Endlich haben wir den fiesen Hohepriester des Verschlingers erlegt! Aber ist Rache wirklich so erstrebenswert?
#dnd #4e# rpg #dalelands update: Hollow Vengeance
Finally, when facing the high priest, Nimue will finally learn the reward of vengeance. But for the group this proves to be very valuable effort in their war to free the Dalelands. And there are nice surprises!

Maybe you feel, as though we're showing the raised forefinger here, but I feel such an outcome is vital: Pursuing vengeance should not be fulfilling, it's not a good goal for an endgame, and indeed the result will raise new challenges. I'm looking forward to it.

Ein weiterer Kampf - aber das interessante sind die Randnotizen. Nimue ist immer noch auf Rache aus, und trifft Museo und ihren Bruder Mourim wieder. Die beiden sind von Nimues Auftauchen nicht begeistert, auch wenn sie an dem Dilemma der Seeelfen von Ember Lake keine Schuld trifft. Dafür hat sie sich natürlich andere Dinge zuschulden kommen lassen auf ihrer Suche nach Rache.

Kerrick hingegen will sich von dem dämonischen Einfluss lösen, unter dem er steht. Keine einfache Aufgabe. Glücklicherweise hat er Hilfe, die ihn auf den rechten Weg bringt.

Nimue und Kerrick haben recht ähnliche Probleme, aber gehen sie unterschiedlich an, mit natürlich anderen Effekten.
#dalelands #dnd #rpg #4e Update: Underwater Breakout

After besting the sahuagin reinforcements (before taking on the main force), it is time to finally free the sea elves. Do you think it will be easy?

It's not the breakout itself, that is so immensely interesting, but to see the development and changes for the characters: Kerrick for example is working to readjust his ways, and so far his attempts are showing success. Nimue is facing a similiar dilemma, though more subtle, and with not nearly as much success. I kind of like all this dynamic, and all the options available. It's hard to tell where things will go from now on.

#dalelands #dnd #4e #rpg update: The Deepest Chamber
Down, down below, in the darkness, in the deepest chamber: This is where the downfall of the sahuagin will truly begin.

The heroes face quite a massive fight and a dangerous trap (yes, this one is really dangerous!), but if they turn it around, the sahuagin will pay the price. I love, how powerful characters can feel, if massive amounts of minions are used. And to top things off, Kerrick might find a way out of his own dilemma with demonic entities. Everything might fall apart, but now the chance for true change is palpable for the first time!

#dnd #4e #rpg #dalelands Update: Only the Worthy
On the hunt for Devourer-servants, the heroes run into a trap. And Nimue might find new meaning in her unlife …

It was about time something happened here. Nimue has been looking for vengeance and choosing quickly again, and again. Always with the right intention, but as they say: The road to hell is paved with good intentions. Now there is an option for a much larger game. More than just supporting the Mantled King (which she primary does out of guiilt, for serving the wrong powers for so long; and she is basically alone. Who knows if any of her kin are still alive ...)

#dnd #4e #dalelands update: Dagon at Your Service
We visit Semprey, the water wizard. He shall help us face the sahuagin, but things don’t go as planned …

Things going awry are part of the adventure. When fighting one demonic entity, accepting the help of another demonic entity is probably not a good idea, but for Nimue her vengeance overshadows everything. Let's just hope there is a way to turn things aroung again.

#dnd #4e #dalelands update: Tower Defense
WIr kämpfen (mal wieder) gegen die Sahuagin. Schon beim letzten Mal haben sie uns ja ärger gemacht. Nimue ist zwar der Meinung, dass die Sahuagin und Agenten des Verschlingers mit dem falschen Mantelkönig zusammenarbeiten, aber so richtig wollen die Puzzlestücke nicht zusammenpassen. Vielleicht wissen wir mehr, wenn wir mit Semprey gesprochen haben.
The Sahuagin threat could be averted - temporarily - but apparently the inhabitants of this little harbor town in harrowdale have other things on their mind. The heroes best visit Semprey, the water mage, in his nearby tower. And not a moment too late!

Ah, it feels good to be back in the battle-segment of D&D. I just like it: It's enough of a game for me to get hooked, yet it offers more complexity than any board game I know. To top things off, there's the story part.

Here's what I currently think about: While Nimue is under the impression, that the sahuagin and the fake Mantled King work together, the actions we see here might point in a different direction. The devourer might have his own agenda after all, but does he really? What is it?

Wir sind wieder da. Mit Haien! Sahuagin! Teufeln! Ein großer Kampf gegen eine Mischung aus Minions, normalen und Elite Gegnern, mit etwas Unterstützung. Neue Kontaktmöglichkeiten für die Helden! Und wer weiß, vielleicht auch noch in anderer Hinsicht der Beginn einer Wende in dieser Kampagne?
The decision is made, the heroes set sails for Harrowdale! Well. Maybe not sails, as their astral vessel doesn’t need such pesky things. But just before they arrive, a shark warning is issued!

Finally our vacation vacany... our holiday hiatus ... well, our absence is over, sessions of Dalelands 4e will resume in a somewhat more regular schedule again from now on. Now, have fun watching the heroes rescue a village in Harrowdale!
