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.

log 1, Starting a new town.

date 4/01/2002 L.W.

the guild master of Red Star sat in his office watching the three new recruits who had shown some skill, skill enough for the task at hand. Forcestorm Honda looked at these three with a watchful eye looking for show of leadership. the Green ork wearing heavy armor was strong and loyal but not vary bright his name was N, from the clan igma. there was also a warforged who had an old draconic accent witch was vary heavy and hard too understand, the warforged was vary intelligent but held strong to old dragon views, its name was Pilgramige. the last was a young wizard who was kilic’s apprentice, witch was fitting because Kilic was joining this mission. the mission was simple, go out with a caravan of 30 people, and help aid them in rebuiding Accer Farms. The old Farmland had been abandoned for nearly ten years now and could be used again, Forcestorm lamented not being able to do this sooner but his mind had been pre occupied with other things in the past 2 years since he became the leader of Red Star. His enemies were getting stronger and the situation with Thunder Realm was becoming tense all though the general public had been graced with ignorence of the situation, that would change all too soon. With a quick conversation with these three he found that the Warforged to his surprise was the most qualified to become leader, giving the proper clearance he then had these three sent outside to start the new town under the banner of Red Star. If luck was on there side this town would be the start to an actual plan against the Thunder Realm, it would only be a mater of months before things esculated and this town, Accer Farms was needed dearly if there would be any chance at all.

Unknown to the three new recruits Forcestorm had kept a close eye on them with his familer, a small raven who was named Knock Knock. Forcestorm watched these three that day, N made sure to welcome the curious wolves who were interested in the village. Pilgramige made his Racisisiom known to the kobolds and all other Draconic creatures. the young mage spoke with the villagers spirtual leader and set up rooms for the villagers. so far things were going well.

At night Pilgramige had discovered a secret entence inside the town hall witch led to a laboratory. the three recruits made there way inside finding mutated corpses of humans, some kind of Draconic mutation. further on they found a scientist named Cass the Mad who was attempting to create the perfect creature for his employer named Klaw. He had come close in doing so, a half human, half dragon, half lion, named Draco. a battle ensued and the scientist along with his creation were destroyed. now a few questions remained. what happened to the farming village 10 years ago that made everyone vanish? who was this Klaw and was he a threat? further more what was this research about Draconic Genetic mutation all about?
the new recruits would soon find out and by extension so would Forcestorm.

log 2. night attack

date: 4/01/2002 L.W.

Forcestorm had the insight to send some reinforcements to the village before things got to bad. the two new recruits were chosen for there unique skill sets, but they had unfortunetly been busy earlier so they came in to the village late at night. there was a Bodger who enjoyed fire a little too much, his name was Spanner and he was a good millitary leader. the other was a good scout named Drax. The two arived just in time to meet up with Pilgramige as it got done cleaning out Cass’s lab. they talked a bit and Spanner who did not enjoy most people seamed to become fast friends with the warforged. as the night fell some wolves appeared outside the village long enough to howl before going back to there homes in the dense woods. this howl was a warning for the people living here that a sneak attack was coming from a new threat, as the members of Red Star would soon find out. a sneak attack from some black tendral humanoids happened, and these creatures witch were comprised of a mass of tendral’s put together into a humanoid form attacked members of Red Star using poisioned weapons. the battle was fierce but quick and the party learned quick that these creatures could change there boby structure when threatened, when nearly dead they dropped into a slimly black ooze to escape. the party managed to put the three witch attacked them down for good with fire. but soon they found out that two humans were captured by these things. these creatures are called Zern’s reviled Pilgramige who began to remember his old studies from before he was shut down for 2000 years. they also found out that the kobolds who came with them snuck out during the night. lastly Spanner set up some actual millitia squads, now with the trenches and ramparts this village was becoming defensible. that said these Zerns who were only intrested in kidnapping are a problem, and its time to put a stop to them, hopefully learning more about this villages history in the process.

Log 3. the citadel is made

date: 4/02/2002 L.W.

day 2

Watching from his Raven familure, Forcestorm was able to see his team members working on the town. Spanner aka Sarge started to build better fortifacations along with squads and weapons. Drax discovered that in Cass’s lab there was a bricked up entrance to a vast cave network possible to the underdark. Pilgramige built a citadel out of the ruined buildings using his tellekinisis. at the end of the day they had built the citadel for villagers to sleep in safe and sound, a millitia task force of 4 squads (archer’s, flamers, swords, and spears), and even set up a defense at the cave entrance. Forcestorm was proud of these recruits for building such a defense so quickly.

at night fall the Zern’s came back only this time in full force and as an assault, howver there clan leader Abstract did not expect there to be any real defenses and as the Zern’s lost he attempted to escape. Drax used his infurnal contacts to kill him however. the Zern’s were now defeated and the group was feeling safe but one question still lingered, What do we do about Klaw?

the town was coming along vary well when Forcestorm sent the second caravan containing 15 new settlers who had alot of jobs like smithing and clothiers. along came two new members from Red Star. Pepper and Bar Bar chrom were the two new Red Star members. Allaster (played by Nate) got a flamer from Spanner. the destiler began being drained and a rat problem was discovered in there supplies. after some training with the millitia the group went out to defeat Klaw. in the coming battle the group killed Klaw and inprisoned 3 of the 4 jackleweres under Klaw’s influence. Red Star has now wiped out Slade’s family legacy from the world, but they discovered that Klaw was working with the Crimson Lance devil clan, he offered various religious locations to them with may hold ancient and deadly artifacts, like Dragon’s harts? now that the group has discovered the new threat will they be able to defeat it? lets hope so because Forcestorm is begaining to fear something huge is under way, something that will disrupt all of Ark Dawn maybe even all of Arcadia…
