    Shemeska's Planescape Storyhour - (Updated 31July2020)

    That's one of the two things seen so far that connect to what Daru ib Shamiq said. :)

    Shemeska's Planescape Storyhour - (Updated 31July2020)

    Dregoth stepped forward, the cracked flesh of his draconic muzzle split to a predator’s smile, and as he descended the steps from his throne it became transparently obvious that his eyes were fixed on Daru’s box and not at all on the companions who had arrived carrying it. They were immaterial...

    Shemeska's Planescape Storyhour - (Updated 31July2020)

    The cavern was devoid of light and indeed devoid of life itself, save for the chosen children of the living god, the great one in whose service the heptad of guards served with their very lives, they who presently stood silent watch over the mock doorway cut into the solid rock before them...

    Shemeska's Planescape Storyhour - (Updated 31July2020)

    Clinical rotations for the past two months. 4th year of pharmacy school. I have this month off, but of course accepted some freelance work. That said I -will- have an update this month, and it's already in progress. Apologies for the prolonged delay.

    Shemeska's Planescape Storyhour - (Updated 31July2020)

    We played with 3e rules, and since I never actually played 2e, I never used any of the specific, thematic but IMO ultra fiddly rules that Planescape had regarding clerics and other things as you moved around the planes. As for how I handled Athas, you'll see soon enough. The players were like...

    Shemeska's Planescape Storyhour - (Updated 31July2020)

    “F*ck…” Clueless spat, staring down at Daru’s damnable box. The inhuman face carved into its surface stared back at him maliciously, lips and teeth stained red with slowly drying blood. They’d of course been responsible for delivering it to its victim, though of course the necromancer had...

    Shemeska's Planescape Storyhour - (Updated 31July2020)

    Unlikely, as I have an unannounced Pathfinder project final draft due on Monday, and a pharmacotherapy exam on Tuesday. A week after that is not an unreasonable thought however. :)

    Shemeska's Planescape Storyhour - (Updated 31July2020)

    Six sets of eyes blinked in unison, not at the appearance of the necromancer, Muroth Chalmar, but at his statement, and the implication that Tristol was one of Mystra’s Chosen. The aasimar turned around with a brief, embarrassed smile and waved off the blizzard of questions. “He’ll explain...

    Shemeska's Planescape Storyhour - (Updated 31July2020)

    Not Jeremo, but the original "Jester" of which the Palace of the Jester is named. As for what the creature there was, you'll find out later on in the storyhour. To say what it is within the context of the campaign would be a reveal to a few things, both mentioned already and not. That being...

    Shemeska's Planescape Storyhour - (Updated 31July2020)

    Thank you so much! blush I get such questions occasionally, but I try to avoid answering them because of the risk of someone then spoiling the story for everyone else. Given that I've been slowly working at this for over a decade, I want the eventual end to come on my own terms and my own pace...

    General Gore in D&D

    Yeah it's all about knowing the expectations of your players and their desire for/tolerance of that sort of content. I make sure that everyone at the table is aware of the themes and tone that they'll be facing prior to a game and adjust as necessary from there. Plus when I was running my...

    Shemeska's Planescape Storyhour - (Updated 31July2020)

    Helekanalith paused to adjust his glasses, then with a single fluid motion he returned to taking notes. The Keeper of the Tower sat in his office, staring across his desk at the trio of senior apprentices who stood there, their eyes glazed over, staring into space. One of them, a...

    Writing the next update now. We'll meet Larsdana ap Neut in person, for the first time, this next update. :D

    5E Where does negative energy fit into the D&D chrono-cosmology?

    The situation is muddied a bit by 4e content using its own cosmology with no continuity to Planescape, and then by 5e incorporating elements of 4e piecemeal while also attempting to harken back to the Great Wheel cosmology of pre-4e D&D (with a mixed end result I suppose, but more successes than...

    Shemeska's Planescape Storyhour - (Updated 31July2020)

    It's an apt comparison. I tend to use them as particularly malicious forces of nature. A thunderstorm slowly rolling over a mountain and darkening a forest, the wind carrying a faint static charge raising the hair on the back of your neck as it draws near and the breeze rattles the nearest...

    Shemeska's Planescape Storyhour - (Updated 31July2020)

    The snarl that cut the air was cold and aberrant, followed by the chittering clack of mandibles as a ghostly, phosphorescent figure manifested behind Toras, an equally ghostly trident clutched in two of its four insectile arms. Without warning to Tristol’s magic or even to Fyrehowl’s...

    Shemeska's Planescape Storyhour - (Updated 31July2020)

    Surefoot made some cameo appearances late in the campaign (as IIRC they were created by Clueless's player and so there was impetus to have them reappear in the mainline game), but Ashlanaya does not, having basically gotten out of Dodge while the getting out was good to avoid Shemeska tying up...

    Shemeska's Planescape Storyhour - (Updated 31July2020)

    Alex was a PC, albeit a short lived one. Some of the story elements associated with him (such as former Bleaker Factol Tollysalmon) get explored later on.

    Shemeska's Planescape Storyhour - (Updated 31July2020)

    Gehenna’s gatetown of Torch could never be said to be a pleasant destination, but from the base of the ancient baernaloth construct the Oblivion Compass, it certainly was by comparison. The relief the party felt the moment the magic of Tristol’s planeshift snatched them away and deposited them...

    Harishek ap Thulkesh, the Blind Clockmaker. One of The Demented. Also one of only two named baernaloths in D&D printed canon (courtesy of me in Dragon magazine). link to the story, which is admittedly spoilers for the storyhour
