dressing areas as well as help you stow your goods.”
With a smile and a curtsy they approached us, guiding us each into our own small curtained area. I gave a questioning glance at Camile and she just responded with one that said “go with it”
The half-elf assigned to me went to the closest dressing room and pulled back the curtain revealing a small bench, weapon stand, armor stand as well as some neatly stacked towels. She said nothing but simply smiled and gestured me in. I walked in and set my guisarm on the weapon stand still unsure of my surroundings. I could hear a lute softly being played somewhere and the smell of lavender hung in the air.
“Do you require help with your armor ser?” Startled I turned to the feint mouse like voice of the girl.
“Uhhhhh sure.” I responded dumbly. She scurried over my armor un-strapping and un-clamping like a true pro, removing my breast plate in under a minute.
“Wow, not bad. Where’d you learn your way around armor like that?” I asked, she responded with a mischievous grin and with a slip of the hand my sword belt fell to the floor. I felt my face heating up just as a commotion started outside the dressing room.
“Whoa! Nope! Out!” I could hear Camile’s voice. It was her tone of voice she used with me when I do something wrong. I poked my head through the curtains to make sure she was ok. The dressing room curtains across the way parted as the other half elf hurried out unsure of what she did wrong. Camile followed wrapped in a robe with a look of shock. The robe was slightly too big for her, slipping down one shoulder. Her auburn hair was down and covered the exposed skin almost playfully. The attendant hurried in from the front room.
“Sorry madam what seems to be the issue?”

“The issue is I don’t take kindly to people nibbling my neck without my permission.” Camile snapped. The attendant looked alarmed at her comment.
“My apologies madam I will address the situation.” He beckoned the half-elf girl over to him and started speaking to her in elven in a hushed but angered voice. I didn’t understand a damn thing but I could tell Camile was listening in. He shooed the girl away and turning to Camile put on that big fake smile of his.
“I apologize again madam, Allow me to pay for any of your drinks while staying here. I regret to have troubled you the inconvenience. I will speak with her in private about her transgressions”
Camile collected herself, “No it is fine. It is not her fault, she did not know it was a couple’s package.” The attendant returned to his look of alarm, most likely surprised at her understanding elven.
“uhhh ye-ye-yes, again, drinks on the house, once you are finished getting ready just head to the back curtains.” He said stuttering slightly. Camile nodded
She turned back around towards her dressing room. Her hair swaying to the side revealing the skin the robe was failing to cover. She glanced over her shoulder and saw me poking my head from my dressing room.
“uhhh you umm, uhhh, everything ok?” I said again doing my best half-orc impression.
She turned to face me and gave an amused look as if she knew a joke I didn’t.
“Just a misunderstanding.”
I tried my best to be smooth but couldn’t help it. “Nibbled… your neck?” I said with a stupid grin. Looking at me, her jaw slightly open in a “Are you kidding me…” look. She shook her head in annoyance, noticed her robe was slipping and adjusted it. She walked back into her dressing room and gave me one last glance before closing the curtains. Maybe it was just me but I thought I saw a slight smirk before she closed it.
“Ser? Is everything ok?” I heard the half-elf girls mouse like voice. I pulled my head back into the room and turned. I had completely forgotten she was in the room. “Would you like me ser to help with your trous…. Oh my hee hee hee” She giggled.

“What are you…” I looked down and noticed what she was giggling about. I grabbed a nearby robe and covered myself. “She was nibbling her come on….” I picked up my sword belt off the ground.
“Oh, I could nibble if that is your wish?” She leaned closer to me with a desire in her eyes.
“What? No, wait….. yea no, thanks for the offer, I can finish undressing thank you, ummm please wait outside for me.”
“Whatever suits you,” she walked by clicking her teeth together and I was left alone in the dressing room to think of dead kittens and female ogres.

stupid mutt....

Camile sat in her room at the barracks trying to comprehend the events that had taken place earlier in the day. She still didn’t understand what had all taken place. It all happened so fast. One minute they were searching for some brat’s lost dog, the next minute her brother was killed by a crazed genie, then they found the mutt’s smoldering remains in the Red Robes hall and Cyrus went crazy and tried to kill one of them (although that part was entertaining to watch, now that she looked back on it). What the hell was all that about? It all seemed a little too ridiculous to be reality. Everything would have been fine had they not gone looking for that stupid dog, but of course the group of do-gooders she and her brother were traveling with couldn’t seem to leave anything alone. Thanks to their escapades the group had already lost the paladin, the rich guy and now Jasper.

For a brief second she began to tear up, but quickly regained her composure. Even though there was nobody around to see her cry, she refused to let her emotions get the best of her. She couldn’t have anyone see her in such a weakened state. She was a lady after all, and such was not the way of a true lady. Not to mention a woman’s tears were often seen as an invitation for most men. That is the last thing she wanted, although Cyrus was turning out to be more charming than she originally thought him to be. Yet, the only man she ever felt she needed lay lifeless in the church of Pelor. Boy would Jasper get a kick out of that when he got resurrected. Well, if he were to get resurrected. He still had to win Pelor’s favor before he could come back. Hopefully he wouldn’t run his mouth and piss off the deity. Who knows what might happen to him then.

She sat up on the poor excuse for a bed Sergeant Kip had bestowed upon her. He claimed it was the best bed in the whole barracks, save for his own, which he immediately offered to her promising to carry to her quarters himself if she so wished. There were certain perks to being a lady, especially if you knew how to play your cards right. Kip was a good boy, exactly the type she preferred to handle. But even his ridiculous attempts at pleasing her were less than satisfying with the pressing thought of her brother’s passing. At least she got her own room, even if the décor was a bit too… rustic for her taste. Surprisingly she was just grateful she had a place to sleep where she wouldn’t be bothered for the rest of the evening. CRASH

Just then she heard a loud crash in the hall, followed by someone pounding on her door. She had just gotten up to answer it, when the door burst open. Cyrus stood in the doorway cradling a jug of what Camile presumed to be some sort of alcohol. In a poor attempt to hide both his drunkenness and his obvious attraction to her, he swaggered over to her and held out his hand. He had planned to sweep her off her feet and comfort her in her time of need, and he always found the best remedy for any situation was alcohol. Yet Cyrus knew that this one was different than most of the ladies he was used to encountering and it would require a little more class to impress her. So, speaking in his best Elven he spoke to her. It had been a while, and he wasn’t the best at speaking foreign languages when he was inebriated, but he was feeling rather confident he would be able to pull it off. He didn’t know if it was the alcohol or his awesomeness fueling his confidence, but either way he was gonna take the shot.

“Come nao Camile,” he slurred, “the …hic… night iz a baby annn we drinkinggg it… away.”

“I thought I told you the other night in the spa, your Dwarven is terrible,” She stated, slightly amused at his efforts. She thought it strange how despite his drunken state she found him somewhat … she couldn’t quite find the word for it.

“What do you mean? That was Elven,” He protested in common. He was sure he had spoke Elven. She was completely mad… and completely hot, he thought.

“Dear Cyrus,” she said placing her delicate hand on his cheek, “Do you even know Elven?”
Cyrus paused for a second and thought. After a few moments he gave her a blank stare and said confused, “I don’t know! I thought I did, I was sure I did… damnit!”

Before he could analyze situation he had gotten himself into, and without thinking Camile spoke, “Yes, I would love to have a drink with you.”

CAAAAAAAAAAAATS!!!

“Cats … Why’d it have to be cats?”
“Calm down Houdini its just a bunch of house cats. I’m not even gonna have to waste a sp-AAAAHHHHHHHH!”
Eric can be so arrogant sometimes, I took a small bit of pleasure as he bragged about taking out cats and suddenly had his bootlaces clawed at by a small tabby cat. This was how the conversation between Eric, my necromancing partner in crime and myself Houdini, Eric’s ever present Draconic speaking Raven. We’d wandered for a long while after the “Accident” and subsequent “Schooling” from that Street Smart Elf who took advantage of my Knowledge seeking companion. We’d been in our share of battles with animals of all shapes and sizes but these filthy cats were by far one of the strangest encounters we’ve ever faced. Luckily we had recently joined up with this rag tag group of misfits half of whom (the military men) were always seeking to help anyone (and I do mean anyone, I never thought I’d see myself as a Dog Catcher) and the other half (the siblings) seemed completely out for themselves. As for Eric and myself, well we just happy to be with an adventuring group so willing to go out and see new places and seek new knowledge, at least we were seeking knowledge.
After the house cats and the subsequent wolverines at the contaminated spring we quickly headed back to town where we headed to a local shop with the lovely Camille and her brother to see about this lantern that they had found … inside an ant … I wish I was making this up. As insane as that sounds what happened next completely blew that out of the water. The man in the shop after gettings his lantern back decided it would be a great idea to open it, and although a great man was lost in this heated battle with a genie … hilarity ensued.
