Style: Mechanics with a little commentary.

Overview: A turn by turn review of all the action as my players continue their adventures in 4th Edition, these guys have completed KOTS (see sig), and want more, and something different. And so without further ado we dived right into the Sellswords of Punjar, the Goodman Games scenario- which proved to be... deadly.

Set again in Fallcrest this thread, like the previous, is a look at the mechanics of the game, what happened turn-by-turn, there's a narrative of sorts but it's mostly numbers and the names of powers, all that's required is a little imagination- maybe...

Reader Comment: (Azkorra) Just wanted to pop in to say that this is actually a nice read. The adventure seems to be rather improvised and I wonder whether your DM really has a kind of plot arc in mind but the campaign world (I love underwater settings) and the pcs are great. I like your writing, too, particularly the cliffhangers ;-) ! Please keep on posting!
